    Not going to bother trying to find the tech thread- any recommendations for a fitbit type thing that is good for running/basketball and isn’t a watch?

    Is Brown saying Fatty plagiarized here?

    “Writing up the info you got from Matthew Slater” – what does that mean?

    I only care about honorable numbers.

    I think thats what he’s saying. Brown maybe had the quote and PK used without attribution. Makes it seem like Slater said it to PK.

    Didn’t Washburn, who I generally have no problem with, write something a couple years ago saying the Celts should free up some numbers because free agents won’t be able to grab their favorite digits because there’s so many retired ones here?

    God, not Andy Hart. Then again…’God, not anyone currently talking or writing in or near Boston’.

    Then again, I’ve quit listening, why do I care anymore?

    Ask him on Twitter. It’s the only place he seems to exist.

    I see former Bruins’ coach – and Adolph Hitler doppelganger – Dave Lewis got fired as coach of a team in the middle of the World Hockey Championship.    They still have games to play and canned him anyway.

    Seems to be the story of his career.  Every step of the way it is another kampf..

    You know Gerry wishes Reimer were still alive so they could have gone over the Met Gala this morning.

    Maybe the suspension made WEEI management realize nobody cared for that little shit to begin with.

    Speaking of little shits, I heard yesterday that Adam Jones had a kid over the weekend.

    Former ESPN president John Skipper, who resigned in December amid what he later said was an attempted extortion plot by a cocaine dealer, has been hired as Executive Chairman of a London-based sports media company called Perform Group

    His comp package is loosely defined as “a bunch of hookers and cocaine”

    That sounds like a Lou Lamoriello move.

    I watched the first half of the game at a bar and the tv next to the Celtics was Sportscenter. Matthew Berry had a segment on top 10 fantasy QBs. Jimmy G was number 10, Luck was 9.

    Also noticed Berry has some hipster doofus sidekick with sleeve tats and that shaved sides with a big, wavy part haircut.

    All signs are pointing to Andy Hart getting a full time gig at WEEI replacing Death Cat. I guess he’ll work cheap but this is the best they can do? Really?

    They don’t care enough to do better.

    I think Mike may want to stick to football.

    I actually heard Sal Pal talking 76ers on Mike & Not Mike this morning. Some weird ESPN initiative?

    This and Lefty’s post about Dave Lewis* going back-to-back had me thinking about the phrase “there’s never ‘too many men on the ice’.”

    (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)    ;-)   :smile:

     

    *Known during his Bruins’ tenure for his team’s sloppy on-the-fly changes and frequent TMM penalties.  Hmmm, “sloppy on-the-fly changes”?   :pk:   :lol:

    That’s because Sal is based in Philadelphia and is, through osmosis, an expert on all the teams in that city, not just the Eagles. If you have a question about the 76ers, Phillies, Flyers, Union, Wings, Fusion, all Temple and Villanova sports or Rocky, Sal can speak authoritatively on any of them.

    I wonder how the NBA guys at ESPN feel about things like this or Schefter saying he learned everything he needed to know about the sport in his spare time.

    Someone should save this one:

     

    First-round draft pick Sam Darnold will lead the New York Jets to greatness, according to CEO Christopher Johnson, who said Tuesday the addition of the former USC star will be remembered as a turning point in franchise history.

    “I think people are going to look back — I honestly think they’re going to look back 20 years from now and say this is the moment the Jets shifted into a new year, that they became a great team,” Johnson told reporters at a charity event in Manhattan.

    David Price scratched from tomorrow’s start, sent back to Boston for more tests on his pitching hand.

    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

    I would not be upset by an insurance buy out of that contract.

    SMASH CUT TO:

    Sam Darnold is on the sidelines in a comically all covering FULL BODY CAST.

    Christian Hackenberg is on the field, receives the snap, and is SMOTHERED by the entire Bills’ defense.

    Fans in the stands have paper bags on their heads. They BOO.

    ANNOUNCER: And that seals it! A 3-13 season for the Jets. We only hope that Darnold will be able to throw again by next year.

    Cut to:

    Christopher Johnson in the owner’s box, dejected.

    CHRIS: It was supposed to be our time.
