A Florida woman wants Tom Brady to apologize for tossing the Vince Lombard trophy at the Super Bowl boat parade.
"I have a big history of this trophy being made by my father and it's such an honor and I know all the craftsmen that made it when my dad was there also at Tiffany's and it takes a lot of work, a lot of hard work... a lot of hours go into it. It really upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football," said Lorraine Grohs.
Grohs' father, Greg, was the master silversmith at Tiffany and Company that crafted the world-famous trophy back in 1967 until his retirement in 1994.
"I didn't sleep for the past 2 nights because I was that upset because I know the passion that goes into this trophy and know how my dad and all his fellow silversmiths are so proud to make this. I've seen this trophy being made at the factory at Tiffany's. My father had to chisel the seams, he had to chisel the seams by hand, there is a newspaper article that shows him working on that trophy chiseling it and the ball is hand-formed as base is as well," she said.
Grohs isn't a football fan and doesn't pay much attention to the big game. However, she watches till the end for one reason.
"I only watch the game to watch the trophy come out. I like to see all the owners and the football players just hold it up with such pride and hold it up and show everybody and I get goosebumps like right now I'm getting goosebumps from it I'm very proud."
There has been no word from Brady, The Buccaneers, or the NFL on this matter.
