With about 24 hours to go before he takes the field at Gillette Stadium as a visitor for the first time, Tom Brady has touched down in New England.
Joe Kayata of Providence’s NBC 10 tweeted a video at 8:20 p.m. ET Saturday that showed Brady getting off of a bus and checking into the team’s hotel in Rhode Island. And yes, it’s every bit as strange a sight as you might expect.
The Patriots legend arrived to a crowd chanting his name, and he smiled and waved at fans.
Brady seemed to respond well to the warm welcome, though it certainly is nothing compared to what awaits him in Foxboro on Sunday night.
