09/21/22 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer
Thanks for the memories and for retiring as a Bruin, Big Z.
Plawecki DFA’d? The Sox season really ended that day. Although technically it did so several weeks back.
Local Media: “Steelers week two sure looks like a must-win game…” (Patriots win) “…well, that doesn’t count.”
The Celtics will be fine as long as no one else gets injured or needs surgery that will sideline them for 4-6 weeks.
Getting Aaron Judge out of his current pinstriped uniform might make him look less like a giant circus freak.
Nice dub, UMass Football. You too, Boston College.
To be fair, the Connecticut Sun really didn’t stand a chance against Becky Hammon’s giant basketball brain.
Ben Volin understands irony like Alanis Morissette did. Don’t you think?
Cakes are cooking for Stephen King, Artis Gilmore, Cecil Fielder, Maggie Grace, and John Kitna.
That Bucs-Saints game (had) me looking like woah woah what do we have here
Orange Line Update: All fix!
My robot vacuum disappeared under some piece of furniture a couple of weeks ago. I know it is out there somewhere, but I just don’t have the energy to organize a search for it.
You gotta love Portnoy calling Minihane a local show. Kirk took it in stride, like he does with all things.
Character Power Rankings after Episode One:
1. Warlaird Cor Trullblitz the Moosehearted – Where do his true loyalties lie?
2. Anona, Electress of Baverphlact – You go, girl!

The Appalachian State radio guys apparently broke into some obscure holler dialect or started speaking in tongues.
To me network shows are the channels you can get with an antenna.
Never want to see the ambulance.
I’m kind of waiting to see something that tells me that Triston Casas is better than Bobby Dalbec. So far I haven’t really seen it. Anybody?
News Item: “The Phantom of the Opera” will close on Broadway after 35 years in February 2023.
I search the composting hashtag frequently.
Need a little time to wake up
Need a little time to wake up, wake up
Need a little time to wake up
Need a little time to rest your mind
You know you should so I guess you might as well….
What’s the story morning glory?
I’m not one to brag, but all three of my fantasy football teams won the past weekend. Huh? What? Yes; that is so brag-worthy!
you can critique Mac Jones all you want but you better do the same for your boy Justin fields cause if you don’t. We all know why
Is George Wendt in the new Fletch movie?
Here’s the thing; with apple picking: It’s about pie building, not about accumulating Granny Smiths.
You can’t re-ignite the donnybrook, former Coach Kangol.
RIP, Shelby Jordan. His death means that John Hannah is the last survivor of the Pats’ great o-line of the Fairbanks Era: Gray, Lenkaitis, and Sam Adams Sr. all have died.
Aaron Judge is like having two 30-HR guys on the team, but only using one roster spot.
Honk if you remember LoJack.
My lawn? rebounding nicely, thank you.
Gunner Olszewski did a lot of muffing in New England too.
Notice the new Lucky logo at midcourt?
The Patriots are trading OT Justin Herron to the Raiders, per source.
Did Kayce Smith take anything to the face this weekend?
Calling Babe Ruth “a lazy fats tits” because he was overweight the second half of his career is also odd. Alejandro Kirk was was a MLB All Star (deservedly so) in 2022. Baseball players have always come in all shapes and sizes.
When do I get my The FBI’s/NCIS’s Incredible Crossover Event, CBS?
From the Azores to the Ashkenazi, it’s about the beautiful game, Danny.
Best bet for the weekend: Patriots holding Lamar. Demeatrice. Jackson. Jr. under 101 yards rushing.
Material from interviews, wire services, Twitter, Meta, other writers, league and team sources, Bill James, BSMW poster Canadian Soldier, plus the members of #the15 were used in this column. Don’t leave me high. Don’t leave me dry.
