Patriots Fans Respond To Jets ‘Cheaters’ Ban; Fly 4 Banners

OK, so maybe there wasn’t an actual plane flying the New England Patriots’ 4 Super Bowl banners over Jets practice today. But after some Jets Fanboys wasted their money on a ‘cheaters’ banner this morning – this Photoshop is a lot cheaper way to get the point across that the J-E-T-S suck, suck, suck. And to reiterate that point even further, I present you with this awesome...

RT @beecee5: @stoolpresidente @FeitsBarstool Brady to Edelman to Brady pic.twitter.com/y1Fy2LZ5HR — David Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) July 30, 2015 Sick 1-handed grab for a guy who is facing a 4-game suspension, federal court case, media blitz, potential loss of millions of dollars and who has his reputation on the line.

Bill Burr Rips NFL Over Deflategate At Live Show In Boston

Stand-up comedian, Bill Burr, recently finished a 10-day tear of double-shows at the Wilbur Theater in Boston. As a native of Massachusetts, the DeflateGate controversy couldn’t have come at a better time for the California transplant’s tour to come back home. Without completely spoiling the bit, just be prepared for Bill Burr to call Jim Irsay the c-word, comment on the ridiculousness...

Video: Trailer For New Whitey Bulger Movie, “Black Mass”

Kind of a weak trailer if you ask me. The featured scene with Johnny Depp playing Whitey Bulger asking about a family recipe and likening it to snitching will probably be an intense part of the movie (or at least would have been), but it was a little dry for a trailer to get people excited about a movie which should/will feature a lot of action. Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger though...

President Obama Tells Gronk To Keep His Shirt On

You gotta love Gronk; frat house or the White House, he still has the same goofy attitude and is always part of the fun. Gronk doesn’t care about politics, policy or partisan B.S. Gronk just wants to have a good time photobombing our nation’s President.

VIDEO: 2015 Boston Snow ‘Sports’ Highlight Reel

Because this didn’t come with the disclaimer that no one was hurt in the making of these videos, I’m going to assume a lot of people got hurt. Not to be Debbie Downer but I’ve lived in the city for almost 10 years now and I couldn’t tell you where things like fire hydrants, curbs and other hazards are when there isn’t snow. I get faked out by the open spot (crap, there’es...

VIDEO: Drunk Driver Flies Off Boston I-93 Onto Lower Deck

The media has been focusing on how the barrier failed and how this could have happened. Look, I get it. We need to make sure that the barriers we install are doing their job. But let’s be rational here. The story isn’t that snow packed on a barrier won’t stop a speeding truck. The story that we should be focusing on is that Vannak Sao was drunk and has a history of speeding...

Belichick, Popovich For President, VP In 2016

The Presidential election is right around the corner and some of the potential candidates include the likes of Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush and god forbid, Sarah Palin, in 2016. As an independent who’s not a huge fan of any of those politicians, I’m going out on a limb and voting for Bill Belichick and Gregg Popovich in 2016. Watching the two coaches...

It’s a great NHL hit with a terrible result for David Krejci and the Boston Bruins. Alexander Steen had his head down leaving the neutral zone with a “buddy pass” just hitting his stick in a tie game in the 2nd period of a must-win game for the fledgling Bruins. Even the least physical of NHL players know to step up on that player in that situation. Unfortunately for Krejci...

Welcome to World War Three, Did You Get The Memo?

  When we think of world war, most of us think of the horrible atrocities wrought by bombs and guns and planes, pitting soldier against soldier in mortal combat. War evokes images of pain and suffering, of bombed out homes and prisoners in cages. What does not normally come to mind is the vision of a sloppy IT employee forgetting to remove access to privileged databases, or the...
