Alleged comedian Dane Cook has lower ratings than Dennis and Callahan this morning after stiffing an on-line audience out of his performance on the Boston Strong benefit last night.
Boston Herald Patriots reporter Jeff Howe led the charge against Cook on twitter last night, earning him a round of attaboys from his fellow sports media members. Howe was on Toucher and Rich this morning to talk about what he did.
I understand the outrage over the principle involved here – Cook is a moron for doing this – but I’m a little baffled that people are actually complaining about *not* being able to see Dane Cook.

Ellsbury ‘changed the game’ against Phillies – Sean McAdam looks at the big performance on the basepaths by the Red Sox centerfielder last night. Gordon Edes also looks at the night, which ended with the Phillies giving Ellsbury second base.
Not everyone was impressed though.
Earlier this week, Massarotti stated that a ball dropped in between Ellsbury and Stephen Drew over the weekend because they are both Scott Boras clients on one-year deals and are trying not to get hurt in a contract year.
Fast forward to this afternoon, when even money has Massarotti saying Ellsbury is selfishly stealing bases to pad his stats in a contract year.
