Boston Photoshop Superstar Tom Brady Joins the Bruins

Boston Photoshop Superstar Tom Brady Joins the Bruins

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is showing off his Photoshop skills as he joins the Boston Bruins. While we haven’t seen him in any of our Photoshop classes in Boston, it looks like he is spending his time off the field having some fun while photoshopping images. Even if you aren't a Patriots or Brady fan, his recent Photoshop work that he shared is worth a laugh.

In a Facebook post this week Brady uses an image editing tool, such as Photoshop, to insert himself onto the Boston Bruins bench. In the picture Boston Bruins player Brad Marchand has skated over to the bench and Brady, in his Patriot’s jersey, is seen waiving to Marchand who has his back to the camera. The post reads “Good luck to the Bruins this year! Let me know if you need another enforcer out there...” and it is tagged as being with Brad Marchand 63. While football is a rough sport, and Brady takes his share of sacks, he’s equally well known for sliding to avoid an unnecessary tackle and is a rather unlikely candidate for the role of an enforcer, or tough-guy, especially in hockey which is emphasizing more skating and scoring, and less tough-guy antics.

The Boston sports teams and players have a long history of supporting one another, and over the past decade the championship trophies from professional basketball, football, and hockey have all visited each other’s respective stadiums. Yet this is the first time in recent memory that we’ve seen the power of Photoshop used to move a player onto another team’s bench. Maybe next we’ll see Brady, with some help from Photoshop, on the Boston Celtics bench or using Photoshop to become part of the Boston Red Sox.
