He’s a generational talent who carried the Colts—with a roster gutted to start the post-Peyton Manning era—to the playoffs in 2012, a playoff win in ’13 and a trip to the AFC championship game in ’14. He’s the NFL’s closest player to a LeBron James-level prospect this decade. And he was well on his way to…
I believe ribbon candy cost a nickel as well…..
I would say TV was a big deal in 1968. Had Ryan been writing about the Boston Globe in 1962 (before JFK got assassinated) he’d have been a bit more acc…
MEMO to ESPN:
I hope your NY Yankees vs. NY Mets Superwanker broadcast tonight is PUMMELLED by Westworld, the Tony Awards, and/or Celebrity Family Feud.
I hope the ratings are a slap in the face and a gigantic wake-up call.
The Yankees are not America’s Team. The Mets are not a fan-favorite collection of loveable strivers.

Okay, I now assume I must read Ask Nick Sunday GM more closely than anyone at the Globe.
Why? Because why would you not send his lazy information-free “needs analysis” back for re-write if not re-report? Consider:
The “One the One Hand” if I say ‘both’ I’m always right move –

Maybe during the summer we should have weekly threads or monthly threads until the Patriots season approaches.
This reminds me of something that a.paul posted last weekend or the weekend before. It was something to the effect of that he was looking forward to the upcoming Bruins and Celtics seasons because of…
Dr Charles must watch those Vegas pregame thingy’s and think “That could have been me.”
Dramatic readings from the Wahlbergs, Mindy Kaling reading “Casey at the Bat,” Dana White introducing the teams, Jimmy Taylor singing the Anthem and an animatronic Neil Diamond for “Sweet Caroline.” It’s all in a box under the cente…
Any possible interest I had in listening to Clemens do a Sox game is completely negated by pairing him with Dale.
Strike three swinging, gets him with the high heat…something you might know a little about Roger, ho ho!

😆 I was scheduled for a colonoscopy on Thursday at 1 p.m. in West Paterson, N.J. If you’ve had one, or if you’ve had any intestinal procedure, you know that the day before such an internal snaking you’ve got to be, well, cleaned out. One problem for me: On Wednesday, I was covering the Vince Young pro d…
John and Linda have an article up about the art installation on the greenway using the “flapping chicken” from Fontaines. Literally nobody ever called it the flapping chicken.
Say, whaddya mean, all of us here in Beantown love the ol’ flapping chicken, it harkens back to a quieter, better time when the Red Sox stole…
So which is the dominant theme today? 1. The Bruins sucked and trade everyone 2. The Sixers sucked and the Celtics are lucky…or you are a Green Teamer. 3. Watch out for the Yankees who will never lose again.
The Kontrarianz will be torn today. Mazz was on TV last night (real TV, not former Comcast Sports’ “Nyet Network” fa…[Read more]
There’s a ton of reasons why the Patriots could have wanted to talk to Mayfield isn’t there? He slides, he goes in the division and they have to play him twice a year, or they really would have moved up to take him. There’s also the possibility that this could be a Sackless Ghol situation. All I know is they weren’t giving…

I thought I heard some sort of “breaking scoop” during the local news unveiling what we’ve all been holding our breaths over: who would be The Boston Globe’s “special guest” at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner?
As a longtime Globe reader, I would think (if current Globe employees…[Read more]
I’m with Lefty. 11 minutes earlier and no double post.
In my defense, Lefty’s thread not visible when I started mine.
The double post thing is a matter of taste IMO. 😆
Oh, and one leftover observation/gripe. Since when is “agent praises own client” news?
Water-carrier Nick devoted about a third of his “Baseball Buffet” column yesterday to breathless “reporting” of how impressed Scott Boras is by J.D. Martinez. Lengthy quotes. Bottom Line: Boras is impressed. Nick was right. Fire burns. Water is wet. And just in…[Read more]
Forget Truck Day. This Chicken Little Day.
How can the Red Sox halt their out-of-control skid and the implosions surrounding this bunch of ineffective losers? Ask Nick looks heavenward for some solace.

K&C accusing Kevin Cullen of some Barnicle shit about the marathon bombing. Cullen went on BBC Radio the day after and described how a Boston firefighter friend helped the Richard family immediately after the blast when it was somebody else. Also wrote a misleading article for the Irish Times. Why this is…
Do you think Fatty knows how to make coffee, or more accurately, ever has? Meaning, bag of beans, grinder, pot. Not a keurig.
I’m certain he doesn’t know the “grinder, pot” part.
