Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer 7/31

Emptying out the sports vacation suitcase…

No one needs a vacation so much as the man who just had one. -Elbert Hubbard

I’m hearing that the Red Sox were in on everything.

Congratulations to Rodney Harrison on his induction into the New England Patriots Hall of Fame. We’re all glad we got you.

I wonder if Tom Brady posted that Instagram video of him and Viv jumping into the water knowing it would outrage a section of the population, and then he’d be motivated by their outrage, like Rodney was great at doing.

Weird how the ‘You are what your record says you are’ saying doesn’t apply to the guy who said it.

Best of luck on WZOU WEEI mornings to Hillman, and Danni, and Fitzy, and possibly another character borrowed wholesale from Touch & Rich’s show. ‘Sarge’ maybe. Zoinks!

Color me premature, but I think this Tacko Fall kid has the makings of a local folk hero.

Red Sox winning two of three from the Rays, and then three of four from the Yankees shouldn’t feel like a disappointment, but that’s the reality at the end of this July.

And I’m still not sure how accurate ESPN’s Strike Zone Box thingie is.

Not every Chiefs Fan is an ‘ew, Brady kisses his son! On the lips!’ weirdo, but every ‘ew, Brady kisses his son! On the lips!’ weirdo is a Chiefs Fan.

This is all I have to say about young Bronny and his AAU team; I have no idea what AAU stands for.

I bet Shirley Leung would love it if Mindy Kaling opened a microbrewery. Quirky!

Cakes are cookin’ today for Zac Brown and B.J. Novak!

Janos was cancelled? News to me.

Well I think it’s just the tops that Minihane let Blind Mike draw the t-shirt design they’re selling.

Could really use a ‘prove it’ year from Sony Michel. I mean, what’s this guy done?

It’s a shame they couldn’t have started production on Top Gun: Maverick back when Jimmy Garner was still alive.

We’ll see you when we see you, Kacey McDonnell. Aloha.

Best Patriots Coverage, or performance art? You decide!

It never fails to amaze me how many items require exactly one minute of cooking in a microwave.

I hope the Visionary Fenway Rooftop Gardens got watered enough during these recent heat waves.

Did I miss skinny ties coming back into and then out of fashion again?

Bootleg Barnicle says Filene’s Basement still has the best sales when you need a good pair of slacks.

Late July and the first rumblings of a ‘Changing of the Guard Atop the AFC East’ can be heard.

Big ups to Rhino Relocation out of Van Nuys, California. Great job, guys!

Zudy Apps Now?

Football returns in August.

My invite to The Ireland Fund’s Nantucket Celebration must have gotten lost in the mail.

Honk if you remember the Weylu in Saugus.

Best bet for this weekend: Short porch cheapies.
