Giant dummy-head and adjective challenged hobbit Ben Volin, Senior NFL writer for the Boston Globe, has a problem. Well, lots of problems, one of which is an over-reliance on using the word ‘interesting’. We have mocked it here earlier:
Why then does he prefer a different descriptor for the work of his Globe collegue Nora Princiotti?
Once could be happenstance. Twice? Coincidence. But three times looks like condescension. It’s, as they say, a Bad Look.
Jonatha Firestone is a BJBSJ Intern.
During this time of crisis and uncertainty, I am honored to be allowed this opportunity to thank you for being a loyal reader of BJBSJ, and to share with you what we are doing to keep delivering our reporting and opinion in the manner in which you have become accustomed.
Much of the Editorial Staff has been moved to off-site secure locations, be it either their individual homes or the closest Regional Redoubt. Our writers and stringers are prepared to continue to file remotely. And we few, we happy few remaining interns wish to thank Managing Editor Steven Bosell for allowing us to shelter in place at the BJBSJ Offices. The Merrimack Valley is lovely.
Even with the COVID-19 related disruptions to sports and popular culture, the past two weeks have shown no shortage of bad sports media takes, be they hot takes, or #coldandgross takes. BJBSJ will stand and challenge those takes, virus or no virus, games or no games.
Thank you again, and know that we are #AloneTogether in this. Stout hearts.
Jonatha Firestone, BJBSJ Intern
