  1. Welcome to the 90's

  2. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    It seems like a reactionary play. Unfortunately for Marchand, he's never going to get the benefit of the doubt because of his history. Such is the game.

    The Seahawks have informed Richard Sherman that they will be releasing him today. GET IT DONE, PATRIOTS.

    Ron Francis is out as general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes and will now be the President of Hockey Operations. Keep doing you, Carolina.
  5. Fun With Flags!!!!

    I have a flag from the Whiskey Rebellion up in my classroom. Kids are always intrigued by it primarily because A.) they know it looks American but they have no idea what it stands for and B.) it's a pretty cool design.

    Negative. I did go to Harvard. It was a Wednesday. RIP Mitch

    Compared to the rest of Cambridge, I would define Ben Affleck as a moderate.

    You would have enjoyed the time I heard "I want to angry at [the Tsarnaevs] for what they did at the Boston Marathon, but I'm not an Islamaphobe" during one of my grad classes. And this is 50% doing the right thing and 50% revenue. Boston sports is notorious for two things; squeezing every penny out of their fanbase and triggering Lights Out.

    The whole instance just smells of the "I need to prove I'm not a racist so don't call me a racist if you ever think I'm a racist you racist" attitude that's slowly coming over from Cambridge. And the Boston media, for the most part, disliked Jim Rice a lot.

    That tunnel sucks, we owe Teddy Ballgame something a bit better.

    It'll go through and everyone in Massachusetts will pat themselves on the back for being so progressive. Do something fun like "Williams Way" or "Bobby Doerr Boulevard." Not "Jersey Street." I want no connection to TNak.
  12. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    Matt Beleskey is about to turn 30 and the only thing of note he's done in his career was put up 22 goals in 2014-15, which I'm pretty sure was more of a product of playing with Corey Perry in Anaheim. He's also put up 6 points in 21 games with Providence this year. Providence. For what he was getting paid, 6 points in 21 games would have been pathetic if he was doing it in the NHL, never mind the AHL. As much as I wanted to love Beleskey, he was just too frustrating to watch. And speaking of frustrating, that pretty much defines the career of Ryan Spooner. You never knew which Ryan Spooner you would get prior to the game starting; the Ryan Spooner who was a playmaking dynamo or the Ryan Spooner who didn't know what the hell he was doing on the ice. He's yet another Bruins prospect that hasn't lived up to the hype, but to be fair, he's certainly done better than other Bruins prospects that have been hyped to the moon and back (re: Jared Knight, Zach Hamill, Joe Colborne, Jordan Caron, etc.) but at 26 and playing at such a deep position for the Bruins, he was completely expendable. I like this deal. The Bruins can't be trusted with first round draft picks anyway, so this is a pretty positive move for the team. I honestly feel like the Bruins didn't give up that much for such a premiere player.

    The Bruins have acquired Rick Nash from the Rangers in exchange for Ryan Spooner, Matt Beleskey, Ryan Lindgren, a 1st in 2018 and a 7th in 2019.

    Made all the better thanks to the tweet being created by a guy who shares a name with someone who signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. #Murica

    J.D. Martinez is officially a Boston Red Sox. This pleases me.
