    Callahan asked Dumbo Hart after Russell and Sam Jones to name the “other boys” on the first all black starting five. Jesus.

    Enjoyed the Beanpot last night. The Garden seemed to be rocking, especially with NU students there in force. The Baseball Paper, however, says that the tournament is struggling, attendance-wise. And I’m sure it was a bit of a ghost-town during the consolation game. Is this a trend that started in 1995 when the building opened? Was the old barn just more fun for students and alumni to party in? Is it because of the BU/BC dominance of the past two decades (except for the last two tournaments, of course)? The rise of the Hockey East tournament since the 1980s?

    So many questions …  :blink:   :lol:

    Say it’s Pierce, Russell, KG, DJ, and Kyrie vs. Bird, Mchale, Cowens, Cousy, And Ainge.

    Who does Gerry Callahan have?

    Tony Mazz or Sam Kennedy?  Which one is the bigger brown nose?

    “It’s an important moment for the Red Sox,” team CEO and president Sam Kennedy said yesterday. “It’s a great thing, one, for the Red Sox to have a woman owner, and two, she has become an absolute force in the city of Boston. She’s passionate about the city of Boston, she’s passionate about connecting with the next generation in terms of technology and content, and she’s a force. Many of our senior level women executives have worked with her, she’s gathered women executives from different industries to speak about leadership and technology. It’s a very important moment for the Red Sox.”

     

    Is it important Sam or is it VERY important?

    Jean Yawkey was in the clubhouse ready to accept the trophy in ’86, not like they haven’t had a woman around.

    just as those who think the Pats history only exists starting from the Parcels era. Some think the Sox history only goes  back to the start of this ownership group.

    A “woman” owner.  Would they refer to a “man” owner?  Just sounds so awkward. Maybe female/male would be better, but who knows what offends people these days.

    “Head Bitch In Charge”?  Probably going too far.

    I’m sure Marty Walsh would have a prepared statement.

    I wonder about that, too. Apparently something is wrong with the adjective ‘female’ so ‘woman’ gets used. Link Another

    These broads need to get together and figure out what they want us to call them.

    Was reading something on Marvin Gaye singing the anthem at the ’83 NBA All Star Game and they had photos of the respective teams.  I would have lost my house betting against Bill Laimbeer being an All Star in 1983.

    I read somewhere that The Athletic is planning on covering all teams in MLB this year. I don’t think this town is big enough for two subscription sports sites.

    Sam’s gonna get dinged by the Powders for not using the word visionary in that quote.

    I assume Linda is also responsible for such brilliant decisions as (1) hiring the people, and approving the plan for, the change in distributors/delivery agencies two years ago, resulting in a massive delivery problem and a significant and permanent decline in readership; (2) moving the printing plant to Taunton on the far southern tier of the metro area, meaning that the northern suburbs, and sometimes the city and the western suburbs, get early editions of the newspaper that don’t carry game stories when the teams are in the Midwest, Rockies or West Coast; (3) while continuing to raise subscriptions prices, throwing money at CHB (aka “The Brand”), the worthless, talentless, hacko-di-tutti-hacki, rather than hire better news reporters who would make their online site a more worthwhile read.

    Naw … let’s talk about Hub Week!

    I haven’t been to a Beanpot since 95, but my recollection is that the consolation game was always a ghost town.

    The Beanpot may be the thing I miss most about not being in Boston anymore.

    Wasn’t this the same ownership group that was making fun of Les Otten for being a “2%er” with such a small ownership stake.

    Of course, Linda’s undisclosed small stake is extremely relevant and critical to the team.    :rollseyes:

    …and because of the NESN telecast of the finals they start it considerably earlier than they used to, knocking down the crowd even more.

    I don’t really know because I didn’t grow up around here. But, I think it could be a byproduct of BU, BC and Northeastern working to become much more national schools. And also changes in the corporate makeup around town. The idea that everyone working downtown grew up around here and went to one of those 4 schools seems like part of the past. That sense of community that included the Beanpot is less prevalent. Just a thought.
