The Boston Globe continued its series of attacks on blogging, Twitter and the internet by old-school media dinosaurs with the publication of today's column by Dan Shaughnessy. You've probably heard by now that Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel was injured on Sunday and some Kansas City fans actually cheered when he was taken off the field. … Continue reading Shaughnessy — “Get Off My Lawn, Bloggers”
Bob Ryan's farewell (sort of) column in the Globe yesterday was typical Ryan - passionate, with a nod to history, underscored by humility about his own role in things. The Globe has lost perhaps the final piece to its glory days, and a bridge to even earlier eras. We'll continue to read Ryan on many … Continue reading Bob Ryan’s Farewell, CSNNE’s 5000th and More…
Glad to see the fearless sports editor of the Boston Globe is back in full Patriots finger-wagging mode. https://twitter.com/Globesullivan/status/232496164396736512 Right, because making rookies go down a slip-n-slide - in full public view of media and coaches - is the same as the sexual assaults and beatings that have been uncovered among high schools. If anything, … Continue reading Globe Editor Finger-Wags Patriots. Again.
Did anyone else laugh out loud at these lines from Nick Cafardo on the Kevin Youkilis/Will Middlebrooks situation: Sunday: It should be Valentine’s decision as to whether Youkilis gets his job back, and nobody else’s. Today: The Drew Bledsoe-Tom Brady analogy is somewhat pertinent in this case. Bill Belichick had just about reached the end … Continue reading Just Curious…
It wasn't exactly breaking news, but when Bob Ryan told Bill Simmons yesterday on the B.S. Report that he will be hanging it up after the 2012 Olympic games in London, it caused quite a stir. Ryan had hinted previously that he'd likely be scaling things back following the Olympics, and he emphasized yesterday that … Continue reading Bob Ryan Bowing Out, Bruins Blanked
Since the Bill Belichick era began, coverage from the Boston Globe has been pretty consistent. With the exception of Mike Reiss and Greg Bedard, (who I've disagreed with a couple of time, but overall I think is excellent, and very objective in his coverage.) the coverage of the Patriots coming out of Morrissey Blvd has been routinely … Continue reading Joe Sullivan Shows Who He Really Is
This column originally appeared in the November 25th, 2009 issue of Patriots Football Weekly. Visser no stranger to Pats success By Bruce Allen "Hi, I'm Lesley Visser, I know Will McDonough." With those eight words, Lesley Visser, the longtime CBS sportscaster voted this past summer as the No. 1 Female Sportscaster of All-Time, would approach … Continue reading From The PFW Archives – An Interview With Lesley Visser
I think we all expected that a tell-all about the 2011 Red Sox was coming, and I think we suspected that the Boston Globe - with their ties to Red Sox ownership - would be the outlet to provide it. That article came today. Inside the collapse - By Bob Hohler. The article is being … Continue reading Losers All Around In Globe Article
This seems to apply to Shalise Manza Young in the Globe, who I usually like. She tweeted the following last night after Andre Carter announced that he was coming to the Patriots. [blackbirdpie id="100379713192722432"] This snarky comment just seems to indicate that Young either wasn't listening when Bill Belichick expanded on his media fabrication comments, or she … Continue reading Not. Getting. It.
Today's guest column is from Mike Passanisi. It took an editorial by a respected journalist to get the city to recognize the Celtics' incredible accomplishment. On May 6, 1969, the team, a collection of aging stars with a few new additions like Bailey Howell and Emmette Bryant, shocked the hoop world by winning their 11th title … Continue reading Guest Column: A Tale of Two Titles
