I can think of probably 500 things that "scream Boston" before I'd get to NKOTB. Maybe 1000. Maybe 10,000. I knew of no one -- literally not a single soul -- who would make such a claim at the time, o more »

This is the most juvenile, biased, immature "reporting" I've ever seen in a newspaper. Good grief, no wonder the papers are going out of business! The way this is written, I'm surprised it didn't have more »

It's actually not a small point at all. First of all, as you said, you can't defer in OT. Secondly, I keep seeing other stories saying that Belichick elected to kick. He most certainly did not elect more »

re "To start overtime, Bill Belichick instructed his captains to defer" No he didn't. You can't defer an overtime coin toss. He instructed them to choose to defend the south goal. The captain of the more »

The questioner got it wrong. The Patriots didn't elect to kick. They elected to defend the south goal. After they made their decision, the Broncos then had the choice of receiving or kicking.

Unbelievable. First of all, so what? Secondly, so what? And thirdly, so what?

The players "dawned" their t-shirts? Are you kidding me? No wonder the Globe is going bankrupt. The players DONNED their t-shirts.

It took them 30 minutes to find him? So... if he was carrying an explosive device, they gave him 30 minutes to detonate it? And even though he wasn't -- and from what's written in the story here, he more »

That's just simply not true. His defense was that he acted in self-defense. He didn't follow and shoot someone. He followed someone that he, as a neighborhood watch volunteer - thought was acting susp more »

I'm horribly offended at the rampant misspelling of "JC Penny" [sic]. I'm organizing One Million People With Fourth Grade Spelling Skills to boycott the Boston Globe.

"We played overall complimentary football game"
So the football game said nice things to everyone? Or was the football game free?
Or did you really mean "complementary"?

The conservative side always argues facts and figures. The liberal side always responds with name-calling and childish remarks. Remarkable.

Sorry, I meant that the deficit of $5T was over the past 4 years, not just 2011. That $5T (of which the 2011 debt was something like $1.1T) drove the debt up to between $15T and $16T. It wasn't tha more »

Oh yeah. I almost forgot. The top 1% of income earners already pay approximately 40% of all income taxes in the U.S. They are already covering everyone's butts. When I was a kid (1960s to 1970s), a more »
