Share | TOM BRADY Posted byo Eiz n Thursday, 19 January, 2012, 7:14 AM Sometimes a story just writes itself. And at other times it is written for you by the star quarterback's wife. That was the position the New York Post found themselves in ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl, when an email written by the Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, spouse to the New England Patriots signal caller Tom Brady, found its way into their possession. "My sweet friends and family," it began. "This Sunday will be a really important day in my husband's life." She wasn't wrong. On Sunday Brady's Patriots take on the New York Giants with the quarterback seeking the fourth Super Bowl win of his career. Succeeding would place him alongside his childhood idol, Joe Montana, as well as the former Pittsburgh Steelers great Terry Bradshaw as the only quarterbacks ever to achieve that feat. Whether or not he was in need of this sort of assistance, of course, was a different matter. "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," continued the message. "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." The rest of the world simply envisioned Brady cringing as word of this story got out. Although he had played no part in the creation of the email, it was he – living out this week in the already intense spotlight of a Super Bowl week – who would have to live with the ridicule. In a sport driven by testosterone and machismo, this was, the Post declared, "disgustingly soppy". Then again, it's been a while since Tom Brady has fit neatly into the NFL mould. "Do you remember Tom Brady back when he was just a football player?" wrote Jason Schwartz in the opening line of a feature for ESPN The Magazine last October, going on to detail the Brady's ascent from athlete to transcendent cultural icon. Tom Brady no longer exists only on football fields but on billboards and the front pages of celebrity gossip magazines.
