Patriots Games, Trump Pix, Aaron Hernandez, Ray Lewis, Ray Rice, Fenway vs Wrigley

No invite to join Patriots and President Trump.

BOSTON, MA – Here in Boston, there is a definitely a good vibe when it comes to talking sports. And really, why wouldn’t there be? Their beloved New England Patriots are stealing national headlines during the first month of the Major League Baseball season and the blood, guts and beards of the NHL playoffs.

First it was Aaron Hernandez… The jailed-for-murder New England tight end took his life, allegedly after taking the life of east one person. Sure, there are those that would rightfully argue that his death is not something we should waste any angst over; that he was a piece of [bleep] that at least had the decency to save tax-payers their hard-earned money for not having to house him in a cell for the rest of his life. But Jesus, this is one of those cases where feeling some empathy for a young guy that had everything but was so screwed up he couldn’t escape his demons and left a trail of broken lives in his meteoric downward spiral, is understandable. Hopefully, the next Ray Lewis and/or Ray Rice are paying close attention.

The Pats were also all over the news re their visit to President Trump’s White Housesans Tom Brady. There was a huge attempt to make this into a huge story. It’s not, folks. The comparison photos of the turnout next to the turnout by the team to Barack Obama’s White House are simply a matter of who is standing for one photo and who is not. The Patriots even Tweeted that as many as 40 staff members were seated during the photo this time around.


As for Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr., he bagged the visit to President Obama’s lawn party as well. Even CNN says this is non-story… at least in print, anyway. On TV they have air-time to fill, by discussing this as no big deal… for hours and hours. More importantly, Brady’s Mom is ill. The real story is that he’s prioritizing properly.

Finally, there’s no place like Fenway Park. Driving into this traffic-ravaged, yet still iconic and visit-worthy gem of Americana and its history, the lighted up ballpark is a sight/site to behold. And the Red Sox weren’t even home – they are in Charanta. It’s better than Wrigley, sorry Cubs fans – and by far our nation’s best sports venue. Dare you disagree?

That’s all for now, Please hurl your insults/plaudits/opinions below and check us out on Twitter @MeetTheMatts, @Matt_McCarthy00 & Instagram @MeetTheMatts and like our Facebook page, Meet The Matts. And back tomorrow for Junoir Blaber, Grinding Ax Walter Hynes or Cam James, none of which will ever get invited to the White House.

    Insults/plaudits/opinions eh? Go Rangers!!!
    I’d say go A’s but they’re tanking fast, I have a cold and well,I and am miserable today but no, I won’t be writing Yim 3:63 across my forehead or buying any sheets…you also posted a picture with The Orange Clown which is a big no-no when mailing it in ad just how many stamps did you use today?
    I will be rooting for CheesyBruins team though-let them win one more before their aspirations are crushed and the Cheeseman just hooks up a Maker’s Mark iv for the rest of the playoffs.
    Time for a hot beverage, a hot shower and something tide me over until the next Rangers game.

      You need to ad some hot soup to your list. Maybe watch some movies. Stripes was on yesterday. Good stuff. “The Aunt Jemima Treatment.”

      • jgclancy

        “Soup is good food” -alas that entails me getting dressed and go out.Not happening today.I am partial to minestrone btw
        I’m sure the Short One will say “No Soup for You” soon

        • AngryWard

          I like a good chicken noodle or pasta fagioli. Speaking of soup, I’m surprised Short Matt hasn’t taken a page out of Soupy Sales’ book and started asking kids to send him money out of Mommy’s purse and Daddy’s wallet. Now that was great TV.

          • jgclancy

            Maybe Fluffy will bring me nice matzoh ball soup.The Short One better have a plan to raise money after promises were made in regards to the Rangers! Maybe some meatball soup instead,Fluffy?

          • AngryWard

            Meatball soup? Now that’s Progress(o)!

          • jgclancy

            No canned soup allowed…too much Na -that’s sodium to y’all.I guess I’ll have to ” Make it myself”……..neverenough chickenin chicken noodle soup and I really don’t like slurping noodels much either..Hmmm..maybe a sandwich for Jose Reyes t-shirt night? which leads to the eternal question-is a hot dog a sandwich?

          • AngryWard

            A hot dog is not a sandwich, though my Dad used to make sandwiches out of leftover hot dogs… so I guess that counts.

          • jgclancy

            What about a cheeburger? MmmmI get In -N-Out again soon….Go A’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Cheesybruin

      Minestrone is a very underrated soup if homemade with real beef stock. Speaking of stock…the Bruins stock is way down Jim as I expect a lackluster effort tonight after holding their own in each of the one-goal games to this point. 5-1 Senators win.

      • jgclancy

        I keep checking the mailbox but no one has mailed me any soup….yet!—-maybe the fever is getting to me.
        Bruins gotta win so your Sunday has meaning–they need a fast goal to have a chance.not up 1-0 in first 10 minutes they’re doomed.

        • AngryWard

          Lil Angry A is with you, Jim. She has strep. She’s a real team player, that one.

          • jgclancy

            at least it’sthe weekend and li’l Angry A ca stay in…..maybe some soup?

  • AngryWard

    Prisons have set budgets. No effect on tax payers either way. And don’t tell me there weren’t fewer Patriots visiting 45 than there were for Obama. I don’t care who was sitting and/or standing. I assure you there were fewer. Finally, today’s “effort” reminds me that I have some parcels to drop at the post office.

  • Fluffy

    Apropos of nothing, anyone else as amused at the Mets’ horrible timing in having tonight’s free t-shirt give away be a Jose Reyes tee? Could this be as bad as disco demolition night?

    • Fluffy

      That’s as amused as I am, naturally.

      • AngryWard

        Yeah, with the Mets, it’s never good timing.

  • Junoir Blaber

    That photo is a joke because they use the 2 out of 3 quantifier and don’t show that for Obama 50 players made it. But whatever.

  • Junoir Blaber

    Somebody Tell Ax to keep insulting Rick Nash.

    • GrindingAx

      I will destroy him ….tune in tomorrow am!

  • GrindingAx

    Apparently, Mr. Hernandez was no longer a “Tight” End on the prison team. Too soon?

  • benwhit

    Fenway is a dump

    • Matt McCarthy

      So says you, @BenWhit8, whose #Yankees built tore down history for Jerry Jones’ baseball whore emporium: The House That Greed Built.

      • benwhit

        Jerry Jones? Maybe both things are true. Fenway is narrow and dirty and filled with horrible people.
