Tom Brady wore a big hat on Thursday night, and the world took notice.
After the Patriots 10-3 preseason win over the Carolina Panthers, Tom Brady took to the post-game podium in a hat that was pretty much impossible not to comment on.
“I like the hat,” a reporter said to open the presser. “Thank you,” Brady replied.
“A Cam Newton special?” the reporter asked, citing Brady’s preseason opponent on the Panthers that is known for his style and once wore a strikingly similar hat.
“Yeah, he’s got a similar style,” Brady said. “He wears it a little better, though.”
Brady then carried on with the presser as he usually would, but on Twitter, fans were quick to come up with jokes.

AND NORTH HAVERBROOK.

Tom Brady: Ha-ha! Yeah, I found this backstage, an over-sized hat. It’s funny.
Alex Trebek: No, it’s not!
Tom Brady: Sure it is. It’s funny. It’s funny because it’s ah, bigger than, ah…you know, a normal hat. pic.twitter.com/MEYDIEC1vv

Maybe I just don’t understand sports or fashion but I don’t really see the issue with Tom Brady’s new hat pic.twitter.com/gDsCHxuK2m

Brady was in on the joke and teased an even bigger fashion update that could potentially come in the regular season.
