    So other teams do the local team a supposed favor by knocking out the teams that ‘owned’ them, and you shit on them for doing what they then should be doing?

    I’m pretty sure the Jets did the Steelers a pretty big favor by knocking out the Pats back in 2010.

    Or the Jaguars defeating the Broncos in the divisional round in ’96. It’s the playoffs, christ look at the NCAA tournament and how many supposed giants fall making the path supposedly easier for the eventual champion.

    Why, yes, everyone turns off March Madness after the first weekend if a top seed or two gets knocked off.

    So the Bruins run isn’t legit according to Coach Betard since Tampa Bay and Wash decided to suck and lose to shittier teams.

    Can someone explain to Coach Betard that I can hear this nonsense from 6-12 daily news on 2 radio stations for free so why would I spend a nickel to read it.

    Irv Levin came to mind when the tributes to Havlicek were being made. Forgot that Peggy Lipton’s father was part of the “Celtics bum owner of the year” club.

    For some reason cannot link a NYT article about Levin that chronicles him owning and swapping the Celtics for the Buffalo Braves, who became the Clippers. Good reading.

    The absurdity of Almost-A-Coach’s “logic” just dawned on me: The Bruins defeated the Blue Jackets and have a 2-0 lead on the Hurricanes. The Blue Jackets and Hurricanes, in turn, eliminated the Lightning and Capitals. In Coach Craig’s world, this means the Bruins would have no chance against Tampa Bay or Washington, even though they are beating the teams who beat the teams who “own them.” Put another way, it’s just easier to call Bedard stupid.

    Bruins’ Cup wins in 1970 and 1972 are tainted because they didn’t have to go through Montreal.  /Bedard

    Why would anyone pay a cent to read his shit?  What a miserable anjerk. Exactly why is he in the sportswriting business, anyway?

    Always gets me that the stoner next to Wooderson grows up to be Flemmi in Black Mass.

    I was cooking last night and flipped on EEI (where is the old Eddie Andelman Sunday night show?), and someone I’ve never heard of was ragging about how bad the Red Sox are and how they won’t be able to sustain this or that.  I lasted about 90 seconds and off to podcast land. So negative; Pitino was right.

    Pedroia shut down again. Props to him for trying to come back and earn the rest of that huge contract, but this could be all she wrote.

    Red Sox play the Padres August 23-25 in San Diego. It would be a shame if something happened to Manny Machado, at the plate or in the field, during that series.

    Wasn’t he also Richie’s missing brother on “Happy Days”    They wrote him out because of his overtly Nazi tendencies.

    “Oh, sure, they get to deal with Jet Blue because Pan Am and Eastern folded up.   Typical Bruins, taking the easy way.” – Bedard.

    If they wanted to show how tough they were they’d fly a 737 Max 8

    Crean is the Harbaugh brother-in-law. It flew under my radar that he went to Georgia.

    Pretty weird hire, a 66 year old career college coach.  My only thought is they like Sexton enough and they’ll have a top 4 or whatever pick coming in.

    Crean made his bones with that Wade team at Marquette.  Had a decent Indiana team one year.  Other than that he just yells and spits and sweats a lot.

    Judge rules all video in Kraft jerk off case is inadmissible as wrongfully obtained.

    Their case is destroyed.    He can claim he got a regular massage, the masseuse won’t say different and there is nothing the prosecution can do about it.

    This should end the rhetoric, I trust.

    Here’s a good example of what we deal with around here. Felger cites Shank of all people writing a positive article saying it looks like the Sox are moving forward. They are only 3 behind.

    Mazz on the other hand is having none of it. Still haven’t recovered and could loss 4 in a row at any time.

    Of course Pete will say he should still publicly admit guilt and ask for the stiffest punishment from Goodell imaginable, and not say a word.

    Have to imagine Integrity Goodell will still give Kraft “stiff” punishment.  If he doesn’t, the PR from all the Patriot haters will be bad.  If he does spank Kraft, Goodell only alienates Pats fans, who already hate him anyway.

    Shank called the judge a “fanboy” yet?

    I almost feel bad for the Deadspin crew. They invested so much time and energy in this case and were really, really looking forward to seeing that video. This has to be like the Super Bowl against the Falcons all over again for them. Victory seemed like it was in the bag and they ended up with nothing but bitterness.

    Oh, I think Deadspin, et al, will get the video.   I think the cops have been so shaky throughout that I have little doubt someone in the PD or the prosecutors office will leak the tape within the week.

    I hope this happens and Kraft goes scorched earth Daenerys suing the cops, the DA, deadspin, everyone.
