How far will your Red Sox go this year?

Curt Schilling will make it to Cooperstown… someday

Some things to wonder about as we count the hours to opening day, even if the occasion is possessed of rather less mystical fancy than was the case before we discovered the modern boys of summer have lumpy feet of clay.  Read more

Madness is right: NCAA tourney layered with deceit

At the considerable risk of sounding like a broken record, here are some idle musings on the 'madness' while waiting for it to pass. I'll say this much for it. The stuff is well-named.
And it needs to be further admitted — painful or otherwise — that this bloody annual NCAA basketball business only gets more wildly popular every year and with the new Chief Jock in the White House leading the cheers the madness can only deepen.

Yanks may be hurting, but your Sox have some holes too

More notes from the Florida spring baseball camps where it is already summertime and the living is mighty easy. Unless you play for either the Red Sox or the Yankees, that is. "C'mon down," as that merry old auto-hustler used to like to say.  Read more

Fifteen seconds left. The Dorchester Bears trail Boston English by three points. Darius Carter gets the pass, he's standing behind the three-point line. He shoots… swish!

Tie game. The Bears go on to win, 67-66. Carter finishes with 29 points and with that three-point basket, becomes the first player from the Dorchester Education Complex to score 1,000 points.

"Coach had a play for another shooter on the team," remembered Carter from his home in Dorchester, "but English knew the ball was going to him, so he kicked it out to me and I hit the shot. It was a nice moment."  Read more
