Comment on: Win over Blackhawks is further proof the Bruins are the best team in the NHL - Boston Sports Blog - Boston.com
Posted 03/28/2014 07:27:49 EDT
Smith seemed like the 7th player shoe-in until February, but not sure how you overlook Soderberg at this point. Team looks great--but let's remember, the real hockey doesn't start until the playoffs. more »
Comment on: Julian Edelman re-signs with the Patriots - Extra Points - Boston.com
Posted 03/15/2014 08:40:02 EDT
Excellent run so far.
Perfect would be Wilfork also boomeranging back to Foxboro and signing one new top receiver.

In further news, Marc Savard will not be playing for Team Canada in this year's Olympics....
Comment on: Make Boston hip, but keep its spirit - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/02/2014 08:42:22 EST
A failed stretch to find a new way to complain about smoking bans. There IS a consistent, liberal principle: if the activity harms someone else (drinking AND driving, smoking around others) it's restr more »
Comment on: Report: Shawn Thornton suspended 15 games - bruins blog - Boston Globe hockey news
Posted 12/14/2013 03:28:05 EST
BTW--probably worth it to take the 15 games and send a message that the team won't put up with that s*&$. But imagine, if Thornton had just skated straight up to the front of Orpik, dropped his glove more »
Posted 12/14/2013 03:24:33 EST
boomerst3--"mugging" was a figurative term--but it fits. All Thornton had to do was approach from the front and initiate a hockey fight. He didn't. He slew footed Orpik from behind. Then he popped more »
Posted 12/14/2013 02:49:50 EST
Love Thornton, the fact that he can actually play the game, his standing up for teammates, and his being a good guy in the community. Amazing that in 11 years of playing his role, he's never had an i more »
Comment on: Brooks Orpik taken off ice on stretcher - bruins blog - Boston Globe hockey news
Posted 12/07/2013 10:26:30 EST
Orpik should get suspension for hit on Ericsson. Neal should get suspension for hit on Marchand. Thornton should get suspension for punching Orpik while he was down (though they hardly looked like har more »
Comment on: Yankees, Ellsbury deal is official - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 12/07/2013 10:16:49 EST
Who is this? He's dead to me.
NYY should enjoy choking on that contract in a few years.
Comment on: Boston to ban smoking in public parks - News Local Massachusetts - Boston.com
Posted 11/27/2013 03:09:42 EST
So, similarly, mercury and other chemicals in water are a ludicrous concern, as are banned pesticide substances, banned chemicals in food, other substances where long term studies show harmful health more »
Posted 11/27/2013 02:51:41 EST
Some poor logic by those whining "nanny state" and the "make it illegal or back off" set. Smoking is harmful. You're free to harm yourself. Second hand smoke is harmful. You're not free to harm other more »
Comment on: Plenty of gray area in the black and white of NFL rule book - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/20/2013 11:16:01 EST
Just want to see some consistency. If you're going to flag McCordy for the hold on the Panther's key late 4th Q scoring drive, then you need to flag Carolina for holding Gronk.
Comment on: Mayor Menino calls Bill Maher's comments on Boston Marathon bombings 'very irresponsible' - The Buzz - Boston.com sports news
Posted 11/15/2013 07:03:38 EST
Ignore Maher--he's neither that funny, that clever nor that smart. Far better talent to watch than him.
Comment on: Adding Celtics games a low-risk gamble for Sports Hub, radio observers say - Business - Boston.com
Posted 09/28/2013 10:01:31 EDT
Bummer--that presumably will result in less Pats and Bruins coverage on the Sports Hub to waste time on the Celtics.
Comment on: Citing injuries, gender politics, Newton South High School cancels âpowderpuffâ game - Boston.com
Posted 09/14/2013 01:31:13 EDT
So instead of instrucing the kids how to behave or cut out the inappropriate behavior or avoid injuries, you abdicate and cancel the game? Aren't schools supposed to teach?
Comment on: Summer intern for NTSB apparently confirms list of racist joke names for crew members of crashed plane - The Source - Latest news and updates from Boston.com
Posted 07/13/2013 03:25:41 EDT
Perhaps in poor taste, perhaps insensitive to people who just lost a loved one, but racially insensitive? Calling such a pun "racist" lowers the bar for racism so low that deserved condemnation will more »
Comment on: Patriots had no inside knowledge of murder charge before cutting Aaron Hernandez - Boston.com
Posted 06/29/2013 12:15:05 EDT
Shameful? I applaud the Patriots for dumping him. He's innocent until proven guilty for criminal legal purposes with a "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard. But his employer doesn't have to (nor sh more »
Comment on: Bruins need big performance from Chara - Touching All the Bases - Boston.com
Posted 06/22/2013 05:53:28 EDT
Their scouting says Chara doesn't like physical play? It probably also says their goalie doesn't have a problem stopping pucks on his glove side. Bruins had a terrible game of bad decision making and more »
Comment on: Former Bruins coach Mike Milbury criticizes Jaromir Jagr - bruins blog - Boston Globe hockey news
Posted 06/16/2013 10:02:33 EDT
I usually like Mike and his candid commentary but he is WRONG. Jagr creates space for his teammates. He shields the puck as well as anyone else along the wall. He dishes pass after pass onto teammate more »
Comment on: Julien says there are "lots of options" with Campbell out - bruins blog - Boston Globe hockey news
Posted 06/06/2013 08:15:32 EDT
Watch for Jordan Caron--they will need solid defensive zone play, which he has given and he's been playing. Other than a few bad icings, he looked solid in his Bruins games. Though Claude likes vete more »
Comment on: Are Penguins too good for Bruins? - Adam Kaufman - Boston.com Sports
Posted 05/30/2013 07:49:51 EDT
A lot of the commentary in the press sounds like the folks who were writing the Bruins off against Vancouver two years ago. Bruins lost three games to Pens this year--two were the Bruins' third game more »
Comment on: Torey Krug contributes as unsung hero - Bruins Daily - Boston.com
Posted 05/26/2013 11:43:17 EDT
Have to agree with a few of the recent commenters--came on here to encourage the author to look up "unsung" in the dictionary -- unexpected, unanticipated, sure, but the whole Garden has been chanting more »
Comment on: Andrew Ference out tonight - bruins blog - Boston Globe hockey news
Posted 05/12/2013 04:26:55 EDT
Despite being out of rhythm on the power play (that he never plays on), Ference is key to B's defensive pairings, is positionally sound, distributes puck well and will be missed. I would like to see more »
Comment on: White House photo shows Obama skeet shooting - News - Boston.com
Posted 02/02/2013 05:10:11 EST
Wow! I didn't know...
...he's a lefty.
Comment on: Bruins looked in midseason form in opener - Bruins - Boston.com
Posted 01/20/2013 01:56:22 EST
liras beat me to the punch...Campbell, clear loss. Gutsy, willing to go against a bigger guy, but clear loss. Overall, team looked great. Hardly out of form. Particularly impressed with Hamilton and more »
