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.

Tuesday, Feb. 21: Leafs turning green

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.
