    Still better than Rick Reilly.

    2. Speaking of fantasy, how do you people who play it remotely handle rooting against your favorite teams for even a nanosecond? Seems untenable.
    I loathe fantasy football. I hate it. I would've become a cutter if I had Ronnie Brown on "my" team. I refuse to play. Since I'm not in the NFL, rooting for the Patriots is my "fantasy" football.

    3. I'm psyched for Lost to start again.
    Replace Lost with The Office. I DVRed it.

    4. Madmen rocks. Best show on non-premum cable ever.
    Don't know what that means.

    5. Even though I hate the Colts, the Colts regulars on here are pretty good, even when they write stupid things.
    I like them, too. It makes me feel all like the Crying Game.

    6. Damn, I miss the Bruins being relevant.
    World Champion Red Wings!!! w00t!!

    7. Brady getting injured in the first quarter of the first game after the Abomination...just not right. Really bad.
    Repressed memory.

    8. Willie McGinest should have never left.
    Willie for Heisman.

    9. Damon's comment that we don't know what we lost -- after the Sox won a WS without him -- is truly mind blowing.
    Eff the MFYs.

    10. Very few things beat good sex.
    World championships and football in the snow are two of them.

    11. I'm one of the few people I know who loves dogs and cats equally.
    I have 2 dogs and 3 cats.

    12. There is no better beer than Harpoon. There's really no beer that's even close.
    Pabst Blue Ribbon, son. Pabst Blue Ribbon.

    13. I'd be embarassed to order a latte.
    The Starbucks logo is my mistress, but lattes are for pusssies.

    14. Seriously, is Troy Brown, today, right now, really not better than any WR on the Pats after Moss, Welker and Gaffney? If we had one game to beat the Russians for world domination, wouldn't we beg him to come out of retirement and slot in at the 4 reciver slot?
    We would beat the Russians 77-0 in football. Unless we were playing for vodka, in which case, Russia -17.

    15. I'm simply amazed that people will vote for Obama. Sarah Palin nailed him but good during her speech.
    I hate Obama with the power of 1,000 suns.

    16. I have never strayed, I will never stray and I think cheating on the spouse sucks. People make mistakes, we're all human, I judge none of you who have done it or who are doing it now. But I do think it sucks. That said, if Sarah called me and invited to dinner...tough one.
    +1, strike "Sarah" and replace with "Scarlett."

    17. Patriots Planet is a damn good place.
    Fact.

    18. Matt Cassel...man do I hope I'm wrong about him.
    Matt Cassel is the 2nd best QB in the NFL.

    19. The WHA really phucked the Bruins. They were poised for a wicked dynasty in the early 70s.
    The Red Wings sucked until Steve Yzerman came.

    20. And Ken Dryden can't suffer enough.
    Strike, replace with Claude Lemieux.

    21. I know you people think I'm a lunatic, but things like Yankee players getting badly hurt duirng games spark not one pang of empathy or sympathy from me. Not even a little, teeny, tiny bit.
    Fact. Add "Colt, Avalanche, Buckeye, Tomlinpuss and Spur" to that list.

    22. Have there ever been better sports executives in Boston than Ainge, Epstein and Pioli/BB? Chiarelli, you are not included in that list.
    No.

    23. When did great TV totally pass movies as the best form of non-sports entertainment?
    When movies started making movies about movies that already happened.

    24. I love tits, I love women, I love pussey....I don't get strip bars at all. You didn't earn it, fellas.
    Strip clubs are stupid. Get a real bitch to come over and give the live show (assuming you aren't too scared to talk to her.) Also, backwoods strip clubs are OK for the unintentional comedy.

    25. Damn, I'm pissed that I missed the Beatles live.
    Music. Meh.

    26. Random lists are awesome.

    I've been thinking lately that somebody in sports medicine needs to design a super lightweight type of brace that an athlete could wear on their leg/knee which would almost eliminate the chance of a knee bending backward or sideways, getting rid of ACL/MCL injuries. It would allow almost full mobility (of course it couldn't give 100%), but coiuld be worn by players like QB's.

    I'm sure this is a dumb idea for many reasons, but I just don't know why...
    P??k?

    Just a thought - to immobilize the knee you would put stress on the bones of the leg with the brace possibly breaking the bone


    which is more severe an injury

    USC has their QBs wear braces on the plant leg.

    ?That just goes to show you how emotional I am about playing here, being here, and understanding what it means to be a Patriot,? Faulk said. ?I was talking with David Patten this morning, and we were talking about other guys who left the organization . . . and speaking with those guys, they always say, ?Kev, it?s not greener on the other side of the fence.? Listening to those guys, I know I?m in a great situation, I?ve been here, I know what?s going on. That?s why I?m here.?

    That is foolish.

    He just orchestrated all the necessary moves to hang #17 didn't he?

    With a good chance to do it again.

    What more are you looking for?
    The present situation is untenable, unacceptable, unjustifiable. It?s unhealthy and unsustainable. Not dying is not living.

    I dunno...in between flinging his own poo, there's a good chance a monkey could fleece Kevin McHale in a trade...

    Kevin McHale did that.

    I'm sorry, Danny Ainge is one of my favorite players. I cried for a week when he was traded. But please, what the hell did he do the last decade? Sebastian Telfair anyone? Yeah, that was brilliant. Chauncey? Joe Johnson?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm happy as hell that we got #17 but I sat back as this team was rebuilt, and rebuilt and rebuilt. I'll give Danny some credit for this year, but make no mistake, this was more Kevin giving some more love back to Boston.

    And Ray Allen. Where exactly did Kevin fit into that little nugget? Which prompted KG to rethink his stand on Boston. I don't think you're really seeing it as clear as you think you are.

    Nah. Ray Ray. Posey. House. The prior picks that resulted in players that were attractive to McHale and Seattle.

    And getting guys like Rajon and Perk. Keeping Pierce.

    The Celts are set up to be serious contenders for the next 2-3 years.

    Give Ainge his props or show us your pair. It's one or the other, sister.

    And MD, I liked your responses....but PBR? Isn't that just another generic form of Bud like piss? I mean, there's a time and a place for generic beer. But let's not pretend it's anywhere near Harpoon.
    Ainge turned chicken shit into chicken almondine overnight.

    Danny hasn't been here for a decade and Chauncy was Rick Pitino's deal.

    Pitino is a flaming piece of crap, I do not acknowledge his disgusting existence here.

    Guys, I understand that Danny has done some good things, I just think it was a perfect storm and he got lucky. DS...you really going to praise him for getting Posey while he just let him walk when it is CLEAR how very much he is needed. Really?

    I love this team and am stoked for the next couple seasons but I'm not putting Ainge or Doc into GM/Coach Boston lore yet.

    -My feet hurt

    -Is there a better season than fall in the northern half of the US, other than winter in Hawaii?

    -Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego now?

    -And why is it that U2 STILL hasn't found what they're looking for more than 20 years later? Ever think of stopping and asking for directions?

    Even BB has had some shitty drafts TG. Look at Chad Jackson. All of last year's(except MAYBE Merriweather). None of them will bat 1.000.

    We can agree to disagree on this one. We'll see in a few years if Danny keeps it going.
