A lot of people have gotten their panties in a bunch over Giselle Bundchen's little post-game outburst about the inability of various New England receivers to hang onto the ball. Now, any serious football observer knows that Brady wasn't throwing the ball well after he got crushed by Justin Tuck later in the game; the throw to Gronkowski was short, the one to Welker was high, and the one to Branch was behind him. Hernandez, on the other hand, has no excuse; he was turning up field to run and took his eyes off the ball before it got there.
But Giselle isn't an NFL commentator or a quarterback coach, she is Tom Brady's wife. I think it is fantastic that she was so willing to stick up for her husband, whether her defense of him made any sense or not, and it's admirable that something that was important to him - winning a 4th Super Bowl - was obviously important to her too.
Giselle is Brazilian. She almost surely cares far more about the World Cup than she does about the Super Bowl. But because she is married to a man who cares very much indeed about winning Super Bowls, she is emotionally invested in his passion and in his success. That's a sign of a good wife and a good companion.
And let's face it, she's not the only one who can't believe Wes Welker dropped that ball. Wes Welker can't believe Wes Welker dropped that ball either.
