Brady welcomes Ochocinco

On Ochocinco and his relationship with Brady: "I’ve known Chad for a long time, I’ve watched him for a long time. He brings a lot of energy to the team, and we’re looking forward to everyone being out here and trying to get better. Trying to see what we can make of this year... [Ochocinco has] been a very prolific receiver; I think he’s had a bunch of production over the years. Hopefully he can come in here and find a role on this team, like we’re all trying to do. We’re all trying to come out here and see what we can make of this year, see what kind of role we can make for ourselves."

More on Ochocinco joining the Patriots on the field: "This is the first time I’ve had a chance to be with him on the field. I know he’s excited, I talked to him earlier, he’s excited to be out here. I think he’s excited to be a part of a new team. Like I said, everyone’s really searching for a role for themselves, we're all trying to establish a role for ourselves, Chad, myself, Wes [Welker], Deion [Branch], and all of us are trying to figure out what we can do to help this team win."

Brady on Albert Haynesworth and a big preseason hit he absorbed two years ago: "I saw him this morning and I told him, ‘I still haven’t forgiven you for that.’ He said he’s got a lot of friends up here and they’ve given him a lot of grief over the years. He’s a big guy and there’s a lot of competition at the d-line position. Like I said, Chad’s in the same situation, hopefully [Haynesworth] can come in and fill a role, be a big part of the success of this team. I think that’s what we’re all trying to do."

Brady on his health:
"I feel great, I feel excited. I think everybody’s been anxious to get out here and start playing and getting back to doing the things we really love to do... I feel really good. I feel about as good as I could feel."

Brady on potentially bringing back left tackle Matt Light: "I love Matt. Matt’s one of my favorite players that I’ve ever played with. He’s a great guy, great for this team, great in the community. I just can’t say enough about Matt. I hope he’s back, but those decision aren’t up to me. Matt’s performance speaks for itself."

On being back on the football field: "I think we’re all excited to be playing football again. We had a good day [Thursday]; As coach always says, we have to string them together. It’s a long process, a long season and a long camp and Coach talks about having a real short-term focus. I think there’s quite a few young players, new players, veteran players, that all need to get on the same page, that’s what we’re working to do."

Couldn't be more pumped for football... BRING ON OCHO!

With his trade not officially complete (at least according to Patriots coach Bill Belichick during the morning media session), wide receiver Chad Ochocinco didn't address the assembled media Friday at Gillette Stadium, but he offered some thoughts via social media (and already boasted an updated, New England-centric profile picture on his Twitter account):

Marvel teases 'Avengers' online with Cap's last scene

SPOILER ALERT! t’s generally considered counter-productive to give away the ending of your movie, but in the Marvel universe, the conclusion of any movie is just a segue into the next chapter of superhero adventures. Starting with Iron Man, their films have always unveiled a mysterious character after the closing credits. Now it’s Captain America’s job to bring them all together, and Marvel is showcasing the last scene of the film and a peek at the post-credit tease to help set the table for next’s year’s superhero summit, The Avengers. Take a look at the scene here, as Cap finds himself in Times Square after some time lengthy R&R.

Admit it, there’s no real spoiler here for anyone who knows how to navigate the internet. For those who’ve already seen the movie in theaters, this now allows them to freeze-frame the quick-cuts to better enjoy Thor’s biceps, Cap’s new threads, and Bruce Banner’s shirt — yes, it’s purple.

Pats improve their D

Before defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth could get to training camp and take his conditioning test, the Washington Redskins traded him to the New England Patriots for a 2013 fifth-round draft pick, according to league sources.

Haynesworth still must pass his physical to complete the trade.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Thursday morning that the trade was not yet completed.

In trading Albert Haynesworth, the Redskins part with a potential headache, while the Patriots are banking on Bill Belichick's ability to turn malcontents into team players, writes Dan Graziano. Blog

The Patriots play a base 3-4 -- Haynesworth's least-favorite defense. But there's plenty of room in their playbook for a player of his size and skills, writes Mike Reiss. Blog

"I talked to [Redskins coach] Mike Shanahan last night and we're in the process of acquiring Haynesworth, but that's not complete yet, so I can't really comment on that at this point until it's completed -- if it does get completed," Belichick said. "So, we'll see how that goes."

Haynesworth clashed repeatedly with Shanahan and frequently skipped workouts. Shanahan suspended him for the final four games of last season for conduct detrimental to the team.

The 30-year-old Haynesworth was at his best when playing in the 4-3 scheme as a Tennessee Titan and seemed to prefer that over the Redskins' 3-4 defense.

The Patriots, though, run plenty of multiple fronts, and Haynesworth lends needed help along their defensive line for a reduced price. The former Pro Bowl player's base salary for the coming season is $5 million. He is two years into a seven-year, $100 million contract that the Redskins signed him to in 2009. The contract at the time included a then-NFL record of $41 million in guaranteed money.

Speaking in generalities about adding a pass rusher, Belichick said: "Defensively, the two things you want to do are pressure the quarterback and cover the receivers in the passing game. That's what pass defense is: those two things working together and the timing of it, the coordination of it and the execution of it. That's what the passing game is all about. You can never have too much pass rush. You can never have too much pass coverage. You're always trying to improve that."

The Patriots have had a propensity for reaching out to get talented but troubled players and succeeding, having previously done so with running back Corey Dillon and wide receiver Randy Moss.

Haynesworth was charged in two separate incidents this offseason. He settled out of court in a road-rage case and also was accused of fondling a waitress at a hotel bar in Washington. He has pleaded not guilty in that case and is scheduled to go on trial in August.

"I think anytime you acquire a player, however you do it, you want to be comfortable putting that player into your team," Belichick said. "So whether you draft them, sign them, trade for them, however you do it, that's what you want to try to do."

In a 24-hour span, the Redskins will have unloaded Haynesworth and quarterback Donovan McNabb, giving Washington an entirely different atmosphere as it prepares to open camp.

Washington on Wednesday traded McNabb to Minnesota for a sixth-round pick in 2012 and a conditional sixth in 2013 in a trade that is expected to become official later Thursday.

Snow White: First Movie Pics

Kristen Stewart dons armor and wields a huge sword and shield for her next movie. Rest assured, it will not be your mother and father's Snow White.

Stewart joined other cast and crew Saturday at the Comic-Con fan convention for a preview of next year's "Snow White and the Huntsman," an action-packed twist on the fairy tale.

The "Twilight" star told a Comic-Con crowd that doing a sweet, traditional Snow White was not something "I was jumping at." What attracted her was that this Snow White was a bold leader with her feet firmly on the ground.

"Also, I get to have a sword and stuff," Stewart said. "Really cool weapons."

The movie is due out next June and is one of two "Snow White" movies Hollywood has coming. The other, due out next March, features Julia Roberts as the evil queen.

The cast of Stewart's "Snow White" includes Charlize Theron as the wicked queen, Chris Hemsworth as a rugged huntsman and Sam Claflin as a prince.

The movie starts shooting in a few weeks. Director Rupert Sanders showed off photos of the stars in costume, among them Stewart in her fighting outfit and Theron in a sleek black gown with savagely high and sharp collars.

How evil is Theron's queen?

"She's a serial killer," Theron said. "I'm pretty much preparing to play a serial killer."

Sanders also showed a photo of the dwarves that accompany Snow White in this version, all standing in a row looking scruffier than a gang in a police lineup. The actors playing them include Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Nick Frost and Toby Jones.

There are eight dwarves rather than the usual seven. Sanders said "there are eight because there are a few great lines when one of them gets killed."

'Two and a Half Men' launches naked ad campaign

Teasing “All Will Be Revealed” during its season premiere, Two and a Half Men launched a new teaser campaign that shows Jon Cryer, Angus T. Jones and Ashton Kutcher seemingly naked holding up a their launch date. Effective? Sure, it plays off the curiosity around the recast show and hints at characteristic Men raunchy humor. Though we don’t want to speculate what Cryer is frowning at…

New replay rules could lengthen games

The change in replay involves scoring plays. If an official rules a score (touchdown, field goal, safety or extra point) during a game, the replay official will automatically review the play. If there is any question as to whether the ruling is correct, they will buzz down to the referee and ask him to come to the monitor to review the play. If the replay official confirms the ruling is correct, they will buzz the referee indicating he is clear to let the scoring team attempt the extra point, or kick off if the scoring play was a field goal, safety or extra-point attempt. A coach will not be allowed to challenge the ruling of a score. The intent is to save the coach from having to challenge the ruling of a score and, thus, increase his chances of not running out of challenges or timeouts.

Sounds good, but there will be an unintended consequence. There will be a lot more replay stoppages in 2011, and the length of games will increase. Neither of those is good for the game.

Scoring plays are the most important plays in the game. Replay assistants were told that if they couldn’t confirm the score, they should stop the game. Replay assistants will wait for the television networks to show confirming replays and, if they're not shown, then will ask for a review. If there is any question, the replay assistants will rightly stop the game to protect themselves from allowing a score that a team might not be entitled to. They will stop plays that a coach would not challenge because he risks the loss of a challenge and a timeout if he is wrong. The replay official risks nothing. The replay official’s job just got a lot tougher, and the networks will be under more pressure to show replays in a timely manner. That won’t make anyone happy.

How many more stoppages and how much more game time will be added? Hard to say, but some have suggested they wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out to be one per game — and there are 256 regular-season games. There were 361 replay stoppages last season. One extra stoppage per game would add three minutes to the length of the game. The preseason will give everyone an indication of the impact.

Interesting Penalty Kick

David Guetta - Where Them Girls At ft. Nicki Minaj, Flo Rida

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford,opposed every one of Toronto’s community grants programs at a council meeting Tuesday.

The city's grants allocations for 2011 were about to sail through council without a discussion or vote when Ford rose to say he wanted to be recorded as opposing all of the grants programs. Council then voted on them individually.

Ford lost 43-1 in votes on four of the programs: Access, Equity and Human Rights, which provides money to groups working on issues related to “race relations, gender equity, literacy, disability, sexual orientation, and Aboriginal affairs”; Community Safety, for groups that work to prevent violence in priority neighbourhoods; Community Recreation, for groups “providing activities that address gaps in available services provided by city recreation services”; and Community Festivals and Special Events.

His brother, Councillor Doug Ford, joined him in opposing Community Service Partnership grants, for groups working to improve access to services “that improve social outcomes for vulnerable, marginalized and high-risk communities.” They lost 42-2.

Rob Ford did not explain his opposition to the programs during the meeting. He has not yet spoken to reporters.

Is Daniel Radcliffe heading to Toronto for premiere? Preparing for Potter mania!!!

Could Daniel Radcliffe be heading to Toronto to walk the trendy black carpet for the Canadian premier and after party for the franchise farewell, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 on Tuesday? The folks at Warner Bros. have sipped from the silence potion and won't say a word but rumours are swirling among Muggle fans that there some very big stars have RSVPd for the screening and the swish after party at Casa Loma. We already know that Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis, who has played Neville Longbottom in all of the Potter movies will be appearing. Fans are expected to start packing the area outside the Scotiabank Theatre (formerly at John and Richmond Sts. and now situated at Harry Potter Blvd. and Hogwarts Way, thanks to city council approval for the day) well in advance of the 6 p.m. screening of the final link in the Potter film chain. Ditto for the party, which starts at 8 p.m. at Casa Loma.

Megan Fox Aims to Dispel Botox Rumors Via Facebook Photos

For years now, Megan Fox has been plagued with rumors that she's had plastic surgery done, claims which she has continually denied.

She went as far as telling Allure last year that any woman who is considering getting work done should think about getting therapy instead.

"My lips are my lips," she told the magazine. "I would encourage anyone to first speak with a therapist, to try and figure out where this want comes from, because a lot of times it's not related to your teeth or your nose or your chin -- the surgery is not going to alleviate that insecurity for you."

But Fox apparently still has a chip on her shoulder.

Yesterday, she uploaded four pictures to her Facebook account in an album titled "THINGS YOU CAN'T DO WITH YOUR FACE WHEN YOU HAVE BOTOX."

Charlie Sheen takes on Two and Half Men with Comedy Central Roast!

Charlie Sheen absorbed some good ribbing from the Roastmaster General, Jeff Ross, during his recent live tour, but now, the former Two and Half Men actor is prepared for the full roast treatment. Comedy Central announced today that Sheen will be the main course at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. “You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this roast for a while,” said Sheen, in a statement. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”

“Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast… which scares even us,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s head of original programming and production.

The Roast will tape in Los Angeles on Sept. 10 and air on Sept. 19. Sept. 19? Sept. 19. Hmm, why Sept. 19? What else premieres on Sept. 19? Would you believe Two and a Half Men? Yup. Nice.

Tom Brady named by peers as the NFL's Best Player

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was a guest on NFL Network after being named the No. 1 player in the “Top 100 Players” poll voted on by players.

His reaction to being named the top player by his peers?

“It’s very flattering. I think I’ve been really fortunate over the years to play with an incredible organization and an incredible group of players. This year was really a great year for our team in the regular season. We accomplished some great things. The things that I love about football, that I’ve always loved, that I think draws each player in the NFL to this game, is that it’s a team sport. The great teammates that I’ve ever had, the teammates I had this year, nobody would really accomplish anything without the help of every single guy on that team and every coach. It’s very flattering, like I said, but ultimately I give all the thanks to teammates past and present. They’re what really makes this game special for me.”

After answering questions on Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis, lauding their excellence, Brady was asked how to went from sixth-round draft choice to superstar despite not playing with many big-name stars on offense.

"To me, I play with the best guys. There's nobody -- Deion Branch and Wes Welker, there are no two better receivers; those are the two guys I'd want to play with every single game," he answered. "David Givens and Troy Brown and David Patten, these incredible players we've had over the years that have led to the success of the organization at the skill positions -- and Corey Dillon and Antowain Smith. I've played with phenomenal players, Christian Fauria at tight end, and we have some young tight ends now.

"Each of these guys leaves a lasting impact on our team, and our offense has always been built around the players that we have and it's built around their strengths. I think we've had incredible players both offensively and defensively, and the competitiveness that we've played against each other in practice, I think is the reason we've continued to improve as a team year in and year out. That's really brought on by our coach. I think he really stresses that. It's very competitive in practice. Really, the guys that make it on our team are guys that last, guys that play significant roles on our team are guys that are professionals, that want to work, that love the game, and ultimately that want to be champions."

How to surf Facebook at work without anyone knowing

Want to check your Facebook without your co-workers or boss knowing? may be able to help.

The new website allows you to access your Facebook while making it look to those around you that you’re actually hard at work.

Here’s how it works: The site connects with your Facebook account then loads up your newsfeed to look like a spreadsheet.

It allows you to scan your newsfeed, browse photos, and click on links your friends share, all within the “spreadsheet.”

And if your boss is coming, simply press the space bar and your Facebook friends names are replaced with a bunch of numbers to make the spreadsheet look like an actual spreadsheet.

Of course, the site will only make it look like you’re doing actual work if you use spreadsheets in your job.

And the site will not work if your employer blocks Facebook via a firewall, since it needs to connect with Facebook in order to get all your information.
