Boston sports fans have been treated to a week of talk of curses and reminders of past ghosts thanks to the good people of Montreal and FOX Sports. If it’s not the Montreal jumbotron playing clips of “too many men on the ice”, it was the insufferable replays and coverage of past Red Sox frustration by FOX last night. But this week we have seen the Canadien Collision and the great Alex Rodriguez pull of some bonehead baserunning. Keep those ghosts in the closet.
I don’t think D&C are unlikeable. They’re passionate and sometimes their comments and opinions can be perceived as negative. But they are incredibly smart, well prepared and far more knowledgeable about sports than Toucher and Rich. That’s why they’re as successful as they are. Toucher and Rich are talented radio guys and they have a following, but if you want sports, D&C are the choice.
