Glenn, Lou, and Christian react to the lazy "Boston is racist" narrative, perpetuated by Gutierrez and Jones' reaction to C's fans cheering Gordon Hayward. Lou thinks they're the ones being racist, and the guys point out every reason why the ESPN talking heads are wrong.

[0:08:07] ... you notice he didn't mention that they won out and got themselves Ray Allen because they already had. Paul Pierce. And that they went out and got Kevin Garnett the victory in the victory the Big Three that one themselves the most recent champion Russia won the Buick guys on the ...

TIMEOn Thursday, the apparel giant [Under Armour] is unveiling “UA Athlete Recovery Sleepwear Powered by TB12″ at the Consumer Electronics Show, which is essentially a commercial version of Brady’s tricked-out pajamas that cost between $80-100. The inside of this fitted garment––which comes in long or short sleeves and pants or shorts––is equipped with a soft bio-ceramic print, which can produce something called far infrared energy when combined with the body’s natural heat. The company touts far infrared energy as a sleep aid and is promising its Brady gear will reduce inflammation, regulate cell metabolism, and improve circulation, helping the body recover faster and fostering better sleep. (The packaging includes Brady’s six keys to better sleep, such as “keep your room clean. Contaminants like animal dander and dust restrict your breathing.”)

Under Armour is certain the product works. “We’ve tested it,” says Kevin Haley, UA’s president of innovation. “We’ve had actual third party testing. And it’s clear. Believe me, we have some of the biggest skeptics in the world running around here. This isn’t some outlandish thought, this is something people have been working on for a long, long time. We’ve had our best PhD scientists here breaking down all the science. It definitely works.

Once again, Tom Brady reminds us we’re doing everything wrong.

We’re not drinking enough electrolytes and now we’ve been wearing pajamas incorrectly our whole lives.

How in the world are normal people going to be able to tell if these pajamas are regulating their cell metabolism? Under Armour says “it definitely works” so I guess you just have to trust it.

The six keys to better sleep are enlightening also and they’re just giving those away here FOR FREE. You don’t even have to buy the bio-ceramic, far infrared energy pajamas to get those.

I would only buy $100 pajamas if Tom Brady wore them first.

Haley had such a convincing endorsement of this product, they don’t even need Brady for advertising. First of all, they tested it. Good. Even with some of the biggest pajama skeptics running around, the best PhD scientists prove it’s legit. The best.

But are Haley and the Under Armour people confident this works as advertised?

“When you say “how confident are we?’ I’m confident saying we’re very confident.”

Got it.

And maybe more confidence is even one of the side effects of these pajamas. When your cell metabolism is regulated and your body’s natural heat produces far infrared energy, nothing can stop you.

— NFL legend Joe Theismann criticized the 49ers on Tuesday for giving Colin Kaepernick the team’s Len Eshmont Award, which is given to the player who “best exemplified the inspirational and courageous play” of Eshmont. The recipient of the award is decided on by the players and was given to Kaepernick last week.

“You’re a 2-14 football team. He’s won one football game. What has he inspired?” Theismann said on Fox News’ Outnumbered.

Kaepernick started 11 of the 49ers 12 games this season. He threw for 2,241 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also notably kneeled during the national anthem before the games this season, sparking national debate.

Theismann also had an issue with Roger Goodell’s handling of the Kaepernick kneeling situation.

“I don’t agree with what he’s done,” Theismann said. “As a matter of fact, the American flag … stands for the right to be able to do the things you want to do, to be able to stand up and have a difference of opinion. I agree with that part of it, but not when you’re on the job. Everybody has the right to express their opinion, but not in the workplace.”

— Infamous Duke basketball tripper Grayson Allen was reinstated on Wednesday from his indefinite suspension after missing just one game.

Grayson was suspended indefinitely for intentionally and blatantly tripping players during games. He was back in the lineup in Wednesday night’s game against Georgia Tech, which Duke won 110-57.

Grayson was suspended for three notable tripping incidents during games last year.

Wednesday night’s game was coach Mike Krzyzewski’s final game before he undergoes back surgery on Friday.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “You know, Tom Brady is doing a great job without [Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski], without some of the big name guys he’s had in the past, but that makes his legacy even bigger. Because no matter who you put out there, he makes those guys better. He’s very methodical, he can carve you up, just like you said about [Packers QB] Aaron Rodgers. But I think he’s a step above Aaron Rodgers. Several steps.” — Former NFL wide receiver Steve Smith, talking about Tom Brady on ESPN on Wednesday 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Jose Iglesias (27)
