    Marc Maron interviews the SportsGal?  A real meeting of the beta male minds.

     

    Actually, Maron called himself an Alpha Pussy on his last special. That fits

    Imagine the purse swinging among the Boston media if a fight ever broke out in the press box at a Sox game, now or “back in the day?”

    My money would be on Jackie the Cock to win via chokeslam.

    In an exclusive interview, the would-be franchise QB goes deep on the NCAA, contemplates the fate of the planet and answers the critics who think he’s radioactive.

    Kirk’s a tough one to reconcile. Fifty percent of the time he comes down on the right side of the issue, and he can absolutely destroy people, such as Tomase a few weeks back. But he’s a raging egomaniac who believes the ratings justify all means. And he seems to hold no particular convictions, so a belief today is a nonbelief tomorrow if the ratings winds are blowing in that direction. And I can’t justify anybody who claims “Boston needs Dan Shaughnessy.” Plus he’s as thin skinned as the rest of them, carrying grudges forever.

    His eventual downfall will be just as enjoyable as anybody’s.

    Drove by a house in my town flying a Canadian flag from the porch with a hockey net set up in the driveway.

    A tribute to the Humboldt Broncos, no doubt.

    August ’16. Good job;

    After reading that SI column on Josh Rosen I’d like to short that stock. A look at me douchebag at the age of 19.

    It gets worse as it goes along and it starts off pretty bad. Love stanford wasn’t interested in his shtick.

    Lotta depth

    There’s much more to Rosen than playing ball and being a bro. He’s on track to graduate with a degree in economics in three years and holds a 3.2 GPA. The books in his bedroom range from Wolf of Wall Street to Unbroken to Breakfast of Champions. “I hate reading,” he says. “But I’m trying to force myself because studies have shown that it’s literally the only way to matter-of-factly boost your IQ.” He envies Luck for having the “raw IQ” to graduate from Stanford with a degree in architectural engineering. He looks up to actor Leonardo DiCaprio for his environmental stances and to Tesla CEO Elon Musk “because he doesn’t really care about money.”

    He can’t blow his throwing shoulder out fast enough for my liking

    “I come from a wealthy, affluent, educated family,” Rosen says. “I mean, not like get-a-Lambo-for-my-16th-birthday- wealthy, but like, affluent.”

    Nothing will be saved. All will be lost. And our new onion-headed sad emoticon is unable to convey the depth of that loss. -10/22/25 (sic) Daily Thread

    Very well done.

    This tragedy cuts to the core of the sport and the whole of Canada. But you don’t have to know them to mourn them. Their deaths are agonizingly relatable. The bus is a way of life in sports, at almost every level—from arena to arena, school to school, city to city. Those rides can be tedious, but also essential—there are conversations, songs, movies, naps, jokes. Friendships are made. Talk to a pro athlete, and what they often recall about their early days is not what happened in the games, but those long, humble bus rides.

    Damn.

    The pastor slayed me:

    Brandow made reference to Psalm 23:4: “That’s all that went through my head, ‘This is it, this is the valley of death, this is the valley of darkness.’ And all I saw was darkness. All I saw was hurt and anguish and fear and confusion. And I had nothing. Nothing. I’m a pastor, I’m supposed to have something.”

    Hated UCLA games the past couple years.   Part of it was the defense, part of it was him.    Many similarities to Stanford in the late 70s/early 80s with Elway.

    So what you are telling me Buck, is that Michael Kay is some sort of weirdo?

    “Kay and Mad Dog are experts on the New York sports experience. Kay, I happen to know, can recite the entire screenplay from “The Pride of the Yankees,” this from watching the classic Lou Gehrig biopic hundreds of times growing up the Bronx.”

    Kay was born in 1961. VCRs started becoming widely available in the mid-70s. It’s conceivable the Kay family could have had one and a copy of the movie. Or maybe some theater in the Bronx just showed it regularly. Still, it doesn’t seem like a movie that would lend itself to a lot of quotes that you can use in social settings. You could probably make something out of the quotes on the IMDB page (link), but seriously. Michael Kay, see some different movies.

    Speaking of which, that reminds me of Shank’s fraudulent lead to his rabbit-droppings column on Sunday: “Picking up the pieces while trying to thaw out from the Fenway opener.” Does anyone believe that Shank was anywhere other than the protected confines of the Press Box? Him and Barnicle, True Fans and Solid with the Common Man. Shams.

    OK, “Pride” is a motion picture about a sports figure. Got it. Wouldn’t an “expert on the New York sports experience” maybe … go outside? Go to a game? PLAY a game? Knowing a movie can happen anywhere. I’m sure there’s someone out there who can recite “The Big Lebowski” or even “Spinal Tap.” Does that make them an expert on ransoms, rugs, or rock?

    Didn’t think so.

    Richie Incognito announced his retirement. He made a reference to the HOF in his tweet and I saw Lil Jerry commented on his HOF chances on Barstool. Did I somehow miss the greatness of this guy? I recall him being a disappointment and an asshole followed by several good years, but HOF? At first glance it just seems insane but maybe I am way off.

    EDIT: The HOF reference/announcement was in a Vic Carruci tweet

    Stan Grossfeld did another photo essay in TBP’s Sports section today; this one is about people who buy and wear Bruins’ gamers to the Garden and on the streets. Two of the fans he interviewed came from Canada (one from Edmonton, one from London, Ont.). I can only imagine Papa Bruin firing up his Twitter to complain that the loyal B’s fans from Dracut Groton are being forgotten, ignored and marginalized.  :dry:

    Cold as could be out there tonight.

    Looked like the NYY contingent had a pretty big presence. They thought they were coming for the Sox when Judge hit a homer to make it 4-1. All it did was spoil Sales’ shutout.

    Thank heavens it was such a blowout. I’m not comfortable at all with the Nunez & Holt combo in the middle. The diminishment in range from Xander & Pedroia can be measured in feet, not inches.
