    Super Bowl LV: Game Thread – Kansas City Chiefs @ Tompa Bay Bucs

    Wow - no touchdowns for KC. Might have to be a defender as MVP.

    Super Bowl LV: Game Thread – Kansas City Chiefs @ Tompa Bay Bucs

    Watching the Sky Sports feed in Europe and the crawl keeps asking "Is this the greatest matchup of QB's in Super Bowl history?". I'd say it's a bit early in Mahomes' career to afford him that status (he is great, but has to do a bit more). My top 4 (in terms of final career status, not...

    Hank Aaron has passed away

    Henry Aaron was both of his times and well ahead of them. His impact on me (and I think others of that generation based on what I'm reading here) was profound.

    Thank you, Petey: Dustin Pedroia announces his retirement

    Having Pedroia and Ortiz on your team was like Laurel and Hardy, Butch and Sundance, Lewis and Clark, pizza and beer - just great to see, to experience, to know that they were there.

    Super Bowl LV: Game Thread – Kansas City Chiefs @ Tompa Bay Bucs

    13,000 fans allowed to the game. Knowing what a typical Super Bowl ticket goes for on the resale market - if players get tickets how many game checks do you think some of these rookies could make by scalping their allotment this year?

    Classy Championship Game (NFC and AFC) Game Thread

    11/29: Cardinals at Patriots

    Sitting here staring at the screen - don't know what to write. It's almost embarrassing to win that game. But watching Redzone and this Vikings Panthers game may be even crazier.

    RIP Tommy Heinsohn

    "I'll say this about Tommy. He never shot unless he had the ball." The first Celtics coach I ever remember and someone who it was fun to listen to. Also maybe one of the great renaissance men of his time. RIP Tommy.

    2020 Pats: Belichick Breakdowns & Beatdowns

    Yesterday was not one I'd hang on Bill - I thought the execution was far more flawed than the planning. A few of my other meaningless observations here: http://sheamonu-granfalloons.blogspot.com/
