Radio stations in Denver are dealing with an influx of Patriot fans calling in.

I am shocked that I can tolerate a video that involves the phrase “a car alarm.” In fact, like all of us I will go to great lengths to avoid anything that sounds like a car alarm. But this short, simple clip is pretty remarkable.

I say again, what is it about a good looking woman who can play a classical instrument? I guess I have to admit, it’s my “thing.” And as “things” go, I suppose that’s less creepy than most.

Thanks to Daniel B. for sending this along.

Have you come across a video you’d like to see posted? Send the link to your Afternoon Delight-worthy vid to me at jthornton@weei.com. If I use it I’ll make you sports radio station website Internet famous.

On this week’s “Unsportsmanlike Podcast” I’m joined once again by my authority for all things involving matters of gender, former WEEI intern-turned-emerging media star Lucy Burdge.

On this show, we catch up on each other’s holidays, explore Lucy’s dating situation, talk about what apps are currently popular for random hook ups and she schools me on use of the dreaded C-word.

Mostly though, she gives me a Cosmo quiz called “What Kind of Girl are You?” So if you’ve ever wondered that, or asked yourself who at the station Lucy has a crush on and whom I would date if I was a chick, give us a listen.

Enjoy.

So I’m the leader of Patriots Nation now? I accept. To be clear, I did not seek this position. Nor did I campaign for it. With all due respect to Fred Kirsch of Patriots Football Weekly, a publication I have subscribed to for many years, the people have spoken. And as Plato writes in The Republic, the ideal ruler is one who does not wish to rule. That way you know he isn’t seeking power to enrich himself and can be trusted to govern wisely.

The only issue now becomes what kind of leader I will be.

A Philosopher King in the Plato mold? Possibly, but that sounds like way too much book learning.

Maybe a God King, like Xerxes in “300”? I like the sound of that. But the whole slavery thing is a turnoff. And Leonidas was way cooler because his men would do anything for him. Right up until the time that “do anything for him” thing included dying horribly in a hail of arrows.

A despotic emperor type like Darth Sidious in “Star Wars?” Nope. Too murdery. And as much as I’d like lightning bolts to shoot out of my fingertips, I know I’d be using them on people who stand in the middle of the aisle at the supermarket.

Maybe a kindly, heroic Aragorn of Gondor type? There’s nothing not to like about that. But that’s not me. There’s only one model of a leader for me to emulate.

Bill Belichick. A benign despot. Kind to my subjects. Brutal to my enemies. A brilliant strategist who can see worldly events unfolding before they transpire. Someone who dispenses quick, brutal justice for wrongdoers and rewards those who do right. A man who does not suffer fools gladly. Who doesn’t care what the press says about him as long as his soldiers and his public adore him. A giant among men who believes loyalty is a two-way street. A iron fist in a grey-hooded sleeve with a Jersey rocker song in his heart and an old Paul Brown story on his lips.

That’s the kind of leader I’ll be. I humbly accept the position and will govern well. Now come the days of the king. All hail Jerry I.

Glenn, Lou and Christian take a look at how Brady fared vs. Denver the last time they played, when Brady lost all his weapons.
Pete Prisco, CBS, was on the morning show sharing his thoughts on Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Glenn, Lou and Christian discuss Prisco's comments.

The Internet can be a really strange place. Things that have been out there for a while will suddenly return for no apparent reason. That’s why your Facebook page will suddenly fill up with some Barack Obama birth story from like 2009 every other year or so. Things just surface like a whale coming up for air.

Consider this video. It was actually posted back in May. As a matter of fact, I’m 90 percent sure I wrote about it when it came out. But in that odd interweb way, it’s come back with a fury this week, popping up on Twitter, being sent to me, getting blogged on Barstool and getting posted all over my Facebook wall. And I just feel like I can’t ignore it for fear of looking like I wasn’t paying attention. Do. Your. Job. And all that.

That said, I should point out it’s brilliant. A true work of art. Just pure, two-tissue Patriots Porn.

The guys open the show ripping on Glenn's wardrobe, again. Then they got to talking about Christian's struggles calling Denver radio, and whether Gronk should be nervous about the Denver DB's going low.
