An improbable victory attained by default; achievement only made possible by the stupidity/clumsiness/misfortune of others.
Etymology: In the 2002 Winter Olympics men's 1000m Speed Skating final, a stumble caused the four leading men to collide in a tangle of arms, legs and blades. Australian Steven Bradbury came from behind and coasted past his fallen competitors to win his country's first ever Winter Olympics gold medal.
Crikey! He's done a Bradbury!

To win as a result of miraculous circumstances, despite being in a losing position. Especially in the case of sporting triumph. Not to be confused with "homer".

Comes from Australian speed skater Steven Bradbury's win in the 1000m at the 2002 Winter Olympics when every other skater crashed on the last corner.
Guy: Holy shit. You were coming last and yet won the race when every other car was involved in a massive pile-up.

Driver: Looks like I just pulled a bradbury.

Basically its to win a contest as you're last the one standing. Came to phrase after Steven Bradbury's inspirational gold medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics Speed Skating event, when all other contestants crashed out leaving im as the winner!
Robbo was struggling in last place at the Gunamundra Annual Billy Cart race, when a huge bull stormed across the path and stopped, causing the 5 billy carts in front to veer off the track in to the scrub and out of the race. Crowd were cheering "Do a Bradbury" as he crossed the line as the victor!

the single most badass female character (with the possible exception of Meg) to ever appear on Supernatural. Charlie is a gamer, a Woman of Letters, and a genius. Adopted little sister of the Winchesters. Idolizes Hermione Granger.
SPN fan #1: Man the show is getting way better at representing queer characters!
SPN fan #2: Yeah, it's all thanks to the little ball of badass that is Charlie Bradbury!

A guy named Freddy Bradbury will capture you with his good looks and you will fall for him forever. His smile lights up anyone’s world and his laugh. He’s very funny and weird in a good way. He’s also very fit of course and has good style. He’s very popular and is a skater boy. He’s definitely boyfriend material but obviously i haven’t trialed that yet.
Girl 1: oh is that Freddy Bradbury?

Girl 2: yes omg he’s so fit i’ve literally liked him for a year
