A couple days ago, Rob expressed disgust with the way Dan Shaughnessy compared Kevin Garnett to Alex Rodriguez. He e-mailed Shaughnessy to let him know. Shaughnessy responded:

sorry -- no time for fanboy rants.


Which Rob also analyzes, concluding:

... Who else wants to start a collection/bake sale to raise enough money to get Carl Everett back here and pay him to

Could Bob Ryan be blogging about this Curse Boy train wreck of a column when he writes the following?

Have we no institutional memory? People are beginning to act as if something odd is going on in the Celtics-Hawks series, as if we've never seen this before.

If so, that would be so cool.

Because, as Dan Shaughnessy Watch notes, he keeps writing about it:

... Time travel has become Dan's most recent obsession, so much so that one has to wonder if it has bumped Curt Schilling down a peg on the CHB-obsession meter. (If I am counting right, there was only one dig at Schilling all week). ...

Dan Shaughnessy Watch deciphers the code:

State the obvious; criticize the expectations (ones that he feeds with one hand and slaps away with the other); ridicule the fans; state the obvious again; and finally contradict himself undermining the whole premise of his column.

Dan Shaughnessy just can't leave The Curse alone.

Dan Shaughnessy Watch goes What the hell?

Suddenly it's clear, the devil took over the Boston Globe sports department some 20 years ago and left his spawn at the keyboard leaving us all to suffer.

Shaughnessy is in full-bore shank mode today, ripping into Curt "Big Lug" Schilling. Why'd he wait so long? Now that he's getting older, must take him longer to collect all his bile in a jar. Or as Dan Shaughnessy Watch puts it:

... In the end, this was an amateurish hack job. In the ultimate irony....Shaughnessy, the media whore himself, is spread too

Preferably in suppository form?

Yes, The Loss truly sucked, Dan. We get it. But this isn't Baltimore in 1970 after losing three championships in three different sports in one year to New York. So enough with The Curse/Grady Little/Joe Namath crap, you tired old hack.Read more

Dan Shaughnessy Watch reports that the CHB's Curt Schilling column today is basically the same as his Curt Schilling column on Oct. 8:

... Now a little prediction, if Schill gets bombed tonight, the Shank claws will come out in full force ...

I admit it: I'm a big fan of Curt Schilling as a ballplayer. And I love nothing more than a cutting blog post. Especially one about Dan Shaughnessy. But even still, tonight I feel like that guy who pulls Curt aside as he tries to learn Boston English in that commercial: No, no, Curt, you don't have to stoop to the CHB's...Read more

So Mr. Shaughnessy's daughter asks friends to write positive reviews of his new book on Amazon. Word of the e-mail gets out and, well, the results speak for themselves....Read more

One guess whom Adam Reilly is writing about in the Phoenix this week. Even-handed article, includes quotes from the man himself AND gives us some new nicknames to use as synonyms for "CHB" (oops, did I just give it away?), such as: The Man in the Fright Wig.

Disclosure: I'm quoted in the article as a griper....Read more

Dbvader tries to goad Shaughnessy into calling him up and yelling at him by declaring today's column on the Sox/Yankees game possibly one of the worst columns I have ever been forced to read.Read more

Because, as Michael Femia points out, the CHB dares to point out the blindingly obvious facts you would never think of writing about - In this case, that sports fans are more forgiving of their own players. Bonus Shanky points for once again managing to slap Manny Ramirez in a column about Randy Moss and for being unable to figure out why Sox...Read more

It might look like The CHB Blog:

... Many people are surprised to learn that long before I was a world-class sportswriter I was one of the Campbells Soup Kids. ...

Via Dan Shaughnessy Watch, which today tallies up just how many times the CHB has used that "Sons of (current manager's name)" thing over the years, and adds:

... Dan's frequent Clive
