Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount Graces Cover of Sports Illustrated

After galloping over the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs to the tune of 166 yards rushing and four rushing touchdowns, LeGarrette Blount finds himself on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated issue. This comes with mixed feelings for Patriots fans. On one hand, it elicits that warm, fuzzy feeling […]

Broncos Lose Starting CB Harris to Torn ACL, Sign Ex-Patriot Cole

And so the chess match begins. The Denver Broncos lost starting cornerback Chris Harris for Sunday’s AFC Championship matchup when he was diagnosed with a torn ACL. He suffered the injury in the third quarter against the San Diego Chargers, and an MRI confirmed he tore the ACL in his left knee. Broncos brass wasted […]

Video: Charles Barkley Berates Patriots Fans, Says We Take Team for Granted

On Saturday, Charles Barkley attended the New England Patriots’ 43-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts as a guest of owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick. Afterwards, he had some choice words for Patriots fans, which can be seen below. (Warning: Barkleys drops some strong language in the video.) So Mr. Barkley, you think we take […]

Former Red Sox (Kinda) Adam LaRoche Kills Catamount

Okay, so Adam LaRoche appeared all of six games with the Boston Red Sox during the 2009 season, one of three teams he played for that year. The Red Sox acquired him from the Pittsburgh Pirates before the trade deadline, only to flip him to the Atlanta Braves nine days later. He accrued five hits […]

Former Patriots WR Deion Branch Signs with Colts

Um, what the hell, Anthony Deion Branch? Yes, this warrants me using your full name, like a scolding mother after you broke a flower vase. I thought we had a deal. No, I thought we had something special. Because like that delicate flower vase, you broke my heart on Monday when you signed with Andrew Luck and […]

Former Patriots Coordinator Bill O’Brien Reportedly Next Head Coach of Texans

ESPN is reporting that former Patriots offensive coordinator and current Penn State coach Bill O’Brien is going to become the next head coach of the Houston Texans. These promotions of former Patriots coaches always makes me wonder how Bill Belichick reacts to his former coordinators becoming his equal (if there is such a thing with […]

With just one game left in the regular season, it’s been a busy week for the New England Patriots.

Knicks Still Looking to Trade for Rehabbing Rondo

At 9-19 and currently out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture, ESPN is reporting that the New York Knicks are looking to boost their postseason prospects by landing rehabbing Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo. It’s hard to take such rumors seriously coming out of New York because the Knicks labeled this year’s team championship […]

Patriots Clinch AFC East with Dolphins Loss

It’s not even halftime of their game against the Baltimore Ravens, but the New England Patriots have already clinched their fifth straight AFC East division title. Looks like Bill Belichick didn’t have to look to Marky Mark for inspiration after all. The assists goes to the Buffalo Bills for doing what the Patriots could not […]

Belichick Takes Patriots to Movies to See Mark Wahlberg in ‘Lone Survivor’

Yup, you read that correctly: Bill Belichick took the New England Patriots to the movies on Friday to catch Lone Survivor, starring Mark Wahlberg. Apparently, the team had an extra early set of team meetings on Friday morning, hit the practice field by 10 AM, then had an afternoon watching Hollywood’s account of a four-person Navy […]

Video: Celtics’ Sullinger Completes Amazing Tip-In Play vs. Pistons

Boston Celtics color commentator (and gigantic homer) Tommy Heinsohn: “Well there’s 0.2 on the shot clock, so nothing’s gonna happen here unless it’s the best tip-in play of the century.” 0.2 seconds later… (Video courtesy of the Boston Globe)

While Waiting for Surgery, Gronkowski Shops for Groceries in Motorized Scooter

Look out, Rhode Island. Gronk has a new set of wheels and is on the loose. In Whole Foods. Buying groceries. Wearing a hoodie. Snapping photos with little kids. (A far cry from this, eh?) I guess that’s what happens when you tear your ACL and MCL, reducing you from 6’6″ beast of an NFL […]

Video: Celtics Honor Doc Rivers in his Return

If anyone wondered whether the Boston faithful might boo Doc Rivers for forcing a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers (was it just me?), last night laid those doubts to rest. When the timeout before the second quarter arrived, the Boston Celtics honored Doc Rivers with a special tribute video covering his nine years with […]

Patriots-Ravens Inexplicably Flexed Out of Sunday Night Football Slot

Defending Super Bowl champions? Check. Perennial Super Bowl contender? Check. Two playoff bound teams? Check. Two star quarterbacks? Check, and check. A rematch of last year’s AFC title game? Oh, the last TWO AFC title games? Discount double check. Basically, the New England Patriots taking on the Baltimore Ravens fits every possible criteria for what […]

Reunion Week: Celtics to Face Garnett, Pierce, and Doc with Nets and Clippers Up Next

It’s reunion week for the Boston Celtics, as they will play back-to-back games against the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers, bringing back old faces Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Doc Rivers (and Jason Terry, I guess, but I hardly think he counts). Pierce will be on that suit and tie with a broken […]
