10/27/2021 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

Less than ideal.

Has the national mourning period over Joe Buck’s busy season started before this week or is it just during the World Series?

Thanks for having the troll on your podcast, Mister Wall Defender. For the watch…

Bob Neumeier is gone. And there’s a lot wrong with that.

Is it possible this Celtics roster is better built to play under Brad, and Brad’s roster last year was better built to play under Ime?

The Supporters Shield sounds like something you wear while recovering from a hernia operation. Congrats, Revs. I guess.

Sox ousted from the ALCS, and then comes a frost warning followed a bomb cyclone nor’easter. Nature knows that the summer game is done in New England.

Best player in the Ocean State. Benny Hurd. Remember the name.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin swiftly rejects any speculation he’d be a candidate for the USC job. “Never say next, but never.”

News Item: Eversource is prepared for the storm.

The Tom Brady 600th touchdown football guy should have held out for all the other stuff plus a white pool cover.

Cuck Modi. That’s it; that’s the post.

Betting on sports and refrigerator runs can be risky!

MBTA Commuter Rail Update: While conditions are easing across the system, significant impacts continue as a result of damaging winds, rain, & flooding. Our crews are working to resolve issues across the network but ongoing delays are occurring due to severe equipment damage, signal issues, & down trees.

Black Twitter has a problem with John Stockton? Weird!

Timothée Chalamet needs a sandwich. A panini. Or a paninée, maybe.

Big bang baby, it’s a crash, crash, crash
I wanna cry, but I gotta laugh
Orange crush mama is a laugh, laugh, laugh

Not big on continental breakfast items in general but a properly done salt bagel with the accoutrements and a flat white is a good change of pace.

Honk if you remember Rusty Jones.

No, Neumie didn’t die from complications from laminitis, why would you even think that?

I thought ‘Flat’ White was a dead ball era hurler.

Word on the street is money can be exchanged for goods or services.

The man you came to see.

Commissioner Goodell isn’t as unaccountable as an ordinary MLB umpire is.

A tie is as good as a draw, Revs.

Did the NHL schedule makers think the Ringling Brothers Circus was in town?

Thankfully it’s still baseball season, so these football losses doesn’t count yet. Whew!

For all you fans of the orange leather, as we embark on another NBA season, be sure to throw “Cattles On Causeway” a twitter follow. @CausewayPodcast

You can’t complain about about the refs when Mac Jones only goes two-point-two innings!

The on the PUP thus ineliglble to play malingering malcontent cornerback would have saved the game, caller.

Can they finally arrest Pete Rose now for killing Ray Fosse?

We’re hearing a certain pizza heir is single!

Cakes are cooking for Dave Krieg, Razor Ramon, Billy Zabka, Chantel Tremitiere, John Krasinski, and Candice Swanepoel.

A Touch & Rich syndication deal? Zoinks!

I for one can’t believe Hank Steinbrenner is just sitting there and letting this happen to his team!

Here for the trade convention?

Essentially: Baker Mayfield still has a chance to play the following week. But Sunday to Thursday was just too fast. Now he’ll focus on rehab and tightening up the shoulder.

Jerry Thornton still cares more than YOU.

Hey NBC Sports Boston, as the great Bob Ryan once said, what’s the fascination with Chris Forsberg?

No. Just no.

Hey gang, this week’s Phrase that Pays is, “Sure it was a bad call BUT…”

UConn football with the dub!

Well, you can make a big impression or go through life unseen
You might wind up restricted and over seventeen
It’s so hard to be careful, so easy to be led
Somewhere beyond the pavement, you’ll find the living dead

We’re all behind you, Anita. So to speak.

What are the Boston Mayoral candidates stances on dog racing?

Do you think imposter syndrome (fake dynasty variant) contributed to Lane Johnson’s depression?

No one chuckles like Gene Hackman.

Please do not explain a baseball game to me that I literally just watched live at Fenway!

Ben Volin’s ‘Lets go Barves’ has the cadence of an inside joke. Sorrey!

Honk if you remember when Dan Shaughnessy was still selling ‘The Curse of Babe Ruth’ books.

This upcoming week, I’ll be investing in @iluvtacos0822‘s OnlyFans.

I may have my facts wrong, but I don’t think the Red Sox have lost an ALCS since the time the ‘chicken & waffles’ scandal led to John Farrell resigning back in 2015.

Frank Caliendo? He’s no Rich Little.

All pretend business owners should rent office space for a month. Think of the selfie opportunities!

Nothing says “sports gambling” like Patton Oswalt.

Maybe don’t be a junkie?

See, it’s funny because he’s not from Waltham but Carrabis is pretending he is. Buy a $35 T-shirt.

Cam is now vaccinated. Good job. Good effort.

Can you believe how out of touch college football twitter is? Going crazy about some no-defense game between two random teams, Texas and Oklahoma, while ignoring the tense Harvard-Cornell game, where Harvard’s undefeated season is on the line.

This postseason really has been an Earl Weaver wet dream.

Best Bet for the weekend: bringing two sweaters to The Head of the Charles Regatta; one to wear, and another to tie loosely around your neck.

Fall Event Avoidance Generator

Uh uh. Nah. Nope.


Here’s a helpful stupid bullshit generator. If you hear a phrase that could be generated by this, you want nothing to do with it:

Generic sentence structure:
“You know what would be fun? A B !”
“We never go to A B anymore”
“You never want to see the A  B anymore”
“Everyone is saying (the) A  B is fun”

The boy gets it. No fun.

Column A:
pumpkin
apple
foliage
farm
corn
paint
country
cider
leaf
Salem
ghost
hay
craft
harvest
waterfront
art(s)
linen

Column B:
picking
watch
night
brunch
harvest
fair
decorating
fest(ival)
party
trail
tour
picnic
community event
ride
celebration
exhibition
stroll
maze
train
auction
5K

This will decidedly NOT be fun. At all.

“Everyone is saying the Foliage Trail is fun!”
“You know what would be fun? Farm night!”
“We never go to the Cider Stroll anymore.”

Still no.

Yes “harvest” is in both columns; you especially want to avoid anything with “Harvest”.

This generator can be a force for good if you change the generic sentences:

“Isn’t this when you and your {relation} go(es) to the A B ?”

Relation:
Mother
Aunt
Friends

“Isn’t this when you and your mom go to the Harvest Festival?”

Look who’s out in public again after 20 months!

(Publishing note: there was a Monday holiday, but the woke counter-holiday cancels that out. Usual schedule prevails. )

The NE Revolution is clearly quitely inspiring the other local squadrons. And maybe some Marathon participants, too.

It’s like his father who is the district attorney said: You can’t script October.

New England Patriots with the same record as the sure-to-go-undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. Season back on.

Kevin Kiermaier only likes white rappers.

And that, is why you always DESTROY your cellphone rather than turn it over to the League.

Good job, UMass. Good effort, UConn.

Baseball writers: enforce the unwritten rules, but don’t follow the written rules.

Kyrie. MAGA folk hero. And still not our problem anymore.

Cakes are cooking for Jerry Trupiano, Kate Walsh, Summer Sanders, Ed Ellis, Paul Pierce, and Jimin.

I bet Dean Wormer knows how many people cared that Dan Shaughnessy’s streak of covering Red Sox playoff games in person ended last week.

I guess Coach Flores didn’t have institutional knowledge about Tom Brady. Sad.

Hazel Mae? Yes, yes she may. She may indeed.

If the SF Giants didn’t want insensitive jokes about their GM’s name then they shouldn’t have hired a terrorist. What?

Smoltz is no Glavine.

Hey there Gang participating in a coordinated effort to pump the tires of a rookie QB who has been good in five games and start fitting him for a red jacket or is it a gold one? This week’s Phrase that Pays is “an incurable case of bobo-ism.”

Frank Caliendo; meet Vaughn Meader.

Courtney Vandersloot. What are you gonna do? Tough series loss, Connecticut Sun.

Saddest Marathon Day ever.

I wish I could bet on the Glazers never having had a black friend. Thanks a lot, Senate President Karen E. Spilka!

Chaim. Owning. Or perhaps leasing at a very favorable rate.

Orange Line Update: Trains are returning to regularly scheduled service.

John Cusack! A different Barstool Dave!! Craig Calaterra!!!

Mina Kimes cares more than you do.

“Intellectually, we baseball media types are a breed apart.” “What the fuck is a ground rule double?” Same people.

Congrats on the Training Camp sex, Stihdsy.

Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road and tryin’ to make ends meet
Playin’ all the bars, sleepin’ in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street
No, we didn’t have much money
We barely made enough to survive
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play, people came alive

Rock and roll band, everybody’s waitin’
Gettin’ crazy, anticipatin’
Love, and music, play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dancin’ in the streets of Hyannis
We were getting pretty good at the game
People stood in line and didn’t seem to mind
You know everybody knew our name
Livin’ on rock and roll music
Never worried ’bout the things we were missin’
When we got up on stage and got ready to play, everybody’d listen

Rock and roll band, everybody’s waitin’
Gettin’ crazy, anticipatin’
Love, and music, play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Playin’ for week in Rhode Island
A man came to the stage one night
He smoked a big cigar
Drove a Cadillac car and said
“Boys, I think this band’s outtasight
Sign a record company contract!
You know I’ve got great expectations!
When I hear you on the car radio
You’re gonna be a sensation!”

Rock and roll band, everybody’s waitin’
Gettin’ crazy, anticipatin’
Love, and music, play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

It was recently pointed out that we lost both Fred Travalena and Danny Gans in the same year, 2009.

Maybe the four backup O linemen should be the starters?

Fun Fact: Incredibly, Back to the Future 2 correctly predicted the Vegas Golden Knights would defeat the Seattle Kraken 4-3!

Ain’t no beaches in Brockton.

Honk if you remember Walt Hriniak.

Gruden wasn’t and isn’t wrong about Goodell.

News Item: Springfield Thunderbirds return to the ice at the MassMutual Center Saturday.

So it’s Houston as the ALCS opponent then? Lousy cheaters.

Scott Zolak is demonstrably terrible at his job as a color commentator.

Jim Kaat. 40 acres and a jadrool.

Mention TurtleCunt, Kirkie you coward!

This Mac Jones credit cake tastes terrible. And such small portions!

All this will be lost. Like tears in rain.

Can one claim a moral victory from a loss that meant Coach Bill can’t call himself the Owl any longer?

But, but the evening lottery number was 1-9-7-8! Poor, irrelevant Dan.

Go look up Floyd Giebel and get back to me.

Dondero, who nobody normally reacts to, opining about the art of entertaining, is fucking entertaining. A paradox.

It’s almost like Gilmore was malingering. Aloha, Stephon.

It’s also preseason for those crying about preseason NHL officials.

Get (h)er, Urb!

Johnny Lawrence is going to be good once he gets rid of the hardo High School head coach.

JD Martinez sprained his ankle tripping over a base? Only in baseball.

Bubba Wallace winning at Talladega was even more impressive considering he was pulled over three times by the police during the race.

Please bring Bucky Dent to every game against the Red Sox, NYY.

Produce jockeys are now trying to denigrate Super Bowl rings and Hall of Fame gameplans. Technology was a mistake. All of it.

Is there minor league professional lacrosse?

Hitting range balls before a charity scramble is a clown move.

It’s always funny to me when the pregame show has to hype up NFL games for two hours and then has to be throw in the “stay tuned to ESPN for some great WNBA action!”

Schefty breaking out the MAN WALKS ON MOON headline font for the SHOCKING release of Gilmore. FFS.

Ha! You call that a turnip?

Good luck to the talented and delightful Katie Nolan on her next project which I will never watch or listen to.

Imagine paying for a $28 shirt in 4 monthly payments.

The 15: sex positive.

Hey gang of enjourtainerulists, this week’s Phrase that Pays is “Respect the art.”

Who knew paying Steve Buckley to watch Leo Durocher on The Munsters wasn’t a viable business model?

I drink a lot
I get naked a lot
I like man coverage for my Defense
I keep it simple and I let the Players Play

That halftime show is going to cure racism. You watch.

Blue Line Update: Delays of up to 15 minutes due to an earlier signal problem at Orient Heights.

Rehab worked fine for me, but I didn’t spend the whole time arguing with everyone there about the illuminati.

Kyrie. Not our problem.

Marisa Ingemi only got another beat writing job because the league expanded, caller.

Arcand looks like the 3rd runner up in a Jason Segel lookalike contest.

Oh remember my darling
When spring is in the air.
And the bald headed birds
Are whisp’ring ev’rywhere.
You can see them walking
Southward in their dirty underwear.
That’s Tennessee Bird walk.

Gotta win this one, Connecticut Sun.

What’s this about Pandora Peaks being back in the news?

Panthers GM Scott Fitterer has already made 8 trades in his first year on the job: Traded away: QB Teddy Bridgewater, OT Greg Little, LB Denzel Perryman, Traded for: QB Sam Darnold, CB Stephon Gilmore, CB CJ Henderson, DE Darryl Green, K Ryan Santoso. Wheeling and dealing.

Somebody primary challenge Spilka. Please. I wanna bet on sports in the Commonwealth!

Fandom = delusion. That’s why I don’t consider myself a fan. I’m simply an educated observer who prefers one particular outcome over the other. If you’re not hating the teams you root for 90% of the time, you’re doing it wrong.

Honk if you remember Garber’s Gorillas.

Really though; doinking the upright should be worth 4 points.

Now which one is Vanessa Carlton and which one is Michelle Branch?

I don’t think that crowd was chanting ‘Let’s go, Brandon!”

The Ringer has recorded TWO separate podcasts in which some white dudes gather to rewatch The Depahded, yet not a single iota of WNBA content in sight … at least be original in your brazen disrespect!

This has to be one of the greatest Red Sox teams of the Covid Era.

The joke’s on the Athletic; Buckley purchased an entire bolt of vintage uniform flannel at the linen auction!

We can’t believe it either.

The Red Sox are giving the thumbs-up from the hospital bed.

Kyrie is anti-vax AND going to use it as an excuse to skip games? I’d say he’s playing 3D chess but I don’t think he believes in that level of geometry.

Alex Guerrero can’t get cuffed and frog-marched soon enough.

I think the Bruins have a netminder that can steal you a game. Finally.

Hi Weather Girl! Panties or bra? LOL

I think Dean Wormer knows how many times previous Belichick has been likened to an owl.

Kirk! Aiden! Talk about Aiden, Kirk you coward!

Cakes are cooking for Andrew ‘Dice’ Clay, Hersey Hawkins, Erika Eleniak, and Jake Westbrook.

When it comes to frozen Walmart pizza, the name I think of is “Dave Portnoy”

When it comes to deciding which is worse, I used to think it was nostalgia bias, but as of late I have come around to believing what’s actually worse is recency bias.

Have more gimmicky singing shows, Fox.

Jamie Collins? No Interest.

Keep up the non-losing streak, New England Revolution!

Hey gang, this week’s Phrase that Pays is “multiple un-named sources.”

There are zero normal women in law enforcement.

Blue Line: Delays of up to 15 minutes due to a maintenance train inspecting the overhead wires. Trains may be asked to stand by at stations.

Now it’s apple picking weather.

If there are any Hollywood guys reading. . .the athlete that you could make a GREAT movie about would be Big Bill Tilden. I promise you: there is no other story like that one anywhere else in sports.

Maybe if Belichick was a Dr. Robert Leonard client he’d get some positive press.

Why don’t they build the whole plane out of effort?

Jerry was a race car driver
He drove so god-damned fast.
Never did win no checkered flag
But he never did come in last.

Jets WR Jeff Smith, not at practice today, was in a car crash heading to the facility this morning, source said. He will be on the injury report today with details of what he’s dealing with.

That Blair! Amirite?

That was a pretty ugly half of football. Looked like two teams and offenses that kinda miss the HOF franchise QBs they used to have. #NotYourDadsPatriotsvs.Saints

Honk if you remember the Mercury division of the Ford Motor Company.

Emmy Award-winning Katie Nolan is a free agent.

Daughtry is a super underrated band. I’ve probably said it before- but I’ll say it again.

CBS has three FBI shows?

Maybe people act like a jerk to Bob Kraft because they know they can get away with it.

The Day Drew Almost Died

(Sung to the tune of Don McLean’s “American Pie.”)

A long, long time ago…
I can still remember how that QB used to make me smile.
And I thought if he had the chance,
That he could make Krafty Bob dance,
And maybe we’d be happy for a while.

But Parcells leaving made me shiver,
And Pete Carroll could not deliver.
Good news on the doorsteps;
Tom Brady would soon get more reps.

I can’t remember if I cheered,
When I read that his artery was sheared,
But I sure know that Coach Bill lied,
The day Drew almost died.

So bye bye cerebral statue guy.
Threw the passes to the D-line,
Or hit the corners in stride.
And Nick and Ron were drinking whiskey and rye,
Singing “Drew is such a nice classy guy”.
Drew is such a nice classy guy.

Does Drew even read his Book of Plays?
Then why’d he just pass it to the Tampa Bays,
If the Coach didn’t tell him so?
You don’t believe in gaining yards,
You can’t be saved by Parcells and Cafar…do.
And can you teach me how to move real slow?

Well, I know the media’s in love with him,
‘cause I saw one slurpin’ on his Jim,
He got down on his knees,
Man, I dig that dig-nity.

I was a lonely Globie in Foxboro,
With a speed-dial line to Tom Donohoe.
But I knew I had nowhere left to go,
The day Drew almost died.

I started singing,
Bye bye cerebral statue guy,
Threw the passes to the D-line,
Or hit the corners in stride.
And Nick and Ron were drinking whiskey and rye,
Singing “Drew is such a nice classy guy”.
Drew is such a nice classy guy.

Now for five years we been on our own,
Zeffross Moss grows fat, and we’ve had Michael Stone,
But that’s not how it used to be.
When the Statue took a nut crushing sack,
With skills he borrowed from Mike Tomczak,
And footwork that made him look, like a tree.

Oh, and while the Statue was on the turf,
Tommy led the Patriots rebirth.
The Drew era was adjourned,
No more picks would be returned,
And while Borges ripped the coach for Starks,
The QB moved to Orchard Park,
And we raised banners in the dark,
The day Bledsoe almost died…

We were singing,
Bye bye cerebral statue guy,
Threw the passes to the D-line,
Or hit the corners in stride.
And Nick and Ron were drinking whiskey and rye,
Singing “Drew is such a nice classy guy”.
Drew is such a nice classy guy.

Tall, strong slinger with a broken finger,
Passes not complete but they sure were zingers.
Six and two but falling fast.
Drew often ended up on the grass,
Whenever he tried for a forward pass.
With the jokes in the press box giving Coach such sass.

Now Mo Lewis’ hit was sweet perfume,
As the stench of Bledsoe’s failures loomed,
We all got up to dance,
As the new guy got a chance.
Oh, as Brady played with nerves of steel,
The Statue’s limits were soon revealed.
Six Banners now hang above the field,
Where Drew, he nearly died.

We started singing,
Bye bye cerebral statue guy,
Threw the passes to the D-line,
Or hit the corners in stride.
And Nick and Ron were drinking whiskey and rye,
Singing “Drew is such a nice classy guy”.
Drew is such a nice classy guy.

And there we were down in Foxboro,
A QB lookin’ oh so slow,
With another I-N-Teeeeeee.
Drew be nimble, Drew be sacked,
Mo nearly broke poor Drew’s back,
But he played with dignity-y-y.

Oh, and as I watched him dive off the stage,
Tameeka’s disks cost 1.2 mil to assuage.
Max Lane could not repel,
Made Reggie White fast as a gazelle.
And as the blames piled high into the night,
Couldn’t be Drew, he was alright,
I saw Borges laughing with delight,
The day Drew almost died.

He was singing,
Bye bye cerebral statue guy,
Threw the passes to the D-line,
Or hit the corners in stride.
And Nick and Ron were drinking whiskey and rye,
Singing “Drew is such a nice classy guy”.
Drew is such a nice classy guy.

I met a man who sang the blues,
And I asked him for some happy news,
But he just smiled and turned away.
I looked up that great box score,
Of the Minnesota game some years before,
But even then some said that Bledsoe couldn’t play.

And ar the Globe: the writers screamed,
Nutscrubbers cried, and Ron Borges schemed.
But not a word was spoken;
The AP feed was broken.
And the three men I admire true;
The Tuna, Don King and Cerebral Drew,
They caught the last train for Montana, too.
The day the Drew almost died.

And they were singing,
Bye bye cerebral statue guy,
Threw the passes to the D-line,
Or hit the corners in stride.
And Nick and Ron were drinking whiskey and rye,
Singing “Drew is such a nice classy guy”.
Drew is such a nice classy guy.

They were singing,
Bye bye cerebral statue guy,
Threw the passes to the D-line,
Or hit the corners in stride.
And Nick and Ron were drinking whiskey and rye,
Singing “Drew is such a nice classy guy”.
Drew is such a nice classy guy.

Still sometimes I get a strange pain inside.
