Super Bowl winning quarterback and UGG model Tom Brady skipped meeting with President Obama at the White House on Thursday. Brady had a prior family commitment that kept him from the ceremony, Boston.com reports.

The Super Bowl champion Patriots visited the White House and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Thursday, but they did so without the player who was arguably the most important in getting them there.

Quarterback Tom Brady did not join his teammates to meet with President Obama due to what the Patriots said was a prior family commitment.

Brady had visited the White House after all of his previous Super Bowl wins. George Bush was president for all of those.

Thursday would have marked Brady’s fourth trip to the White House to be honored as a Super Bowl champion. The Patriots’ last trip came in 2005, when they were hosted by President George W. Bush for the third time in four years.
