For the first time, Tom Brady explained what he was thinking when throwing the Lombardi Trophy from boat to boat in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Super Bowl celebration.
In short ... he wasn't thinking.
Appearing on "The Late, Late Show with James Corden", Brady revisited the moment he heaved the trophy over a good stretch of water into the hands of tight end Cameron Brate.
"First of all, I was not thinking at that moment," Brady sad. "It was, ‘This seems really fun to do.’ … I found out later had that been an incomplete pass that would have down like 80 feet."
Brady also revealed that the voice yelling, "Daddy, no!" just as the toss took place belonged to that of his 8-year-old daughter, Vivian.
"Who could have imagined that an 8-year-old girl would have the most sense of anybody," Brady said. "She was the voice of reason."
In the interview, Brady also touched on the moment immediately after Buccaneers' Super Bowl win, when he finally found his wife, Gisele.
"All of a sudden I saw my wife, I gave her a big hug and she said, ‘What more do you have to prove?’ I was trying to figure out a way to change the subject really quick," he said. "I think I moved on really quickly."
The conversation concluded with Corden asking Brady if he believed there was a chance the late-night host could be drafted in the NFL. After telling him he has "zero chance" of that happening, he did finish things off by saying there was one team that Corden might be a fit with.
"You might be able to play for the Jets," Brady quipped.
