If Tom Brady has made one thing clear this offseason, it's that he hates strawberries. As a matter of fact, before 2018, Brady had never even eaten a strawberry during his 40-and-a-half years on the earth. However, that all changed on March 12, when Stephen Colbert somehow convinced Brady to eat a strawberry for the first-time ever during a visit to "The Late Show." That event might have psychologically scarred Brady, because he was still talking about it this week. During a recent interview with NPR's Wait Wait … Don't Tell Me!, we found out that Brady hates strawberries so much that it will make him cuss, and we also found out that he'll sneak in a shot at NFL defensive coordinators whenever he can. First, the strawberries. During the NPR interview, Brady gave a full explanation fro why he hates strawberries. "I grew up in California and I had an aunt that lived in Central California. And when she'd drive to see us, she would stop at the fruit stands on the side of the road, and she'd get these big trays of strawberries," Brady said, via NPR.org. "And she'd bring them up to our house, and she would put them into our refrigerator. And every time the refrigerator door was opened, the smell of strawberries would permeate the room. And I could not stand it. And since then, I've never eaten a strawberry. The thought of a strawberry is just ... terrible for me." Basically, Brady hates the smell of strawberries and he's apparently been tortured by it his entire life.
