    “A government shutdown means overseas troops could miss baseball playoff games and favorite NFL Sunday showdowns …” Stars and Stripes Regardless of how you feel about Obamacare or Congress or the President, you’ve got to admit it’s absurd that our armed forces should be denied the privilege of watching sporting events during the shutdown.

    My dad grew up in Somerville, spitting distance from the Davis Square T next to Tufts. When I was a little boy I would walk the city with him and he would tell me the fascinating story behind every brick and cobblestone. Who drank at this pub, how old this store was, this is where […]

    “The show will be remembered more as one about a marriage than one about football.” I don’t know how I missed this article at Grantland: An Oral History of Friday Night Lights.

    October 28th, 2012 @ 9:40 pm PST

    After watching the Gators get manhandled by the Bulldogs yesterday, I was understandably in a foul mood. I simply couldn’t bring myself to do much of anything.
