Gisele Bundchen celebrates: Tom Brady made it to the Super Bowl again

Congratulations my love! @tombrady #gopats ✨✨✨✨✨✨Parabéns meu amor! @tombrady

I happily spent the weekend absorbed in the Australian Open and the Women’s March, but I know that many people were focused on the NFL Conference Championships, which determined which teams will play the Super Bowl. Well, guess what? The Packers lost to the Atlanta Falcons and the Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the New England Patriots. So the Super Bowl will be Falcons vs. Patriots, which means Tom Brady will be making history with his seventh Super Bowl appearance.

As you can imagine, Gisele Bundchen is thrilled. She went to the game last night and she was live-tweeting and posting photos and more. Which brings me to a thought… it feels like Gisele is more accepted in the Boston football community these days, right? I remember when there was a lot of angst about Tom and Gisele amongst Patriots-lovers, but the conversation seems to have eased up a lot. I kind of think that happened over the past few years, as it seemed like Gisele and Tom were having problems but they worked through it. Like, people realized they were human after all. That being said… we need more deflated ball jokes.

    I don’t care about the footballs to be honest, but I do care about Atlanta, a lot (native). So this makes me bigly happy. From what I hear they had an amazing game last night.

    I need the football Gods to deny Tom Brady this year.

    To have Trumpzilla’s crush/buddy win the Superbowl and have to put up with his insufferable tweets would nauseate me no end.

  3. Llamas says:

    I’m so sick of the patriots. I hope the falcons win.

  4. lucy2 says:

    I’m so sick of them winning all the time. It’s boring, and I really don’t want to see him win another one. I think I’ll be rooting for the Falcons.

  5. Lacia Can says:

    I think the dislike was for once suggesting that Brady’s teammates were letting *him* down. Something along the lines of, “He can’t catch the ball too.” Even if they were dropping passes left and right, you just don’t say that. Not only is it unkind, one day it’ll be your husband needing his teammates’ support.

    I hate how the Patriot’s win is being framed as revenge against Goodell. How dare he suspend Brady for breaking the rules! The announcers need to let it go.

    • susiecue says:

      Yes!! Thanks for the reminder. Just looked it up. This was her bratty comment: “You’ve to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot fucking throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

      • LaciaCan says:

        Thanks for looking up the exact quote. It’s much worse than I remembered! Easy to understand why she rankled Pats fans and the players. I’d like to think she ate a lot of crow afterward.

      • lol says:

        You don’t remember anything about this story. You don’t even know why she said that. She was right.
        And who said his teammates don’t like her? CB? So it must be true. LOL.

    • lightpurple says:

      People have been against Giselle since she arrived on the scene. A local gossip column even had followers who called themselves “Team Bridget” who would go ballistic if anyone had anything remotely positive to say about Giselle. They accused her of “jinxing” the team. The quote about dropping the football occurred after a Super Bowl loss, during which, yes, lots of them dropped the ball, and Giselle and Bianca Wilfork had to walk through a crowded area unprotected, where they were being harassed and heckled by Giants fans and she responded to one of their profanity laden taunts. The women should not have been subjected to the situation to begin with and Bianca Wilfork filed a complaint that the team forwarded to the NFL that players’s wives should not have to put up with such harassment and should be given some protecton. A week later, Giselle and Brady vacationed with Wes Welker, one of the guys who repeatedly dropped the ball.

  6. Britt says:

    Is she pregnant?

    • Miss M says:

      Yes, I think she is! This is the rumor in Brazil when she was doing a photoshoot and there was a visible bump. Well, she does look pregnant, 🙂
      But there is no official comment on it…
      Ps: let’s go Pats!!!!!

  7. Jenns says:

    Well, if he wins, then Benn Affleck’s nanny can put another ring on her finger.

  8. Nancy says:

    Basketball fan here, but I would root for anybody going against the Brady Bunch. Sorry Kitten, I think I remember you’re a fan, and if so, I take it back!!

  9. Syko says:

    Newly-minted temporary Atlanta Falcons fan here. I’m actually a Chiefs fan, but the Steelers killed our dreams this year, so I was kind of glad the Patriots eliminated the Steelers, but good grief, I am sick of Tom Brady. He tied some record of Joe Montana’s yesterday, so there was this big argument online about who is better, Brady or Montana. Well, if you count any points for class, Brady will never be Joe’s equal. Joe Montana always gave the credit for the good stuff to his teammates, and took the blame for things that went wrong. Class act. Brady is not.

    • Lightpurple says:

      And all Brady’s comments last night were about how much he loves being part of that team.

    • Embee says:

      @Synko would you be sick of Tom Brady if he played for the Chiefs? No. As he breaks and sets records, he stays a class act being proud to play with his team.

      • Cathy says:

        @Embee, you are right. Brady is highly thought of in Boston and around the league because he is a genuinely nice guy. I listened to an aisle usher at a local stadium near Boston go on and on about what great things Brady does for kids in the community. He is part of one of the best (if not THE best) franchises in the NFL, and Brady haters everywhere would love to have him on their team if the opportunity arose.

  10. swak says:

    You know, it’s not only Brady going to the Super Bowl, it’s the whole team. He doesn’t make it there all by himself. Time for Gisele to congratulate the entire team.

    • teacakes says:

      the literal next words after her congratulations are the hashtag #gopats, though.

      • Swak says:

        To me that’s an after thought. I feel that way in any team sport where one person is made to be the reason a team makes it to playoffs. Just a peeve of mine.

      • Miss M says:

        @teacakes: don’t even bother…In Gisele’case is d@mned if she does, d@mned if she doesn’t! My God…

  11. OSTONE says:

    Let’s go Atlanta Falcons!!!!! Rise UP!!! (Have lived in Atlanta the past 14 years and consider it my second home!)

  12. Embee says:

    I was sick in bed all weekend. Seeing the Patriots win made me all better this morning. They’ll always be my team even though I now live in Florida.

  13. L says:

    Being from CDN now living in New England, it has been amazing to watch the Patriots. I was not here when the team struggled years ago. I can see how it can be annoying to watch one person (Brady) be so good but looking at the bigger picture we are really watching a team make history. There will never be a player like Brady again so let’s just see what he can do,for how long he can do it. The team has some amazing other players too. Blunt! Ps my husband who was a huge Brady fan has not put on his jersey since the election.

    • Alix says:

      I couldn’t care less (or understand less) about football, but I’m a New Englander, so go Pats.

      And while Brady certainly isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer, I gotta tip my hat to a guy who keeps himself in such great physical shape that he’s still in his prime at age 39, when most football players are retired and held together with duct tape. There’s a professionalism there I have to admire. Now as to his choice of friends…

    • lightpurple says:

      @L, I was screaming last night when 7 players could not bring LaGarette down. He kept plowing through.

  14. Heather says:

    Love the Brady Bunch and GO PATS!!!!! They are supportive of each other, and not afraid to show it (and their love for their kids) on social media.

  15. Stella in NH says:

    I am a Pats Fan and have been one way back when they didn’t win anything. Now I REALLY want the Patriots to win mainly because Goodell will have to give Tommy the trophy. He has vilified the Patriots over a trumped up charge with deflategate. It is amazing that players who have done worse, only got a slap on the wrist. I want him to do the walk of shame in front of the Patriots Nation. I want him to feel truly uncomfortable.

  16. Cinderella says:

    Matt Ryan was on fire this weekend!

  17. DesertReal says:

    I’m a Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions fan, who used to live in Georgia, but currently resides in Pittsburgh, & F**k the Boston cheetahs!
    I’ll be rooting for the ATL.

    • Cathy says:

      Lol, I rarely hear of other Detroit Lions fans, but I am one of those! Inherited my fascination with them from my dad, RIP, and three bros. Since Brady QB’d at Michigan I have always followed his career. I am astounded how, year after year, Brady makes most others around him better (yes, I know, his teammates are good in their own right, too). And say what you will about Belichick, but that guy can coach circles around any others in the NFL. B & B is a hard combination to beat. This year’s Super Bowl should be terrific because the Falcons are the real deal.

  18. sunshine gold says:

    So tired of Brady and his vanilla robot personality that just hedges and evades every criticism or serious question. I would have 100% more respect for him if he would just admit his friendship with Trump.

  19. Amanda says:

    I agree with whoever said that there will never be another Brady. I hate how everyone hates the Pats because of how good they are. My friend (steelers fan) -and I watched the game together, and of course when we won, the whole cheating thing got brought up. Come on people. Yet when I looked up the stats, turned out steelers have had more cheating scandals then the Pats soooooo….eat it. Also, who cares about his friendship with Trump. What are we, 7 years old and back in elementary school?
