Sports Bio

The Pats-Oakland game in the snow in Foxboro.
Adam Vinatieri's kick thru the blowing snow is something that I will always remember. What an ending to the old concrete slab on Rt 1.(the old sullivan-Foxboro stadium)

Faithful Patriots-Red Sox fan. Prefer football than baseball,but follow both equally.
Celtics fan. I do not follow basketball much,but will go to a game or 2 a year.

Celtics basketball has never been the same since the Bird,
Parish, McHale era.

Sparano beginning of Dolphins shakeup: Now that they have a head coach,they've got to start looking for some players.And maybe in a few years they start to be a contender in the AFC East.

BC coach fired for Jets' interview

I don't blame BC,or any other team.It's all about the almighty dollar and the lure of becoming an NFL Head Coach.Going to the NFL doesn't guarantee your going to last.Just look what happened to Crennel of the Browns and the other head coaches who got fired this year.And they had NFL backgrounds!Should of stayed at BC where he had job security.

Hello World! Rays beat Bosox in Game 7, Advance to World Series

Matt Garza pitched the game of his life.Boston took them to seven games but just couldn't get the timely hits that was needed to win.Congrats to the Rays and their fans.I'll be rooting for them to win it all.The bad part is the Red Sox lost.The good part is that it wasn'to the Yankees.Rays went from worst to first which is quite an accomplishment.Just wondering what the Cubs and their fans are thinking what they have to do just to get to the World Series,never mind win one, after watching what the Rays did this season.But the Rays are facing a good Philly team.Phillies in 6.

The Hoser's NFL Picks, Week Two 2008

Hopefully the Patriots and the Matt Cassel era will continue their winning ways against the Jets this week.Beating the Chiefs was one thing,Cassel vs the Jets and Favre at the Meadowlands might be a little tougher than beating the lackluster Chiefs at home in week 1.Only time will tell if Cassel has what it takes to be an N.F.L. QB. A.F.C.East there for the taking maybe for the Bills,Jets,and Dolphins.Although I'm still not counting out the Pats just yet.

Pavlik beats Taylor. Again.

I would love to see what Marvin Hagler would do to Pavlik and Taylor if they were around when The Marvelous One was the Undespituted Middleweight Champ back in the eightys.Neither one would stand a chance against him.I think by far he was the best middleweight in his day,if not the best ever!!

Belichick has been taping since 2000, Goodell tells Specter

The whole thing is just a waste of taxpayers dollars.Hasn't the government got anything better to do than to butt in on the NFL?He got caught,paid his fine,the team paid theirs.Enough said.Get on with the offseason.Training camp opens in July.Season opens in Sept.Stop beating a dead horse!!

Tom Brady Wearing Walking Cast

Highly doubtful Brady will not play in Super Bowl XLII. It'll take more than a sore foot to keep him from playing!!!Although Brady didn't look that good against the Chargers,look for Brady to be on top of his game come S.B. Sunday.

Dungy: Nothing has Changed

Jim Caldwell is all set to take over the reins as soon as Dungy decides to give them up.Not only is Dungy a class act,but Caldwell also seems dedicated to wait until that happens.Both are classy guys,and not many such as Caldwell to sit and wait until a head coach waits and decides his fate with the team as the head coach.

Patriots advance to their 4th Superbowl in 7 years.

Outside of New England,I've got to agree that the Patriots fan base is practically none.It seems that alot of people want to see the Patriots lose the Super Bowl just because of the history that is at stake here.They don't want to see them go 19-0.I can see maybe why the Dolphin fans don't want them to win,even though the 17-0 mark has been broken,it's the undefeated season as a whole thats at stake for them.Call them cheaters,or what ever else some people want to call them,but what everyone is going to witness if the Patriots do win the S.B. is that this years Pats team will go down maybe as the greatest team ever to play the game of football.

Superbowl: Patriots vs. Giants 2.0

Giants played a great game in that frozen tundra they call Lambeau Field.Eli had a great game and seemed to throw at will against that Green Bay defense.I thought that the Packers were going to win it in O.T. when they won the coin toss.But when Favre threw that pick,I knew it was over.Favre has had a great career,and has a Super Bowl ring(1 but correct me if I'm wrong)I think it's time for him to hang up the cleats and retire.One more Super Bowl would of been nice for him,but I think it would be the right thing for Bret to retire with all of the records that he holds.Next stop is the Hall of Fame.

Moss denies allegations he committed battery against a woman are false and tthat she made them up to get moneyfrom him

Just seems like she may be doing this since the AFC Championship Game is coming up,and give Randy and the Patriots something negative in the press.Of course there's going to be some that believe her considering Moss' past.Why wasn't this brought out before this week?

Patriots to Honor Booed Teenager

She knew before her name was announced that she was going to get booed.There were probably a few just doing it just to have a little fun,but I'm sure there was those drunken, obnoxious morons booing a fourteen year girl wearing a Patriots jersey just out of hatred of the Patriots.Class act on Krafts part to give her and her family tickets to the game.Good PRs for smoothing over maybe some hurt feelings,even though she said it didn't bother her.

Chargers Beat Colts, 28-24,

Rivers is a little immature.He's always getting into it with the fans on the road.Yesterday wasn't the first time he's done it.He's got to learn to suck it up and be professional about it. Letting the fans know that they are getting under his skin just makes them get louder and gets more people into it.Rivers has got to learn to let that trash talk go and just play football,what he's being payed to do.He's going to hear alot of it this coming weekend here in Foxboro.The fans at Gillette Stadium will have him eating right out of their hands.

Patriots Extend Perfect Season to 17-0

Micheangelo and surgically precise is exactly what Tom Brady and the offense did to the Jaguars did last night.Except for the missed field goal as mentioned above.The defense has got to start tackling better,and Harrison has got to stop getting them stupid 15 yard roughing penalities.The Jaguars are a big team on both sides of the ball.I guess trying to stop them big receivers and backs has been hard for any team.Anyhow,congrats to the Jags and their fans.They just couldn't do what 17 other opponents weren't able to do and that is to stop Brady and the offense.

USC's Carroll intersted in Falcons opening

Money probably is the motivating factor if and when he decides to make the jump.But why go to the pros?I don't know what his salary is at USC,but I'm sure it's not chump change.Plus the job security he has in Southern Cal. He's known for not being able to coach at the pro level.Be smart Pete.You won't last long in Atlanta or any other Pro city!!

Giants top Buccaneers,

I don't know what Phillips was thinking giving the players the luxury of basically letting them do what they wanted.Sure you've got the bye week,and maybe take a little time off from football.But going and lounging on a Mexican resort I think is a bit much.I can see Belichick telling his team,"Alright boys,we earned the right to the bye week,you all go down to Mexico,have a few Margaritas on me,and I'll see you back here Monday morning.Yea right!!!
