One of the many things we have at this time of year for which to be thankful: http://www.bostonsportsmedia.com/ (Important: the following includes actual links to Borges' classic misinformation - go to the above link if you want to see the actual works of Borges' art) 2) Ron Borges is suspended by Globe for plagiarism and then "retires." In March, Borges appeared to be in top form, throwing a wet blanket on the Patriots signing of free-agent Adalius Thomas. A day earlier on MSNBC, Borges had placed Thomas at the top of his list of free agents that represented the "best value." However, the same day as the Thomas article in the Globe, Borges also complied the NFL notes for the Sunday Globe, a piece which "contained verbatim passages" from a story previously written by Mike Sando of The News Tribune of Tacoma. The next day, the Globe announced that Borges had been suspended for two months for plagiarism. (Dan Kennedy speculated that Borges might quit over the scandal, a prediction that proved accurate.) Borges served his suspension, and returned to the Globe on May 13th, with a article on Randy Moss - a ripjob which included this priceless quote from former Raiders Offensive Coordinator turned Bed and Breakfast operator Tom Walsh - "Randy Moss is a player whose skills are diminishing, and he's in denial of those eroding skills." That proved to be the last article that Borges wrote for the Globe, as that Friday evening, the paper announced cryptically that Borges had "retired" from the Globe. Since that time, Borges has made a few radio appearances, proclaiming that he got "screwed" in this episode and hinting at pending legal action on his part. He continues his occasional work for Pro Football Weekly, has written articles for the Kansas City Chiefs official team website, and become an occasional blogger. He's not missed.
