I haven’t the first clue what precipitated this bench-clearing brawl between these bulldozers in China. Nor do I care. I just know I’ve waited my whole life to see it happen. I swear I had this exact same with my Tonka trucks in the backyard sandbox at least a thousand times. And now that I’ve witnessed the real deal, I need it all the time. By all means, somebody with the money to spend needs to start a National Heavy Equipment Fight League. Like a combination of BattleBots and Transformers. I swear I’d buy season tickets.

I can’t ever recall seeing a guy so utterly emasculated the way this San Francisco Giants fan is in this clip. It’s one thing to do something stupid in the heat of the moment. Getting kicked out of your front row seats is punishment enough. Lesson learned and you move on.

But there is no surviving his girlfriend’s reaction. Which is totally the right one, by the way. I can’t stress that enough. She has every right to be mortified by his stupidity. I’m just saying that there is no coming back from this, for him or their relationship. When your honey understands the rules of baseball better and can tell the difference between a fair- and foul ball better than you, you cannot live that down.

My Life Coach advice to this kid is that, in the unlikely event she sticks by him after this humiliation, he has to dump her. For his sake and hers, he has got to let them both move on and forget they ever knew each other because this pain will be there between them for as long as they’re together. Also moving, wearing a disguise and changing his identity is not a bad idea, either. He’ll thank me down the road.

john Farrell had a bad weekend -- especially when it came to pinch hitting. Glenn, Lou and Christian rip the Sox manager for his bad choices.
After the Celtics/Hawks Game 1, Tommy Heinsohn says he doesn't think Al Horford is a great player, and the rest of the guys on the panel make fun of him. Glenn, Lou and Christian joke about this and talk about how the Celtics will do in Game 2.
Rex Ryan introduced Donald Trump before his Buffalo rally, and Donald Trump told the crowd that he was proud of the two championships Rex Ryan won. Of course, Trump is wrong and Ryan never won a championship.
With the possibility of Avery Bradley missing the rest of the series, Glenn, Lou and Christian debate whether or not the Celtics have enough left to beat the Hawks.
Bill Belichick finally got on social media! Well, he used his wife's Instagram to give a shout out to fans and to Doug Flutie. Also, Christian talks about taking his kids to Lexington early on Patriots Day.
With news of Pablo Sandoval being "too sore" to get evaluated and Avery Bradley sustaining a hamstring injury, the guys talk to Dr. Gill to try to get the scoop on these injuries. Dr. Gill poses some concern over Pablo Sandoval and the guys continue to discuss what to do with Sandoval.

 

Daily MailMiami’s pristine beaches have been left strewn with trash after a free beach festival descended into chaos last weekend.

Thousands from all over Florida descended on Miami Beach on Saturday to relax, float and party at the biannual event.

But Miami officials and environmental groups were enraged after festival goers left behind a trashed beach covered in hundreds of discarded inflatables, bottles and plastic.

While attendees complained about widespread drug use, drug dealing and ‘idiots’ bringing knives and smashing bottles. …

Mayor Philip Levine and Commissioner Michael Grieco has now vowed to ban future Floatopias to protect the local environment.

In a furious Facebook rant, Levine warned that “the disruption to our beaches, residents and visitors caused by Floatopia will NOT be tolerated.” …

He went on to say that Floatopia Miami had rapidly grown since it was founded in 2012 and was now “simply too large and disruptive” and “has a very adverse impact on our quality of life, public safety and natural resources.”

Mayor Levine and Commissioner Grieco can spare us the “This is why we can’t have nice things” act. They knew exactly what they were getting into when they signed off on Floatopia in the first place.

Chaos and rioting has a tradition at Floatopia since the very beginning, way back in 2012. It comes with the territory. You can’t put thousands of Miami Beach bods together, put them in bathing suits and let them casually bob on inflatables and not expect them to run wild. It’s human nature. Simple biochemistry. All that testosterone, estrogen, pheromones, salt water mixed with drugs and booze? You might as well just get everyone high on amyl nitrate and declare The Purge has begun. It’s a recipe for destruction, mayhem and litterbugging. So they brought this on themselves.

I guess my only question is, where does a guy in a bathing suit even carry a knife? But regardless, Green Harbor Beach in Marshfield never sounded so good.
