The Bruins

I remember the little TV. It was a tiny black & white, maybe 6 or 8 inches and it had a little handle on it. My dad usually kept it in the garage to watch stuff when he was down there working on a car or whatnot, but one day the TV in my parents [...]

US-Canada

That US-Canada hockey game last night was captivating from start to finish. Not just because the Americans won it, either. Because it was simply an excellent hockey game, a treasure of a night if you’re a hockey fan. However, a word of caution. It shouldn’t be forgotten that Canada outshot the US by almost a [...]

Trip Through Our Murky World

Tiger Woods. What a complete, total dumbass. Some people who have everything just can’t be satisfied with everything, can they? They just have to have MORE. Dumbass.

Bledsoe Is Hurt? They’re Done.

So I’m not really a hardcore football or Patriots fan. If I have time, I’ll watch. And I’ll certainly watch the big playoff games, but other than that I have a million other productive things to do instead of parking it on the couch for 3-4 hours. That said, the loss of Tom Brady will [...]
