Why would they do this show? Yes, the stereotypes are horrible, but the show as a whole is... having a hard time coming up with a non-vulgar word to describe it. It's not worth staging simply for aest more »

"A penalty for too many players on the ice with 31 seconds left gave the Americans a 66-on-4 advantage, but a final flurry couldnât bring them the tying goal." Was there enough room on the ice for a more »
Comment on: Moving up was a big-time mistake for UMass football - Sports - The Boston Globe

I'm a UMass grad. I live in BG, OH home of the Falcons (playing the Little Caesar's Bowl as I type). This is hardly big-time, & UMass isn't even close to being competitive. Here's hoping this fiasco, more »

Love to see the Red Sox give prospects & rookies a chance. Wouldn't mind seeing Lackey, Peavy or Dempster go, or Salty. Nothing personal. This year was transition year, now let Sox rebuild. I'm gettin more »
Comment on: Tampa Bay Rays happy to get away from Fenway - Sports - The Boston Globe

The Rays played .500 ball on the road, actually under .500 for most of the season. So Fenway isn't the only park they have problems in.

I think this series is as much a test for Tampa Bay, which has been feasting on bottom dwellers since mid June. How will tey fare against the rest of the division (Toronto aside)? I don't expect any t more »

At this point I've the old home team more on the road in Cleveland and Detroit. Both nice, modern parks, though Detroit to me is classier (as are the fans, but that's another story). My occasional tri more »

This is the current reality. I'm a reporter working on a small daily newspaper in Bowling Green, Ohio, a community of about 20,000. As the presidential campaign took shape we didn't wonder "what if Ro more »

My concern when I saw the almost constant ads for this show during the Olympics was not that it glorifies war but it trivializes the very rigorous and intense training that real Special Forces face in more »

Coming from Ohio and not being a pet owner, it would be fair to say I don't have a dog, or cat for that matter, in this fight. But I do live in a place that has such a law, and has for years, and it's more »

It's interstate commerce, so why not have a federal sales tax on online sales? The revenue could be distributed to all states with a proportionally larger amount going to states that have their own sa more »

Posted 04/11/2012 11:51:32 EDT
Sorry you can't find a home for your tickets. If I was in Boston I'd gladly relieve you of them. I sat through Sunday's 13-12 disappointment, a debacle from a Red Sox fan's point of view. You know wha more »
