Everyone is totally piling on here. I would like to defend Bobby to some extent. We all know that he didn't pick this team, or most of the coaches, and that, IMO, the team pretty much completely quit more »

The NHL cable station covered pretty much the whole parade Saturday... via the great NESN feed! Almost felt like I was there instead of in 93 degree Florida. GREAT VIBE! It was impressive how many fol more »
Forum Post: Talk about your favorite boy bands
Posted 06/10/2011 06:55:24 EDT
Some, or even many, of the "boys" in these former "boy" bands like NKOB are 40 years old! Sounds like the "Peter Pan" syndrome. The "girls" who idolized these "boys" are now mothers and grandmothers. more »
Forum Post: Worst loss of the year?
Posted 05/05/2011 06:30:16 EDT
I agree with the general tenor of the comments above: the Red Sox are a very mnediocre team right now. As Bill Parcells says, "You are what you are." I hope the players didn't take the pre-season hype more »

Someone already said it: they all have their delights. Why fight or gloat over it; just enjoy them all! I must say for swimming though, the 50s on the outer Cape is pretty chilly!

This may be stupid, but after that MOST DISASTROUS QUARTER IN PATRIOTS' PLAYOFF HISTORY, we played 'em even... I know, that's not much consolation for me, either. D'oh!! They may come up with a lot of more »
Forum Post: Your thoughts on pink hats
Posted 07/09/2008 05:07:39 EDT
First. I hate pink hats, too, as well as camo hats, white hats, etc. Let the Yankees' fans wear pink hats! (That's where I first saw a pink baseball hat, on Yankee fans!) But the fact is (as a true, l more »

Yes, and going back even further, to 1978, I can never forget that the Sox had (I believe) an 11-game lead over the Yankees in August, and the Yankees tied them on the last day of the season, then cam more »
