Red Sox Falter, Lose To Royals In 14-Inning Marathon

Over the course of a 162-game season, there’s a game or two in the mix where it feels like no matter what the Red Sox do, they simply come up short. Last night against the Royals fell right into that category, as the Red Sox stranded the winning run in scoring position in four of […]

Video: Drunk Fan Gets Wrecked by Fenway Security

Anyone who’s been to Fenway Park knows that there’s always that guy who has a few beers and thinks he’s a hero.

OMG NKOTBSB!! – New Kids On The Block, Backstreet Boys To Play At Fenway

“During the dark ages of the Evil Empire before 2004, it was 2003 and I had just gotten married,” Joey McIntyre recalled. “After that Game 7 in New York, I was in the fetal position like all of Red Sox Nation, moaning and my wife said to me ‘You’re not on the team! You’re not […]

Citgo Sign Turned Back On During Red Sox-Blue Jays Game

The Couch Potato Report: Halfway to St. Patty’s Day Edition

Ladies and gentlemen, the final official weekend of summer is upon us. Fall is already in the air, and so is football… and it is a truly glorious thing.

Football (aka Soccer) Returns to Fenway

Something was definitely amiss at Fenway Park Wednesday night. Sure, the fans were all there (over 32,000). The architecture was the same as it always was: the Green Monster looming over left field, the Budweiser sign illuminating right, Fisk and Pesky marking the corners. The songs were the same too: “Dirty Water,” “Shipping Up to […]

Sox Drop Independence Day Game To Lowly O’s

Fans of fireworks on the Fourth of July were dissapointed this holiday. At Fenway Park at least.

Pink Hats: Fenway Park’s Immigrants

Pink hats are the illegal immigrants of Fenway Park, and some Sox fans are starting to act like Arizona law enforcement officers. It’s easy to see why longtime fans resent the newcomers to Kenmore Square. Bleacher seats are hard to come by these days, and if anyone deserves them it’s the tried-and-true fan, whose blue […]

Frozen Fenway, BU-BC and a Much Needed Party

It takes a lot to impress me. Very rarely do I walk out of a movie, a concert, a social gathering or sporting event shaking my head in pleasurable disbelief. Not to say I don’t enjoy any of these things, because I often do. It’s just I don’t get blown away very often. I’m much […]

My Boston Sports Wish List for the Next Decade

There is never anything wrong with looking back. But after a while, you just get tired of it. Over the last few weeks, we have all been inundated with year-end and decade-end reviews, “Best of” lists, and whatever else writers and newscasters like to throw at you to fill time in December. It’s all well […]

Winter Classic Destined To Be a Classic

Fenway Park was on the edge of its collective seat for the third annual Winter Classic. It was a close, tough match, but the Boston Bruins somehow clawed out a 2-1 victory at the end. The 1st period was nothing special, really. Some back and forth action, with a nice looking save or two on each […]
