What to watch with no live sports: Tom Brady, Patriots' highlights from Super Bowl LI comeback

Losing live sports has been an odd adjustment. But, as everyone knows, we’re in uncharted territory.
Still, we all need something to help pass the time. There’s a lot out there. You can read. Board and video games are options. Maybe crocheting?
Personally, I’m going to rewatch and catch up on shows and movies. With there being so much out there to consume on these streaming services and even regular old cable, it can seem overwhelming.
Here are some recommendations for Wednesday, March 18:


Instead of a show, we’ve got a show reunion for you.

This comes courtesy of WEEI.com’s Matt Kalman, who said our Gen X readers would appreciate this most:


If you’re not at work this morning or can set your DVR before you leave, Coach Carter is on AMC from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Can’t believe that movie came out 15 years ago.

For some reason, I thought Coach Carter was on Netflix, too. It’s not. You know what is, though? Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Return of the King is on there, too. And those have some epic battles, but they’re not over the top. Had Fellowship of the Ring on in the background Tuesday, and that movie doesn’t get the credit it deserves. However — and I expect I’m not alone in this — fast forward through all the Frodo parts in each of these movies.


ESPN may not be able to give us their new Michael Jordan 30 for 30 ahead of schedule, but they’re still rolling out some good ones this week. At 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, we’ll get I Hate Christian Laettner. Then, ESPN will have its NFL Free Agency Special at 9 p.m.

Also, ESPN Classic has classic baseball on from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. After that, they’ve got a classic Celtics game: Game 4 of the 1981 Eastern Conference Finals against the Sixers — though, it’s not exactly a game that ended well for Boston.


Tuesday was a day everyone felt coming for a while, but it was still shocking to see Tom Brady say his time with the Patriots is over.

If you want to remember back to a happier time, what better game to look back on than Super Bowl LI, when Brady helped lead the Patriots to a ridiculous comeback win:
