After ending his season with a loss in the Super Bowl, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was there to be consoled by his Brazilian supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen.
Last week a private e-mail by Gisele, asking friends and family in advance of the Super Bowl to pray for Brady, was leaked to the media. In the message she wrote, “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.” You can’t say she doesn’t care about her man.
Flash-forward to Sunday night after the game. While Brady emerged from the contest unscathed, he and his team finished without victory. No doubt, Brady was sad. No doubt, Gisele was sad. And it all culminated with this embrace in their first time seeing each other post-loss.
Off-base people are going to say something like, “Oh, well at least he still gets to go home to Gisele,” like they’re speaking from experience. Why are you trying to act like you know how Brady feels, like you’ve been there before? Brady just lost the Super Bowl. That’s an experience few have ever felt. It’s perhaps the greatest low anyone who does what Brady does feels. Guaranteed, he’s not thinking about any consolation prizes right now.
Yeah, Brady is probably happy he gets to go home to Gisele after this loss, but most likely because he’ll have her company there to comfort him in his time of despair, not because he’ll get awesome cheer-up sex from a supermodel (though that’s not saying that won’t happen).
What you see in that video is a genuine life moment. A moment shared between a crestfallen individual and his life partner. All that was missing was this.
But that’s what life is about, man — having that special someone there for you through good times and bad. Either that or I just had “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo on my mind for the past 20 minutes.
