Rules, Rewarding Bad Behavior and Get Over Yourself

Just wanted to add a somewhat snarky blog about a much talked about subject over the past few weeks in the Bahston area.


We all loved him. He helped bring us 2 MLB World Series Titles, the first of which hadn't happened in 86 years. But I have to was time for him to go. I don't think it takes a huge sports fan to understand the concept of rewarding bad behavior. So I say KUDOS to the Boston Red Sox management for NOT rewarding bad behavior. OK, did they turn the other cheek for years while Manny played by his own set of rules...yes. Did they make the right decision in the end to trade him when push came to shove (pun intended)....absolutely. The day of the trade, you could not put on any local radio stations without the news being talked about from classical music DJs to the local college metal DJs. So it was a good life lesson opportunity for my kids as we drove home. If you act like an ASSSSS you will be sent packing, no matter how good you think you are at your job. Cal had no idea what I was talking about...there are only 2 athletes in her life-Tom Brady and David Ortiz (Big Papi). And surprisingly enough, Cat understood. She was always a big Manny fan.

And 2 Get Over Yourself Comments (not Bahston related, not necessarily sports related)

Katherine Heigl

(I know this is old news) but every time I see her picture I want to vomit. Declining an Emmy because the material in Grey's Anatomy is not good enough. OH FOR "F" SAKE ITS TELEVISION!!!! I know with movies like "Knocked Up" "Under Siege 2" and "Romy and Michelle, In the Beginning" under her belt one would think she is a master thespian, but lets have a little perspective, it's not the Nobel Peace Prize it's an EMMY, and you are not really a doctor.

Brett Favre

Please go away and do something productive.....please?

Rant with you lata!
