Can You Name All 30 Of The Minimalist NHL Logos Without Using Google?

A.B. NHL die-hards should breeze through this no problem. The casual hockey fan may have a little more trouble. I can’t figure out top row, 4th from the left. 29/30 ain’t bad.

UniversalHub: A nice local Dorchester woman reports on her Sunday afternoon drive through Southie: “Driving by the L Street bathhouse I spied a yuppie waiting for the light… So I drove through a puddle and splashed the hell out of her.” A.B. The whole yuppie vs. townie thing has gotten old. Who really cares where you were born and if someone moves into your neighborhood? If...

The Real Reason The Celtics Seem Better Without Rondo

Photo: ESPN   A.B. Everywhere you look some idiot somewhere is talking about how the Celtics might be better without Rondo. They will site things like, “The Celtics are 15-7 this season without Rondo, and 12-4 since he went down”. They might even look at the statistics of the team and individual players while he’s been out. The problem with these numbers is they do not take...

The Onion Exposes Boston’s Dirty Little Secret

A.B. Once again the City of Boston finds itself in the eye of the online storm. Thankfully this time it’s not because we freaked out about some lite-brites promoting a mediocre cartoon. Nope, this week Boston is the butt of a (brilliant) joke from the fine folks at The Onion, making fun of us for pretending that Boston is a real city. The Globe attempted a humorous response...

Yankees vs. Red Sox Fan Brutal Knock Out Video

A.B. A lot of things in this video don’t add up. First, I don’t understand how this is a yankees vs. Red Sox fight. I didn’t see a single jersey or hat or hear anyone yelling about their teams. Second, the video description reads, “Redsox fax is drunk and gets rowdy. soon as he touches Yankee female fan, he gets crushed by yankee fan….” Unless I am visually dyslexic...

Boston Bruins Place Chris Bourque On Waivers

BOS puts Chris Bourque on waivers. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) March 7, 2013 A.B. After playing 18 games for the Boston Bruins and logging a substantial amount of time on the power play, Chris Bourque has tallied just 4 points (3 assists, 1 goal).

2 Pictures That Sum Up Sunday’s Bruins vs. Canadiens Fight Night

A.B. The 2003 ALCS is a distant memory now. The 2010-2011 AFC Divisional Championship still hurts but it wasn’t the Super Bowl. I can finally admit it; I no longer hate the Yankees and Jets as much as I hate the Montreal Canadiens. And while I love watching the Bruins beat The Habs on the scoreboard, there is something almost equally satisfying about a Chara & Lucic pounding...

Kid Loses Pickup Basketball Bet, Jogs Through Southie In A Pink Thong

Reader Email: You have no idea how long it took me to get this video. It finally cost me a sleeve of Skoal Straight and a lot of begging. My buddy was talking smack in a pick-up basketball game in Southie. They decided loser had to run naked around the block. He was up by 2 on the last possession and the other kid stole the ball and drained a 3 right in his face to win… Enjoy...

My lineys really hot right now. And is a 12 twitter.com/tylerseguin92/… — Tyler Seguin (@tylerseguin92) February 27, 2013  A.B. It’s no secret right now that Tyler Seguin isn’t having a great start to the 2012-13 season, at least from a goal scoring perspective. With just 3 goals and 9 assists in 16 games, it doesn’t help that his line-mate & brother-by-tattoo, Brad...

The Awesome Boston Pays Tribute To The Fung Wah Bus Line

A.B. Today the federales shut down the Fung Wah bus line. They claimed that it’s because most of their fleet had cracked frames (and cracked-out customers) but I suspect that Big Bus was behind this move. Greyhound never liked the competition. In English, Fung Wah means “magnificent wind”. This term was meant to evoke the scent of the bus after 40 people scarfed down McDonald’s...

Tom Brady’s Official Facebook Page Message: “Just Win”

CBS Boston: It’s not uncommon these days for professional athletes to share nearly every detail of their lives via social media. Tom Brady doesn’t exactly fit into the group of players who tweet or share much personal information on the Internet, but the quarterback made a special exception on Monday. Brady signed a three-year contract extension worth $27 million, significantly...

  A.B. With a minimum population of 50,000 people, Massachusetts absolutely dominates the wind game. The so called “Windy City” – Chicago – doesn’t even break the top 100. For the last few years I’ve been complaining about windy winters…they suck for my combover. But at least now I know it wasn’t all in my head; Boston is the new Chicago, just minus all the murders...
