Bill Simmons used to be the Boston Sports Guy, until he left Boston and became The Sports Guy for ESPN Magazine. Now he's all left coast and writing for Jimmy Kimmel. He still writes for ESPN, and his most recent column on the web had me laughing. Especially this part where he talks about The Real World Paris and Project Greenlight in the same sentence.
What do you think is the funniest word to say with a Boston accent? I used to think it was "Nomar." But now I think it's "c-h-a-r-g-e." Just say it out loud. "Chahhhge." Add an "-ed" at the end for extra effect. "Chahhhged." Wow, that's good. -- Jeff Kearney, MAvia [ asmitty ]
I vote for "liquor." When the Massachusetts guy said, "Who drank my lick-ahh?" on "Real World: Paris" last week, that was the highlight of my summer that didn't involve Chris Moore obliterating a chair with the extra 30 pounds he gained since last summer on "Project Greenlight."
