The Real (Sports) Boston Tea Party

The Boston Sports Tea Party A.B. I’m on the record saying Manny Ramirez is my favorite baseball player of all time – and I’m sticking with it. So I have to disagree with the artist on that point. Ya I know, he left poorly. But he also left us with 2 world series rings. One being the first in 86 years. Trade Manny for a Montreal Canadien and this picture would be hanging in...

Benoit Pouliot’s Smoking Hot (Ex?) Girlfriend

25stanley.com: [translated from French using Google Translate] Well, I know it’s been a few times that I deal with Benoit Pouliot on the blog, but what do you want, it seems to be one of the few in the NHL has shared many wonderful moments on beaches. It is true that with a shape of fire (especially his girlfriend), it would pocket to hide that...

A Young Tom Brady & Peyton Manning Eating Together

Young Future Hall Of Famers A.B. No breaking news here. No real story either. Just pretty cool to see 2 of the greatest QB’s of all time sitting down for lunch together early in their careers. In a few years we will be calling them hall of famers. In 2012 hopefully we will watch them battle for a trip to the Super Bowl. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName...

Boston Bruins Nathan Horton Looks Like Descendant Of George Washington

The Southie St. Patty’s Day Bacardi Bottle As Big As A House

A.B. St. Patty’s Day 2012. Woke up at 9am. Checked on the grill, set up the beer pong table and added ice to the keg. Normal St. Patty’s morning. That was until I turned to walk inside my apartment and thought I was tripping on acid. Better yet, I thought I was living out a scene from Contact. What is that? Bacardi Bottle In Southie? It looked like a giant bottle of Bacardi....

Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask Continues Charity Work

Bruins.nhl.com: After making a trip to Engine 7 Wednesday, Boston Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask headed to the Children’s Hospital Boston on Thursday afternoon. Getting in the holiday sprit, the Savonlinna, Finland, native held off on the Black & Gold and instead opted for his Bruins Saint Patrick’s Day jersey. Along with that, he sported a green leprechaun hat – complete...

Drunk Old Guy Drinking A Flask At Boston Bruins Game

Too Old To Care A.B. This pretty much sums up how the Bruins’ season is going right now. This guy couldn’t even wait for St. Patty’s Day to drown his sorrows. Nope. He had to risk being booted from the game just to blackout as fast as possible on warm Wild Turkey. And that’s not a casual flask sip or sneaky-pour-some-booze-in-your-pepsi type of move. That’s a let’s get...

Caption Contest: Tuukka Rask As A Boston Firefighter

Your Caption Here! A.B. Although Tuukka’s job is safe with Turco playing like crap, it looks like he’s found a backup career just in case. Can you imagine having your house catch on fire and having Tuukka show up at your door like this? Would the EMT team be Blaine Lacher, Jim Carey & Jon Casey? Would Reggie Lemin be the ambulance driver? One can only dream. ENTER YOUR CAPTION...

Tom Brady vs. Joe Montana vs. Peyton Manning vs. Eli Manning

2 Of The Best Ever A.B. I could sit here all day and talk about how I think Brady will go down as the best quarterback ever and how Eli Manning sucks. But why waste all that time and effort when I am an admitted homer and the stats tell the true tale? (relax NY, Eli doesn’t suck) But before releasing the numbers I do have a point to make that I think is lost on many NFL fans in...

2012 Boston Red Sox Spring Training JetBlue Park Picture Tour

Green Monster Jr. A.B. Last year I decided to give Red Sox Nation a tour of Red Sox Spring Training from a fan’s perspective. At the time I didn’t realize it would be the last Sox spring at City of Palms Park in Ft. Myers. Good timing on my part I suppose. So picking up where I left off, this year I was lucky enough to attend game 5 at the beautiful brand new JetBlue Park, Fenway...

Boston’s New Ray Allen: A High School Girl Named Nicole

Win or lose tonight — the Andover High girls basketball team is the favorite against Braintree in the Eastern Mass. final — my educated guess is this won’t be the last time you see her picture or...

Why Are Miami Dolphins Advertising At JetBlue Park, Fenway South?

Miami Dolphins In Fenway South A.B. Yes I know, the Red Sox have spring training in Florida. The Miami Dolphins play in Florida. Should be a no brainer, right? But if you have ever been to Red Sox spring training (new stadium or old) you have noticed the Stop & Shop, Sullivan Tire and other New England ONLY company ads, thousands of miles away in the sunshine state.

Gronk Madden Cover To Be? NFL.com: Rob Gronkowski is aware of the so-called Madden Curse and its ill effects on a long list of NFL stars, but the Patriots tight end is throwing caution to the wind in a full-force effort to become EA Sports’ “Madden NFL 13″ cover boy. Gronk and wideout Wes Welker are in the running to represent New England in this year’s fan-driven cover contest...

Top 5 Hottest Boston Red Sox Wives

A.B. My judgement skills are flawed. I can’t make a decision here. A top 10 NHL hockey jerseys list, no problem. But ordering Red Sox wives for some reason leaves me with a serious case of writers block. I think it’s because I can’t separate them from their husbands or the scenarios. Like being introduced by Donald Trump makes me want to drop Lindsay Buchholz to #5. But she...

The Craziest Rant Ever: Man Snaps In Public (NSFW)

A.B. My jaw hit the floor multiple times. “Ronald Regan is a diseased midget steeped in chocolate slimfast.” This can’t be real. This has to be a dare.

Would You Drink The New Coors Iced Tea?

Gross Or Great? Dailyfinance.com: Molson Coors Brewing (TAP) is introducing Coors Light Iced T next month. The beverage will be sold in aluminum cans similar to its existing beer offerings, and rightfully so. Despite the “iced tea” implied by its moniker, this citrus-like brew will pack a roughly 4% alcohol punch. A.B. I think I like the advertisement & the idea of this...

Marty Turco With Team Canada Mask At First Boston Bruins Practice

Bruins Spoked B, Team Canada Mask A.B. I love Turco rocking the Team Canada mask at his first Boston Bruins practice. First, it’s a statement to the team & staff: “I was Canada’s goalie in the ’06 Winter Olympics. This aint my first rodeo. Let’s go win some games.” I Love it. Second, the vast majority of Bruins players are from Canada. They could care less about Timmy...

Boston Runs On Red Sox A.B. So I’m headed to Ft. Myers on Friday for Red Sox Spring Training with my pops. It’s kind of a new tradition, in the second year. More than anything it’s a time for father-son to get away from all the B.S. and do what father & sons have been doing for 100+ years; drink beer and watch baseball. And being the incredible son I am (and never missing...

Boston Bruins’ David Krejci Hat Trick Pucks (3/1/12)

Hat Trick Pucks, Including OT Winner A.B. Nice to see Krejci dominate a regular season game like that. The obvious knock on Krejci is that he coasts for large portions of the NHL regular season and then turns it on when it matters most. And while it is nice to know he is a superstar in the clutch, it’s fun to watch him beat up on the Devils in March as well. Let’s just hope he...
