February 2002. October 2004. June 2008. And now June 2011. The trend continues. A few months ago, I wrote about Boston’ sports fan being the most spoiled of them all. One team wins and gains national exposure as much as the NFL owners locking out their players. In the mean...Read Full Post »

In Boston, we were already friendlier to Mother Nature even before Al Gore decided to bring awareness about the state of the Earth. Why? We’ve been wearing green since Vince Villanueva decided to form the Boston Celtics. We have lost sleep watching them play. We celebrate with them in the 60’s, the Bird years. We even enjoyed shouting BEAT L.A. anytime we play aga...Read Full Post »

It’s end of March; basketball fans around the US recognize this by two words: March Madness. So far this year, it has been March Upset. The Committee has done as good of a job as the Celtics did when they played the lowly Memphis Grizzlies early this March. Heavyweights such as Kansas, Georgetown, Texas, and Villanova lost to lower-ranked teams within the first two rounds causing brackets everywhere to go into chaos. With the way the tourney has started, it is safe to say that Kentucky ...Read Full Post »

Back in 2001, I remember watching an NFL-related show when a comedian said “The country is in a very patriotic state right now, the NE Patriots needs to go ahead and win the Super Bowl.” As a New England sports fan, I was happy to hear that.

The last week of the year and the first week of the New Year are some of the most spectacular weeks for me. It is time to kick back and watch some of the best football using my satellite Dish. College Football is what I mean. It usually starts around the week of December 25th, and continues until the big championship sometimes early January. The Big championship, appropriately titled Bowl Championship Series (BCS) National Championship, is scheduled this year to be between Texas and Alabama o...Read Full Post »

For most of us, this is the time of the year when everybody is making a list. This list is usually handed to a loved one, who will eventually buy, at least, one of these "gifts" for you. Most of the times, this "gift" is supposed to enable you to have something you did not have before. It is almost a similar process in sports, except the supply of what you need is limited, and the demand is extremely high.
Right after losing Game 7 of the American League Championship Series...Read Full Post »
