Gisele Bundchen Blasts Tom Brady's Teammates
Gisele Bundchen is ripping into husband Tom Brady's teammates and triggering outrage among already-hurting Patriots fans.
Bundchen watched from a V.I.P. box as her husband's team went down to defeat.
Time and again, perfectly good throws from Brady were dropped.
Bundchen gave Brady a consoling hug when they met after the game. But the supermodel was caught on tape trashing the Patriots' wide receivers.
"They didn't catch the ball when you're supposed to catch the ball," she said. "My husband cannot throw the (blanking) ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times."
Her tirade is causing a firestorm in Boston.
Howie Carr of WRKO radio in Boston said, "Tom obviously needs to say something."
Carr said Brady should give his wife this advice: "Keep your mouth shut. And don't say anything except 'Hi, how are you?' "
"She should never have thrown Tom's teammates under the speeding bus," wrote one blogger.
"Not cool to curse at people and even worse to criticize your husband's teammates in public," said another.
"Sore loser!" said a third blogger.
But Bundchen has some supporters too.
"She was defending her husband," says one. "Leave her alone."
Bundchen has long been viewed by some Patriots fans as a jinx on her husband and his team.
One newspaper recently called her: "Jinxelle Bundchen."
After Sunday's defeat, a fan blogged: "She's a curse."
While triumphant Giants quarterback Eli Manning was celebrating with 11-month-old daughter Ava Frances and wife Abby, Brady and Bundchen, by contrast, were both glum as they commiserated with each other in a stadium corridor.
Her angry blast at her husband's teammates came right after she was taunted by Giants fans, who yelled, "Eli rules. Eli owns your husband."
