Brazilian Newspaper Refers to Tom Brady as 'Gisele Bundchen's Husband'

In the United States, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is an NFL legend. In Brazil, he's just "Gisele Bundchen's husband."

Brady won his fourth championship Sunday with a 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. That ties him for the most Super Bowl titles by a quarterback in NFL history. Yet he doesn't even get called by name on the front page in Brazil. (Note: "Marido" is Portuguese for "husband.")

There's nothing wrong with being described that way. However, Brady would probably appreciate a different title. Perhaps four-time champion, three-time Super Bowl MVP, two-time NFL MVP or 10-time Pro Bowler. Any of those would do.
