Donald Trump spends night before inauguration talking Bob Kraft, taking calls from Tom Brady 01.19.17 at 9:36 pm ET
By   |  Comments Off on Donald Trump spends night before inauguration talking Bob Kraft, taking calls from Tom Brady

How did President-Elect Donald Trump spend the night before being inducted into office? Taking calls from Tom Brady, of course.

“He’s got a great quarterback named Tom Brady, and a great coach named [Bill} Belichick, Bob Kraft. So good luck, Bob. Your friend Tom just called, he feels good. He called to congratulate us, he feels good. Good luck. Your going to do great things.”

And the Patriots love at the dinner celebrating campaign donors didn’t stop there …

“I outworked everybody, I think I outworked anyone who ever ran for office. I learned that from Belichick.”

Earlier in the day, Kraft was quoted in the New York Times as saying we should look forward to the Trump presidency.

“Loyalty is important to me, and he has been a wonderful friend,” Kraft said. “I think one of the great problems in the country today is the working poor, the middle class, that there hasn’t been growth in income on an equal basis, and I really think the policies he’s going to bring to bear are going to be great for the economic side of America.”

Barstool Sports’ David Portnoy compares Roger Goodell going to Foxboro with Hitler visiting Israel 01.11.17 at 9:25 am ET

El Presidente’s stance is pretty clear.

After being the topic of conversation over the last 24 hours for the insinuation that he would wish bodily harm on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Barstool Sports’ David Portnoy went on the Kirk & Callahan Show Wednesday to clarify his stance (listen to the interview here).

“I would like him to come [to Gillette Stadium],” Portnoy said. “If somebody tripped him, he fell down and he broke his arm, I would laugh. I’m glad that happened. I would not be the tripper. I do not condone murder. I do condone spitting on him. I think you can spit on him fairly.”

Portnoy also explained he can understand Goodell’s hesitation to come to Foxboro considering the commish’s status in New England.

“It should be risky and I don’t think it’s because of anything I said or what anybody else has said. It’s because what that jerk has done,” Portnoy said. “You make your bed and you sleep in it. We’re responding to him. That’s like Hitler killed a bazzalion Jews and he goes to Israel and they thought it would be a great spot for him.”

So will Goodell show up? Portnoy said you shouldn’t be holding your breath.

“No chance,” he stated. “Not maybe ever. Maybe in like 20 years, but not now.”

When is the next time Roger Goodell shows his face in Foxboro?

Rob Gronkowski makes 300-pound pal ride bull, doesn’t work out well 01.09.17 at 3:01 pm ET
By   |  Comments Off on Rob Gronkowski makes 300-pound pal ride bull, doesn’t work out well

At least Gronk wasn’t on the bull.

That was the first thought that must have gone through anybody’s mind the minute they see video of Rob Gronkowski watch his 300-pound best buddy, “Bobby Goons,” — who is the tight end’s contractor/chauffeur — get on the 1,200-pound bull named “Lieutenant Dan.”

(To watch the video on TMZ Sports, click here.)

The endeavor, which took place at the Monster Energy Buck Off in New York City this weekend, lasted just one about second. Gronk attempted to get his friend back on the bull in an attempt to beat the performance of former Patriot Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson.

Isaiah Thomas celebrates 52-point game by smelling LeGarrette Blount’s sweatshirt 12.31.16 at 11:13 am ET

It’s not every day that you score 52 points, hit nine three-points and come two points shy of tying Wilt Chamberlain’s NBA record for most fourth-quarter points (31).

So, when you accomplish all of that, like Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas managed Friday night, you are going to get the celebrity treatment. In this case, it came from Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount, who was attending the C’s win over Miami with fellow Pats running back James White.

While we don’t know what words of wisdom were passed along, we do know that Thomas really, really likes the smell of Blount’s sweatshirt.

Rob Gronkowski has unique powers. We have come to understand that, both on and off the field.

But, thanks to a video of a young fan’s reaction after receiving a signed jersey from the Patriots’ tight end, we now may have the next big celebratory verbal spike: “Oh my banana swirl!”

(To view Instragram post, click here.)

We can’t confirm or deny that the folks at The Clam Bake restaurant in Fort Myers, Fla. had a similar reaction upon receiving Gronk’s greeting to the “Claim Bake” on their own autographed jersey …

SNL uses Donald Trump news to take another ‘Deflategate’ shot at Patriots 12.18.16 at 8:36 am ET
By   |  Comments Off on SNL uses Donald Trump news to take another ‘Deflategate’ shot at Patriots

Deflategate and Donald Trump are the gifts that keep on giving for Saturday Night Live.

Saturday night the weekly show used a combination of both the President-elect and the controversy involving the Patriots to get a laugh, with “Weekend Update” co-host Michael Che introducing the news item involving Russia reportedly helping Trump with the election thanks to some strategic hacking. (See at :35 of the video posted below.)

“Who snitches when somebody cheats for them. That’s just ungrateful,” Che said. “You don’t expect Tom Brady to tell the ref, ‘Hey, let me try that touchdown pass again. The ball was deflated.’ I guess Donald Trump was just acting like a Patriot.”

Needham’s Aly Raisman, an Olympic gold-medal gymnast, has finally admitted that she’s dating NFL practice squadder Colton Underwood.

The duo met after Underwood posted a viral video asking Raisman out in August. The pair, who walked the red carpet together at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year event on Monday night, had their first date in Denver that month, Raisman told People Magazine.

Underwood, who was cut from the Raiders’ practice squad this year, is currently a free agent. Raisman said they “kept it quiet for a while,” but now they’re going public.

Raisman, 22, is a Needham native and two-time Olympian who won gold in the team competition at London in 2012 and Rio earlier this year. She has also added a gold, three silvers, and a bronze in individual competition.

Underwood, 24, has spent parts of three seasons on four different practice squads, but has yet to appear in an NFL game.
