13 years, five Super Bowls, three Rings, a million memories…


This morning, the New England Patriots will host an “important announcement.” And, since Al Michaels can’t keep a secret, the world already knows that this occasion will be Tedy Bruschi announcing his retirement.

I know it’s a fact in the NFL – the players you love WILL retire at some point (unless they are named “Brett Favre,” in which case they retire, cry at a press conference, come back, retire, come back, ad nauseum). But that knowledge does not make it easier when one of our beloved hangs up his cleats.

As Patriots fans, we were truly blessed to have a player like Bruschi on our team for his entire career. And what a career it was. I have so many wonderful Bruschi memories, it’s hard to count. Playing with his kids on the field, his snow “fireworks,” stepping out onto the field at Fenway Park mere months after having a stroke…

Tedy, we’re going to miss you like crazy!

Football season is upon us…

You know it’s almost football season when Dunkin Donuts unveils its Patriots-themed cups…

Patriots cup

While moving my sister’s crap into her newly purchased house today (yay!), I had to razz her boyfriend’s brother, who is *gasp* a Buffalo Bills fan by proudly showing off my Dunkin Donuts Patriots cup.

Two weeks. Two looooooooooooong weeks.

Still sick

I have the cold that just will not die! I think it’s been more than ten years since I’ve had a cold that has kicked my ass like this. And it won’t go away, no matter how much OJ I drink, hours I sleep, NyQuil I chug… I’m still hacking up a lung and blowing my nose. Damn the person who spread these germs to me! Whoever you are! *waves fist*

On the bright side, football season is quickly approaching, as evidenced by my fantasy football league holding its draft today. And when I tell you I hate my team, I really hate my team. Both Tom Brady and Wes Welker were swept up right from under me! I ended up drafting *gasp* Phillip Rivers for my QB. At least if he sucks, thus making my team suck, I won’t care much. Worst case scenario, I drafted Baltimore’s Joe Flacco as my back-up.

I was able to draft Brandon Jacobs for running back (yay!) and at tight end I drafted Visanthe Shiancoe, who you might remember as the poor guy who was frontally nude on national television last season:


Brady’s back!


Tom Brady, oh how I’ve missed you.

Take your Sports Hub and cram it up your butts

This morning as I turned on my car, I heard something I never in a million years thought I would hear blaring from my radio. That would be the sound of P!nk on 104.1. It’s official. WBCN is now dead (except for HD radio apparently but who the hell as HD radio?) And for folks like me who own pitiful excuses for MP3 players, and who are too poor/cheap to pay for satellite radio, the whole thing really friggin sucks because, once again, another option has been pulled.

AND NO, despite my love of sports, I probably won’t listen to the new Sports Hub talk radio station. Have you seen the joke of a line-up? This switch has been years in the making and this is the best they could come up with?

Whoever thought it would be desirable to pair Douchy McDoucherson (Michael Felger) with Jerkoff McFuckface (Tony Massarotti) in the afternoon deserves a boot in the ass. What are they going to title the show, “We Hate All Boston Sports and Their Fans Suck… Show”? (Yeah, Tony… I have not, and will not, forget your little rant about Boston fans after your colleague and your newspaper ran an unsubstantiated rumor as fact the day before the Super Bowl and you were somehow shocked and appalled that we were pissed).

And I’m supposed to turn away from my beloved Dale and Holley midday for Scott Zolak and Gary Tanqueray Tanguay!? Are ya kidding me?!

The only chance Sports Hub had of winning me over was the Morning Drive because, let’s face it, Dennis and Callahan are pompous windbags with sticks crammed up their butts, but once again, major FAIL… Toucher and Rich’s move from ‘BCN provides nothing new and for fuck’s sake, Toucher is a self-proclaimed Jets fan! I’m supposed to listen to a Goddamn Jets fan on a Boston sports talk station!? You’re telling me that on two Monday mornings this season, the day after the Patriots hand the Jets major asswhippings, of course, I’m going to throw on good ol’ Sports Hub and Fred Toucher is going to happily discuss the previous days glorious events? No fucking way.

What the folks at CBS Radio should have done was throw a boatload of cash at Fitzy and given him a show at some point in the day. That, I would listen to. Maybe they could convince Dennis Eckersley to take a time slot once Jerry Remy returns to the booth. The Barstoolsports guys would be pretty awesome, too. Something, anything than what they have now.

Sports Hub. Blah!

ADDENDUM: OH! And at night they’re going to broadcast a show by the guy who did Miami Dolphins post-games?! AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE PATRIOTS’ OFFICIAL NETWORK!? Oh my God, I just threw up a little in my mouth. Go to hell, CBS Radio.
