Rob Gronkowski has entered the chat.
The Buccaneers joined the hilarious Twitter exchange Friday between tight end teammate Tom Brady and the Stanley Cup account, and trolled Brady’s boozy Super Bowl celebration in February.
The Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Montreal Canadiens in a 4-1 win over the Stanley Cup Finals at home on Wednesday, with the Stanley Cup Twitter account tweeting at Brady, “FYI I’m too heavy to throw” — of Brady’s viral win. Toss for Lombardy during Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl 2021 Boat Parade in February.
In a follow-up tweet, the Stanley Cup account tagged Gronkowski and wrote, “…and hold on,” though it was actually Gronkowski’s fellow tight end Cameron Brett who caught Brady’s Lombardi toss.
Brady was the first to respond to the Lord’s Stanley Cup joke, writing, “Idk…everything feels a bit lighter after some tequila”—the TB12’s accepted drink of choice at the boat-clad bash.
On Friday, Gronkowski chimes in on twitter: “Everything feels like feathers when you’re blacked out,” he wrote.
For context, the Stanley Cup weighs 34.5 pounds, unlike the Lombardi Trophy, which weighs seven pounds.
After Brady won his seventh Super Bowl ring in February, when the Bucks defeated the Chiefs 31–9, it appeared he had more than one drink during the team’s boat celebration.
His backup quarterback, Ryan Griffin, was famously seen landing a drunk Brady, as the 43-year-old stumbled past cameras and Bucs fans.
In response to the video, Brady appears to be drunk-tweeting: “Noting to see her… just a little avocado tequila.”
A few weeks after Tampa’s boat parade, Brady appeared on “The Late Late Show” with James Corden, where he had a good laugh over the viral video.
“It was definitely a moment of celebration, I’m glad I’m on the ground at the time, of course,” he said with a laugh, before sharing high praise for his friend Griffin.
“Glad I’m surrounded by my fellow quarterback Griff – the right place at the right time. Who could be a better friend than that? Making sure I was so comfortable sailing a boat like that.”
