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.

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 ...

And vice-versa? Dan Shaughnessy Watch has been chronicling the CHB's latest affectation.

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

Dan Shaughnessy Watch explains why.

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

Is there nothing he won't stoop to?

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.

By - 5/1/07 - 12:35 pm

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

Dave Scott gets all parental on Dan Shaughnessy and Curt Schilling:

... At some point you would think a higher-up in both organizations, the Sox and the NYT Co. (which, of course, are one in the same in 17 percent of the ways) would have a sit-down with their respective brushback pitchers and encourage them (strongly) to focus on the tasks at hand -

A cool thing about blogs is: If some warped, frustrated old man tries to put you down, you don't just have to sit there and take it:

... Putting his inherent 'toolness' on display for all the world to see did far more than I could ever hope to do by trying to explain what a dope he is. ...

Dan Shaughnessy Watch puts the kibosh on one explanation for his absence:

Contrary to rumblings on the internet, a freshly tanned Dan is not returning to Boston after failing to land the role of Beaker in the touring company of the Muppet Show. ...

Of course, his slamming of everybody who reads Curt Schilling's blog makes the wait worth it.... Read more

Dan Shaughnessy Watch compiles a list of terms the CHB uses over and over and over again, such as "Young Theo" and, oddly, "Grey Poupon" - and solicits your help:
