Tom Brady: I sleep in and enjoy the morning. I live south of Boston in Quincy, near a bay where lots of people house their boats in summertime. I love waking up near the water. There's a great waterfront scene down there with some terrific restaurants. There's a path near my place and I love walking along the water. Other mornings, I drive up to New Hampshire. So many places are close. Providence is only 45 miles away. Cape Cod is 45 minutes from me - there are some great bed-and-breakfasts to check out for a long weekend. And Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are just a short boat ride away.
American Way: What other activities do you like to do in the morning?
Brady: I practice yoga at Baptiste Power Yoga, which has studios around town. It's great for flexibility, it's therapeutic, and great for your attitude. And it gets you some silence during your day. During the season, I use videotapes and do it on my own. A lot of my teammates have tried it. When you get to this elite physical level, everyone's trying something - acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, whatever. Also, two of my sisters live close and they're really competitive, so they always try to drag me down to The Sports Club/LA, where we play some one-on-one basketball. I was brought up in a very competitive family.

American Way: We know golf is one of your hobbies. What's your handicap and where do you like to play around town?
Brady: I'm probably about a 7-handicap. I've been playing since I was two, when my dad took me out, and like most people, I'd like to play more. During the season, I'll play on an off day, or we might sneak out for a day on our bye week. But mostly, it's in the off-season. If we have all day, my buddies and I will travel down to the Cape, where Sandwich Hollows, Waverly Oaks, and Willowbend [the latter is a private course] are my three favorites. The setting is very serene, yet you kind of get a little of everything - some water, some trees, a little bit of sand, some challenging courses. It's a great getaway.
