Bruins Forward Reilly Smith Got A Parking Boot For Christmas

Santa got me a boot pic.twitter.com/ojSCRjBsFO — Reilly Smith (@reillysmith18) December 26, 2014 If you didn’t wake up to a bright orange warning sticker on your windshield and big metal boot on your Land Rover rim, then you had a better day-after Christmas than Bruins forward, Reilly Smith.

Video: NHL Players’ Favorite Holiday, Thanksgiving vs. Christmas

The NHLPA recently released a video on Youtube of NHL players including Patrice Bergeron, P.K. Subban and Taylor Hall weighing in on if Christmas or Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday. Of course Christmas won the competition in a landslide, not only because it’s the holiday you get presents, but because some of the players in the video are European and NEWSFLASH don’t have...

Watch: Rondo Send Off Video Tribute From Comcast Sportsnet

This video tribute from CSNNE is short but sweet, sort of like Rondo’s career in Boston. After 8.5 years of playing for the Celtics in Boston, Rajon Rondo leaves behind a legacy of 4 All Star nods, a handful of franchise records and an NBA Championship in 2008. Some Bostonians loved him, others not so much. But regardless of your feelings about the guy (by the way, if his charitable...

Photo Of The Day: Kraft & Belichick On Sideline With Bon Jovi

As you might have guessed from the post title, this is a picture of New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, and coach, Bill Belichick, with rock star Jon Bon Jovi on the sideline of MetLife stadium. Bon Jovi is from New Jersey and Kraft & Belichick are huge fans, making the opportunity for an on-field visit and seat in the owner’s box a no-brainer. It’s not the first...

Drunk Patriots Fan Gets Showered With Nachos By Jets Fan

Since the Meadowland Meatheads have nothing to cheer about on the football field, I can’t really blame them for celebrating a nacho attack more accurate than any throw Geno Smith has ever made for the Jets. When your team is 2-13 and banners calling for your GM’s head are flying over their practices, you need to take your anger out on something or someone. “God Maserati...

VIDEO: Matt Bartkowski Knocks Brian Gionta Out Of Game

Matt Bartkowski is 6’1″, Brian Gionta is 5’7″. A lot of hits on Gionta are going to be high due to the simple fact that his head lines up with the shoulders of most NHL players (or rib cage if you are Chara). So if the outrage and resulting fallout over this hit Bartkowski laid on Gionta is that it was a high hit, then I’m not buying. However if the league doles out...

Michael Vick On TMZ: When I Play Madden, I Use Tom Brady

Michael Vick just ripped himself pretty good, and not just because he admitted to using a quarterback other than himself when playing Madden. That is actually a no-brainer considering he is a part-time starting QB who has only thrown 3 touchdown passes all year. I’m guessing in Madden he is pretty average and who plays video games to be mediocre? The reason that Vick says he...

Looks Like A New Dunkin’ Donuts Is Coming To Southie

The hearing list for the Licensing Board for the City of Boston this morning included an application for a Common Victualler License to operate a Dunkin’ Donuts on 77 L Street in South Boston. Upon seeing this application I wondered what “Yuppies” and “locals” might think about this request for yet another Dunkies in Southie… To start, I hate being called a Yuppy just...

One Star Yelp Reviews Of All 31 NFL Stadiums

Imgur user cjfitz92 recently uploaded a gallery of all 31 NFL stadiums with corresponding actual 1-star Yelp reviews emblazoned on the images. The result is both funny and ruthless, pathetic and sad, depending on which NFL stadium is being reviewed. One of my favorites, for the Browns’ FirstEnergy Stadium reads, “Another shrine to mediocrity built on the backs of the taxpayer...

Photo(s) Of The Day: Boston Made Out Of Gingerbread Houses

Have you ever wondered what Boston would look like if it was made completely out of gingerbread houses? Ya, me neither. But since tonight is the first night of Hanukkah and Christmas is 9 days away, let’s all get in the (delicious) holiday spirit for the 3rd annual gingerbread house exhibit at the Boston Society of Architects’ gallery.

Oh. Christmas Tree. Boston’s Can-Am Connection.

Did I ever tell you kids of the proud history of the beautiful gift of a Christmas tree that finds it’s way to Boston Common each holiday season? Last week, December 4th, was the tree lighting at the Common, the 43rd in a row to feature a tree donated from Nova Scotia. The tree is a gift from the government of Halifax in appreciation for the aid that Boston sent them after the...

VINE: Tom Brady’s Electric 17-Yard Run Against Dolphins

A lot of commentary this morning about Tom Brady’s 17-yard first down run last night is comical. From Julian Edelman to Drew Bledsoe (who was in attendance yesterday), people are joking about how slow Brady looked. For a 37-year old quarterback who has never been particularly mobile, it’s of course, all in good fun. Aside from the good natured rubs though, the run and especially...

According to ESPN Boston, “Boston is the front-runner to host the 2016 Winter Classic outdoor game.” The last 6 locations of the NHL’s Winter Classic were Ralph Wilson Stadium...

Do You Know The Story About The Net Bobby Orr Scored “The Goal” On?

  I was born in the 80′s so I first witnessed Bobby Orr’s “The Goal” about 16 years after it was already in the history books. That being said, raised as a Boston Bruins fan, Orr’s Stanley Cup winning goal in 1970 is burned into my, and Boston’s, collective memory forever. That’s why there’s a statue of this special moment outside of the TD Garden. But what...

Gronk Featured On New ESPN Magazine Cover With Kittens

The last time Rob Gronkowski was featured on the cover of ESPN Magazine, he was 90% naked for The 2012 Body Issue. This time, for the December 2014 cover, Gronk is cuddling up to some kittens and a leather jacket, among other “props.” Of course Gronk managed to get shirtless for this shoot as well but clearly the cats are the star of the show.

A Look At Celtics Players As Assets

It’s been a very strange season for the Boston Celtics. After the “Big Three” years, the team certainly looks as if it lacks talent. The truth is, second-year head coach Brad Stevens has done a pretty solid job of maximizing mid-level talent. The team isn’t about to make the playoffs—even in a weak (though improving) Eastern Conference—but the Celtics at least remain...
