For most of us, to take chances with one of sport’s most celebrated trophies would be too much of a risk, but not when you are the NFL’s “GOAT!”
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady celebrated his seventh Super Bowl win by tossing the Lombardi trophy from his boat to another nearby boat where teammate Cameron Brate caught it during a boat parade.
“That was the best catch of my life,” Brate said. “Unbelievable. That was the best catch of my life. If I had dropped that? I think I would’ve had to retire.”
Thousands of fans celebrated on the banks of the Hillsborough River near downtown Tampa. Notable members of the team, including Brady, tight end Rob Gronkowski, and coach Bruce Arians were on hand.
The boat parade was inspired by Brady, who, at 43 years and 188 days old, became the oldest player in the sport’s biggest game, and has seen his record in Super Bowl performances jump to 7 wins in 10 appearances.
Brady arrived at the parade on his multi-million dollar 40-foot boat called the “Viva a Vida.” In the videos, Brady was escorted out to dry land with third-string quarterback Ryan Griffin.
