Burns, a former Miss Hooters International 2005, took a verbal shot after the Patriots loss in the AFC title game yesterday. You might remember something similar last year. Last year, it was supermodel and UNEP ambassador Gisele Bundchen, wife of quarterback Tom Brady, who said her husband could not throw and catch the ball at the same time, an obvious shot at Wes Welker who dropped a key pass in the Super Bowl. Yesterday, Welker again had a key drop on a key third down, but he also caught 8 balls for 117.
This year it’s Welker’s wife firing at the Baltimore Ravens Ray Lewis after his team eliminated the Pats.
Burns posted on her Facebook page a reminder everyone of Lewis’ checkered past and questionable character.
Burns posted “Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids, 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay! What a hall of fame player! A true role model!” following the team’s loss to the Ravens.
Although this is clearly sour grapes/sore loserdom, she does have a point. It is ridiculous how ESPN/NFL Network/CBS the whole mainstream media is deifying Lewis right now and glossing over all his questionable actions off the field. Yes, consider the source here but remember she is spot on here.
