Tom Brady’s wife asks friends to pray so Patriots win Super Bowl

February 2, 2012 |  9:34 am


This Super Bowl week has been relatively free of dust-ups or controversies. There was a bit of one Thursday, though, when the New York Post published a private email written by Tom Brady's wife, Gisele Bunchen, asking friends and family to pray for her husband.

“My sweet friends and family,” the supermodel wrote, according to the Post. “This sunday will be a really important day in my husband’s life. 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 ...

“So 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. “Thank you for your love and support. Love, G :)”

Meanwhile, Brady conceded Thursday that he can't help but think about the big games that got away.

“Every loss hurts," he said. "When we lost to the Colts in the AFC Championship Game, that hurt pretty bad. Last year losing to the Jets, you see other teams advance and you’re staying at home, they all [stink]. You have to move on, and use those as opportunities to learn. I think this team has done that. We’re a very mentally tough team. That’s probably one of the strengths of this team.”
