    For two December games, Collinsworth away, Warner subs.

    Mute still on.

    New Globe columnist Tara Sullivan sure can dig hard to uncover the stories. “Tomato Can” homage as a debut.  “Brady yelled at McDaniels” molehill-to-Mt. Washinton move today. True to form, the latter was thoroughly debunked as meaningful by Sunday night.

    That’s Joe Sullivan’s Sports Section: several days late on story and non-story alike, fierce finger-wagging all around.

    ‘Scuse me. I must hurry to catch Joltin’ Joe and HighPants Bob (can he retire for real, already!) moan about Rob Gronkowski’s bad behavior.

    A slight twinge of regret maybe that my tweet pic of Diabeetle’s neck fat got shared a little more than I thought it would. :lol:

    Early returns on Tara’s work suggest she holds a degree from the Shank school of shit-rag ‘journalism’ . How long before they let her write a column about ‘cleaning out the desk drawer of he mind”?

    Ordway and Dummy Smerlas can take 30 years of fat jokes, but this guy turtles if somebody whispers about it?

    Screw it.

    Fuck him, he should be shamed into losing weight. He has three young kids and works four hours a day.  He’s high profile enough that if he sincerely tweeted out that he was looking for a personal trainer/nutritionist he’d get plenty of legitimate responses. He’d also, however, get a bunch of people breaking his balls, and he’s too thin skinned for that.

    I know it’s a common name but has it been determined whether or not she’s related to Joe Sullivan?

    Okay, I’m cheered up. :lol:

    He really could be in the gym for hours. Probably for free, if he works the Dale Arnold scam.

    Him saying KG showed up one year out of shape is irrevocable consecration that he can eat shit until he explodes (figuratively).  With apologies to Ty Webb, Bertrand is very…fat…for a..corpulent gentleman…carrying an insane amount of weight.  He’s not DeOssie “ha ha, try a salad!” fat.  He’s fat. A fat fuck. He is, and should be, a cautionary tale.  As it currently stands, try and get in some semblance of shape if you are going to be on TV consistently.  As it soon will be, take care of yourself so your kids don’t wonder why their dead father couldn’t put down the Ring Dings long enough to see us graduate from kindergarten.

    Would you say he’s knocking on the door of 4 bills? When I was at my fattest I was about 275, and I was fat as hell but not in his neighborhood

    “Problems I have with the Patriots late season conditioning, the Bruins don’t work hard enough, New Sox Manager Cora needs to drink less and treat his body better and Al Horford seems out of shape, all coming up on the Sports Hub after this ad for (new name every three weeks) Weight Loss”

    It’s nice to see ESPN employees calling for Gronk to be jumped…..

    Clark then expressed his own disappointment that the Bills didn’t respond by physically hitting Gronkowski in some way after the hit was delivered.

    “This is the thing: I texted him, I thought they should have jumped [Gronkowski]. That was my initial thought, that [White’s] teammates should have came to his defense,” Clark said.

    How many Gronks/Gronk friends were in the stands?  could have been a reverse of the Bruins thing from the 70’s.  Papa gronk like the dad during the fight scene from The Wanderers

    Goddam Zach Lowe stealing from the board today:

    In the most literal sense, the Warriors look the way they do because of Curry. Teams trap Golden State’s pick-and-rolls 30 feet from the rim, unlocking shots for everyone else, because those pick-and-rolls involve the only human in history capable of hitting 40 percent of his off-the-dribble 3s from that distance. Draymond Green emerged as the team’s assist leader in part because he was Curry’s go-to pick-and-roll partner — and those traps sprang him for 4-on-3s that flummoxed the league for a full season.

     

    I mean, you can’t get basketball analysis like your boy Callahardfoul’s work just anywhere. My next post, titled “Tatum is good at threes” will be dropping shortly. Stay tuned.

    I saw ITT’s point the other day about announcers. I agree they were much better in the old days.

    Some various reasons off the top of my head:

    – better voices (from smoking?)

    – they didn’t call players by first names

    – they didn’t talk non-stop

    I heard a random call from Keith Jackson and it was so much better than a Chris Fowler one.

    Keith Jackson embarrassingly promo’ing upcoming ABC programming was better than any actual game calls today.

    Fowler tries too hard to bring excitement to calls.  He’s better at tennis.

    We gotta trim some of the fat around here.  I want you to fire Bertrand.

    I’ll be breaking down how the “Little Red House” stack play (and all variations) we ran in CYO in the early 80s was the precursor to the Golden State offense.

    Well said, Chico! Every word of it.

    “Looks like he is wearing Grogan’s neck roll.”

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    Nah, you’re doing God’s work.

    Somehow I missed it & just took a look. Holy crap.  :ohmy:

    Clark spent the majority of his time with the Steelers and was once fined for a late, helmet-to-helmet hit against Gronkowski, part of the $85k he was fined for late hits during his career. I’m sure there’s no bias in his view. At all.

    If you think about it, he’s tacitly approving what Gronk did. Gronkowski hit a guy late, after the play was over. Clark’s solution is to hit Gronkowski late, after the play has ended. I hope the CTE finds him soon.
