In 2012, Gisele Bündchen made an infamous remark following the Patriots’ loss to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, in which several receivers dropped crucial passes from her husband, Tom Brady.
“My husband cannot f****** throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” Bündchen said.
Almost exactly six years later, back on football’s largest stage, Brady had a chance to prove her wrong.
It didn’t work out, and seemingly everyone on Twitter made the exact same joke.
Gisele was right.

Wow looks like Gisele was right, her husband really CAN'T throw and catch the ball at the same time

Gisele did warn us he can’t catch.

To paraphrase Gisele in 2012, Tom Brady can throw the ball, but he cannot catch it, too. Brady drops a #SuperBowl pass as the #patriots go scoreless on another drive. Live updates: https://t.co/Uhr9mVXLtz pic.twitter.com/9V23r0zoYj

IS IT TOO LATE TO TWEET THE GISELE JOKE
— Pablo S. Torre (@PabloTorre) February 5, 2018
You get the idea, and that’s just the tip of the social media iceberg.
Nick Foles, on the other hand…
One of THE wildest plays we've ever seen in a #SuperBowl. Hands down.

The Eagles quarterback’s touchdown catch late in the second quarter only deepened the irony.

Somebody needs to make that meme with the dude and the girl and he's staring at the other girl, but make the dude Gisele looking back at Foles.
I can't do it, so this crappy tweet is all you're getting.
