When the last second ticked off the clock atÂ Super Bowl XLVI, there was no denying thatÂ Gisele Bundchen’s Super Bowl prayersÂ had been left unanswered. After all, her husband’sÂ Patriots fell to the Giants. As she made her way down to the New England locker room from her seat, Tom Brady’s supermodel wife didn’t hold back on her feelings about the final minutes of the game.
As Bundchen walked to the elevator, someone, presumably a Giants fan, could be heard screaming, “Eli owns your husband!” Bundchen didn’t respond directly to the fan. But just before she got into the elevator, she let out a curse word while complaining that Brady can’t throw the ballÂ andÂ catch it at the same time. She was seemingly referring to any one of several key dropped passes late in the game.
Gisele didn’t shout back … but turned to a friend and said, “My husband can not f****ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
With a little more than four minutes left and New England leading, 17-15, the usually-reliable Wes Welker dropped a key pass that would have put the Patriots in the red zone and in a position to put the game away. After theÂ Giants went on to win, an emotional and clean-shaven Welker blamed himself for the final result, seemingly affirming Gisele’s point of view.
“It’s a play I never drop.Â Most critical situation and I let the team down,” the distraught Welker said. “It comes to the biggest moment of my life and I don’t come up with it. It’s discouraging.”
