Glenn, Lou, and Christian discuss the breaking news of David Pastrnak's suspension. We hear the NHL Penalty Commission's explanation of why Pastrnak was suspended, but Lou still doesn't think it was warranted. The guys also would like it if the NFL released video and explanations of discipline.

Glenn, Lou, and Christian discuss Jaylen Brown's presence in last night's game at crucial times. Glenn says that indicates the team has faith that he can be a go-to player in those situations. Lou and Christian think he might need to be eased into that role.

Maxim It may feel like ancient history now but there was a time when Olympic ice skater Tonya Harding was one of the biggest names in the world.

Unfortunately, it was because of her part in a scheme to disable rival Nancy Kerrigan—a plot that quickly unraveled and ultimately saw her banned from skating and convicted of hindering the prosecution of the men who attacked Kerrigan.

Now Variety reports that it looks as though Margot Robbie may be set to bring Harding to life in a movie based on the ridiculous episode. …

“I, Tonya” will tell the tale of the 1994 assault on Kerrigan and appropriately enough, is reportedly set to be a comedy.

I’ve been sitting here trying to think of any news item that could have me more excited than a report that a Tonya and Nancy movie has gotten the green light, and I’ve got nothing. I literally can’t think of anything in entertainment that I’d rather see than this epic tale being immortalized on film.

Believe me, I’m aware that I’m dating myself here. A while back, this subject came up at our office and two interns knew nothing about it. As I told them the story (at least for the first 20 minutes or so of me telling them the story, because I have a lot of details), they could scarcely believe such a thing could have captured the hearts and minds of America. But if you didn’t live through it, no explanation will suffice. If you did, none is necessary. The Tonya and Nancy saga not only dominated the news for months, it was one of those stories that was so surreal, both in the events that unfolded and the living caricatures involved – not to mention the awesome 1990s mustaches – that it seemed like a work of fiction. Even while it was happening.

The truly remarkable thing is that it’s taken so long for someone to make it into a major motion picture. I mean, it got the TV movie of the week treatment and a stage musical. But this is the only way to do it justice. Now add Margot Robbie – the flat-out hottest woman in Hollywood and director Craig Gillespie, who did the very underrated “The Finest Hours,” and we might as well start putting the name plate on that Oscar right now.

Candy Store To help you buy the best Halloween candy for your neighborhood, we determined the most popular candy by state. …

Massachusetts
Maybe Massachusetts love of Butterfingers has something to do with why all that tea slipped out of their hands and into the harbor back in 1773. Doh!  Perhaps not. But what our candy history tells us is that this state certainly loves this chocolate peanut butter candy bar.  Over 650,000 bars are eaten here.

Bad puns and lame historical allusions aside, I can live with Butterfingers being the candy of the great state of Massachusetts.

Basically it comes down to this. In order to be the best, a candy has to include a contrasting combination of at least two flavors and textures. It can’t just consist of one, homogeneous candy. Consider for instance, Alabama. Hershey’s Mini Chocolate Candy Bars? Those are their favorites? Meaning if Alabamans only had one candy they could take to a deserted island, they’d go with just plain chocolate formed into a square? How about living a little, you deprived, backwoods yokels.

Or Delaware. Life Savers? Really? Look, I like a good Life Saver as much as the next guy. But what kind of a primitive do you have to be to pick a hard candy as your favorite? You might as well just say your favorites are mints. Which is insane.

Like I said, for a candy to be truly great, it has to involve at least two elements. And there is no better combo than chocolate and peanuts, therefore Butterfingers is a more than acceptable choice we can be proud to call our own. I would also have accepted Peanut M&Ms or Reese’s. Just don’t get me started on the West Coast, where they seem to have some bizarre fixation for Salt Water Taffy. Please. Put that in some Masshole’s Halloween bag and you schedule some time the next morning to get the toilet paper out of your trees, dink. The Region of Champions eats candy like champions.

The vast and brutal digital food chain that is social media claimed another victim Thursday at the news that Vine is ceasing operations. Launched in 2013 and the source of billions of videos looped trillions of times, Vine is most likely the victim of Instagram’s video option. Or it was swallowed up the bigger footprint established by Snapchat once it started being about more than sending temporary bewb pictures. Though it could be that it was devoured by Facebook Live, which is eating everything in the ecosystem.

Regardless, it’s only fitting that I pay tribute with one man’s list of the top ten Patriots moments captured by Vine videos. It’s my way of saying thank the app for presenting us years of greatness, six seconds at a time.

10. The Doorbuster as 20,000 people show up for the first day of camp.

9. Tom Brady bounces throws out the first pitch at Fenway on Opening Day, 2015.  

8. The Indianapolis Colts “Funt” play.

7. The current and future quarterbacks.  

6. The White House visit.

5. Rob Gronkowski dances at the Super Bowl rings party.  

4. The one and only Buttfumble.

3. The parade.

 

2. “One, two, three, four…”

1. Malcolm Butler’s interception for the ages.
