I don’t know how many of you are friends with me on Facebook but I’m assuming a lot since that’s where I’m getting most of my traffic. Please tell your friends…
Anyways, apparently I’m a glutton for punishment and had sports radio on yesterday every time I was in the car. So ride it with Toucher and Rich, lunch with whoever was filling in for Gresh and Zo, and my ride home from work was Felger and Maz handing it off to DA. It was during the hand off that I heard that last of the calls of the day and like it so much I made it my Facebook status (thus me asking who’s friends and who’s not).
For all that we may have been down yesterday, that call really made me laugh. It made me laugh for all the bandwagon jumpers that were just like that guy. Clearly the call was a joke, but really, we were inundated with TONS of bandwagon folks.
But the reason for the headline is this; it does suck. It sucks that they lost for sure but what really sucks is that sports radio is going to analyze all this stuff for the next two weeks. I mean, there’s nothing else to talk about now. It’s like a sports black hole around the MLB All Star game in the summer. We don’t embrace college sports in Boston, the Celtics are mediocre and not worth talking about, and the Bruins are great but we’re just waiting for the playoffs to start at this point.
And the ultimate dick punch yesterday? Was getting this email from Modells in my Inbox:
The team that played better, won. That’s the bottom line. I’ve moved on, and I wish sports radio would too. Enough with the Gisele and Welker not making the catch. I really don’t want to hear anymore about it. Yes we know with a healthy Gronk the team probably wins that game.
Wake me up when it’s draft time and we have our two first and two seconds. This team isn’t going anywhere and has a chance to really add some pieces in the draft.
Look forward not backward.
