08/03/22 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

Eric and Kacie, in KC.

Red Sox were both buyers AND sellers at the trade deadline. Like being an importer/exporter.

I wish I was smart enough to discern the commonality between Mopey Tom Brady illicitly negotiating to leave New England and Mopey Tom Brady illicitly negotiating to leave Tampa Bay. 

Vin Scully. I feel like a part of my grandparents childhood died along with him. RIP.

Welcome to Boston Eric Hosmer, and welcome back Kacie. They’re probably not going to celebrate at Table.

Pray to Creator/God
Smudge/Light Incense and Candles
Feed the Sacred Alter dedicated to the Ancestors and Loved ones
Set intentions
Sit still
Meditate and Free your Mind
Invite other aligned Souls
Live out life beautifully and Manifest 
Help as many families as you can

I bet Tuukka is excited to finally do the sex now that he’s married.

Tell the wife to keep her head on a swivel and your kid to have faster reflexes, Seth.

Hashtag more names.

How are we as a society not making Aaron Judge pee into a cup every game?

Cakes are cooking for Martha Stewart, John Landis, Tim Mayotte, James Hetfield, Óscar Pereiro, Tom Brady, and Ryan Lochte.

So long Vazqy. We’ll see you later, when the Sox re-acquire you next season.

If you aren’t making Vin Scully’s death about yourself are you even nominally “in sports”?

Orange Line Update: To accelerate #BuildingABetterT efforts & address critical @FTA_DOT directives, the Orange Line will be fully diverted from 9pm on August 19 – September 18. Shuttle buses & the @MBTA_CR will be available for alternate service downtown & across the line.

Hey gang. This week’s Phrase that Pays is “a fundamental lack of understanding”


I’ll say it. I miss having Marv’s warm body to kick around.

There will be verification of said names.

My father, Bert Bell, invented the meaningless death.

Reply more to the same tweet. You can’t.

The first rule of being a ‘media personality’ should be that you have one. That Shukes guy has nothing to offer. Blank as a fart.

Mother in law owes you 80 bucks you never hear from her. You borrow her crock pot for 2 days? Hoo child.

It’s Red….. Auerbach. HOUR-BACK.

Don’t Google ‘docking’.

My content will be different moving forward.

Is Joe Biden addicted to COVID-19?

I think your baseball-reference is different than mine.

Low rider don’t use no gas now
Low rider don’t drive too fast

Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip and see
Take a little trip, take a little trip
Take a little trip with me.

I wonder if the cricket hiding and chirping behind the break room refrigerator knows the cricket hiding and chirping behind the water heater in my basement.

The Yankees this year are so good, a few people are even starting to compare them to the 2018 Red Sox.

ALERT: The City of Boston has declared a heat emergency beginning beginning tomorrow, August 4 through Sunday, August 7. Cooling centers will be open at 16 Boston Centers for Youth & Families community centers through Sunday from 9AM to 5PM

Hold on, ‘spaz’, is considered an ‘ableist slur’ in England? That’s just retarded.

Brady asked to be released in the summer of 2018, then actively colluded with a division opponent the following year. Bill managing that loon for 20 years is the greatest accomplishment in sports history.

Vin Scully called 21 no-hitters. The NBA equivalent would be calling 5 60-point games.

Honk if you remember Sihugo Green.

Tiger Woods reportedly turned down a 700-800 million dollar offer to join the new controversial LIV Golf tour. I say good for him. He can still make that and more in the United States.

Wait, Shula died?!!!

If you think about it, what Deshaun Watson did was also kind of an ‘equipment violation’. What?

Twitter must employ a disproportionate number of only children. Someone with older siblings would know the obvious difference between brotherly tough love and ‘targeted abuse.’

Quote tweet the same tweet more. You can’t.

Between Breer’s idiotic ‘the Patriots used Tom Brady’s draft position as leverage’ take, and Zawahiri getting killed in his Kabul Airbnb by a Hellfire missile with the Ginsu attachments, it’s been a bad week for Al’s.

I also wake up before 6 am to read stories about 94 year-olds.

I would have lost money had the Commonweath of Massachusetts allowed me to bet on whether the state legislature would allow legalized sports betting this session.

Best bet for the weekend: Birthday boy Tom loses another lineman to injury. Oh no!

Vin Scully. At Fenway Park. Both one-of-a-kind.

Material from interviews, wire services, Twitter, Meta, other writers, league and team sourcesBill James, and the members of #the15 were used in this column. Love is in the water. Love is in the air. Show me where to look. Tell me, will love be there? Will love be there?

And a happy birthday to well-known Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly.
