The city of Atlanta is sure getting over Super Bowl LI quickly. Or not.

After losing a bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo, which stated the losing side had to name one of the babies at the zoo after the opposing team’s starting quarterback, Zoo Atlanta has complied.

But we’re pretty sure nobody saw this one coming.

Instead of a cute bear cub, a bouncing kangaroo or perhaps a slithering snake baby, Zoo Atlanta chose a Madagascar hissing cockroach after Tom Brady.

Which will never die.

Just like Tom Brady’s NFL career, it seems.
