Super Bowl LV MVP and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is feeling pretty familiar with the Vince Lombardi Trophy, enough to just toss it about from his new $2 million yacht to another boat during the Bucs victory boat parade on Wednesday.
Video of the toss, which did not splash down into Tampa Bay, was shown on local ABC affiliate WFTS. NFL GameDay tweeted “The most impressive pitch and catch of @TomBrady’s career.”
Brady led the Bucs to a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, the first time a team has won the Super Bowl from its home stadium.
The victory was the 43-year-old’s seventh Super Bowl win having won six previous with the New England Patriots. This was his first year playing for the Buccaneers. It was his 10th Super Bowl appearance overall.
He went 21 of 29 passing for 201 yards and three touchdowns, including two to fellow former Patriot-turned-Buc Rob Gronkowski.
His Super Bowl career stats are 277 of 421 passing for 3,039 yards, 21 touchdowns and six interceptions. It was the fifth time Brady was named Super Bowl MVP.
Brady needed a little help walking from the boat after the parade, although with a massive grin on his face.
