    I was watching Morning Joe’s first hour and wondering why the pursed-mouth panderer was at the table. Turns out that as our official historian/fan of the Red Sox, Mr. Bleacher Seats was there to help shill Scarborough’s appearance at Hot Stove/Cool Music. Of course, he referred to Gammons as a “Hall of Fame columnist.” Good to know Mikey’s relationship with accuracy is unchanged.

    Then I clicked over to the online Globe to see what was up with the Patriots (ha ha). Lead stories were on watching Super Bowl ads online, Boston vs Philly-set movies, which I think means comparing “Spotlight” to “Rocky III”, and breaking news that there was a “Football” question column on Jeopardy last night. Oh, plus a byline — Nora Princiotti — I’ve never seen. Good solid info!   :weei:

    Oh, and a link to something titled “Time has come for Red Sox and Scott Boras to find common ground.” I think we can all guess who wrote that one. Does Nick get a percentage of these contracts? Talk about a dog who can’t let go of a bone.

    Jets fans should be more pissed about Parcells not wanting to go in there.

    Wasn’t he the boss there? The guy who didn’t steal money from a dying old man?  :lol:

    Is there a hit piece in the Globe today talking about the Sox alienating their best player over a couple million dollars? Can you imagine the headlines if the Pats did that? Of course since it IS the Globe I fully expect a hit piece on Mookie instead.

    It appears the NFL is going to have extra doctors on the sidelines for this Super Bowl for the concussion protocol thing. That’s not a controversy just waiting to happen. Especially if something benefits the Pats.

    Was reading through ITT’s conversation with that hipster milennial who was complaining about the Pats defense.

    Guy’s attitude is everything wrong with fandom wrapped in a neat little bow. “It’s ok for me to say the defense sucks when they give up a big play!”

    No, it’s not. At least in the sense of you being an actual fan and understanding how sports work. There’s no such thing as a perfect game equivalent in football. Teams are gonna for first downs and completions and all that. You being pissed off because the defense didn’t stop every single play is just you being a douche.

    It’s as if their lives are a permanent game-thread. Clueless assholes.

    If we’re talking about people who suck…..

    Since it’s Super Bowl week, that means every area of the internet that allows comments is infested by some people who feel the need to give pushback to the game’s hype. There are many of these types who are irritated by different things, which is fine I guess. But the absolute worst are the cliched, trolling Euro-dickheads who love to slag on the NFL and talk about how much the game sucks, and how degenerate the stupid Americans are for watching it, and how much better/tougher/cooler soccer or rugby is by comparison.

    No exaggeration – I want every single one of those know-nothing people to fucking die.

    He’s been a suspect since 1981, not sure why they’re trotting the case out again now. Can’t he just claim Alzheimer’s or something similar at this point, and refuse to answer any questions?

    My humble opinion is that he threw her off the boat (oops sorry, “yacht” :rollseyes: ) in a drunken, jealous rage and then screwed up by Ted Kennedy-ing any chance she had at survival. The poor woman died under circumstances that were literally her worst nightmare, as she was deathly afraid of being in water.  :ohmy:

    Actually it was Abraham who penned that “Boras Common Ground” article, not Nickles.   Yes, shocking.

    The 2 Bills show mentioned the possible Capers hire in 2000; if it had mentioned Donahoe too, Nick would been driven to tears, I’m sure.

    My reaction to Bedard’s Epic Display of Lacking Self-Awareness in his Daily Briefing (always free, somehow overpriced) was very similar to BB in the ’04 America’s Game as to why the Eagles weren’t playing hurry-up.

    Holden’s wiki manages to get board favorites dueling as a cause of death.

     

    According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s autopsy report, Holden was alone and intoxicated in his apartment in Santa Monica, California, on November 12, 1981, when he slipped on a rug, severely lacerating his forehead on a teak bedside table, and bled to death. Evidence suggests he was conscious for at least half an hour after the fall. He likely may not have realized the severity of the injury and did not summon aid, or was unable to call for help. His body was found four days later. The causes of death were given as “exsanguination” and “blunt laceration of scalp”. Rumors existed that he was suffering from lung cancer, which Holden himself had denied at a 1980 press conference.

    It’s pretty sad when JK gets asked about the Patriots hosting the Super Bowl, and he basically says there’s no chance because (all other concrete reasons aside) the other owners hate them and wouldn’t want to reward them with one.

    He tried to specifically deny it, but I don’t see what other conclusion you could draw based on what he said.

    But I’m sure the petty League vendetta that other people claim doesn’t exist is just a conspiratorial fever-dream delusion of Patriots fans.

    Zo And Diabeetle had Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg on, and Donnie was talking about “RKK” and all the nice stuff he’s done for him through the years.

    I can kinda see Kraft starfucking Marky Mark, but he even does it for the lesser Wahlberg, too?
