Mikey Adams and Lenny Megliola discuss the state of the Red Sox after a 13-8 loss to the Yankees. Pablo Sandoval and other notable fat ballplayers are discussed, in addition to some of the positives with the team
We discuss Bob McNair's now infamous quotes about the Patriots, and how his comments, uniformed as they may be, are probably representative of other NFL owners, and thus the reason Roger Goodell can push forward with this situation without worrying about blowback from the owners.

[0:10:06] ... a calling it the BBC outfield that's fine Miami now works for Bill Bradley bets and cast the other two high browser half an hour program across the street and but it still deviate throughout the way they're aligning it today is the way I wanna see the regular alignment day in and day out next season. What they're doing is preparing for next season if Hanley Ramirez is on this team and I think Dave Dombrowski will desperately trying to unload in this offseason. But a piece here is going to be first baseman is going to be a platoon first baseman. And maybe if you've got Christian Vasquez and Blake's why art on this team. Find out one of them to play first base on the days they're not catching the way they are approaching this thing seems so intelligent to me. And welcome to give Dombrowski to credit until I nova. Oh and and he deserves it because. Bench Eric that was asked that at a press conference do you have any plans to move Hanley Ramirez the first to try him out he said unequivocally no.

So what do you mitigating and talking about that price tag. It's still somebody. On Hanley Ramirez what do you say paid them yourself OK. You owe me. You know you got got the best of me five years ago we made another trade so once you. What do you say did you start off by saying. You can have Hanley Ramirez how much of his contractor I have to eat. Night somewhere there's a price there's a dollar figure and it might be ...






This could be the most brilliant piece of editing in the history of YouTube. Because I’ve seen every second of “Game of Thrones” and I can’t ever remember a moment where I wasn’t fantasizing about smashing in Joffrey’s face with a shovel or hoping another character would stick a lance through his heart. The closest we ever got was Tyrion slapping him across his sniveling rat face and of course his (spoiler alert) gagging on his wine with the dying words, “This pie is dry!” oozing out of his miserable mouth. So like I said, this clip should win the Internet award for editing because they almost make the little punk seem human.

In case you’ve missed this story over the last few days, U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Jarrod Haschert made a bit of a sensation when he went of Facebook to invite Ronda Rousey to the Marine Corps Ball. Then the fine Americans over at “TMZ on TV” tracked down Rousey and showed her the video. Well, as the video above shows, she accepted. And Haschert’s reaction is predictably spectacular.

By way of full disclosure, this story resonates with me especially for two reasons. First, because, in case you haven’t heard me mention it before, I have a son who went off to Marines boot camp a year ago today. So I can tell you second hand those guys make sacrifices few of us ever do. Besides the hard work and sleep deprivation there are things like going 13 weeks with no communication from loved ones other than snail mail while their buddies are off at college getting drunk with coeds and bringing their laundry home on weekends. There’s sleeping in some foxhole in a North Carolina torrential downpour. Getting dumped into a pool inside a helicopter crash simulator and spun upside down. And there’s the countless hours of untold boredom on fire watch or whatnot. So I can appreciate how much this means to Lance Corporal Haschert.

And also because I have a semi-odd fixation on really attractive women who can kick your ass. From Ripley in “Alien” to “Xena Warrior Princess” to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” to Michonne from “The Walking Dead” and beyond. I don’t know what it is. Maybe I admire strong females or I just need more discipline in my life, I don’t know. But Ronda Rousey is heart chakra.

So kudos to her. I can’t think of a better way to honor the people who keep us all free to write goofy blogs where we creepily lust after Ronda Rousey than for her to actually go on a date with this American hero. So on behalf of a grateful nation, I’d like to thank Ronda and congratulate the Lance Corporal. ‘Rah, Devil Dog. I have no doubt you’ll be able to line up dates for her friends.

P.S. I love some of the work TMZ does, but someone needs to tell the writers that Marines only want to be called “Marines,” not “soldiers.”
