    This changing the catch rule in the Superbowl is infuriating. The only thing that warms my black heart is that the NFL is a dead man walking. Slowly but surely, they are strangling the golden goose.

    Man, I thought I moved on from the Super Bowl. What fucking bullshit!

    Also, the Patriots website is an abortion.

    It’s horrible. I don’t think they’ve updated in forever. Especially the season ticket holder account section. That is embarrassing. They are always patting themselves on the back for their multimedia stuff but I guess they don’t really use the website.

    A little late on this, but too good to overlook:

    Tooling around doing errands over the weekend, two of the sock puppets on one of the sports stations concluded their discussion of some incident that happened months ago and was a peripheral dust-up to begin with by saying:

    Dolt #1: “Well, I know that a lot of people says that’s done with and let’s move on but …”

    Dolt #2: “Well, WE’RE still talking about it!”

    Dolt #1:  “That’s right. People are still fascinated by this.”

    The ability to somehow tie “WE’RE talking about it” to “people are fascinated” is so mammothly delusional that it leaves me speechless.

    And as I wrote this, I realize I can identify anyone on sports broadcasting in this town as Dolt #1 or Dolt #2 and the story would be equally plausible. They’re all Dolts.

    There are a fair number of Philly fans around me and I’ve tried to be gracious to this point but that’s over. Somehow the NFL is more rigged and corrupt than a league who had refs throwing games to win bets.

    I have a buddy that’s a big Eagles fan. I haven’t seen him since last summer (built me a deck).  He’s doing the same for my neighbor, saw him yetserday, took my good natured ribbing.  I wish I had known that about the making it up as we go along shit.  Fuck the NFL.

    re: FWL’s post, there are a couple of weekend shows, one I think local to 103.7 (not Cordischi and Rooke talking about Brown football :ohmy: ) that combine the worst elements of Mustard and Johnson’s “we’re only on once a week for 45 minutes so let’s recap old shit” with third generation Felger youth (Jones youth?) nonsense.  Utter garbage.

    Don’t have a Visa, so I usually pay by cash or check. Do you think they’d maybe have the snail mail address for the ticket office anywhere on the website?

    Trying to figure out what “built me a deck” is a RI euphemism for.

    Holy shit, the ticket office is the worst.

    Go through phone system hell to hear “all representatives are busy, call back later”. :lol:

    With the season ticket waiting list the Pats have I doubt they put much effort into making the ticket office a ‘shining jewel’ of customer service. If you don’t want your tickets they can simply give them to somebody else.

    Point of order, Mr. Walker.   The BSMW style book requires that the erstwhile sports radio host from Rhode Island is to be referred to as “Scott Cordischi who hasn’t been caught with a hooker in like “XX” days.”

    Not sure if this has been posted previously, but it appears that The Tilted Kilt on Brookline Ave is being replaced by a Fenway version of West End Johnnies. [link]

    :lol:I’m surprised it hasn’t entered the lexicon more here, especially in relation to directions- “Go past the old Leo’s*, I think it’s some hippy place now, bang a right, go over three blocks, right past where Cordischi was getting a blowie…”

     

     

    *hasn’t been Leo’s since before the person receiving the directions was born

    Continuing the thought of Jonathan trying to reinvent  himself as Pizzuti Pie, I submit the following future image of the Patriots’ leader:

    I think WW2 felger alluded to it, and I heard a teaser in my car before I got home- did F%M re-litigate the Tatum trade (“who won?” :weei: ) based on the fact that Fultz just played again? Like, the only way the Celtics could have got the better end of the deal if Fultz was such a basket case he just pulled a Royce White?

    These are Peter’s people:

    CURMUDGEONLY AND PROUD OF IT
    Becoming an old curmudgeon are you Mr. King? I can say as a retired road warrior, I’ve seen the same. A lot of inconsiderate behavior out there. I’ve never objected to the short phone conversation while dining alone. Loud incessant chattering while dining can be annoying. I remember being in a restroom while a man in a stall was having a conversation while making unmistakable loud noises while on the toilet.  Must have been his brains exiting his body.
    —Roger

    I’m not trying to be a grandmother about this. All I’m trying to say is I find it wrong to be on the phone throughout dinner, and I find out more wrong to be on the phone in a public restroom.

    I know, water is wet, but fer chissake, the difference in articles between a professional reporter (despite the dorky hat) and a mittens-losing whiner has never been more obvious.  From the same conversation, the guy on BB’s right comes up with an engaging question and gets a thoughtful answer that provides the reader with perspective & info not previously discussed.  Meanwhile, the guy on his left complains about boorish behavior and the fact that he won’t give different answers to the same questions he’s heard a million times.  Ponderous indeed.

    Christ, look at Volin.  Just a complete slouch, shirt a size too small, pallid flesh and gut spilling out.  His grandfathers are either spinning in their graves or looking forward to doing so

    Five hundred years ago somewhere in the Volhynian Oblast, sitting around a fire in a mud hut, an old man lifted a crooked finger and pointed to a fuzzy headed, beady eyed, fat body and muttered “schlub.”
