Although some commentators disagreed, GotTannins was very excited to see wine showcased by Tom Brady's girlfriend in the biggest game of the year on worldwide TV.

Gisele was shown several times sipping an unidentified red wine. This contrasts with injured NY Giant Jeremy Shockey who was pictured in the owners box, looking absolutely sozzled, with about three different drinks in front of him.

A Super Controversy Is a Glass of Wine Offside at Football's Biggest Game? The Blogs and Ms. Bündchen Disagree
February 16, 2008; Page W3 It was one of the most controversial moments of the Super Bowl, but you might have missed it amid all that talk about who actually won.
