You're Bloody Predictable, Shank

God forbid that Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe hack extraordinaire, be gracious.

As predicted yesterday by Bruce Allen of Boston Sports Media Watch, the CHB used his post as Globe columnist (of sorts) to slam Curt Schilling in the wake of Schilling's retirement announcement.

Shank's March 24th column, with the headline He Was Bloody Good Here, featured few platitudes to the pitcher without whom the Red Sox would still be without a post-1918 World Championship. Instead, he calls Curt "Schill," a "big lug" and an "uber-blowhard."

"I'm going to miss the big lug. In the past 30 years in Boston sports, there haven't been many guys more fun to write about than Curt Schilling. And it's nice to know he's not really going away. The uber-blowhard still will be part of our lives in cyberspace, on the airwaves, and probably at every town meeting and polling place in Suffolk, Middlesex, and Norfolk counties."

Look in the mirror, Dan! Agree or disagree, at least Schilling doesn't sway in the wind with every other paragraph. If there's an uber-blowhard in the room, methinks he might have a big red Afro. And, in my mind, anyway, you should alter your terminology. Change the word "write" to "slander."

You're not only predictable, you're pathetic.

Dan Shaughnessy is a untalented, bitter, angry, myopic piece of shit. The sooner he fucking leaves the paper or our lives, the better. Fuck him. No one, and I mean no one, likes him, thinks he's relevant or mildly interesting. He's a fucking cocksucking scumbag.


Your pal,

I don't agree with much of what Schilling says. I think he's just a tad to the right of Joe Stalin. But, Timmy, you're right. Shank is a broke down dunce.

Schilling may pop off a lot but Shank's a tool.

Do you notice that all of the other reasonably talented Boston Newspaper Sports Hacks have all found better, new, or otherwise more comfortable landing spots? Shaughnessy is cemented for life at The Globe because no one wants him. Those once-in-a-blue-moon TV appearances? Shank pays for them himself! "Please let me go on TV...PLEASE! I need to elevate and improve my stature in the world of sports media. I BEG you!" It is so laughably obvious that Shank is despised across all facets of his world: by fans, by the people he 'supposedly' covers, by his peers.

Dan doesn't have the capacity for self-analysis.
