All the Red Sox are in camp and working out, so we hear from a lot of the Red Sox front office members like Dave Dombrowski, Tom Werner and others. The guys talk about how Hanley will handle first base.
ESPN has been asking 'what if Cam Newton had a party cruise?' and trying to say we only let Gronk party because he's white. Glenn and Christian to a stop to that nonsense.
Red Sox owner John Henry spoke to the media down at Fort Myers, and said Pablo Sandoval only has a 17% body fat ratio. No one believes Henry, and Lou followed up with the owner to try to get the truth out of him.

RussiaA teenage schoolboy has told how he’s “so happy” and “boiling inside” after winning a month living with a porn star in an online competition.

Fresh-faced Ruslan Schedrin, said to be 16, could spend a month in a hotel with X-rated movie actress, Ekaterina Makarova, also known as Macy Ssens. …

Ruslan says he’s excited by the prospect of spending time in close quarters with Ekaterina, who he describes as having “good sizes.”

But his mum and sister are furious, insisting the prize is inappropriate for a 16-year-old, adding that he should be concentrating on his education.

I’ve got my own two kids to raise, so far be it for me to project my oppressive, Puritanical, Judeo-Christian values on poor fresh-faced Ruslan Schedrin here. But it seems to me this is one of those times when mother (and sister) know best.

Not that the kid needs to focus on his education. For all I know Russian schools are still banging the kids over the head with how evil the decadent West is and how Russia invented everything and landed a man on the moon and so on. No, I’m just saying that a hotel room with a porn star is no place for a 16-year-old. And as a former 16-year-old boy, I know of what I speak. When I was Ruslan’s age, I could barely drive a car, never mind a finely tuned piece of high-performance, precision Russian engineering like Ekaterina “Macy” Makarova. Not on your life. This kid will crash and burn worse than anything you’ll see in even the most horrific driver’s ed fear film.

He’ll be lucky to survive the ordeal. And even if he did, he’d be ruined for all other women forever. To continue to beat the metaphor to death, you can’t get behind the wheel of a Lamborghini your first time out and then expect you can just go buy a used Hyundai. Your porn stars are for experienced professionals, not noobs. So this lad needs to listen to his family, stay home, hit the books and stick to playing whatever passes for “Fallout: 4″ over there.

That said, I think we can learn a lot from a culture advanced enough to give away a month in a hotel with an adult film star as a contest prize. WEEI listeners lose their crap any time we give away a pair of Bruins tickets. We obviously have a long way to go as a society.

There are hockey fights, and then there are hockey fights between the vitriolic blood feud that is Riviere-du-Loup and Thetford Mines Isothermic. That is a border war that has spanned the generations.

But what makes this one go all next level is that one player at the 1-minute mark, shredding on his air guitar to Rammstein’s “Du Hast.” That’s when the hockey fight is elevated to an art form. According to Reddit, that Guitar Hero’s name is Joel Theriault. And whether or not he can actually play him some ice hockey, I need him on the Bruins and I needed it five minutes ago. A man that inspired can wear the spoked ‘B’ for me any time.

Austen Lane was a defensive end who’s out of football after playing for four teams over five seasons. And Tuesday, with the NFL scouting combine coming up, he shared with the world some of the questions he got from talent evaluators when he was being scouted back in 2010. Which begs a simple, three-word question: What the hell?

We’ve known for a while that NFL scouts ask bizarre questions ever since Dez Bryant said they asked him if his mother is a prostitute. But this is just surreal. It’s one thing to try to get under a guy’s skin and elicit an emotional response. But these aren’t so much psychological profile questions as they are the Voight-Kampff test:

It’s like they’re not looking for defensive ends and wide receivers, they’re looking for replicants. I mean, what exactly is the correct answer to the “Would you murder someone with a gun or a knife?” question? That is, if you’re looking to land a job rushing quarterbacks? And is it acceptable to reject the premise and say, “I’d murder him with a candlestick in the conservatory”? Or would that drop your score and make you a fifth-round pick instead of a fourth? And how is it that in spite of all this psychological profiling, teams still burn high picks on damaged, feral maniacs like Greg Hardy and Johnny Manziel?

I just find it hilarious that a multi-billion dollar empire like the NFL would think it can project how well a guy will play football based on what kind of underpants he wears or whether his ‘do makes him smoke weed. That said, if the Patriots opt to ask prospects if they’re willing to kill someone, I can’t say as I blame them.
