The New York Post, as ever doing yeoman's service, obtained a copy of a "disgustingly sappy" email sent by Gisele Bundchen to friends and family asking them to send positive thoughts to her husband, Tom Brady, before Sunday's Super Bowl matchup against the New York Giants.

Bundchen's message reads like it was written by a guy selling art in the parking lot at a Phish show.

"My sweet friends and family. This sunday will be a really important day in my husband's life. He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream of winning this super bowl. [...] I feel Tommy really needs our prayer, our support and love at this time. [...]

"So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this sunday."

As if being himself and waking up next to a Brazilian supermodel weren't enough, Tom Brady now needs positive thoughts to be confident, healthy and strong? That's like Warren Buffett's wife asking friends to pray for his wealth. Let the rest of us have some, Gisele!
