Just wanted to congratulate all of the teams who defeated the New England Patriots this season. I know it was the highlight of their season, especially since none of them made the playoffs. Now enjoy the video below, I think you will enjoy the ending.
On Saturday night, the Celtics found themselves at the FedExForum in Memphis, TN seeking a much needed Western Conference win against Mike Conley and the Grizzlies. The West has been a sore spot for the Celtics this season - as they entered this contest with a cumulative 5-7 record against Western Conference opponents. Boston would be obligated to address this problem, as their trip to Memphis marked just the second game of a 5-game stretch against consecutive Western Conference teams. Fresh off of an unnerving loss to the Houston Rockets on Thursday night, this was the Celtics’ opportunity to find a foothold on said stretch, before things got out of hand.
Entering their final game before the 2019 Winter Classic at Notre Dame Stadium against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Bruins were looking to put forth a solid performance against the Buffalo Sabres Saturday night as the team made the trip north to KeyBank Center. Fresh off a disappointing 5-2 loss at home to the New Jersey Devils Thursday, Boston could hardly afford to drop points against the division-rival Sabres, who entered the evening with a three-point cushion on the Black and Gold.
Major League Baseball has a pace-of-play problem. This is not breaking news, but for a baseball purist like me, admitting that the games are taking too long was a tough pill to swallow. I like baseball because it is slow. You can talk between pitches, grab a beer at the concession stand and get back to your seat before the at bat is over, and relish at the fact it is the only major Western sport that doesn’t have a clock (not counting tennis or golf here). This is a good thing, because resilient teams with comparative talent can technically perform better against their opponents at any point during the game. The White Sox could be trailing the Orioles by 10 runs in the bottom of the ninth and still come back and win (even in my hypotheticals, the Orioles lose...that’s payback for Game 162 in 2011). And those comebacks can be spectacular, like the real life comeback the Red Sox staged against the (you guessed it) Orioles on Mother’s Day 2007...
The returns of Zdeno Chara, Kevan Miller and Jake Debrusk to the Boston Bruin lineup was spoiled as the NHL's bottom-dwelling New Jersey Devils stormed to a convincing 5-2 victory at the TD Garden on Thursday Night.
