NEW ORLEANS - NOVEMBER 30: Quarterback Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots celebrates after Laurence Maroney scored a 2-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter against the New Orleans Saints at Louisana Superdome on November 30, 2009 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Tom Brady hasn’t celebrated like this since Feb. 6, 2005. The Patriots quarterback had a reason (yet unconfirmed) to be excited on Saturday evening after Orb won the Kentucky Derby. As the three-year-old horse’s connections were filtering out of their box while celebrating, Brady filed in with a small entourage to get in on the excitement. Brady was joined by Tedy Bruschi and Dan Koppen in the celebration. Wes Welker was also in Louisville for the Derby, and that may just be the former New England wide receiver jumping on Brady and Bruschi at the end of the video. Bruschi found the feeling familiar, yelling “You just won the Super Bowl!” at one point. There’s a rumor out there that Brady may have had some money on Orb. That would explain the overt glee expressed by Brady and his buddies after the big win. Rumor at the track is Tom Brady put $4700 on Orb to win— Smart Football (@smartfootball) May 04, 2013 Brady was offered to join the connections in the winner’s circle, but declined. Check out Brady and his former teammates celebrating Orb’s victory in the video below (there may be some barely-audible NSFW language, but it’s so faint we can’t really tell). Photo of the Day That’s a nice catch by former Red Sox Josh Reddick. Tweet of the Day This seems to be the consensus after another disappointing Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight. We need another Tyson, ya'll.—   (@RumfordJohnny) May 05, 2013 Video of the Day This video should serve as a lesson to always hustle — even in the infield. Your browser does not support iframes.
