Red Sox trade prospect Anderson Espinoza for starting left-hander Drew Pomeranz. Glenn, Lou, and Christian break down the trade and what this means for the future of the season.

So this is it? The end of the line? After 18 months, 545 days, hundreds of hours of talk radio and thousands of blogs, the fight is over like this? Tom Brady run the white flag up the pole, hands his sword over to Roger Goodell and lets his army of trolls take control of the fort in a 90-word surrender on Facebook. As T.S. Elliot put it, “This the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but a whimper.”

This news just hit me and there’s a radio show to do, so this is going to have to be a short, knee-jerk blog. And after all this time and effort, it’s going to take a lot to fully process it. But for now, the immediate reaction is one of incomparable disappointment.

Brady was so close. The Supreme Court was a long shot, but within his grasp. This whole ridiculous Deflategate fiasco was so utterly preposterous from the very beginning, it deserved to be decided on the biggest legal stage in the country. Goodell and his circus clowns needed to be exposed before the same judicial body that decided everything from Brown v. the Board of Education to the 2000 presidential election. That’s what Deflategate deserved. Not a total capitulation on a social media account.

Not only Deflategate deserved it, Brady deserved it. The team that has been so utterly ripped off by the same despotic commissioner that said they did nothing wrong deserved it. Patriots fans, who’ve been done so dirty in all this and responded by galvanizing themselves and sticking behind their quarterback deserved it. But instead, we’ll get to watch this injustice stand in the form of an innocent man sitting out the first month like he’d beat his wife unconscious or whipped his child until his skin split open.

Lastly, congratulations to all the lying, thieving weasels who concocted this whole thing. And to their braying lackeys in the media who chose to side with a league that has openly lied to their faces time and time again over a quarterback whose always been classy, accommodating and honorable. You win. I just can’t imagine why that would feel good to you.

And now my watch is ended.

By the old gods and the new, I love Maisie Williams. And don’t for one filthy second think that it’s got anything to do with me thinking she’s hot or anything like that. Please. She’s Ned Stark’s little girl. I’ve watched her grow up from a little tomboy who wanted to shoot arrows and become a warrior princess. I saw her leave The Hound for dead. Learn to serve the Many Faced God. Slit Walder Frey’s throat and watch him die like the pervert he was. Not to mention how great she was on the last season of “Doctor Who.” She’s like a daughter to me.

No, I love Maisie because she is arguably the coolest celebrity of our times. She’s gone to ComicCon in full disguise so she can enjoy it from a fan’s perspective. She’s pranked fans by pretending to be a store clerk. And now, when she found out she’s been nominated for an Emmy, delivered the following hilarious reactions:

  • @GameOfThrones wtf ARYA KIDDING ME?!!— Maisie Williams (@Maisie_Williams)
  • @b_cogman @IAMLenaHeadey Bryan, what the f*** is happening?! I can’t believe it— Maisie Williams (@Maisie_Williams)
  • @MissAlexaJ PASS THE JAFFACAKES S***JUST GOT REAL— Maisie Williams (@Maisie_Williams)

I haven’t the first clue what Jaffacakes are, but if they’re good enough that my girl Maisie wants some at a moment like this, I demand some for my next celebration. But then again, I’d expect nothing less from a celebrity so cool she authored the best bikini selfie in the history of Instagram:

 

I’m Ariel, minus the tail and the t**s. **** “A girl has no t**s”

A video posted by Tim Tebow (@timtebow) on

“I wake up this morning to find out I’m speaking at the Republican National Convention. It’s amazing how fast rumors fly. And that’s exactly what this is: a rumor.”

The heck, Republicans? This is how you kick off a campaign? First you try to get Tom Brady to speak at your convention, then you settle for Tim Tebow, the deliverer of some of the worst passes I’ve ever seen thrown by an adult male. And now even Tebow is standing you up? It would be one thing to get left at the altar by a Pro Bowler. A Super Bowl champion. Say, an Aaron Rodgers or even a Joe Flacco. But to get ditched by the guy who couldn’t earn his way onto the field for the New York Jets? That’s a level of humiliation perhaps never before achieved in American politics.

Seriously, how does this happen? Was that a lineup of confirmed speakers that was leaked the other day or a wish list? Did you get commitments out of anybody, or were you just throwing stuff out there, like some teenager inviting a celebrity to prom and hoping they say yes? Either way, it’s a terrible, terrible look to be turned down by a guy who couldn’t make it out of Patriots training camp. I mean, if you can’t land this guy, how can you expect to run a country? If I’m Donald Trump, I’m finding out who’s responsible for this fiasco and firing more people than on the entire “Celebrity Apprentice” Netflix page.
