A little more than five years ago, Tom Brady left his girlfriend Bridget Moynahan to start a relationship with supermodel Gisele Bundchen. A few months later, Moynahan announced she was pregnant with the quarterback’s baby. The future Hall of Famer showed up for the birth and has reportedly been very involved in the child’s life, but since the separation, Brady has yet to win another Super Bowl. This relationship drama has caused many fans and members of the media to jokingly claim Bundchen’s presence has cursed the New England Patriots. Unfortunately, what was once considered a weird coincidence has now turned into a full blown scandal after the super model was caught lambasting her husband’s receivers on tape after Sunday’s Super Bowl loss.
In a brief rant following the heckles of a few fans, Bundchen said her husband “cannot fucking throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time.” The Patriots were beset by a few costly drops, which some have argued ultimately cost the team another title. Not surprisingly, her diatribe has been played constantly in the Boston area and even on national telecasts like SportsCenter. It remains to be seen whether her words will cause any long-term friction between her husband and his tightends and wide receivers, but thanks to the intense media coverage, it’s fairly clear she should have just shut her mouth.
I get what Gisele was trying to do. In fact, her comments were very supportive of her husband. He played a pretty good game. Under different circumstances, his performance easily could have been good enough to win, but in the age of iPhones and the twenty-four hour media cycle, you can’t say these things in a public forum. Now, at some point, her husband is probably going to have to have a conversation with everyone who dropped a pass on Sunday explaining that he doesn’t blame them. That drama is pointless, and it’s not good for the team.
