In a recent column, ESPN public editor Jim Brady said he thinks it’s acceptable for media personalities to fire back at folks on Twitter. He’s taking his own advice.

Following a discussion on Kirk & Callahan Wednesday about his piece, which features interviews with ESPN personalities about their approaches to social media and political commentary, several listeners messaged Brady with their complaints about the story. Most notably, Brady failed to admonish hosts who have insinuated Boston is a racist city, such as Bomani Jones and Israel Gutierrez. After Celtics fans briefly applauded potential free agent forward Gordon Hayward before tip-off when the Jazz visited the T.D. Garden last month, Jones strongly hinted on “Highly Questionable” that race played a role in the warm reception.

“Is there another arena in the whole country that would get this charged about Gordon Hayward maybe coming as a free agent?,” he asked. “Clapping for Kevin Durant is one thing. But if you put Gordon Hayward on the same level as Kevin Durant, you might be the city that had the Kevin Love welcoming tour when he wasn’t even a free agent yet.”

Israel Gutierrez followed up on Around the Horn, saying the Celtics are “famous for having Larry Bird on their team.”

After failing to respond to an invitation to join K&C, Brady took his fight to the Twittersphere.

Even though the article was about ESPN’s social media policy, it failed to mention Curt Schilling, the most high-profile employee who’s ever been terminated for his behavior on the Internet. On Twitter, Brady said he omitted Schilling because the right-hander was a multiple time offender. He was suspended in 2015 for comparing radical Muslim jihadism to Nazism, roughly seven months before he was canned for sharing an anti-transgender picture on Facebook.

Perhaps the most puzzling line in the piece came when Brady was introducing Jones, who he says is “never shy at [sic] mixing it up with fans or with critics.” That characterization contradicts the accounts of dozens of Boston sports fans who Jones has blocked on Twitter. He also refused to come on WEEI last month to further explain his point.

This isn’t the first time the public editor has mixed it up with WEEI personalities and listeners. Earlier this year, after Brady declined a request to join the station to discuss Jones’ inflammatory comments, Kirk Minihane called him a “coward.” He responded by calling Minihane a “clown.”

Sometimes, it’s not enough to wear your favorite players’ jersey. You must get his face tattooed on your rear end.

That’s what one Patriots fan did last week before the championship parade, which drew more than 1 million people to the streets of Boston. Before the festivities began, he decided to stop by Boston Barber & Tattoo Co. on Salem Street and get Tom Brady’s mug branded where the sun don’t shine.

In a phone call with WEEI.com, an employee at the tattoo parlor said several Patriots fans came by for some ink during the parade last week. In addition to the butt tattoo, two other patrons got some Patriots-related artwork on their lips.

New England fans have a history of sporting unusual ink. Prior to Super Bowl XLII, Victor Thompson, a resident of Laconia N.H., decided to get the Patriots’ logo tattooed on both sides of his head –– much like a football helmet. The 47-year-old passed away last year.

The Score The Arizona Wildcats may be dealing with a few different faces this season.

With pitchers and catchers beginning to report to spring training across MLB this week, the Pac-12 conference baseball side decided to channel their best “Major League” impressions for the occasion Tuesday with a reenactment of the film’s most memorable scenes.

As the video’s caption points out, the Wildcats’ home diamond is Hi Corbett Field, formerly the spring training home of the Cleveland Indians and back drop of the 1989 baseball film, which explains the spot-on parody.

Good effort, but I wouldn’t call this spot-on. The coach’s voice is a pretty accurate impression and they even used a Mercedes in the recreation. But the Wildcats are not No. 1 in the Pac-12 for their acting skills. When the guy playing Willy Mays Hayes says he’s going to put on a hitting clinic, I do not believe him.

And check out the player at the end of the Wildcats’ version on the right during the sprint. He clearly unbuttoned the top half of his jersey for the camera.
