Happy Humpday! Hope those of you who've gone out for a bite and beverage with outdoor dining back in The Bay State have kept it under control.

BROADCAST HIGHLIGHT

2019: Houston Texans @ Kansas City Chiefs - 8 p.m., NFL Network

Before the Chiefs lead an epic comeback vs the Texans in the AFC Divisional Round last January there was another wild showdown between two of the AFC's best young QBs at Arrowhead last season. Absolutely worth a rewatch.

BRADY LEADS PATS ONCE AGAIN

Devin McCourty was honored Tuesday evening for the charitable work he does with Boston Uncornered, an organization that is "a Boston nonprofit poised to be a national model for using education to end systemic generational urban poverty and violence through its Uncornered solution." It's no surprise to see McCourty, a leader in his locker room for a decade, involved in his commuity as well. The surprises came Tuesday night in the form of special guests to the virtual fundraiser hosted by Andrea Kramer. Like when D-Mac received a heaping load of praise from a former teammate who he practiced against and learned from for years ...

Brady was rather complimentary in his words for McCourty, who also received visits, shoutouts, praise and donations from former teammates like James White, Matthew SLater and Kyle Van Noy. Plus a sizeable donation of $100,000 from Patriots owner Robert Kraft. And a speech from his coach, who we've learned has been rather active in recent day in terms of racial sensitivity, understanding, education and compassion with his team.

D-Mac continues to be the leader the Patriots need now more than ever. To read more about Boston Uncornered and what they do, click HERE. Or watch a feature on them from CBS This Morning HERE.

BUBBA IN THE PACE CAR

Popular NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace will debut a special paint scheme on his car Wednesday night at Martinsville Speedway to honor Black Livees Mastters, which drew raves from one of professional sports' most vocal protestors.

BECAUSE WE NEED THIS

With many businesses and recreational outlets opening up locally in Phase 2, and across the country, a gentle reminder that some places are even more...well, they are what they are. And this could be the most surreal tourism board ad of all-time.

Hardly what Mikey and the gang had in mind 23 years ago.

DID YOU REALIZE ...

There are three quarterbacks from the 2007 Michigan State class IN the NFL, let alone competing for a starting job this fall. Including one right here in New England. Mind BLOWN. Now, wait until you read how much they'll have made by the time their current contracts expire. Go Sparty!
