The Trophy Toss – One Year After
You certainly remember when Tom Brady and his teammates celebrated their big win with the iconic boat parade through Tampa Bay last February. This week, exactly one year after, we look back on the days leading up this day and the time following when the unforgettable Trophy Toss went viral.
The big win
On February 8th, 2021, Tom Brady and Tampa Bay secured themselves the iconic Trophy when winning over Kansas in an intense match-up.
The win made Tom Brady holder of nothing less than seven rings and five big game MVP titles.
Boat Parade and Trophy Toss
The toughest pass Tom Brady completed this past February wasn’t one of his three touchdowns from Super Bowl LV. It came a few days later as the Buccaneers celebrated their championship with a boat parade around Tampa. That’s when Brady famously launched the trophy from his vessel over the open waters of one of the city’s channels and into the hands of Bucs tight end Cameron Brate, narrowly avoiding disaster.
During the parade, Tom Brady was off course wearing his pair of Cloos x Brady - Coal frames.
"First of all, I was not thinking at that moment. It was not a thought. It was, 'This seems really fun to do,'" Brady told James Corden during an appearance on The Late Late Show."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)."
When asked about being braced by quarterback Ryan Griffin coming off the boat and whether it was caused by sea legs or tequila because it seemed Tom Brady was shaky, Brady said it was "a little of both."
During the entire parade, Tom Brady was off course wearing his pair of Cloos x Brady - Coal frames, which apparently played a part in saving that trophy!
