The Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers visited the White House today and star quarterback Tom Brady came with some jokes.

While addressing his team and President Biden, Brady referenced a play in the 2020 NFL season when he forgot what down it was during a game.

“We had a game in Chicago where I forgot what down it was. I lost track of one down in 21 years of playing, and they started calling me Sleepy Tom.”

This of course was a reference to the “Sleepy Joe” nickname that former President Donald Trump and other conservative political figures called Biden in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election.

Brady had more jokes for President Biden.

“Not a lot of people think we could’ve won,” Brady joked. “In fact, I think about 40% of the people still don’t think we won.”

“I understand that,” Biden chimed in with a smile.

Championship teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB usually visit the White House after their seasons end — the tradition dates back to 1865.

The Buccaneers’ visit was the first time since 2017 an NFL team came to the White House after a Super Bowl victory. Players and team officials had various public feuds with then-President Trump and elected not to visit.

Brady declined visits to the White House in the past while Barack Obama and Donald Trump were president, despite calling Trump a “great friend.”
