Is Gisele On Her Way To Becoming The Yoko Of The Sports’ World?

Who broke up the Beatles? Well, some will tell you it was John Lennon‘s then-wife Yoko Ono while others will blame creative differences. No matter what team you’re on, Yoko’s impact on not just Lennon, but the Beatles was obvious and hard to ignore. Sometimes a man in love has a hard time separating his heart from his work.

Just as Yoko did before her, Gisele is stepping in between Tom Brady and his teammates after the Patriots lost to the NY Giants this past weekend. Shortly after the game ended, Gisele was caught on tape saying:

“My husband can not fucking throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” she said while waiting for the elevator to leave the VIP suites at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium. “I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

Of course the “they” in this situation would be Brady’s teammates who, of course, were “disappointed” in her comments and passing of blame. TMZ says sources within the Patriots organization are claiming Gisele “violated a code of brotherhood,” by making the unnecessary statements.

It had been just days before that Gisele sent out an email to friends and family of the couple asking everyone to “pray” for Brady and his teammates so they could win the Super Bowl — a lot of good that email did.

Although you have to hand it to Gisele for standing by her man, she’s not really handling herself the right way. Sure it’s great to reassure your husband that “You played the best game of your life … you were amazing,” but to shit on the other players who worked just as hard is a low blow, especially to a bunch of guys who are already feeling the pangs of defeat.

So Gisele, you may want to take a look at what you’re possibly doing to your husband’s career. No wants to see Tom booted from the Patriots and you don’t want to have your name replaced in the phrase “pulling a Yoko.” No offense, but “pulling a Gisele,” just doesn’t have the same ring.
