Tom Brady is, believe it or not, a human being.
Sure, his supernatural abilities with a football often have folks wondering just how mortal old TB12 really is, but there has been some evidence this week that Brady can operate on a regular person’s level.
First, there was the clip of Brady leaving a celebration of his latest Super Bowl win, in which the quarterback appeared to be incredibly drunk.

While this public intoxication might not have been the most prim and proper version of Tom Brady we’ve ever seen, the real controversy came earlier in the celebration, as Brady tossed the Lombardi Trophy from his latest Super Bowl win from boat to boat.

It’s this moment that has Brady catching all sorts of criticism.
Tom Brady’s Lombardi Trophy boat throw that went viral Wednesday didn’t go over well with one Fort Myers, Fla., woman, who said the toss was an insult to her family’s legacy.
“It just upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football,” Lorraine Grohs told Fox4.
And there was more…
“I personally would like an apology, not just to me and my family and the other silversmiths but to the fans, all the football fans the other team players,” she said.
Groh told the network that Brady’s trophy toss made her so upset that she had sleepless nights over the fact he treated the passion her father put into the trophy so lightly.
“I’ve seen this trophy being made at the factory at Tiffany’s and it’s a beautiful trophy,” Grohs said. “My father had to chisel the seams. He had to chisel the seams by hand. There is a newspaper article that shows him working on that trophy. The ball is hand-formed and the base is as well.”
Grohs has stated that she’s not much of a football fan at all, but would watch the end Super Bowl every year to see the trophy’s presentation.
