    Bronson gives Boston cheap pop, Reds fans get out pitchforks

    http://bostonist.com/2008/01/07/dear_boston_i_m.php

    Bronson rewrote some lyrics to a song while singing in Boston for some cheap pop [to steal a wrestling term] and I've seen folks in the Sun Deck up in arms.

    Move along folks, nothing to see here.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Dude totally modified the lyrics, making what one could view as either a nostalgic gesture toward the old crowd or, as we'd like to think, a plea for his old job!

    "I think I need to get back to Boston," he sings. (We couldn't hear the next couple of lines because some of the women of the crowd were freaking out) "I need to get out of Cincinnati, I think I need the Olde Towne to fill my heart again."
    Lame.

    Bronson has never been scrappy enough, what with his hippy hair and stuff!

    Meh. Much ado about nothing. Again.

    Unless you want to complain about his lyrical abilities. I'm on board with some lyrical Bronson-mocking if this is representative of his skills in that regard.

    This board could use some serious mocking, as it has been sorely lacking it for some time.

    Had he been singing those lyrics in Montana, I might think there is something there.

    He was playing to the crowd. As the OP said... "Nothing to see here"

    That's probably the right mindset to have, but do you really feel that way?

    I don't fault him for wanting to be in Boston than Cincy, but I do fault him for harping on it whenever he get's the opportunity to do so. Regardless of how the fans might feel, his teammates might have a problem with it.

    Perhaps Arroyo and Millar should rent an offseason pad somewhere around Yawkey Way to get this stuff out of their system.

    I'm with those of you who could care less where he WANTS to be, the fact is he signed a sweetheart deal with the team he WANTS to be with and they moved him to Cincy for a player that isn't even on their roster anymore...oh yeah, The Reds also paid him.

    Thinking a little further on this, it could be his way of taunting Theo...I mean, one of the most loved players by Red Sox fans doesn't even play for them.

    Just a thought.
