Want to play flag football with Tom Brady? Figured. Well, when No. 12 takes the field Friday at Harvard Stadium, you could be receiver Wes Welker for a day. The informal game kicks off the Audi Best Buddies Challenge: Hyannis Port, a 100-mile charity ride and walk benefiting Best Buddies International, the nonprofit devoted to helping people with intellectual disabilities. (The ride is Saturday.) For a chance to play in the game, go to and click on the “enter the raffle’’ button. Also taking part will be Pats players past and present (Tedy Bruschi, Tully Banta-Cain, Julian Edelman, Christian Fauria, Rob Gronkowski, Dan Koppen, Welker), coach Bill Belichick, Mike O’Malley and Lauren Potter of “Glee,’’ Mini-Me Verne Troyer, former “Baywatch’’ beauty Traci Bingham, and chef Michael Schlow, who’ll handle the food at the tailgate party afterward. . . . Brady and his bride, Gisele Bundchen, are back from Mexico, where the Pats QB was memorably photographed shirtless on a water slide. Bundchen was spotted at an LA playground yesterday with her son, Benjamin, and stepson Jack.
