    4/20 - High as “Hall” I Ain’t Got No Satellites On Me

    Way, way back in the day, my uncle was a back-up goalie for Maine. Years later, he'd remember the chants from the crowd at the end of blowouts: "Put the fat kid in!"

    Nominations for best Boston area Play by Play and Color Commentators ALL TIME

    For PBP, Joe Castiglione is excellent, but Most is kind of in his own class. We used to listen to the radio while watching the Cs on TV because of Johnny. I still use "Justice" (followed missed free throws by opponents when an 'unfair' foul was called against the Celts) at random moments in...

    New and improved - the 2021 Pats Draft Contest!

    2 pts this year in "part 1,' plus another 5 in 'part 2' if (as was the case with Asiasi) you pick makes the initial 53. Asiasi got you 3 last year, but @SMU_Sox (rightly, IMO) wanted to shift focus on the guys who are most likely to have a real role with the team. Edit - sorry, responding to...

    New and improved - the 2021 Pats Draft Contest!

    Interesting - I'll have to check with 'the judge' to see if we pay off 10x if a player is named ten times and picked once...

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    I'm a believer. Is it me, or does he win every opening tip?

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    I don't think Theis was the problem, but his absence sure seems like it's part of the solution. The Cs are way better with TL and TT splitting the 5

    New England Patriots Hall of Fame

    Heck, he has his own *museum* in Parry Sound. Highly recommended! (museum and Parry Sound/North, both)

    A Jamin and a Jamar (plus a Trill) - that's a rockin' group!

    Bruins trade 3rd Round Pick for Mike Reilly

    He doesn't need a quarantine after crossing a national border? FYI, I needed two weeks when I went the other way.

    New and improved - the 2021 Pats Draft Contest!

    Living proof that my reading skills are better than my comprehension skills... I went through @SMU_Sox list, and picked none of the guys (except Dickerson, tbf) that he highlighted. Instead, I went for the seldom-used 'pick 20 guys from 20 different schools!' approach. Sure, that's probably...

    New and improved - the 2021 Pats Draft Contest!

    Hey, draftniks – it’s that time again! And this time, @SMU_Sox has helped define a better-than-before draft contest approach, one that plays out in two parts. As in past years, you get to pick 20 players for the Pats. Please submit these as last name, first name, position, school. There aren’t...

    2021 Trade Deadline

    Sorry for the dumb question. I get the Kucherov dodge. But what's the advantage with someone like Gaborik? You get relief in the amount of the player's salary, but that only offsets the amount paid to a non-player, right? I must be missing something here...

    Red Sox Draft Tanner Houck, RHP, Missouri at #24 Overall

    God forbid we keep a pitcher who gets people out, when we have dreck like Richards and Taylor on the staff.

    April 4th vs. Orioles 1:10 pm: 160-2 is still possible

    Is it bad that the exploding whale is already a metaphor before the end of game 3? Asking for a 'nation's that may need alternative summer plans.
