    I love listening to it on the radio. I think it's the old timey aesthetic of it to be honest. I do wood working and my favorite thing is listening to the Sox on the radio out in my garage. I have this running joke with my family that I would be the...

    But yes, your point stands about me. I've seen four World Series wins, and countless ACLS appearances, one Stanley Cup and two other Cup appearances, Six Super Bowls and three other appearances, one one NBA Championship and one other NBA...

    I do, actually. I'm of the age where I got stuck in the middle of my dad, and then the generation after me. My age is basically the only generation that saw Boston sports suck. My dad grew up during like the Bill Russel era in the NBA where they won...

    Well that's the thing, and I didn't quantify it well in my last post. Nobody wants to be here because of the sports culture. Like you said, you don't have your finger on the pulse of Boston sports culture because you're not here, which makes sense....

    They're shopping him because he doesn't want to be here. Boston is pretty cut throat when it comes to sports, not just baseball. If you listen online to 98.5 Sports Hub they talk pretty regularly about how athletes across all four sports hate coming...

    Yeah I don't think I ever mentioned that on here actually. That was my name. Mikey "Monkey Legs" Sweeney. I fought 125 so I'm pretty small, and I was so small I typically ended up on bottom in grappling matches. But I'm absurdly flexible and like...

    I fucking hate Red Sox ownership. We have the highest ticket prices in baseball which sucks for different reasons, and their ownership is going to let Mookie Betts walk.

    I've heard that Grienke isn't a guy who tends to go 110+ pitches a start and the pitch he threw to Rendon was an absolute meatball. I agree that the moment he left the game was the moment we won but I don't know that it was necessarily an obvious...

    Hey man, just wanted to say I hope your NYE rendezvous goes well.

    IRT what you said in the movie thread: Yeah, it's pretty crazy. At 17 my family would have told you I'd never settle down or have a family. It just wasn't what they expected of me. Now I'm 28 and I have three kids.
