Kirk, Gerry and Mut start off the Tuesday show back in studio discussing the strange absences of Tom Brady throughout training camp, as well as all the sponsors that have bailed on swimmer Ryan Lochte.


This is an abomination. Lewd, lascivious, salacious, outrageous!

Theft is bad enough. Grand larceny like this is even worse. But to have someone in a Tom Brady jersey commit a heinous act like this is an affront to everything we stand for. It’s treason. And like treason, should be dealt with in the most severe way the law allows.

So it’s up to all of us to catch this guy. Right away. I’m so incensed, I don’t know which movie white guy/authority figure in a suit to quote:

  • “I want this little steal-happy bastard caught and hung up by his Buster Browns!” (Mayor Vaughn, “Jaws”)
  • “I want him found. Not tomorrow, not after breakfast — now.” (Warden Norton, “Shawshank Redemption”)
  • “All right, listen up, people. Our fugitive has been on the run for 12 days.  What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at 15 miles. Your fugitive’s name is Thieving Weasel. Go get him.” (Lt. Gerard, “The Fugitive”)

But in the meantime, while the posse and I are out combing the area around Foxboro and Wilmington for any sign of this sticky-fingered scumbag, investigators will have to rely on the good citizens of New England to keep an eye out for him. That means pawn shops, collectibles stores, anywhere he might try to fence the helmet. Or maybe his friends and family. If they suddenly find an expensive looking Tom Brady autographed skull bucket appearing on a shelf in this jagoff’s house, let’s hope they care more about law and order than they do the Hamburglar here and alert the authorities.

Either way, this guy cannot escape justice for long. It’s only a matter of time before we nab him. And we better do it quick. Before Roger Goodell says the video implicates Brady and suspends him for another four games.

The Athletics fined third baseman Danny Valencia and designated hitter Billy Butler after a reported clubhouse fight between the two that forced Butler to the seven-day concussion list.

According to John Shea and Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, two witnesses said the altercation was over an endorsement contract that Valencia lost due to Butler. The incident happened before batting practice on Friday, when an equipment rep questioned Valencia regarding off-brand spikes in his locker. Valencia said he only used those cleats during batting practice and pregame workouts, and Butler jumped in and said Valencia was lying, often wearing the off-brand cleats in games.

After the rep left, witnesses said Valencia confronted Butler and said, “Don’t you ever loud-talk me in front of a rep. That was wrong.” Butler said, “I can say whatever I want, and your [expletive] isn’t going to do anything about it.”

The sources said that the men bumped heads and began pushing one another, with Valencia drilling Butler in the temple. Butler has not played since the incident, and Valencia sat out Saturday’s game.

“There was an altercation in the clubhouse, we’re aware of it, both players have been disciplined and fined and we’re moving past it,” A’s general manager David Forst said. “That’s it. From the organization’s standpoint, it’s resolved and we’re moving past it.”

Said Valencia: “You’d like to handle things differently, but we’re handling it in here. As with anyone in the game, you have to overcome obstacles. We all have to persevere in here.”

A’s outfielder Coco Crisp and Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer, a former teammate of both Valencia and Butler, tweeted out their support for Valencia on Sunday.

Bleacher ReportUnited States Olympic gymnastics star Aly Raisman did a segment for Yahoo Sports about what she looks for in a date.

To summarize: Zac Efron is off-limits, and Rob Gronkowski, though he’s a partier, will be allowed to try on her gold medal.

At the end of the video, the 22-year-old received a date invitation from Oakland Raiders tight end Colton Underwood, and she accepted with a smile.

The connection is 2008 gold medalist Shawn Johnson, who is friends with Raisman and married to Raiders long snapper Andrew East.

Look, I appreciate that Aly Raisman wants to be choosy. Simone Biles likes Zac Efron and Aly is all about putting sisters before misters. And Gronk is too wild for her to keep up with, so they’ll just stick to being Masshole pals. I respect that.

But Colton Underwood? That’s her fallback? A guy not only from the Oakland Raiders, a team people from Needham of her parents’ age were raised to despise, but an undrafted rookie out of Illinois State?

No. Absolutely not. Until now, I have not gotten involved in Aly Raisman’s romantic life, but on this one I have to put my foot down.

Aly is an Olympic champion. More than that, she is an icon. An inspiration to millions of American girls. She owes it to them and to her country to date up about 100 levels from Colton Underwood. Even if there’s some sort of friend-of-a-friend thing going on with Shawn Johnson and the Raiders’ frigging long snapper. Even if she was put on the spot with that pathetic video. Her position in life requires her to have higher standards than this. In the same way that the royals can only date people from their same station in life, she can’t be seen slumming with a guy who doesn’t have as much tight end talent as Gronk’s shadow.

So forget it, Aly. You’ve got to blow off this Colton person. Fast. Or let him down easy. Tell him, “Something suddenly came up.”

Or dump him, cruelly and viciously, for all I care. But just dust this guy off, pronto. We can’t be having champions like you dating nobodies.
