    Use even the most tangential connection to share an anecdote, John Bagley stories preferred

    Nice recall. Tragically, Chung was killed in a car accident a couple years ago after completely turning his life around. Stupid Durfee kept taking out the best of those Lowell High teams in the tournament. The Lowell holiday tournament was awesome. Got to see Rumeal, Travis Best, etc. Great...

    Use even the most tangential connection to share an anecdote, John Bagley stories preferred

    Sorry for the late reply, just catching up on this fantastic thread. Thanks for all the stories. But about Stapleton, I was in eighth grade his senior year at LHS. During the state tournament he hit a teardrop to beat Don Bosco in the closing seconds. Mike Lynch, the channel 5 sportscaster...

    What do the Pats do at 23?

    I went to the Michigan-ND game last year (in the unreal rain). Not a big fan of either team so I had no expectations and found that I could not take my eyes off of Uche. Walked out of there saying to my friends that I hope he ends up on the Pats.

    Bruins Prospect News and Notes

    I saw Beecher live earlier in the season and I think the bolded is right. Size and speed as advertised but I was surprised at his vision. Better team and that would translate to more points.

    2020 TB12: The Decision 2020

    Thank you for this. I cannot believe how little you hear this sentiment. I am glad the Celtics never traded Bird and don't want to see Brady in another uniform. No matter what that does to the cap or following few seasons. Thankfully, he looks like he is still the best option so as fans we...

    2019 Pats: In-Season Roster & Injury Discussion

    Figured this was an appropriate time to make a rare post.

    Are there other dads in the same boat? I was in the exact same situation six or seven years ago with the kids getting into a hockey in a hockey town. I did a clinic to get the basics down but then ended up hooking up with 5 or 6 other dads that also wanted to learn to play. We started renting...

    Belgium: The only Red Devils worth supporting

    Literally this morning I put a Duvel beer glass I bought in Belgium in 1991 into my daughter's school bag as a prop for the country report she is doing on Belgium this Friday (She is in fifth grade so that third grade shit is pretty advanced). She picked Belgium because my Mom was born in...

    Celtics 16/17 Roster and Assets

    Absolutely. But I don't think Westbrook gets you there with the rosters GS and Cleveland are rolling. I would rather gamble on the Nets picks panning out then adding another star to Westbrook along with Westbrook signing up long term.

    Celtics 16/17 Roster and Assets

    Agreed. Particularly with long odds of winning a title in that time frame with GS and the Cavs loaded. C's are in a good but weird place being a good team now but I think the best C's team with the current roster and assets is a couple years away. Not getting Durant makes me not want to give...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

      Federal Rule 26(b)(4) was amended in 2010 to make draft expert reports (as well as most communications between counsel and the expert) protected from discovery.  Ends all the games that were played to avoid draft reports having to be turned over.

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    I've had the exact same experience in SDNY but with a different judge (not a he).  Intense oral argument based on three page pre-motion letters.  My  cases are in a lot of different districts and this is the only one that had arguments before the briefs were filed but it seems to be a consistent...

    The Game Ball Thread: We're On to the Super Bowl

    And his blocking. When the game was still in doubt he opened a few gigantic holes.

    Hi Tony--Good luck with the rink, you (and more importantly, your son) will love it.  I have built one about the same size for the last four years (my kids are now 11, 10 and 7) and the neighborhood kids skate on it constantly, great to get them outside in the winter.  The hardest part is the...

    Patriots moving to a full zone blocking scheme?

    Sorry for the dumb question KFP but what is the difference for an interior lineman (particularly the guards) in a pure power scheme from three responsibilities you list in the zone scheme?  Or is there a difference?    Thanks, this is interesting because I agree on a lot of the pressure up the...

    Game 7 - Bruins @ Canucks - Protect the Civic

    I don't have a stanley cup to not touch but I do have the remains of a bottle of jwblue that I won on a bet with a yankees fan in 04. I only drink from it after championships. It is taunting me...good luck everyone.

    Game 7 - Bruins @ Canucks - Protect the Civic

    TFP, great post. It has inspired my first post* in this forum to thank all the RMPS regulars for the dedication and hilarity over the last few years. I have enjoyed the hell out of the Kessel trade thread and the subsequent keepers of the pick threads. You guys are true fans and deserve this...

    Joe Posnanski: Lord of Lists

    Another great effort from Joe P., this time on the Mitch Albom winning the Red Smith Award controversy. Lot of different articles from good writers on the topic but Joe takes a very honest perspective on a guy he doesn't like at all: http://joeposnanski....e-atomic-albom/
