Brady learns how to party

Youve heard the complaints before. It has been an ongoing for a few seasons now: Foxboro is too quiet.

Whether the Patriots are winning or losing the crowd at Foxboro is just as quiet as Rogers Arena in Vancouver after a Game Seven in the Stanley Cup finals.

The Patriots play the Chargers Sunday at 4:15pm and Tom Brady has a solution

GET DRUNK!

Brady apparently wants people to start drinking early so they are loud and ready to go by the time the Patriots take the field. Time to get rowdy, New England!

They say lead by example, though, and Brady is kind of a lame guy. He gets scared on water slides, he wears a pony tail like a 70year old hippie and he wears lady shoes. How can he encourage Patriots fans to party if he doesnt know how to party himself? As fate would have it, a chance encounter with the perfect teacher started him on the right path.

Brady was out walking one of his weird faced girlfriends dogs wearing his hideous UGGs.

That is when the one man party decided to literally slap some sense into Tom Brady.

After 45 minutes of intense sobbing, Brady BEGGED Brad Marchand to teach him how to party. Brad was too busy looking at his abs in the mirror and just said yes to get Tom to shut up.

Brad and a terrified Tom Brady took Brads scooter, a gift from Andrew Ference, downtown to get prepared. The scooter was faster than a water slide and Brady crapped his pants.

They set up training camp on Boston Common and quickly went to work. Marchand did his best to not only turn Brady into a man, but into one lean, mean party machine!

After Brad felt Tom could sufficiently hold his liquor they moved onto the most important aspect of partying. There aint no party like a no shirts party!

They partied with no shirts into the wee hours of the morning as media members around Boston made way too big of a deal about it. Apparently, professional athletes are not allowed to have good, clean, drunken, shirtless fun like the rest of us.

Brad even helped Tom make an inspirational commercial to encourage people to get down and funky. Marchand wanted to make sure the Foxboro crowd was super rowdy!

Brady was so pumped that he and Brad went straight to Foxboro to start partying. Theyre raging on in the parking lot. It is only a matter of time before the shirts come off. So be loud Sunday, Patriots fans. Dont make Brads lessons go to waste.

Saturday, June 25: No stress for No. 16 pick Chychrun

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while there’s a beautiful day going on outside in Buffalo.

*D-man Jakob Chychrun says that he wasn’t stressing dropping into the middle of the first round before the Arizona Coyotes picked him.

*It’s a great piece of video from Friday night’s first round as Tyson Jost’s grandpa became a sobbing, proud man when his grandson was taken early in the first round of the NHL Draft.

*PHT writer Joey Alfieri has Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin believing that Vancouver Canucks GM Jim Benning crossed the line by publicly expressing interest in P.K. Subban.  

*Evander Kane is being investigated on a couple of harassment claims in the Buffalo area, a tough development during NHL Draft weekend there.

*The Blue Jackets had the biggest surprise of the first round by drafting Pierre-Luc Dubois with the third overall pick in the first round. They must think he’s going to be a center long term.

*The Edmonton Oilers and Minnesota Wild are talking trade for a D-man, but none of the defensemen names moved on Friday night.

*For something completely different: Adam Kaufman gives his take on the draft night for the Celtics.

Bruins' D-man target Kulikov goes from Panthers to Sabres in trade

One of the Bruins' defenseman trade targets is off the market. 

Dmitry Kulikov was traded from Florida Panthers to the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. He was on Boston's list of usual suspects for D-men.

Buffalo traded defenseman Mark Pysyk and the 38th and 89th pick to Florida for the 25-year old Kulikov and pick No. 33.

The Bruins had discussed a Kulikov deal with the Panthers last week. 

 

Bruins plan to discuss re-signing Chris Kelly

Bruins plan to discuss re-signing Chris Kelly

BUFFALO – The Bruins might not quite be finished with the Chris Kelly era in Boston.

After the gritty, seasoned and defensive-minded forward played only 11 games last season due to a left femur fracture suffered in November, there was some question about his future with his contract up on July 1. The B’s have maintained a consistent interest in potentially bringing back the team leader if Kelly proved he was healthy enough to contribute and of course if the price was right for the 35-year-old.

Bruins GM Don Sweeney confirmed that Kelly now has a full bill of health seven months after the injury and that Sweeney planned to speak with the fourth-liner’s agent in the near future.

“I’m actually going to speak with Chris Kelly’s representative,” said Sweeney. “We had great news that he was physically and medically cleared, so we’re going to have a discussion with them in short order.”

While Kelly’s days of scoring 20 goals or playing big minutes as a third-line center might be behind him, he’s still a respected leader and gritty, tough penalty killer that sets a great example for the young players in the B’s dressing room. If Kelly is willing to sign for short term and something in the neighborhood of $1 million, he could be an acceptable fit as a fourth liner/13th forward on a Bruins team gearing more toward speed and youth with each passing month.

If not, then Kelly is more than likely one of those veteran players who might have to win an NHL job in training camp, given that he’s coming off a pretty major leg injury, and that the league is skewing more toward entry level contract players as fourth line/extra forwards.
