Tom Brady in a body cast? April Fools!

April Fool’s Day jokes can be so cruel. None more than the one played upon Patriots fans Wednesday by QB Tom Brady, who posted a picture of himself on Facebook in a full-body cast. “Jordan’s crossover is no joke,” read the caption, a reference to Brady’s friendly pickup basketball game with NBA great Michael Jordan in the Bahamas over the weekend. (In the photo, Jordan’s John Hancock is on the cast.) But rest easy, Pats fans: Brady escaped the game unscathed. . . . Meanwhile, TB12 is set to shoot his latest commercial for UGG Thursday, and it’s happening somewhere in Boston. (Our bet is Brookline.) The luxury shoe brand e-mailed just about everyone at the Globe Wednesday
to say that the shoot will be livestreamed. Check out @uggaustralia on Twitter for details. The ad is being directed by Joe Carnahan, who’s perhaps best known for 2002’s “Narc.”
