Boston. Sports. We all love them in our own special ways. We came together at the end of July 2007 to start a blog based on our passions and visions dreaming of Boston sports and our tears of sadness and joy living with Boston sports. Now it’s your chance to learn about the people behind the voices you read each day.
I publish articles in all sections at Sports of Boston. Call me a Jack of All Trades (or super utility man, if you prefer).
Entering the year 2000, no Boston teams had won their sport’s championships since 1986. I was a distraught 14-year-old kid and would do anything to actually see a champion in my lifetime. Fortunately, I didn’t have to wait much longer to get my wish. Since 2001, the Patriots have won three Super Bowls, the Red Sox have claimed two World Series crowns, the Celtics won their 17th NBA Championship, and the Bruins won their first Stanley Cup in 39 years. Seven titles; four teams; one decade. This is why I love Boston sports.
On a more personal level, I graduated from Boston University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. I have wanted to be a sports writer for as long as I can remember, which brings me to my current position at Sports of Boston. I currently work as the Digital Media Manager for WMUR-TV in Manchester, New Hampshire. All opinions and posts written by myself or my staff writers absolutely do not represent the thoughts or opinions of WMUR-TV or Hearst Television.
I previously worked as a web producer at CBS in Boston and at WHDH-TV (Boston’s NBC affiliate) from 2007-2012.
The Sports of Boston community was founded on the basis that there is no other site in the Boston area like it. While the idea for the site came months before its debut, it took an extremely significant event to motivate us to start it up. That motivation came on July 31, 2007, when the Celtics acquired Kevin Garnett and the Red Sox acquired Eric Gagne (which seemed like a good move at the time). The day brought a tremendous amount of sports excitement to the city, and we all wanted to be apart of that. Ten days later, Sports of Boston was born.
If you have any questions, or you want to privately comment on any of my posts, please feel free to email me: kc at sportsofboston.com.
I’m the behind-the-scenes tech guy at Sports of Boston. I’m responsible for making sure all the moving parts assemble together so you can experience Sports of Boston the way it’s been envisioned. I’ll also write some news stories and perhaps even a few statistical-based columns when I have time.
I was indoctrinated into the world of Boston sports when I was little. My dad always brought me to summer games at Fenway Park during the days of Dwight Evans, Ellis Burks, Wade Boggs and later with Mo Vaughn and Pedro. I even saw Jose Canseco pitch in a game for the Red Sox. I think I witnessed one of the biggest home runs ever at Fenway when Frank Thomas completely crushed one over the top of light tower in left field: it was a sight to behold. Recently, I’ve also seen some awesome walkoff home runs by Ortiz; there’s always a special feeling at Fenway when he steps up to the plate, spits in his batting gloves, claps his hands, and walks into the batter’s box; you can almost feel that you’re on the verge of something special.
I also remember one Celtics game, the date: March 15, 1992, Celtics vs. Blazers at the old Boston Garden. Pre-game word was that Larry Bird wasn’t going to play because he was sick, but as a consolation, I’d still be able to see Clyde “The Glide” Drexler beat up on the Bird-less Celtics. Well gametime came, and Larry Bird suited up! In an epic double overtime game, the Celtics pulled it out with Bird hitting a miracle three-pointer to force overtime and carrying through to the second overtime. My voice was so worn out from cheering during the game, I couldn’t talk for a few days afterward…
I graduated from the College of Engineering at Cornell University with a degree in Information Science, Systems, and Technology. What the heck does that mean? It’s basically a combination of lots of math, software engineering, probability, statistics, human-computer interaction, and some artificial intelligence thrown in. Pretty fun stuff!
When I’m not blogging, I’m usually at my day job as an IT Consultant for Sapient working as a Program Manager. When I’m not doing either or finding ways to avoid sleeping, I’m probably working on one of my various side projects dealing with music…more on that later.
If you have an suggestions for cool things you’d like to see at Sports of Boston, found some annoying bug, or want to talk about some hair-pulling engineering problem you can’t figure out, you can reach me at chris at sportsofboston.com.
Hey, how are ya? I’m not that good at intros, but I should seem relatively familiar. Growing up, before the Boston sports allegiances could set in, I was like most other kids, watching the dominant Cowboys, Bulls, and for some reason, the Blue Jays (probably something to do with the mascot). I’ve always been kind of random, anyway.
Now, I pay closer attention now that I know more about the players and strategies. You know how a lot of people always watch and know what the coaches should have done? That’s me.
Unlike many others here, who actually have or are going for journalism degrees, I graduated from Northeastern University in January 2010 (thanks for the timing, economy) with a B.S. in math. I came across Sports of Boston in July, 2009, when the internship market at Northeastern was pretty dry, and have been here ever since, writing, editing, doing the Pick ‘Ems we all know and love, and generally going over the four major area sports.
When I’m not writing here, you can find me hanging around Brookline, walking my above-mentioned cat in Olmsted Park (really, he’s quite the draw, and he plays fetch too). Since I got certification in February 2011, I’ll also be handling your hospital records as a medical coder.
Sorry, guys; no medical marijuana, though.
Hello everyone. My name is Pete. With the exception of a small hiatus in the fall of ’07, I have been with this blog since its inception. I was originally hired to be in charge of fantasy sports, but since then, I have expanded my role here greatly by becoming a contributor in all areas as well as becoming a full time editor in 2009.
On a personal level, I am a graduate of Bridgewater State College in Bridgewater, MA (before it became BSU) majoring in Communication Arts and Sciences with a concentration in Television Production. Currently I am a Mail Distribution Clerk at Arbella Insurance in Quincy. Hey, it pays the bills.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me because it is you, the reader, who makes this site possible
I publish articles focusing primarily on Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots, and fantasy sports.
Much as I hate to admit it, I am what some would call nouveau nation. I didn’t become interested in Boston sports until the 2003 Red Sox playoff run. Until then, my experience with sports was limited to a detached interest in the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers, a gift from my Milwaukee-born parents (I actually rooted against the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI). However, all it took was one playoff game spent with more knowledgeable Red Sox fans in my college’s (Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT) student center for me to be hooked.
One might think that the tragedy of the 2003 ALCS would drive a casual fan away from the Red Sox. And it’s true, the loss hurt deeply. I did not sleep the night Aaron Boone defeated Tim Wakefield, tossing, turning, and shaking violently until it was time to get up for class the next morning (I had a test that day… it did not go well). However, the realization that sports and sports fandom could have such a deep effect on me was amazing. I wanted to feel that all the time, so from then on I threw myself headfirst into all the athletics Boston had to offer (except for hockey… I still think that’s boring and confusing).
As my love of sports increased over the years, I decided that the only way to tame the emotional beast that is sports fandom was to shift it from the emotional side of my brain to the analytical side. Hence came an interest in sports writing, leading to the founding of my personal sports blog (mgoisman.sportsblognet.com) and my subsequently joining Sports of Boston.
I am now a graduate student at Boston University pursuing a master’s degree in sports journalism. I hope the skills I learn through this program will directly and continuously improve my writing for sportsofboston.com. With any luck, this website will be the starting point for a long and successful career as a sports journalist.
You can mainly find my contributions in the Patriots and college football sections. I’m also the self-proclaimed NFL draft guy around these parts.
Prior to SoB, I operated my own Patriots blog and worked at the Sentinel & Enterprise Newspaper in Leominster, Mass. Over the last two years, while contributing to Sports of Boston, I was an editorial intern with the Bleacher Report and most recently a reporting intern with Sports Illustrated in New York.
I’m a senior journalism student at LSU where I’m going to receive a piece a paper that says I can write in May. Since moving to Louisiana — no, everyone is not like people you see on Swamp People — I’ve grown out of my little kid love for Boston sports. No longer do I cry every time the Patriots lose. I do find that this helped my journalism career as I hold little bias toward anyone or any team. Yet still, Tom Brady will always have a close spot in my heart. As will Mo Lewis.
My faith is a big part of my life. I have a terrific girlfriend and I love meeting and talking with new people. Sports of Boston is a fantastic place run by a great group of passionate sports guys.
If you have any questions or suggestions I’m very easy to get in contact with (email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn).
I have been a Red Sox fan since the days when the Boston Globe would give away free tickets if you mailed in a coupon printed in the paper. My favorite player growing up was Wade Boggs, but he put an end to that when he signed with a certain team from New York.
As part of the Sports of Boston team, I contribute Red Sox articles and analysis as well some some Fantasy Baseball insight. I also have a personal blog where I post about the entire MLB universe.
I am a 2005 graduate of Providence College in my second year of law school at Suffolk University.
My name is Matthew or Matt or @FunEGuy13 for those of you on Twitter. I’m constantly glued to the television watching all sorts of sports from this region, from the Red Sox racing towards an American League East title this summer to the Bruins looking to repeat as champions this winter. I’m passionate when it comes to following New England sports, but must admit that I’m not a fan of most of the teams from this region, which I have found reduces any bias in my writing. My allegiances in MLB and the NFL are to the Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Rams, though I am a Bruins and Celtics fan. Despite the love for the Braves I might have, I believe my best work does come when analyzing the Red Sox, as the local coverage I’ve seen in this area in the last seven years has really sharpened my look at the franchise.
Still a teenager (at least for a few more months), I am entering my sophomore year at Wheaton College in Norton Massachusetts, where I am working towards a major in Mathematics and two minors in Education and in English. My love of numbers directly correlates to my appreciation for baseball, where numbers are often more sacred than the players themselves. I grew up in Winchester Massachusetts where I still reside during the summer and winter. Growing up I didn’t play many sports outside of a little bit of baseball, but currently enjoy recreational forms of baseball, basketball, and soccer, as well as any other sport that presents itself.
I’m also a huge fan of fantasy sports, where in my opinion, fans become even more educated on leagues and players than they are simply watching sports casually. I’m always playing some form of fantasy baseball or football depending on the time of year, and enjoy following my players as long as my teams are in first place, where they belong. While I am certainly passionate about sports I also enjoy listening to music and reading. Currently my iPod is loaded with Taylor Swift and Maroon 5, but I also find myself listening to the Moody Blues and Led Zeppelin from time to time. As for reading, I’m trying to return to that childhood passion of mine with a summer of Wuthering Heights, Harry Potter, and The Count Monte Cristo to name a few. I’m always taking suggestions!
I must admit that I have the decency to respect rival athletes to the New England area. The big one I know I’ll get in trouble for is my appreciation for Alex Rodriguez, amongst other Yankees players. I respect the greatness of this era, no matter the controversy, and will always stand by that. My greatest memory in all of sports is being at Yankee Stadium when A-Rod launched his 500th career home run, and chances are that will stand for my lifetime.
I’m all over social media for anyone looking to find out more about me. As I mentioned before I’m on Twitter @FunEGuy13 and you can find me on Facebook as well. I hope that my time at Sports of Boston is just the start of a lifetime of being able to write about sports and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity.
I’m a sophomore at Kenyon College, in Gambier, Ohio where I plan on double majoring in Drama and Political Science.
In fourth grade, I discovered Backyard Baseball for the PC. I was hooked and have been a sports fan ever since. I was lucky enough to grow up during the greatest era of Boston sports. My Dad had to wait years to enjoy a championship. In just 18 short years I have already had the pleasure of witnessing the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins bring home at least one title each.
While I may not personally be blessed with athletic prowess, I do possess a genuine love of sports and an unrivaled ability to trash talk. I believe I bring this passion to my writing and am excited to have the opportunity to do so for Sports of Boston! I plan on contributing to the Now, Opinion, Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots, and Fantasy sections.
Random Opinions: Tom Brady is the greatest American of our generation, Paul Pierce is disgustingly overrated, and the Yankees aren’t nearly as loathsome as they used to be.
I liked the Clippers before they had Blake Griffin. Not to be hipster or anything.
I primarily will write for the Red Sox page with some occasional appearances on the Patriots page.
I grew up on Boston Sports during the championship era. Nothing has supported my love for Boston sports more than seeing three Lombardi Trophies, two World Series Championships, a Stanley Cup, and an NBA Championship all before turning 21. That will never stop me complaining when one of my teams falls on its face, and there will always be game film to go over, which is why I will always have something to write about.
I graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2012 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Engineering Physics and a minor in Entrepreneurship, but I have always had a passion for sports. I have grown up with this city, moving from the downtrodden nation it was for so long into Title Town. Nothing will ever erase the feeling of sheer joy I experienced the moment the Red Sox knocked off the New York Yankees in game seven of the ALCS in 2004. That moment was so surreal and so stunning that I can’t even remember really seeing them win it all.
My absolute favorite Red Sox player was Mark Bellhorn. Everyone will remember him for the strikeouts, but no one every talks about a second baseman who stabilized the position for the team during its first championship run. He had two absolutely CLUTCH home runs including one before the current instant replay review that hit a girl in the first row at Yankee Stadium and really gave the team momentum. No one remembers that he had the fourth highest OPS on the 2004 Red Sox postseason roster. He could also turn a sweet double play. So what if my favorite player is the guy who was replaced by Dustin Pedrioa; I still like him.
I joined the Sports of Boston team in March 2012. I began writing a personal blog, and through some random, click-happy curiosity, I suddenly found myself on the SoB home page. About 10 days later, I started writing.
At 23, my first-hand knowledge of Boston sports history is thin. I grew up a Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics, and Patriots fan, taking most of my cues from my older brother. My earliest memories of Boston Sports consist of Drew Bledsoe getting sacked by, well, everyone; Antoine Walker doing “the wiggle”; Troy O’Leary hitting a grand slam against Cleveland in the playoffs; and Byron Dafoe making saves for the Bruins.
Ironically, I was also taught to root for Providence College basketball (being from Rhode Island) and to despise UCONN. When I decided to attend UCONN a few years ago, I told myself I wouldn’t become a true Husky. That lasted about all of two weeks, and now I’m Jim Calhoun’s biggest champion, and will continue to root for UCONN in all their sports.
I graduated from UCONN in December of 2011, and enjoy working up (and over) in Massachusetts and writing for Sports of Boston weekly.

Hello everyone! I am relatively new to this and just started an internship here at Sports of Boston. I have started to take an interest in sports journalism recently and thought, “why not start an internship and see if I like it?” Well here I am and I’m hoping I can get a hang of this thing!
I am currently a sophomore at Bridgewater State University. I am a Communication Studies Major with a concentration in Media Studies. I have always had a love for sports as long as I can remember. I played Baseball for most of my life and developed a love for Volleyball late in my high school career and play for the club team that will be starting in the Spring. I enjoy watching all types of sports and especially love the Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics.
Although I am originally from Texas, I have fallen in love with Boston sports. There is just a passion here that is completely different from any other place. I was never spoiled with amazing sports teams like there are here. I absolutely love the sports atmosphere here and I would love to make a career out of writing about them.
Hey everyone! I’m Tim. I’m 20 year old student at Bridgewater State University majoring in Communications. My hometown is North Reading, MA. Living in Bridgewater currently, I go back home on holidays or long weekends. During winter breaks and summer, I work full time at Richardson’s Dairy ice cream in the Production area! I have been there for about six years and have loved this job since the day I started. Richardson’s has made a huge impact in my life in which I see this place as my other family.
In the future, I hope to be involved with sports writing however possible. Words will not be able to describe how much I love sports. I played soccer and baseball until the start of high school because I wanted to get a job. This is my first writing job. I’m excited to get started with Sports of Boston in which my hopes it will improve my chances of working in sports in the future. I love to write in my free time even when it does not involve sports. I love to debate about sport topics and input my opinion on several topics that I feel I know about.
Besides writing, I love being with my family. My family means everything to me. I enjoy watching movies in my free time. Good Will Hunting is my favorite movie! I love going into Boston as much as possible. I enjoy the city life and hope to travel to other cities in the future. Besides Boston as being the best city, I loved Chicago. Chicago was a huge city with so much to do. I miss Chicago and hope to go back soon! My hopes are to travel to Seattle and San Francisco in the future!

My name is Jared and I am 22 years old. I have lived in Massachusetts my entire life and will be graduating from West Virginia University with a bachelors degree in journalism and a minor in communications.
Prior to writing for SoB, I interned for 3 years with WVMetroNews. I was a beat writer for basketball, covered recruiting and edited video. I also worked for the college radio station, where I called play by play for baseball, hockey and basketball.
Now my favorite teams are a bit different from everyone else here. I grew up a die hard UNC basketball fan and I am also a Cowboys and Mets fan, though you will never actually hear me admit that I root for the Mets. As for basketball I grew up an Allen Iverson fan. I do not have a favorite NBA team, rather I just love the league and could follow any team.
My greatest sports memory is the 2008 NBA Finals. The reason for that is because I was at Game 6 and can say without a doubt it was the most amazing game I have ever attended. The fact that it was Celtics vs. Lakers was the icing on the cake for me.
When I am not watching sports I enjoy playing xbox, golfing, a competitive game of wiffleball and basketball. I also love playing fantasy sports. Feel free to contact me, jared at sportsofboston.com. Also, Feel free to also look at my sports blog.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Nick Bohlen, and I am here to bring you expert analysis and entertainment (okay, mostly entertainment) across the Sports of Boston spectrum, including Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics coverage.
I grew up in the rural hills of Vermont, breathing and bleeding the Red Sox while listening to game broadcasts on WEEI. I was unwittingly drawn into a lifetime commitment of rooting for the Red Sox by the silky smooth radio voices of Joe Castiglione and Jerry Trupiano and by my dad’s nightly fanaticism. I should have known the Glory Days of not being cursed would come to an end sooner rather than later – thanks, 2011 Red Sox.
While I’m a diehard Red Sox fan first and foremost, you can still find me hanging onto the edge of my seat during Tom Brady two-minute drills, and completely and utterly dejected after a game-tying three-pointer by Ray Allen bounces harmlessly off the rim. Sad (but proud) to say, I live for Boston sports.
I played sports throughout high school, but found out quickly that I was better suited putting pen to paper than putting bat on ball. Now that I’ve graduated from college with an English degree saying I have officially mastered my native language, I hope to combine sports and writing into some semblance of a (likely poverty-stricken) career.
Please let me know what you enjoy and what you don’t enjoy at nbohlen at sportsofboston.com. I would say you’re more likely to hear from me if you give me positive feedback, but that’s just not true – I’m a sucker for a good debate, and nothing will bait me into a response like a (decent-to-good) counterargument.
Also, if you’re a sucker for good debate, too, check me out over on my blog Roommate Rivals for a healthy dose of sports talk and trash talk between two impassioned fans with nothing better to do than blog-fight over who has secured bragging rights and sports supremacy.
I love sports, playing them, watching them, and now writing about them. I write about the Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics, Patriots and some fantasy sports.
My name is Bobby Doherty and I am 19 years young. I have lived in Medford for all 19 years of my life. I played some high school basketball, but I havent laced up my Nikes in a year or so now. Instead, I dedicated the past year to becoming a hockey player, and so far so good. I bowl in two leagues a year; my average is 104 so I think im pretty good at it.
I took a couple of years off from school after I graduated high school to figure out what I want to do and I am going back to school next fall.

Hello everyone. I started writing for Sports of Boston in October of 2009 where I help cover the Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox, and New England Patriots. I grew up and currently reside in Scarborough, ME (about 10 miles south of Portland), and graduated from Wheaton College (Norton, MA) in May of 2009 with a BA in History.
I have played sports all my life. I began playing soccer at the age of 5, and baseball at the age of 6. At Scarborough High School I played Varsity Soccer and Varsity Baseball, and swam during the winter of my sophomore year. I also began watching sports at a very young age. I have been a die hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan since I can remember, but I also root for the Celtics and Red Sox (a result of having a father from Pittsburgh and growing up in Maine).
At Wheaton College, I wrote bi-weekly sports columns for the campus newspaper, The Wire. During my senior year at Wheaton I wrote for the sports department at the Sun Chronicle newspaper in Attleboro, MA.
Feel free to check out my personal sports blog.
I recently joined the Sports of Boston team and I will be publishing articles focused on the Celtics, Red Sox, Patriots and fantasy sports.
I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree at Stonehill College, where I major in business management. Born and raised in Salem, Massachusetts, I have been a Boston sports fan my entire life. Ever since I was little, my favorite sport has been basketball and my dream was to someday win an NBA championship with the Celtics. I like to think that my basketball career was cut short due to a broken foot freshman year of high school, but truth is, I’m only 5’11, pretty slow, can’t dribble, and can barely get off the ground. Even though the basketball gods didn’t grant me with much talent, I am still very much in tune with the sport and the Celtics.
My most memorable Boston sports moment as a kid was when my dad took me to a Red Sox vs Mariners game on my birthday, where my favorite player at the time (Garciaparra) hit three homeruns (one of which was a walk off). From then on, I have been convinced by a couple World Series rings, an NBA championship, and multiple Super Bowl titles by the Patriots, that living in this decade of dominance makes it ever so gratifying to love Boston sports.

Ethan’s arrival at Sports of Boston came during the NFL and NBA lockouts — hopefully I’ll have things to write about come fall and winter.
At Sports of Boston, I will be writing about the Patriots, Celtics, Red Sox, and soccer.
I’m a sophomore at Brown University in Providence, RI, where I’m currently deciding between a concentration in history, environmental studies, and/or anthropology. I’m Sports Editor of the Brown Daily Herald, Brown’s only independently run and daily student newspaper. Before assuming my duties as editor, I was the beat reporter for the football, men’s ice hockey, and men’s lacrosse teams. I’m also a sports blogger on the newspaper’s partner blog site, blogdailyherald.com, and am the Brown beat reporter for United States College Hockey Online (USCHO.com). Journalism has long been an interest of mine, and in addition to sportswriting, I write news stories on environmental topics for GreenAnswers.com.
I’ve lived in the Boston area my entire life, and have been a fan of Boston teams since I first realized what a baseball was. I can remember my first ever Red Sox game, an inter-league matchup against Milwaukee where my screams for Nomar were muffled by the plexiglass of what was then known as the .406 club. My ardent fandom for sports spread from that point on, and I’m grateful that my city’s teams have provided for me a childhood of championships that my Philadelphia-native father is quick to remind me isn’t the norm.
While my writing here will focus on the Boston teams we love, I am also a supporter of Liverpool FC, and the British Open will always be one of my Top Three favorite sporting events. I also am extremely interested in the relationship between sports and culture in all parts of the world, and appreciate, along with most sports fans, that sports are really more than just a game.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me directly at ethan at sportsofboston.com.
I started writing for Sports of Boston in August 2011, focusing my writing on soccer, basketball, football and baseball. In May 2009, I graduated from Middlebury College (a small, liberal arts school in rural Vermont) with a major in History and a minor in Economics. After graduation, I moved to the Boston-metro area and began working for a small non-profit downtown.
Sports have always played a large role in my life; some of my fondest childhood memories are from youth soccer tournaments and Little League games. I played soccer, basketball, tennis and ran track in high school, and played Ultimate throughout college. I still play Ultimate on a team called Boston Ironside, which came in second at Nationals in 2010.
Hopefully the NBA season doesn’t get cancelled! The most exciting sporting event I’ve ever been to was Game 4 of this year’s Heat-Celtics series (even though the C’s lost), and the league would lose the support of a large percentage of fans if the lockout drags on. Personally, I can’t imagine living without the NBA for over a year, especially since the time is now for the Celtics. Although maybe Ray, KG and Paul would like the extra rest!
If you want to contact me with questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to do so at pjprial at sportsofboston.com.
What’s up everyone? I’m 26 years old and I currently live in Saco, Maine. I work at a CW affiliate TV station in Portland, Maine where I am in charge of promotions and also co-produce a high school sports show. In May 2007, I graduated from Boston University with a bachelors degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in history.
While at BU I was a sports writer for The Daily Free Press, BU’s independent student newspaper. There, I wrote about several different sports and in the fall of 2006 I was one of the beat writers for the nationally ranked Terrier’s women’s soccer team. I also helped out on Terrier Nation, a bi-weekly sports broadcast show completed by students which aired on BUTV.
My other journalism experience came in the summer of 2006 where I worked as a full time sports writer for Foster’s Daily Democrat in Dover, NH. There I wrote daily game stories and features on sports of all different levels – from little league to college. I was fortunate enough to be the exclusive Foster’s writer to cover the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA when Portsmouth Little League won the New England Regional Tournament.
Personally, I am enamored with sports and can’t go a day without seeing at least a part of SportsCenter. My favorite teams include the New England Patriots – for which I’ve been to every playoff game since 2001 by way of my father’s season tickets, the Atlanta Braves, Boston Celtics and my true passion, Liverpool Football Club in England. I also closely follow the sports of my alma mater at Boston University and I follow Duke basketball and Florida State football.
When I’m not watching sports I enjoy war movies and comedies, bonfires, video games and politics. Feel free to email me at jeff at sportsofboston.com if you have any other questions or comments.
