How lazy is a Boston Globe sports columnist when they send you out to Buffalo, supposedly to cover yesterday's Patriors / Bills game, you devote your Sunday column to saying next to nothing about the game, then on the day after the game you explicitly say nothing about the game by not even writing a column about said game?

Did Shank close the Anchor Bar again, either / both nights?

A rhetorical question - do you mail in a column when you don't even bother to write one? This editor says YES!

Even better, he's written essentially the same column four times in the past two weeks, each a dull rehash of the end of the 2011 baseball season.

And he's done it even when the topic was supposed to be the Patriots.

And chances are Shank thinks the first 35 minutes when the Bills raced to a 21-7 lead constituted the whole game - the 45-7 Patriots scoring binge from then on apparently doesn't register with Shank any more than blowing out the Broncos after trailing 16-7 registered with him last year.
