BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Tom Brady's been dominating on the field for the past two decades, and James Holzhauer's been dominating on Jeopardy! for the past month and a half.

It looks like Brady, who recently joined Twitter, knows a fellow GOAT when he sees one. He tweeted about Holzhauer's run on Monday, saying that if the 24-year-old professional sports gambler lost, he'd ... eat a strawberry.

It may not sound like much of a bet, but it's a big deal for Brady, who famously told New York Magazine back in 2016 that he has never eaten a strawberry in his entire life. His strict diet aimed at anti-inflammation is the stuff of legend, and he believes it's part of what's kept him in the game for so long.

Thankfully for Brady, Holzhauer won his 23rd-straight Jeopardy! game Monday night, ensuring Brady wouldn't have to try the forbidden fruit.

Now, Holzhauer wants to raise the stakes.

Brady's diet also has him avoiding nightshades, a category of vegetable that includes tomatoes, potatoes, and eggplant.
