Yes, it's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year once again--the time of year where I have the enviable dilemma of having to figure out how to keep up with the fire-hose of Pats / Sox action, 24/7.
So I want to take this opportunity to reiterate here (as I already have elsewhere), that I love Matt Light (LT/LG) more and more with each passing season. It was clear from early on that Matt Light was a colorful guy--witness his exit, holding the Lombardi Trophy, from the team bus in 2003 in a fuzzy white bathrobe, or the mighty beards and hairdos that have earned him so much attention over the years.
But what really cemented him as one of my favorite players has been his regular appearances on the morning show I listen to on WAAF. He has a sharp wit and a hysterical, sometimes self-deprecating sense of humor, but best of all, he’s also multitalented. So far he’s limited to one publicly performed musical work, but it is a doozy. It’s called “The Mustache Song” and you can listen to it here.
Just so I'm sure that I'm continuing to corner the market on all Matt Light coverage, I want to also mention that this week, it has come to my attention that the same morning show has once again produced some choice Matt-Light-related content, featuring the show's producer, a total miscreant dubbed "Spaz", being thrown into a filthy golf course pond by Light and linemate Stephen Neal:
It should also be noted that Spaz, not having learned his lesson, is challenging Light to a skeet-shooting contest also put on by the radio station tomorrow. "If" he loses, he will have to suit up and face Light from a four-point stance.
This morning Spaz drew the ire of both Light (who was the guest on the show) and callers by insisting that he has a chance. Meanwhile, his boss and the host of the show, Greg Hill, has been trying to impress upon him the nature of the injuries he's facing with this little stunt. "You do know there's a good possibility you'll end up unconscious."
To which Spaz responded by telling Hill and everyone listening that Matt is a big tub of lard who could barely wrestle a 5' 4" 180-pound guy into a pond. Frankly I think Spaz will be lucky not to be killed. And I can't wait to see that video, either.
