Default Re: Boston columnist slams Texans

Some more background on him: He is the one who originally coined the "Curse of the Bambino". After the Sox won in 04, they showed the Boston press box and the only one who wasn't either in tears or elated was Schaugnassey. If I remember correctly, he actually had a slightly disappointed look on his face that his claim to fame was essentially null and void.

He is now known for these types of pieces; overly extreme in one direction (positive for Boston teams or negative) to get attention for his articles. He also wrote a piece a few years back about why Cornell "deserves" to beat Kentucky in March Madness that got national attention, mainly because of how dumb the logic behind it was.

In summary, he's a hack. He has the nickname "Curly Haired Boyfriend" and "Shanks" in Boston, neither endearing in any way. If you want a real take from the Patriots side, I can link to the articles from the more respected Patriots writers later this week when they are published.
