< I often wondered what the reason was for Holley shuffling off to Chicago
for that brief time. I had spoken with him at a restaurant prior to a
Sox game last year and he clearly loved it in Boston. > - Cecil
If you recall, Michael “The Assassin” Holley was the most outspoken
anti-Pitino critic of that era, ever favoring and quoting the views of
players such as Walker. The liberal (closet conservative?) Globe found
Holley to be a talented writer but ever too liberal in his views... not
near as fair and balanced as Fox’s O’Reilly. Post-Pitino, they were
happy to have him back, and he has been a model citizen since
concerning all things Danny.
How lucky can you be for posting today, Cecil? Your bonus is a 4-5
year old post to another board which I recently dug up but will now
TO JB WITH LOVE
(from Sports Guy’s AOL Celt board, many years ago)
>>I was even congratulated for my sarcastic, paranoid venom, by one of
our more strident members, a former Big East™ woman's coach (and it
now can be revealed; Michael Holly's mother). << -JB
I have come forward to defend my good mother’s honor.
JB, how do you say “cad” in French? It is times like this that I do wish
I had better recall of my Martinique heritage.
As you know Egg is NOT my dear sweet mother, merely my mistress. Now
almost 17, she is a mischievous, stubborn little imp, playfully annoying
at times, but nonetheless, of good heart. A few years back she had the
ill fortune of accompanying me to a Celtic Christmas party and while she
and the coach were whirling about in the tarantella this clumsy man’s left
Corinthian leather roach killer became entwined with her dainty little
pump and shattered her 2nd largest toe (now her 4th largest) in three
areas. As you know, she has been on a personal vendetta since.
Nonetheless, I am shocked by your gauche behavior in both insulting my
mother and in picking on this innocent minor. If you will recall little
Egg is the one who graciously toured you around this newspaper’s
Sports Dept. cubicles introducing you to fellow members of the sports
press while obtaining autographs and complimentary pop for you.
Is this your thanks?
Should this make any difference to you, she did tell me just minutes
ago that she is very pleased that you are finally seeing the light and
wonders if you would like to defect to the anti-Pitino camp instead
of blessing him for all his good works.
