Florida woman wants Tom Brady to apologize for tossing Vince Lombardi trophy in victory parade


The Buccaneers had a great time at Wednesday’s Super Bowl LV victory boat parade in Tampa Bay.

One of the most memorable moments was Tom Brady tossing the Vince Lombardi trophy from his boat to another boat, which was caught by tight end Cameron Brate.

The video of the toss has since gone viral with many finding it humorous and the quarterback showing a side of himself not many have seen, but one Florida woman was bothered by it.

Lorraine Grohs, who is the daughter of Greg Grohs, the master silversmith at Tiffany and Company from 1967 to 1994, who crafted the very first Vince Lombardi trophy, spoke to Southwest Florida Fox4 about it and she's not happy.

"It just upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football," she said.

In fact, she thinks Brady should apologize.

"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,” Grohs said.

The woman added she hasn’t been able to sleep this week thinking about all the pride her father put into his work and then seeing the trophy get tossed from a boat to another boat in the Tampa river.

"I have a big history of this trophy being made by my father and it's such an honor and I know all the craftsmen that made it when my dad was there also at Tiffany's and it takes a lot of hard work," Grohs said.
