    A Tip of the Cap to Mr. Castiglione

    Father and (mostly) brother, both named Frank, were my dermatologists for many years.

    A Tip of the Cap to Mr. Castiglione

    Same here. Back in the 1980s, every summer I'd visit my grandparents cottage in northern Maine close to the Canadian border and spend weeks there. No tv, two decades pre-internet, but every night Joe and Ken Coleman would come on WTIC to call the Red Sox game (much static some nights, crystal...

    NESN will show Red Sox home games in 4K HDR in 2022

    Take it FWIW, but Fenway on the Bruins forum at hfboards, who I believe does tv production for Bruins games, posted the other day that YouTube TV and NESN are close to an agreement.

    Jerry Remy Has Passed Away

    So, I’ve been thinking about Jerry and his impact. On me, specifically. I’m in my 50s, so getting older. For the last 25+ years I’d go to sleep listening to Jerry and whomever his partner was, though mostly Don. It was very comforting to hear a familiar voice as I went to sleep. Prior to that...

    NFL: Week 3 Game Thread

    I don’t think the 506sports map is correct for Connecticut either as the Fox affiliate has the Giants listed.

    Week 1 NFL Game Thread

    I have family in Stratford (Fairfield County) and they don't get the Hartford CBS affiliate on their cable system, instead the CBS affiliate out of New York. The next town further north, Milford (New Haven County), gets CBS-Hartford.

    Pats Draft Poll

    I still believe Jimmy G. will be the QB next year, so no reason to spend a lot of draft ammo to move up. And while not a choice in the poll, but if one of the top-5 QBs slide to 15, I could see that being the pick. Otherwise, I like the idea of moving down to later in the first while also...

    Pats QB Options

    I'm going to take a contrarian view. I still believe Jimmy G is the target, with a Mills or Monds or one of the second tier quarterbacks drafted and seasoned for a couple years with the hope they succeed Jimmy G down the road. This team is built to win now. And the offense is built for power...

    The Game Ball Thread: Wk.1 vs Phins

    The OL - plenty of room to run and Cam had time to throw. Wino - already mentioned. Izzo and Onwenu. They each helped in the short-yardage game.

    Cavs Sign Tacko Fall

    New Haven had a USBL team at the time and a couple of us went to the old New Haven Coliseum to see the Rhode Island team just for the spectacle. Bol played college ball at the University of Bridgeport so there was media hype about his return. I remember we were disappointed that Spud Webb didn't...

    RIP Bill Buckner

    The ovation he received when he returned in 1990 was really special. I know that ground ball will live in infamy, but the man played hard and played hurt and deserves to be remembered as the tough, good ball player he was for the Red Sox.

    Thank you, Malcolm Mitchell

    He spoke at my wife's elementary school last spring. He told the students the inspiring story about his life growing up and then read his book aloud to the school. We got to meet him afterward as he signed copies of the book and he came across as a generally great guy and role-model. Too bad his...
