Gamer Builds New England Patriots’ Gillette Stadium On Minecraft

How Did I Miss The 2013 International Pillow Fight Day In Boston?

A.B. How did I miss an opportunity to go to a park in Boston and wail on random Bostonian hipsters with a pillow? This is the type of event that dreams are made of. I thought I was better than this, I thought I was up on current events. At the very least, I thought my subscription to Bashing Hipsters Weekly would have mentioned this at least once. Now I have to wait another 363 days...

Boston Bruins Assistant Coach Throws Earpiece Into Fan’s Beer

DiehardSport: During the Boston Bruins 3-2 shootout win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, Bruins assistant coach Geoff Ward had his earpiece start to malfunction. Understandably there was no more use for it, so he took it out. Why he decided to toss it over his shoulder into the stands once he took it out though is beyond me.

Drunk Chick On Orange Line 13-Punches Some Dude On St. Patty’s Day

A.B. I counted 13 punches. This chick was playing for keeps. All I heard was something about “calling me fat” and “spitting in my face.” Seems like a reasonable response. But the best part is that she hit the guy so many times that she actually became tired half way through the assault. Like she could have just kept going if she was in shape, but in the end sort of proved...

But after driving around for an hour and just wanting to go get hammered with his friends, half-in-the-grass parellel parking WAS the best option.
