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.
*Disclaimer: This was written before game 6 so the NBA side may change. Updates may occur as well. Enjoy!
In this weeks Unscripted, Fredy and Ben discuss who would win in a cage match, Biden or Trump? Also, the boys get into why Americans these days are so desensitized to tragedies around the world, terrible customer service stories, and how shitty journalism is nowadays. Join us for laughs!
Before we begin, we want to share some news: this will be our last Who To Watch. We brought this series to you as a way to inform readers who to keep an eye on in the various leagues that were playing during a given time. However, as the NHL season could be over as early as Sunday, and the NBA season could be over by next Thursday, we feel as though it would be redundant to repeatedly write about baseball players all summer. With this in mind, this series will be taking the next few months off. You can still find other great content on our blog, which will bring fresh perspectives to you the reader, something we will continue to strive to accomplish moving forward.
We hope that you have enjoyed this series thus far (we have enjoyed sharing our talented writers and their views with you!), and that when we start up again in the coming months, you will continue to read what we have to say from this weekly post.
With that in mind, here is our last Who To Watch of the summer, featuring Fredy, Mike, and Nick.
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.

In this edition of “They Should’ve Been a Dynasty,” we explore recent NFL teams that should have won more than they ultimately did.
Remember the rules, I see a dynasty as the following: a team that has won at least three championships in a 10-year window. It can be a smaller window (i.e. a three-peat), but I think the simplest barometer is winning three championships within a certain window of time, showing that you were the best of your sport, and you showed it repeatedly.
If you’ve met me, you’ll know I’m a big what-if kind of guy.
Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be conducting a series called “They Should’ve Been a Dynasty,” exploring teams from different sports over the past 15-20 years that I believe should have won more than they did. Continue reading ““They Should’ve Been a Dynasty””
