With Patriots QB Tom Brady breaking records and leading his team to a record-breaking season win on Saturday night, all eyes were on the field at Giants Stadium. But the New York wags were scouring the suites for No. 12's galpal Gisele Bundchen, who one of our spies says was in the house, but deliberately keeping a low profile. (Very much unlike Jessica Simpson, who was blamed for her beau, Cowboys QB Tony Romo, having a horrible outing a couple of games ago.) Those in the know also tell us that Brady's parents and the Brazilian supermodel's family got together over the recent days. And it just so happens that the New York Post's Page Six reports that Bridget Moynahan, Brady's ex and the mother of his son, John, was spotted in New York. Moynahan went backstage to visit Bill Pullman after his performance in "Peter and Jerry," the tabloid reported yesterday.
A good sport off the field
And once his post-game press conference duties were over, Coach Bill Belichick
was spotted on the field at Giants Stadium with his girlfriend Linda Holliday
. Belichick, who had traded his faded gray sweatshirt for a crisp gray suit, stopped to pose arm-and-arm with Holliday for a few photos snapped by a few fans.
Perfect 'Pitch' for Fallon
You may not believe love actually bloomed between stars Jimmy Fallon
and Drew Barrymore
in the Red Sox-themed romantic comedy "Fever Pitch." Off screen, however, Fallon got the girl. The former "Saturday Night Live" regular and "Fever Pitch" producer Nancy Juvonen
were married on Saturday on Necker Island in the Caribbean, according to the Associated Press. The 33-year-old Fallon and Juvonen had "family and close friends in attendance" at the ceremony, according to the statement given to the AP by publicist Ina Treciokas
. The proposal took place in New Hampshire in August "on the dock at sunset at the Juvonen family home in Wolfeboro on Lake Winnipesaukee," a friend of the couple's told People magazine shortly after the engagement.
Down under, Cape sailor finishes on top
Hyannis summer resident Roger Sturgeon
has skippered his 65-foot yacht Rosebud to take the handicap honors in the prestigious Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race off the Australian coast. Race spokesman Bruce Montgomery
confirmed to the Associated Press that Rosebud's time of 2 days, 6 hours, 2 minutes, and 2 seconds was fast enough to beat Zephyr and Morna, which were still at sea late Saturday. (The handicap competition makes allowance for size and other characteristics of the yachts to determine a winner.) After the judges sorted through finishing times and other factors, Sturgeon was presented with the 18-pound, 2-foot-tall, silver Tattersall's Cup. Sturgeon's yacht was only the third US boat in 63 years - and the first in 30 years - to claim the overall honors in the Sydney-to-Hobart race, according to Melbourne's Herald Sun newspaper. "I'm ecstatic beyond belief. We had a plan and we stuck to it," said Sturgeon, who splits his time between the Cape, where he is a member of the Hyannis Yacht Club, San Francisco, and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. "It's unimaginable. The odds were huge," said Sturgeon, who is a semi-retired software engineer and inventor. "I wonder where they put that?"
Sturgeon's sister-in-law Michelle Hartford
told us after learning of the size of the trophy. For his part, Sturgeon seems to still be in disbelief about his fortune. "It makes me very embarrassed but very pleased," he told the Herald Sun.
Pops welcomes some notable 'Friends'
Actor Ron Raines
is best known to millions as the sometimes dastardly Alan Spaulding on the CBS soap opera "Guiding Light." But Raines was all smiles for the thousands at Symphony Hall hearing his "Gershwin & Friends" concerts with Keith Lockhart
and the Boston Pops over the weekend. Raines has his fifth show with the Pops tonight. . . . And when it's holiday concert season for the Pops, you can expect a number of local notables to get their calls to the stage. Clio's chef/owner Ken Oringer
was a narrator the other night and reports that it was "one of the most amazing experiences" of his life.
