It’s Good To Live In A Two-Daily Town (Albert Haynesworth Edition)

Compare and contrast in clear idiomatic English:

Boston Herald Inside Track item on freshly minted New England Patriot Albert Haynesworth:

NBC football analyst Cris Collinsworth likens the New England Patriots [team stats]’ re-education of new tackle and NFL badboy Albert Haynesworth to “The Taming of the Shrew!”

The “Sunday Night Football” host, during a chat with TV critics in La-La the other day, said Fat Albert, who bears little resemblance to Shakespeare’s disobedient wife, Katherina, is an “interesting character” and a “unique talent” who, he believes, will fall in line with the Belichick Drill.

“When I was a kid there was a play called ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ that I had to watch,” he said. “This will be a little bit of ‘Taming of the Shrew.’ Let’s see how it works out.”

There’s small choice in rotten apples, Cris …

Boston Globe columnist Joan Vennochi’s piece on Albert Haynesworth:

Patriots’ bad call

Is the team missing Myra Kraft’s moral compass?

IT DIDN’T take long for the New England Patriots to walk away from Myra Kraft’s legacy.

The wife of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft – who died of cancer on July 20 – embraced a quaint idea. She believed that character, integrity, and respect for women are more important than yards gained on a football field.

Back in 1996, Myra Kraft’s values led her husband to reverse a decision to draft a University of Nebraska lineman who had been convicted of sexual assault. At the time, the Patriots’ change of heart regarding Christian Peter sent a strong message about what mattered to the organization.

Fast forward to 2011. In the same month that Myra Kraft was lovingly memorialized by family, friends, and assorted Patriots, Coach Bill Belichick began the process of acquiring Albert Haynesworth, a player with an upcoming trial date for a misdemeanor sexual assault charge. That allegation is just the tip of a very large and ugly iceberg.

Much uglier in the Globe, as it turns out.
