Tom Brady is preparing to play in his seventh Super Bowl, but the New England Patriots’ star quarterback still gets emotional when he talks about his father.

The hardest question Brady fielded Monday at Super Bowl LI Opening Night in Houston might have come from a 7-year-old boy who asked about the future Hall of Famer’s hero.

Tom Brady Sr. made news Friday when he expressed his opinion of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, which led to the four-time Super Bowl champion jokingly banning his father from talking to the media.

There are few things like the bond between a father and his son.
