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 50 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 3 World Series victories in 5 years 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’ve always liked Wakefield & still do. In fact, as a 70’s senior, I tend to root for ALL older athletes. However, as they say, "Business, is Business”. He’s tried now 4-5 times to win # 200. more »

    "Who's Your Daddy" as per Pedro's comments re: Yankees, Sabathia might feel, I hope the same way about us !!! My wounds from last night’s loss will be healed if by some miracle we can beat Sabathia more »

    Not only the Heat, but the Lakers will regret not signing Shaq. I've copied & pasted some of my comments below from another post Re: Shaq . I think that the class thing for the Lakers to have done was more »

    I don't have the stats and even if we lead the Yanks & Rays in Batting Ave, Homers etc., it seems having suffered many games that we get men on base but lack the key hit. Beltre, Youk come to mind in more »

    Naturally, the team needs play good defense, the BIG THREE needs perform very well but I think Sheed is the key to Celtic victory Game # 7. By no means am I happy that Perkins is out but, God Willing more »

    I believe Kobe is the best since Michael Jordan and even makes more acrobatic shots than Wade & LeBron. I would not double team him but contain him as best as possible. Put 2 men on him and he can sti more »

    Celtics must approach tonight's game as if they were behind 2-0 or at least 1-1. I don't mind Pierce's trash talk & don't really know if he did truly infer that a broom was in order for a sweep. Trash more »
