E"Rex"tile Dysfunction

  It’s good to be back. Sorry for the long lay-off between blogs. Let me start by congratulating Rex Ryan and his stout defense for holding the Patriots to 40 points today. Outstanding work. Ryan had two choices this week when getting his team prepared for the Patriots. Choice #1 was to talk trash and [...]

Big Bad Bruins Management

I made my feelings clear in my June 1st blog regarding the direction of the Bruins and the hiring of Don Sweeney. However, in my wildest dreams I couldn’t have anticipated the complete bungling of the organization after the two trades were made this week and the approach to the NHL draft. As for the [...]

A Royal Flush

Kudos to MLB for once again successfully proving that the all-star ballot selection process is about as antiquated and inefficient as the electoral college system. Looking forward to seeing George Brett man third base, Bret Saberhagen start and Dan Quisenberry close out the all-star game. Maybe Whitey Herzog and the late Dick Howser can co-manage [...]

The King was no Warrior

In light of LeBron James losing his fourth NBA championship, I thought it would be appropriate to address the ongoing debate of Michael Jordan versus King James once and for all. This debate is reminiscent of the same one with Wilt Chamberlain versus Bill Russell. They both made 13 playoff appearances but Russell was 11-0 in [...]

Anyone for a participation trophy?

I remember when I was a kid and my father would take me to games at the Old Boston Garden and I would look up in the rafters and wonder why the Bruins had so many banners hanging? Had the Bruins won more championships than the Celtics? My father explained to me that the Bruins [...]

Frauds: Colts and Sox

I am launching an investigation into the Indianapolis Colts franchise for fraudulent behavior. I begin my case by pointing to the 2004 playoff game when Ty Law snared three interceptions en route to a 24-14 win over the Colts. Colts GM Bill Polian “The Ultimate CryBaby” threw a hissy fit in the press box after [...]

Will Stephen Curry have the Golden Touch?

If someone had told me during the NBA’s heyday in the 1980’s that Cleveland and Golden State would be meeting in the NBA Finals at any time ever I would have had a good chuckle. In 1985, Sleepy Floyd and Joe Barry Carroll (AKA Joe Barely Cares) were anchoring a 33-49 Golden State team that [...]

No more guarantees please!

It has been a long-time coming, but the NBA playoffs have been more exciting than the NHL playoffs this year. For a team that had aspirations of winning the NBA championship, the Chicago Bulls season ended with a thud. To lose three straight games to Cleveland including the final one on your home court by [...]

"The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream." William Shakespeare on Josh Hamilton.

The NFL continues to clamp down on discipline with the stiff penalty the New York Jets received for tampering. Not only did they not lose a draft pick, they weren't even forced to switch places in a round with the Patriots.  Meanwhile, in an inteview with Charlie Rose, commissioner Roger Goodell said the Deflategate decision should [...]
