03/22/2013: During the infamous Thanksgiving Deadspin sight, MrsWilfork75 has a pointed comment for the people talking about her in saying "Its so nice to know that instead of being happy for a player that actually has a support system you guys have nothing else to talk about other than the way I look."
Apparently Vince's ex teammates should listen too. Former Patriot (and total malcontent in retirement) Ted Johnson took to the radio airwaves today, and has the brass to call Bianca "ugly," which he sluffed off saying "He won't hear this: Vince Wilfork."
Unfortunately, Teddy was wrong... and Vince took to Twitter to let him know:
Wilfork75: @tedj52 your barking up the wrong tree I hear and see everything motherf*cker
Let me apologize to my fans in advance of whatever I may say today but I do not play when it comes to my family
The story blew up locally and continues to be a hot topic of conversation. As a quick point of comparison, Johnson isn't the man to speak about domestic bliss. Ted Johnson and wife Jackie Johnson (now ex-wife) were famously arrested in 2006 for a domestic incident (though both declined to press charges). They were divorced five months later
There's no question at all that Vince Wilfork's wife Bianca Wilfork loves her husband. She routinely arrives at Patriots games, or public events wearing a bedazzled Patriots number 75 jersey with a nameplate reading "WIFEY."
But in 2008, Bianca's love for Vince found it's way into the NFL commissioners office, when she helped save her husband from suspension. Vince was forced to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell following a late and low hit on Broncos QB Jay Cutler. During the meeting, Bianca presented a video to Goodell, which showed a new angle on the play. This video was apparently enough to seal Vince's fate and save suspension.
Following Bianca's heroics, Vince was ridiculed across various forums for having "WIFEY" fight his battles for him. In November, 2008, Bianca spent the better part of her Thanksgiving weekend fighting with random commenters in the comment section of Deadspin in an effort to prove that Vince can fight his own battles.
Vince and Bianca have been together since his time at Miami, and this isn't your typical groupie-stalks-athlete story. Vince Wilfork was a freshman at football crazy University of Miami (FL), when he first found Bianca on the singles site blackplanet.com. Vince(who also claimed to be 220 pounds, despite tipping the scales at 350+) contacted Bianca, and uttered the fate sealing 6 words: "My name is Vince. Call me."
Vince was developing into a stud playing for the Hurricanes, and would ultimately wind up as a first round pick to New England. While Vince's star grew, he stayed loyal to the woman he fell in love with, which was frankly no small feat. While most men would run screaming the other way, Vince stayed with Bianca who was a 23 year old single mother of two, working two jobs, including one at Taco Bell.Vince Wilfork's wife Bianca Wilfork,
