Brady leaves Nike for Under Armour

Tom Brady told Sports Illustrated's Peter King that he recently signed a contract to endorse Under Armour after his deal with Nike expired in the summer. The deal includes a financial stake in the 14-year-old Maryland company.

 

"Under Armour's everything I was looking for," Brady said. "It's cool. It's fun. It's what so many of the kids are wearing, and I like to try to stay cutting-edge. I like the company. I think we've got a lot in common. We both want to stay hungry, stay humble.''

 

King reports that Brady is Under Armour's first superstar athlete, and the quarterback will appear in commercials and print ads starting in early 2011.

 

Under Armour's highest-profile endorsers are Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, swimmer Michael Phelps and skier Lindsey Vonn.

 

"At this point in my career, it's got to be about a product I believe in," Brady said. "I felt...

Brady on D&C: 'We were forewarned'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Monday Morning for his weekly chat as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Brady said the Pats did not take the Browns lightly before Cleveland rolled to a 34-14 victory Sunday.

 

"Believe me, we knew we were in for a dogfight," he said, adding: "We were prepared. We were forewarned 50 times last week. We've got to take the coaching better, and get back to playing the way we need to play."

 

Added Brady: "I wouldn't say we played tough, smart or physical yesterday. Those are our strengths, and we didn't play to those."

 

Asked about the late-game celebration by the Browns coaches who are former Patriots assistants, Brady said, "It's just their personality," and if the Pats didn't like it, they should have played better to prevent it. "When you play well, you can do whatever you want, as...

Mashup: Dolphins' Crowder spitting mad

Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder was furious Sunday during the Dolphins' 26-10 loss to the Ravens, but it wasn't just because of the loss. Crowder became incensed and had to be restrained by his teammates because, he later explained, Ravens fullback Le'Ron McClain spit in his face. McClain denied the accusation, but Crowder was adamant after the game. "Le'Ron McClain spit in my face," he said. "That's some real [expletive], so if you talk to him tell him he's a [expletive] and if he ever comes to Miami he's got to see me. ... That's the first time I've ever been spit in my face in my life, and that's the worst thing you can do to a man as another man, spit in somebody's face." Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

The Celtics have now won five straight games and six of their first seven, after beating Oklahoma City, 92-83 to start their road trip. Ray Allen scored 19 points, Paul Pierce added 17 and Rajon Rondo had 10 points and 10 rebounds, but the stars of the night where the reserves who outdcored their OKC counterparts, 33-12 and held off a fourth quarter rally.

 

The C's had a 58-37 at the half, but the Thunder made their inevitable run late in the third quarter and into the early stages of the fourth, cutting the Celtics lead to six. The bench that saved the day as Glen Davis knocked down a couple of shots and pushed the lead back to double digits. This may have been the Celtics best, most complete, win of the season.

Source: Hale to interview with Mets

According to a major league source, Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale will interview with the New York Mets for their vacant managerial position sometime early this week. The 49-year-old Hale was recently one of the four finalists for the Toronto Blue Jays managerial opening, which ultimately went to former Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell. Hale, who has been with the Red Sox since 2006, has not held a major league managing job, having last managed with the Rangers' Triple-A team in Oklahoma in 2001. Hale was named the minor league manager of the year in 1999 after leading the Trenton Thunder to a record of 92-50. CSNNE was first to report the news of Hale's scheduled interview with the Mets.
