Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen

Tom Brady is the only NFL player who could get away with this.

Seriously, can you think of anyone else who has the guts to wear a "Wizard of Oz" Cowardly Lion costume for Halloween? Out in public for all to see, photograph and post on Instagram?

And you know no one is going to give the three-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback of the New England Patriots a hard time about it. Well, maybe Randy Moss, but do you think Brady cares what he thinks anymore? Or ever did?

But you can be sure that broadcasters are going to continue to say his name -- first and last every time, of course -- with the same amount of love and respect that no other player receives. Or deserves, for that matter.

Sure, it helps that the Dorothy giving him a big ol' smooch in the Instagram photo is his wife, Gisele Bundchen, the world-famous supermodel.

But Brady could be kissing Toto the dog -- or even every member of the '70s-'80s soft rock band Toto -- and no one would give it a second thought.

Because he's Tom Brady.
