12/22/2021 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

No one on the ice. At all.

Red Sox Winter Weekend cancelled by the MLB lockout before it could be cancelled by the COVID like last year.

Michael Gee; vindicated? Time will tell.

You’re right. What do I know about sports fandom? It’s not like I literally just wrote a book about it or anything. Oh, wait, I did.

I’m not sure the NHL players are Olympics-bound.

Hunter Henry and his wife Parker had their first child last week on the Patriots’ bye week. This week he catches a touchdown pass. Sports.

I don’t know who needs to hear this but eggnog is delicious.

Embiid was obviously incensed by Jackie Mac’s impression of him on California Bill Simmons’ podcast.

That college football Bowl Game has a funny name!

Cakes are cooking for Dick Barry. Steve Carlton, Steve Garvey, Jan Stephenson, Susan Powter, Luther Campbell, and Mike Sullivan.

Tiger golfing again is great to see.

Working in sports is always hectic but a day like today where news is cycling through every five minutes is especially tough on social teams and content creators. But 99% of those who work in sports for a living wouldn’t change that for the world. Proud to be apart of that 99%.

Get well soon Paige Bueckerers, or whoever.

This Omicron variant best not derail the AHL into January!

I don’t know if it’s been said, but that Mac Jones; it’s like he was made in a lab!

The Celtics traded Joe Johnson on February 20th, 2002. They are bringing him back 7,245 days later. That HAS to be an all-time sports record.

Since Bill is now apologizing for stuff, how about that Trump letter and Bon Jovi, and Mike Lombardi?

Worcester Line Train 514 (11:00 am from Worcester) is operating 10-20 minutes behind schedule between Framingham and South Station due to train traffic.

Hot tip: Route 1 has plenty of stores to help you finish Christmas shopping.

I just want to debate yards allowed versus points scored, not cases versus hospitalizations. Is that so wrong?

The Regular Chick craze out of Hollywood needs to pass.

Honk if you remember Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it: and Scrooge’s name was good upon ’Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

Mind! I don’t mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country’s done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

Not Drakeo too??

We need Bruins hockey back. People are screaming at me over a superhero movie. Oh man.

Any time I need to know what Shaq Mason’s prorated training camp bonus is, @patscap is my guy.

The car selling company “Carvana” is ripping off “Nirvana” with their name. No one will convince me otherwise.

Hey stupid, it’s the ‘Carson Palmer’ Rule.

Is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation better than the original?

Always impressed Derek Carr’s mascara never runs.

So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

Most painful thing in the world is the post office #sportscards

UMass needed OT to get past Fairfield U?

Cam’s fleeting success with his return to Carolina was a dead Panther bounce, apparently.

Vincent D’Onofrio just doesn’t miss, no matter what role he’s playing.

Barstool Sports basically killed the Herald’s Inside Track, so it’s only like 99% awful.

Look for our review of Spriderman: No Way Home early next year. Free preview – Loved It!

Best bet for the Weekend: Hats and T-shirts.
