Things more painful to watch than the Bruins

In a lot of ways this Bruins-Habs series is harder on the Bruins fans soul than the Flyers debacle last year.

Maybe its because its happening against the Canadiens. Maybe its because the Bruins are looking flatter than week old soda. Maybe its cause the Tin Man has shown more heart than this years Bruins squad. Whatever the reason is, watching the Bruins playing like drunken frat boys on the ice is absolutely excruciating to watch.

So it got us thinking whats not good but still less excruciating to watch than the Boston Bruins?

Three Minutes of Fame
In a lot of ways, the Three Minutes of Fame mini-game between periods at the Garden looks a lot like how the Bruins are playing hockey no real strategy, everyone playing tackle the guy with the puck, horrid passing.

Only difference is these kids are like eight and arent getting paid boatloads of cash. Theyre also showing more hustle.

Whatever the hell this is:

Question: Did Roosevelt run this race with a bullet in his chest?

The Boston Red Sox
And thats saying something since the Sox arent exactly lighting it up with highlights this year either. They just put together their first winning streak of back-to-back games. Yknow what? They still have more wins this week than the Bs.

Shaq playing for the Celtics
Statler and Waldorf say it best.

Every Friday parody out there
Seriously. The song sucked. The parodies are even worse. Just let it go people. Let it go.

Giving birth
The video we all saw in eighth grade was awkward and uncomfortable as hell. The real-deal isnt much better.

The Boston Marathon
Nothing says Im a lazy buggar like watching other people run while drinking copious amounts of beer. And watching someone poop themselves while running on live TV? Still less painful than the Bruins powerplay.

Lets hope the Bruins show some pride out there tonight. Ugh.

Brady, Harbaugh found common ground on plane ride back from Michigan

Brady, Harbaugh found common ground on plane ride back from Michigan

FOXBORO -- What could have been an awkward plane ride for Tom Brady and John Harbaugh was made less so thanks to a high school lacrosse player. 

Brady and Harbaugh shared a private plane back from Michigan where Jim Harbaugh and his University of Michigan program put on an event for National Signing Day. About a year earlier, Brady told a room full of reporters that Harbaugh and his coaching staff should study the rule book and "figure it out" after hearing that they were pretty upset about the unusual formations the Patriots ran during their AFC Divisional Round win over Baltimore. 

They may not have been on the best of terms.

"I was pissed off," he told ESPN's Ian O'Connor before the start of this season. "It was uncalled for. And the rules are deeper than that, and I know the rules, and I stand by why that play shouldn't have been allowed. ... So yeah, that should never have been said."

But on the flight was Harbaugh's daughter Alison, a high school lacrosse player. When Brady took some time to share a few thoughts on competitiveness with her, he and Harbaugh found common ground.

"We had a lot of fun," Harbaugh said of the flight. "I don't know if he's talked about that at all, but we ended up sharing a plane ride along with my daughter and a couple of his people, friends of his. We just had a chance to just talk for a couple hours. And really more than anything, Alison got a chance to listen to Tom Brady talk about competing and what it takes to be great at what you do.

"And one of the funny things about it was, he was so nice to her. He gets off and they go, and we get back on the plane and we're talking, and she says something like, 'Boy, Tom really is a nice guy.' And I look at here and go, 'Tom?' I'm thinking 'Mr. Brady' would have been more appropriate. She said, 'He said to call me Tom.' I got a kick out of that.

"It was good. Lot of respect for him and a lot of respect for what he's accomplished. He's very tough to compete against. The best quarterback that's played, certainly in this era, without question in my mind. That's how I would rank him. And it's just another tough challenge to have to play against him."
