    Easiest SmartPhone To Use For a Novice

    I'm 79, my wife's Moto just died (11 years old!) and her whole family uses iphones, so we're going that way. Either 13 mini or 13 max.

    Moving over to Hoops, St. Louis could conceivably had a front line of Petit, Russell and Naulls.

    Let's Predict the 2022 Red Sox Season

    My East prediction: Toronto NYY Tampa Bay Boston Baltimore I just don't think the Sox are taking things seriously this year. Maybe a Correa would improve the odds.

    Red Sox in season discussion

    I hope we don't get Story. His Road stats are poor.

    Tracking the rookie QBs

    I watched Jones in College and saw him lobbing soft passes to the hands of receivers in tight spots. I thought "he's doing it just like Brady." Now he's starting to throw longer, again like Brady. He was my #1 choice at QB. I was ecstatic when we got him.

    Worst In Game Pitching Decision In Red Sox History

    After the initial homer, it was obvious Robles didn't have his stuff. After the double following it, he should have been yanked. I had a terrible feeling TB was going to get 4 more runs that inning. Cora left him in WAAAY too long.

    Washington Football Team is now the Washington Commanders

    I still like "Redskins" with a picture of a peanut. Obviously not a serious contender.

    The Babe in color.

    Notice also: (1) how much the batters move out of the box when they swing and (2) those gloves, without connected fingers. The first baseman's mitt is a modified catcher's mitt; I remember those back in the late 40s -early 50s

    The greatest two-way player ever?

    brs3 and others: My father used to tell me about the Negro teams who played against major leagues in the offseason. Those barnstorming MLB players often said thier competition was equal to any MLB players. They were both all-star caliber.

    Celtics sign Jabari Parker

    A couple of memories from the '50s: Heinsohn's jump shot was both from behind his head and had a flat trajectory and Big Wilt used to hit all his free throws in practice. (Damn I loved those double headers in MSG)

    RIP Elgin Baylor

    Thank you Kliq for a great post. One item about Baylor was his nickname, "Tick Tok". He had a head tick (something I suffered for many years) and I was surprised when I found that his tick was known to the players and commented upon. When you see his highlights, you'll notice that motion.

    KC Jones has died

    KC and Sam Jones were the Celtics second backcourt in the '50s. Cousy & Sharman were the first. But as time went on, the Jones's were getting better. One season, when Jerry West averaged around 31 PPG, I remember KC holding him to an average of around 18 PPG that season.

    Red Sox accept White House invitation

    Glad to see this. About time our teams (any teams) acted mature and not as spoiled infants.

    World Series 2018--Red Sox vs. Dodgers

    Now, imagine 1918. It's 2018. The next title would be in 2104! That brings home just how long that gap was. Hopefully, our next title will be in 2019.

    Better anthem choices than James Taylor

    The single best National Anthem I've heard is by Toxic Audio, an acappella group. Brings me to tears every time.
