    I blame the unlikable Red Sox.

    How come the article doesn’t begin with “Former Knick”?

    Charles Oakley is back in trouble with the law.

    TMZ has reported that the Knicks legend was arrested at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Sunday after allegedly attempting to pocket a bet he made after realizing he was going to lose.

    “Former Patriot” Kellen Winslow Jr. uses Clark Kent disguise ploy to try to force hung jury.

    Florio’s right about what Winslow and his lawyer are up to, but this is a terrible way to write about it:

    (Coincidentally (or not), the Kellen Winslow who appeared in court on Wednesday doesn’t look much like the Kellen Winslow we’ve become accustomed to seeing over the years. Instead, he looks more like Steve Urkel.)

    The accompanying story says Mrs. and Mr. Pizzuti will be there, too, but no mention of that in the tweet. Presuming “Billionaire summer camp” is meant as a pejorative designed to project an “elitist, out of touch” persona on Kraft (with Redstone ostensibly included as cover for targeting Kraft).

    One more Twitter item:

    I’m sure this will be fair, rational and measured, with no insinuations whatsoever that the Patriots knew they were employing a serial killer.

    What possible new angle could they come up with on Hernandez “saga” that hasn’t already been beaten to death? The whole story is in that tweet. Click-bait garbage used to further pimp out and squander the good will associated with the ‘spotlight’ brand.

    Phil Mickelson really should have been drawn and quartered.  Now, everybody is doing this stuff.

    I heard on the radio last night that this is 3rd streak of 8 straight wins or more for the Red Sox this season.  Pretty amazing.  For a variety of reasons, I’m at the park the next 3 days.  If this thing hits 12, I may declare this a likable (even lovable) group of guys.

    Is that replacing the Season Ticket podcast with Chris Gasper that didn’t last six months?

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    I’m going Saturday with seats in the Samuel Adams Pavilion. :smile: I don’t suppose I can get a Celebration Ale there.   :lol:

    EDIT: Have never sat there, or in the Budweiser Beer Garden or whatever was there before. (A friend of mine works for Boston Beer Co., and he’s hosting.) Anyone have any stories about drinking watching the game drinking there?

    I love that Creepy Papa John dropped the n-bomb on a conference call with a marketing agency the purpose of which was to repair his public image.

    How could a Boston Globe/Public radio “public/private partnership” fail?  No way.  :wag:

    Tuned into the Rockies last night and they were annihilating the Diamondbacks, it was something like 14-1 in the 4th inning.  Diamondbacks started trotting positional players out to pitch by the 5th, Rockies pitcher hit a 400+ foot home run off of some utility type slob.  Was thinking I’ve never seen positional players come in to pitch that early in a game, turns out the last time they came in that early or earlier was in a game in ’79.  Naturally it was wholly unlikable.

    Here’s sort of a tomato cans test from National Football Post (link). As part of the article’s intro:

    It’s no secret that the New England Patriots have pretty much owned the AFC East for the past decade. However, did you know that the rest of the AFC East have averaged fewer than 8 wins in the same time frame?

    This is, of course, misleading. Once you use the calculator on the page and punch in a successful team and its corresponding division, you find that all division averages minus the top team are fewer than eight wins (Colts vs AFC South, Steelers vs. AFC North, Packers vs. NFC North, etc.).

    We should sucker Shank to that page, suggest it reinforces his tomato cans theory, then once he cites it, pull the rug out.

    Spoke to a Denver friend this morning and he said the fight between Bowlen’s daughter and the “trust” that’s running the Broncos is about to turn especially ugly and vicious. It will make Haywood/Mrs. Y vs. Buddy LeRoux look like a pillow fight. That’s a shame.

    Also a shame: He also said that Invesco’s naming rights have expired and no one has come forward to become the new corporate face of the stadium. They may have to call it by a generic name this season. Kind of like when the FleetCenter went nameless for a year or so before it became TD (BankNorth) Garden. I suggested they call it “Mile High Field at Mile High.”

    If it’s where I think it is, it’s a pretty good experience as long as you don’t count on being laser focused on the game.  Room to roam around, good views of downtown, cool to look down on the monster.

    The just put a banner up a couple of days ago – currently it is called Broncos Stadium at Mile High.

    I mentioned the ownership fight a month or so ago.  Currently it is run by a trust that Bowlen set up.  The trust, which consists of 3 members, will make the final decision on which kid to hand the team over to.  One of the kids went public, I think it was Beth Bowlen, at the beginning of June out of nowhere saying she felt she was ready to take over.  I think Drunken Elway and few others tweeted out support.  The trust very publicly slapped her down, said she wasn’t ready, she’s never met with the trust even though she had been invited to meet with them, and she was relieved of her duties with the team and she knows why.  There is another daughter who worked for the league for a few years but now works for McKinsey, but she’s only 28 although she seems to be quietly working toward running the team.  I think her name is Brittany.  One or two of the other kids also publicly supported Beth.  The one son who they thought would take over was a total drunken wreck, I think he got arrested.  Naturally he’d be a perfect fit.  Another sold off his ownership so he could go party the proceeds away.

    He can escape this if he plays it right. “Peyton uses this word all the time.”

    The Brazzers Bowl has a nice sound to it.

    Clear violation of BSMW protocol. Take a lap, CS. Although I’m not sure anybody is there to monitor you.
