Pete Sheppard was back for round two as the guest host on Thursday and proved himself worthy of being a permanent host. He can run a Sporty McKenzian show with the energy of a ticking time bomb. He’s even friends with Lou Sorgi and Sorgi’s a great guy. And Pete is not afraid to say diddly poo. I never thought I’d say this, but he made me not miss Tanguay.
The big question of the day was who will back up Jacoby Brissett at quarterback tonight? Sheppard thinks it should be Edelman, Gerry thinks that’s insane and Kirk thinks it would be arrogant of Bill Belichick to do that.
Are Brady’s days numbered? The guys discussed John Tomase’s column in which he suggests Brady’s age will catch up with him and Garoppolo will take over as the starting quarterback sooner rather than later.
And the Red Sox are hot:
Finally and at last, Bart Hubbuch has limped back to Twitter after what seemed like his demise 24 hours ago.
This latest twist might be the last. Kirk ceremoniously and emotionally apologized to Bart on behalf of himself and the city of Boston for making Bart’s life miserable and subjecting him to abuse no human being should have to endure. Twitter “should be a buffet of comfort.” If you didn’t tear up a little listening to that, you’re a monster.
Here is Hubbuch’s pinned tweet after showing up on Twitter again:
Seriously, what a loser.
Gerry Callahan once donated his old jock strap to Goodwill.
Line of the day: Kirk: “Do you think Dave O’Brien could make riots boring if he was doing the play-by-play for it?” Tied with Pete: “My nipples are now hard.”
Call of the day: Albert from R.I.: “If the Patriots lose tonight, I will never call the station again.” I don’t even want to think about that.
Producer contribution of the day: Ken Laird: “One guy tweeted at me that I do a great job with the trending.”
