With another week almost in the books, many Boston sports fans look forward to getting the Patriots on the practice field next week.
It seems that all that radio hosts want to talk about it whether he will be here beyond this season, but has it really hit Patriots fans that Darrelle Revis will be playing for the Patriots this season? Darrelle Revis.
Kirk Minihane is not being punished for his remarks about Erin Andrews earlier this week. Nothing has come of the comments of Lou Merloni and Tim Benz on Andrews, which some would say are even worse.
Minihane is getting all the criticism, but I don't think this exchange from the WEEI midday show is any better. pic.twitter.com/PyXcIpbelV

(Thanks to Ken Fang for listening and transcribing that exchange.)
Believe it or not, the exchange sounds even worse than it reads.
Minihane did apologize this week with a statement on the WEEI website, but I hope that when he returns from vacation that he apologizes on the air as well. He said the remarks on the radio, he probably should apologize on the radio as well.
Kirk Minihane too good for low-brow antics – Chad Finn leads off his media column today with more on the Minihane comments, and whether Kirk is too good to resort to this type of stuff. I don’t know that he is. I thought he was a decent guy, but his total ingratiation with the hate that John Dennis and Gerry Callahan spew has been disturbing.
Paul Azinger thinks Tiger Woods fixed what wasn’t broken – The Open Championship is this weekend, and Bill Doyle has the ESPN analyst saying the Woods changed his swing too much and it has pretty much ruined him.
Jim Bouton still as opinionated as ever – If you read Ball Four growing up, you might be interested to hear what the former Seattle Pilot is up to these days. Stan Grossfeld checked in with Bouton, who resides in Massachusetts.
