Jona Rechnitz's $1,000 bet on a safety being the first scoring play of the Super Bowl may have seemed like he was just throwing away good money. That was until Tom Brady was called for intentional grounding in the end zone of the first quarter of Sunday night's game. Brady's mistake meant a big payday for Rechnitz who was getting 50-to-1 odds on a safety being the game's first scoring play. Do some quick math, and you'll realize that he won $50,000 on his gamble. That story by itself would be a pretty cool one, but it gets even better...

“She just needs to continue to stay cute and shut up,” he told reporters.
Here's the video that sparked the outrage:
Tom Brady doesn't think back to his time at Michigan much. This week, especially, he's too consumed with preparing for a Giants defense determined to make his life miserable to focus on anything else.
Gisele Bundchen wasn't happy with the way husband Tom Brady's receivers let him down at crunch time during the New England Patriots' 21-17 loss to the New York Giants in last night's Super Bowl XLVI.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Eli Manning and the Giants one-upped Tom Brady and the Patriots again, coming back with a last-minute touchdown to beat New England 21-17 Sunday night for New York's fourth Super Bowl title.
It was a rematch of the 2008 NFL championship, when Manning led New York past New England to ruin the Patriots' bid for a perfect season.
