You know that Twitter game of “How it started vs. how it’s going”?
Let’s play with NFL great Tom Brady, shall we?
First up, HOW IT STARTED. . .
The wealthy QB took in almost $1 million in PPP loans for his struggling small business:

And, yes, this is real. From CNBC:
TB12 Inc., based in Massachusetts, received the loan on April 15, 2020, as part of the small business lending program created under the $2 trillion CARES Act passed by Congress and the Trump administration in March. The loan was processed by Cambridge Savings Bank.
Now for, HOW IT’S GOING. . .
Nice new boat, Tom:

Even better? He named the super boat after his wife’s environmental charity:
"It's a beautiful blue boat named 'Viva a Vida' — which happens to be the name of Gisele's environmental conservation initiative." https://t.co/XnYxnwq2Oa
