FALMOUTH, Mass. -- A Massachusetts couple whose son was born right before the Patriots 25-point comeback in the Super Bowl has named the newborn "Brady."
Sean Gaffney tells the Cape Cod Times he decided if the Plymouth couple's fourth child was born the Patriots would erase their 28-3 deficit.
The 7.7-pound baby boy was born at 8:49 p.m. Sunday, and mom Colleen says "Literally, right after he was born, they came back." The Patriots rallied for a 34-28 overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Their son was named after Patriots quarterback and game MVP Tom Brady.
Brady has an older brother and two older sisters, including 6-year-old Quinn, named after dad's favorite Notre Dame quarterback, Brady Quinn. The family dog is named Rudy, after inspirational Notre Dame walk-on Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger.
Gaga making moola
NEW YORK -- The Super Bowl was a triumph for fans of the New England Patriots but it also became very lucrative for Lady Gaga.
The superstar singer who performed at the halftime show sold about 150,000 digital albums and songs in the U.S. on Sunday, a 1,000 percent increase over the day before, according to Nielsen Music.
Sales of Lady Gaga's songs "Born This Way," "Bad Romance" and "Poker Face" all spiked. Her albums sold more than 23,000 downloads and she had over 125,000 song downloads.
Her best-selling song on Sunday was "Million Reasons," with 45,000 downloads -- up nearly 900 percent compared with the previous day' roughly 5,000.
Late Sunday, Lady Gaga announced plans for a 48-date world tour kicking off this summer.
Another parade in Boston
BOSTON -- The New England Patriots are taking their victory lap.
MVP quarterback Tom Brady and his teammates and coaches will parade through Boston Tuesday morning following the team's come-from-behind 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons in Sunday's Super Bowl.
In typical Boston fashion, players and other team officials will ride in duck boats, the World War II-era amphibious vehicles that are popular with tourists.
Giddy fans wearing Patriots garb were streaming into the city early Tuesday despite a messy forecast of rain and possibly some snow.
It's still not expected to be as bad as two years ago, when the Patriots victory parade was delayed a day as the region gritted through a season of historic levels of snow.
This is the Patriots' fifth championship.
