Tampa celebrated the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl 55 victory in style Wednesday, hailing the team as it shared its victory in a boat parade through downtown.
Naturally, Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady was the center of attention as he celebrated with his teammates, his kids and, apparently, some libations. That was evident when video showed the 21-year NFL veteran wobbling off the team’s party boat:
That certainly explains why Brady inadvisably tossed the Lombardi Trophy from one boat to another (no worries; Cameron Brate caught it).
It’s not too often you see Brady let loose, but you can hardly blame him: With the Bucs’ 31-9 win over the Chiefs on Sunday, Brady eclipsed every single NFL franchise in number of Super Bowl wins. He also won his fifth MVP award, forever cementing his status as the GOAT.
Regardless, people on Twitter enjoyed seeing this rarely displayed side of Brady. Here’s a sampling of some of the best reactions to his inebriation, including Brady himself:
How’s avocado ice cream for a hangover?
