A few people messaged us today about an article that old man Carlo Baldino published in the Telegram bashing Turtleboy Sports. Basically he did what Clive did – blame our marketing consultant for writing all the blogs on here. We didn’t pursue it because Old Man Baldino and Turtleboy are not on the same level. Like, if I wanted to start a rivalry with some dooshnozzle like Perez Hilton I wouldn’t expect him to recognize our existence. Why would he? We have more to gain from that. Same shit here. No one gives a shit that Old Man Baldino recently finally put his typewriter and abacus aside and figured out how to write a blog.


But the blog the Telegram put out today was nothing less than the ramblings of a senile old man who forgot to take his pills. Ya see, this is the same man who is married to Joyce McNickles – the mastermind behind Turtleboy Boycott 2015. I’m assuming his trophy wife told him that her attempt to be Worcester’s Rosa Parks was backfiring. So she sat there and told Carlo what to type.

Among the several things he did was make up a story about someone’s mother giving birth to 12 kids and posting pictures of people’s wives. This happened in the Worcester Telegram and Gazette – a “real” actual newspaper. 

But guess what? The story got pulled!! Ya got that? Pulled. That’s NEVER happened before at the Telegram. Do you realize how bad an article it has to be for the Telegram to pull it down??!! Do you realize just how TERRIBLE, loathsome, and offensive you have to be for that to happen? Carlo crossed the line that has never been crossed before. This is the face of the protesters.


Then he went on to say that Turtleboy supporters are “mostly white male tea-party conservatives who don’t believe in climate change, women’s rights, the existence of racism, gay marriage, etc. They’re typical Republican conservatives.”

As you know, we don’t do politics here, but if I had to poll our audience, I’d say it’s like 60% conservatives. But we got tons of liberals on here. I like liberals. They’re fun because they like to bend the rules. But no one likes people like Baldino and his trophy wife, who are liberal for all the wrong reasons. They use liberalism as an excuse to take offense to everything and shit on the police. That’s not what being liberal is about. Being liberal is about smoking pot, pounding beers, making out, accepting people who are different from you, and not waking up full of shame in the morning.

But is there any truth to this nonsensical rambling? Are you people a bunch of honky old tea party dudes who don’t believe in the existence of racism? Let’s take a look at our audience from Google Analytics:

Wait, 47% of our readers are female?? How can that be?? But, but, but…Turtleboy is SEXIST!!!

But surely you MUST be really OLD, since you’re all a bunch of conservative tea party windbags:

Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 9.29.17 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 9.29.29 PM

Oh wait, you mean Carlo is the only person reading this who’s cashing social security checks? You mean over 77% of you people are between the ages of 18-44? That can’t be!!!

He also said this about you people: “Turtleboy’s use of language is viewed by his ideological supporters as “the truth” and “his opinion,” and “not racist,” but it’s offensive to many women and people of color, and they’re not going to sit back and let him continue what they perceive as racist, sexist, insulting, vitriolic rants. So they’re taking action.”

Yea, don’t you people get it? It’s not the truth. It can’t be the truth. It’s just GOTTA be racist. If it’s not then what are people like Old Balls Baldino and his trophy wife Joyce supposed to do? What else can he possibly write about? Do you wanna hear him talk about that time him and his friends shot marbles outside the Woolworth’s before going inside for some salt water taffy?


Then there was this gem:

“He has reason to worry—two sponsors dropped out within hours of being contacted.”

Whatever makes you sleep at night ya silly old man. The truth of the matter is one of our sponsors did express concern because they had no clue who Joyce McNickles was when she began the email harassment campaign. So we sent them this:

11072361_1556345507982060_497162947_n (1)

That’s when they realized they were dealing with a psychopath who thinks it’s OK for hippies to chain themselves to barrels on a highway. Naturally they stopped taking her seriously after reading that she said that if people in ambulances “are inconvenienced by protests….so be it…I say keep on marching.” 

Hey Howard Beale, I understand that you’re mad as hell right now, but at least if you’re gonna write a blog make sure you have SOMETHING in there that’s remotely close to being truthful. Instead he threw around more hilarious anecdotes like this:

“not only will his advertisers lose customers of color, they’ll also lose customers who are white allies. You know, the people who are attacked as “wiggers,” “wannabes,” and “traitors to their race” and are “ashamed to be white.”

Yea, we use the phrase “traitors to their race” pretty frequently hear at Turtleboy Sports. I can’t find any, but I’m sure they DEFINITELY exist. Seriously, does this guy want a red badge of courage for marrying an angry African-American woman? Like, he WANTS us to call him a traitor to the race for marrying someone who isn’t white, right? Dude, it’s 2015. No one gives a shit if you married a black woman. This isn’t like your old high school days at Commerce High. You’re not a traitor the white race. You’re just an embarrassment to the human race.


“Turtleboy claims the businesses that support his blog are doing great, but he’s delusional if he thinks he has anything to do with their success.”

You’re right Carlo, the writers had very little to do with it. We just provided the medium for the counter-boycott. The people who actually went to those places and flooded them with new customers are the ones who made the real difference. And it’s all because of your lovely wife Joyce. She CREATED all that business that didn’t exist. Which is ironically the exact opposite of what a boycott is intended to do. Oh yea, and we’ve apparently picked up some new advertisers for April since your little charade began. Thanks Carlo!!

The bottom line is it’s past your bed time old man. Next time when you get the 4 o’clock early bird special, just take your medicine afterwards and call it a night. Be humbled that we even recognized your existence. It’s easily the highlight of your pathetic, sad career.

    Baldino is only looking for attention, like a spoiled child. I’d hate to see Turtleboy’s blog polluted by his presence…although I do think he may already be here.

    I propose an idea: give Carlo a recurring guest column on TBS. one stipulation is that he has to write follow up columns that respond to the highest rated commenters. Let the hilarity ensue.

    I’d suggest Clive McFarland, but he actually has a paying job already so he wouldn’t touch it.

    “not only will his advertisers lose customers of color, they’ll also lose customers who are white allies.”

    Is this guy for real? I’m so sick of the “person of color” phrase….the only people making this a “race” issue is Joyce & Company, Clive McFraud & Baldino.

    Please use facts to back up denying accusations people have of you

      I’m an advertiser on TBS and we didn’t cancel our ad with them, even though Joyce & Company called my business saying TBS was racist & that she was boycotting us. Well, it’s pretty hard to boycott a place you’ve never been in! This woman is delusional and needs to stop trying to ruin these local businesses because of where they choose to run an ad. I’d much rather advertise on TBS, which has tons of followers, than on the T&G who is losing customers faster than I can type this message because of people like Clive & Baldino.
      Yet there was no mention of boycotting the T&G after Dianne Williamson’s column about the guy who was murdered…that column was the epitome of racist!!!! But Joyce & Company won’t mention anything about that….

      Hey True, it’s up to the accuser “Race Bait Baldino” to prove the spinsters are gone. Think about it. He stated it, ask him to back it up. Ohh wait, Carlo “I wish black people would accept me as black” Baldino doesn’t back up any of his garbage. Just like how he never reads comments yet writes blogs quoting comments of users. The guy is showing signs of Alzheimer’s. he needs to see a Dr.

      Interesting. 20 negative “votes” 0 positive. Jus like what you get on your blog Baldino- oops, I mean True Worcester.

      My proof is the ads you still see on this blog.

    “not only will his advertisers lose customers of color, they’ll also lose customers who are white allies.”

    Lose customers who are “white allies”? Now THAT is offensive. Clearly Old Man Baldino is assuming that most whites are racist, sexist, and homophobic and have to choose not to be by being an ally to whatever cause people are trying further, which couldn’t be further from the truth. What kind of reality is this guy living in? Oh yeah, Sutton. Spare me that BS Baldie…

    I think any woman, gay or not, has the right to believe in climate change.

    Turtle Boy just chewed you up and spit you out Baldino(aka Timass, Q2.1, Marvin Cosgrove, Fast eddie ) Is there no town you won’t travel to, to use their libraries, habitually changing your screen name, as to not be detected as the forever banned demented KO Baldino? You’re all washed up old man. Time to reserve a room at Shady Pines, where you can sit in your own bodily fluids and waste away. Too bad you don’t have the balls to respond, or are you banned from here as well? You are a pathetic piece of excrement.

    Hey Carlo, I hate to break it to you, but I’m pretty much the polar opposite of what you just described TB’s readers as.

    I loathe the Tea Party.
    I’m a sensible feminist (as opposed to the radfems who want to kill all men).
    I know there’s climate change.
    I think anyone should be able to marry anyone they want (within reason – no marrying your 11 year old sister).
    I don’t care what bathroom transgender people use, as long as they don’t peek while I’m taking a dump and they don’t piss on the seat. And motherfucker… they don’t throw the toilet paper on the floor. I hate that…

    In short, I’m fiscally conservative but socially liberal. I think Darren Wilson probably should have been indicted. But I’m not going to stand in the middle of Kelley Square gawking at Sonya’s ass. I’m going to go to work like a productive member of society.

    Where are these people getting that the blogs are racist and sexist? I think I may have ideas of where they get these ideas in their head, but I strongly disagree with them, dis agree with what those who have made accusations have used as proof, and feel they are reaching to find things that aren’t there. As far as these blogs being offensive to people of color, I’m a person of color and I haven’t been offended by anything within these blogs, not once. I may have disagreed with something, but to the point of that disagreement offending me in any way. Anyway, these people need to seriously get over themselves.

    Go away asshole and stop poking the bear…..this could have been a lot worse.

    Baldino is a blogger. That means he doesn’t get paid to write for the Telegram. McFarlane is a columnist, so he does get paid by the Telegram. Most of the bloggers on the Telegram, Baldino in particular, are on an ego trip. A couple are using blogging as a form of therapy, and only one or two are providing useful information. They all may or may not know that they are being used. There have been intelligent bloggers in the past, but it seems they are no longer blogging on the paper. That just proves they’re more intelligent than most of those who remain.

    Baldino has the right to his opinions, erroneous as they may be, but the rest of us have the right to ignore him. Periodically people comment on other unrelated articles about Baldino, and others urge people not to read or comment on his blog. Some people think he’s exceeding his allowed number of screen names, as well. I no longer read his blog, and I urge others to do the same. All he wants is attention, like a spoiled child.
