Tom Brady has been part of the NFL for
19 seasons, and now we know the secrets behind his success. It seems like his
wife, Gisele Bundchen, has been really helpful in the process.
The 41-year-old quarterback says Gisele
does all these rituals to push him closer to the big win.
“I’ve learned a lot from my wife over the years,” Brady said. “She’s so about the power of intention, and believing things that are really going to happen and she always makes a little altar for me at the game, because she just wills it so much. So she put together a little altar for me that I could bring with pictures of my kids.
“I have these little special stones and healing stones and
protection stones and she has me wear a necklace and take these drops she makes
and say all these mantras.”
Brady was really confused at the
beginning, but it helped him a lot.
“At first, I was like, ‘this is kind of crazy,'” the quarterback said. “And then, about
four years ago, we were playing the Seahawks and she said ‘You better listen to me: This is
your year, but this is all the things you’re going to have to do to win,’ and I
did all those things, and by God, you know, it worked.”
“I stopped questioning her a long time ago,” Brady
said when asked if he still questions Gisele’s
suggestions. “I just shut up and listen.”
The Patriots defeated Seattle in Super
Bowl XLIX, and Brady knew he was doing something good.
Gisele can also predict the future.
“In 2015, it was early January and she said, ‘You know how
much I love you?’ And I said, ‘Yea,’ and she said, ‘I just want to let you
know, this is not going to be your year,'” Brady said. “And of
course, we lost, so I said, ‘What does  look like.’ And she said, ‘
is going to be your year.'”
“So it was early January this year and I said, ‘Babe, I’m
asking, do we have a chance [to win it all]?'” Brady said. “And
she said, ‘Yea, but you’re going to have to do a lot of work and you’re going
to have to listen to me.’ So man, I listen to her.”
The Patriots defeated the Los Angeles
Rams in Super Bowl LIII, and Gisele made a nice comment after the win.
“Right after the game, she said, ‘See, I did a lot of work.
You do your work. I do mine,'” Brady said. “She said, ‘You’re lucky
you married a witch, I’m just a good witch.'”
