Bucs GM Responds To Lombardi Trophy Sculptor’s Daughter Demanding Apology From Tom Brady (TWEET)
The daughter of the original sculptor of the Vince Lombardi Trophy has been all over social media this week after she came out to tell her about her displeasure with the way Tom Brady handled the hardware during Wednesday’s victory parade. She also called on Brady to apologize.
Jason Licht does not agree.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager responded on Twitter with a GIF on Twitter telling Grohs to “lighten up.”
Lorraine Grohs’ father designed the original Lombardi Trophy and she told the news how she became so upset on how he tossed it from one boat to another, that she had trouble sleeping just thinking about it.
“It just upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football,” Grohs said, via Leslie DelasBour of FOX 4 Southwest Florida. “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 hard work.
“I personally would like an apology, not just to me and my family and the other silversmiths but to the fans, all the football fans and the other team’s players,” Grohs said.
