06/15/22 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

Pour some out for Store # 17. Then clean it up with some sawdust.

Maybe wait until the Celtics stop moving to strap them to the table and start doing an autopsy of their season?

Happy for Bruce Cassidy landing on his feet.

The U.S. Open being played at The Country Club is a nascent Abbott and Costello skit.

If the NBA is gonna take its officiating cues from pro wrestling, then I say the C’s hit the Warriors with an International Object when the officials aren’t looking.

Cakes are cooking for Dusty Baker, Jim Belushi, Wade Boggs, Helen Hunt, Cedric Pioline, Abdur Razzak, and Cooper Kupp.

Billerica now clearly needs to annex the Market Basket on the Middlesex Turnpike in Burlington to restore the number in town to three.

Hey gang of one that sees burner accounts every which where, this week’s Phrase that Pays is ‘I don’t have a fat nose and it’s not what would be considered big by nose’s standards.’

A hard-earned draw versus Costa Rica playing in the agua for the USMNT in CONCACAF or ECOMCON or whatever.

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
