Happy Tuesday. It's been 106 days since we have live major American sports. Not to mention 504 days since Boston's last duckboat parade. That reality got us feeling like...

BROADCAST HIGHLIGHT

Ford v Ferrari - HBO, 7:25pm

The local and national sports networks have seemingly exhausted the quality replays, so why not enjoy a movie with some sporting influence that was called one of the best dad movies in recent years? Then maybe catch a replay of the first episode of the new "Perry Mason" series after.

BEHIND THE SCENES OF BRADY & GRONK TO TAMPA

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers news program "In The Current" has perhaps become perhaps the No. 1 regular shame watch for Pats fans and New Englanders, surpassing any trashy reality show like "Outer Banks". And it's understandable, if not painful. The episodes are well-produced behind-the-scenes looks at the goings-on of the buzziest franchise in the NFL. A web-based news mag meets "Hard Knocks". And of course we can't help watching, considering the time we spent devoted to both Gronk and especially Brady. We don't let things go easily. That's how we New England. And in the latest episode we get a good look at how the Bucs successfully pursued Brady and Gronk, among other offseason highlights. Pats Diehard Discretion Advised. Rated FG for Freakin' Gross.

PATS MEME DU JOUR

Here's the latest Pats-centric version of one of the many memes that has made the rounds on social media this year. And this one's not an easy call. Because umm, also, Andre Tippett?

BECAUSE WE NEED THIS

Easily the greatest celebrity endorsement video for a Greek restaurant, if not any restaurnt, ever. Bucket List: Ja Rule reads me the menu at my favorite restaurant.

GET A CARVEL CAKE FOR...

Former Patriots safety Larry Whigham, a staple of the Bledsoe-era Patriots defense, who turns 48 years young today. And because YouTube of course there's a DIY about him for the Parcells & Carroll coached diehards.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Can you openly admit that you know the Earth is constitutionally round?”  --One of the dozens if not hundreds of bananas soundbites from the one and only Kyrie Irving, who was taken first overall in the 2011 NBA Draft to play on an Earth shaped a basketball, by the Cleveland Cavaliers, nine years ago today.
