An email sent by Gisele Bundchen to friends and family asking them to pray for Tom Brady before the Super Bowl has sparked widespread ridicule in New York.
The sappy Brazilian supermodel (and Brady's wife) writes: "Dear sweet friends and family. This Sunday will be a really important day in my husband's life."
"I feel Tommy really needs our prayer, our support and love at this time."
Excuse us while we vomit on cue.
"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."
"So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he feels confident, healthy and strong before this Super Bowl. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this Sunday."
Boo hoo. As if being a handsome, multi-millionaire NFL legend who sees Gisele Bundchen nude weren't enough, l'il "Tommy" needs positive thoughts to be confident, healthy and strong? Does Melinda Gates pray for Bill's continued affluence?
Get outta town. This prayer is equally pointless because God was been waiting smack the Patriots down for eliminating Tim Tebow and His Broncos. Bank on it.
Not to mention, the Giants' pass rush will inflict too much pressure on Brady, while Eli Manning has been playing out of his mind. The Giants also have Victor Cruz.
