Look: Patriots pulling out all the stops for Tom Brady’s 41st birthday

Friday marks Tom Brady’s 41st birthday and to no surprise the New England Patriots are making sure the revered quarterback’s big day is being celebrated accordingly.

The Patriots have been chronicling all the stops pulled out for Brady’s birthday on Twitter. Among the bells and whistles are an absolutely ginormous No. 12 birthday cake, an impressive balloon version of Brady and a giant birthday card celebrating the quarterback’s “GOAT” credentials.

And here’s the birthday boy making his way to the practice fields.

As is often the case, Patriots’ practice was well-attended, with perhaps even more fans in place that than usual given it’s Brady’s birthday. Patriots Nation made sure to welcome Brady with a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday.”

Brady’s birthday always makes for a festive atmosphere at Patriots’ training camp, and Friday was no different. The festivities have been ramping up all week, with Bill Belichick cracking a joke about Brady’s birthday present.

And then there was Rob Gronkowski, who made some whimsical observations about Brady getting up there in years.
