    Down goes Team Canada.

    Tough week for our friends up north, indeed.

    Also, a friendly reminder for the 0.2% who care: ManU-Chelsea kicks off at 9:00 AM on Sunday.

    When Lindsey Vonn reties from skiing she’s still going to post those workout videos of herself on the internet, right?

    I read Thornton’s post on Reimer coming back to WEEI. The part below is pretty amazing. This is what the most accomplished athlete in team sports has to put up with from a bunch of talent-less douche bags. Sports radio/media is such a vast wasteland of unentertaining emptiness. Empty word after empty word. These people that are fans of the hotakerz and not of the sport are insane. A miserable cesspool of mutual suck. They live in some alternate reality where they are “friends” with these worthless dopes. Where their “voice” is heard. Delusional doesn’t begin to cover it. The media shits all over the athletes and whine when they don’t make their jobs even easier then they are, if that’s even possible. I really hate them all for the attempts to ruin the fun.

    After Brady has been called – at various times by various hosts – a cheater, a liar, a PED user, a snakeoil salesman ripping his fans off with $200 pajamas, a weirdo and a petulant diva. He’s been accused of running to ownership over Jimmy Garoppolo causing a “rift” with his coach. He’s been accused of ripping off Best Buddies to buy luxury items for his son’s private school. He’s been compared to Tom Cruise and his fitness center compared to Scientology. He’s been mocked, derided, denounced, slandered, libeled and called words you never heard in the Bible.

    I’m sure he’s taking it like a real trooper.

    He probably needed to take the whole week off from work.

    If I worked with him, I’d tell him to take the week off. And every other week too. And I’d probably shoot myself.

    He wouldn’t do that. He thinks he’s tough like hockey players.

    Saw that Al Jeffery played the whole year with a torn rotator cuff.

    Was he on the injury report every week or is this another Dick Sherman case of “well, some rules don’t matter really”?

    Of course when Bill put Brady on the report with the “right shoulder – probable” for 3 years he was a gigantic asshole that needed to be keel hauled for such an egregious mockery of the reporting rules.

    There are some moistened (and not by the morning dew) shoes on the Sox fan sites around J.D. Martinez’ still not passing the Red Sox’ physical.  Due diligence, or is the deal about to blow sky high?   :dry:

    Read a couple of articles on Shani Davis after his last race.  Now you would think his last races wouldn’t be newsworthy, guy finished off the podium in both events, one of them something like 16th.  Not to mention that he comes off a bit abrasive.  Thankfully, both espn and si run stories about how he blew off the media after the race.  The SI guy frames it like it was some last great chance for him to connect with the fans, the espn guy talks about how Davis told them after the 1500 don’t ask about the flag bearer bullshit I’m here to talk about skating, and of course the media has to ask the tough questions about the flag stuff.  Then the media got ‘tactical’ after Davis blew right by them after the 1000 and asked to speak to his coach instead, to which Davis told his coach to tell them to fuck off.  The media should have their own award ceremony/medals for their stellar performances.

    Whether it’s baseball or speed skating, Boston or PyeongChang, the media sucks.

    What’s the point of Reimer’s apology other than to check a box to get his massive”talent” back on the shit show that is EEI? He meant what he said. He’s only sorry about not being on the air. The worthless prick dreamed of being on EEI his whole life. What a waste. Empty words from an empty hottake douche.

    Both Cafardo and Bobo Halloran are truly upset. Nick can’t unleash the first interview with new Red Sox [DH? 1B? RF? ] Martinez until he actually is an official member. Until then, Martinez’ answers to “How do you think you’ll like Fenway Park as a hitter?” and “You already know David Price. Did he talk to you about the atmosphere here?” (Nick will insert “… who had his struggles with the media last season…” afterward, when someone at the Globe casually observes that Nick could have made the questions a little less buddy-buddy.)

    Speaking of Bobo, he’s entered the race to be the least able to connect with anyone under 40 currently being waged by the sports media who also fancy themselves as “hip.” On tonight’s 6 pm Ed Harding Show, he deftly let loose with a “Like Stella, he want to get his groove back.” Not sure if he referred to the 1998 film or the 1996 novel.

    Shank still leads the week with “Richie Havens beard.” Can a Walter Brennan shout out be far behind?

    Was it Buckley who went IHOP with Reimer and his father and then pronounced him a true fan and honest reporter? Next we’ll be hearing about Tanguay volunteering at soup kitchens.   :weei:

    Buckley would work that into Tony C., the Real McCoy, who went to St. Mary’s of Lynn.

    You always hear about the infrastructure built for the Olympics and how it doesn’t get used again and it’s a waste.  What about these ridiculous broadcast studios?  At least you might use an arena again or have World Cup type races.  When the hell are they ever going to use that Fortress of Solitude studio again?
