According to a report in the Boston Globe, the Boston Red Sox have made a five year, $95 million offer to free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval.

Positives and Negatives: Patriots-Jets Week 12

If anyone had any doubt about how good this Patriots team was, or how bad the New York Jets were, Thursday Night was just the showcase to convince people about the stark contrast between these two football teams. If Rex Ryan actually believes that the squad that showed up to play Thanksgiving night actually had […]

Thanks for the Memories: Darko Leaves Celtics

Thanksgiving is upon us, but I can hardly give thanks for the tragic news out of the Boston Celtics. Brace yourselves, Celtics fans. Darko Milicic will no longer be wearing the Celtic green. He left before Sunday’s game against his former team, the Detroit Pistons, for personal reasons, as his mother has taken ill in […]

Patriots Must Respond to Difficult Challenge on Thanksgiving vs. Jets

The last time the Patriots were scheduled to play the Jets, we heard the same propaganda from the media and the fans. Pats will roll. The Jets stink. Mark Sanchez is not a big-time quarterback. All of this may be true. But, I wasn’t being a contrarian when I predicted a Jets victory, and I […]

Video: Matt Lauer Calls Bruins The “Boston Brewers”

I know this is old…but with last week being a holiday weekend, I’m not sure this got as much play as it should have over the local airwaves and online. But, during the Thanksgiving special last week in New York, NBC’s “Today Show” host Matt Lauer was teasing last week’s Bruins-Red Wings game. Whether it […]

2011 Turkey of the Year: Josh Beckett

Josh Beckett spent much of his 2011 season pitching well…really well actually. He had his best season as a Red Sox, finishing 13-7 with a career-best 2.89 ERA and 1.026 WHIP. But when his team needed him most, he tanked. Plagued by his perceived addiction to eating fried chicken and drinking beer during games he wasn’t pitching […]

Bruins Den: Giving Thanks for Winning Streaks

Eight games and 21 days into the November, the Boston Bruins (11-7-0) are still yet to lose this month. On their current eight-game winning streak, which has seen them rocket from last place in the Eastern Conference to just two points out of the Northeast Division lead with two games in hand, the Bruins have […]

Patriots to Play Lions on Thanksgiving

According to Mike Florio at ProFootballTalk, the Patriots will be the Lions opponent on Turkey Day this season. Mr. Florio’s reasoning notes that since the Jets are now hosting the late Thanksgiving game, they obviously cannot play in one of the day games. With the Lions playing on CBS, their opponent must come from the […]

Football and Thanksgiving

Football and Thanksgiving has become such a dynamic duo that it is beginning to rival peanut butter and jelly. There have been professional football games on Thanksgiving dating back all the way to 1920, and there were surely games being played well before then. Back then, those games featured teams such as the Akron Pros, […]

Happy Thanksgiving

First, I’d like to say Happy Thanksgiving to everybody. Here are a few things Boston sports fans have to be thankful for: The Red Sox won the World Series.  The Patriots are 10-0. The Celtics are 9-1. The Bruins have a winning record at 10-7-2. The Revolution made it to the MLS Cup and lost…but they made […]
