Know how sometimes it seems like the Patriots are holding something back? Might've noticed it in the build-up to the playoff loss to the Jets.
Turns out Patriots are people, too. The above outtakes from Tom E. Curran's weekly Quick Slants luncheon with linebacker Jerod Mayo are the pudding . . . get it? The proof is in the . . .
OK, on to the highlights, in chronological order:
"THE MOST FLIES EVER!"
". . . on the football field . . ."
"What you got, makeup on or something? ... Like you're supposed to be in the casket."
"I got a bad elbow!"
"Is that Bobbi Brown?!"
"Alright. I hope you get it."
Most of those make no sense unless you've watched the video. So get on that.
Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while spring training is ramping up in a big way down in Florida.
*The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to wear their great, green, old school St. Pat’s sweaters around St. Patrick’s Day this season.
*Jonathan Quick is on the ice and participating in hockey activity, but isn’t quite ready to return for the Los Angeles Kings.
*This is one of the best things you’ll see today with Vladimir Tarasenko making the 11th birthday celebration for a special little girl.
*The Edmonton Oilers could potentially make a lot of moves at the NHL trade deadline, and unsurprisingly, there is quite the call for them to dump Benoit Pouliot after that bad contract they signed him to a couple of years ago.
*Lyle Richardson is predicting the biggest buyers at the 2017 NHL trade deadline and the Bruins are not among the nine teams listed.
*FOH (Friend of Haggs) James Mirtle goes 1-on-1 with Toronto Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello a wide range of subjects for the Athletic up in Toronto.
*Tommy Wingels continues to fight for inclusion in hockey even as he’s gone from the San Jose Sharks to the Ottawa Senators this season.
*For something completely different: A perfect pool trick shot video will blow your mind and probably get a few pool tables ruined with people trying to recreate it.
