On today’s Globe 10.0, Joe Sullivan and Chris Gasper will debate whether or not fans should boo the full-page ad that Jacoby Ellsbury took out in today’s Globe.
Would that surprise anyone?
This week has been a banner one for bang-your-head-on-the-desk sports talk radio storylines. Consider:
- Patriots win cheapened by “gift” pass interference call.
- Feigned outrage over Shawn Thornton’s beatdown of Brooks Orpik.
- Should fans boo or cheer Doc Rivers? (Can’t say that I’m upset that I missed this variation on the topic.)
I suppose there are those who enjoy these types of “debates” but none more than the hosts, who can just roll the topic out there and give the airtime to the loonies who call sports talk radio.
The Patriots now have the opportunity to control their own playoff destiny. Thanks to the San Diego upset of the Broncos last night, if the Patriots win their remaining three games, they will be the number one seed in the AFC.
They’ll have a challenge in Miami this Sunday, as the Dolphins appear to be trying to make this a statement game for themselves.
