    Do you think Pete’s editor just emails the column back to him after an hour or so, “looks good to me!” without even bothering? I can imagine any sentient person not bringing up some of these things to him (especially when he has said something contradictory, often in the same column) only to be swatted back with word counts, hours spent typing, etc

    I used to work with a guy who did that (The editor part, not the PK part.) You would send out something for review to 10 or 15 people. It didn’t matter if it was 2 paragraph announcement or an 8 page procedure, he would always respond within 5 minutes with “Looks good!”

    I imagine with PK there’s an understanding that you don’t tell him how to write his column. They probably scan it to make sure there aren’t any sexist or racially insensitive comments and leave it alone otherwise.

    Pedro Morales will not be down for the Bruins game tonight

    Magnificent Muraco can finally hold on to the Intercontinental title for more than one match.

    I halfway think the NBA should go and just redraft the entire league every year, from Steph and Lebron to G-League guys.

    TB12 should hire Donnie Muraco as his workout guru.

    I thought I might be able to make the last non-stop to New York, but I dawdled at Edelman’s place, and I had no chance

    What a terrible guest. I’ll just hang well beyond my welcome.

    I really hoped, for convenience sake, that Edelman would have been in Massachusetts for another day or two so I could have made this a one-day trip on the heels of a travel-filled playoff season

    Poor baby. A travel filled playoff season. Pretty sure the players had to travel too. And of course we know Pete’s convenience is the overriding concern.

    We’ve underestimated his lack of self awareness somehow.

    I’d love to try your restaurant!  I’m a light eater and usually take 1/2 my dinner home, do you have to-go boxes?

    The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it

    Hey Jen, place looks great! I love a nice Cab with my pasta, but I couldn’t find your wine list?

    The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it

    I’m a pretty easy customer- I worked in the industry and understand how hard it is. I never send food back or complain about how long my entree takes, I understand that is out of the server’s hands.  The only request I have is that I not be snarkily attacked by a middle-aged foul-mouthed fallow-skinned STD fountain for having the temerity to ask for something that might have been slightly askew from her vision for her restaurant (like, say, bread before the appetizers). Can you assure me that will not happen?

    Saw that Buoniconti thing on HBO. He’s in tough shape. I had forgotten he went to suffolk law while playing for the Pats.

    Well, no chance of the Pats facing Jumpball Joe in 2019:

    Trade cannot be processed, commented about or acknowledged but someone still texted Schefter immediately.

    “Shefty” reporting Jumpball Joe getting traded to the Broncos.  Hilarity to ensue.

    Case Keenum has to be having some self doubt after being replaced by Flacco and Cousins in consecutive seasons.

    If WEEI/the Red Sox hire Mario Impemba, the former Tiger announcer who mixed it up with his color man last season and got fired, maybe Magician Beard and he will slug it out on air some time this season.  If I could be guaranteed that that would happen, I might listen to their gigs together gigs this summer.  Otherwise … Tom Caron?  Really?

    :wall:

    I kind of doubt McDonough could stomach coming back here and working for the radio station and the ownership that he battled against ca. 2002-2004.

    :lol: Spike Lee had to correct the hapless Barnicle, pointing out that he had, in fact, received a lifetime achievement award [in 2015], but that this year was different in that he is vying for Best Picture and Best Director Oscars. :lol:

    Can you provide some details.

    Adding Futility Lou to the radio broadcast will really make it unlistenable.

    Lou already subs, correct? Last season, he ruined every broadcast he was on. He absolutely SUCKS.

    Local radio guy here via Ipswich is doing victory laps over the Flacco acquisition.  His proposed strategy is get a guy like Flacco then keep drafting QBs in the first round, no lower than 10 because any other quarterback drafted past 10 blows, until you find one that sticks.  Don’t like a guy?  Just trade him.  No problem.  Then draft another one.  Basically draft high, sell low.  Sounds like a great philosophy.

    Right, but later in the thread Waxpack starts sucking up and agreeing with idiots who apparently have no clue what a decent announcer sounds like that yes, Lou is very good at it. He’s such a fraud.  :puke:
