“One of the coolest moments off the field with Tom Brady was this past summer, we’re in Montana,” Andrews said, per the New York Post. “My dad came to visit, and it was the final day Tom was throwing before he had to leave, and I said, ‘Dad, do you want to go watch Tom throw? Do you want to go meet him?’ And he said, ‘Let’s go do it.'”

Andrews admitted that she had a little too much to drink the night before. But when Brady reached out in need of her help, she shook off the hangover and got to business with no hesitation:

“Tom said, ‘EA, I need you,’ and I said, ‘For what?’ And he goes, ‘You gotta shag balls, girl, I don’t have anyone out here,'” she continued. “I just thought to myself, ‘I know how competitive he is. If I don’t line these footballs up correctly, if I don’t bring them back at the right time.' My husband would catch the ball, he would throw it to me, I would put it in the bag. So this happened like eight times, and then once the duffle bag was full, I said, ‘What do I do? What do I do?’ Jarret’s like, ‘Go run it to him.'”

“I did this probably like ten times and each time I’d run the bag back he’s getting worked on by Alex, he’s like, ‘Thanks, thanks EA.’ And I was like, ‘Best day of my life,' Andrews concluded.
