Spiked Spokes

Bruins fans, take heart: With his second column on the Bruins in the can, The CHB has hit his annual quota and you won't have to worry about his ugly mug appearing anywhere near your beloved B's again this year.

I have to say, you'll surely miss him. Where else could you get his special hockey expertise, gleaned from 30-plus years of baseball watching? Where else could you get his wisdom of knowing just whom the B's should hire as GM, and on what terms? Where else could you see his "Make me look just like Ronald McDonald" perm?

Truly a loss for both sides.

What's more flatulent and pathetic: Bruins management or the CHB?

CHB comes back from vacation to write about two things nobody cares about: Barry Bonds and the Bruins.

RE: Barry. I think Joe Sullivan had to get a laugh out of this line: "Baseball writers making judgments about a ballplayer's character? Pretty absurd, no? It's never been a comfortable place for this 30-year member of the association." Who didnt laugh to the point of dehydration when reading that?

RE: The Bruins. Sullivan must have felt that his talented hockey staff cant cover a press conference without CHB's "perspective" on things. I cant figure what the motivation behind assigning CHB to write a hockey column nor the motivation behind what he ended up writing would be. The column was weak even by CHB standards. I'm sure Nancy and Dupes are smart enough to recognize that.

Stay on vacation, CHB! You wasted no time lowering the bar.

Nice job, blogger. You had nothing to say and you said it anyway.

"You had nothing to say and you said it anyway."

If that's your feeling, be thankful he says it on a blog, and not on valuable real estate in one of the country's ostensibly-first-rate newspapers.

Just curious as to what CHB stands for?

CHB = Curly Haired Boyfriend

Gordon Edes once approached Carl Everett and Carl told Gordon that he doesn't speak to Globe reporters and that meant, in his words, "you and your curly haired boyfriend". WEEI repeatedly played the tape and the name stuck. I'll never understand why Carl gets booed.
