Brady rolled up to Bucs' Super Bowl parade in a new $2M boat

Tom Brady is used to attending Super Bowl parades on boats, but he went with a slight upgrade this year.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers celebrated their Super Bowl LV victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday with a "socially distant boat parade" near the Riverwalk area of downtown Tampa.

The celebration is good timing for Brady, who reportedly dropped around $2 million on a brand-new boat last December. So, you'd best believe the 43-year-old quarterback pulled up to the boat parade in his new vessel.

That's Brady's blue boat -- dubbed "Viva a Vida" in honor of his wife Gisele's environmental conservation initiative -- getting a police escort prior to the parade down Hillsborough River.

Here are couple more shots of Brady on his boat, which is a far cry from the Duck Boats that inched down Boston's Boylston Street during his six Super Bowl parades with the New England Patriots:

And while Brady loved those parades in New England, he clearly didn't mind a change of scenery for his seventh championship celebration.

"There were Duck Boats before, but it was freezing cold. Nothing like this," Brady told reporters in the video clip above. "This is perfect."

Brady's Bucs teammates showed him love, too, rocking shirts featuring the QB's infamous NFL Combine photo that center Ryan Jensen first showed off Sunday.

 

At least Bill Belichick still has VIII Rings.
