Legendary quarterback Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates celebrated their Super Bowl LV win over last year’s champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, with a boat parade on the Hillsborough River on Wednesday.
During the celebration, Brady, who sticks to a famously strict diet that excludes sugar, dairy, alcohol, and oddly nightshade vegetables, took a day off from the TB12 method and indulged in some adult beverages.
ESPN posted a viral video of the visibly altered and smiling quarterback being physically escorted past a pack of photographers after the parade wrapped up at Port Tampa Bay. Brady himself commented on the post with a misspelled message: “Noting to see her…just litTle avoCado tequila.”

Swaying down the pier wasn’t even Drunk Brady’s most notable moment of the parade, earlier on the boat ride he proved his is impeccable at any inebriation level, when he tossed the coveted Lombardi Trophy from to a boat trailing behind.
What a power move. Basically every other Canton-bound quarterback is unhappy right now. Being passive-aggressive. Here’s Tom Brady just drunk and chucking Lombardis boat to boat. pic.twitter.com/zQHY9hQJXp

Brady aimed and fired as his daughter, Vivian, can be heard yelling “Dad, no!” in horror as the trophy sailed through the air to a pack of teammates. Luckily tight end Cameron Brate made sure the pass was completed.
“That was the best catch of my life,” Brate commented. “Unbelievable. That was THE best catch of my life. If I had dropped that? I think I would’ve had to retire. That was amazing. He pointed it at me. We talked about it earlier. It was a great throw. I mean, what do you expect from Tom Brady. A great throw.”
One delighted fan wrote, “I think once you win your 7th title you don’t really care anymore about trophies or rings.” Following up with a jab at the Green Bay Packers QB, “This is truly drunk Brady still completing passes. No way Aaron Rodgers could do this.”
