01/26/22 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

Congratulations Big Poppi! Huge fans here.

Having just gotten my COVID booster shot, I was pleasantly surprised to find it also provides immunity from Olympic Fever.

Congrats Big “David” Papi Ortiz. Did the Hall of Fame call Identical Best Friend Sixto first by accident?

Celtics win in a squeaker! Heh heh heh.

Why are people acting surprised a dude is good at trivia?

NFL loves six-hour pre games and 90 second post games.

If I hear one more national pundit tell me they would take Aaron Rodgers over Tom Brady in a big game clutch situation I will gladly show that pundit a video of the Packers losing to the 49er’s and tell them..I rest my case.

Cakes are cooking for Anita Baker, Wayne Gretzky, Andrew Ridgley, Lou Frazier, Vince Carter, and Sarah Rue


I bet that Erika Nardini can correctly load a dishwasher.

In his intro press conference, new #Giants GM Joe Schoen says of QB Daniel Jones: “We’ll build an offense to accentuate what Daniel does best.” A strong show of support for the starting QB.

Orange Line Update: Regularly scheduled service has resumed.

All the journos love a good nickname as it sounds like they know the person.  Peter King loves a good Wink or Booger or Peanut. 

Cooper Kupp? Sneaky fast. Perhaps even gritty.

Tom Rinaldi is first and foremost a company man – he thinks white bread is risqué.

Yes, yes, we know; ‘his name is Robert Paulson.’ Be more tedious.

Tom Brady definitely has to play another season to try and keep his stats out of the reach of Josh ‘Ceiling Unlimited’ Allen.

Did Jeff Kent get in?

Of late, Aaron Rodgers has been telling his friends that he’s considering boycotting the NFC Championship.

Hey gang, this week’s Phrase that Pays is “I just wish I could do what I want without getting attacked every week.”

If asked to do so by their managers, could the better MLB starting pitchers go nine innings 10-15 times a year?

Imagine driving in your car and listening to Adam Jones?

Maybe Curt Schilling would benefit from trading a few items of memorabilia with Darren Rovell. Always good to diversify your portfolio.

Sweet flophouse, Jules.

Has something changed? Are kids no longer so ill that hospitalization is no longer needed? – Anthony Fauci, MD

Pro tip: have Greg Dickerson check to see if the ice is safe!

Told you, baby, one more time
Don’t make me sit all alone and cry
Well, it’s over I, know it but I can’t let go

I’m like a fish out of water, a cat in a tree
You don’t even want to talk to me
Well, it’s over, I know it but I can’t let go.

Is ‘Acho’ the Igbo word for ‘JAG?’

You let Rosie Langello leave for Alabama! You did! You did!

Honk if you remember the Yao Ming Wing and Sing.

Nothing like reaching into the just-stopped clothes dryer and finding that 140-degree metal zipper with your hand.

Is Big Papi’s HOF acceptance speech going to have subtitles?

He’s well actually-ing about maize, which your people call corn.

Brady better drop another retirement hint, the attention has been off of him for the last 45 minutes.

Best bet for the weekend: Wovel weather.
