TMZ interviewed a drunk Johnny Manziel outside of a nightclub, and Manziel went on a rant about how his partying isn't a problem. The guys have some fun with the interview and discuss Manziel's future.
During Saturday's Red Sox game, Tim Neverett asked where fans are listing, and Lisa in Carlisle tweeted that she was listening with her horse, Spike. Glenn, Lou and Christian made fun of her, and an angry Lisa calls in to defend herself.

Lou is still angry at John Farrell for making so many mistakes during the first few Red Sox games. The guys talk to callers about how long Farrell will last as manager of the Red Sox and what he's doing wrong.
After pinch hitting Chris Young for Travis Shaw in the 6th inning of the Red Sox home opener, Lou has had enough with John Farrell. Glenn and Christian have fun with Lou who goes off the rails with anger.

Screw this Tigers fan. Screw the five foul balls he caught on Opening Day. Screw the 405-ball pace that he’s on for the 2016 season. Screw his generosity in giving them all away. Screw his fame, dominating the 24-hour news cycle. Mostly though, screw him.

I say this not out of jealousy. Sure, I’ve been going to Fenway my entire life and have never come within five rows of checking “Caught a Ball” off my bucket list. I say it because I am not impressed.

I mean, look where the guy was sitting. Up high. Elevated above the seats in front of him. A big, wide standing room behind him. Every thing just funnels right towards his seats. It’s like a bear standing in the middle of a spot where the river comes through an opening in the rocks and being impressed with himself for catching a trout.

More importantly, this clown faced positively zero competition for those balls. Everyone around him just sat on their hands and let him have his pick. Put this guy in the middle of the grandstand in Section 26 at Fenway and by the second ball he would have had to commit mass murder to have as clean a shot as he got those.

Besides, this isn’t even the most impressive foul ball streak we’ve seen in last 15 years. That record still belongs to Doug Flutie:

“I had a streak of four straight games. Let me get this in order: Tampa Bay Rays game at Fenway up in a luxury box—caught a ball. Playoff game out in Anaheim behind the first base dugout—caught a ball. Opening day against the Yankees sitting on the Green Monster—caught a ball. And then the next game I went to was against the Yankees a little later on, on a line drive down the first-base line. So, I had four consecutive games where I actually caught a ball.”

Four straight games. Four vastly different seats. Four balls. That is a wizard. Or an elf, depending on how you view Doug Flutie. So laugh it up, Tigers fan. Enjoy your 15 minutes of fame. But one lucky seat at one game is not going to make you a “Dancing With the Stars”-level foul ball legend.

It’s with a heavy heart that I read the Is What It Is blog about the Patriots releasing Tyler Gaffney. You might wonder why a team cutting ties with a running back who spent his two seasons with the team on injured reserve and never made a carry for them would elicit any kind of reaction at all. So I’ll explain.

Gaffney was more than just a promising pick up for the club when they claimed him off of waivers in 2014. For me, it became personal. The moment the Pats signed him, I wrote a blog about it and almost immediately heard from Gaffney’s girlfriend, Kristen Louelle. Kristen is a model, Patriots fan and selfie enthusiast who was not only nice enough to let me blog about our Internet friendship, she absolutely would have joined the pantheon of great Patriots WAGs. Sadly, due to injuries and the bad fortune every pro athlete faces, it was never meant to be.

By no means is this the end of the line for Gaffney or Louelle. I’m sure they’ll go on to great things. It’s just sad on a lot of levels that it won’t be in New England. At least not for now. But as Rick said at the end of “Casablanca,” “Louelle, this looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
