Oh no he didn’t. Plant City now has a clear choice on who to root for Sunday in Super Bowl 53. New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert a while back to promote his book about eating right. One would think fruits and vegetables are a key to a healthy lifestyle.

Tom is in his 40s and told Colbert that he HATES strawberries. In fact, he had NEVER even eaten a strawberry. Brady said he just always hated the smell. That’s when Colbert put a bowl in front of him and insisted he try one. Tom’s response: “Not that bad.” Not that bad? NOT THAT BAD? What’s the matter Tom, were they too inflated for your liking?

Well Tom, if you win Sunday, you might be going to Disney World… but don’t head west on I-4 because Plant City will be waiting… with strawberries. And shortcake. And strawberry shakes. And Amish doughnuts. And Fiske fries. And funnel bacon on a stick. And doughnut burgers. Man, is it Florida Strawberry Festival time yet?
