*THE REAL REASON:

Zoo Atlanta named a baby cockroach after the New England Patriots quarterback to fulfill a debt to Roger Williams Park Zoo and Carousel Village in Rhode Island after their hometown Atlanta Falcons were defeated by Brady in Super Bowl LI.

“Before the game, our two zoos decided the losing side would name one of their baby animals after the winning team’s star quarterback, and figuring the losing side would be pretty bitter about it, we came to the agreement that baby animal…would be a Madagascar hissing cockroach,” the zoo said in a Facebook post.
