We would advise Tom Brady to not quit his day job.

But from the looks of his T-shirt, there is no danger of that happening.

Appearing at the Boston Red Sox home opener today at Fenway Park to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, the hunky New England Patriots quarterback wore a T-shirt boasting a big, bold No. "5" on the front.

Quite the statement for the four-time Super Bowl winner to make, don't you think?

Ultimately, the 37-year-old MVP of Super Bowl XLIX managed a twofer with that shirt on Monday: He shut down, for the time being anyway, the will-he-go-out-on-top retirement talk that was presumably going to follow him into training camp this year, making it pretty darn clear that he's gunning for ring No. 5.

And he managed to take at least some of the Internet's attention away from his spectacularly mediocre throw. (Mediocre for one of the greatest all-time QBs, that is, not for the likes of say, 50 Cent.)

MVP of this exchange goes to Red Sox veteran David Ortiz for managing to catch Brady's throw on the bounce, Big Papi's deft maneuver showing that he hasn't gone to seed in that DH spot.

Not even Rob Gronkowski could have played it any better.

At least Brady, who adorably was the first to laugh at himself as he trotted over to home plate to give Ortiz a hug, was still having a ball.
