    so if you delete your twitter account, does the handle then become available to the public? I’m thinking @NEPD_Loyko would be fertile ground

    So I guess were going with penciling in the “L” because the Red Sox have to start a Right-hander tonight? Is that it?

    Listening to the mensa matt podcast.  Mensa Matt with an Alex Cora/Mega miwwyuns winning ticket joke right off the bat!

    Josh Marion has ceded control of the Josh Marion and friends podcast to Matt- the only think he’s said in the last 5 minutes is a half hearted “Fuck Kinsler” in the background when the poor Z-team take flinger they suckered into being the “guest” mentioned him.  It’s so strange- they are cosplaying Felger and Mazz, like me and my cousins used to do with GI Joe when we were kids.

    Josh’s edgier material is not landing

    Patrick Patterson, who plays for OKC (basketball) will not be traded to the Patriots (football) Josh.  He might be just surface level dumber than Matt.

    :lol:”I’ve got two minutes left guys, or I’m going to wake up my girlfriend”

    Mensa- *launches into a three minute soliloquy about how upset he’ll be if the pats give up X amount of points to a team they are playing a month from now* :lol:

    “We don’t want to get the women upset!”

    “I wearned dat de hard way Tim”

    My only conclusion about Mensa’s relationship to the English language is that he hates it, because why else would he treat it with such brazen contempt?

    I think Patricia and O’Brien are a combined 8-1 since they were buried by the media, Simple Ben foremost, IIRC.

    I was listening to MLB Radio the Red Sox problem is JD Martinez playing outfield and how do you make the Dodgers not hit to him.

    I’m a little surprised by the Vegas numbers (Sox +140/Dodgers -150 at the Westgate).

    Fortunately for us, despite words escaping his maw with all the grace and fluidity of CC Sabathia fielding a bunt, there are MORE than enough mockable takez in a short 28 minute podcast to go around :smile:

    I bet the families of those who died or were maimed in the Marathon bombing enjoy hearing some dickhead say the Sox were ‘lucky’ it happened. :wag: They were ‘lucky’ so many players had career years all at the same time, and I suppose they were lucky that Farrel didn’t over manage and fuck things up.

    #131791

    Listening to the Marion thing now. First, have to give credit to whomever comes on as the third guy in the podcast (in this instance Tim McKone). I assume they know going in that Mensa’s going to monopolize the podcast with a bunch of stupid, puddle-deep insights.

    I’m listening for his savaging of the language. He has this habit for getting like two-thirds of an expression correct: He just said the ’07 team was “loaded to bear” and that Kelly has become “nothing more” than a lights-out relief pitcher.

    From Miz last night on the Broncos ownership shitshow

    Edit: There are seven of those Bowlen kids. Are any on Brittany’s side? Are any others saying “Actually, I should be owner!”?

    Yes, 7 kids.  Beth is from the first marriage, Brittany from the second, so probably some catfighting based on that alone.  Actually none of the other kids has spoken publicly that I am aware of, and none of the others have taken any of the ‘steps’ required by the trust.  Beth is one of those “I’m rich and bored, maybe I’ll go to law school” types.  She had a job with the Broncos, some made up ‘special projects’ position.  A few months back when the trust shot down her request to assume ownership they stated that she got fired and she knows why.  Brittany has an MBA and worked in the league office for a couple of years and now works at McKinsey, so she’s taking the required steps but is still 12 years away from the age that Bowlen set for one of the kids to assume ownership.  I think there are some younger kids, and there are older kids but they are all partying and pissing away their money, some have had minority stakes that they’ve sold.  Heck the brother who filed the complaint had a 20% minority stake that he sold back years ago.

    quick image search of Brittany Bowlen, are we sure of her paternity?

    #131794

    Mensa was talking about how Cora can do no wrong, when Marion cracks a joke:

    “He could fart in front of 100 blondes with double Ds and they would say it smells like roses.”

    There’s this long, uncomfortable,  Thornton-waits-for-laughterish moment of dead air. McKone says nothing. Mensa finally bails Marion out: “I mean, ob-vee-uss-lee!” Then Marion laughs.

    So is this an expression somewhere?

    What age did Bowlen set for assuming ownership? Seems like a gigantic middle finger directed at the kids from the second marriage. I’ve always thought that these type of succession plans need to set up decades in advance and be crystal clear and air tight if for no other reason than to avoid 10’s if not 100’s of millions in inheritance taxes?

    That exchange dragged my soul to hell, never to return. I’m being charitable when I say Marion always sounds high as fuck during these, but it’s probably just idiocy and lack of preparedness.  At least pretend to have a  big boy radio voice like your idols.

    Just heard that part.  :lol: Marion introduces it by asking, “Hey fellas, what is the smoke that’s getting blown up my ass about Patrick Patterson…” He and Mensa are made for each other with their butchering of common expressions.

    In the ’09 trust he set the age at 40.  From the brother’s filing:

    More trouble with the language. Marion: “So fellas, we know that the frigging Bills game will be a smoke show for the Patriots.”

    Not to make light of his impediment, but I think a baseline for being allowed to be on the radio (or do a podcast) is being able to pronounce Ls and Rs correctly, especially if you’re going to keep saying the word, “Brady”.
    “OK, I’ll just be as bwief as I can…”
    “Whoever has the ball last, and that time it was Bwady…”
    “The Titans game is a little twicky for me because Mike Vwabel’s the head coach…”
    “Yeah, but didn’t we say that about the Wions in week thwee, Josh?”
    “The Packahs game is a coin fwip…”
    Both Mensa and McKone are a-scared of Rodgers, like it’s 2010. The conventional wisdom is unrelenting.

    It’s vastly unfunny and makes no sense.

    #131803

    I like to think the Broncos thing is like the alternate reality that would’ve played out had Trump gotten the Bills, with Ivanka and Tiffany playing the Beth and Brittany roles, respectively.

    And sheds a little too much light on Marion. If it were Gasper making the same analogy, we could at least write it off as overcompensation.

    You can become President of the USA at age 35 but you can’t own the Bronco’s til your 40. Makes sense. I hope the team gets sold to Nintendo and moved to Japan.

    Amazing that Dodger Stadium is the third oldest park in MLB…there is a 50 year gap between it and Fenway/Wrigley. The only one I can think of that perhaps left before its time was Forbes Field, at least on film it looks like a decent place. Ebbets was pretty much falling down, wasn’t it…and so was the Polo Grounds.

    Sensing a pattern:

    Draft analysis was Loyko’s alleged forte. He must have love Christian McCaffery over Dalvin Cook (or another non-white RB if those two were in different draft.)

    Coach Bedard never noticed any of this and no one apparently clued him in on Loyko’s views. Aaron Hernandez, though, everyone associated with the Patriots should have seen that coming.

    They haven’t employed editors in years, it seems. Gotta save all that money to pay the big guns who add nothing of value to the rag.

    Speaking of Baldelli, I was thinking yesterday that when he first got sick, (Shank? California Bill?) mocked him for being lazy and unmotivated. The attack was so shockingly ignorant and vicious that FJM wrote a column about it detailing RB’s illness and outright said (Shank? CB?) owed Rocco an apology. Anyone else remember this?
