In a rush of masochism, I listened to Trenni and Tomase this weekend. Trenni’s possibly the dumbest media person in Boston, even worse than Tanguay or Butchie. Every, and I mean every, take she had was formulated by what somebody else had previously said on TV or the radio. She started a lot of her positions with “It seems like they were saying that…”Look at this passage, and how she alters direction like three or four times (and Tomase goes right along with her), without any coherency of message or theme, and all based on how Brady responded to one fuckup:KUSNIEREK: “I did find it interesting, too, that… and I couldn’t, I still can’t decide whether or not I think it’s a good thing, or uh oh, what’s going on with Tom Brady and what’s going on in his mind, but when he had that illegal forward pass, and he was was so far past the line of scrimmage, and when they took the shot of him and he laughed about it! He laughed it off and part of me was like, “Oh good, he can laugh at himself!” Yay,Tom Brady! I feel like usually you’re so angry at yourself for making any kind of mistake, but at the same time – after I heard what everyone was saying after the game – like “we didn’t have that attitude we normally should have” and the energy wasn’t there, the focus wasn’t there, I suddenly looked at that differently all of a sudden and said, ‘Why were you laughing?’ That’s not the Tom Brady I know. The Tom Brady I know, if you’re down in a game and you do something so… you know! You’ve been playing this game for 18 years, you know when you’re way… I mean, he was WAY past the line of scrimmage. You don’t laugh at yourself; you get PISSED at yourself! Or, why not hold that ball, run and slide? He had some open field in front of him. You may not have been able to get to the end zone, but you might have at least been able to pick up a first down…”TOMASE: “Yeah, I don’t remember if that’s…”KUSNIEREK: “I don’t remember if that was a thing. I don’t remember if it was goal to go.”TOMASE: “I think it was goal to go, but even still. When I saw it live, I didn’t mind. It was like ehh. There was a smile like, ‘You got me, I can’t even argue that one, you got me’. But you’re right. After the game, when you hear everything he said, and you hear the stuff the rest of the team said, and the constant theme of ‘we weren’t ready, we weren’t prepared, we weren’t energized’…”KUSNIEREK: “Yeah…”TOMASE: “That whole idea, you do kind of look at it slightly diff… I mean, listen, are we gonna go after Tom Brady for that? No. But it does highlight how things were a little bit off, things were off.”I mean, who cares if Brady laughed or got angry at himself after crossing the line of scrimmage? It was certainly a fuckup, and there’s no doubt he was aware of it, so what possible special meaning can be derived by his emotional reaction to it? She keeps talking a mile a minute, certain to change position three times if she doesn’t have somebody else on to interrupt her free association broadcasting.Later, they took some calls. One dumbass suggested playing Hollister more because he reminded him of Hernandez. Tomase and Trenni couldn’t remember what round Hernandez was drafted:TOMASE: “I have a hard time putting Jacob Hollister, just in a football context…”KUSNIEREK: “On the level with Aaron Hernandez?”TOMASE: “Yeah! Undrafted guy comparing him to Aaron Hernandez, first round pick, or you know, not first round pick…”KUSNIEREK: “Second, I think.”TOMASE: “Second round pick, whatever.”September 11, 2017 at 2:28 pm #108919

Totally agree with Blinded about Trenni. She horrible…and that’s an understatement. At least Tanguay sucks, knows he sucks, and is playing a role as the village idiot. Trenni pretends to be so politcally and socially aware about EVERYTHING that she thinks she’s beyond reproach. She is an absolute recycler of everything, be it her mindless “takes” on the radio, or activity on Twitter.
Listen to this pinhead for 5 minutes and she’ll say something ignorant, factually wrong, or both. I’ve heard her several times say the Patriots “wasted” a 2nd round pick for Kony Ealy. They swapped their 2nd for Ealy and the Panthers 3rd. It amounted to moving down 8 positions. I’ve even heard somebody correct her on it, but she’s got her version locked in her peabrain so she continues to tell it her way. I would stay away from her looks if she wasn’t such a vile person. I find her visually nauseating from her crappy hair, to her mole infested face, to her beer keg shaped physique.September 11, 2017 at 2:56 pm #108923

I ventured over to the 9/11 Memorial last week in preparation for the anniversary. Despite it being exactly 817 steps from my apartment in Manhattan, I had never been. I was not impressed. I frankly thought that the displays did not do enough to convey the horror of that day. Perhaps allow visitors to toss dummies off of a replica of the towers so they can experience the terror firsthand? Maybe pipe in some screams? Something. I was also a bit annoyed when the security guard advised me I could not toss my lucky penny into the fountains inside of the tower footprints. It was minted in 2001 and I have carried it with me since finding it (heads up) on September 12, 2001. I won’t be back.September 11, 2017 at 4:00 pm #108928

Due to it being draft day, I flipped around sports radio a bit and caught Gresh calling Mayock an “azzhat” (modified for filter) who doesn’t know jack.
Lets see. Mayock played at a Division I school. He played in the NFL, including for Bill Belichick. He works for a network dedicated to football and attends the Combine every year. He talks about essentially nothing but football for his job and seems to be well-respected by NFL front office types, some of whom have reportedly offered him jobs.
Gresh played for URI.

Mayock also travels around to all the major pro days and individual workouts. Gresh goes to the break room and empties the Pop Tarts rack in the vending machine.

Gresh eats Oreo Cakesters, not Pop Tarts. It’s called a fact. You might want to try those once in a while.

If that just said “poke himself and make people laugh” I could maybe believe it. Maybe.

If he choked himself I would laugh. And I don’t mean any of that Hutchence crap either, I mean choking himself by stuffing too many dinner rolls in his mouth at once.

Reading the transcript of Trenni’s comments, I was surprised she didn’t go in the direction of “Oh, Brady can laugh about it when he screws up, but run the wrong route and Tom won’t be laughing about it when you get to the bench. What kind of message is a team leader sending when he laughs off his mistakes, but gets in your face and yells at you if line up 6 inches away from where he expects you to.”
Brady’s reaction is part of the “can’t win” element of the media. If Brady had acted pissed off about incurring that penalty, someone would say that his downer attitude rubbed off on the rest of the team and he should have done something different to try and keep it light and pick the team up. They would have been saying the same thing, that the team wasn’t prepared or energized, and Brady getting upset with his gaffe didn’t help things.
With the comments about where Hernandez was drafted and what the Ealy trade involved, I’m baffled why Trenni or Tomase can’t just type in “aaron hernandez draft” on the phone or PC and get the answer. It takes seconds, give you the added benefit of the right answer and keeps you from saying things like “Second round pick, whatever.”September 11, 2017 at 5:37 pm #108933September 11, 2017 at 5:49 pm #108934September 11, 2017 at 6:12 pm #108935

Saw an espn piece on Matt Ryan yesterday, didn’t know Matt Ryan was in some car accident in high school with his brother. They were rear ended then got knocked into a military fuel truck, thankfully empty. Needed the jaws of life to get the brother out. Clearly did nothing wrong, but espn ends it with ‘to this day Matt doesn’t like to talk about the accident.’ Sounds like an e:60 with Bob Ley waiting to happen:
Ley: Matt, tell us about the accident.
Ryan: It’s not something I’d like to talk about, people don’t really need to know about…
Ley: The hell it isn’t Matt! The world deserves to know!!!!!September 11, 2017 at 6:17 pm #108937

Second the hate on the Trenni- I listened for 5 minutes- a la Pete King, she said she did a 12 mile run before she went on air. There’s no way that carny conceived piece of midwestern shit ran 12 miles.
I did a search for Trenni today (shudder) and came across this article (link), which says she ran the Boston Marathon twice. It’s from 5 years ago, so maybe she’s still capable of running long distances.
The article details her struggle with depression, how she had to step away from her career, and her path back. The real negative to me was that her condition led to her leaving her job at MLB and returning home to Milwaukee to deal with it. After a year or two, she felt she had things under control enough to take a job in Boston. If only someone encouraged her to stay in WI, we’d have never heard of her.
