Picking Up Sides Has Never Been So Difficult

So, who are you pulling for?

Dan Shaughnessy in all his laziness?

Or the new, Curt Schilling-infused WEEI?

I cannot root for either, unfortunately.

better get used to Schilling, it's obvious that his 2nd career is going to be, PROFESSIONAL MEDIA BLOWHARD........gee, we need more of those around here (rolling eyes now).....oh well, I do like the fact he hates Shank

Anyone think that Shank's next article will be about the Celtics getting back on track (back-to-back road wins, etc.)?

Yeah, me neither...

WEEI has confused luck with skill. They basically went on air around the time the Pats won their first SB. Then came the great '04 Sox season. Then more Super Bowls, another World Series, Celts last year. WEEI's ratings are a direct reflection of this. It will be interesting to see what happens if and, unfortunately, when all the major teams have lackluster seasons, all at the same time. Ordway, Wolfe and crew are arrogant fucks. We'll see what happens to their swagger when their ratings books are down several points.

Correction: Entercom bought EEI in 1998.

WEEI has been all sports for over fifteen years.

I haven't read it, but apparently Shank sticks up for Varitek. Ugh.

I would rather a sports blowhard who actually was an athlete than one who just went to high school, goofed off for nine or ten years, and then decided to become one.

yeah, but you know what happens?....even former athletes eventually morph into run of the mill media blowhards....just look at the cast of former athletes on ESPN, they spew the same crap as your Shank's Felger's and Tomase's of the world.

I agree, if your going to become a "full fledged media member" you have to go along to get along....won't be long before Schilling starts doing the same stuff he chewed out Butch Stearns for doing....only a matter of time

Schilling easily. He actually puts in real research and brings some actual insight. Don't compare Schilling to Shank - Shank is the blowhard.

Anyone see the clear correlation between the plummeting fortunes of the NYT/Boston Globe and the increased scarcity of OB on this blog?
