I would have ended the day on the Earth shaking news that Netflix has dropped a teaser trailer for Season Two of “Stranger Things.” But it’s really nothing more than the opening title card with some random phrases that are probably the names of episodes or something. So instead, I’ll pivot to this Winona Ryder spoof from Funny or Die. While I object to the idea she overacted in Season One – she was amazing and if she doesn’t get an Emmy they should just stop giving them away – this is still pretty funny. Hopefully the show runners will get the new season out quickly without sacrificing quality because my alphabet wall with all the Christmas lights is almost ready.

This is the third of the “[Expletive] Pats Fans Say” videos I’ve been fortunate enough to take part in. Nick “Fitzy” Stevens, George “The Other Guy in Those Pats Fans Videos” Kippenhan and Geoff “The Director” Stevens not only do brilliant work with this series, they are great guys and I’m honored to be buds with them. Thanks, lads.

Dave Dombrowski said the Red Sox weren't going to rush out to sign Tebow after his baseball workout yesterday. Lou and Christian talk about how obviously bad Tebow would be in the MLB and why this is just a stunt.

While everyone at WEEI was doing their share Tuesday to put a $3.5 million boot in cancer’s ass at the NESN-WEEI Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon (take a bow, everyone who gave of themselves by donating), Tom Brady was giving a press conference in which he unveiled a new haircut. And of course, the Internet was not going to let a monumental development like that go unnoticed. Let a Tony Romo get injured or a Colin Kaepernick betray his country and nobody panics, because it’s all part of the plan. But let one little four-time Super Bowl champion part his hair on the side, and everyone loses their minds.

The reaction pretty much runs the gamut from calling Brady’s new moss the “Megyn Kelly” (see above), to all sorts of school references (see below). And were it on the head of any other quarterback, I might say it looks like the ‘do on the Yuppie douchebag comic foil in every ’80s movie from Bryce in “Scrooged” to Harry Ellis in “Die Hard.”

But this is not any other quarterback. This is the fashion-forward, perfectly groomed and always on point greatest of all time. So I’ll just call this new lettuce he’s sporting “The G.O.A.T.”

The Twittersphere disagrees, though:
