    After pummelling opponents all season, win #100 is a 1-0 game with the one run scored on a passed ball?!?

    I’ll take it.

    Now, onto today’s hot topic: did the 2018 Red Sox commit the cardinal sin of celebrating its entry to the playoffs, and if they did was it honorable?

    The monks from ESPN, BBBWA, and MarconiWatchers need to make sure nothing untoward happens and all achievements no matter how minor (e.g. first round of playoffs, Baseball writers’ faux Hall of Fame) are in no way trumpeted.

    I realize this is my personal hobbyhorse, but can someone take NFL Expert Insider Breer aside and tell him to look at the person he’s talking to and not sneaking nervous “How am I doin’?” glances to the camera constantly? Please?

    O.K., then. Get him off of TV.

    Dispeptic Thursday Continues!

    NBC is touting the Sunday Night Football contest as a War of the Gods. It can only be …

    0-1 NEW YORK Giants vs. 0-1 Dallas Cowboys.

    A Night Destined for Greatness!

    They should air it on Week 17 where it’ll be the War for the #1 Overall Pick.

    OK, #2 Overall Pick. We know Buffalo already has #1 reserved.

    There might be a reason for that tic

    Who would more hate the fact that they put “100 Wins!” on the scoreboard after the game?:  98.5 personnel or ITT

    Is there a reason the Celtics haven’t released Bird yet? I’m surprised there isn’t more outrage about it.

    Was thinking the same thing.  Maybe there’s something with him being hospitalized and they want more info?

    Boy that Andy Benoit sure knows a lot about football. Reading through his tweets is a real treat.

    Don’t hate the Steelers enough? Antonio Brown’s (5) kids are named Antonio Jr. (fine) Antanyah (JFC) Autonomy (fuck off) Ali (fine) and Apollo (eh..) all have instagram accounts, including the 1 year old, with 30K plus followers.  Bring on the goddamn nukes

    Also well worn territory, but I looked up all time leading receivers.  Of the top 25 in receptions, 7 have won rings, and 4 of those were in two sb (Harrison/Wayne and Holt/Bruce) 11 of the top 25 never went to a SB.  Weaponzz.

    Is it pronounced “Be-NOYT” as in Benjamin or Joan, or “Ben-WAH,” as in …………….. those spheroids used for (ahem) personal pleasuring (back me up here, BiLA!)  ;-)

    These self appointed film watchers are the worst.  Couple that with the vocabulary of the drunk convict from In Living Color and you get Benoit.  Also, lives with his cats in Idaho.

    I like how ESPN is pimping the ‘Marrone hasn’t watched the Super Bowl in 40 years!’ angle like it’s fresh.  He already gave you that info in January.

    Just wait until Autonomy understands what his name means – “Mom, Dad, I hear what you’re saying, but you can’t tell me what to do. I’m Autonomy. I get to govern myself. You gave me this name. These are the consequences.”

    The Athletic sent Fluto to China for the Bruins’ preseason games. What did BSJ do with their hockey guy?

    They signed a guard to a two way contract this week, so they have his potential replacement lined up

    He caught a ride on the Bruins charter so that reduced costs to The Athletic.  I’m sure the NHL picked up the nut on the charter and comped certain media outlets seeing this is a promotional event.

    Statement from the team post arraignment is that domestic violence is handled at the league-level so the team is hands-off.

    They let him expense his lo mien watching the games from here.

    How bad is it that, until last night, I didn’t know Eck had thrown a no hitter?

    The moss was groomed to perfection, the cheese was easy and the pitches had some hair down there.
