Wade Boggs was many things. One of the great hitters ever. Gold glove third baseman. Hall of Famer. And now, permanently memorialized on the Fenway facade with his No. 26 retired.

More than that, he was one of the all time great characters to ever come through this little laugh factory we call Boston sports. From the story about falling out of a moving car to the one about the time a guy pulled a knife on him so he willed himself invisible to the fact that he hit .750 over his career with women in scoring position, Boggs was a classic who would have dominated the social media age.

But there is one legendary Wade Boggs story that stands above all the others. And that is the one about the time he downed 64 12-ounce Miller Lites on a cross-country flight. A story that so resonates that a full 30 years later, the gang on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” did a whole episode about it this past season.

I might have said Wednesday that the highest honor an athlete can achieve is a statue, but I take it back. Being the plot of a sitcom decades after you retired makes you a true immortal.

(It bears repeating: NSFW. Don’t click this at work unless you want the summer off.)

I am going with the rare back-to-back coaching tirade posts, because this is too good to pass up.

Lingerie Legends Football League head coach Jerricho Harris of the Austin Acoustic is an artist working in a different medium than Frisco RoughRiders manager Joe Mikulik is. Where Mikulik prefers broad, physical comedy, Harris’ canvas is language. And if he wanted to send those ladies on his team the message that he’s playing for keeps, that the kidding around is pretty much over, he succeeded. Message delivered, loud and clear. And if they don’t start taking the game as seriously as he does, than they’re really nothing more than fairly attractive, tough women with nice bodies playing football in their underwear. He wants them to play like champions, or he’ll die trying.

Well played, good sir. Well played indeed.

The guys discuss the absolute thrashing the Cleveland Cavaliers handed the Toronto Raptors last night.
Ted Olson, joins the guys to talk about how he and Tom Brady plan to attack the latest court ruling.

I am such a fan of a good manager tirade that I think I need a classier word to describe it. One of those terms you use for someone addicted to something that’s ultimately not good for him but makes him sound classy. Like “enthusiast.” Or “aficionado.” Maybe I’ll call myself a tirade connoisseur, because I have such an appreciation of this fine art form.

This is the clip we played on Wednesday’s “Final Drive” of legendary tirade maestro Joe Mikulik of the Frisco RoughRiders. I’ve been an admirer of his work for a long time, and obviously the audio alone didn’t do him justice. Sure, you can accuse ol’ Crazy Joe of just reworking his same routine. But then again, if you go see U2 you want to hear them play the old hits. And Mikulik is just giving the people what they came to minor league baseball to see. A middle-aged man lose his mind over nothing. Don’t ever change, skipper.
