    Celebrating What Is

    I was on a bus in Jamaica a couple of days ago. Heading from the resort to the airport and 2 10 year old boys were talking about KC sports. Batting averages, comparing teams from previous years, slugging etc. Eventually, we passed by a field of goats. One of them said "look at those goats"...

    How did you discover SoSH?

    I was at a party in '03 I believe, the sox game was on and I was talking to a guy about the defensive infield and he asked if I was a Son of Sam Horn. I checked it out after the party and started lurking.

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones

    There are some things that athletes have to be able to do. Even at my highest level (decent club teams with regional, not national aspirations) there were guys who could athletically get away from me, knowing what they were going to do and being right only helps so much. There is some value in...

    Super Bowl LV: Game Thread – Kansas City Chiefs @ Tompa Bay Bucs

    The Bucs logo is on the post of the trophy. Still, better that then one of the fans who got the Superbowl tattoo done before the game and his team lost. That's just unfortunate.

    MVP of 2004 Postseason

    Lance Armstrong? I go Ortiz for the poll. My first though when I saw the title was how is it not Papi? Obviously its a team game and no one can do it alone, there were plenty of contributors. Papi was the man.

    Football Villains

    Most (all?) of the '72 Dolphins, but especially Mercury Morris. Just for being an insufferable douche bag, not because of any particular Patriots rivalry.

    Thank You, Tom

    I thought about starting this thread, but I couldn't figure out how. It's rare that any player is around for 20 years and even most of our thank you threads are pretty long on moments. I was sure I couldn't do this one justice. It will take a while. I guess I'd like to say thanks for...

    It looks like he aims them all to about mid sternum. Maybe to make his mumbling even harder to hear?

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

    I don’t have a strong feeling, but it seems premature to be talking about going undefeated less than halfway through the season. Especially with the hardest section of the schedule coming up. If we make it to 12-0 I’d be happy to talk more about it.

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 5 at Washington

    I noticed that as well, I thought he might have been trying to avoid a flag since Brady slid but got sort of hit. My memory is that he jumped to avoid Brady but the brace caught and stopped him suddenly so the jump landed on/near Brady instead of going over him. I don't think it should have...

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 3 vs Jets

    Solid game overall. I’m hoping the offensive slowdown is due to playing more vanilla offense once they were up 3 scores and the Jets offense showing nothing I also think one of the things BB identified as a negative of the practice changes a few years ago was that it takes the o line longer to...

    Red Sox Defensive Gifs

    I love how smooth he is tracking the ball, I don't think he hits top gear because he knows he needs momentum to get there, even slows down some more as he gets close. It's a pleasure to watch that sort of play, especially when it's done almost nonchalantly. That play is basically impossible...

    Celebrating What Is

    I had almost no confidence that they had a shot going into that game, I was just happy they made it. They were massive underdogs and the Rams were a steamroller. I spent the whole game thinking we were lucky and at any moment the Rams would wake up and take it over. I thought the idea of...

    Greatest play in Patriots History?

    Not the greatest play, but one of my favorites that hasn't been mentioned yet was the Bruschi strip of Rhodes against the Colts. I think it was 2004 playoffs. That defense had many great plays, but that one was my favorite for no particular reason I can articulate. Maybe it was just the...

    Who remembers when 'The Brady Six" was a video about quarterbacks drafted before TB12? I like this version even more.

    The Game Ball Thread: AFCDG vs Chargers

    It's interesting to me how deep we are in their collective heads as well. They kept talking about how the Pats are the roadblock they need to overcome. You'd think we play them every year in the playoffs. Looks to me like the 2001, 2004 and 2016 seasons.

    I'll just leave this here, your post made me think of it again. It's been a long time since I heard this. Thanks for the laughs.

    The NFL and the National Anthem

    My favorite part of this is that the guy burning shoes because of the athlete who knelt for the anthem and so disrespected the flag is in clear violation of the Flag Code. 176 (d) to be precise (bolded mine): (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should...

    This is the best Red Sox team...ever.

    It's even worse than you think, we've lost two! That's almost twice as bad according to the statistics.

    Ultimate in 2018: Worlds, Triple Crown, AUDL, oh my

    I think this is right. In the early 2000s I had a good friend and his now wife, who played for DoG and Godiva spend a year in New Zeland. They played some down there and got invited to play on the NZ Worlds team with no connection to NZ other than they were spending some time there.
