This is such a great concept that if I had the money, I would legitimately get to work on a start up. Get Offended could be the next Apple, Google or medicinal marijuana dispensary for 2016. An absolute can’t miss. “See an Internet video that you don’t think is funny? What are you gonna do? Stop watching and get on with your day? Now you can take any humorous situation and instantly ruin it with Get Offended.” Genius.

On the other hand, I probably shouldn’t be promoting the idea, since I earn my living on sports talk radio, which is basically the 20th century version of this. I had a guy call up this week screaming at me to shut up and said I physically made him shake with rage because I said I want more in return for the Celtics third overall pick than Gordon Haywood (five years in the NBA, zero All Star appearances). That special kind of person-to-person crazy keeps the lights on at WEEI and I probably shouldn’t want to replace it with any kind of technology. So in the meantime, keep the lunacy and the misplaced outrage to the phones and the comments section. I’ve got bills to pay.

The Internet can be a tough, unforgiving, difficult place. A blog-eat-blog world. But you have to respect the competition. Sometimes, you get bested by another blogger and if you’ve got any class at all, you’ve got to tip your keyboard to them. Such is the case today.

These series of posts is courtesy of the fine Masshole-Americans over at Off the Monster Sports. And I’ve got to give them all the credit in the world. My immediate reaction to the Cleveland Cavaliers Lebron James winning the NBA title was to acknowledge what a great player he is, but call him out for his rampant ego-maniacal narcissism for his insufferable answers to Doris Burke in the postgame. I intentionally stopped short of contrast his attitude with Tom Brady’s because I didn’t want to be accused of always bringing everything back to TB12. But these clips speak for themselves.

The Lebronies hate when you point this stuff out. Or make excuses for James’ out-of-control self-absorption by saying all great athletes are like that and he does deserve all the credit he gives himself. But here’s your proof of how wrong they are. Lebron exhausting his first person singular pronouns, Brady calling himself out for his two picks in a Super Bowl in which he went 13-for-15 with two touchdowns against the best defense of the decade, then immediately praising his teammates and giving his MVP truck away. Yin. Yang.

I’m man enough to point out when another blogger nailed it. But you still can’t spell King James without “I” and “me.”

The guys discuss what they all want from the Celtics on draft night. Christian pitches his hope for the Celtics to enter the Dragan era.
The guys discuss the premiere of Bill Simmon's new show on HBO, with Ben Affleck appearing to be drunk. They then discuss what would happen if they all went out drinking together.
Glenn, Lou, and Christian start the show talking about another Red Sox loss. Lou is forced to eat some crow as his favorite punching bag Hanley Ramirez finally shows some pop in his bat.

(NSFW, language)

This video of a ‘roided-out, tatted-up rage monkey screaming racist profanity at a group of people went viral earlier in the week. I didn’t post it because it’s more creepy and disturbing than entertaining.

But that was before this juiced-up ape spoke to British site The Tab to explain himself. His name is Zach Fisher, and he’d like you to know that while he might be an unstable, pig-ignorant moron, he’s no racist:

I just want people to know, dude, I love all colors. I’m no racist. I am who I am. There’s people out there of all colors that are horrible. Whites, browns, blacks, yellows out there, it doesn’t matter. It’s the color of your heart. … I just wish people could get over what happened back in the day, to Mexico or Blacks. That was back in the past, people don’t get over it and it sucks. I forgive and forget. A lot of people don’t.

Well, there you have it. Fisher might have screamed “Go cook my burrito, bitch!” with spittle flying out of his mouth to a group of Latinos, but that doesn’t make him a hater. He loves all colors. He’s not the worst kind of person, he’s more like a living, breathing Care Bear who only sees the color of your heart and is all about forgiveness. I’m glad we cleared that up. So thanks for opening up to us, Zach. And for setting my country back about 200 years.
