By the BJBSJournal staff

Twenty years of combined success is no match for the yappa-yappa-yappa.

Winning over Red Sox fans is easy, even easier than winning a trade war with China!

Gary Tanguay self-identifies as an actor.

A mistake repeated more than once is a decision.

Helicopters can’t fly through mountains.

DJ Bean is even less talented at songwriting than he is at hot taking.

You can’t even joke around about slitting people’s throats anymore. The fuck is this world coming to?

Luke Voit is simply a naturally talented power hitter.

A significant portion of readers of The Athletic are utterly fascinated by the intersection of sports and pop culture, but only if it happened fifty to eighty years ago.

The Red Sox ownership group will gladly admit in a statement their fans are racist, if it will lead to smidgen of social justice clout.

That’s a mushroom cloud. That’s atomic.

Charlotte Wilder could teach a killer master class on the anatomy of a joke.

Neither WEEI management nor Gary Tanguay understand what ‘getting fired’ means.

It isn’t an act. Ben Volin really is that dumb.

The Red Sox traded likable, League MVP winning Mookie Betts for sketchy Alex Verdugo, and they expect you to be fine with that.

Tanya Ray Fox lost followers this year.

Richard Dietsch is reading this right now. Because I typed out the words ‘Richard Dietsch.’

Bro’s before Ho’s. *(Unless that Ho is Evan Lazar.)

Ted Sarandis has a powerful legal team.

12/30/2020 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

Christmas is past. On to next year.

Who has even criticized Cam Newton for running in touchdowns? Complete straw man argument.

More a wet Christmas than a White Christmas, amirite?

“DJ Bean” sounds like a pseudonym someone would use at a bathhouse. Coincidence?

Hey, haters and losers, this Week’s Phrase that Pays is ‘Your not important, their was fraud.’

Oh you have migraines? Maybe try putting down your phone and not following up every tweet.

Covid truther Gerry Callahan left the house with such a Boo Radley-ian frequency in 2020, I’m beginning to think Tom Robinson moved in next door.

Athlete Account of the Year: Ryan Kalish.

Cam feels terrible all the momentum disappeared after Folk’s missed extra point!

Some poor bastard in the Mexican-American War bought the farm because his nominal guardian angel Clarence Oddbody was sleeping off his rum punch.

Sometimes you just need to have a bacon cheeseburger and a glass of red wine at 3:45pm, ya know?

Minihane making a charitable endeavor about his own personal vendettas? I am shocked.

If that dummy’s website name wasn’t a direct quote it would no doubt be titled “All Politic’s Are Local.”

If Cam does everything Bill has asked of him, maybe Bill should ask him to pass for more than 30 total yards this Sunday. Just a thought.

Just don’t call Nick Saban late for dinner!

Energy Principle. As toe off occurs from ground, wrist is reaching its extension point at the end of upward arm motion ensuring energy transfer & transition into the propulsive push into ball flight.

Best smile in Boston Sports media? Keith Smith in a landslide.

More #Rams news: The team placed WR Cooper Kupp on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Jared Carrabis searches his name on Twitter. You know what to do.

Emmanuel Acho makes me think of the GEICO ads that needed to explicitly mention Brian Orakpo’s name so we’d know who the hell he was.

Been feeling off and unsure last few days and now that I realize it was a full moon in Cancer last night it all makes sense.

We drank a toast to innocence. We drank a toast to time. Reliving in our eloquence. Another ‘auld lang syne’. The beer was empty and our tongues were tired, and running out of things to say. She gave a kiss to me as I got out and I watched her drive away. Just for a moment I was back at school and felt that old familiar pain. And as I turned to make my way back home the snow turned into rain.

The olds love the touch lamps with the 3-way bulbs.

Red Line: Delays of up to 10 minutes due to an official investigating a report of a person walking on the tracks between South Station and Downtown Crossing.

The Great and General Court is in no hurry to legalize sports betting in the Commonwealth. At all.

Liking Blink 182 should be grounds for a recall petition.

I think the Greenteamers are gonna like this Pritchard kid. What? What did I say? Oh, that. And that.

It breaks my heart to see more discarded masks littering the ground than losing scratch tickets. We need this pandemic to end.

Honk if you don’t forget auld acquaintance.

I liked the Cheez-It Bowl better when it was the Carquest Bowl.

RIP @transientexist.

Even Dumb Movies like Wonder Woman 84 can gets suckers to watch.

Still Team Stidhsy.

Merry Xmas!

Good luck this semi-fake season Celtics. Anything is possible.

Just so DJ Bean is clear, the Sports Junk Drawer is not click bait, either.

Eggnog. Arguably the best nog.

More tackles broken in the backfield than any game I can ever remember.

I just assumed every strip club has it’s own assigned NBA player, the way country clubs and muni courses each have a golf pro.

Does Chris Gasper have a holiday scarf collection? Just asking the question.

Nothing is a better remedy for seasonal affective disorder than a trip to Puerto Vallarta somebody else paid for.

I guess the DSM-5 doesn’t recognize ‘Attention From Strangers-Deficit Disorder’ as an actual malady. Maybe the 6 will.

So Bob Ryan just learned about the Tuck Rule, and Twix, I guess the Tylenol Product Tampering Poisonings from 1982 comes next.

If you want Bruins news that occasionally beats the big boys you check out Jimmie Murphy at whatever blog he does! Days of Y’Orr, maybe?

Cam Newton is actually playing pretty great if you’re not using traditional metrics like completions and yards and touchdowns and wins!

Cakes are cooking for Jorma Kaukonen, Bill Rodgers, Carla Bruni, and Finn Wolfhard.

Paul Pierce is The Truth. And The Truth belongs in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Cube steak prepared the right way is nothing to sleep on.

“Battle ax” – That’s what the goalies call their sticks. Only ice hockey insiders know that.

Here’s hoping for the Next Man Up at the sports desk at Channel 5.

So I won an Amazon Fire Stick at a holiday raffle. But I can’t find where you’re supposed to fill it with lighter fluid. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Speaking of fire, that poor busboy at the Cocoanut Grove thinks N’Keal Harry has passed him as the most unfairly reviled person in the Greater Boston Area.

Ron Rivera says in looking around the league, the Washington Football Team decided a fine for Dwayne Haskins was in line with what has been the standard this year. No suspension or taking reps away.

Orange Line: Delays of up to 10 minutes southbound due to a train with an earlier mechanical problem approaching North Station.

‘It’s a Fine Conjunction.’ – Evan Lazar, probably.

News Item: supermodel Stella Tennant dies at age 50. When did she play for the Steelers?

What can WEEI do to boost their ratings? Lou can’t dye his hair any darker! He’s all out of ideas!

WARRIOR Ice Arena is humming with the sound of Bruins practice!

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be out of sight.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yuletide gain
Next year all our troubles will be miles away.

Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithfull friends who are near to us
Will be dear to us
Once more.

Somedays soon we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
So have yourself a merry little Christmas, now.

Pasta is a Good Kid AND a Good Guy.

Gasper’s been singing Jedd Fisch’s praises for months, probably.


Honk if you remember the Boston Garden’s smaller ice surface.

Dogs seem to love Christmas. They get IT.

Bryant beats UMass. I’d weep, but my tears were vacated.

Am I nuts, or does that Patriots practice setlist feature a lot of Young Jeezy?

Lotta closet space over at WCVB. Apparently.

Have a safe Youksmas Eve.

Tidy 37 point game, Tre Mitchell. Go U! Go UMass!

Anyone on a bike today who isn’t trying to collect two dollars from Lane Meyer should be arrested on sight.

You only have the Christmas Blend Blonde Roast ready, Starbucks? What kind of operation are you running here?

Honk if you’ve ever cut through a frozen cranberry bog to get to Gillette Stadium in the snow.

Don’t crowd the plow.
