    Well, I feel bad for you. But, the Falcons had it in the bag and they couldn't stop Brady in the 4th quarter....

    It was a blow to the gut, that's for sure.
    Rest in Peace Jose Fernandez (1992-2016)

    I could say I feel bad but, I'm sure you'd realize I couldn't possibly be sincere.

    Hey... IMO, your coach screwed you out of a title... Julio Jones makes a fantastic catch with 4:40 left in the game (1st & 10 at NE 21)... If you run the ball three times* and kick a FG, the Pats would've been down TWO SCORES with under 3 minutes to go and no timeouts... I didn't see a miraculous comeback... I saw a monumental choke.



    *For the record, after Jones made the catch, I immediately turned to my wife and told her that's what I would do -- I assumed the Falcons were going to do that (and win the Super Bowl). I was wrong... but not as wrong as your coach.
    ANNO CATULI!
    EAMUS CATULI!

    Cool 69 days, 5 hours, 19 minutes until Yankees @ Red Sox!

    Who cares anyway?

    Today the five most beautiful words in the English language were spoken in earnest:

    "Pitchers & catchers report!"

    Besides, this is a baseball site... so the Pat are off topic. Lord knows I never bring up extraneous sporting material.

    Exclamation Falcons choked, you know it...

    And the reason you're "not surprised" -- you saw the same damn thing.

    31, unanswered points. Greatest COMEBACK in Super Bowl History!

    It might even rival another historic COMEBACK in 2004 . . .

    Thumbs up The Killer B's!




    - 8 Days left until Opening Day! -

    The Red Sox enter the 2017 season with perhaps the best young outfield in baseball. Sports Illustrated decided to put the spotlight on the talented trio for its next cover.

    As part of the magazine’s annual baseball preview issue, Red Sox outfielders Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi, and Jackie Bradley Jr. are featured on the cover.

    Talking Andrew Benintendi in the 5th inning hit a three-run home run!





    The Boston Red Sox opened up their 2017 campaign with a 5-3 victory in front of the Fenway Faithful on a sunny afternoon in Boston. Rick Porcello turned in a quality outing and the Boston bullpen did their part to secure the victory after rookie Andrew Benintendi cleared the right-field wall in the 5th inning with a three-run homer.

    “That’s my job. That’s what I look to do every fifth day, give us a chance to win.” Porcello said following his quality outing after receiving the well-deserved nod on Opening Day. Porcello was cruising through the first six shutout innings, but ran out of gas in the 7th struggling with his command and surrendering a few hits. He left with two runners on that both scored when Matt Barnes came in. However, Boston escaped blowing the lead despite Barnes loading the bases after a tremendous running over-the-shoulder catch by the young phenom Benintendi. Porcello struck out five and walked over his 6 1/3 innings of work.

    The Red Sox opened the scoring in the bottom of the 5th inning after with two down Jackie Bradley Jr. stroked a triple right field and subsequently scored on an infield single by Pablo Sandoval where he beat the throw on the back-end to pick up the RBI and extend the inning. Sandy Leon then alertly dropped down a bunt against the shift and got himself on base. The wily veteran Dustin Pedroia, starting his 11th consecutive Opening Day for the Sox, then drove in Sandoval with an RBI single back up the middle.

    Then, with a 2-0 lead and two on and two down magic happened at Fenway. Andrew Benintendi the youngest left fielder to start Opening Day since Yaz himself, launched a three-run homer to right field into the bullpen over the head of Andrew McCutchen. The first Red Sox rookie to homer on Opening Day since Tony Conigliaro in 1965.

    Thank you for noticing. It's been a long 15-year battle. It's my opinion that I have the upper hand. What's your opinion?

    I couldn't imagine the Red Sox starting out of the gate so slow in 2017. They're 2nd in BA but almost last in HR, RBI, and Slg.%. The last few seasons they lead the AL in every major offensive catagory. Could a single player, the retirement of David Ortiz, make that much of an offense difference? If so, I say lore Ortiz back for the second half of the season. Much like the Yankees did a few years ago with Rodger Clemens.
