Yes, it was painful to watch the Patriots get manhandled by the Ravens and be denied what seemed like a certain trip to the Super Bowl in New Orleans. But don’t feel too too bad for Tom Brady. The QB and his supermodel spouse, Gisele Bundchen, will be spending the offseason in splendid style. Work is finally done on the couple’s monstrous LA mansion, which reportedly cost $20 million to build in the exclusive, celeb-heavy neighborhood of Brentwood. (Heidi Klum and Arnold Schwarzenegger live nearby.) Recent photos taken from the air show a lavish, 22,000-square-foot spread with a covered bridge, lagoon-shaped pool, and roofs that appear to be at least partially solar-paneled. (Gi describes herself as as environmentalist.) The couple, who have two children — Brady also has a son, Jack, from his relationship with Bridget Moynahan — bought the 3.75-acre property in 2008 and then had the house built.
