Let me take a shot.

Dear Clive,


I never weigh in on stuff unless it really pisses me off. Well, I’m pissed. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Turtle boy too. I case you missed it, Turtle boy IS a community. It’s a community of people who are sick and tired of being force fed specific ideas from the media. The difference here, is that we have a voice now. We’ve talked about all this stuff with our friends, co workers and families. We see the lunacy that society is presenting us with every day. We don’t like it. Same as you I guess. Granted we aren’t sitting under the banner of the once mighty Telegram, but that’s ok. I take issue with your column for a number of reasons. So lets break it down.

“Aidan Kearney, son of former School Committee member Mary Mullaney, is the face behind TurtleBoy Sports, a crass and craven local blog that peddles the cheap thrills that dehumanizing groups and individuals bring to some people.”

Ok, we’ve established that you think Kearney is Chief Turtle. First shot is dragging his mom into it. His mom. To what end? I learned in 6th grade that bringing mom into it is where you go when you can’t win fairly. You STARTED with that. This won’t go well.

Second, Although signs seem to point that Kearney is the guy, signs ALSO pointed to the cop in Ferguson being indicted on Civil Rights charges, the Patriots deflating footballs and Brian Williams being in an aircraft that came under fire in the mid east. How’s that working out. Unless you get video of this guy typing up a “hot sports take,” you have no CONCRETE evidence. Just some signs.


“Mr. Kearney’s Worcester address is the business address, so however he chooses to distance himself from the blog, he owns it legally and morally.:

Owning it and writing it are 2 different things. If calling out someone’s mom and making a guess at the owner of a blog without concrete evidence is responsible, moral, journalistic integrity, then I’ve been naïve.

” this guy, until recently a teacher at Shepherd Hill Regional High School, appears to have a fair share of enablers. So much so that he feels the blog is the true voice of the community, bragging of how warmly it and its cesspool of profanity-laden commentary are being received by judges, doctors, nurses, teachers, cops and firefighters.”

Fair point, Why would anyone who sells advertising on a site brag about who reads it?


As for being the voice of the community? He’s obviously the voice of an active, vocal part of it. Now I would think, as a journalist, that that would have been one hell of a story. “What makes Turtle Boy Sports tick?” Why are all these people that read and comment doing it? Pretty simple answer to me. They either agree with it, or they came to see the train wreck. Not unlike every other media outlet on in the US. Another story idea! “Is Turtle Boy Sports the future of internet media?”

“Last October, his alleged lewd and intimidating behavior toward a young woman at a Patriots-Buffalo Bills game in Buffalo triggered an investigation by school officials at Shepherd Hill. Mr. Kearney, however, chose to resign rather than face the music.”

Alleged. I love that word. It gives you the chance to make MORE implications that you have no evidence of against a person you really aren’t 100% sure is the right guy. Alleged. Protecting you from actually coming out and having to prove this guy did anything. Amazing how similar this is to, say, someone blogging anonymously to protect themselves about having to prove….never mind. Maybe the meme is right and you are Turtle boy.

I guess the Editors at the Telegram were desperate to try and grab some clicks, and with this article they sure succeeded. Unfortunately for them, they’re not endearing themselves to any of his readers, which doesn’t help your flagging numbers.  Lord knows I haven’t read that thing in years. I get my news as it happens on twitter.

I figure at some point either we find out that it was Kearney all along, or the real guy comes out and Kearney sues you and the paper for Libel. I really don’t care, but it would sure be fun to see the latter.

In the end, I never thought you would have entered into a war of words that you had no shot of competing in, never mind winning.  They baited you and baited you and you, and your editors, bit like hungry fish. Usually that ends poorly for the fish.

As all things I’m sure the Telegram powers expect this will die down by Saturday. I don’t think this is the place where things die down. That’s why I keep coming back.

    There is an easy solution to this bull shit! If you do not like Turtleboy DO NOT READ IT! How hard is it to figure that out? Duh, have you not figured out you are responsible for giving the blog views each time you click on it! You dumb asses!

    I do not always agree with the views yet, TB and company are downright honest! That is one of the many factors that I appreciate the most! Society tends to sugarcoat far too much bullshit while making excuses for people’s behaviors!

    It is NOT important to know the identity of TB and company! They are hiding behind the anonymity of their blog, yet those that have posted comments to this (myself included) or the trash at T&G are not? Hmmm, how the fuck does that make any sense!

    Bring on the shirts TB! I will proudly wear it!

    I agree. No, I don’t. Shut up, I don’t agree. I agree. I do not agree. We were never here to begin with, we were ALWAYS here; always will be. I disagree. Do I disagree? I disagree. I think I agree. I. I argyle. I gargle. I google. You agree. I arglebargle. Nonagreement. Shut up. Nine. Shut up. I agree.

    Shitting in a biscuit tin, the cat of impulchritude loses its lustre. We laminate our bananas, and we collect our goats, but none of us -NOT ONE- has ever asked the lampshade why it fails to entertain my chinchilla-listening machine. There are not goats. There are not gerbils, nor are there goats WITH goats, nor any other gerbil-centric, crowbar-flavored poodlywodgit fluppishly beeping in hat-shaped vats, no matter WHAT it says.

    Let me get this straight- turtleboy thinks he’s hot shit because he’s getting attention from the WOrcester Telegram. It’s in Worcester-a city so insignificant it doesnt even get it’s own metropoliatan area, yet it’s far away enough from Boston to not be part of their immediate metro area-in other words, the census bureau said “worcester? Fuck em. No one except the people who live there give shit about them. Scratch them in somewhere and be done with it”. And not to mention it’s a boring ass, crime ridden, white trash littered city that offerers little to no social, economic or cultural hope to its residents other than desperately trying to ride the coatails of 50 mile away Boston. AND it’s a newspaper giving them attention- a newspaper, the most dead form of media, giving them attention. Newspapers to media are CDs to music- sure, they exist but no one really uses them. And the best part is, while simultaneously boasting about the attention the newspaper is giving them, turelyboy sports makes fun of the telegram for being an insigificnant news paper. Thats like an 18 year old beating up a 12 year old, bragging about it, then telling other 18 year olds to stop bullying him cause hes only 10. Real nice work guys!

      Whoever runs this shit is deranged. This has more resemblance to a cult than a community, and is certainly not “the community”. Nothing about this blog is communal.

      what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

      Wow, another Boston resident ripping on the city of Worcester! Oh no! Worcester isn’t considered part of the Boston metro area… what are we gonna do?! Are you serious with that “insult”? Do you understand that a city like New York looks at Boston the same way that you look at Worcester? Do you understand how moronic you sound?

        1) not from Boston
        2) totally missed the point about the metro area thing
        3) hilariously ironic you miss the point so badly but I’m tho moron

        Great response otherwise though fella.

      Worcester might be a shitty city, but its our shitty city. We’re not Boston, and we’re certainly not New York. But that does not mean you get to take a shit on us. Especially you Mr. Commenting on a blog at 10:30 on a Wednesday night. When we want a dose of negativity we’ll give you a call. However until then maybe you should do us all a favor and focus on moving out of worcester.

        How ironic you don’t like other people taking a shit on your city when your a fan of blog which revolves around taking a shit on other cities- that recruitment for other writers was basically a “give me people who hated Worcester so much they had enough, left, and now hate where there are too. So we can together make fun of all of these other cities”. Hypocrisy abound! And commenting on a blog at 1030 on a weds- is that supposed to be offensive? You’re a fucking retard.

      Always have enjoyed my trips to the WAM, Mechanics Hall, and before it closed, Higgins. Still bummed about that. Glad that the WAM kept part of the collection.
