NEW YORK (CBS) – The prayers of Gisele Bundchen and her entourage went unanswered on Super Bowl Sunday.
Tom Brady’s supermodel wife watched helplessly as Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker dropped a wide-open chance to seal the deal on another Lombardi Trophy for New England.
Instead, Eli Manning and the Giants stormed back to win Super Bowl XLVI, 21-17.
Gisele’s frustration was on full display Sunday night after Brady’s desperate Hail Mary pass fell short to end the game in Indianapolis.
“Eli rules!” exclaimed a fan after the game as Bundchen left her luxury suite at Lucas Oil Stadium. “Eli owns your husband!”
“You (have) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” she snapped back. “My husband cannot (bleeping) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
The exchange was caught on video and obtained by TheInsider.com.
Gisele later consoled Brady with a postgame embrace in full view of reporters and photographers.
It may have been a super night for the power couple, if not for key fourth-quarter drops by Welker, Deion Branch and Aaron Hernandez.
“It comes to the biggest moment of my life, and (I) don’t come up with it,” said Welker. “Most critical situation, and I let the team down.”
Was Gisele right to rip the Patriots receivers?
