10/13/22 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

Czech Mates Pasta and Krejci. Reunited, and it feels so good.

The October Hunter’s moon has been so bright you could read a newspaper by it. If people still read newspapers.

Alphas don’t lock their twitter accounts.

Mookie Betts has one more post season RBI in a Red Sox uniform than Ian Kinsler, caller.

Deucedly polite of the Red Sox to not extend their season further into October so as to give the Bruins and Celtics the local spotlight.

A GOOSE! On the FIELD! During a Playoff Game! Can you BELIEVE it!?

Krejci had 4 points in his return to the US while Bitsy Griener rots in a Russian jail over a CBD vape pen.

Cakes are cooking for Mike Barnicle, Jerry Trupiano, John Ford Coley, Pat Day, Doc Rivers, Jerry Rice, Kate Walsh, Nancy Kerrigan, Summer Sanders, Roger Lima, Paul Pierce, and Park Ji-min.

Baseball injuries are so absurd… And this isn’t me saying “baseball players are pussies.” But in no other sport do dudes get hurt carrying deer meat up a flight of stairs, or burning themselves by ironing a shirt…while wearing the shirt.

When do we expect/estimate this year’s World Series to end, does anybody know?

MBTA Update: If you worked here, you’d be on your train right now.

It’s a fucking Drake lyric!

The Sullivan Tire commercials make me miss home.

Former Panthers coach Matt Rhule had several opportunities last offseason for big-time college jobs, but he turned them down to stay in Carolina. Now, he’ll have his choice of coveted college jobs.

Garapollo saving everyone’s ass out west. Good for you kid

Extra Toasty Cheez-It’s are a top tier snack.

Why do you hate sporting teams honoring indigenous peoples as worthy warriors?

Before the term “bullshit” moved into mass circulation, the term most often used for that was “bunk”. I think “bunk” was derived from an earlier term, “bunkum”. I think that usage of the word “bunk” is rapidly becoming archaic. I don’t think you hear or read it much anymore.

I want heart rate on players so bad. Test it like they do with mic-ing players up.

Hey gang, the sense I get from inside the building is that this week’s Phrase that Pays is, “This, presumably, is to set up a lawsuit.”

There’s two fake Justin Ramos’s. The real one and the other one.

Knock-Knock. Who’s there? Christian Arcand. Not anymore you’re not! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Yesterday was David. Lee. Henderson Day. The David before the David.

South Shore is the king of pizza while North Shore is the king of roast beef in this state.

Have 30 Seconds To Mars and 5 Seconds of Summer ever appeared at the same music festival before?

I’ll never understand the incessant noise they play at Dodger Stadium. It’s just plain obnoxious.

These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all

The way we look to a distant constellation
That’s dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don’t cry baby, don’t cry
Don’t cry.

Wait until Kirk investigates the Iroquois death on Season Three of ‘The Case’!

Honk if you remember the Cambridge Aku-Aku.

The Padres uniforms look like what I imagine Guatemalan UPS drivers wear.

Krejci, what is that, Italian?

Have fun making pizzas again Patriots practice squad feel-good story guy.

So the Tampa Bay Lightning abuse LTIR and underage high school girls, allegedly?

We need more political ads where the candidate’s family definitely loves them.

I feel bad for Tommy Trombone, or whoever they guy was the Mets closer entrance song was done by.

Best bet for the weekend: Coach Bill not being up front about injuries, not like cool Coach Shanny.

The majestic greater white-fronted goose.

Material from interviews, wire services, Twitter, Meta, other writers, league and team sourcesBill James, and the members of #the15 were used in this column. Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away.

The late Angela Lansbury (circa mid 1940s). She didn’t always look old.
