Gerry Callahan posts a 10 tweet thread about leaving WEEI

At around 10 o’clock last night, Gerry Callahan sent out 10 consecutive tweets about leaving WEEI, thanking specific people, and what played a big role in his departure. “1) Well, if I had known I was gonna be this popular, I would have gotten my ass fired a long time ago. Can’t complain though: 35 years in radio, newspapers and magazines and my first time getting the axe. I’m just glad they gave me the last seven weeks of the summer off.”  “2) If anyone from Entercom management had called, I would have thanked them. Maybe tomorrow. I wish...

Media members comment on Gerry Callahan leaving WEEI

Former and current Boston personalities gave their thoughts on Gerry Callahan’s exit from WEEI. Kirk Minihane, Callahan’s former WEEI co-host, was very opinionated on Callahan’s departure. His first tweet was, “This is all on Entercom. They let Bob Murchison call the shots. A Disgrace. Shameful. I’ve been unfair to Gerry the last few months for sure — misplaced anger. This is just bulls**t.” (Future articles to come about what all this means.) John Dennis, Callahan’s first full time co-host on WEEI, tweeted, “When Gerry and I were good, we were very good. Loved sharing Boston’s amazing events w/ALL of...

Rest of MLB, take note of how Tigers handled delay

I was originally going to rip the Detroit Tigers and the rest of Major League Baseball. The Red Sox and Tigers still played after a 4 hour pre-game rain delay on Saturday. That left me baffled and frustrated. How could an MLB team make their fans pick between two undesirable options? On one hand, a fan could choose to head home after paying for their ticket, wasting their money. The other option is waiting in the park for the game to start, which might not even be played that day. Having their loyal fans make that choice is nothing...

Torey Krug appears to take shot at Kyrie Irving on Twitter

On Sunday Torey Krug went to social media to point out past quotes by Kyrie Irving. Krug quote tweeted the now infamous Irving statement before this season with the Thinking Emoji and No Mouth Emoji. “If you guys will have me back,” Irving said to Celtic season ticket holders , “I plan on re-signing here next summer.”  Now, on the surface, this was a simple reaction that many people had at the time. Krug was certainly not the only one to bring up this quote and wonder what had changed for Irving since October. The more interesting part is...

Tom Brady Takes Jab at Max Kellerman’s Infamous “Cliff” Comment

“Tom Brady’s just about done,” said ESPN’s First Take co-host Max Kellerman on July 28th, 2016. “It could be his next game he plays, it could be a year from now. But he is going to fall off a cliff.” Kellerman would then complete this infamous rant by adding, “Tom Brady is going to be a bum in short order.”  We are just a month away from reaching the third year anniversary of this proclamation. In the first year after Kelerman’s remark, Brady did not have a memorable year. He only won the Super Bowl and MVP of the...

Red Sox need to take advantage of upcoming stretch

Christian Vazquez capped an exciting comeback with an extra inning walk off homer on Friday night. The Sox managed to erase a 5-1 deficit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays when Chris Sale did not have his best stuff. One would hope this exciting victory could jump start the Sox into a series win. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The Red Sox then proceeded to have a really bad weekend. They lost two out of three at home to a Blue Jays team that was 27-48 going into this series. The bullpen blew a 6-1 lead on Saturday....
