About Me: Born Portland, Maine. Spent 21 years in New England. Catholic schools-Priests asked if I got the calling (to be a priest)but instead got the calling for the draft so chose(USMC). Lifelong Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Patriots fan. Been in the other BAY AREA past 45 years(SF) and as there is a rivalry similar to NY-Boston with SF and LA, the sports bars here in No. Cal. have fans rooting for us as if I were in Boston. Still go to New England once-twice per year to visit family---extremely partial to better seafood on East Coast & better sports fans as here they are more fair weather. Had a great run though with Joe Montana/Steve Young & 49ers and recently the SF Giants 2 World Series victories and now the Warriors to hopefully, along with the Clippers, keep the Lakers out of the playoffs. Remember Wrigley's Spearment Gum Ad ? Double your pleasure, double your fun. I get almost as much pleasure watching Yankees lose as I do watching the Sox win and ditto for the Celtics winning & Lakers losing !!! When Sox & Celtics don't play NY & LA, I root for any team that does!

    I am a Pats fan first but living in SF Bay area it's not difficult to like the 49ers too, especially in the Montana & Young days. Some fans are happy with a team having a winning record and making the more »

    I recall some posts a few years ago when Garnett was compared to McHale in size and moves but I felt with Kevin's wing span he was a better rebounder, Garnett perhaps a quicker & better defender, but more »

    The biggest reason I want to beat the Yankees, in addition to hating them for the 70 years I've been a Sox fan, is to put a another nail or two or three(wishful thinking) in their wild card playoff ho more »

    This has nothing to do with Lester but I was happy to see Peavy finally get a victory after 2 losses with SF and about 10 losses in a row. He gave up 1 run & 4 hits in 7 innings and Giants gave him a more »
