    Sigh.

    Can I borrow your internet gun to shoot myself?

    Brian is all about giving the mods internet guns, just not Nasty Man Mark.

    Never in the course of human history has a guy said to a gal hey I don’t think this is right and the gal runs with it as fact anyway.

    After too much exposure to the siskel and eberts* of sportstalk radio, I almost long for a return to their political and pervert reveries.

     

    * and by that I mean Gene Shalit, Rex Reed, and Judith Christ.

    Patriots Nation held its breath as Tom Brady went skiing.

    Looking for his brain? LJ is too stoopid to understand pot vs. kettle.

    On the same subject (sorta), did I miss Shank’s column comparing Brady’s bunny hill jump (if that indeed was Brady) to the neverending cross to bear that was “Gentleman” Jim Lonborg’s off-season skiing accident? Insofar as the Globe in general and certainly Shank has decided to spend February through October 2017 re-living 1967, this would seem to be a mail-it-in-no-brainer, AKA the Shank Special.

    I was getting coffee yesterday morning, saw the Globe, flipped to Sports. Above the fold – Shank “Yaz changed it all!”

    I didn’t purchase the topical and vital to freedom journalism

    Apparently LJ thinks young Glen Campbell is an avid skier.

    Is it really fair to refer to that HC hoops player who was in just 1 episode as “Game of Thrones actor”?

    Why do you think he didn’t? My memory is that during the show the person holding the envelope always made the announcement. Beatty looked at the card, seemed confused, then passed it off.

    I didn’t interpret it as “Here, you read it.” I read it as he knew something was wrong, she thought he was joking around for dramatic effect, and he showed her, like, “This is what I’m seeing wrong. What do you make of this?” For all we know, she didn’t see Stone’s name and just read the picture. And if Beatty had his wits, he could have said something’s wrong. But how many could think on their feet in such a moment? As soon as they walked out with the wrong card, it was going to be awkward no matter what they said.

    I saw a clip where the camera is on the audience but they upped the sound a bit and after Dunaway read it and there was celebrating you could hear Beatty say to her on the still live mic “It says Emma Stone what the hell…” or something like that.

    Ordway was an actor.  Some soap opera and a Cheers cameo with McHale.

    Marty, two weeks in a row the Globe has had a feature on the beloved ’67 ball club.

    Can an oral history be far behind?

    The 67 Sox are porn to Buckley. Just the mention of 67 and he gets off

    Meanwhile they won’t write a single word this Fall about the 50th anniversary of the 1967-68 Celtics that actually won a championship for Boston just months after that team lost.

    Is Brady supposed to be buried in snow at his feet and hands?  Otherwise the skis make no sense and someone amputated his fingers on his throwing hand, which I doubt he got from skiing.

    No generations were connected by that team.  Nary a father/son combo in the Garden all season*

    I like how Pete opens by saying he’s not a fan of the combine then concludes with I’m pissed they moved the combine dates.  And he’s mad about the inconsistency of airline coffee.

    Saw a thing the other day the Principled Lineman trade ended up being Tim Wright and Trey Flowers.

    Do they win that game this year without Flowers? Questionable.

    I’d love to be a fly on the wall w/him at the SLoan conference.

    If you’ll look at my spreadsheet, you’ll see Atlanta averaged 33 points per game this year, and 26 points per game last year.  That’s an average of 29.5 points per game over the last two years

    So that’s quite a streak of scoring both above and below that two-year average. Pretty neat.

    If 538 wrote that it everybody would say how great of a job they did.

    Has SoSH slapped the franchise tag on Dr. Leather? We need some new blood, he may be a fit here.
