Tom Brady Throws Vince Lombardi Trophy Over Water During Super Bowl Celebrations
| Last updated
Tom Brady is known for his laser-like accuracy with the pig skin.
But even with a heavy silver trophy in hand, he still finds his receivers with ease.
The veteran quarterback was captured on film throwing the Vince Lombardi trophy from one boat to another during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Super Bowl celebrations.
43-year-old Brady guided the Bucs to their first championship since 2003 in his very first season with the team.
And at the same time, the famous 31-9 victory saw the legendary quarterback pick up his record seventh Super Bowl ring.
So you can imagine the team's celebrations were going to be pretty wild.
Tom Brady really THREW the Lombardi Trophy to Gronk on another boat :scream:

To begin their week-long party, the Bucs team hired out a bunch of boats to hang out in Tampa Bay.
Brady made his own subtle flex by entering the celebrations on his own $2million yacht - I mean, why not?
But perhaps the best moment from the celebrations came a lot later in the day (probably when a few extra beverages had been consumed).
The most impressive pitch and catch of @TomBrady's career :trophy:

Video emerged on social media of Brady tossing the Vince Lombardi trophy to one of his teammates who was on a completely different boat.
The iconic trophy hovered above the Tampa Bay water for a split second before eventually finding the safe hands of Bucs tight end Cameron Brate.
Oh, and the boats were moving too.
But this is Brady we're talking about here, of course he was going to find his intended target.
"That was the best catch of my life," Brate told the Tampa Bay Times.
"Unbelievable. That was the best catch of my life. If I had dropped that, I think I would've had to retire."
But TB12 wasn't done there.
As he arrived safely on dry land, fans and the media gathered on the promenade to welcome him.
But it appeared he'd had a little too much to drink and needed some assistance from one of the Bucs' staff.

Sunglasses still on and grinning from ear to ear, it looked like the rather wobbly 'GOAT' was having a whale of a time.
And when footage of his exit made its way onto social media, Brady was quick to reassure people that he was in safe hands.
He tweeted: "Noting to see her... just litTle avoCado tequila."
There's good reason why this bloke is so adored by sports fans all over the globe, and it's moments like this that just add to his legendary status.
An MVP both on and off the field.
