12/23/2020 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

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.

Governor Baker wants #The15 to not meet in one indoor location.

Hey there gang, this week’s emergency backup Phrase that Pays is “Daddy doesn’t make the rules.”

James Harden got strawberry juices all over Olojuwan’s retired jersey? Oh no.

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.

Best bet for the weekend: Hatrack Newton starts.

Have a safe Youksmas Eve.

Where’s Hunter Renfroe? With the Red Sox!

Giants OC Jason Garrett has tested positive for COVID-19. Freddie Kitchens will call plays for the team on Sunday.

Medical doctors, dentists, veterinarians. That’s it.

You’re sure Manish Mehta covered the Jets and not the Patriots for the NYDN paper? If you say so.

If you live in an area expected to get the dryer powdery snow, you are exempt from making sure to charge your devices and checking in on elderly neighbors.

Spoiler:  the hardware store is out of shear pins.

You know there’s a big payout in one of the Megabucks/MegaMillions/Poweball games when there’s a Channel 7 News van at Ted’s Stateline Mobil.

#GiftofSox, anyone?

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.

“Blog” is short for “belong” gentlemen. That’s what we all need. That’s where we’re going.

Dale Arnold has lifts in his Timberlands.

Entitled Town will return.

Best bet for the weekend: great deals at the Lord & Taylor going out of business sale.

I’m making a gingerbread replica of WARRIOR Ice Arena.

Dotty Parton has great knockers.

Some say if you tweet like Katie Nolan long enough you become her.

Life Hack: Increase your Twitter efficiency model by shortening “rookies” to “rooks.”

Why am I seeing mailboxes aligned parallel to the street, instead of the usual perpendicular? Is this like when people started lifting their windshield wipers up before a snowstorm?

@BPhillips_SB is really going to soil himself when Cam Newton passes for over 100 yards in a game some day!

It’s a bit of a relief not to have to constantly defend Tom Brady anymore.

Is everybody at WEEI a midget?

Honk if you ever went Christmas shopping at Downtown Crossing.

Another Life Hack: if you order on the Dunkin app, you can select “Light Ice” or something like that where they’ll put less ice, and it means you’ll actually get more beverage, aka more bang for your buck. Otherwise, it’s like, 80% ice.

Anyone know where I can get half a Hershey bar for $10.99? Preferably local. I’d drive from Bellingham for one.

I’m not sure Hop got his toe down inbounds.

I’m sure Corporate Kirk loves being forced to shill overpriced tee shirts on the marching orders of Davey Day Trader!

Thank God Marisa Ingemi didn’t take that job with Quibi.

Professional boxing is not what it once was.

Every broad can transgender by putting on a baseball hat. Simple.

MLB free agent Cory Kluber lives in Winchester during the off season? Does he deliver home heating oil too like he’s an MLB player in 1959?

Red Line Update: Delays of up to 15 minutes due to a train with an earlier mechanical problem at Davis.

Those Pats Pulpit writers sure do love themselves an 84 yards passing, 0 TDs and 2 INTs game! Smdh.

Giblets is a funny word. Giblets.

Of the two, Bridget has the prettier face. There; I said it.

State Farm’s dedication to trying to make Aaron Rodgers seem likable is admirable, I guess.

The color temperature is wrong on a lot of those Christmas lights I see on the houses out there in this town.

Despite being eligible to come off the COVID-19 reserve list, neither #Ravens RBs Mark Ingram or JK Dobbins are expected to play today. Gus Edwards will start for Baltimore.

Don’t you know that you’re toxic?
And I love what you do
Don’t you know that you’re toxic?

You’ll get that elusive win next full season UMass football.

I hope there are no supply chain issues with ribbon candy this holiday season.

‘Why did Bill the GM trade for WR depth during a pandemic?’ – Dummies.

NBA sked leak sez Kyrie is coming to play against his old team on Christmas? I’ll believe it when I sees it.

A game featuring Matt Nagy and Anthony Lynn coaching against each other would never end.

Looking out a dirty old window. Down below the cars in the city go rushing by. I sit here alone and I wonder why. Friday night and everyone’s moving.
I can feel the heat but it’s soothing, heading down. I search for the beat in this dirty town.

Trying to recognize people wearing masks out and about has let to some weird interior monologues, like “Is that Aunt Marge? No, it can’t be; she’s heavier. And dead.”

Beating a Harbro using a trick play just hits different.

Heinsohn; a tough loss for Celtics fans, but is Jerry Remy the best color commentator in Boston sports history? – The Baseball Paper

Sports media love ‘teams playing to lose’ storylines almost as much as they enjoy giving each other awards. Almost.

The Masters golf tournament in November. A tradition unlike any other, and unlike any other.

First Abby Chin dies and now this? Oh wait, she just got let go? My bad.

Peter King got the ‘Cancer that killed Alex Trebek’ Daily Double question wrong.

Haha, remember all those covfefe jokes? Good times.

  • Tired: I’m joining The Athletic.

Here’s hoping Dave Mondillo get the J.T. Watkins treatment.

Sure Jared Remy has had a few hiccups, but how come nobody ever investigated Tommy’s kids?

Hug your professional football team public relations directors a little tighter this morning.

In fairness, how would Volin get Cam’s jeans off with mittens on?

Good job illegally voting everyone.

Red Sox ownership must be kicking themselves that they didn’t delay the Alex Cora rehiring announcement and saved a week’s salary.

Blehhh!! Undrafted Free Agent Wide Reciever finds! Blehhhh!!!

How long is the In Memoriam segment of the B.E.T. Awards?

Tampa, when you have 3 WR1s, you have none.

Leslie Jones as Tommy’s replacement? Who says no?

A Treehouse Brewing taproom in every region of the Commonwealth. Sounds like a plan to me.

Donald J. Trump and Marisa Ingemi are free agents.

Please note that the BJBSJ Editorial Board also declined to endorse a candidate in 2016.

Is Bitcoin the plural of Bitcoin?

3 stolen livers = still 55.

If you didn’t leave the gayball chat, you would have known.

Gordon Hayward may opt out of the last year of his contract? It’s fortunate the Celtics have a lot of experience playing without him in the lineup, then.


Stop talking nonsense. You’re not leaving for Canada. And even if you did, you’re probably not getting your hat back from that stripper at that Montreal peeler.

This parade of nullities lining up to gleefully get their swings in on Bill Belichick would be disappointing were it not so predictable.

‘Tank your way to the Super Bowl!’ isn’t how it works.

My used car didn’t come with an owner’s manual. I have no idea how to change the clock to standard time. I hope someone can relate.

Los Angeles. Fake titties and fake titles.

I should have gotten this year’s copy of the Sears & Roebuck’s Wish Book by now.

I love benadryl. It’s so mid.

I’ve already forgiven Cam for his dreadful mistakes against the Bills thanks to his refreshingly blunt self-assessments that his mistakes are ‘unacceptable’.

Chris Berman is at the ‘Bob Hope wearing a hippie wig’ phase in his career.

NHL 3rd Alternate Sweater SZN.

Tabasco is now trending. Tremendous. #Cowboys

The play where Cam “missed” N’Keal Harry in the first quarter it’s HOSS Z Juke vs two-high. Defense has 3 over 2 on seam-hitches. The read for Cam in that case is the juke route (Edelman) isolated on a LB. As much as you want Cam to hit this, its the right read IMO.

What’s the plan for this cheese?

Who is the guy in the NFL on CBS production trailer who makes sure there’s never a good angle on the replay on Patriots plays and why is he a Jets fan?

You never see an old man eating a Twix.
