1st Person Video Snowboarding Beacon Hill, Boston After Nemo Snowstorm

A.B. Andrew Ching created a Youtube account on February 11, 2013 just to post this video of him shredding the gnar gnar in Beacon Hill. I’d say not a bad debut considering Rick Macomber, a Director of Photography, aired this on CBS Boston’s noon show.

The Improper Bostonian Cover Shoot With Bruins’ Tyler Seguin (Video)

From Tony Kress on Vimeo.   A.B. This one is for all the ladies out there. I don’t want to jump the gun but Seguin might soon take over Brady’s spot on top as Boston’s female fan favorite. Another Cup before another Lombardi might sway the vote… Sidenote – I wish I was a fly on the Bruins locker room wall for when his teammates catch wind of this. Although, Patrice...

Boston Resident Writes Note To Driver On Freshly Shoveled Parking Spot

A.B. Before I google-mapped this address to Orient Heights, I would have bet my life savings that this wasn’t Southie. Everyone knows that in Southie you just leave a beach chair and if someone takes your spot – you slash their tires (and/or neck). Source: Bostonography

The 10 Best And Worst Boston Sports Legend Tattoos Of All Time

A.B. With the Boston Bruins, Celtics, Red Sox and New England Patriots all winning (at least) 1 championship since 2000, there have been a lot of bandwagon fans (i.e. Pink Hats) coming out of the woodwork. But while any average Joe can buy a Bruins t-shirt or put a Red Sox sticker on their minivan, it takes a special type of fan to tattoo a Boston sports legend on their body. We’ve...

Tim Thomas Traded By The Boston Bruins And Is Now A Black Guy

  A.B. This is why I love reddit so much lately. Some dude who goes by the name Atoasterstruedel with an absolute gem of a find. If it were Chara being traded (knock on wood) with a black guy’s face it wouldn’t be nearly as funny. But with the whole “Tim Thomas is a racist and hates Obama because he is black” rumor going around just makes this pure gold. I just hope this...

Curt Schilling: Members Of Red Sox Organization Encouraged PED Use

WEEI: Curt Schilling, in a Wednesday interview on ESPN Radio, said toward the end of his tenure with the Red Sox he was encouraged to use PEDs by “members of the organization.” “At the end of my career, in 2008 when I had gotten hurt, there was a conversation that I was involved in in which is was brought to my attention that this is a potential path I might want to pursue...

Richard Tisei Will Not Run For John Kerry’s Massachusetts Senate Seat

Politico.com: Richard Tisei, one of the Republicans’ best hopes for the now-longshot Massachusetts Senate special election after Scott Brown took a pass, announced Saturday night that he too will sit out the race. A.B. Richard Tisei, the former gubernatorial running mate of Charlie Baker, passes on a potential bid for the senate spot left by John Kerry. Probably a smart move....

Former Celtic Ray Allen’s North End Condo For Sale For $3 Million

NESN: Ray Allen is back at it again on the real estate market, selling his last foundation in Boston, the harbor-view condo located in the North End. In his latest listing, the former Celtic is hoping for $2.99 million in exchange for a 1,831-square-foot home, according to Business Insider. A.B. I guess this means Ray Ray is never coming back. And I don’t mean he’s never playing...

This “The Town” T Shirt From BruinsLife.com Is Absolute Fire

A.B. There’s a fine line between homer apparel and pink hat apparel. The kid wearing a pre-faded Old Navy Boston Red Sox shirt is a pink-hat. The kid wearing the same faded shirt, except it was made by Jerzees in 1985, is a die hard Sox fan. To a casual observer they are both blue, both faded and both have the Red Sox B. But one went through Buckner, Boggs and Beckett – the other...

According To His Dog, Tyler Seguin Was A Fireman For His 21st Birthday

    A.B. As a dog lover I truly believe they are man’s best friend. Dogs are loyal and loving and are happy to see you every time you come home. That being said, dogs can also be bastards. Sometimes they rip apart your couch, sometimes they eat their own poop and sometimes they just won’t leave you alone. But Tyler Seguin’s brown lab has taken being a “bad dog’ to...

Some Kid Hanging Upside Down On A Boston MBTA Train

H/T AustinBakos Instagram A.B. I’ve seen, read and heard about weird and shocking things on the MBTA trains in Boston. AwkwardTransit has most of the bases covered. But while this isn’t gross, dangerous or overwhelming, it’s pretty ballsy considering the way the trains in Boston move. One second you are hanging upside down on the handrail, having a great time – one turn and...

Tyler Seguin Scores Twice In Shootout Due To Fan Throwing A Hot Dog

A.B. Clearly this Bruins or Devils “fan” needs to be banned from the TD Garden for the season, if not for life. But I’m not mad at the drunken bastard. Anytime I get to see Tyler Seguin get an extra shootout attempt is cool with me. If the Seguin didn’t score the second time around, maybe I’d feel differently but he did. So relax Bruins fans, Tyler just got a little more...

Mark Wahlberg Begins Filming New Show “Breaking Boston”

The show, being produced by Mark Wahlberg , started shooting at the Nashua Street Jail, and we’re told things got pretty lively. Called a “docu-series” by Wahlberg, the show is inspired by the shrill, foul-mouthed sisters in “The Fighter”...

2 Chicks Fighting Erupts Into Boston Street Brawl

A.B. I come across Boston fight videos on Youtube daily. In my experience 99.9% of the time the videos suck. Youtube users are notorious for putting the word FIGHT in the title to get clicks. But let’s face it, two 15 year old suburbanites reenacting the WWE in their backyard is not the type of fight video that goes viral. This chick brawl though? Weave pulling + bra & thong...

Mayor Menino Being Mumbles: Vince Wilcott & Gonk

A.B. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has been affectionately known by Bostonians as “Mumbles” for many years now.
