On some level, Tom Brady has earned the right to be picky.

His football career is one for the books—even if you're divided on Deflategate. His athletic accomplishments alone are enough to inflate what may have started as the humblest of egos, but when you consider the fact that the man is married to supermodel Gisele Bundchen, you can probably see how Brady might come to demand a certain aesthetic in all facets of his life.

Thanks to the 1,000-plus pages of emails recently released from the Deflategate investigation, we've gotten some insight into what life as Tom Brady is really like. In a handful of excerpts (like these screen-grabbed by Business Insider), the New England Patriots quarterback comes off a little bit like a diva.

To be fair, Brady's problems are not like ours. In one particular interchange, he can't believe he has to buy an $8,500 pool cover for the winter when he already has one that works! (Hey, even multimillionaires don't like wasting money!)

He goes on to whine that the pool industry is made up of "f--king idiots" and is then indignant with the "morons" who don't have a white pool cover. Finally, as shown by Business Insider, Mrs. Brady settles this whole pool debacle.

"G decided on gray," writes Brady's manager, "and order is in."

Well played, Bündchen.
