On Ochocinco and Bruschi

Let's keep this short and sweet.

Chad Ochocinco tweeted this:

Former Patriots linebacker and fan-favorite Tedy Bruschi responded with this on WEEI:

"Close your mouth. Put your hand under your chin and close your jaw. Then open your eyes and watch some film. That's what you need to do. If you're still in awe, that means you don't get it because you don't understand it."

While everyone wants to point fingers at Bruschi or Ochocinco, talk about the "Patriot Way" and what Bill Belichick will or won't stand for, the true message should be this:

The Jets are not in awe of Tom Brady; they aren't in awe of the Patriots. In no way does it help New England for one of its players to be awestruck by their performance. That's when you start seeing men in green and white with outstretched arms, pretending to fly like a bunch of five year olds.

Segura's single in 13th rallies Mariners past Red Sox, 6-5

SEATTLE - Jean Segura rolled an RBI single up the middle with two outs in the 13th inning to cap a two-run rally and give the Seattle Mariners a 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox in a game that ended early Wednesday morning.

Mitch Haniger walked with one out in the 13th off Doug Fister (0-5), pitching his third inning, and was forced at second on Ben Gamel's fielder's choice. Guillermo Heredia, who had a three-run homer in the second, singled Gamel to third. Gamel scored on a wild pitch to tie it, with Heredia advancing all the way to third. Mike Zunino then walked. Shortstop Xander Bogaerts fielded Segura's roller behind second, but his off-balance throw was way late.

The Red Sox, who stranded two runners in the eighth, ninth and 11th innings, had taken a 5-4 lead in the top half when Sandy Leon singled home Hanley Ramirez with two outs off Tony Zych (5-2).

Mike Zunino opened the seventh inning with his 15th home run to bring Seattle even at 4-4.
