    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.

    Man it's been so peaceful around here since he's disappeared hasn't it?

    I think Ronnie Borges has just finished up his "roast beast" dinner in Hoo-ville, he has returned all of the gifts, the trees, the bulbs, the wreaths and I also think he gave back that crumb he stole from the mouse.

    You're a vile one, Ronnie B
    You have termites in your teeth, Ronnie B
    You have all the tender sweetness of seasick crocodile, Ronnie B
    Given the choice between you and the seasick crocodile, I think I would have to stuff you and Michael Felger in the cage with the seasick crocodile (and I hope he's hungry).

    Listen Ronnie B, Drew Bledsoe is not walking through that door. As bad as you want that to happen. I know, I know, BB traded the wrong guy to the Bills, I know, I understand. I know Ronnie, Tom Brady is a system QB and BB's drafts have been absolutely abysmal, I know. Do you have anything else for us?

    It's a good thing Borges disappeared when he did - imagine how annoying he would've been throughout spygate.

    Ron is still on 7 Sports Extra intermittently, but sitting opposite Freddy aside from the occasional veiled barb he is relatively manageable... Fred seems to view him with an odd combination of professional (football related) contempt and personal (for a fellow thoughtless shoot from the hip know it all) compassion...

    Not sure who does his makeup but the lip tint makes him look like he's pre embalmed. They oddly refer to him as "Ron Borges from HBO...", whatever that is supposed to represent - like he's stepped up in the world :rolleyes:.

    Probably referring to his Def Jam comedy special.
