Gisele Bundchen is rarely ever present to watch the Patriots play. She is obviously busy making millions of dollars, but Patriots fans probably feel as though she should stay busy more often. Once again, Gisele was on hand Sunday afternoon to watch Tom Brady and company lose one of the biggest games of their lives. As she exited her luxury box following the Super Bowl 46 loss, a Giants fan decided to heckle Gisele. She then did what a celebrity or athlete should never do: responded.
“Eli rules!” the fan yelled according to CBS New York. “Eli owns your husband!”
“You (have) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” Bundchen fired back. “My husband cannot (bleeping) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
Known for being a great teammate and great leader on and off the field, Brady will likely cringe when he hears about the exchange. Gisele is right about New England’s receivers needing to catch the ball. Brady’s favorite target, Wes Welker, had the most important drop of the game on a drive where the Patriots could have used a score. Aaron Hernandez and Deion Branch each dropped a pass as the Patriots were fighting for their lives with under a minute to go. Mistakes killed New England, but everyone on the team made them — Brady included.
Between this and the sickening email Gisele sent to family members last week, Brady’s wife isn’t earning any points among a fan base that widely considers her to be a jinx.
