Tom Brady's new L.A. mansion is surrounded by a moat ... of course

I wish I was Tom Brady.

Not because he has movie-star looks, a supermodel wife and three Super Bowl rings.

He has a moat.

That's right, a moat. How cool is that?

Oh, and it just happens to surround the new $20-million, 22,000-square-foot mansion Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen have built in Brentwood, which we peasants can actually view in the video below from the Detroit Free Press.

I'm not sure if the moat has alligators or piranhas swimming in it. Probably. The lavish property also includes a gigantic pool, so there's no need to splash around in the moat (as tempting as that might be).

Actually, I don't really know exactly what purpose the moat serves. It's probably not for protection. With reported neighbors such as Heidi Klum and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Bradys aren't exactly living in the roughest part of L.A.

But that beautiful bridge that arches from the humble abode to the rest of civilization has to cross over something, doesn't it? Otherwise the whole thing would be just plain silly.

Might as well cross over something super cool like a moat. After all, this is Tom Brady's house we're talking about.
