    Let's see if any "gets" the seemingly innocuous first line of today's Bostonsportsmedia.com report:

    http://www.bostonsportsmedia.com/

    "Yesterday was a day for the Patriots."

    I think you're reading into it too much...

    All I think it means is that it was a good day for the team?

    As I wrote - it's a SEEMMINGLY innoccuous line - but there's a context to it - and a target for it.

    I feel like Chris Slade or a golf ball or NEM.

    I hate intelligent life.

    Because the Boston media paid some attention to the Patriots instead of the Sox???

    OK, here's a hint (because Patsacolachick is getting warm):

    The line is a personal dig at someone.

    "Surprise" doesn't appear in the line I'm specifying.

    The line is "Yesterday was a day for the Patriots".

    OK, give it up now! I need to get in the car for 7 hours and am curious about this. Don't make a brother wait.

    This must be a real inside joke. It is so far inside nobody gets it.

    OK, everybody who wrote (a lot of us from here did) Boston Globe Sports Editor Joe Sullivan last year complaining about their ignoring the Patriots got this very infamous boilerplate retort from Mr. Sullivan:
    ________

    I'm sorry we disappointed you. The Patriots didn't play yesterday (Sunday), it was a day for the Red Sox and the Saints plus the US Open. If you think the Pro Jo and Herald has more coverage on the Patriots, you're mistaken. We've have (sic) many more pages than either paper since training camp opened in August. - Joe Sullivan, Boston Globe Sports Editor, via email to reader, 09/12/05
    _________

    To the many of us who received this e-mail (and it is still publicized on bsmw.com in its rotating infamous quotes box on the upper left side) the "Yesterday was a day for the Red Sox...." line became sort of the touchstone quote for the Boston Globe's organizational arrogance against the Patriots (and FOR the baseball team of which it's out of town parent is a 17% owner).

    When Bruce Allen led off today with "Yesterday was a day for the Patriots", it was a not-so-subtle media dig at the Globe.

    BTW, I still feel a pit in my stomach when I remember the day that Mike Reiss crossed over to work for Darth Vader.

    Yesterday, all Miami's fantasies were swept away.
    Rodney's back and there's Hell to pay.
    Football coverage won the day.
    Oh, I believe in the Belichick way.

    Yesterday, Globe sports was just a bird cage page.
    Solomon's going and Mike Reiss is center stage.
    Despite themselves the Globe will be the rage.
    Oh, I believe in the Belichick way.

    Why Borges had to blow, I don't know, he's cursed that way.
    He wanted Terrel to play, how he longs for an Al Davis day.

    Yesterday, Felger's tirade hit a Borges' note.
    But Rodney's back and that's all she wrote.
    Today it's Pats' Fans who get to gloat.
    Oh, I believe in the Belichick way.

    H'mm mmm mmm mm, Belichick way.

    Disable Jersey

    Then there were those who believed he'd be on PUP well into the season (he knows who you are, too)." Dan Pires, Standard-Times

    OK! Which one of you rat bastards gave Rodney my name?
