There is nothing wrong with getting high and playing video games. A rant about Tom Brady’s retirement

There is nothing wrong with getting high and playing video games. Absolutely nothing. As long as it’s done so in your free time and isn’t interfering with your basic responsibilities.

Hey. By the way Did you hear Tom Brady retired? That NFL quarterback. That guy who is really good at throwing balls. Known as the best ball thrower in the history of the NFL. Yeah that guy. He takes throwing balls very seriously. Trust me, I would know. I read his book. “The TB12 method”. It was a book about applying his methods to improve the health and function of your body. After reading said book it is clear he made many sacrifices to improve his ball throwing. He incorporates an insanely strict and meticulous diet and workout regimen that is probably unsustainable for 99% of the readers.

He is clearly obsessed with being the best ball thrower possible and wants his readers to also improve their ball throwing by applying his methods. Or does he? Well actually, now that I think of it, he certainly advertised his products a lot. His ridiculously priced foam rollers and health supplements are brought up constantly, clearly to the detriment of the quality of the book. The back of the book his filled with positive customer reviews for his TB12 products. Yep. Customer reviews. In a book. Absolutely ridiculous. Making it abundantly clear he could care less about helping any of his readers and just wants you to buy his shit. Increasing his already massive net worth. His net worth currently listed at 512 million by the way. And apparently that’s not enough. Shortly after his second retirement he has signed a TV deal with Fox. For many millions of dollars. The guy played 23 years in the NFL, made a fortune, and cant even go a month into his retirement before signing a contract to once again become an employee.

If you don’t mind me asking, Reader, (assuming anybody actually reads this) if you had a net worth of 512 million dollars, would you be actively seeking employment? seeking to have a boss dictate your life? Yeah I don’t think so. I sure as hell wouldn’t. No matter how cushy and high paying the gig was. If he wanted to talk about sports for fun, he could do his own thing, start a youtube channel. Play by his own rules. But no. That’s too laid back apparently. He needs to make 8 or 9 figures. Increase his already massive net worth.

And listen, I’m not even trying to hate on the guy, even if it sounds that way. None of this makes him a bad person. He is just an extreme person. The type of extreme person that is so damn competitive and obsessed with being the best, that he ends up as the greatest quarterback of all time. The type of person that want’s to swindle your money into buying his Tb12 products, and the type of person that wants a job when he already has a fortune. It’s just how he is wired. So if your reading this and your frustrated with the fact that your not actively “Achieving something” or “being productive” with your free time, and you would prefer to just relax, get high, play video games, eat a bunch Cheetos or whatever, don’t worry about it. There’s nothing wrong with you. Tom Brady probably wishes he could copy your unproductive behaviour. But he can’t. So be grateful that you can, and stop listening to close minded people that say you need to change into something your not. You don’t. It’s bullshit.
