Mashup: Giants RB tells Gisele to 'shut up'

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs offered his take on the Gisele Bundchen controversy, after Tom Brady's supermodel wife was videotaped criticizing Patriots receivers following Sunday's Super Bowl. Bundchen was responding to a heckling Giants fan when she said that her husband could not catch the ball as well as throw it.

Said Jacobs to reporters at Tuesday's Giants victory parade in New York: "She just needs to continue to stay cute and shut up."

Read more about that story and others -- including a poll that shows Michael Vick and Tiger Woods are the most disliked athletes in America -- plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.

Pierce on passing Bird: 'It was a relief'

Paul Pierce could hear the sighs every time he got the ball with a chance to pass Larry Bird on the Celtics' all-time scoring list, and when he eventually was able to do it early in the third quarter of their game with the Bobcats on Tuesday, he finally was able to relax.

"It was a relief," Pierce said. "So much was hanging over me the last couple of days just hearing about it. Knowing that you've got a game to play and so many people talked about it and talked about it. That for me is great feat, knowing that you're going to be up there with all the great Celtics. You know, Larry Bird is one of the most important players that ever played [for] this franchise. Just to be up there and have your name with them is a great honor."

Pierce called Bird "one of the top five players that ever played the game. I'm not going to sit here and say that I'm anywhere near his accomplishments, but just to be mentioned with him, with this...

Red Sox sign highly-touted Australian pitcher

The Red Sox signed highly-regarded 17-year-old pitcher Daniel McGrath Tuesday, with the left-hander making the deal official at his Melbourne home in front of significant gathering of Australian media.

McGrath will travel to Fort Myers for just more than a week during spring training, but then return to Australia where he won't graduate from high school until December. The 6-foot-3 southpaw will also pitch in the under-18 Nationals for a third time, having already shown the best velocity (approximately 91 mph) of any Australian pitcher to throw in the tournament.

According to one major league source, there were 15 big league organizations interested in McGrath, who narrowed down his decision to three teams at the end. A longtime Red Sox fan, McGrath turned down richer offers from other teams in order to sign with the Sox, the source added. The Red Sox were represented at Tuesday's signing by the organization's scouting director for the Pacific...

Five straight: Balanced Celtics top Bobcats

On the night Paul Pierce passed Larry Bird for second place on the franchise's all-time scoring list, the Celtics used a balanced offensive attack to get past the Bobcats, 94-84 at TD Garden.

Five Celtics scored in double figures, led by Kevin Garnett, who scored 22 points on 10-for-15 shooting. Ray Allen scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half, Brandon Bass added 13 off the bench and Rajon Rondo recorded 14 assists to go with 10 points.

But the night belonged to Pierce, whose 3-pointer early in the third quarter moved him past Bird on the scoring list and left only John Havlicek ahead of him (by more than 4,500 points). Pierce finished with 15 points, eight rebounds and nine assists. 

The Celtics have won a season-high five straight games and nine of their last 10 to improve their record to 14-10. They're back in action Thursday when they host the Lakers.

Pierce soars over Bird on C's scoring list

BOSTON -- With 10:22 remaining in the third quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Bobcats, Celtics captain Paul Pierce passed Larry Bird for No. 2 on the team's all-time scoring list.

After 13-plus seasons in a Celtics uniform, the 34-year-old Pierce entered the game needing just nine points to tie and 10 to pass Bird, who finished his 13-year career with 21,791 points. After scoring seven first-half points to close within two of Larry Legend, The Truth made his fourth 3-point attempt to seal the deal.

"Whenever you pass anybody in Boston, that means you're old, first of all," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said prior to the game. "That's the only way you can get there. You would have to play a long time, because of the history of this franchise and the numbers that have been amassed. ... He's been so consistent throughout his career. Passing Larry Bird in anything is pretty impressive."

Pierce still trails John Havlicek...
