Boat parade? More like G.O.A.T parade.

We’ve all watched Tom Brady complete incredible passes and win some of the biggest games, the latest being Super Bowl LV.

With so many clutch moments over his 21-year NFL career, it’s hard to pinpoint which of his passes stand out above the rest.

That is until Wednesday.

During the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl boat parade, which took place on the Hillsborough River near downtown Tampa, Brady got in one more throw before turning the page to the offseason.

And it was easily his riskiest.

Looking to share the wealth that is the Lombardi Trophy, Brady moved to the back of the boat he was riding in what many assumed was a joke.

With two hands, the QB hurled the trophy from the moving vessel into the waiting hands of, you guessed it, a shirtless Rob Gronkowski.

Or so we thought. Turns out Gronk left his touchdown receptions on the field.

The catch was actually made by fellow tight end Cameron Brate.

Gronk did steal the show on Super Bowl Sunday, however.

The pair is obviously still very much in the zone after the tight end caught six passes for 67 yards and two of Brady’s three touchdowns in the 31-9 dismantling of the Chiefs.

With the performance, Brady and Gronkowski set the record for most postseason touchdowns by a QB-WR duo with 14, breaking the 12-score mark held by Joe Montana and Jerry Rice.

And with the latest catch, Brady and Gronkowski now sit at 84 total touchdowns and one dry Lombardi Trophy. Talk about chemistry.

Not everyone was as surehanded as Gronk and Brate on Wednesday, however. Buccaneers wide receiver Scottie Miller owes teammate Chris Godwin a new phone after dropping his into the abyss.
