Mailbag Friday, 5/13

Good morning to all our raffish readers and welcome to another edition of Pinhead Nation's "Mailbag Friday". As you know, on Fridays we take a few minutes out of our productive day to delve into your aborted minds and answer some of your questions. If you have a burning question that you would like someone clearly better than you to answer, drop us an email at Because of volume, we can't always answer every email, but if you menial inquiry piques our interest, you may have your existence justified by receiving an answer from your superiors. Without further adieu, here is this week's mailbag.

Q - Bob H (location N/A). Hi guys, what do you think of (former Merrimack hockey coach) Chris Serino leaving the AD position of a divison II NCAA school (with an almost D-1 hockey team) to become the AD at Malden Catholic High School?

Having survived two of life's greatest challenges, cancer and coaching at Merrimack College, Chris Serino has finally received a break by landing a job at Malden Catholic High School.

A - Good morning, Bob. Nice to hear from a fellow collar-up intellectual, hope all is well. To answer your question, it makes sense to your superiors that Serino take that job, it's clearly a promotion. Remember, former Kenmore State "graduate" Keith Tkachuk is a Malden Catholic alum, and since most of his Merrimack players couldn't play at Boston College High School let alone Boston College, he finally gets a chance to coach quality athletes. Unfortunately for the rubes who are considering attending Malden Catholic, the cost to employ Serino means that annual tuition will be raised from $1,100 annually to just over $8500. I can't help wondering how a 20-something Canadian thug can raise those kind of funds to play for Chris Serino.

Q - Mike H (Danbury, CT). I read your article on "Grand Theft Auto: UConn" and was pretty amused by it. I live in Connecticut, but hate all things UConn as I am a URI graduate. Did you know that a 55 year old woman was hit by one of those UConn thugs firing that pellet gun?

A - Mike, we did notice that there was a sad victim in the UConn story, but felt that in the grand scheme of things, a windshield was worth more than the existence of a 55 year-old Connecticut resident. That windshield was probably made outside of Connecticut and didn't ask to be located in such a ramshackled state.

The value of a woman from Connecticut is far outweighed by the price of a quality windshield.

Q - Paul S (Bakersfield, CA). Hi Pinhead Nation. Who do you like in the NBA playoffs?

A - The NBA playoffs? Surely, you are kidding. If we wanted to watch a bunch of street thugs kill eachother for sport, we'd take the limo down to Northeastern University after Boston's next sports championship. Considering most of today's NBA are from overseas, attendance at an NBA game would be the equivilent of attendance a Boston University fraternity party. Take our advice, you can't maintain 'collar-up' status and consider yourself a hardcore NBA fan. Make you choice.

Well, that's going to do it for this week's mailbag. The warm weather appears to have finally arrived, so to my fellow collar-ups, finish getting your yachts sea-ready and stock up on the quality libations of your choice.

Collar Up.

Hello Pinheads, I've become a loyal reader to your blog since January and I wanted to say how much I enjoy reading it. A buddy of mine forwarded me the link to your site and have been hooked ever since.

I dont think I've ever seen a combination of really, really good writing and the ability to really "take a shot" at someone like you guys do. It's quite something.

You wrote one a few weeks ago about Poker that almost made me piss myself. I had my wife read it and she noted how well you write and at the same time completely mock someone. I think she said it was like "being insulted by Shakespeare" or something. Keep up the good work and I love the pics!
