Dammit. This is more clever than anything I could ever do.

Montreal just had their lunch handed to them. That was awesome.
It’s that simple. Don’t get smoked in the last two quarters, keep it close, and Melo will go iso for the last 5 minutes and cost them ‘Bockers Game 5.

NEW FRANK TURNER! NEW YEAH YEAH YEAHS! NEW FLAMING LIPS! And a really good band I just found called the Thee Oh Sees!
YouTube is 8 years old today… and we celebrate with one of my favorite videos of all-time. NSFW!
Ahhhhhh…. that’s better. By the way, he got suspended. Let’s get back at it, folks!
While These are somewhat blurry photos and there are probably many thousands of innocent people who look like them, and innocent until blah blah blah let’s get these fuckers.
That’s a link to the montages we’ve made over the past few days.
I’m not gonna try to make sense of what happened at the Marathon, or even try to gather my thoughts about it. I’m just going to sit here and tell you something you probably already know, which is something we’re known to do around here.
We are fine. We’re good. It’ll take a hell of a lot more than that to shake us. Yes, we lost far too much and far too many yesterday, and we grieve for the fallen and their families – but we are still here, and we’re not scared. Far from it. We never have been the type to be scared; and even if we were, we’d never admit it.
What we are is something else, and we’re certainly not afraid to tell you exactly what that is.
We’re thankful, sad, lucky, appreciative, and angry – all at the same time. (Some of us might be a little drunk, too.) We are what we are, and what we always have been: friends, family, and a prideful (and often prickly) people, brought together by a sense of community unlike anywhere else I’ve ever seen.
We are everyone who has ever called this city home: from those of us who’ve lived here all our lives in the houses where our uncles beat the crap out of each other as kids; to those of us who only came here to go to school or to work for a while and moved on, but took some of that trademark snark with us to our new destination. You might leave the city, but this city never leaves you. Whether physically, mentally, or spiritually, we’re all still here, in a way. In a very good way.
That’s what this town does. It sticks with you – so we stick with it, no matter what. We are rabidly and irrationally devoted to this city that we often complain about to each other, but will dive across a table to defend if someone disrespects. And we’re known to be more than a little stubborn & nonsensical about such things.
We don’t ask for your sympathy, for its a trait were not all too familiar with. We just ask you to keep a look out…. and when we find the ones responsible, you probably are going to want to look the other way.
Yes, we’re heated, but we’ll be fine. Yeah, we might really wanna swear and curse and scream, but we know our mothers are keeping an eye on us and are worried sick, so we’ll keep it together – tighter than a studio in a Southie three-decker.
We’ll get through this the only way we know how, and we’ll still be here. Why?
Because we’re Boston. That’s why.

I can’t breathe.
Have a good weekend!
Between this and “Game Of Thrones,” I feel like I’m missing out.
Highlights from the Lakers very suspicious 2013 playoff push.
After an embarrassing blowout to the Clippers on February 14th, it seemed unlikely that the Lakers would make the postseason. Over the next month they went on a miraculous winning spree that pushed them firmly back into the playoff picture.
What a coinkydink!
This was after a LOT of scotch. But he did it!
Warning: NSFW language ahead! Headphones, people!
Spot fuckin’ on.
Ahhhh, a video of a drugged up kid after oral surgery. This one is of a girl in Kansas named Abbie. Through the entire video of her car ride home, she can’t stop crying – because she’s convinced she MURDERED her wisdom teeth. She’s holding them in a little cup the whole time, and a lot of what she says is slurred, but she basically talks about how she loved them and was sorry for what happened to them.
Let’s do this thing already. Our kids are going to be ashamed enough of us as it is.
This guy’s reaction to April Fool’s Day pranks is more measured and reasonable than CBS Radio’s policy on them, so watching this video is as close as I’ll get to having fun on April 1.

You have no idea how long this took to figure out… and yes – I’m SHOCKED “motherfucker” didn’t make the cut.
Oh, hey Joey. I hope you enjoyed your sure-to-be-brief Hollywood career. Lord knows puberty’s gonna up and kic-

Just thought I’d share. I’m going to be completely wrong, but go Hoosiers! (And FUCK Gonzaga.)
To many, it’s been a surprise when I tell them I’m happy they found each other, and have become a couple.
Mostly because now I only have to hope for one horrific plane crash instead of two.
They’re scum, and I hope their next poops are square.
Sorry I’m not sorry.
This was at the Magic/Pacers game last night. Dude was playing better D than Avery Bradley.
While the GIF by itself is amazing, when the NBAtv guys got a hold of it… damn.
Chris Webber breaks it down:
They played valiantly, but it’s tough to win when you’re playing 8 on 5. (I’m sorry, but LeBron gets more superstar calls than anyone short of Jordan. It’s straight-up ridiculous.) They almost one with no KG, no Rondo and with our flimsy bench that was made in China & shipped overnight. They still almost beat the Lockout Champs*.
Almost won’t cut it in the playoffs. See you in the playoffs, Miami.
Terry & Lee still aren’t pulling their weight, though. Bass has to step up, too.

I would’ve written this yesterday, but we were busy drinking in your honor. I’m going to go ahead and assume you’re ok with that. We miss you.
I know it’s sending you to the YouTube page, but trust me: It’s worth it.
FILTH. Just… straight filth. That’s unbelievable. #RIPBrandonKnight
So stop muckin’ with it, you hear? Your parody of it isn’t funny.
Sadly, our dog Bentley had to undergo surgery on his dislocated hip yesterday, which he suffered at the hands of a groomer I took him to on Thursday.
A quick recap of our weekend: After I picked him up for the groomers and discovered he was hurt, I took him to the vet. They attempted to reset his left hind leg back into the joint Thursday afternoon, but it didn’t stay in (which isn’t uncommon for small dogs, as their hips are fragile) and it popped back out of the socket on Saturday, which made the surgery a necessity. He was at the vet hospital all weekend, and underwent the procedure last night. (I will spare you the details, but it’s a gnarly thing, to say the least.)
The good news is that he came through it fine, according to the surgeon (who absolutely adores him) and after several near-sleepless nights, we get to pick him up from the hospital today.
As I understand it, he’ll have staples and a pretty badass scar (and be saddled with the cone of shame, I assume) and need to be restricted to a crate (which he abhors, as most rescue dogs do) for at least 10-14 days, when he’ll have the staples removed.
He’ll have to undergo physical therapy and weeks of pain medication, but the doctors tell me he should regain almost all of his mobility. He’s a tough little bastard.
I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who’s reached out to Amanda Moriarty and I over the past few days with their thoughts, prayers and well-wishes. We ADORE this dog (I’m pretty sure Amanda loves him more than she loves me) and I always thought it was weird how seriously people regarded their pets… before I had one of my own. I totally get it now. For all of you (especially our families) who’ve helped us by lending us the money to cover his medical bills (Pro-tip: IF YOU HAVE A PET, BUY PET INSURANCE RIGHT NOW!) and also for listening to us stress out and lose our minds over this: Thank you. It means a lot. We’ll pay you back as soon as we can. I don’t know what we’d do without you.
For those of you who’ve asked about the groomer – I don’t want to really get into it – He’s obviously responsible and has already admitted as much. He offered to pay the original $900+ bill completely (on a $100/week payment plan) on Friday, after some initial hesitation to owning up to it – but he did admit fault and shook my hand on it. But now that surgery was required, he’s hedging and balking at covering the costs. He’s claiming it must have been a “preexisting condition” and that he can’t afford to pay it, and that it’ll put him out of business. I’m going to give him a few days to think about it before we decide how to advance; while we focus on getting Bentley home and on the road to recovery, as that’s the most important thing right now. We’ll keep you updated. I’ll post pictures of the beast soon! Thanks again!
