Ever since longtime Detroit sports talk radio update guy Matt Dery left 97.1 to become a host of his own show on the ratings disaster known as Detroit Sports 105.1, we have had a running bit on Twitter regarding his constant flow of photographs with attractive women.
It seemed to have started when the desperate sports talk station started running a totally hackneyed weekly gimmick during football season where some cute local “celebrity” female would come into the studio to make football selections.
I guess it was either this cliched bit or a weekly “What’s Your Favorite Hamburger Joint in Detroit?” segment and extremely creepy 105.1 producer Tom Mazawey must have figured having women come in to make picks would somehow arouse him. Not that the man who wants to “unwind your kids” for a fee has never ogled a Red Coat Tavern cheeseburger.
(This Week’s DSR Podcast)
Anyway, whenever Dery or the personal concierge Mazawey would Tweet out these douchey photos of “The Deez” with one of his special lady friends, I would ReTweet with the tagline of “Poor Heather.”
Heather being Dery’s second wife (pictured above) after he divorced his first bride, Lisa.
I never gave much thought to the “Poor Heather” Tweets until recently when this bizarre behavior became a topic of conversation on the DSR Forums and the sheer volume of these Dery pics was exposed.
Because, here’s the thing …… there is NO WAY any of these women give a shit about getting a picture with MATT DERY. He’s a nobody they’ve never heard of – and they SHOULDN’T know who he is. So he, or someone on his behalf, is initiating these poses for photos. Which is so fucking pathetic.
I mean, we are talking about an extremely LOW-rated sports talk show host, not Brad Pitt or Benedict Cumberpatch here. This isn’t the Howard Stern show where “broads” like Jillian Barberie are dying for a photo-op on the King of All Media’s sofa.
No. THIS IS MATT DERY, people!!!!
And if you think I am overreacting to the number of these photos Dery has taken with random waitresses, “Ticket Girls” and local Q-List media members, I am about to inundate you with just SOME of the snapshots we found on social media of this slimy behavior.
I mean, what is with that fake, cheesy smile?!?!!??!
Matt Dery is the “Marlins Man” of Twin Peaks, The Tilted Kilt and Tito’s Vodka. We’re only missing Dery photographed with a Hooters waitress. Oh wait, I found one ……
After this fairly tame and most tongue-in-cheek Thanksgiving Day blog was posted, one of Dery’s friends, Craig Feldhandler, decided to contact me through a private Facebook message and call me a “pussy” and a “girl.”
Here is the screen-shot evidence of that exchange …
I do have to hand it to Feldhandler, though. At least he defended his friend. Unlike when Dery refused to tell Terry Foster that I was not a racist when the five-tool imbecile called me one on Twitter a few years ago.
Ya know, for making Jewish jokes about Michael Rosenberg. When I am Jewish.
