    2020 Divisional Weekend Game Thread: Nevermore

    Scoff, laugh, or mock if you will, but I'm getting a very 2001 Pats vibe from the Titans.

    2019 Pats: Chase Winovich - Foxboro Fabio

    "Every idiot who goes about with a 'Merry Christmas' or 'free lunch for school kids' on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart.

    Commentator evaluation: Joe Buck

    4.5 for me. I hated his ridiculous pearl clutching over the Moss moon, but he's been growing on me over the last decade or so. I also think he's gotten better and better at getting the best out of his color analysts. I think he and Aikman have developed an especially good give and take rhythm...

    Commentator evaluation: Jim Nantz

    Golf is the only sport he seems to enjoy. I find him beyond boring doing the NFL. Although Romo has helped to loosen him up a bit, he still sounds to me like someone who simply doesn't enjoy the game.

    The Ringer

    I think the intellectually lazy part is spot on. I used to listen to his podcast regularly but found his takes on music, movies, and TV were too often superficial and based on a kind of faux-contrarianism that was cringe-inducing, such as his early views on The Wire and The Simpsons. He also has...

    Prisco's idiocy is remarkably consistent. He was still calling Brady a system QB after he won 3 SBs.

    Goodnight Sweet Prince: Mark Sanchez Retires

    FWIW, Jerod Mayo said on a podcast last year that Sanchize was famous for repeatedly misidentifying who the "Mike" LB was when the Pats played the Jets.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    This is the new, "Some of my best friends are Jewish." It doesn't matter that women in the C-Suite are happy to profit from the routine objectification of women--it's still wrong and still offensive. And accusations of virtue-signalling are paper-thin rationalizations for just not giving a shit...

    Thank You, Hondo

    This is so sad—one of the true icons of Boston sports and the NBA. I have distant but fond memories of watching those early ‘70s Celtics teams and realizing that no one could guard him, not for long anyway.

    Nick Cafardo dies at 62

    It’s best to be a person deeply loved by others, as was clearly the case with Nick. RIP.

    Big changes at CSNNE and

    I like Keefe because he's amusing, has a nerdy sense of humor, and loves sports. He actually pays attention to games--sadly a rarity among too many host on both EEI and 98.5 (Mazz especially)--and isn't a blowhard. I would love to see him paired with another younger host and get a drive time or...

    Big changes at CSNNE and

    I feel bad for Rich Keefe. He and Holley (when Dale was out) was some of the best sports radio around. Two good-humored, knowledgeable guys who love sports--no hot takes, no lame attempts at frat-boy humor.
