Tom Brady had the opportunity to celebrate a familiar success in a very unfamiliar way.
For the seventh time in his two-decade long career, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was able to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Unlike his time with the New England Patriots, Brady has been much more relaxed and joyful. The future Hall of Famer is living in Florida, has an extremely talented team around him and doesn’t have the military environment to cope with.
Because of these factors, he decided to let to let loose and have a few drinks during the Buccaneers’ parade — the rest was history. Brady infamously tossed the Lombardi Trophy from one boat to another with hopes that his teammates would successfully catch it.
Brady, while joining The Late Show with James Corden, offered some perspective on that moment. He said his eight-year old daughter was the only one with some sense at the moment.
“First of all, I was not thinking at that moment. It was not a thought. It was, ‘This seems really fun to do,'” a laughing Brady said. “Not to mention, when you get your hands on one of those trophies, there’s a lot of really sharp edges on the bottom. … I found out later, had that been an incomplete pass, that would have went down like 80 feet. I’m so happy that [tight end] Cam [Brate caught it].”
His daughter, Vivian, was on a boat next to him yelling, “daddy, no!”
“That’s my little 8-year-old daughter,” Brady said. “Who could imagine that an 8-year-old girl would have the most sense of anybody in that whole area? I mean, she’s the voice of reason. Go figure.”
It was a hilarious, but well-earned moment for the greatest quarterback to ever do it.
