    Shocking that Tanguay couldn’t make it into the office.

    Toaster oven timer goes off while I’m changing the battery of the smoke detector in the basement, that was a fun few seconds before I realized.

    7715, if it was 7717 I was about to call BS going up exactly 10 a day.

    Who is signing up right now? Craig said the Celts aren’t worth the time right now, the Bruins coverage is threatening to be lessened, the Revs have no coverage.

    Like stocking up on milk and bread, people worried about being snowed in and becoming desperate for entertainment. Desperate.

    Places guaranteed to be open during blizzards:  Dunkins and private managed hockey rinks.  They’re not pissing away $235/hr when all they have to do is keep the door unlocked and lights on.

    The Vikings reportedly offer Cousin 3 years $84 million. My guess is they won’t see the value out of that deal. It’s your move Jets to get him up over $30 million a year guaranteed.

    Cousins will be the GOAT of getting paid when all is said and done.

    What does Kirk Cousins do that Case Keenum didn’t didn’t do for them last year?

    #120813

    What’s interesting here is people think they’re just a QB away. That for all that Keenum did for the team, he was the reason they didn’t go all the way.

    Hey, Channel 5: Less of the traffic lady and Harvey Leonard, more of Cindy Fitz and Kelly Ann Cicciccallicciiccio. It’s not that complicated. Jesus.

    Channel 25 rolling out TWL and Wrobelewski. Approve! TWL is a force of nature.

    The dumbass at Channel 4 who decided to put Pamela Gardner outside under 17 layers of all-weather gear should be fired. And then shot.

    They have to disguise Gardner whenever she leaves the building on Soldiers Field Road, lest weather-bunny-super-stalker Steve MacDonald get on her trail.   :lol:

    So the Vikings were roundly praised for trading a 1st and a 4th for Bradford before last season. Now I will assume they will be roundly praised for throwing $84 million at Cousins. “Going for it” and whatnot. That’s a lot of capital to spend on the QB spot. I wonder how much we’ll hear about the Bradford trade in the media euphoria for the Vikings juggernaut.

    This may be better slotted in Minor Personal Gripes, but the Main Board is slow today, so …

    The Globe’s obit/featurette on Charles Sarkis does nothing to combat the notion that the paper is still filled with petty people nursing decades-long grudges of dubious value. Sarkis built a tremendous local restaurant business, continually introducing new concepts (Joe’s American, Papa-Razi) and was relentless on questions of quality and guest service. I can’t afford Abe & Louie’s, but IMO, every other Back Bay Restaurants location went downhill after he sold out to the Texas (?) conglomerate.

    In that atmosphere, why dredge up the man’s father’s less-than-glowing past? In the third paragraph, no less. There has to be some sort of payback there.

    If the Dolphins are going to overpay for anyone, I’m glad it’s Amendola cashing the checks.

    Are the same people who mocked the Amendola signing and ridiculed his durability now going to tell us this is a huge loss and a terrible decision by the Patriots?

    Channel 5 just went with an Ironhead Shortstop Headshot Lineup graphic of all the reporters out in the storm.

    Bradford was the 1/4 season MVP in 2016, so definitely worth it.

    3 years of fully guaranteed money on Cousins sounds crazy.    I hope he implodes under Zim’s brutal honesty and the Vikings get fucked.

    I hadn’t put it together that Keenum played for Kubiak who is now a personnel advisor to Drunken Elway with the Texans and Joseph was on that staff as well.  The contract is supposedly a short term deal bridging to another quarterback, which they don’t have.  Sounds like a great plan.  I hope it blows up in their faces and Elway contracts cirrhosis

    Uh oh….the rumor is Solder’s about to be offered his dream job. The Giants are interested. How can you say no to a gentlemen like Mara?

    Off topic but a few years ago my neighborhood held a street carnival with some auction items. One item was a Patriots signed football. No other description. Only two names on the sign up sheet so as the time runs out, I put my name down and “steal” a football signed by the Pats for $170. I’m feeling pretty good about myself. I ripped off my egghead sucker neighbors.

    I get the ball and it was only signed by Nate Solder. Still not a terrible buy. It’s for the kids after all but score one for my egghead neighbors.

    I got a David Givens signed football.

    As a wash I got a Willie McGinest one from the same event then a week later I went to a Rodney Harrison signing and had him sign the SI with him on the cover closing the SB with an INT.

    Keenum’s deal supposedly 2/36 no mention on the guaranteed money.

    12 and change per year on Butler?
