After another rough outing for David Price and another game where John Farrell managed his bullpen questionably, Danny Picard gives them a piece of his mind.

I know I’m being blatantly manipulated here. This is a transparent ad for “Game of Thrones: Season 6″ and I’m being a sucker to post it without charging advertising rates. But I can’t help it. Maisie Williams is one of the absolute coolest, most lovable celebrities out there and a princess ruling over most of Nerd Culture right now. She is so chill she’ll show up at ComicCon in costume so no one will recognize her and she can just get her Geek on.

So go ahead and manipulate me, HBO. I hate to ever wish a weekend away, but Sunday night’s season premiere can’t come fast enough.

My and producer Andy’s favorite Philadelphia rage monster is back. And it is a beautiful thing.

The creative genius I call @EDP445 (because I want to keep my job) had kind of lost his mojo when things were going well with the Eagles. Like when they beat the Patriots in December and he cried real tears of happiness, he was a shell of the man we know and love. Then when the Eagles granted his wish and fired Chip Kelly, he was muted at best.

But now @EDP445 is enraged again and all is right with the world. I mean, just check out the part where he drops to his knees to pray and starts f-bombing his Lord. It’s comedy gold. He’s obviously the Hulk of sports fans. He needs to be furious in order to function. Without that adrenaline, he’s just another ordinary slob like the rest of us. Fortunately, being an Eagles fan gives him and endless supply of outrage and his fans like us an bottomless well of entertainment. We like him when he’s angry.

BroBibleBack in 2014, Manziel dropped to the 22nd pick in the NFL Draft. Thanks to a tipster, we were able to obtain the New England Patriots scouting report on Manziel. The veracity was questioned in twitter circles at the time, though we were able to confirm the origins thanks to the authorship information in the MS. Word document. …

[W]hat the Patriots scouts observed about Manziel’s work ethic and character now seem to be playing out in a very real way. A few notable quotes from the document worth revisiting:

  • From the vibe of online articles, father seems a little too involved and overstepping his boundaries.
    Vibeon this guy keeps getting worse. Support staff members are sick of him and ready for him to go. Described as a cocky, me-guy.
  • Loves football, FBI is high as well. Everything has been pretty well-documented in online articles about the kid, but sources say he’s a spoiled brat (grandfather gives him allowance, father bought him luxury car).
  • Comes from ‘outlaw bloodlines’, mom moved the family to Kerrville to get away from father’s wild family.
  • Father’s family is said to be very shady people, always into something, they are the root of Johnny’s personality.
  • Doesn’t study the game, said to know about 60% of the offense in ’12, never watches film; one source said only time he watched film during ’12 was before ALUN.
  • Teammates don’t dislike him, but there’s some resentment, more so in the offseason when he isn’t coming to workouts and they are busting their butt.

Reading it two years later is almost surreal considering everything that has happened.

Wow. The Patriots have more than their share of critics when it comes to scouting and drafting. Every time they lose a postseason game or a draft pick doesn’t pan, there’s somebody jumping out of the weeds to scream that great coach Bill Belichick is getting screwed over by terrible GM Bill Belichick. But when they’re right, they’re right.

I don’t know whom the scout is that wrote this report, but give that man a raise, a corner office and the “Front Office Employee of the Year” parking space near the door because this is practically wizardry. The only way it could’ve been more accurate is if it said “I’d say that within three years, Manziel will be trashing a mansion in a coke-and-shrooms fueled blackout and be wasted out of his gourd, dancing in a ball pit at Coachella.”

So congratulations and thanks to the anonymous personnel guy who saw this train-wreck coming. I only wish he’d been assigned to cover the University of Florida prospects about six failed picks and one murderer ago.

I’m afraid I can’t speak too intelligently on the wrestling career of Joan “Chyna” Laurer, the ninth wonder of the world. But with the news of her being found dead at her home in California Wednesday at the age of 45, I’d be derelict in my blogging duties if I didn’t say something.

Chyna entered the pro wrestling world in the late 90s, during a time when I wasn’t paying much attention. I could regurgitate stuff about her career off her Wikipedia page, but then again so could you, so I won’t bother. The fact is, you didn’t to be a huge rasslin’ fan to know who she was. Her fame absolutely transcended the sport into the pop culture to a level few other WWE stars have ever experienced.

In the early 2000s she took her high profile to the pages of Playboy (back when that was a thing) and it was one of the highest selling issues they ever produced. She started making appearances on shows like “3rd Rock from the Sun” and “Fear Factor.” And allegedly was up for the role in “Terminator 3″ that eventually went to Kristanna Loken.

But the inescapable element to all of her fame was that with it, there was a sadness. You watch that video and you can’t help but see a bright, strong, articulate woman, but someone who was broken. There’s nothing wrong with a grown woman going into porn if that’s what she wants. But the way she describes it, the choice was more out of desperation. About staying relevant. Of clinging to the fame that the WWE took away from her. So it’s no surprise that her later TV credits are all from the spin cycle of fading celebrity: “The Surreal Life” and “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.” So it’s to Laurer’s credit that she got away from chasing fame, started taking care of herself, went overseas and put her life back together.

Sadly though, that life is over too soon as it is with a disturbing number of former wrestling stars. I have nothing really to add other than the last words of the movie Patton where he quotes the ancient Roman saying that was always whispered in the ears of their conquering heroes: “All glory is fleeting.”
