Lets see what a 6-rookie Red Sox lineup can do...
Earlier in the week I started a blog under the working title of "New Red Sox Lineup."  The premise of it was that it's time to give up on the season, get rid of dead weight veterans, and start playing youngsters in preparation for next year.  The idea first...

What do you do to keep track of all your passwords?
Anything you do on the interwebs these days needs a password.  I'm sure for "security purposes" it's smarter to use a different one for everything.  But that's impossible, right?  I'm really curious as to what people do about this. The yellow post it note s...

Awesome Old Song of the Week: "I Wanna Be With U" by Fun Factory
In 1995 Fun Factory's I Wanna Be With U was my jam of the summer.  I had their Close to You CD (also the title of their most popular single), but as you can see it didn't really offer much information about the band.  I think I knew that they were a German ...

I want Spuds MacKenzie to be cool again
Last week I was in a restaurant that had a Spuds MacKenzie lamp sitting on the bar.  If you're not familiar with (or somehow don't remember) Spuds MacKenzie, from 1987-1989 he was the original party animal. After gaining massive fame and popularity during h...

What the heck was going on with Serena Williams at Wimbledon this morning?
The official word is Serena Williams is suffering from a "viral illness."  But if I didn't know any better I'd say she looked really really drunk.  I've honestly never seen anything like this in pro sports before.  It was insane, she couldn't even pick the ...

Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Yakety Yak" by The Coasters
The Coasters released "Yakety Yak" in 1958, but I've always known it as the song Arnold Schwarzenegger sang in Twins  thirty years later. If you were born sometime after the Reagan administration and are not familiar with the 1988 film  Twins , I highly rec...

ESPN isn't afraid to make absurd statistical comparisons
When Germany scored 4 goals in a span of 6 minutes against Brazil yesterday, the stat-loving gears in my head immediately started turning.  The first thing I thought of was to try to relate that to the NBA.  Here's what I came up with: Two goals is about av...

The Red Sox broke Xander Bogaerts by switching him to 3rd base (I wish they'd broken Stephen Drew instead)
On the morning of June 1 Xander Bogaerts was hitting .304.   To that point in the season he'd come up to bat 224 times , with an on-base percentage of .397.  For all 224 of those plate appearances (spanning 53 games) Bogaerts was Boston's shortstop.  June 1...

I may have to buy Harpoon's entire stock of grapefruit beer
This summer Harpoon decided to make a beer with grapefruit juice called UFO Big Squeeze Shandy .   I'm a huge fan of all things grapefruit , and I honestly think it's my favorite beer of all time.  I bought a 12-pack on Memorial Day expecting to only drink ...

It's a little obnoxious of us to get too down about the U.S. being eliminated from the World Cup
That was some game yesterday, but now we can all go back to not caring about soccer for the next 1,400 days or so (until the 2018 World Cup in Russia).  And as much as people ( myself included ) got excited about this edition of Team USA, it is still true t...

It's maddeningly impossible to give up on these Red Sox
After teasing their fans by busting out 8 runs and 12 hits (with every player in the lineup contributing at least one) in Yankee Stadium on Sunday, the pathetic 2014 Red Sox offense was back to its old self on Monday, getting shut out and nearly no-hit by t...

I'm worried Julius Randle will be the next great Laker, and the Celtics let them have him
First off, I'm not complaining about the Celtics drafting Marcus Smart at #6.  I'm excited to have him here.  And quick sidebar -- Boston choosing Smart doesn't for one second mean Rajon Rondo is going to be traded.  The Celtics were a bad team this year, a...
