"Game 3" should be "Game 2" in at least two instances

In my opinion, the most powerful challenge to the AGW hypothesis is offered by Murry Salby - anyone interested in a thorough understanding of this issue should check out the YouTube video of his lectu more »

This list might be interesting if there were actually any reason to think that saturated fat content actually equated to "fattening." more »

(Basestealing) speed is not just overrated in a lead-off hitter - it's completely irrelevant. Stolen base attempts have lower net marginal value when hitters with extra-base power are at bat. The id more »

Who is "The Patriot"?

He didn't sell it, he gave it away. Pretty major factual error in the headline.

You are absolutely correct. This is a surprisingly common fallacy in sports writing. Another example occurs in Tom Verducci's book on the Yankees a few years ago, where he says that the Yankees' pat more »

So Brooke was AG back in the 1960s and he was still around to talk to the Globe in 2012? That's either impressive longevity or impressively quick rise to the professionprofession

The question isn't whether or not such weapons will exist, it's whether government will have an exclusive monopoly on them. Allowing them to remain in the hands of the people is an ultimate check on more »

He scored one goal in the playoffs, not zero

@LMEARIAN and PatsFan79: Really? Your team is two wins away from the Stanley Cup, and you're giving up on them just because the other team is making it difficult? Let me guess: you two were probably more »

How do any of these qualify as "things we learned?"

Paille had the winner, not Kelly.

Couldn't agree more. What happened to that Harvard kid who used to be featured in this space? Even he wasn't that great, but at least he seemed to have some understanding of advanced metrics.

Utter nonsense. There exists an enormous range of activities that are entirely a matter of personal choice, and have no business being subjected to legislation of any kind. This is what true liberty more »

@MugMann: I'm not sure why it reveals anything other than decency and good taste that Jacoby chose to omit such a juvenile piece of rhetoric from his selection of the candidate's answers. And further more »

Dslav, unfortunately it is you who is coming up short in the logic department: billysunday's point is pretty clearly that the probability of an injury resulting from that type of hit is the factor tha more »

Especially since it involves numbness in the hand...

How did he know that Tamerlan was dead?

I don't think it's a coincidence that the two players Belichick spoke highly of are Mallett (butter him up for the sake of trade value) and Cannon (reduce Vollmer's negotiating leverage.) Yet another more »

How about: murder should not be tolerated, regardless of the victim's gender.

Surely he meant for it to be spelled the "Frate train".

I'm pretty sure that Bedard would have written a column giving positional averages over the course of the season whether they went to the SB or not. And I'm also pretty sure that a lot of Patriots fa more »

There were some weird things in the sky above Brighton Center last Sunday around 7 pm - looked like flying jack-o-lanterns

Thanks for this article - while I certainly hope that Foster leaves Gillette Stadium with little to show for his efforts, the NFL needs more people like him.
