10/14/2020 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

This is Titletown, not a Second Banana Town.

Honestly, throwing a COVID party if you are an NFL team isn’t a bad idea. Other than the lawsuits and fines and loss of draft picks and lifetime ban.

Joe Haggerty would take a victory lap over the Bruins not signing Taylor Hall but his doctors have strongly advised against it.

When Twitter’s algorithm is tech-splaining journalism to people IN the media, we have a problem. Their engineers don’t understand clickbait and the process of disseminating legit sources better than I do. If I wanna call out BS with a quote tweet, that’s my prerogative.

Play the goal-scorers, Coach Arena!

Saddened to hear about the loss of Joe Morgan. I still remember his magic in ’88. Six, two, and room temperature. Rest in peace.

Cakes are cooking for Ralph Lauren, Greg Evigan, Beth Daniel, Keith Byars, and Arleen Sorkin.

News Item: Tractor-trailer hauling bananas rolls over on Massachusetts Turnpike in Boston.

Unfair! Give Pat the ball!

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

Dew they still brew Michelob, non Ultra?


Now I have to go watch a Keith Olbermann clip just to see if he says ‘YouTube’ with the same disgust in his voice as Jack Horner when he says ‘videotape’.

The Patriots REALLY don’t want to play Denver.

NFL water carrier blurb intentionally left blank. Free RapSheet!

Julie DiCaro should read a book.

I guess I’m happy for Not-Donald Sutherland Guy? Question mark?

Alex Smith comes back Sunday. Dak Prescott gets seriously injured. Coincidence?

I feel that WEEI has short-sightedly denied all of us an incomprehensible Larry Johnson artwork of a tree twirling a coach’s whistle on a lanyard.


Hey there negative testing gang! This week’s Phrase that Pays is “domino effect.”

Knock-Knock. ‘Who’s there?’ No one really; it’s a set-up leading to a humorous outcome, often contingent on a play on words!

After he passes, and the Nets win a title, can they say they won it for Mike Tyson?

Jane Wiedlin; you lost it, kid!

#LetBSPCook. Only if she wants to. She’s not obligated to cook. Obviously.

Favorite UFC KO? The next one. KWAPOW!!

I love my leaf blower that pushes 950 cfm and goes through a gallon of mix fuel in under 90 minutes.

Sue Bird. That’s it; that’s the post.

Peace up, A-Town down,
Yeah, ok, lil’ Jon Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah.

Who does Chris Berman look like now? Because it isn’t Chris Berman.

Bring back the veggie burger, Fenway!

Wait, I’m just not feeling my joints crack, other people can hear that?

I bet Bob Ryan enjoyed that bonus Tuesday NFL match.


Commas, how do they work?

A: Clyde Lovellette.

I want to run my team in Rogue Franchise mode in Madden 21.

Honk if you remember Roy Firestone.

I forgot to send Upton Bell a birthday card. I hope that doesn’t now make my team of writers all free agents!

NESN, always fair and balanced.

It wasn’t a muscle cramp Tony Romo. At all.

Hey stupid, maybe go running on Angel Moroni Boulevard, instead of way the hell out there on Puma Path.

Best bet for the weekend: An NFL source making Chris Mortensen look dumb.

Now they have time to star Off-Broadway in Iron Man: The Musical.

material from interviews, wire services, Twitter, other writers, league and team sourcesand #the15 were used in this column. And thank you to that demented Minifan who feels the to need to track @BJBSJournal’s follower count. We used to make the interns do that.
