If God does care who wins the Super Bowl, Gisele Bundchen, wife of Tom Brady, would like a word.
Bundchen sent out what the NY Post described as a "disgustingly sappy e-mail" to friends and family to pray hard for her husband to win the championship.
It's not outrageous to think a wife would want her husband to play well in a big game, but this e-mail somehow landed in the hands of New York City's biggest tabloid, giving plenty of people an opportunity to scrutinize.
“I feel Tommy really needs our prayer, our support and love at this time,” Bundchen said in the e-mail according to the Post.
“My sweet friends and family,” the e-mail began. “This sunday will be a really important day in my husband’s life. He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream of winning this super bowl . . . “So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this sunday. “Thank you for your love and support. Love, G :)”
There are two ways to look at this if you're a Patriots fan, either the franchise player's wife is worried the team's in trouble, or she's just covering her religious bases.
Common sense would tell you that just about anyone who's plugged into any form of media around the world at least is somewhat aware the Patriots are playing the Giants this weekend.
You'd think if you ended up on Gisele's personal e-mail list you would already be sending positive energy in the direction of Brady.
When contacted by the tabloid, the supermodel said she was "surprised" that they received a copy of the letter and that "it was a private note only sent to close friends and family."
No word yet if Giants coach Tom Coughlin will be reading the Gisele manifesto to his Giants players before Super Bowl 46.
