NFL Lockout?! No problem for some


NFL Lockout?! No problem for some

By Jon Fucile

With the NFLs current Collective Bargaining Agreement sent to expire Thursday March 3rd and no indication players and owners are any closer to a new agreement, a lockout seems like a reasonable possibility.

That basically means that come July when hockey and basketball are done, instead of thinking about heading down to Foxboro to watch Patriots mini-camps, youll be watching baseball and thinking about how bored you are.

Fear not, citizens! If a lock out does indeed happen and your favorite NFL players are not playing football every week, youll still be able to see them if you look in the right places.

Several players already have agreements in place that would see them either star in movies, promote products they love or just get their face seen around town. We managed to dig up a couple of these potential deals just for you! Enjoy!

Tom Brady has decided to embrace his awful decision and just become an official spokesperson for Uggs.

Since Peyton Manning endorses every product ever made in the history of man, he decided to get his brother in on the fun and the two have agreed to become the new Double Mint Twins.

With Tiger Woods in trouble and quite frankly stinking up any golf course he plays on, EA needed a new face for their successful golf video game so they turned to a man who has plenty of practice not playing important games and working on his golf swing.

Chad Henne looked into his future and decided to get a head start. Hes an awful quarterback.

Ray Lewis agreed to take a part in an upcoming movie if theres a lock out. Thanks to those terrible Old Spice commercials, some Hollywood executives thought hed be perfect as Dr. Dolittle.

Antonio Cromartie has a deal in place with a popular company as a shining example of what happens when you say we dont have to use one this one time! Except he said that about 12 times. Whoops.

Everyones favorite chatty coach Bill Belichick has a potential agreement to be a spokesperson for Dragon Naturally Speaking Software. Should help reporters get easy cliff notes of his press conferences.

Ben Roethlisberger will be. You know what? Hes just too easy.

New photos show Sandoval has lost weight


New photos show Sandoval has lost weight

The last time a bunch of pictures of Pablo Sandoval made headlines, it was not a good sign for the Red Sox. The latest batch isn’t so bad. 

Sandoval became the story of spring training this season when photos -- specifically a Boston Globe one of him throwing -- revealed he’d gained significant weight. The veteran third baseman was surpassed by Travis Shaw for the starting job and began the season as a bench player. 

After three regular-season games, Sandoval was put on the disabled list with a shoulder strain. He was then shut down for the season in May due to shoulder surgery. 

In a tweet and story posted by FC Barcelona, a smiling -- and noticeably thinner -- Sandoval could be seen attending the club’s final training session. 

Sandoval, 30, is entering the third season of a five-year, $95 million contract. In his lone full season in Boston, 2015, Sandoval hit .245/.292/.366 with 10 homers and 47 RBI.

Obama’s Super Bowl pick: Patriots over Seahawks, again


Obama’s Super Bowl pick: Patriots over Seahawks, again

Tom Brady didn’t go to the White House after the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory over the Seahawks, but the President thinks the Pats will be visiting 1600 Pensylvania Ave. again to be welcomed by President Trump (does that mean Brady goes?) or Clinton in the spring of 2017.

In an interview on Sirus/XM Radio with Sway Calloway, Obama sees a Pats-Seahawks rematch in Super Bowl 51. And if he were a betting man, he’d be going with New England, again. 

“I’ve got to say at this point, you have to put your money on Brady again,” Obama said. “I don’t see any strong teams. Seattle and Patriots have a rematch. That’s my call.”

Obama and the nation will get a preview of his pick on Week 10 at Gillette Stadium when the Pats host the Seahawks.

Oh, and the President likes the Golden State Warriors, particularly with the addition of Kevin Durant, to reclaim the NBA title.
