AROUND THE WEB:

-- Tom Brady might be bitter about some things, but it seems losing the Super Bowl isn’t one of them.

Brady congratulated LeGarrette Blount on his Eagles Super Bowl ring on Instagram after Blount posted a photo showing all three of his championship rings on Monday. Two of those rings he won with the Patriots and the other he won by beating the Patriots.

A post shared by LeGarrette Blount (@l_blount29) on

“Blessings,” Blount captioned the photo, along with three ring emojis.

To which Brady commented, “You have EARNED them my brother!”

-- Charles Barkley and his "Inside the NBA" cohosts went up against a team of former MLB stars on Celebrity Family Feud on Sunday and Barkley, of course, gave an all-time weird answer.

And it ended up being CORRECT.

Host Steve Harvey asked Barkley, “If a man’s zipper breaks at church, what might he use to cover it up?”

And Barkley’s answer was, “A child.”

Everyone freaked out and Ernie Johnson Jr. even switched teams.

“The man gonna get us locked up,” Shaquille O’Neal said. “Not a good answer. Put your hands behind your back. You’re under arrest.”

Barkley then made his answer worse by saying, “I meant a baby!”

“Then he tried to fix it!” said Harvey. “He said, ‘I meant a baby.’ Oh God, this is on YouTube. You know what’s crazy? It’s probably gonna be up there, though. Somebody’s child!”

And the board showed “Person” was an acceptable answer.

“I told you yes, ‘person’ sounds better,” Harvey said. “Child? Baby? Damn, Chuck."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "You’ll see a lot of guys throwing 100. You will rarely see a guy below 95. They are all probably raw. There’s a lot of raw pitching in the big leagues.” -- Pedro Martinez, with D&K, on changes in Major League Baseball since he has played
