If you thought the folks in New England were over Gisele Bundchen's profane post-Super Bowl rip job of the Patriots' receivers, think again.
It's still a hot topic -- maybe the hot topic -- for Patriots Nation, with talk show callers and message board ranters weighing in on whether Tom Brady's supermodel wife was justified in her remarks or whether she sounded like a spoiled, poor-loser harridan.
As you might imagine, the vote is running heavily toward door no. 2.
In the unlikely event you missed it, an angry Bundchen was captured on tape saying: "My husband cannot (bleeping) throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time," referring to dropped passes in the game by Wes Welker, Deion Branch and Aaron Hernandez.
Welker, in particular, was profoundly apologetic after the game, saying he let the team down by dropping a ball he usually catches "1,000 times."
But apparently that wasn't good enough for Bundchen, who was already in a foul mood from being heckled by New York Giants fans as she made her way out of Lucas Oil Stadium Sunday night.
On the tape, a rowdy Giants fan is heard yelling: "Eli rules, Eli owns your husband!" And this apparently set off Bundchen as she and her entourage waited for an elevator.
You wonder what Brady's reaction was to all this. Did he tell Gisele to stick a sock in it when they finally got behind closed doors? Or did he say: "You're right, those guys couldn't catch a cold. Now where we going on vacation, the French Riviera?"
What she said sure won't endear Bundchen to the rest of the Patriots players. And I'm guessing things could get a little awkward if Gisele shows up at any off-season team functions.
One final note: Can you imagine Joe Flacco's wife, Dana, going off on Ravens receivers after Lee Evans failed to make that touchdown catch in the AFC Championship Game against the Pats?
Nah, me either.
Too much class.
