Zoo Atlanta names cockroach after Tom Brady

Did Kyle Shanahan blow the Super Bowl for the Falcons?

Zoo Atlanta may have lost its Super Bowl bet, but it was still able to do a little trolling.

The Falcons blew a 25-point lead to lose Super Bowl LI to the New England Patriots, causing Zoo Atlanta to lose a bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village in Providence, RI.

The bet was that the losing side would name a baby animal after the winning team's quarterback. 

Here he is, Tom Brady... the Madagascar hissing cockroach:

The two zoos actually agreed before the game that the animal would be a cockroach since the losing side would be "bitter."

But the zoo had a big "Brady Bunch" family of cockroaches to name, so they named the tiniest one Tom. 

Well played.
