No one expected the Boston Red Sox to be this bad in 2014. Their current record is 41-51 with 3 games left against the Houston Astros before heading into the All Star break. They are currently in last place in the AL East. Players like Pedroia, Ortiz and Napoli haven’t been performing up to their normal standards.
However, with the longest season in professional sports (162 games...
Imgur author Jaydubbya has a page dedicated to the strange and the awesome. My personal favorite is the man who dresses as a turkey using just a sweater.
Today, Jaydubbya posted a gallery called “Lego Representation Of 50 States.”
Here’s the 6 New England states with a breakdown of each:
So, uh, this is a woman taking a picture of two people beating an over sized clam...
Boston Red Sox rookie outfielder, Jackie Bradley Jr., is hitting just .220 on the year, but thanks to his outfield play, he has secured the starting center field job in Boston.
Tonight in the Red Sox’ win against the White Sox, Bradley Jr., put his defense on display once again.
In the top of the 2nd inning with one on and one out, White Sox catcher, Tyler Flowers, hit a sinking...
Say what you will about the Red Sox sucking, and they do suck, but if you’re a true baseball fan in Boston, how can you not be excited about this rookie class?
Boagaerts was born in 1992. At 21, he has some issues to address like his bat speed and defensive responsibilities but the future is bright for #2.
Say what you will about JBJ at the plate, but there’s no denying that...
The Mayflower. The Pilgrims. The “Cradle of Liberty.” The Boston Massacre. The Shot Heard Round The World. The Boston Tea Party. The Battle of Bunker Hill. Paul Revere’s Ride. Evacuation Day. The Revolutionary War.
There is no place more American than Massachusetts and more specifically, Boston.
The rest of the country can hate our championship sports teams, our weird accents...
For the last few days I have been trying to build out the LinkedIn network for The Awesome Boston. I finally realized that there are a ton of bloggers/writers/ producers in Boston on LinkedIn and I’ve been trying to acquire some new talent for the site.
For the most part I have been targeting people in the sports industry. I’d say at least 90% of the posts here are sports related...
David “Big Papi” Ortiz’s formula for the US men’s soccer team to beat Belgium in their Round Of 16 matchup is quite simple:
“The US team need to hydrate more, so they can stay on the field longer… let’s kick that ass.”
How can you not take advice from a guy who spends most of his time sitting in a dugout just hit his 450th home run? I hope Jürgen Klinsmann is listening.
I learned from Mr. Baseball that when a pitcher hits a batter in Japan, it is customary to tip your hat.
Which has me wondering:
If someone hits a HR off you and then calls you an idiot 3 times on national television, you have to plunk him next time, right? It shouldn’t matter if you are Japanese and come from a more “civilized” form of baseball.
There is no way that Tanaka...
The only thing more ‘Merican than converting your old pickup truck into a giant rolling homage to your favorite footwear and favorite baseball team is if this happened in New Hampshire. The “Live Free or Die” license plate would really be the cherry on top.
Also, at first I thought the shoe was a Doc Martin, but it’s clearly a L.L. Bean winter boot (coincidence that LL Bean...
Youtuber Mikolaj.Birek just mastered the formula for an awesome YouTube video remix:
Take the technology and music style from the best decade (1980′s) and mix it together with the best show ever (Game of Thrones) and watch the hits roll in.
The only question that remains is if viewers would still enjoy Game of Thrones if the whole series was produced in the 80′s. Something...
HELP spread awareness about the Kirkwood Tickler with one of these shirts. A portion of the proceeds may or may not go towards helping his victims recover from the trauma.The more people who join the event, the cheaper they get. Stay safe. (Campus Teez)
In case you haven’t heard yet, there is a “tickler” on the loose near Boston College.
Students have reported break-ins where...
Last night, Stephanie Bertrand was in attendance at the 2014 NHL Awards with her husband, Boston Bruins froward, Patrice Bergeron.
Bergeron ended the night with two awards (Frank J Selke trophy, NHL Foundation Player Award) and the cover of the new NHL 15 EA Sports video game.
He also got to celebrate with his wife, which is arguably the biggest win of the night:
OK, so maybe it’s not the best trifecta in hockey. No one on the Bruins won the Hart or Art Ross trophies but Tuukka Rask did win the Vezina.
In addition, Patrice Bergeron won the Selke for the best 2-way play in league.
Rounding out the group of 3 was Bergeron again, but this time with an award that doesn’t come in the form of a trophy.
Instead, Bergeron was honored by being...
A lot of people would say that getting this tattoo was a horrible mistake. After all, this is a tattoo of a water bottle spraying the Canadiens logo with a helmet on.
Aside from the french manicure on the squirter’s hands, the fact that a Bruins fan now has to live with a permanent Habs logo on his body and Shawn Thornton recently being cut from the Bruins, I’m actually not...
Peter King’s latest article on The MMQB is about new Cleveland Browns head coach, Mike Pettine, who worked alongside New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan for 11 years (in both Baltimore & New York).
A lot of the article focuses on Pettine being the unlikely choice for the Browns but that he’s an underrated and potentially superstar coach in the making. It’s the typical “things...
The answer is yes, this is the most confusing parking sign in Boston.
So confusing, in fact, that I had to get nerdy and build out a timeline just to figure it out.
Basically, if you’re not a North End resident, don’t even bother parking here unless you have an errand under 15 minutes to run.
If you are a resident, make sure that you don’t hit snooze on your alarm...

I’ve heard enough of the “he’s a nice utility guy” and “hitting hot streaks don’t last forever” talk in regards to Boston Red Sox everyman, Brock Holt.
In 37 games and 151 at bats, Holt is leading the Red Sox with a batting average of .338, an OPS of .842 and 5 stolen bases. He’s second on the team with his .378 OBP as well....
Overnight Instagram graphic design celebrity AK47_studios is at it again, but this time he’s brought a friend; Vallenamark.
After increasing his instagram followers from 500 to 5,000+ in two weeks with this NHL Logos With Simpsons Characters Mashup, Mark Avery Kenny (AK47_studios) and Mark Vallena (Vallenamark) are taking on the 2014 World Cup which is currently being played...
Sports team logo mashups have been trending on the interwebs over the last few months. We’ve had Star Wars football and Game of Thrones Hockey; my personal two favorites… until today.
Continuing the trend, we are now blessed with a Simpsons/NHL mashup, courtesy of @ak47_studios.
Although the series isn’t yet complete, I will continue to update this post as this brilliant compilation...
Over the past 2 months, EA Sports, maker of the NHL video game series has been holding a bracket-style tournament for which NHL player will be featured on the cover of their NHL 15 video game.
Boston Bruins forward, Patrice Bergeron, beat Logan Couture and T.J. Oshie before advancing to the final face off against bitter rival, P.K. Subban.

Reporter: How does it feel to be a Patriot?
Darrelle Revis: “It feels great”
Interviews with New England Patriots players always seem a bit canned or pre-packaged. Bill Belichick won’t have it any other way.
So even though new Patriots cornerback, Darrelle Revis, said “I’m going to be my own guy, I’m going to do me,” his first interview as a New England Patriot went...
The Boston Red Sox organization welcomed back the World Champion 2004 Boston Red Sox team last night at Fenway Park.
Of course in typical Manny Ramirez fashion, he entered the stadium through the Green Monster door in left field, although there was no pitch being thrown at the time.
Good to see that Manny is still being Manny:
I kind of respect PK Subban more after watching this clip.
I remember seeing it live and thinking that Subban was a scumbag for throwing two cheap shot hay-makers at a player like Bergeron who is classy, well liked and well respected in the league. At the time, it didn’t add up.
Now, Subban’s actions make sense:
“I thought you were Marchy!”
If you don’t know why it matters...
I didn’t vote for Marty Walsh to be Mayor of Boston but I also didn’t not vote for him. Like too many Americans, I was too lazy or busy to hit the polling station for a Mayoral election. I know, shame on me.
When I first saw this tweet from Hockey Night In Canada, however, I became an instant Marty Walsh guy. I applauded him for honoring his bet but doing it in the most Boston...
The web developer or editor responsible for this (horribly) genius 404 error page is most certainly a New York Mets fan.
There is no excuse for any self-respecting Boston Red Sox fan to ever find humor in the biggest error in Boston sports history, even if it does make the perfect 404 page.
Grady Little would have been a better choice. At least in that scenario, the error of leaving...
