Tom Brady grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the midst of the 49ers-Cowboys rivalry, and it’s safe to say that old allegiances don’t go away easily.
Brady, who grew up a 49ers fan, jokingly admitted Wednesday that he has hated the Cowboys “since coming out of the womb” and growing up in San Francisco.

The Patriots and Cowboys face off Sunday afternoon. It’s worth noting that Brady has beaten the Cowboys in all four games he’s faced them, including one five touchdown performance in 2007. Extra motivation? Probably not, considering Brady is always pretty motivated and he’s clearly exaggerating a bit here. Plus, he has some other pressing issues about his team that he’s trying to get right. Still, it’s safe to say he enjoys the prospect.
