Tom Brady just had the honor of having a baby animal named after him by the Atlanta zoo.

Did you read that? The ATLANTA zoo. Home of the Falcons and angry football fans after the Patriots beat the Falcons in OT in the Super Bowl.

One of the more unusual grudge bets surrounding the Super Bowl this year was between Zoo Atlanta and the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Rhode Island - Patriot territory. According to CNN, the bet was the losing zoo had to name one of their animals after the winning team's QB. Knowing the loser would be mad, they both agreed that animal that would get the name would be a Madagascar hissing cockroach.

So, when you visit Atlanta, go to the zoo and say "hi" to Tom Brady, the Madagascar hissing cockroach.
