Brady gets apology

National Football League quarterback Tom Brady’s relationship with new hometown Tampa is back on track, after the city’s mayor offered a cheerful apology to the six-time Super Bowl winner over an incident that saw him ejected from a local park that was closed under coronavirus precautions. Brady, who signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after a successful two-decade tenure with the New England Patriots, was spotted working out in the park by a recreation worker and was asked to leave, Mayor Jane Castor confirmed this week. “Tom, my apologies for the miscommunication when you arrived — not the best first impression,” Castor wrote in a statement posted to Twitter on Saturday. “But given my law enforcement background, I couldn’t help but have someone investigate the sighting of a G.O.A.T. running wild in one of our beautiful city parks. No harm — no foul, and thanks for being a good sport.” The 42-year-old’s blockbuster arrival in Tampa, along with newly traded teammate Rob Gronkowski, has been dimmed somewhat under the shutdown, as he aims to become only the second quarterback to win a Super Bowl title with two different teams.
