Super Bowl champion Tom Brady appeared on “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Wednesday, in his first interview since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl boat parade. And of course while he was there he talked about the infamous Lombardi Trophy toss.

While traveling on a boat, Brady threw the trophy to another boat. Fortunately, tight end Cameron Brate was able to catch the coveted award before something disastrous occurred.

“I found out later, had that been an incomplete pass, that would have went down like 80 feet,” Brady said. “So, I'm so happy to Cam."

Brady also revealed that the person yelling ‘no’ during the memorable moment was his 8-year-old daughter Vivian.

"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. I gotta say it was really cute."
