And it’s safe to say that the celebration involved some alcohol as well. In a now-viral video, a clearly disoriented Tom Brady was seen throwing the Lombardi Trophy from one yacht to another.

The quarterback later admitted that he was indeed under the influence of alcohol when the incident took place. But Brady and everyone else took it in good spirits. In fact, Brady has referenced the throw multiple times recently as a passing joke.

Following his Lombardi Trophy antics, the account suggested that the Stanley Cup was just too big for Tom Brady to throw. And frankly, they aren’t wrong.
