Tom Brady was easy to spot at the World Cup final in Brazil on Sunday. The Pats QB posed for photos with wife Gisele Bundchen and retired Spanish soccer star Carles Puyol (both of whom unveiled the trophy before the game), as well as Puyol’s model girlfriend Vanessa Lorenzo and FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke. Brady was also seen chatting with Ashton Kutcher, one of the many celebs in the crowd. We have to wonder what they could have been talking about. . . . One famous soccer fan, “Eat, Pray, Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert, happened to have an event with Brookline Booksmith at the Coolidge Corner Theatre at 2 p.m. Sunday to promote her latest release, “The Signature of All Things.” She tweeted before the game, “My book event today in Boston conflicts with #WorldCup Final. I never would’ve become a writer if I’d seen this coming . . .” She wound up catching the end of the match at the airport.
