Congratulations Argentina, good match, France. Is the World Cup Pro Bowl this weekend?

Jeff Saturday has got to be the first NFL head coach to coach a game on a day of the week that is also his name, right?

Once people realize the MLS draft is happening right now they’ll forget all about the Patriots for a day or two. They got a Boston College kid!

Goodbye, JD Martinez, hello Justin Turner.

I hope Meyers feels bad for ruining Judon’s Hanukkah.

Steelers waited 40 years to retire Franco Harris’ number and he won’t be down for breakfast a couple days before it was going to happen. Good job reading the actuarial tables for former Pittsburgh players.

Matty Journeyman, everybody!

The NFL has announced that it reached a multi-year deal with Google giving YouTube TV and YouTube Primetime channels exclusive rights to NFL Sunday Ticket in the United States beginning next season. Whoa.

I am dissenting, I’m looking differently
I do whatever I please, exactly what I want to be
I don’t fit into general rules
Ignore them all the time

Breakin’ the rules, gonna take my share
Live my own life, I don’t care
I don’t fit into general rules
Ignore them all the time

United we stand – Eternal ban
Together we are strong – Eternal ban.

I believe in John Henry and I believe in Tom Werner, and never in the world would I second-guess the current leadership of the team, C Bloom and others. I’m just not sure I can see where the foundations are.

This just in; Francisco Franco Harris is still dead.

Peppermint bark?

That was some Wasabi Fenway Bowl.

I think Chris Berman looks great. They did a really nice job on him.
