i have been fortunate enough to do it, but even more when you get a chance to do it on your home field. this is just the second time in nfl history that that has ever happened. so how does it feel to win it in los angeles? >> it's unbelievable. i mean, the support all year to be able to be in our home stadium, to win the super bowl, you feel some pressure for sure to defend the home turf, and to come out with a victory is ultra special. there are so many people that go into that. you know that, and it just makes you feel good to know that everybody in this organization gets to enjoy that moment. >> and you have had an incredible, incredible career, man. for 11 years of your career, you so how does it feel to beat them in the super bowl? is it a little bittersweet for you? >> it is. i mean, you think about it. i love that place. it's -- the city and everything about it is awesome, but any time in life you get told somebody doesn't believe in you as much as you want them to, and you take that opportunity to go and make something of yourself somewhere else, and for your team to come out victorious, man, it's just an awesome
opportunity to remind people, man, bet on yourself, believe in yourself, and never let anyone's opinions become your reality. i couldn't be more gratified with this moment and my teammates and my organization. >> i got to say, as a fan, you're watching the game. i'm, like, why can't somebody just go ahead and get it over with? it's bad on the heart to watch these games like this. it's stressful, but i have to say outside of the game, and andrew, you're one of the best guys -- one of the best players in the league, but you're also one of the best men not just in the league, but on the planet. you were named the 2021 walter payton nfl man of the year award, which honors your service off the field. how important is it for you to give back to the community as you have done over your entire career? >> i think it's everything. to me, that's what is the most important part of my job of being an nfl football player is to make sure communities i've either played in or lived in or watched growing up, you know, maybe go through struggles or anything else, that i commit
back to them that i love them, i support them, and i want every kid, every opportunity that people have to realize, man, you can pursue your dreams. you can have an equal opportunity. as anybody else. it doesn't matter where you live, what your zip code is. i believe in you. and i want to make sure you know that. i'll prove it through my actions, finances, voice, and investment in your time. it's utmost importance as an nfl player to pour yourself back into the community that makes our game exist. >> i saw your speech at the nfl honors up, and you said it best. there are times i want to be at home, but i realize how important it is to be out there helping others and it's paid off because there are players in the league who are only there because you inspired them to do it, man, and that says a lot about you and your character, and one more thing. tom brady, retired, which makes you now the oldest player in the league at 40 years old. a lot of people going, that's not old, but in football, 40 is like dog years. it's, like, 85. are you coming back for year 17
or is this the perfect hollywood ending to an incredible career? >> you know what, i don't know yet. we're going to sit down in the next couple of weeks, me and sean mcvay, and we'll figure all that out, but you know what, i think it would be pretty special to end on this note, but we'll see what happens. i mean, it could be one of those things in the next couple of weeks. maybe my heart will change, but i feel like there's an opportunity there to end on a really special note, and, you know, if there's a future here to continue to be a ram, i'm all for that too, but in the next couple of weeks, i'll sit down with the family and sit down with sean and figure all that out. >> good luck in whatever your decision is. congratulations on being a super bowl champ, my friend, and as your friend, i'm going to give you a little advice. get some sleep. >> you're right, mike. i'm going to need it. it's going to be a long week. i look forward to it. >> all right, andrew. thank you so much, man. congratulations again. super bowl champ andrew whitworth, appreciate you, my brother. >> thank you so much, brother. >> and regardless, he's
definitely going to need some sleep, and regardless of andrew's decision if he's going to come back or not, it's incredible to see this guy who's been in the league so long get an opportunity to win a championship along with so many other guys, matthew stafford as well, but what a story. a lot of pressure on these guys to win it at their home stadium here in l.a., and yesterday was momentous moment, a momentous moment here for the city of l.a., for this team, and of course, a lot of fun for us all to watch, george. >> it sure looked like it. michael, thanks very much. let's go to the showdown with russia over ukraine. the u.s. warning an attack could come at any time as president biden engages in a last-ditch diplomacy to talk to putin and the ukrainian president. ian pannell has the latest. >> reporter: fears that russia could invade in days. the white house continuing to ring the alarm. >> we have seen over the course of the past ten days dramatic acceleration in the buildup of russian forces, and the disposition of those forces in such a way that they could launch a military action
essentially at any time. >> reporter: the u.s. repeating that its intelligence shows russia could be planning a fake attack on forces loyal to the kremlin that would then be used as a reason to invade. >> russia always creates a false pretext for invasion, and the u.s. is worried they'll do the same here in ukraine. >> reporter: throughout this crisis, there's only one person who really knows if there will be an invasion, russian president vladimir putin. >> it'll start with massive cyberattacks, these cyberattacks will shut down communication, shut down critical infrastructure like water and power to try and create chaos. >> reporter: later today, more u.s. forces expected to deploy from fort bragg into eastern europe to support nato allies, but they won't be going to ukraine. russia's latest movement, a submarine sailing to the black sea where more than 30 russian ships have been taking part in naval drills and just across
ukraine's borders, more than 130,000 russian troops amassing on three sides of ukraine. russia vehemently denying any intention of invading accusing the u.s. and others of being hysterical with their warnings. over the weekend, president biden speaking with president putin. without any sign of progress. saying time may be running of -- out for diplomacy. asking all american citizens to leave ukraine immediately as it draws down embassy staff. other nations following suit. more than two dozen countries are telling their people to get out now. well, one important thing to watch this week is this draft law before the russian parliament recognizing ukraine as independent. it goes to a vote. that could escalate the conflict. if it's push out for consultations, perhaps the kremlin wants to de-escalate. a critical move today. >> thank you very much. let's get more from cecilia vega at the white house.
since about friday afternoon, the white house seemed to switch into a much higher state of alert. >> reporter: they are sounding the alarm, george, good morning to you, and officials don't know whether or not putin has decided to invade, but in terms of that critical alarm, they say their intelligence shows russia has strategically built up and moved its forces on the ukrainian border to appoint that an invasion could now be eminent. they can't product the exact day, but we are now in the window of a possible invasion and it could happen at any time. president biden, you mentioned those urgent phone calls, he spoke with ukraine's leader and reiterated that the u.s. will respond swiftly and decisively. on saturday, he had that more than an hour-long phone call with putin. there was no breakthrough. russia in that phone call accusing the united states of inflaming hysteria, but perhaps, t.j., a slight glimmer of hope. both sides have agreed, russia and the u.s. to keep their teams talking, but again, the u.s. reiterating right now that we could be looking at an imminent attack in a matter of days, t.j. >> all right, cecilia, thank you
so much. we want to turn now to the breaking news of that major bridge connecting the u.s. and canada finally reopened overnight after being shut down for days by protests. our elwyn lopez has the very latest for us. good morning to you, elwyn. >> reporter: hey, t.j., good morning. that crucial ambassador bridge now reopening after a week-long blockade. police cleared the busiest border crossing in north america after hundreds of protests blocked the area. all of this while parts remain gridlocked with convoy protests. the ambassador bridge is back open, a quarter of all trade between the two countries can return. a positive sign for automakers and its workers. i spoke to the windsor mayor who told me they're working on preventing something like this from happening again. robin? >> elwyn, thanks so much. we're going to move on now to the olympics and that breaking news overnight. the 15-year-old russian figure skating phenom has been cleared to compete after she tested positive for a banned substance before the games. maggie rulli has the latest.

by russian cheating, russian doping, and they have now done it again, and it's in women's figure skating. >> reporter: the usa caught up in the controversy. the ioc saying it will not announce a decision about what will happen to the medal results in which team usa got silver until after the games are over. in women's speed skating, history at the top of the podium. erin jackson becoming the first black woman to win. jackson nearly missing the competition after a shocking slip in the qualifying trials. but in a true test of friendship, teammate brittany bowe who was there cheering from the sidelines, gave up her spot to ensure jackson could punch her ticket to beijing. and in women's monobob, team usa's kaillie humphries, and teammate elana meyers taylor punching gold and silver. punching both hands in the air. i talked to elana after that race. look at this adorable video she posted of her 2-year-old son

street, and their adopted two children, and what i love about this is that as artists we get to use our art. to transform hearts and minds. and it's so exciting to be a part of the proud family reboot. because, you know, it tackles a lot of issues and topics that we, you know, these uncomfortable conversations that we're having, especially with the black community as it relates to the lgbtq conversation. i feel honored and humbled to be at the intersection, to be able to have those conversations with my community. >> you're educating people. you're entertaining people. always great to have you here on "gma." let's show you meeting mr. proud. >> i'm randal jenkins. >> lebowitz-jenkins. what kind of brother are you? >> the best kind. a brother in charge!

film for orion pictures. it's called "anything is possible." it's scheduled to come out this summer. it's a romantic comedy, coming of age story. sort of in the style of old john hughes movies, but it reflects what the world looks like today. we follow a black high school senior, transgirl, and she gets a boyfriend, and she gets into college, and it's about trans joy, not trans trauma. it's the first of its kind, and we're really, really excited to put this energy out in the world and show the world what else trans looks like. >> you have got it going on. there is nothing that you cannot do and do well. billy, thank you. have a wonderful day. >> thank you. >> always special having you on "gma." >> thank you for having me back. i love you all. have a good day. >> thanks, billy.
