Tom Brady on Lombardi Trophy toss and what Gisele said to him after Super Bowl win

Article content

Tom Brady has admitted that if he could go back in time and do it all over again, he’d pause for a sec before deciding to give the iconic Vince Lombardi Trophy a toss during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl boat parade last month.

“First of all, I was not thinking at that moment,” Brady told James Corden during an appearance on The Late Late Show this week. “It was not a thought. It was, ‘This seems really fun to do.’

“I found out later, had that been an incomplete pass, that would have went down like 80 feet (into the Hillsborough River),” the quarterback added.

Brady, who has seven Super Bowl ring in 10 appearances after the Bucs beat the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 last month, also revealed that his daughter, Vivian tried to dissuade her dad from throwing the trophy to tight end Cameron Brate, who was partying on a neighbouring boat.

“That’s my little eight-year-old daughter, ‘Daddy, no!'” Brady said. “Who could imagine that an eight-year-old girl would have the most sense of anybody in that whole area? I mean, she’s the voice of reason. Go figure.”

Corden also asked the five-time Super Bowl MVP if he was stumbling around at the parade because of sea legs or the booze after Brady reshared a Twitter post in which he appeared drunk with the caption, “Noting to see her … just little avocado tequila.”

“It was definitely a moment of celebration. I’m happy I’m on land at that point, absolutely,” Brady said.

Elsewhere in their conversation, Brady, who is “just getting reacquainted with the dishwasher,” recalled the moment Gisele Bundchen said to him after his seventh Super Bowl win: “What more do you have to prove?”

Brady told Corden he tried to “figure out how to change the subject really quick.”

“I think I moved on to something else pretty quickly.”

Brady was honest when he assessed the Bucs’ season, noting the team’s slow start. But he said the group was able to find success when they found their “rhythm” in December and going into the playoffs.

“We really had the pedal on the metal and everyone worked really hard. It was so much fun to see (the) team come together the way it did,” he said. “By the time we got to the Super Bowl, all of us still felt like we were still getting better … That was a great feeling to have going into that game.”

Last month, prior to the Super Bowl, Brady, who turns 44 this August, already said he was considering playing past the age of 45.

Brady, who is rehabbing after knee surgery, also trolled his former division rivals the New York Jets when Corden asked him if he could trade late night for the gridiron.

“I could play for the Jets?” Corden asked.

“You might be able to play for the Jets,” Brady replied roasting the bottom-dwelling 2-14 team. “You’re right about that.”
