In Memowiam: Mensa Matt

Our poor sweet prince.

He’s gone. And we couldn’t do nothing about it.

Yeah, he threatened to brutally murder Verizon employees, but who hasn’t? Especially one day after pledging to be more gentle and patient.

Was this wrong to say?

All we can do now is hope he finds his way back to us and enjoy this collage of the fun he provided us. It’s for the good times.

Ray Price for the good times, babe.

Keep reading, pal.

Back off, numrod.

His own worst enemy.

You’re in safe hands.


Don’t be sad. We’re cewebrating the laughs he gave us.

Damn.

What up y’all?

He gave us so much. The only one he couldn’t save was himself.

Matt was a Twitter masterpiece.

On Matt’s final night before Twitter excommunication, he had some valuable words. Unfortunately he gave the advice to David Price without heeding it himself.

This is but a small fraction of the gold Mensa Matt gave us. The best way to honor him is to always remember what he believed in most:

PASTA IS A GOOD KID!

Statement Regarding Our Content From July 3rd

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Late last night I became aware of an issue with Patrick Scartelli’s “Cleaning Out The Sports Junk Drawer 7/3.”

A reader called attention to the following literary anomaly during the holiday:

While we appreciate Mr. Rifkin’s keen eye and understand the concern about the appearances here, BJBSJ takes its responsibility seriously as a voice above the fray of politics. It’s not even in our purview. Our mission statement is clear:

BJBSJ is a news gathering association of concerned citizens designed to combat hottakes, specifically as it pertains to Boston sports.

To many, “stick to sports” has become a polarizing, toxic phrase. But we believe in it for this particular site. Make no mistake, we truly love and cherish our political system and freedom of expression here in America, but we won’t ever apologize for keeping this an ideology free zone. You can rest assured that great care goes into being the best coverage in the business. And for those who just want to be like a kid again and just watch the games without a care, we will continue to be your safe haven. That’s a promise.

That said, we pledge to do better anyway. An error of this nature will never be made again. We appreciate your readership and your trust.

*Mr. Scartelli is on vacation at Baxter State Park in Maine and could not be reached for comment.

Chris Norton is Director of Human Resources for BJBSJ, a position he has held since August 2018. He resides in Middletown, RI.

BJBSJ Statement Regarding Current David Ortiz Speculation

For Immediate Release:

I don’t deal in rumors and gossip, especially when it comes to David Ortiz.

Guess what I do know to be true?

He’s the ballplayer who played his heart out for us for over a decade.

He’s the man who made us believe that anything is possible and anything can be overcome.

He’s the hero who showed us how to be strong again after the terrorists tried to break us.

He’s the charitable man who has taken care of so many people here and in his home country, especially sick children.

And he’s a good person who didn’t deserve to be hunted and gunned down by animals.
