There are things worth getting upset over, and there are things not worth getting upset over. Tom Brady tossing the Lombardi Trophy from one boat to another during the Super Bowl LV celebratory parade?
Yeah, we’ll put that one in the “not worth getting upset over” category.
If you’re wondering if anyone would dispute that designation, the answer is yes. Her name is Lorraine Grohs, and she is not happy with Brady right now.
According to Kyle Burger with ABC Action News down in Tampa, she is the daughter of Greg Grohs, the master silversmith who crafted the very first Lombardi Trophy. Burger shared the story via his Twitter account on Saturday morning.

Grohs said the trophy was “disgraced” and “disrespected” while going on about how she hasn’t slept in two days over the matter. Yes, you read that correctly. She has had trouble sleeping because a seven-time Super Bowl champion tossed a trophy from one boat to another.
Had she blamed COVID as the culprit behind her sleepless nights, we could all understand — at least for the most part. Hell, she could’ve said she shorted GameStop and we could all rally behind her worry. But Brady throwing a trophy?
Come on, now. This can’t be serious. AND … she wants an apology.
If this had been the trophy her father had crafted, then maybe. Still not saying I would feel she was justified (I wouldn’t), but at least I could somewhat understand. There is nothing about this situation that makes sense.
Hope she’s a fan of the name Karen.
