Tom Brady struggled to wipe away tears after his Super Bowl defeat at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Anyone would — given the weight of those five Super Bowl rings.
No, the G.O.A.T. had a moment of humanity and his wife and supermodel Gisele had to give the world the photographic proof.
“Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super bowl, what a game that was!” Bundchen said on Instagram. “Congratulations Patriots for giving your best and to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see ever day all the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do.”
“We love you!”
Not sure that’s the messaging his fiercely competitive husband would want to share, let alone the imagery.
Then again, in a nation that’s obsessed with ‘macho’ images, maybe it does a little good to see a grown man cry after getting his heart broken.
Gisele didn’t stop with the mushy message about Brady’s loss, however, she stirred the pot with her kicker.
“Sometimes you have to let other people win… We have to share. Sharing is caring,’’ she wrote.
That’s… not the way it works. At least, one would hope, given the controversies about the Patriots in the past.
She got quite the response on social media.
No Gisele…wrong message to your kids. Tom lost the super bowl, he didn't allow the other team to win…they beat his team. She should be teaching them the lessons about losing and dealing with it gracefully…its life.

Should have said sometimes other people win no matter how hard you try, NOT you "let" them win. But, being gracious in defeat is as important as being kind when you win.

They are worth $Billions. Don't worry, they weren't THAT crushed. They'll be fine

If it’s one thing that Americans can’t relate to, it’s a couple of multi-millionaires feeling sorry for themselves, while they’re indulging in arrogant boasting. Sometimes, celebrities truly seem to live on another planet.
