Defending Tom Brady’s Tequila-Shooting

February 22nd, 2021

Defends Tom Brady’s right to party.

In the eyes of one irked soul, a man accomplishes the highest feat in his chosen profession and he’s not allowed to have a shot or two to celebrate.

In an email to hot-dog-eating-contest-protestingmock-draft-scowlingL.L. Bean-wearingSecond Amendment abolitionistMike-Florio-arguingparrot-insensitivechewing-with-his-mouth-opensoup-gulpingCalifornia-train-romancinganti-football proliferationouthouse-admiringairline-nappingsteerage-flyingYogi Berra-worshipingurinal-picture-takingvideo-game-playingTaylor-Swift-listeningpickpocket-thwartingBucs-uniform-frowningAllie-LaForce-smittenBig-Ten-Network-hatingpedestrian-bumpingolive oil-lappingpopcorn-munchingcoffee-slurpingfried-chicken-eatingoatmeal-lovingcircle-jerking, craft-beer-chugging, cricket-watchingscone-loathingcollege football-naïvebaseball-box-score-readingNPR-honkfilthy-hotel-stayingfight-instigatingbarista-trainingBudweiser-tolerantbaseball-scorecard-keeping, pasta-feasting, vomit-dodging scrooge, Kay-Adams-following, Coors-Light-souring social activist and NFL insider Peter King of NBC Sports, a reader scolded King.

Why was King scolded? For not raking over the coals park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, trophy-throwing Bucs Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady for pounding tequila and tossing the Vince Lombardi Trophy to Cam Brate during the Bucs’ recent boat parade.

Further, the reader seemed to believe King conspired with other NFL reporters to cover up a knee injury to Brady for which he is scheduled to have surgery, yet he never appeared on any injury report in the playoffs.

I took it easy on Brady. From Richard Worley: “Your failure to address Tom Brady’s drunken behavior and his buffoon throwing of the Lombardi Trophy across an open water area is disappointing. Ignoring the non-reported knee issue of Brady was also a disappointment.”

I wasn’t critical of any of them because they do not bother me. Tom Brady got drunk at a party celebrating the Super Bowl victory. Good for him! When people celebrate seminal events in their lives, sometimes they drink to excess. I don’t think there’s a single story in Tom Brady’s 21 seasons as an NFL player that you could find him drinking and doing something stupid or wholly irresponsible.

Regarding the trophy: He threw it to a teammate on another boat, and the teammate caught it. Big deal.

Regarding the knee issue: If the knee did not cause Brady to miss any practice he was scheduled to participate, or endanger his status for any game this season, then it doesn’t bother me that he was never on the injury report. I would guess—and that’s all it is, a guess—that the over-under for players around the league who had clean-up surgeries, or are scheduled for them, since their last game of the season would be about 50. Do you think all of them were on injury reports?

So Brady had some tequila. What, is he 20-years old or under? Has this guy never been on a boat on a warm day?

Joe cannot believe someone would have the nerve to sit down and peck on a keyboard an email roasting an NFL columnist for not tearing apart Brady for celebrating a hard-earned Super Bowl win. Talk about a red@ss.

Joe has a hunch this guy is a neo-prohibitionist who believes men in their 20s… 30s… 40s (?) should stay at home and watch NOVA while their wives churn butter out back.

What a joyless SOB to blast a writer for not killing young men for celebrating a Super Bowl. It wasn’t like the dudes were on boats full of blunts and bongs. Geez.

  2. Mort Says:

    Shoulda been some blunts, but wrong environment to break out the bong.

  3. 6throundpick Says:

    Criticism is a form of hatred.

    Reminder: Tampa Bay just convincingly won a Super Bowl. Great parade! Big cheers!

  4. #1bucsfan Says:

    Also joe what’s wrong with bong and blunts ? Lol

  5. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Our SB celebration was hands down the best of all-time.
    Totally original and looks like everyone had a blast.

    Only thing missing was a Mons Venus party barge.

    This is Tampa….so STFU and go away haters!

    Sad too that the original Richard Worley was a famous pirate.

    Pirates like Brady are optimistic in their outlook and resist cynicism & negativity.
    Pirates often have magnetic personalities — they make you feel that you are great and may even inspire you to even greater levels of greatness.
    Pirates are capable of making bold & brave decisions and calculated risks.
    Pirates are not afraid of making mistakes — as mistakes are just learning opportunities.
    Pirates swim in the Ocean of Opportunities — pirates tend to see opportunities everywhere — even (and especially) in times of crisis.
    Pirates do not believe in anything simply because it’s what they were told or taught — instead, after observation & analysis, when they find that it agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, they then accept it and live up to it.

    This Richard Worley needs to embrace more of his ancestor’s pirate spirit.

    The tequila was cold and the blunts were rolled! party on Tom!

  8. Buczilla Says:

    Richard Worley needs to get laid. Dude, I like Nova!

  9. Mitch Says:

    Any sort of criticism regarding Brady’s career I feel like is either scripted for TV or genuine jealousy of his success.

    “Joe has a hunch this guy is a neo-prohibitionist who believes men in their 20s… 30s… 40s (?) should stay at home and watch NOVA while their wives churn butter out back.”

    This, this right here is gold.

  11. Youngbucs Says:

    Mitch I agree with you just look at the people claiming he is washed. Just look at what he’s done since turning 40 years old. The numbers are ridiculous look since turning 40 17622yds 125tds to only 39ints.

  12. Rob in Land O Lakes Says:

    Boat parades. That’s how we roll in Tampa Bay, baby!

  13. Nick2 Says:

    To me seeing Brady more human than the robotic way the Patriots force their players to become was refreshing. Yes Tom is human wow we never would have known before with Bill Belechek enforcing his “patriot way” rules back in New England that Tom even drank!! Good for you Tom celebrate for as long as you want or until the next team meeting!!

  14. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Tom Brady is a health freak, and demonstrated what happens when you drink, when you seldom if ever drink.
    Expensive Tequila is nearly tasteless when mixed into a drink, and Tom simply drank one too many drinks.

  15. Cannon Says:

    I suspect that the Tequila was the reason why Brady didn’t address the media at the end of the parade. Normally, he would give a rousing speech, right?

    Not this time 🙂

  16. Mike in LOL Says:

    Bongs and blunts are a hell of a lot better than alcohol!

  17. '79 Defense Says:

    To this day, I’m still having a hard time believing Tom Brady is even on our team, much less that we’re actually SB champions!– AND that we had one hell of a boat parade!
    (Thanks TB Lightning for coming up with that idea.)

  18. SickofLosing Says:

    While their wives churn butter lol!

  19. atlbuc28 Says:

    Here’s the bad thing Joe, The Brady hater articles that insert their own spin trying to create a false narrative. FTW article from usa today stating “When Brady got off his boat, he looked wobbly, with teammate Ryan Griffin holding Brady upright as he got to his car.”……. Pretty sure he wasn’t heading to his car drunk..smh

  20. Formally Tampa 2 Says:

    Woke Worley needs to stay out of Tom’s business. His Mother must have kept him at home till he was 40. Probably never been laid either.

  21. DoooshLaRue Says:


    Who said he ever left home or got laid?

  22. FanO’Bucs Says:

    We need to push back against these f’ing Nancies out there.

    This is professional sports! Grown men.

    Go play paddy cake somewhere else you soft serve vanilla dweeb

  23. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    He should go watch some badminton and catch a rise off of that!

  24. PassingThru Says:

    Are people saying Tom Brady went too Favre?

  25. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Tom is a freaking adult. Alcohol is legal for him. He didn’t drive. He who is without sin cast the first stone.

  26. maxdrumsalot Says:

    richard worley needs to change their name to KAREN

  27. IrishMist Says:

    I suspect Gronk spiked the punch.

  28. crayhopper Says:

    I agree guys should be allowed to celebrate. The thing that makes me nervous is Brady on the back of his boat with his young daughter (both without life jackets if I recall correctly). What if Brady or his daughter fall in the water and get run over by the boat behind them? What if they end up getting sliced up by the prop of the trailing boat. That would turn a celebration into a tragedy.

    crayhopper… put the bong down … your tripping out…lol
