“If I had a son, if he was like John, I’d be the happiest man in the world.”—Red Auerbach And this wonderful tribute from Bob Ryan in the Sunday Globe: The late David Halberstam was infatuated with Larry Bird, who, he proclaimed, was “authentic.” Following that lead, I would label John Havlicek as “genuine.” The […]
No one can beat Father Time. But, I thought Andrew Beaton wrote an excellent article titled “How Tom Brady Conquered His Great Opponent: Age,” in the WSJ this week. As Beaton explains: “Brady has adjusted his game to compensate for all the things that a quarterback loses as he ages. He makes up for decreased […]
After Colin Kaepernick almost single handedly put the NFL into a ratings spiral, Nike decided it liked what it saw in the man and made him a centerpiece of its marketing. That decision has now cost the company $3 billion in market cap. Jesse Kelly reports for The Federalist (abridged): Look at this number: $3,000,000,000. […]

This week though, Matt Praticia, coach of the Detroit Lions and former Defensive Coordinator for the New England Patriots, took aim at media slacking by giving one reporter a lesson in professionalism […]
Nicole Yang writes at Boston.com: Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling says the Red Sox’ decision to exclude him from their ceremonial festivities before Game 2 of the World Series Wednesday night was intentional and unsurprising. “What they did, or did not do, [Wednesday] was done 100% on purpose and completely expected,” he wrote. In his […]
In a skewering Tweet, President Trump hammered the NFL over its ratings and the refusal of the league to take action against players kneeling during the national anthem. Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison. Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a decade. If the […]
Proof that Lebron James is the GOAT? Look no further than last night’s personal-postseason-best 51 points in 48 minutes. Even though his dominant performance wasn’t enough—a reversed call, a free throw miss and a JR Smith gaffe lead to a Cavs loss—the case for Lebron as the GOAT is hard to refute especially when you […]
