Atlanta Zoo Names Cockroach After Tom Brady

Tom Brady dashed the Atlanta Falcons' championship dreams by leading the New England Patriots to a memorable Super Bowl LI comeback victory. An Atlanta zoo coped with the heartbreaking defeat by naming a cockroach in the quarterback's honor.

According to Zoo Atlanta's Facebook post, it lost a bet with Rhode Island's Roger Williams Park Zoo that required the loser to name a baby animal after the winning quarterback.

They did not, however, specify the species.

Rather than select a cute, cuddly creature, Zoo Atlanta took the petty route and named a cockroach after Brady. Tom Brady the cockroach and a family of insects named after children from The Brady Bunch joined the zoo's collection.

It's going to be impossible to fit five Super Bowl rings on that tiny cockroach.
