|Quick hit thoughts on a Thursday||10.23.08 at 8:56 am ET|
Most of these Barack Obama bashers in the media have gone way over the top – including my friend Gerry Callahan. They don’t like John McCain but have been feeding off this hatred of Barack Obama for so long now they will latch onto anything and make it a huge issue. Fortunately for them, when Obama is elected in 12 days they will find out that he is a decent man with good morals, a clear vision and a plan. We will all be better after 8 years of Obama . Then again, after 8 years of the single worst leader in the history of America, anyone would be an improvement.
The NFL is great, but it can’t match the week in week out drama that College Football provides. Another amazing lineup this weekend consists of BC at North Carolina, Georgia at LSU, Kansas hosting Texas Tech and the big one – Penn State heading to face the fighting Michael Holley’s in Columbus.
If Al Davis would ever hire someone who knows what he is doing the Raiders could be a playoff team. That team has talent- JaMarcus Russell is improving and Darren McFadden is really special. The defense is opportunistic (tied for 6th in the NFL in take-a-ways with a +2) and they have a great kicker. In the words of Jr. Seau – “all they need is a chance!”
Most under rated bar in the Brighton/Boston area – Devlins in Brighton Center. Good food, cool music and a great crowd every night. I was there Tuesday and it was packed. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.
I’m looking for new restaurants to try in the Brookline/Boston/Cambridge/Somerville area – if you have found a new spot that you think more people should know about – drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org. Just no seafood – like my good friend Jordan G always says, “If it’s from the sea, it’s not for me.”
|Ray from NH…||10.21.08 at 12:07 pm ET|
So we have Matt Ryan on today. Gerry asks him a tongue in cheek question about dog fights. Matt takes it in stride, he knows Gerry is just messing around. So during Matt Cassels interview, Ray from NH calls in to complain about that comment to Iggy and myself. After 3 or 4 calls I say, lets put him up on the screen. I talk to Ray and tell him I’ll put him on if he keeps it clean!
Here is that Crazy Call from Ray!
I can guarantee that our guy Pete Gustin will have something on this tomorrow!
|A Couple predictions…and if you read last week, go the other way!||10.17.08 at 12:16 pm ET|
I have to agree with Iggy…there is no game 7. Tampa will rise to the occasion. They will be energized with their home crowd. Also, maybe it is just me, but I think the Sox are old, not age wise, just a lot of baseball for a handful of key players (see Papi, Tek, Youk!). It is the same way I feel about the Pats, they are just worn down. So what this means is the sox will win in 7.
Matty “Ice” Ryan will make an appearance, this is a lock (if you believe Meter) and here is the prediction. This interview will have a familiar ring to it! It will sound like Dale and Holley with Tito, The Big show with BB, or D and C with Brady. No tough questions, just a lot of butt smoochin’! And one question he will ask Matt, “hey Matt, can I be your Turtle?” (Entourage reference!)
Bruins beat Ottawa!
Another game I won’t be able to watch much of due to my BC commitments. I feel that if the B’s can get going, defensively out of the gate, they should be able to help out, Tim or Manny between the pipes. The way Marc Savard is dropping points, 6 in 3 games, he nets his first hat trick of the season vs. the Senators!
Madonna and Arod…This is as nasty as it gets, she isn’t even a cougar. More will come out this weekend that Arod is touring with her and kanoodling. Fetching her water and green tea! Can’t hit in the playoffs and can’t hit on a girl in their 20′s! Just remember back to her book SEX. Nasty!
Finally, BC will beat a tough VA tech tea, 17-10, Crane will throw for a TD and run for another. Special teams will come up big for the Eagles! Check out the broadcast on WEEI this weekend! I am gonna try to remember my camera so I can get a picture of Meter fainting in the presence of Matt Ryan!
|5 Predictions for the Weekend||10.17.08 at 8:38 am ET|
There is no Game 7. Tito was brilliant in bringing Papelbon into the 7th inning Thursday night – it energized the crowd and energized the offense – ultimately leading to one of the greatest comebacks in post season history. That being said, starting Josh Beckett over Jon Lesteris a terrible move, one that will prevent the Sox from advancing to the World Series for the 3rd time since 2004.
For the second Sunday in a row, College Football will have a new number 1 ranked team. Texas is coming off a huge win vs. Oklahoma and Missouri is coming off a terrible loss. And following the trend this season, Chase Daniel will get back on the Heisman train as he puts his team on his back and beats Texas in Austin.
Barack Obama widens the gap. According to the Polls John McCain has made a nice little run, but there is still a lot of time left before Election Day and like the NBA, “everyone makes a run.” All the negative adds the GOP is running and the smear campaign they continue to use will eventually come back to bite them in the ass. Obama is a good man with good morals – it’s the heartless, cold, uninformed, mindless dopes like Howie Carr and Bill O’Reilly, both who take their talking points from the GOP – that continue to trash him because that’s what they are told to do.
Both NY Football teams are upset. The J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets are ripe for a losing streak and believe it or not, the Raiders were playing much better before Lane Kiffin was axed. They have a good defense and if Darren McFadden is healthy they should be able to run the ball all over the Jets. The GGGGG-Men were playing at a level way above their heads the first quarter of the season. Look for them to come back down to earth and Eli Manning will turn back into Eli Manning as they are upset by the 49ers in Giant Stadium.
Once again, Saturday Night Live dominates the talk Sunday and Monday. Sarah Palin is scheduled to make an appearance along side Tina Fey. This has a chance to help the GOP tremendously.
