Brady to Patriots Fans: "Start Drinking Early"
Tom Brady wants loud fans cheering for his team in Sunday's home opener.
He even had a suggestion for their pregame activities.
The Patriots quarterback grinned and drew laughter from reporters on Wednesday when he said fans should "start drinking early."
Less than an hour later, team spokesman Stacey James said Brady wanted to clarify his remarks.
James said Brady wants everyone to drink a lot of water, stay hydrated and drink responsibly.
New England faces the San Diego Chargers on Sunday after both won their opening games.
Last September, Brady said he wasn't happy that fans left Gillette Stadium early in a season-opening 38-24 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
