The big news today in Boston? Clay Buchholz went to a party at Foxwoods last night after being recently released from Mass. General where he was battling esophagitis. What’s the big issue? Buchholz is on the 15-day DL and the Sox are in Seattle. Boston media is obviously having a slow week because this is dominating sports talk & is now leaking over into the newspapers.
So who ratted him out? Scott friggin’ Zola, a guy who used to be a Patriots backup QB and now works on the sports talk radio circuit.
Look, unless Buchholz was getting couch dances from Foxwoods chicks, this is a non-story. A guy has to get out of the house and a pool party doesn’t mean anything.
So the guy got out of the hospital and went 90 miles south. Big friggin’ deal.
“They were trying to downplay it, but when you’re lying in an ICU, where I’m from, it usually means that stuff’s not going really well. Once I got out of there, the doctors were pretty up-front about it, saying it wasn’t really life-threatening at this point. They just had me in there to make sure that I wasn’t really losing any more blood.”
Wasn’t losing any more blood? Wait, what?
Hell yes I’d head straight to a pool party. YOLO.
