The Vallone Zone
A Giants fan hurled insults at Gisele Bündchen, wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, as she left the Super Bowl last weekend, but the supermodel has at least one defender in New York City: Councilman Peter Vallone.
Ms. Bündchen’s responded to the fans shout of “Eli owns your husband!” by criticizing Mr. Brady’s teammates. Her remarks have become earned her many enemies in Boston, but Mr. Vallone argued the Giants fan who mocked Ms. Bündchen acted even more inappropriately than the supermodel herself.
“yeah giselle said some classless things,” Mr. Vallone wrote on his Facebook wall. “you know what’s even more classless? grown men shouting at and harassing a woman.”
At a press conference this morning, Mayor Michael Bloomberg spent some time discussing the Giants’ Super Bowl victory last Sunday. Mayor Bloomberg started things off by saying he tried to invite his predecessor, Rudy Giuliani, to the victory parade, but “Rudy was traveling.”
“I don’t know that he was ever a big football fan. Rudy is a very big baseball–a very big Yankees, not baseball fan,” Mayor Bloomberg said.
He went on to reveal he used to feel self conscious because Mayor Giuliani reigned during the World Series between the Yankees and Mets in 2000.
“Deep down inside, I’ve always felt a little bit inferior because he delivered a Subway Series and I have not, but I have delivered, and I have a lot to do with this, two Super Bowl champions.”
Mayor Bloomberg went on to explain why he was instrumental in the Giants’ championship.
social media excitement!
Everyone who hasn’t been living under a rock knows the New York Giants whipped up an impressive victory in the Super Bowl last night. However, even rock-dwellers were aware of the news if they were friends with any elected officials on Facebook.
Generally, the excited politicians’ responses needed at least five exclamation marks.
Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley and State Senator Marty Golden were examples of this. Ms. Crowley wrote “NY Giants XLVI Super Bowl Champions!!!!!” while Mr. Golden wrote “Congratulations to the SuperBowl Champions the New York Giants!!!!!! Go Big Blue.”
Councilman Jumaane Williams, who correctly predicted the score of the game, might have been the most excited of them all. “UH…Yeah! We did it again. ANY DAMN QUESTIONS!!!!!!!” he declared, adding “WHOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!” He also had another “WHOAA” post containing 50 exclamation marks.
