I'm yawning a lot this morning and it's not due to lack of sleep.
If this is Thursday, this must be Dan's rundown of the players in the Super Bowl who have local connections. Did you know, for example, that Matt Hasselbeck played at Xaverian High School and Boston College and Isaiah Kacyvenski played at Harvard and "regularly dined at the Stockyard in Brighton"? Or that Lofa Tatupu played for King Philip Regional in the Hockomock League? Did you know there even is a Hockomock League?
Then he tells us that Dan Rooney is "the most beloved and respected owner in the NFL." Guess we missed that poll.
And since it's Black History Month, Shaughnessy adds that "the rule that requires organizations to interview minority candidates to fill head coaching positions is known as the Rooney Rule." Which is ironic, seeing as how Rooney has never interviewed a black for a head coaching position, something that somehow escapes The CHB's penetrating expose.
And what, praytell, does "Paul Allen ... can't help that he's a legitimate billionaire" mean?
I guess we can be thankful he's not writing on his daily 1-mile run or how Tom Brady is considering cutting his hair (yet).
Time to get some sleep. Sounds like The CHB needs some, too. That, plus an editor.
