Like him or not, we have to come to the same conclusion: Tom Brady is the best NFL quarterback and one of the coolest human beings of all-time. Since his start in 2001, Brady climbed his way up from benchwarmer to Pro Bowler, puts up Hall of Fame numbers season after season, starred in an Entourage episode, and is married to the hottest woman on the planet.

We hold our celebs up to ridiculous images standards. We know this. They’re expected to look magazine-cover flawless at all times — perfect rosy lips, streamlined unibrows, high-fashion outfits, perfectly toned bodies (and that’s just the guys). One of the few times they should get to indulge in letting it all go is when they’re working out.

The art of the celeb side hustle is nothing new. Since the dawn of man, financially-savvy entertainers have been exploring business options outside of movies, albums and TV shows — to varying degrees of success, of course (anyone remember Fashion Cafe?

Of course, the usual A-list side endeavors include starting restaurants, backing clothing lines or, in Ashton Kutcher’s case, putting star muscle behind smartly conceived tech startups. Recently, Jay Z., in all his big-baller glory, has set the bar by buying sports teams and launching a sports agenting company.
Thanksgiving is all about eating turkey, spending time with loved ones and watching a great football game.

Our eyes are on something other than the pigskin.
