Tonight, the Bruins face the Islanders in Game 3 of the second-round playoff series at 7:30 p.m. The series is currently tied 1-1.

The Red Sox will try to avoid a four game sweep at the hands of the Astros today at 2:10 p.m. after losing to Houston on Wednesday, 2-1.

And a day after being eliminated from the playoffs, the Celtics made sweeping organizational changes. Danny Ainge stepped down as president of basketball operations, with head coach Brad Stevens moving to the front office as a replacement. Boston will now begin a search for a new head coach.

Tom Brady’s recollection of a notable fourth down moment: Though Tom Brady’s season ended with another Super Bowl win, it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the 43-year-old in his first season with the Buccaneers.


At the end of an October loss to the Bears, Brady experienced a moment of embarrassment when he appeared to forget it was fourth down on the Buccaneers’ final drive.

Following an incompletion on fourth down, Brady appeared to believe his team had one more chance (having confused third down with fourth).

In a recent social media post, he offered some humorous narration of the moment.

“You guys remember this one?” Brady asked. “Fourth quarter, last chance in Chicago, I thought it was the second-to-last chance in Chicago, but apparently not.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever been as confused as I am in this moment right here,” Brady admitted as he rewatched the footage.

“Look at that face,” Brady joked, referencing what would become an internet meme.
