    Red Sox Greatest Hits

    a. I was there— we stayed! b. Most perfect, beautiful swing any Red Sox player has ever taken. I can see it clearly to this day without a video to remind me.

    2020 Bucs: TB12 in TB20 - How Far Do They Go?

    Tom's worth $250 million and he's earned every penny; my comment was merely about optics.

    2020 Bucs: TB12 in TB20 - How Far Do They Go?

    Thanks for the joy, Tom, but the dude lives in a bubble -- "I know so many of you are full of fear, losing your income, and not able to pay your bills, but here I am signing my new $50 million contract."

    Gone Brady Gone

    He's earned the right to do what he wants but it's very 'Mays on the Mets' to me. I'm also about 90% convinced the choice revolves around "TB" marketing. Maybe I'm cynical. Excited to see what BB can do!

    2020 TB12: The Decision 2020

    When quotes aren't taken out of context, Brady's postgame press conference felt a lot more positive than I'd imagined. Someone mentioned this upthread somewhere but it felt like he was putting the ball in their court. View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n68EF6dLUT0

    That was stupid as hell.

    HoF: Who is In?

    I forgot who posted it but in another thread a few days ago, someone made a really good case for Scar as a guy who could buck the trend of positional coaches getting little/no love. That poster should copy and paste into this thread.

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    Thanks guys. I can visualize things a bit better. Let me ask -- is there a scenario where a(n improved, matured, more polished) Tatum brings a dimension to the C's game that would be just as effective as, or effective in a different but still significant way from, what Davis could bring?

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    Can someone with a better insight into today's Xs and Os than I have (which is probably 98% of people in this forum) explain how Ainge/Stevens might envision an "Celtics with AD" to be different and, presumably, better than a "Celtics with JT"? Genuine question, not looking for any snark, etc...

    Patriots Footnotes

    Was this the first 'footnote-free' Superbowl for the Patriots?

    The Nation's Tears: Volume III

    That's the bitterest thing I've seen in ages; I laughed. Clearly sent in on deadline from her nearest Starbucks (cf. her bio).

    What will we be talking about Monday morning?

    I'm with you 100%, rather just pointing out the myopic nature of the Kellerman types of talking heads.

    What will we be talking about Monday morning?

    Yup. In the meta-media category, let's hope NE pulls it out or else Kellerman and Parker will be making their victory tours all week (and beyond). "Max...how'd you see it coming, man?!"
