There was much back and forth between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks during this past Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX, but the star play of the game easily was awarded to Malcolm Butler’s interception of Russell Wilson, turning the tide for the Patriots with only thirty seconds left in the game.
But Butler wasn’t the game’s MVP, instead, the honors were awarded to all-star-living-legend-male-model-super-dad-quarterback Tom Brady, who received a brand new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado as part of the award. Brady recognizes it wasn’t all about him, though, and is working on handing the Colorado to Butler instead.
During an interview with a local Boston radio program, Brady was outspoken on Butler’s performance, and when asked if he would consider giving the truck to the rookie player he immediately replied, “I would love to give him the truck, I would love to do that. I’m going to figure out how to make that work.”
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado lists for $35,000, a drop in the bucket compared to Brady’s $150 million salary and endorsements he received in 2014. Although, Butler’s isn’t sitting too shabby himself either, making a reported $420,000 as the league sets as its minimum salary.
Regardless, as the old saying goes, it’s the thought that counts.
