FOXBORO (CBS) — Two just-married New England Patriots fans are suspending their own honeymoon until Tom Brady can take the field again.
The NFL has punished the star quarterback with a four-game suspension for being “generally aware” that the Patriots were deflating footballs to below the league limit.
Paul and Kellie Goodrow, married on May 9, went to Sunday’s “Free Tom Brady” rally in Foxboro with their own unique show of support: they’re postponing a honeymoon to Bermuda as long as the suspension stands.
“Til Brady is back on the field, that’s the way it is,” Paul Goodrow said. “I’ve been a fan my whole life, since 1982. Actually, I have tattoos of Tom Brady on my body.”
The Watertown newlyweds had started planning their trip when the suspension came down.
“It’s OK, we’ll eventually go on it,” Kellie Goodrow said.
She said they “live, eat and sleep Patriots,” and her husband agrees.
“Our whole house is Patriots. It’s like a man cave,” he said. “It’s like my wife doesn’t even live there.”
The couple said they thought it was important to come out to the rally that attracted hundreds of other Patriots fans.
“We said we’re going to come here and do what we need to do to support our QB,” Paul Goodrow said. “We love Tom Brady and we support him fully.”
