Brady High-Five Miss - Patriots.jpg

Tom Brady has been seeking his fourth Super Bowl ring for nearly nine years. This season, he's been also searching for a solid high-five.

His awkward quest suffered another miss after Saturday night's win over the Colts, as this high-five attempt fell woefully short during a group celebration in the Patriots' locker room. The above photo was shared on the team's Facebook page Sunday. Brady [at right] couldn't crack the huddle as LeGarrette Blount and a group of players enjoyed the 43-22 victory.

Brady ill-fated high-five quest reached its peak during New England's victory over the Ravens.

But it wasn't his first big miss this season.

There's an NFL video of some of Brady's high-five whiffs.

Julian Edelman brushed off Brady's offering during New England's "show ponies and unicorns" victory over the Saints in October.

Brady spoke about his high-five woes in December. "Some of the guys showed me last night. I said 'Where were all my guys?' They were all running on the field. Jules [Julian Edelman] says, 'Don’t worry. I’m gonna find you next time.' I don’t know. It’s been all year. I can’t find anyone to get in there with me," he told WEEI's "Dennis and Callahan."

That remains the case as of Saturday night.

Brady implored his full "Goofy" face and was able connect with Blount in New England's win over Pittsburgh. But we were left with a look that only Gisele could love.

Brady hopes to have several opportunities to connect in a celebratory manner with his teammates next week in the AFC Championship game.

One win away from the Super Bowl for the eighth time in 12 seasons? That has to be worth at least one really solid, straight-faced high-five.

Somebody give this man a high-five, please.

Stay tuned.
