We can all learn from The LeBrons

That pompous, arrogant, egotistical idiot Lebron James is at it again. He took a break from not winning championships and bailing on his old team to run to a place where he thought he could win without working and decided to start a cartoon about his favorite subject....himself.

The show even opens with a super awesome rap song that definitely isn't boastful or self absorbed. Nope, not one bit.

Basically Lebron just wanted to teach kids some lessons. Hard work is for suckers. Holding hour long specials on ESPN just to stroke your ego before you pick a team is really cool. Throwing everyone but yourself under the bus when things don't go your way is okay too. You know, valuable life lessons that every kid should know.

Basically The Lebrons shows four different versions of Lebron that teach you life lessons you can't learn anywhere else. This week The Lebrons teach you that "two wrongs don't make a right."

Apparently a pit bull is causing some trouble so The Lebrons buy a lion to kill the pitbull.

But in the end they decide that killing the pitbull just isn't right and that is when we learn that two wrongs don't make a right. Heart warming. Now we regret all those times we bought lions from our local pet stores to take care of those pesky neighborhood pitbulls.

Really the whole episode is just chock full of life lessons. Even the intro. Just look at all the lessons you learn just from the character introductions.

Kid Lebron teaches us that even if it is warm outside you should still wear a hooded sweatshirt and vest. Remember kids, always keep warm. You think your mom is just nagging you but you never know when an Antarctic cold front will move in.

Also be sure to always wear a hat, backpack and headphones when you're bursting into everyone's room in your house. Remember what Kid Lebron does....never ever knock before you enter a room.

Athlete Lebron teaches us that as long as you get a bunch of dumbass tats that make no sense and win a bunch of middle school basketball trophies you can live at home with your parents forever!

Look at Athlete Lebron sitting in his room lifting weights like some creepy high school virgin who thinks pumping up his arms will get him a prom date that isn't his sister. Put down the dumbbell, get a job and move out of your parents house. You're a bum Athlete Lebron.

Business Lebron teaches us to be really, really full of ourselves and hire a local barber to come to our house to cut what appears to be a beret on our heads just to show we have money. Also, always wear sunglasses indoors so people can't see the look of selfishness and NBA failure in your eyes.

Business Lebron might just suck the most.

Wise Lebron teaches us to practice safe shaving and wear a hat while Kid Lebron teaches us it is okay to kick open a bathroom door and try to scare old people in their underwear and steal their aftershave. Seriously. What if Wise Lebron was pooping.

What a jerk this Kid Lebron is. No respect. Seems more and more like real life Lebron. Though there certainly isn't a real life Wise Lebron and this show proves it.

On the plus side for Lebron James...he now has more stupid cartoon series about himself than the Red Sox have wins. Yup, totally went there.

Does Brady have words planned for Goodell at Super Bowl? 'We'll see'

Does Brady have words planned for Goodell at Super Bowl? 'We'll see'

Tom Brady wouldn't take the bait following the AFC title game. He was told that he must've heard the "Where's Roger?" chants, and so then he must've had a reaction.

"I didn't hear that chant," Brady replied. 

WEEI's Kirk and Callahan Show took another run at the Patriots quarterback's relatonship with commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday morning. Had Brady thought about what he might say should he come face-to-face with Goodell at Super Bowl LI?

"Hopefully we’ll finish the deal," Brady said. "Hopefully we can finish it off, and we’ll see. Maybe I’ll tell you after. But I don’t want to get into winning something before we’ve won it, because it’s going to be hard to win this thing."

Should the Patriots win their fifth Super Bowl title, Brady probably won't be accepting the Lombardi Trophy from Goodell. That exchange usually takes place with the owner at center stage. Perhaps there's a scenario in which Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft allows Brady to take the stage first, but it would go against what has been Super Bowl protocol. 

Brady and Goodell could be forced to share the spotlight on the morning after the Super Bowl, however, when the MVP trophy is handed out. It's a ritual they carried out together on the morning following Super Bowl XLIX, when Deflategate was in its nascent stages.

One would think that the embrace they shared that day -- long before the Wells Report was published and long before Brady and the league were pitted against one another in federal court -- will be the last thing that either man wants to recreate two weeks from now. 

Brady on the effectiveness of Belichick's approach: 'You're brainwashed'

Brady on the effectiveness of Belichick's approach: 'You're brainwashed'

During his weekly interview with WEEI's Kirk and Callahan Show, Tom Brady highlighted the thought process that has helped make the Patriots such a successful team under Bill Belichick, and in the process of complimenting his boss, Brady also may have taken an inadvertent shot at the Steelers.

As broadcat to the world via Antonio Brown's Facebook feed, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin noted immediately after the Divisional Round that the Patriots had an advantage in preparing for the AFC title game because they had more time to rest.

"I would say in general on our team we have a sign on our wall that says, ‘Doing the right thing for the team when it might not be the right thing for you.’ That’s just putting everything aside," Brady said. "Ignoring the noise, the positive things people may be saying about you, or the negative things people may say about you. Just believing in yourself and not making excuses.

"There’s always an excuse you can build into why you lose a game. 'We’re only playing on six days rest, we have this person hurt, or we didn’t get that call.' There are a million of them, and they’re all built in and you can pick them all off before the game. I think our coach does a great job of never buying into the B.S. He never makes it about one player. He never makes it about one play. He never makes it about one call, or one situation. It’s all about all of us collectively trying to do the best thing we can for the team to try and help us win. He never lets his foot off the gas pedal so when it comes to our team, you’re brainwashed. That’s just the way it goes."

The numbers support Belichick's approach: He'll be coaching in a 10th Super Bowl in two weeks, and seven of those have come as a head coach. Both are NFL records.
