The NFL’s conference championships, Kobe’s unconscious display against the Raptors, the return of Theo Epstein and acquisition of Coco Crisp, the Hornets versus the Celtics tonigh, Bruins versus the Capitals…all quality stories for WEEI’s early afternoon pair of Michael Holly and Dale Arnold to discuss with their erudite callers.

But compared to Holly’s blow-by-blow account of what happened on last night’s “Desperate Housewives”, all of the above are secondary concerns. Not since the Hindenburg disaster has the wireless been treated to such emotional reporting.
