-- Tom Brady scared a lot of Patriots fans on Thursday when he posted a video of himself bombing down the slopes on a ski trip.

A little downhill this morning... now we just need to find the jump -- #halfsend

“Every Patriots fan holding their breath,” one person commented. Many others added similar comments of concern for the quarterback’s safety.

Cordarrelle Patterson ribbed Brady, writing, “pops is that you in the back?”

Brady responded, “you already know n shit #poleposition.”

Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen also reacted to the video, commenting, “What can I say. Boys will always be boys.”

Thankfully, Brady is safe and did not suffer an injury this time like he has in the past.

-- Terry Francona also participated in a risky activity this week when he joined the Indians coaches and front office staff on a skydiving trip.

The group that included the former Red Sox manager jumped out of a plane as a team building activity in Arizona.

And Francona loved it.

“We’ve got about 10 or 12 people going to jump today,” Francona said. “I think they just got tired of hearing me talk about it.”

“I’m going again,” he continued. “But this time I’ve got to wear a helmet so I can enjoy the free fall. The first time I thought my head was going to explode. It felt like there was a freight train inside my head.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "It’s fun to watch all these guys sign some deals. Beyond that, nothing really. No more than any other guy. I don’t view it any differently than anybody else." -- Andrew Benintendi, to, on if Alex Bregman’s new deal piqued his interest
