[WEBINAR] The New Normal: Dealing with the Reality of an Unsecure World


Definition - What does Bradying mean?

Bradying is a viral Internet meme in which photographic subjects imitate the dejected pose of Tom Brady, NFL quarterback for the New England Patriots, after he failed to deliver a winning touchdown in the last minute of Super Bowl XLVI. In Bradying, the subject sits slumped forward on the ground, hands clasped between the legs, in a pose that belies Brady's sullen and dejected stance on the field when the Patriots lost the game to the New York Giants. The photos are shared over the Internet and via social media.
