With the MLB lockout finally a thing of the past, we can finally start to focus on baseball in 2022.
Or so we thought.
Just as baseball appeared to be taking the spotlight back, Tom Brady had other plans.
After having retired from the NFL following this past season, it appears that Brady is planning on coming back and playing at least one more season.
Brady’s retirement lasted all of 40 days, while the MLB lockout went almost 100, which of course states the obvious, that the MLB lockout lasted longer than Brady’s retirement, and that it was almost inevitable that Brady would return.

Brady Steals The Show Again
This is an interesting piece of information.
The MLB lockout didn’t need to happen, but because it did, baseball lost its place in the spotlight.
And just as things were starting to heat up again for baseball, Brady came back and stole the show one last time.
As previously mentioned, it was pretty much inevitable that Brady would make a decision to come back.
It should come as no surprise to anybody.
And it’s interesting that his return is upon us, and his retirement was so brief that even the MLB lockout lasted longer.
This goes to show how baseball has lost some of its mojo.
It’s a sad reality for the sport when just as the season is about to start, a sport that isn’t in season comes and steals the spotlight.
But Brady has been a superstar for a long time, and it isn’t exactly surprising to see him take the spotlight back once again.
He is a legend, and as he returns from his brief retirement that didn’t last as long as baseball’s lockout, he is prepared to win himself another Super Bowl.
