Sports Media Musings: Shaughnessy’s Column, Twitter Nonsense, Watney Leaving?, ESPN Book Movie?

Oh Danny-boy I have never been one to kill a columnist. No matter how zany their take is, I’ll really let a writer reach before calling them a hack. Mainly because as a columnist you are asked to provoke thought and debate on the reg – and that is easier said then done. I give […]

I know what you are (obviously) thinking. “Ryan said he’d do a media column every Friday. I need my analysis. I need my fix.” Or, if you are Andy Gresh, you’d just pass it off by calling me a “P***Y” (We’ll get to that later). Anyway, truth is, I had written something up – but […]

Sports Media Musings: Jack Edwards Inks Deal, NESN vs CSN, Gus Johnson, & Bill Simmons

Excuse me, while I channel my inner Jason McIntyre… Boston’s storied sports history is rich with both personalities on the field, court, and rink as well as the personalities covering our beloved teams.

Video: Jack Edwards’ Tea Party Speech After Bruins-Canadiens Game 7

If you watch hockey on NESN, you know what you get with Jack Edwards. He’s a pretty damn good play-by-play man. He knows the game. He also loves the Bruins and hates the Canadiens. He took his nerdy nature to a whole new level Wednesday night after the Game 7 win, hearkening back to the […]

Tom Caron, NESN Reach New Deal On Contract

One of my friends from across the pond has a different way of saying the same thing… “you can’t polish […]
