I agree. Feller was a mainstay at Fenway.

His signature call was: “Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to Fenway Park.” If interested you can sign Titus’ petition at www.ipetitions.com/petition/shermfeller/.

Call Welker a motormouth

We all knew Wes Welker was fast. At least his legs. We didn’t know his lips moved as fast as they’ve moved the last few months.

Is there an interview the former Patriots wide receiver won’t do?

I guess that’s a good thing, at least for our business, now that the Denver Broncos’ slot receiver seems to be a quote machine since leaving New England this winter.

He even said he was tired of “not be able to speak” while with the Patriots.

Welker has become a chatterbox since becoming a Bronco. He’s been on ESPN, the NFL Network and he’s done several one-on-one interviews with much of the Denver media. Most recently he did a Q&A on an ESPN college football blog about his former teammate and now coach at Texas Tech, Kliff Klingsbury, whom the Patriots drafted in the sixth round in 2003.

Sherman set up to fail

The pressure is on Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who like baseball’s Ryan Braun had his failed PED (performance enhancing drug) test overturned.

He has signed on a periodic contributor to Peter King’s new website (along with Sports Illustrated).

In his first column this week he explained his “verbal war” with Tom Brady last year saying Brady was upset with some trash-talking and told one of the Seahawks defensive backs to come find him after the Patriots win the game.

Well, the Pats lost and Sherman, who only heard about Brady’s comments, chased Brady down and got pretty nasty afterward yelling at Brady.
