Leave it to Peav-er?


There's a potentially epic pennant race going on in the AL East. And one that doesn't even involve the Yankees!? I know, right? Which is probably why I turned on Boston sports talk on Monday to hear them debating whether Patrice Bergeron or Joe Thornton should be considered the better historic Boston hockey figure...

Yeah, whatever. I'm a bitter prick and blah, blah, blah. Fine. That being said, I've got some Sox commentary for ya. Including thoughts on their addition of Jake Peavy. And apparently there's professional football being played this weekend? I'll touch a bit on that, too. Including some Hernandez-free comments on the New England Patriots...

Don't Hassle Me, I'm Local...


Still on vacation, Teds. But here are some movie trailers for your viewing pleasure. Oh, and I hear tell that "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" is making a comeback. So there's always that, too...

Enjoy, and I'll catch you next week for the usual smattering of treats and goodies...

Oh, and one more thing. As predicted here in this very space, I've already begun to tire of HBO's Newsroom and they're only one episode into their second season. The writing's just too snarky and over the top intelligent, while the majority of the cast is made up of mousy women or dudes that act like insecure high school chicks. And then there's Sam Waterston, in all his Roger Sterling 2.0-esque glory, trying but failing to save what on the surface looks like a very interesting concept. Until, you know. Sorkin tries to rewrite history in such an over the top idealistic fashion that would make even a Stepford wife blush...

But, despite all my big talk, I'll keep watching. Mostly because there isn't much else on, right now. But mostly because I don't wanna miss that inevitable episode where Olivia Munn finally goes topless. And hopefully she'll have fixed those tan lines she was sporting in Magic Mike...

And yes. That's me being both a beggar and a chooser. So sue me. Just don't hassle me...

Enjoy, friends. And I'll catch you next week...

From Brad to Worse...


First, I gave the Clippers credit for not trading valuable draft picks for essentially a useless commodity in Doc Rivers. Then, they went and did it anyway. Mortgaging their future for a guy that was the bounce of a ping pong ball away from losing his job. Now, the bizarre and delusional world of NBA coaching has produced yet another strange turn of events. Brad Stevens leaving Butler for the Celtics? Yeah, can't say I though that coming. And while this is totally my problem, I can't say it's a move I really understand, either...

I'll give you that, along with some Red Sox notes. Not too many, mind you. Because I'm on my version of "vacation". I'm still working, just not nearly as hard. You know, because of the string of nice weather we've been having and that whatnot. And especially because it seems like that good stretch is about to come to a screeching halt...

Freaking nature...

Enjoy...

Stern's Last Draft As The C's 'Dump for Drew'...


Here we are. Just a few weeks from baseball's All Star break, and another week removed from the Aaron Hernandez situation. So, obviously I'm going to start things off this week by talking about the Bill Simmons, Danny Ainge, Doc Rivers and the NBA Draft. Mostly because I'm a glutton for punishment, but mostly because I love dumping on the aforementioned parties more than Celtics fans are going to enjoy watching their beloved green shirts 'Dumping For Drew'. Which is, of course, the name I've gone ahead and made the team's official slogan as they attempt to land Canadian wunderkind and current Kansas Jayhawk, Andrew Wiggins...

But we'll get to all that. And I'll circle back around to talk about Hernandez, too. And how somehow I keep getting put in the position of defending a guy that's looking like every bit the criminal that the state of Massachusetts is accusing him of being...

Enjoy...
