SideTrack: Tom Brady, Prince William, Mindy Kaling and more...
WELCOME BACK, BRADY: Tom Brady is back from his Costa Rican vacation with the fam and he’s ready to get back to business. TB12 posted an Instagram picture yesterday morning giving us a thumbs-up in his Aston Martin above a caption reading, “It feels so good to be baaaaaaaaack #trainingcamp #LETSGO.” And it’s good to have you back in Foxboro, Tommy.
TUNE IN: And now we know what New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman has on his DVR. No. 11 posted the Season 2 trailer of “Stranger Things” to Twitter, commenting, “well... this looks incredible #season2.”
WHAT’S IN A NAME? The world’s favorite couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, went on a tour of Poland and Germany last week with their children, the precious Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The next item on their docket: figuring out a last name for the newly 4-year-old George. Come September, the prince will be enrolled in school, and a surname is expected. Some royal watchers think he’ll go with one of two options: Mountbatten-Windsor — just like his grandmama, Queen Elizabeth II — or simply Cambridge, after his father and mother’s titles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
HOUSE CALL: OK, the backyard is teensy, but other than that, the 1929 Spanish Revival cottage that Cambridge native Mindy Kaling put up for sale in Los Angeles is a whopping 2,674 square feet of chic. It’s got four bedrooms, three bathrooms, exposed beams, yada, yada. But the coolest bit is the violet tile in one of the bathrooms. There’s also a bunch of paved courtyards and patios around the house, because that backyard is pretty dang small. Roll those quarters until you hit $2.195M and it’s yours.
