    Hubbuch admitting he’s a bullshit artist:

    Sure, the job involved making a lot of mountains out of molehills for the sake of a splashy back page, but it fit my style. And many of those angles and headlines are truly funny, welcomed by an audience that’s smarter than it gets credit for. Even a lot of the athletes I covered appreciated the schtick.

    Where’s that from?

    Deadspin. Hubbuch wrote a column for them that went online last night. They’ve doubled down on their hatred towards the Patriots since Trump got elected.

    Ok it was in that article. I didn’t want to give him a click.

     

    Wait, what?

    Anybody who works in insurance or HVAC know what a “3p tech” is?

    I think he’s eliminated food from his diet, just straight scotch.

    I want Butler to say with the Patriots just so Giardi looks more like a fool than usual.  He’s had a Felger/Mazz-like streak of being wrong about everything.

    The Patriots offseason maneuverings have been masterful.

    Yet so many idiots don’t get that, and criticize them. Mindroasting.

    Deadspin pushed the heck out of that story. Normally, they’ll have links to three recent/popular stories at the top of their home page and you can scroll down the page to see the rest. For this story, they had just the title and graphic, larger than their usual banner stories, across the top of page. That was the case from when the story was launched yesterday until this morning. Can you imagine believing that the arrival of Bart Hubbuch and his BS stories is worthy of that treatment? He’s their Shockmaster.

    Those #FenwayWeather people should just be thankful Lucchino is out of the picture.

    Callahan is being weird on this Hernandez is gay rumor.

    The Globe sucks, but what would their agenda be here? That gay people can’t be murderers? If anything, I think they’d gleefully take pleasure in tying Hernandez to the Patriots for a few more days.

    And why would the Herald also hold back on reporting it?

    I haven’t been following the story in either local paper, but the national press is all over the gay/bi angle. It’s made the story even more notorious because now all the gossip rags are covering it.

    One thing that surprised me is that apparently, the high school BF testified before the grand jury in the Lloyd case. It’s starting to look like Screechy was right when she said it’s hardly been a secret.

    I don’t even really understand where there is much of a story.

    Hernandez is gay? Hmm..it didn’t seem like he was. Now what?  What’s next? He was a NFL player and murderer. If true, he’s now a gay NFL player and murderer. I just don’t see any big story angle.

    The gay/bi rumors keep his name in the news longer than that of the dead Rooney, which pissed Peter King off and makes me happy.

    What we are finding out is Odin Lloyd said insensitive sexual comments and paid for it. Odin should have learned this through his Semi Pro Football League’s diversity program.

    Is it Tomase level accurate on the report right now?

    I can’t stop reading it. Some credit to the rando who tweeted that the game is canceled setting off a series of questions and recriminations.

    Maybe he should have stuck around and said he bumped off Lloyd due to Lloyd using homosexual slurs. Globe would have been on his side.

    Rappaport reporting on one of St Urbs cornerbacks being suspected of rape.

    Didnt Breer tell us that Urbs boys only go bad when they go to the NFL?

    Bert’s going with teams knew about it this morning and are gathering facts.  Don’t rush to judgement.

    #98326

    Bart Hubbuch and Bob Ley. I’m sure this will be a sober and rational take.

    1PM Eastern.  Like Coach Bedard’s speaking engagement.  I assume all the unemployed are busy being barraged with ambulance chaser/annuity ads while rubbing one out to the soft core Cooking with Giada.

    I figured Coach Betard would have plently of offers from teams looking for is insight.

    They way he speaks to the unwashed you would think he’s an expert and can give BB a run for his money.
