    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. We all owe him a debt of gratitude - I tried to explain it (probably poorly) a bit in this post and I'm egotistical enough to think it...

    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. Baseball is a game of individual tasks and accomplishments but with No. 15 it always felt right to mention him as...

    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

    I have to say - kicking a field goal on that last Packer's possession never even crossed my mind until I saw the kicker take the field. Still can't fathom any good case for it. Not only are you handing the ball to the greatest QB of all time - you still need a touchdown but probably from ten...

    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.

    When did Dr. Fauci become our QB?

    Well - try explaining that game to someone.

    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/

    July/August game thread

    The Giants/Sox analogy isn't too far off. By the way - Mike Yaz is a good player. Solid. How the hell did the O's let him sit so long in their minor league system?

    Red Sox Greatest Bunt

    Lonnie’s bunt for sure. One thing I could never understand is why the final game of the ‘67 season isn’t available in full. The next to last game is (and is featured in the “Fenway 100” set) but just portions of Game 162.

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    My difficulty is with the fact that ownership is not, for lack of a better term "owning" this move. If you say "We moved Mookie because we didn't want to get in to a bidding war and spend money to send us over the tax threshold. It would not be fair to criticize us for lack of spending when we...

    2020 TB12: The Decision 2020

    I think this is correct as far as it goes but there is another (fairly large) group of people out there who know something of value, and those are the teams that know, for sure, that they are not in the market for Tom Brady. When you start to add those people in to the mix it becomes apparent...

    Super Bowl LIV: Chiefs vs 49ers Game Thread

    If Andy Reid had a monkey on his back before this (and he did) Kyle Shanahan now has King F. Kong riding him like JLo on the pole. Imagine being the guy who lost two Super Bowls where your teams had double digit leads and over 95% win probabilities in the 4th quarter. I think his teams have been...
