How’s your off-season goin’?

Mine got a little better yesterday thanks to my friend Bruce Allen and what it perhaps the best piece of writing he has ever done for our mothership, the Boston Sports Media Watch.

I’m mentioning it here because Bruce has masterfully – and authoritatively – responded to a particularly ugly rumor that has circulated for the past several months, which happens to involve a guy who’s pretty important to Patriots fans.

The Boston Herald – and their media brethren that took their word for it – can go get its effin’ shinebox. As can you others who thought the Herald (and others) was ‘reporting’ and not simply crawling in the gutter as usual. You thought it was pretty much fact? Think again.

Congratulations on a job well done, Bruce. And thanks.
