If a victory parade is supposed to be conducted while taking all the social distancing measures, then you might as well do it over water. That is exactly what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did. The entire squad floated across the Hillsborough River in Tampa while all their supporters gathered along the riverbank to catch a glimpse.
Mayor Jane Castor instructed the crowd to wear masks. She also asked the crowd to follow proper social distancing measures while attending the parade. Kayaks and personal boats were allowed, provided that they kept a distance of 50 feet at all times from the official yachts.
Tom Brady THREW the Lombardi trophy to the Gronk!!
Much like the relationship they have on the field, Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady shared a glimpse of their brilliance when they played catch with the Lombardi trophy. Brady on one yacht threw the trophy to Gronkowski, who was on the other yacht over the water!
TOM BRADY THREW THE TROPHY

It was terrifying for the bystanders to watch. However, they both knew what they were doing as Gronk caught the trophy like it was no big deal. Ever since Tom Brady arrived at Tampa Bay, tight end Rob Gronkowski has been catching whatever is being thrown at him. Be it a pigskin or the Super Bowl trophy.
Other players also celebrated wildly
Leonard Fournette, Chris Godwin, and Scotty Miller were just some players who were also partying with Brady in his $2 million yachts.
Leonard Fournette was so into the celebrations that he thought that defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul still had all of his fingers. Pierre-Paul lost his fingers in a fireworks accident back in 2015.
It’s so hot out here the sun got me seeing things 😂😂😂😂 I thought JPP had all his fingers just now

Unlike the Lombardi trophy, Chris Godwin saw his phone plunge into the Hillsborough River when Scotty Miller dropped it accidentally.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV, which was staged in Kansas. Young quarterback Patrick Mahomes was playing for the Chiefs. However, the brilliance of veteran Tom Brady was enough to ensure that the Bucs went away with the win.
