By Matt Dolloff,

Tom Brady is far from relatable at this point in his life. But millions of fans who watched him after the Bucs’ Super Bowl celebration finally had themselves a moment.

If you drink alcohol socially, there’s a chance you’ve been there. You went a little too fast and all of a sudden it catches up to you. Can barely speak. Can’t walk straight. But on the bright side you’re happy, as your friend drags you to the next destination. Times like these usually come at a joyous occasion, like a wedding or a Super Bowl boat parade.

Fortunately it looks like Brady is a happy drunk. And the Bucs’ Ryan Griffin was the heroic friend.

Brady’s own Twitter admitted to the drunkenness.

Basically an instant classic. And if for only a few seconds, a lot of us got to see a little of ourselves in the seven-time Super Bowl champion.
