I am writing this article because I found myself troubled after the Superbowl game. Tom Brady Gisele Bundchen – and the missing jersey became my focus, as I couldn’t for the life of me comprehend that Tom’s jersey was taken. Oh sure! Maybe certain people give thought to such things, but actually carrying them through? With swarms of security, other players, media and such? Consequently, I was sitting there with my mouth hanging open for quite a few minutes in disbelief.
Much as I hate to admit it, there are some people who can’t stand Tom Brady. I for one am a big fan of Tom and Gisele, and a Patriot’s fan from my earliest days. I can remember when the Patriot’s never went to the Superbowl and when it seemed they never would. In my opinion, Tom Brady is doing it right, with family, friends, teammates and business. His stolen jersey probably doesn’t mean a lot to some, but the man’s personal belongings were stolen and it’s a crime.
The first thing I thought was that Edelman must have taken it as a practical joke. I’m not sure why, but I know they’re friends and ‘all in good jest’ right? But when a prankster didn’t come forth soon after the incident, the speculation started. Was theft, revenge, fanaticism? Then came feelings of sorrow & compassion … yes emotions. The guy had to deal with this and I didn’t want him to have to.
He brought so much joy to Patriot’s fans and c’mon! What a game! Football fans had to appreciate the record breaking play of the New England Patriots. For someone to do this was just heartless. I would feel that way if anyone had their belongings stolen. It’s a terrible feeling. I heard the value could be in the vicinity of $400,000. The money isn’t the issue. It’s that he should have been able to do whatever he wanted with the shirt. Charity, personal reminder, mom, whatever…
Where was security? Certainly, in this day of high-ticketed memorabilia someone should have been assigned to keep an eye on things while he gave the news conference right? Maybe it wasn’t premeditated and just seemed like a good idea at the time?!? (NOT)!! What are your thoughts about this and thanks for listening to an old ladies’ rant about this injustice. I hope the case of Tom Brady Gisele Bundchen – and the Missing Jersey is solved. I hope the shirt comes back, just like the Patriots did.
