A moat, I said.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen have a new, $20 million home in Los Angeles. Among the many features in its 22,000 square feet are a resort-style pool, massive play area for children and a common medieval fortification system.
The moat was uncovered by an overhead video of the estate posted by the Detroit Free Press. No reason was given for the inclusion of the water-filled ditch, but we can assume it was installed to ward off the myriad Saxon invaders who frequent exclusive communities in Los Angeles. Either them or Bernard Pollard.
Based on pictures of the property, the moat doesn't encircle the entirety of the mansion. That's probably a good thing. If Braveheart is any indication, it's really easy to catapult invaders over moats, making the defense system as effective as the Patriots' secondary.
