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!
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.
Tom Brady will be entering the final year of a 2-year, $41 million contract he signed with the team in 2016. He’s currently set to earn $15 million, vastly underpaid for a player of his caliber, something we have come to expect throughout his career, as he has sacrificed money time and time again for the betterment of the team. It’s a formula that had helped New England assemble championship rosters, especially this most recent run of titles.
However, Brady has never walked into a contract year, and even though it will be his age-42 season, the Patriots are not changing course in making sure the greatest QB of all-time is under team security. The week prior to the Super Bowl, owner Robert Kraft said the team would have no reservations in extending Brady, and we should expect nothing less.
To add some fuel to the fire, we’re hearing some figures about a possible Brady contract extension.
Welcome to February folks! It’s that time again, and we’re back and better than ever. Sorry for the delay, but we did not want to overwhelm everyone with tons of basketball players, so we decided to push things back a week.
Anyway, last week we saw Anthony Davis blow up the NBA, James Harden continue his monster scoring stretch, Bradley Beal continue to play well, and the Warriors… win. Unfortunately, since we last met, Victor Oladipo suffered a season-ending injury (our thoughts go out to him), and the Pacers have thus lost three games in a row. Going to football, we are just two days away from Super Bowl LIII, as the Los Angeles Rams face off against the New England Patriots, with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick looking for their 6th ring since 2001.
Welcome back to Who to Watch! Football fans, there is a BIG weekend coming up with the Rams and Saints, as well as Pats and Chiefs vying for a birth in the Super Bowl! The top two seeds in each conference, and the best offenses in football, it’s set to be two great games. In the NBA, James Harden is STILL dominating in a manner we have not seen in a LONG time (he’s now averaging 35.37 PPG, which would make him the 9th player all-time to average at least 35 PPG in a season). Kyrie had a statement game against the Raptors, but the Celtics are still not consistent enough to be considered a viable playoff threat at this time. The Warriors scored 51(!) points in the first quarter against the Nuggets, and with DeMarcs Cousins’ debut set for this evening, they might be ready to make their run.
Sit back and enjoy our players to watch over the next week!
Welcome back! After a long wait, we are back with the Hold My Drink
Podcast. Khaled, Kennedy, and Fredy are joined by Chief Joe Perez and Unscripted’s Al. Topics include Patriots demolishing the Chargers, what is wrong with the Celtics, are we excited for Kanye’s album, and predictions for this weekend’s Championship games.
