Kevin Youkilis Is Reportedly Marrying Tom Brady’s Sister

In related news, thousands of Boston sports fans were reported to have died when their heads exploded in excitement.  From the Boston Herald:

This is supposed to be hush-hush and on the deep down-low, but you know us. It’s time to pop the bubbly because Kevin Youkilis and Tom Brady’s sis, Julie, are engaged!

The happy couple, who spent Super Bowl week together with the Brady clan in Indy, got engaged “recently” after dating for at least a year, we’re told from a few F.O.Ys.

So where was Youk’s betrothed when he was making the red carpet scene at the Maxim Super Bowl bash? Nowhere to be found. But we were reliably informed that Tom Brady’s future brother-in-law was stashed in the family suite at the stadium to watch 12 lose his second championship to Giants you-know-what Eli Manning.

It does sound like gossip, so take this one with a grain of salt, maybe.

Good Morning Generation

Quick baseball rant: I don’t want to hear another word about whether the Boston Red Sox drank beer or not.  It goes on everywhere.  Get over it.  Does it really matter whether the drinking took place back in the clubhouse or in the dugout?  The answer is no.  Also, don’t you think a blog like Deadspin or TMZ would have been all over that months ago?  Surely ONE photo would have emerged of Josh Beckett slamming a beer.  I’m sick of this great MLB playoffs getting overshadowed by an organization that somehow feels it has the right to still dominate the baseball conversation weeks after they completed one of the worst collapses in baseball history.  The arrogance shown by the front office in throwing their entire clubhouse under the bus in the now infamous Boston Globe piece is shocking.  But apparently that wasn’t enough as they then completed the hubris by shipping off the man who made all of this recent success possible in Theo Epstein.  Of course getting that deal completed in a reasonable fashion wasn’t sufficient either and so they’ve dragged along the negotiations for two weeks and counting and guess what?  If you’re not in Dallas or St Louis right now, you’d probably never guess there’s a World Series being played.  The Boston Red Sox ruined baseball.

Generation Y, where Tony LaRussa definitely scored a BASEketball style psyche out on Ron Washington last night.
