I had an ungodly lunch break full of waiting in line and driving all over creation. Moving is annoying, people. Sad you missed tagging along on my ride? Well, you’re in luck. Here’s what I learned on the radio:
1) Jason Varitek is done. If you live in the Boston area and are even a tepid sports fan, you’ve heard this ad nauseum for the last two months. Other than the Manny hatefest, this has been the number 1 sports topic (no. 2: WTF is wrong with Clay Buchholz? no. 451389: Paul Byrd signs with the Sox).
Maybe I’m a mindless drone, but I buy all the talk that Tek is defensively amazing, as part as working with pitchers goes. I also am a proponent of keeping a steady presence or two for an organization. Tek’s the guy. I say keep him until those tree trunk legs he has fall off.
2) Jeremy Guthrie leads the league in quality starts. Really?
3) I like my sugar with coffee and cream.
4) Official band of Perry Ellis The Hold Steady hates Radiohead. Not really, but it got your attention, right? How about this: they like Oasis more. Seriously.
