In regard to my dinnertime post about Adam Hyzdu
comes this fun fact from JB: "Adam Hyzdu has now been a member of the Red Sox organization on four separate times - this is his 2nd major league stint- and that ties with him with Steve Lyons
for most tours of duty with the Red Sox."
Well, set him a table at Via friggin' Matta
Now, I chase only Ty Cobb and Pete Rose.
Congrats to you all for my 4,000th hit on TLBR.
In honor of this milestone, I'm changing the masthead to reveal what exactly TLBR means. It's stayed virtually a secret, with the exception of the two people who figured it out and three people I told when I was drunk.
The interpretation of it can be taken many different ways - it's intended to be that way.
Good on ya, readers.
Attaboy, captain. First inning, two-out RiSP makes me berry, berry happy.
My new business venture - Operation Stress Fracture - had a very big day. A. Very. Big. Day. If this continues for the next eight weeks, I'm going to supplant Jude Law as the world's heartthrob. But I won't let the fame and my devastingly handsome good looks skew my in any way.
Actually, Jude may have just supplanted himself. The nanny? Not even if it were Fran Drescher the Nanny... As Mo Vaughn once said, "dumb stupid Jude Law, HE STOO-PID!"
Had a surf n' turf burrito tonight. Filet mignon. Shrimp. Lettuce. Cocktail sauce. Soft flour tortilla. Yum.
Hey, where has Neve Campbell
What is the big effin' deal with two members of the Northwestern women's lacrosse team - Kate Darmody and Shelby Chlopak - wearing flip-flops to the White House
? If they wore weapons of mass destruction, then maybe you'd have an argument, but flip-flops?
And according to wire reports, during an appearance on NBC's Today Show Monday, the two players who wore the controversial chausseurs - Kate Darmody and Shelby Chlopak - said they planned to auction off the flip-flops they wore to the White House, with the proceeds to go toward a fund for a 10-year-old girl with a brain tumor. Anybody think badly of their fashion sense, now?
Hazel, you know I love ya...but when you kick it back after a SportsDesk update, it's Don and Jerry
...not RemDawg. Don't go down that dark road. And, to answer your question, yes...I can handle more.

---Former Boston Herald columnist Michael Gee played himself
. Plain and simple.
Gee made some off-color remark about the aesthetics of one of his female students in the summer class he was teaching at B.U. Was it lewd and gross? No. Was it left of center? Definately. Boston Sports Media columnist Dave Scott uncovered it all.
Now, in the effort of full disclosure, Dave Scott is a good friend of mine. And I support his writing about this situation.
Dave has a Friday column which I have linked to this site. Not just because he's a friend, but because he's a damn good writer. And he's after the truth. His column is about the sports media in the Hub. He's a sportswriter whose beat is sportswriters. This was newsworthy.
Did Dave blow the whistle? Maybe. Did Dave's inquiries get the ball rolling for the B.U. administration to terminate Michael Gee? Probably. Do Dave and Michael Gee have the best personal and professional relationship? Well, they're not having passover seder, if that answers your question...
But did Dave make a post as someone in a position of power - and teachers and students are indeed a power relationship - and sign his own name? No. Did Dave put that in a forum that is widely read and scrutinized? No. Did Dave have the power to fire Michael Gee? No. Did Dave lobby for that? No.
Michael Gee acted. B.U. reacted. Simple as that.
Once again, thanks for 4k. It's awesome. So are you.
