You’ve seen Tom Brady blitzed, and now you’ve seen Tom Brady blitzed.
The Buccaneers quarterback has made a career carving up blitzing defenders, but his seemingly shlossed appearance during Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl boat parade made more headlines than the Bucs’ 31-10 Super Bowl 55 win.
Appearing on “The Late Late Show” with James Corden, Brady went over some of the finer details that he remembered (barely) from the Super Bowl parade, including the now-famed trophy toss.
“I don’t remember that quite as well,” Brady said with a laugh about the trophy toss.
Corden asked: What happens if the Lombardi trophy ends up in the water?
“First of all, I was not thinking at that moment,” Brady said. “There was not a thought. It was, ‘This seems like, really fun to do!’ Not to mention, when you get your hands on one of those trophies, there are a lot of sharp edges on the bottom, where the stand is.”
When shown the video of Brady being held up by fellow quarterback Ryan Griffin, Brady admits that both sea legs and tequila were at play, and that he couldn’t ask for a better friend than Griffin, who helped a wobbly Brady back on land.
While the boat parade might not be that memorable for Brady, the season in which he won his seventh championship ring certainly is. He’ll be back in Tampa Bay in 2021 for a chance at his eighth.
