Weird, so you mean the glory days for his show coincided with the Patriots dynasty and the 03/04 Red Sox playoff runs and zero competition in the marketplace?

Annnnnnd maybe their success as a station was little reflection of the on-air talent and much more a perfect storm of ideal conditions for a radio station to thrive.

I bet there is no way in hell the station lets Ordway back on the air tomorrow if he's airing out dirty laundry on-air today.

They'll just use Dale on non-Bruins days (REUNION TIME!), and the dreadful Minihane for the rest to take his place.

I'll never understand the absolute arrogance a lot of these hosts displayed in regards to hockey, especially before the Bruins return to glory. Hockey has always been the #1 sport in this town at the youth level, and Bruins fans are without question the most devoted to their team. How they all could have been so obtuse and completely out of touch is beyond me.

they were out of touch- I love the Bruins obviously and my folks had season tickets back in the early 50's....but we have Patriots seats, and I love the Red Sox as well.

I'm a complete sports fan who follows all these teams, goes to a lot of games, and KNEW the Bruins were the sleeping Giant. People loved the Bruins and hockey just not Jacobs and the way they were being run. Once that changed the fans came back new ones showed up and WEEI had thousands of fans who had every reason with the Sports HUB around to avoid their product.

I think Ordway is talented and a great interviewer but he was pretty arogant during the good days and now he's singing a differnent tune- to be honest Ordway got what he deserved to me.

Yeah, I'm 26 now and ended up playing a couple years of pro baseball after college but my entire life has been hockey, I was just better at baseball. I root for the other sports teams but don't live and die with them, and to be perfectly honest my entire youth was spent in hockey rinks, in parking lots playing street hockey, etc. Hockey is "it" in this area, the only difference being the Bruins weren't because of Jacobs for a long time. For the local media and radio shows to not realize how strong the passion for hockey is in this town is just really poor foresight.

So he announced he sucks at life, knows zero about any sport, and only condescends to people to make up for his shortcomings and insecurities?

Tears of joy most likely, because he'll finally be able to make a salient point without that blowhard talking over him...

Bye Bye Boredway. Guys like him, and the owner, are the reason this radio station is garbage. Guys like Ordway treated the city like a 3 sport town (MLB,NFL,NBA) for the longest time, and now with the resurgence of the Bruins and timely creation of Sportshub, these hacks are feeling it.

I listened to WEEI occassionally, but refused to again after a few things.

One being calling in about the Hossa rumors when he was with Atlanta. Boston would have had to give up Kessel +, and Hossa said he didn't want to sign for Boston at regular price (reports were he would have wanted 10 mil plus). Ordway laughed it off saying pay him that much trade Kessel, throw in an extra chip like "Kraychee" if you have to . . .

I think the whole Kessel thing worked out, not pursuing, eh Glenn?

Good riddance and good bye

He's basically the same as the guy on 98.5 at nights and the guy on with brain-dead Merloni.

Well that's disappointing. At least Minihame didn't get the job.

One of those guys who throws on a "radio voice," talks a lot but really doesn't say anything?

Good on ya Mazz for finally discovering that Nash is a beast. At least he's honest enough to admit he had no clue about him before this season.
