    Paulie may not have moved much, but that was only cause Paulie didn’t have to move for anyone.

    My mother was happy after she found out the Ciceros came from the same part of Sicily as she did. To my mother that was the answer to her prayers.

    Tomase:

    Feeling superior is what we do best, our pretentiousness output rivaling corn production in the Midwest (home to so many hicks and hayseeds, incidentally). Those who don’t see the problem with “Redskins” probably also fly the Confederate flag from their General Lees, rue passage of the 19th Amendment, and wonder why the gays can’t just keep to themselves.

    God, being better than everyone else feels so satisfying.

    We’ve got the best schools in America, the best hospitals in America, and the best ballpark in America. Next time you’re strolling down Yawkey Way, take a moment to absorb the beauty and grandeur of Fenw . . .

    Wait, what?

    Yawkey Way. The name that’s synonymous with Fenway Park and the Red Sox. The dominant name in the franchise’s history from the mid-1930s until John Henry bought the club in 2002. The name that’s immortalized on a plaque in Cooperstow

    Hospitals? Imagine if there were a couple of them around here who had the Yawkey name associated to them!

    He probably wrote this in the Nazi themed Ikea food hall.

    Via PFT, this is ex-ref Scott Green on the NFL’s suspending/re-assigning officials for errors in high-profile games:

    “The League is predictably handling the issue no differently than the others that characterize Commissioner Roger Goodell’s regime: arbitrary punishment of an individual for a fast public relations fix,” Green wrote.

    I wonder where Tomase wants the outrage to end?

    Should people stop driving Fords or going to DisneyWorld until they change their names?

    “The Sensational Detroit Lions.” A phrase that probably hasn’t been written since that poster.

    You think SKWANTOE minded being called a redskin by Wayne’s Pilgrim Forefathas? Of course not.

    Clay Travis’ reaction to Grantland shutting down.

    What I noticed was his criticism of newspaper writers and their transition to the web.

    You wrote for a newspaper. What paid your salary? Ads in the newspaper, primarily classified ads, which were the most profitable part of the business. From a business perspective the newspaper was just a means to deliver advertisements to customers. No one had any idea what people actually read. Writers and editors decided what they thought people wanted to read and then they wrote the articles. Most feedback was internal, your co-workers or bosses praised a story, the printing presses kept running, you had a hell of a business model to rely upon. Your salary wasn’t determined based on any diagnostic analysis of your talent or your readership, it was based on what editors thought.

    That’s because every single newspaper was its own media island. You competed with people in your city. If you were in a big enough city, there might be a competing newspaper. But that was it. You owned your market. If you didn’t like the writers in your town, good luck finding someone competing with them.

    Suddenly every writer is competing with every other writer in the country. (Note: this is slowly starting to happen with radio now too. It’s why I’m so bullish on the new Outkick the Show we’re launching soon.) The newspaper media islands turned into connected continents. Everyone could see what everyone else was writing. Instead of having 32 individual NFL writers making $90k a year, a guy like Peter King, the best of the group, could become the national NFL writing superstar and make $3 million a year.

    The fact of the matter is no one is reading those articles on any substantial basis — 99% of sportswriting — or writing on the Internet in general — will get less than 2,000 readers — but these guys were used to having something unique based entirely on their job, not their work ethic. If your article doesn’t contain something unique or entertaining, what’s the point of writing it? People don’t have to wake up the day after a game and read the newspaper to see what happened. They can watch or listen to the press conferences themselves. In order to build an audience, you have to work harder and smarter than other writers.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    Ahh yes come out this Sunday to Tom Yawkey’s lyric little plantation to see the sensational Detroit Lions featuring All Pro blocking back Jake “N-beater” Krakowski take on your Boston Redskins. Remember even if it’s sold out we’ll pack em in! Fire codes are for fascists! Stick around for ten cent Jew night in the big concourse!

    What year did Belichick’s father play a game for the sensational Detroit Lions?
