The past four years or so have been quite frustrating for Patriots fans. While they certainly don’t deserve any sympathy after all the success their team had in the early part of the 21st century, losing to the Giants in the Super Bowl twice in four years has to sting. Diehard New England fan Mark Wahlberg understands just how painful it has been, and he has even gotten into trouble with his wife as a result.
According to WENN, Wahlberg became so upset when the Giants won Super Bowl 46 that he threw his friends out of his house and yelled at his wife.
“She was so upset I wasn’t able to make it up to her until Valentine’s Day,” Wahlberg said. “She said, ‘You know, you’re never watching the game again (at home),’ but now she just hopes that the Patriots make it back to the Super Bowl so she can go on, like, a week vacation.”
Wahlberg and Tom Brady are close friends, so you can understand why he was more frustrated than the average fan. Then again, the average fan doesn’t get to go home to his multimillion-dollar home and buy anything they please to help dull the pain, so it’s tough to feel badly for Marky Mark. I’m guessing life goes on for him more quickly than the rest of us.
