As much as George Steinbrenner was the man I loved to hate from my formative years all the way deep into my adult life, I have to admit I admired the guy. Sure, you can argue that the owner of a professional sports franchise flipping the State Bird of Massachusetts to an opponent is childish and immature. But I’ll argue back that sometimes maturity can be way overrated, especially when it comes to a great sports rivalry. I’d rather have an owner who cares enough to act like a child because he really, truly and honestly hates the other team than some disaffected, corporate empty suit who just sees owning a team as a tax dodge or something.

I mean, giving the finger to another team is some real old-school way of operating. The stuff that you just know the guys who used to drink scotch, eat prime rib and smoke cigars for lunch used to do. Legends like Al Davis, Paul Brown and Branch Rickey would have done. Believe me, I’m not suggesting I want Mr. Kraft flipping people off, Wyc Grousbeck giving opponents the crotch grab or John Henry mooning team buses or anything like that. Just that I can appreciate the sentiment.

So while I hated The Boss and the 2003 New York Yankees with the white-hot intensity of a thousand pizza ovens, with the passage of time I have to concede that I would have loved to have him as the general leading the troops into battle and root for a team he owned.

Lou, Christian and Danny Picard discuss the news that NESN Red Sox play-by-play man Don Orsillo would not be coming back next season. WEEI play-by-play man, Dave O'Brien, is reportedly taking his spot.

Right off the top I want to say I’m a huge Nick Saban guy. I like his style. I appreciate that he’s open to talking about his coaching methods and the Internet geek X’s and O’s football sites are filled with information he dispenses openly at coaches clinics and so on. Not to mention he probably is the most successful fruit to ever grow on the Bill Belichick coaching tree.

But now that I get a taste of how Dolphins fans like Daniel Tosh hate him? Now that I realize he is their bogeyman? The monster in their closet who haunts their dreams the way The Hooded One is to Jets fans? Well, now I love the man.

That said, I’m also a Tosh.0 fan and I have to admit this segment is pretty damned hilarious. “This is poor people food!” is priceless.
