From WCVB (Ch. 5):
“I am doing well. It’s good to be out here today and serve all these wonderful people and sign some autographs,” Brady told NewsCenter 5.
Brady appeared to be walking easily without a limp, as he moved through the crowd that gathered around him.
“I am thankful to be here in Boston. It’s my favorite holiday,” he said.

Tom Brady and his supermodel sweetheart Gisele Bundchen surprised everyone at today's annual Thanks-for-giving meal organized by Goodwill Industries at its Roxbury headquarters. Walking without a limp, the Pats QB upstaged a slew of pols who were present, including Senate President Therese Murray, House Speaker Sal DiMasi, Attorney General Martha Coakley, Environmental Affairs Secretary Ian Bowles, embattled City Councilor Chuck Turner, and Hizzoner Tom Menino, who tried without success to coax No. 12 to the microphone. Bundchen arrived first, and quickly put on an apron and got down to work dishing out stuffing, mashed potatoes, and squash. (We spied the ever-slender siren sneak one bean.) Brady showed up as the tables were being cleared, and was greeted by Bundchen with a kiss on the cheek. Later, Brady signed a few autographs while Gi, who seemed to be genuinely enjoying herself, chatted with folks and moved to the music playing in the background.
