Burning Questions and Bold Predictions: MLB 2011

Posted March 31, 2011 by JDWC

Tomorrow is arguably the best day of the year. No, it’s not Christmas. Not the first day of Spring Break. And Dos Equis is certainly not shipping free barrels of Lager to my house. But sports fans, rejoice! Tomorrow is Opening Day for Major League Baseball! We are on the precipice of an uninterrupted seven [...]

Calling the Wambulance: Jonathan Papelbon

Posted September 28, 2010 by JDWC

Everyone who watches sports, plays sports, used to play sports; they have all had problems with officiating. Fans and athletes (humans in general) are inherently biased. If the 49ers have a pass interference penalty called against them, I ignore the actual rules and list all the reasons why Nate Clements was not at fault. Naturally, [...]

A Red Sox Fan’s Tongue-Biting Tribute to Mariano Rivera

Posted June 30, 2009 by BostonMac

By Ryan McGowan Mariano Rivera notched his 500th career save last weekend against the Richmond Braves New York Mets. Back in the 90’s, or even as recently as 2003, such an event would have been greeted in Red Sox Nation with snotty, sarcastic dismissals and whiny, insecure hating.  New England would have made a collective [...]

Yankees Passed Over by Evolution like the Damn Dirty Apes They Are

Posted April 27, 2009 by BostonMac

By Ryan McGowan It’s only April, of course.  And I know that you can’t win the division in April (but you could lose it – see New York Yankees, 2007). But is there any doubt after the Red Sox swept the Yankees (as well as their recent nine-game homestand) that the chasms between these two [...]

In honor of the New Year: 50 Personal Sports Blessings

Posted January 1, 2009 by mw2828

Well, we have survived another year. Many things have changed, but most fire hydrants remain the same, at least where I live. I will be going out and getting drunk on this grand day. When the masses drink, I join. Who am I to question this sweet ritual? I do not relish being out and [...]

A Tale of Two Cities: Schilling’s shocking discovery of New York-Boston animosity

Posted September 11, 2008 by YankTank

“Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something.” -Plato Curt Schilling reminds me of the generic and requisite Real World stock character: the cantankerous jackass who falsely assumes his “candor” is anything more than pathetic and offensive white noise. The guy whose audition tape sounds something like, [...]

Manny (Brett- and Chichester) being Manny (Brett- and Chichester)

Posted August 11, 2008 by BostonMac

By Ryan P. McGowan They say celebrities always die in threes, such as my personal favorite celeb death trio: Jacques Cousteau, Jimmy Stewart, and Gianni Versace in June/July 1997.   And since Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes died within one day of each other, if you’re an overweight, middle-aged black comedian, I’d make sure you [...]
