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.

Davis' 52 points breaks Chamberlain's All-Star record, West beats East, 192-182

Davis' 52 points breaks Chamberlain's All-Star record, West beats East, 192-182

NEW ORLEANS – The stars were everywhere, on and off the court during the 66th annual NBA All-Star game.

There were lots of hugs, handshakes and goody-good vibes shared by all.

And then … the fourth quarter arrived.

It’s the only time of the game when the All-Star game actually looks like a game and not an open gym full of the best players on the planet.

And as we’ve seen this season, no one is better in the fourth quarter than Boston’s Isaiah Thomas.

True to form, Thomas saw a playing time in the fourth quarter.

But his scoring prowess wasn’t enough with the Western Conference emerging with a 192-182 win.  It is the sixth time in the last seven All-Star games that the West has come away with the victory.

Thomas had 20 points on 7-for-15 shooting and 4-for-10 from 3-point range.

That’s not a bad performance, but there were others who were a lot more prolific shooting the ball.

Kevin Durant, playing in his first All-Star game as a member of the Golden State Warriors, had a triple-double of 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, MVP each of the previous two All-Star games, finished with 41 points – one shy of tying the most points scored in an All-Star game.

Despite Westbrook’s monster game, the record wound up being shattered by New Orleans’ Anthony Davis who had 52 points which broke Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star game record of 42 points set in 1962.

Shooting 26 for 39 from the field, Davis also grabbed 10 rebounds.

One of the more interesting stretches came in the first half between Thomas and Westbrook.

Westbrook grabbed an offensive rebound, saw that he was being guarded by Thomas and snarled at him moments before banking in a 3-pointer.

Thomas wasn’t about to be showed up by his fellow All-Star.

On the ensuing possession, he came right back and hit a long range 3-pointer in Russell’s mug. Westbrook came back with a 3-pointer that was off the mark followed by a Thomas miss.

That sequence was about as close as we came to seeming some semblance of defense played by either team, with lay-ups, and wide open dunks reigning supreme all night.

The much-talked about “reunion” between Durant and Westbrook was very civil, one that included the two connecting on a give-and-go in the first half that ended with a Westbrook basket.

Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo gave the crowd better dunks in the All-Star game than the actual slam dunk contest, finishing with 30 points on 14-of-17 with 12 dunks.
