Tom Brady's Behavior At The Super Bowl Boat Parade Is Raising Eyebrows

Tom Brady reached an impressive milestone on Feb. 7, 2021, when he became the only person in NFL history to have seven Super Bowl victories under his belt, per Pro Football Talk. Six of his wins occurred during his iconic career with the New England Patriots. His seventh win came after his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It marks the Buc's second championship title, per CNN.

Following his win, Brady told reporters that his seventh time winning feels just as glorious as his first. "I'm not making any comparisons," he stated, according to CNN. "Being down here and experiencing it with this group of guys is — every year is amazing, and this team is world champions forever. You can't take it away from us. Thank you guys. Thank you all."

Of course, a Super Bowl win means a super celebration in the team's town. Although Disney World canceled its annual Super Bowl victory parade, as CNN noted, the Bucs got to cruise around Tampa via a boat parade and celebrate with fans lining the city's waterways. It's no secret that a Super Bowl parade can mean lots of partying for excited players and fans alike, and this was no exception for MVP Tom Brady. However, the star quarterback's celebrations have people turning their heads. Keep reading to learn why Tom Brady's behavior at the Super Bowl boat parade raised a few eyebrows.

Tom Brady seems to have taken his celebrations seriously

Of course, all eyes were on Tom Brady's multi-million dollar yacht as it cruised through Tampa's Hillsborough River, around Harbour Island, and through the Ybor Channel as part of the Super Bowl LV victory parade, according to TMZ. However, Brady raised a few eyebrows when all that celebrating seemed to get the best of him, as he appeared unable to walk off his boat without a little help. Perhaps he just hadn't found his sea legs?

The video shows the dad of three grinning wide as he's guided past reporters, with the football star at times shouting something indistinguishable. People quickly shared their thoughts on the spectacle, with many agreeing that he may have partied a bit too hard. "Tom Brady finally showed his age. He was the drunk uncle today. I'm crying," former NFL player Torrey Smith tweeted. "Tom Brady partied hard today!" another user commented. Another amused viewer sarcastically wrote, "I get a little sea legs when I get off of a boat too," along with a beer-clinking emoji.

Furthermore, Brady caused a stir when he heaved the Lombardi Trophy off his boat — over the water — and onto another vessel full of teammates, as reported by TMZ. Luckily, the trophy was caught, and divers were not required to locate it at the bottom of the river.

Tom Brady responded to fans' comments about his merriment

While Tom Brady needed some guidance off his boat following the Super Bowl LV victory parade, he took to Twitter following the viral scene to respond to fans' jokes about his behavior. "Noting to see her [sic]...just litTle avoCado tequila," he wrote, misspellings and all, alongside the video of him being escorted past reporters. The tweet is most likely a nod to his affinity for avocado ice cream.

Brady has often been open about his strict diet that keeps him in tip-top shape. In 2017, he released a cookbook, The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance, which included his infamous avocado ice cream recipe. In the book, he described the recipe as a "modern interpretation of ice cream" that is "just as delicious but much healthier," per

It's no question that Brady is always on top of his strict diet, but he's been known to let loose after he's won a Super Bowl. In a radio interview following his 2019 Super Bowl victory with the Patriots, the father of three explained that he drank more than he ever does during the celebratory festivities. "Everyone got to celebrate together," he said. "We certainly had more drinks than I've probably had in a whole year combined in one night. So it was a lot of fun."

While it's expected to celebrate after a huge victory, not everyone was pleased with Brady's behavior this time around.

Did Tom Brady party too hard?

Most of the comments revolving around Tom Brady's eyebrow-raising behavior at the Super Bowl victory parade were positive and all in good fun, but some took his public celebration as offensive and irresponsible. "You should be absolutely ashamed of yourself for acting this way. I'm a youth football coaching legend, and this is why I call them useless failures when they show up wearing your attire. How the hell am I supposed to explain this to them? I drink at field parties, not work," one person slammed. Another agreed, saying his behavior was hard to watch. "He's got the rings but never the class," the person said.

However, his fans were quick to defend him, saying he was just celebrating like any other person would. "Why are people so mad at Brady? He gets drunk because he won a world title, y'all get drunk just because it's a Friday night. Y'all are not the same!" one fan argued

Brady, of course, wasn't the only Tampa Bay Buccaneer who looked like he took his celebrations seriously. In a video posted to Twitter, Bucs tight end Rob Gronkowski said, "This is when I turn up!" Of course, we wish the Bucs a fun, but safe, celebration.
