Tom Brady having a blast at the parade is something we can all get behind.

When one reaches a certain level of fame and success, it makes them seem untouchable and almost out of this world. Beyonce is a perfect example from a celebrity sense, as is Lebron James from a sports perspective. Tom Brady is certainly apart of that category. On the football field, he is a god amongst men, and his victory and MVP award in Super Bowl LV further affirms that.

He has a famously perfect diet down to the last minute detail, known as the TB12 Method and Diet. People swear there’s more to his success, but what it really boils down to is hard work and keeping his body right. Brady enjoying the same success he’s had over the last two decades, at the age of 43 no less, makes it seem like he isn’t human.

That is until the Tampa Bay Buccaneers boat parade today.

Brady was having an absolute ball at the parade, in a performance rivaled only by Jason Kelce during the Philadelphia Eagles’ celebration. Videos surfaced of him and long time chum from their New England Patriots days Rob Gronkowski literally tossing the Lombardi Trophy from boat to boat. It’s honestly one of the most incredible videos you’ll ever see, for more reasons than one. While it’s easy to assume that the players would indulge in the “refreshments” provided at the celebration, but it’s also just as easy to assume if Brady partook, it would be in moderation given the TB12 Method and Diet, and the fact that he’s a 43-year-old man.


That is really all you need to see from Brady’s day at the celebration, both the video and his absolutely perfect response. Love him or hate him, it’s pretty much impossible not to look at that and not have it put a smile on your face.

Athletes are put on a pedestal, and the best ones are put in even higher regard, with Brady apart of the elite class. At the end of the day though, he’s just a 43-year-old man living the dream and reaping the benefits. It’s something each and every one of us would strive for and would trade places in a second.

You can put aside the incredible athleticism, supermodel wife, and the fact that he’s aging backward like Benjamin Button while getting more handsome with each passing year. However, Brady appearing to have a little too much to drink while having a good time is something we can all relate to, and makes Tom Brady extremely likable, after spending so much time as a supervillain to many.
