Mike Violette on Sports January 30

About This Project

You need not talk very long on the radio to sometimes foster fury. Last Saturday, a talk show host on Boston’s all-sports WEEI, musing on a new documentary about Tom Brady, made a quick reference to a scene showing Brady in his kitchen with his five year-old daughter, who was referred to by the host as “an annoying little pissant.”

Brady didn’t like it, and didn’t hesitate to let the world know it in the course of his regular Monday morning appearance on the same station–an appearance that he chose to abruptly end after only about two minutes.

Mike Violette sized up the furor on the Tuesday WCME Midcoast Morning Buzz.
