Tom Brady doesn’t like to lose and on the rare times he does, he reacts in a way that blurs the line between “tough competitor” and “sore loser.”

Last Sunday, Brady experienced something he hadn’t experienced in 15 years. He was on the losing end of a shutout. The Saints defeated the Buccaneers 9-0 and after throwing a late interception, Brady took his frustration out on the Microsoft Surface tablet by tossing it to the ground.

On his Let’s Go! podcast, Brady revealed to host Jim Gray why he tossed the tablet to the ground.

“I didn’t want to throw an interception with that tablet, so I made sure it hit the ground.”

Okay, it’s not the exact reason Brady did it but it was a funny and self-deprecating response to a rather less-than-stellar moment. After having some time to reflect, it’s clear Brady learned to laugh about it than to let it get to him throughout the week.
