P.R. 101

Boston’s Jae Crowder fired off a tweet after last week’s game with the Jazz, complaining about TD Garden Arena fans cheering Gordon Hayward.

When a Celtics fan answered back to “love it or leave it,” Crowder tweeted, “I have no problem leaving it.”

Team president Danny Ainge told 98.5 The Sports Hub, “That’s not what we talk about in public relations training, but Jae knows it. And I’m not worried about it.”

But as Hillary Clinton would say, be worried. Be very worried.

UP ON THE ROOF

Things were going nicely for Weber State’s basketball team right up until the dripping started.

The Wildcats led 13-2, five minutes into Saturday’s contest with Idaho State, when a leaky roof at Holt Arena suspended play. To that point the Wildcats had made three of four 3-point tries.

Yes, you could say they were making it rain.

STOP THE PRESSES

The Utah Grizzlies issued a news release under the headline, “Grizzlies equipment manager Ryan Tall to ECHL All-Star Classic.”

Doesn’t this belong in the same news category as “Local family visits Yosemite”?

ENCROACHMENT!

Music City Bowl festivities this year included a buffalo wings eating contest.

Clearly the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl people need to answer back by adding a blues/jazz festival to their lineup.

CASH CRASH

A financial advisor has been accused of bilking millions from former NFL player Ricky Williams and ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman.

That’s sad, but does anyone believe either of these guys couldn’t lose millions all by himself?

SLEEPYTOWN

Tom Brady has teamed with Under Armour to promote the latest in performance wear.

It’s called “recovery sleepwear” and it’s actually just pajamas.

The item is supposed to help facilitate 8-10 hours of uninterrupted sleep, thus allowing the buyer to perform at peak levels.

On the other hand, listening to a Brady press conference is a good way to get 8-10 hours of sleep, too.

THE ROYAL THRONE

The Victoria Royals minor league hockey team has a goaltender named Griffen Outhouse.

And in some small way, this takes the pressure off Chicago Black Hawks winger Jordin Tootoo.

ROUGH AND TUMBLE

Chess boxing is a sport in which participants are either strategizing or throwing a haymaker — also known as “appearing on ‘The O’Reilly Factor.’”

DOLLAR DAZE

Bronco Mendenhall and his assistants made up the most expensive coaching staff per win in college football this year.

The University of Virginia is just now starting to understand the full meaning of Bronco’s favorite phrase: “Fully invested.”
