    Bedard was patting himself on the back every time he hit a subscriber benchmark.  His last one was, “Oh yeah!” when he hit 7k.  He even had it pinned on his Twitter for awhile.

    Haven’t been any “Oh yeah!” tweets since then.

    Every time Chris Price tweets “Who will be subscriber #7879?” I feel a mixture of pity and schadenfreude.

    It’s still mindroasting that with all the free content out there, ANYONE would part with $40 to read his poorly written, utterly useless, hot-take garbage.

    WTF IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?  :blink:   :pk:

    I want Peter King to give my eulogy…..

    “David, I have to tell you a story. The reason that Jack Hamilton’s name always stuck with me, from the age of 10 (I grew up a Red Sox fan in northern Connecticut) to when I saw he died, is this: Hamilton hit Conigliaro on the night of Aug. 18, 1967. The afternoon of Aug. 19, 1967, was one of two days I spent that magical season in Fenway Park, making the 90-mile drive from my little Connecticut town to Fenway to see the Angels-Red Sox day game. Maybe 15 minutes before the game, the Angels pitchers who’d be in the bullpen that day popped out of the dugout and began the 400-foot trek across the field to the bullpen. I stood up with everyone else in the crowded ballpark and booed at the top of my lungs. Everyone else did too. We were booing the guy, Jack Hamilton, who beaned our young hero. Conigliaro was beloved not only because he was a looming Red Sox all-star, but because he was a New Englander himself; he was one of our own. I have never forgotten that day. I’ve felt bad, especially recently, for helping rain down such venom on a guy who surely didn’t mean to hit Conigliaro. There are times as fans you should boo someone. But he didn’t deserve that. I hope he died a happy man.”

    Nice job, Zip. But you have to include something like, “Hamilton always had a good eye for the game.”

    Worse than the baseball fagola’s…… “They still know how to make the old gym on 33rd Street hum and buzz, even in a basketball time when the memorable seasons at St. John’s have been outliers and the losses have outnumbered the wins, when you started to wonder if the Johnnies really could ever cast the city under its spell again.” Walter Berry is not walking thru that door dumbasses. Also, wait until the visionary publisher/trophy wife/yacht owner finds out that her team wasn’t leading this initiative. Sam Kennedy’s got some mansplaining to do. “The Royals made room for an anti-porn seminar in their spring training lineup this year.”

    Karmic payback for Carnesseca’s horrible wardrobe choices? UConn’s 32-0 record in women’s basketball this year prompted me to look up Coach Geno’s lifetime record: Regular season: 1,023–135 (.883) :blink: Tournaments: 488–61 (.889) :blink:

    The Shank of the Hartford Courant will shit all over Geno for not winning a tournament road game in 13 years (because he’s always had such a good record he never has to play at the other guy’s gym)

    Well he can have Imperioli play Dickie Moltisante.   Hope that dweeb Iler is not in it somehow.

    Hard to believe the Johnny Boy character was the same guy that played weepy Fred Goldman in the OJ tv show.

    I’d have gone with Image result for steve buckley but he had other important things to write about today.

    “Are the Sox going to bring back the tried-and-true bullpen cart of days gone by?”

    Yeah, I remember being shocked by that. Good actor.
