We all knew the details of Michael Floyd's DUI, but does actually seeing the video change any perception? Lou and Christian talk about potential backlash that the Patriots could face.
Lou and Christian settle into our brand new studio for the first time...and work out some kinks. Also, we hear the audio from Michael Floyd's DUI video and react to that.

TMZThis is blasphemy …

“It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” star Charlie Day is living a LIE … telling TMZ Sports he has no real love for the Philadelphia Eagles … and actually roots for the New England Patriots.

If you don’t watch ‘Sunny’ (you’re missing out, show’s hilarious) Day plays Charlie Kelly — a crazed Eagles fan whose love for the team often gets him into hijinks.

When we got the real-life actor out in L.A. he revealed to us that it’s all a goof … and not only does he not root for the Eagles … he actually sides with the evilest of all football empires.

Is nothing real anymore?

It actually makes a lot of sense that Charlie Day is a Patriots fan because he grew up in Rhode Island and went to Merrimack College. Plus, Charlie Day and Charlie Kelly have very little in common except their name (I’m hoping).

What does NOT make sense is what TMZ has to say about the Patriots. If they replace “evilest” with “winningest” this would make a lot more sense.

NECNA lawyer for Aaron Hernandez suggested Tuesday that Russian hackers could have been responsible for accessing the former New England Patriots star’s jailhouse phone calls.

“It could be a Russian hacker, with all respect, like WikiLeaks, who was able to backdoor into the system,” attorney George Leontire said during a pretrial hearing. “We don’t know.” 

Much of the discussion at Tuesday’s hearing in Suffolk County Superior Court centered around Securus Technologies, a Dallas-based company that allowed an unknown person to access Hernandez’s jailhouse phone calls as he was awaiting his first murder trial.

Specifically, Hernandez’s legal team expressed concern that attorney-client communications may have been improperly accessed.

“We know these phones were hacked. We still don’t know who hacked them,” Leontire said.

The unauthorized access into a telephone database operated by Securus occurred during the summer of 2014, shortly after Hernandez was transferred to Boston to be closer to his attorneys who were representing him in the Bristol County murder of former semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandez has filed a lawsuit against Securus.

Nice try, Aaron Hernandez’ lawyers.

They don’t know who hacked the phone but it had to have been Russians. It’s very en vogue right now to blame Russian hackers for things and these lawyers couldn’t waste this opportunity to jump on the trend.

This hacking is very unfair to Hernandez, let him go.

AROUND THE WEB:

— Aaron Hernandez returned to Suffolk County Superior Court on Tuesday for a pretrial hearing before his second murder trial and was identified by the survivor of a deadly 2012 drive-by shooting in Boston as the shooter in that incident.

Raychides Sanches, who was in a car he claims Hernandez targeted in the South End, said he was the passenger in a car that was stopped at a light when an SUV pulled up next to the car. He said someone in the SUV rolled down his window and said, “What’s up, negroes?” and started shooting.

According to Sanches, the bullets hit 29-year-old Daniel de Abreu and 28-year-old Safiro Furtado.

When asked in court who the shooter was, Sanches nodded at Hernandez and said, “Looked like him. Hernandez.”

Hernandez is facing two counts of murder in the deaths of Furtado and de Abreu. He already is serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

Jury selection for this trial is set to begin on Feb. 13.

— During his media availability on Tuesday, Richard Sherman was caught on tape threatening to ruin the career of a Seattle radio host.

The exchange between Sherman and local radio host Jim Moore began when Moore asked Sherman about Sherman’s criticism of the Seahawks’ play calling during the game on Thursday, asking him if he thinks he had a “better handle” on the play calling than the coaching staff.

“No, I just had a, we had a prior experience [the Super Bowl] so we talked about it,” Sherman responded. “But let me guess — you have a better play to call. Let me guess, you have a better experience.”

Moore said no and Sherman said,“Then you should probably kind of stop.”

When Sherman was leaving the press room, he passed by Moore’s chair and said,“You don’t want to go there. You do not. I’ll ruin your career.”

After the exchange, Sherman tweeted a semi-apology for what he said.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I did speak to him. He was very understanding, thankful. I thanked him for everything he did in the organization while with us. … Enjoyed his time here. He thought maybe it also was a spot where he gets a change of scenery, fresh opportunity. Not always a bad thing, as he mentioned. And that was basically it.” — Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski, on Clay Buchholz after trading him to the Phillies on Tuesday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Freddy Sanchez (39)
