    Markelle Fultz, Year Three: He's back! Big....?

    Went to the game last night and the crowd went nuts for his first half, and then exploded with his game-winning one-handed dunk (and one) at the end. Hope he can keep building on performances like that, it's fun rooting for the kid.

    2019 MLB Awards Week: Verlander barely beats Cole for Cy Young

    Another good example is Lamelo Ball having like 8 million Instragram followers, which is more than any MLB player (and NFL too I believe, but still). Boggles my mind but yea MLB needs to do more to promote.

    Even at 2-0 the 2004 comeback is the gift that never stops giving.

    [POLL] Vote on Unlocking/Locking the "Undefeated Season Watch" Thread

    I voted unlock. Embrace the challenge, don't hide from it. Nothing we did worked before so why worry about it now. This team is a MONSTER and why not enjoy them right now at their peak. And so what if they lose a game eventually; it's hard to run the table in the NFL and it wouldn't be...

    Celebrating What Is

    Just like when teams get down 0-3 and the Sox are referenced, whenever a team gets down huge those Pats will be referenced. It's beautiful.

    I like to think the last 18 have been the correction for the previous era.

    The world’s greatest sports trivia question is intact for another year

    Yea I got the easy one, got the college and one of the players of the second, and had nothing for the other two. So probably the same as most fans as Phil points out.

    What is THE baseball highlight?

    I still can't believe HOU came back to win that series. At the time I thought that was the most devastating and demoralizing homer I'd ever seen, and figured no way in hell any team could come back from that. I know baseball isn't exactly the same as other sports but still, major props to the...

    High-Class Problems: Worst Blunders of the Henry Era

    My #1 and it's not close. I'll never understand it and it has drastically reduced my enjoyment of NESN broadcasts. Nothing else ownership has done negatively has had such an impact. Edited to add: such a first-world sports problem which just goes to show how amazingly fortunate we have been...
