Editor’s note: Not much could keep Jerry Thornton from the WEEI airwaves, but the Dale & Holley third wheel was forced to miss Friday’s show due to surgery on a torn meniscus in his knee. Before being wheeled off to the operating room, Thornton offered a few thoughts on what he hopes life will be like “on the other side.” Hint: #ExonerateBrady.

Lou, Christian and Tim discuss last night's walk-off loss to the Astros and try to figure out what moves the Red Sox need to do going forward.

This is the full version of the clip they played on MFB Thursday. I laughed my puny pale Irish ass off hearing their shortened, edited, FCC-approved version, the real thing is magnificent. This is a masterwork of angry, mouth-frothing, righteous rage from a sincere lover of movies fed up to the breaking point with having to endure another mindless, lazy, perfunctory piece of garbage out of Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison productions.

Seriously, there are so many gems here I don’t even know where to begin. “Cultural vandalism.” “The vomit-encrusted nadir of the unholy assembly line” whatever. “Room temperature yak p*ss.” “‘Pixels is enough to make you hate the things you love.” Brilliant. All I could do for 10 minutes was sit back and admire anyone who can get that furious and express it to such perfection. And strive to emulate MovieBob in some way because he might be my new role model.

So thanks, MovieBob. If I could, as one movie fan to another, I’d induct you into the Order of the Golden Chainsaw. Because that was brilliant.

Former Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker is a free agent and has said he wishes to play this season. One legendary former teammate hopes Welker does not land on a team’s roster.

Retired cornerback Champ Bailey told Fox Sports that he fears for Welker due to the receiver’s history with concussions.

“I don’t want Wes to play for my own personal reasons. I’ve seen him get concussions. It scares me,” Bailey said.

Bailey stated that he believes Welker, an 11-year veteran, could still perform well for an NFL team, but that does not mean that he should.

“I think he can still play, but I don’t want him to play because of these concussions. This thing is no joke. It’s a serious thing when you start talking about your head. And for him to have to worry about that at a young age that he is now, he has to think about that for years to come and I just hope he hangs it up,” Bailey said.

Welker played for the Patriots from 2007 to 2012 before signing with the Broncos and playing with Peyton Manning for the past two years. He played in Super Bowl XLVI when the Patriots lost to the Giants and in Super Bowl XLVIII, in which the Broncos got trounced by the Seahawks.

Bailey indicated that he understands Welker’s motivation to come back in order to try to finally win a championship.

“I understand why he has that desire to play, he wants the ring,” Bailey said. “He still has that hunger, I just don’t want to see it.”

If you know me, you know there are few things in life that bring me as much joy as a really well-made mashup. And this is among the best I’ve seen in a while. I mean, it almost couldn’t go wrong, combining the Patriots with a superhero movie, which are few of my favorite things. But the whole Tom Brady-as-Superman idea, two men being persecuted by an ungrateful world while they fight for truth, justice and the American way, is perfect. Granted, I could argue that Brady has more of Batman’s swagger and general coolness, but I won’t quibble.

Once again, Patriots fans continue to own the Internet.

WrestlingInc.comIn a developing situation, it appears as if WWE Hall of Famer and current Tough Enough judge Hulk Hogan has parted way with the company. The reason stems from rumors of a tape existing featuring Hogan allegedly going on a racial tirade.

Hulk Hogan‘s profile has been removed from the Alumni section of WWE’s website, all of his merchandise has been removed from WWEShop.com, and Hogan has been removed from the cast listing on Tough Enough’s website. Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer noted that the WWE Website was told to remove all references to him. …

Update: While it’s unclear if this is the audio in question, here’s an interview of Hogan using some racial terms rather liberally, including him talking about the infamous promo Booker T cut on him:

Is it possible for me to believe in anything anymore? My government has let me down. My church. Every social and cultural institution in my life has been discredited in one way or another. And now we find out the most popular and well-known person in WWE history went off on an insane, profane, racist rant three years ago. Hulk Hogan, of all people, has been turned into a wrestling version of an Orwellian UnPerson (relevant parts begin at about 2:30 into the video then get much, much worse). Is there no end to the disillusionment?

I’d never defend anyone being racist, obviously. And something else might come out that will make more sense of this. For now, I still find it hard to believe that after decades in the public eye that Hulk Hogan carry hatred toward his fellow man. This is the hero who’s been a positive role model for young people. Who’s inspired generations of kids to say their prayers, respect their parents and eat their vegetables. He’s met with world leaders. The giants of the entertainment industry. Iconic athletes. Hell, he made a superstar out of non-descript Patriots backup tight end Mathew Mulligan:

It’s hard to reconcile how any man that gracious and magnanimous, who’s been a symbol for everything that is good about ‘Merica for almost 30 years, would have malice in his heart. But his words are his words. Hopefully we’ll find this is all a big misunderstanding. Or in a perfect world, the Hulkster is bringing back the N.W.O. Because as sad as that would be, it’s better than living in a world where he’s a racist. I’ve been disappointed enough for one lifetime.
