Party with Lombardi: The Buccaneers' Super Bowl LV boat parade is one for the books

The parade was full of music, cheers, yachts and a Lombardi Trophy toss you just have to see for yourself.

TAMPA, Fla — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers did not hold anything back while celebrating a historic Super Bowl LV win, as they set sail down the Hillsborough River with the Lombardi Trophy. 

After taking down the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 Sunday night, the Bucs celebrated adding to the amazing year for sports in the "Champa Bay" area the only way we know how in Florida -- a boat parade.

From everyday boats to mega yachts fans saw it all as the Buccaneers partied for hours on the water. Things got a bit wild with football passes being tossed, Chris Godwin saying his phone took a swim in the river and plenty of alcohol consumed. 

But one moment from the parade stands out among the rest: Tom Brady confidently tossing the $10,000 sterling silver trophy created by Tiffany & Co. from his boat to another in the middle of the parade.
