The story of the hat Tom Brady wore to and from Thursday night’s preseason contest with the Panthers at Gillette Stadium – sticking with the facts, no “Curious George” Man With The Yellow Hat jokes here – is apparently a simple one.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Brady, maybe inspired a bit by the fashion sense of the Carolina quarterback across the field, Cam Newton, wore a notable hat of his own. Afterwards he confirmed it was not the same one that he’s worn on past trips to the Kentucky Derby.

“We have similar style,” Brady said of Newton in his postgame press conference. “He wears it a little better.”

Friday morning, clearly aware of the attention that his hat selection ignited, Brady teased on Twitter that he might have something even more notable when the bright lights of real football gets going come September’s Sunday night opener against the Steelers in Foxborough.

While Brady clearly took pride in his hat on a night when he made his preseason debut, some fans weren’t quite as upbeat on the look.

In fact some didn’t seem to like it at all…
