A Historic Celebration for Horford

In addition to being part of the team with the most championships in NBA history, Al Horford marked a personal milestone as the first NBA Champion from the Dominican Republic. During Friday’s parade, Horford sported a shirt that featured a famous photo of former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, taken after the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl victory in 2021. The photo, capturing Brady in a less-than-sober state, quickly went viral at the time, becoming an iconic and humorous moment in sports history.

Brady’s Reaction and the Shirt’s Popularity

When the image of Horford’s shirt hit social media, Tom Brady himself responded with an animated GIF of Jack Nicholson nodding, embracing the humor and the moment. This wasn’t the first time the image had been celebrated in such a fashion. Former Red Sox player J.D. Martinez also wore a shirt featuring the same image during spring training, just a few months after the original photo was taken. Brady, with his typical good humor, had remarked, “I will never live this down,” acknowledging the enduring popularity of the photo.

Al Horford’s choice of attire for the parade not only highlighted his sense of humor but also cemented a connection between Boston sports legends across different disciplines. As the Celtics celebrated their historic 18th championship, Horfordโ€™s shirt served as a playful reminder of the camaraderie and shared celebrations that unite athletes and fans alike.
