What if I told you there were plenty of sports stories yet to be told. Continue reading “30 for 30s we need”
There’s an old adage that the best players in a sport do not make good coaches.
Well, Tim Duncan will try to change that. Continue reading “Hall of Fame Player becomes Coach”
The Mets are always going to be losers. Let’s make that clear. And this situation doesn’t help their cause at all.
Yes, the sports media, especially in New York, is the worst. You think Boston is bad? New York has some of the best/worst reporters in the country so I understand when athletes and coaches there are hesitant to go there. Continue reading “Mets suck so bad the Manager Cant help but be a Jerk”
Thank God I’m just a bandwagon Bruins fan because that list would have devastated me! Listen, I love sports as much as the next guy but hockey isn’t for me. Maybe next season that’ll change and I’ll understand the game more. But as of now, what should be a kick in the nuts 4-1 loss in a Game 7 feels like a love tap for now.
In this post, I’ll be joined by fellow writer Nick. We’ll be discussing things to look forward to (unless your a Red Sox fan) this summer. Yes, Boston just won 2 championships, but the grind doesn’t stop and neither do we! Let’s get this bad bitch rolling.

Welcome back everyone!
Bit of a slow week in the office since we last met, right? Well, not exactly. We saw the Toronto Raptors cap of a comeback from being down 2-0 against the Milwaukee Bucks, winning the Eastern Conference Finals in 6 games. Oh yeah, we ALSO saw Toronto take Game 1 of the NBA Finals, their first Finals game in franchise history. Pascal Siakam looked spectacular, and Toronto did a great job limiting the potent Warriors offense; folks, I think we actually have a legitimate series here. In the NHL, the Stanley Cup Finals began, as the Boston Bruins faced off against the St. Louis Blues. Boston took Game 1, while the Blues won Game 2 in OT; this also looks like another great series in the making. We’ll continue to have championship games occur over the next week, as well as baseball, which is roughly one-third of the way through. In case you were wondering, the Minnesota Twins (you read that right) have the best record in baseball, as they currently stand at 37-18. Christian Yelich leads baseball with 21 home runs as he makes a strong case for a second straight NL MVP. Domingo German leads baseball in wins with 9.
Alright, on to what to look for during the next week, as we enter the warmth of June.
Welcome back to Who To Watch!
We apologize for not being able to post last week (forgive us, we are very busy college students!) but we are back and better than ever this week!
Since we last met, we have seen three teams advance to the championship round of their respective sport: the Boston Bruins, St. Louis Blues, and Golden State Warriors. This is nothing new for the Warriors, who are going to the NBA Finals for the 5th straight season. The Bruins are going to the Stanley Cup Finals for the third time this decade (first time since 2013). The Blue… the last time the Blues went to the Stanley Cup Finals was back in 1970… against the Boston Bruins (you might remember a very famous picture of Bobby Orr flying through the air from that series).
In terms of teams still playing, we just saw Toronto beat the Bucks to take a 3-2 series lead. For a team that looked like they might be down for the punch after last Friday, the Raptors were able to prevail in double OT in Game 3, win with ease in Game 4, and pull out a victory in Game 5; are we on the verge of seeing a Canadian franchise in the NBA Finals for the first time in the history of basketball?
Well, we’ll find out on next week’s edition of Who To Watch!

Happy Friday folks, welcome back.
What a difference a week can make. Imagine telling someone last week just how bad the Celtics would fail to finish their series against the Bucks? Truly embarrassing. The rest of the NBA has provided great playoff action. Last Friday Portland and Denver player the first quadruple overtime playoff game since the 1950s, the Rockets dug themselves out of a hole to compete in their series against Golden State, although the Warriors have a 3-2 lead. The Raptors and Sixers have swung back and forth, making you love what makes each good, while questioning their faults all at the same time, and we get a Game 7 because of it. In the NHL, we have reached the Conference Finals. The Bruins are facing the Carolina Hurricanes (and beat them 5-2 last night) out East, while the St. Louis Blues are facing the San Jose Sharks out West. We had a crazy end to the Kentucky Derby where the horse that crossed the finish line first apparently broke a rule, and after instant replay, was DQ’d, the first time this had ever happen in the history of the race. We also had a no-hitter in baseball this week, courtesy of Michael Fiers of the Oakland Athletics.
Oh, and Kerm is getting ready to protest with Lakers fans at Staples Center soon.
