Tom Brady faced his first blitz of the season today, and deftly ducked it. The Pats QB was at the center of a media scrum after practice, and managed to stay calm in the pocket. Though more comfortable talking about football than family, Brady did reveal that wife Gisele Bundchen is not pregnant, contrary to reports circulating on the Internet. "No. ItísÖNo," said Brady. "One is enough. I have dogs and thatís all I need." Asked about his very busy offseason, which included two weddings to Bundchen, Brady was said he's rested and ready: "Iím a very optimistic person. I cherish those moments. Thereís been great things happening in my life for a long time and certainly this year was no different and different areas of success with marriage and with children. Itís a great part of my life and so is work. Iím excited for all those things coming together." While his life might seem glamorous, the former sixth-round pick said celebrity does have a downside. "I had a little bit more privacy back in the past, but thatís okay and I learn to manage it and I still find ways to enjoy myself, certainly here - I always have fun here," he said. But leave it to us to ask the real tough question: Why wasn't Brady wearing a helmet while bicycling with his son the other day. (The Boston Herald ran a photo on its front page yesterday.) "Do I need a helmet? I do? Iím not even going very fast," said Brady. "Iíll get a helmet. Iíll see if Mr. Kraft can provide me with a helmet." We bet he can - and will. "I'll look for a Patriots bike helmet in the pro shop," Pats spokesman Stacey James said afterward.
