Tom Brady joined Twitter on Monday, and immediately made every football fan’s heart drop.

“I’m retiring,” Brady tweeted. “In my spare time, I’ll be tweeting. #LFG”


For one moment, I was stunned that the greatest football player to ever walk the earth was hanging it up. Then, I checked the date. (RELATED: Chris Evans Says He Can’t Play Tom Brady If He Still Supports Donald Trump)

I think April Fools’ day is officially over, because Brady’s tweet just put every other joke to shame. The guy is just such a winner.

The biggest news here is Brady finally joining Twitter. The GOAT has dabbled on other social media sites, such as Facebook and Instagram, but Twitter is a game changer. (RELATED: Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady Drops F-Bomb In Awesome Postgame Interview)

Maybe this is a sign that Brady’s mellowing?

I doubt it. He’s probably got another two or three Super Bowls up his sleeve.

What a legend.
