Another big Boston sports day

Another big Boston sports day is on tap. Starting with Pedro Martinez attempting to snap a two game Sox losing streak in Baltimore. Game starts at 3:00 on Fox 25. Then we have both the Celtics and Bruins in critical playoff matches. It might be reasonably safe to say whomever wins each of these games tonight is going to win the series. Catch the Bruins in Montreal on NESN at 7:00 and the Celtics at home on Fox Sports New England and TNT at 8:00.

I was watching the WB56 Sportscast last night, and the lead for the sports was the Red Sox with the big captions “Wheels are falling off”. Just a tad cynical. The team drops two games in a row, both of which ended with the tying or winning run at bat or on deck, and the “wheels are falling off”? This is a typical example of how the Boston media loves to stir up the fans and be negative. The team is off to a tremendous start, I don’t understand the need for this sort of thing.

However, it’s nice to see that Belichick is still feisty. He just turned 60 years old and it’s been seven seasons (going on eight) since the Patriots last won the big one. Three rings bought a lot of good will, but even he has to realize that the bank account’s getting low.
