The New England Patriots do not handle losing very well. Following Tom Brady's final incomplete pass of Super Bowl XLII, head coach Bill Belichick walked off the field and into the locker-room before the final seconds ticked off the clock. Following Super Bowl XLVI, Brady sat at his locker, a towel wrapped over his head, and sobbed for more than 30 minutes. Meanwhile, out in the corridor, his wife, Gisele Bundchen, unleashed a vulgar rant about his wide receivers.
That sort of postgame madness continued on Sunday following a 28-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game. This time however, it was Anna Burns Welker, the wife of wide receiver Wes Welker, who jumped onto Facebook and took aim at Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
"Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis' Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay! What a hall of fame player! A true role model!" she wrote.
The former Miss Hooters International has since apologized and removed her post, but not before it spread like wildfire. The irony of the situation is that a year ago, Bundchen's losing rant focused on Anna's husband, Wes.
“You [have] to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” Bundchen said after Super Bowl XLVI. “My husband cannot f—- throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
Bundchen's rant prompted a reply from then-running back Brandon Jacobs, who told her to "stay cute and shut up." He later apologized.
