Tom Brady celebrated his 32nd birthday yesterday, and his teammates used the occasion to have some fun at the signal-caller's expense. During the afternoon practice, lineman Matt Light discreetly swiped Brady's helmet during stretching. Then the team huddled and ambushed Mr. Gisele Bundchen by pouring a bucket of ice water on him and rubbing cake in his face. Light seemed to have the most fun, joking that Brady is too old now to hang out with. Asked what he and his teammates gave Brady, Light said, "We were going to go with some sort of denture cream...But he has got good teeth. We thought maybe Rogaine or something, but his hair is looking pretty nice. What do you get for Tom Brady, I don't know?" Bill Belichick didn't seem to care that it was No. 12's big day. When Brady and Dan Koppen misfired on a quarterback-center exchange, they were made to run a lap. "I thought that was kind of cute," said Light. "You don't run alone on your birthday." Brady celebrated his birthday by attending last night's Coldplay concert at the Comcast Center. The QB was right down front, just a few feet away from singer Chris Martin
