She would also like us to set the record straight for her: Brady is innocent!!

The marketplace, however, may have a different verdict: Read more.

UPDATE: Barstool's David Portnoy and pals got arrested after handcuffing themselves together in the lobby.

Oh, those wacky Barstool folks, now down in New York for the day. They're all probably way too young to remember the time Dave Maynard led a troop of Minutemen down to New York to protest parking tickets people in Massachusetts started getting even if they had never visited that city.

Because that's when the Patriots Duck Boat parade will start at the Prudential Center. It will end with at City Hall, rather than with the ceremonial dunking in the Charles, because the Duck Boats are not equipped as icebreakers.

UPDATE: Mayor Walsh says no rally at City Hall, though, due to all the snow and the windchill. Also: City is working to remove snow from everywhere, not just the parade route, mayor says. He adds:

I think we're gonna have school tomorrow. We're not cancelling school for the parade tomorrow, I can tell you that.
