Al Strachan Is A Freeloader!

February 1st, 2009 | by torontosportsmedia

Interesting story on the whole pansification thing in Saturday’s globe. I am not getting in to the issue. However, Christie Blatchford, perhaps the best writer the Globe has, has the quote

Al Strachan- the Freeloader

Al Strachan- the Freeloader

“I don’t know Mr. Milbury from Adam (and if I do know him at all, then it would be because I’d have seen him, in Adam’s au naturel state, in the Boston Bruins’ dressing room when I was covering the NHL; if only I hadn’t always removed my glasses in those circumstances so as to make myself more comfortable I would have more accurate memories), and hold no particular brief for him, except that I think he’s good on the tube and is articulate and often funny. My only connection to the show is that my freeloading sportswriter boarder, Al Strachan, is, like Mr. Milbury, a regular.”

No comments necessary, the quote says it all.

    For such an amazing blog, you have interesting taste when it comes to writers. I mean, Blatchford? Really? Dare I ask for your take on DiManno?

      Blatchford is a great reporter. She doesn’t do sports. I didn’t comment on her take on the pansy thing. I just love what she called Al. As for Rosie D. She is BRUTAL

    I believe she’s alluding to the fact Strachan lives with her.
