(with apologies to both Carl Everett and P.J. Carlesimo)

When describing the well-heeled crowds populating Fenway Park’s tony EMC Club yesterday, The Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy made certain to use the phrase, “pardon me, could you pass the Grey Poupon?”

According to the research-crazed crew at Boston Sports Media.com, Shaughnessy has recycled said gag no fewer than 7 times since 2002.
