On the same night ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary about the 2004 Boston Red Sox aired, their biggest resident Red Sox fan began an internet brush fire.
Via his Twitter account, Bill Simmons (a lifelong Patriots fan) accidentally tweeted an inquiry about a trade rumor regarding Randy Moss heading from New England to his former employer, the Minnesota Vikings.
Suffice to say, the rumor already hit the Jay Glazer reporting zone as he stated a deal was close but “can’t be done.”
A snag in the proceedings is likely to revolve around a contract extension for Moss, whose deal is up at the end of the season.
Also, Glazer tweeted about reports circulating in Boston that Bill Belichick and Moss got into a “verbal dust-up” on Tuesday.
Well, 24 hours after their best win of the season, the Patriots have a bye week and a mess on their hands.
By the way, this would make it another go-around for the Favre/Moss connection, which has endured several misses over the past three years.
Once again, it all circles back to #4.
