I woke up about 3am PST today to let the dogs outside, and turned on the Simmons pod, and couldn’t go back to bed because I was enraged the first 20 minutes of that pod was so terrible/inaccurate. If only there was some sort of world wide web of information they could use to reference games of yesteryear! Zero research by Simmons. Zero. Lazy as fuck.
That’s true about research but it’s deeper than that. (get ready I’m about to get edgy by ripping on board fav Bill Simmons).
How much research would it take for you or anyone here to recall who was up when Dave Roberts stole second, or who was covering Ray Allen when he went by for the 4th quarter lefty layup in LA in game 4? Would you need to look up who caught Brady’s first TD in 49? And you don’t even have your own website advertising yourself as the Boston Sports guy. It’s shameful. People here remember that stuff because we enjoyed the games so much that the events became important memories. It’s an act with him, he’s a fraud.
Here’s the callahardfoul personal metric for a true Patriots fan: You have to at least know (1) the score and (2) the yard line the Pats were on when they executed the intentional safety, as well as (3) the opposing player who fucked up the ensuing kick return and (4) the player on the Patriots who scored the winning touchdown. Thems the basics. No chance Simmons gets any of those 4.
