While getting his playoff beard shaved off during a recent charity event, Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady jokingly detailed how his wife, Gisele Bundchen, is a “good witch” and uses superstitious rituals in an attempt to help him win.
The comments have some Christians accusing Brady and his wife of practicing “witchcraft.”
While leaning in a barber’s chair at Gillette’s World Shaving Headquarters in South Boston, the six-time Super Bowl winner was asked if he had any superstitions going into the New England Patriots recent Super Bowl against the Los Angeles Rams.
The answer Brady provided was a more detailed answer than some might have expected.
“You know, I’ve learned a lot from my wife over the years,” Brady responded, according to a video from CBS Boston. “She’s so about the power of intention and believing things that are really going to happen.”
The 41-year-old explained that his Brazilian supermodel wife, whom he wedded in 2009, “always makes a little altar for me at the game.”
“Cause she just wills it so much. So she put together a little altar for me that I could bring, with pictures of my kids,” He explained. “And I have these little special stones, and healing stones, and protection stones, that she has me wear a necklace.”
Brady further explained that he takes “drops” that his wife makes and then says a little “mantra.”
“I stopped questioning her a long time ago,” Brady assured. “It works.”
Having won three Super Bowls since 2015 at older ages, Brady said he has learned to “just shut up and listen” to his wife.
“And at first I was like, ‘This is kind of crazy,’” Brady admitted. “And then, about four years ago, we were playing the [Seattle] 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. It was pretty good.”
Brady said that Bundchen correctly predicted that the Patriots would not win the Super Bowl in 2016. The Patriots ended up losing to the Denver Broncos in the 2016 AFC Championship Game.
Brady added that she correctly predicted the next year was going to the Patriot’s year. The Patriots ended up winning the Super Bowl in 2017 with a victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
