(With apologies to Hubie and Bertie)
Both local dailies had items on Anna Burns (This Wife Is on Fire!) Welker’s Facebook flameout after the Pats and hubby Wes dropped the ball in Sunday’s AFC title tilt. Boston Herald’s Inside Track:
Gisele Bundchen hasn’t rung in yet, but our new favorite Patriot wife, Anna Burns Welker, got on Facebook yesterday and ripped Ray Lewis after the Pats fell to the heinous Baltimore Ravens in theAFC Championship game. “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.”
Boston Globe’s Names:
Wes Welker’s wife rants about Ray Lewis
Not everyone is thrilled that Baltimore is going to the Super Bowl. The day after Ravens QB Joe Flacco outplayed flaccid Pats QB Tom Brady, wide receiver Wes Welker’s wife, Anna Burns Welker , posted a nasty note about Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis on her Facebook page. “Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’s Wikipedia page,” wrote the former Miss Hooters International. “6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!” (Welker’s wife was referring to a January 2000 bar fight in which two men were stabbed to death. Lewis and two others were indicted for murder, but the charge against Lewis was dropped and he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.)
Nice touch, that Miss Hooters International thing. But only the Track Gals (without Megan!) had this:
At this juncture we feel it’s our duty to point out that Gi is in no danger of losing her hated nickname: Jinxele. Since the advent of The Bundchen Era, 12 has lost two Super Bowls, two AFC Championship games, one AFC divisional playoff game and one AFC wild card game. He’s missed a season with a wrecked knee and was walking in a cast right before Super Bowl XLII.
To be fair, the Globe did have the better Aly Raisman photo.
