New England Patriots
Congratulations to the New England Patriots on being the first team to go 16-0! What an exciting game against the New York Giants.
What a great game by Tom Brady and Randy Moss, certainly worth the coverage by 3 networks. Who know what the post season will bring the to the New England Patriots.
So the Boston Red Sox win their 2nd Championship in 3 years and the Boston Celtics are off the to best start in Basketball history. It certainly the best time to be in the New England market.
Sorry to all my friends in California, its really nice to be in New England sports fan right now. It doesn't matter how much snow there is on the ground. Being the first team in 25 years to go undefeated and to have a winning Basketball team and a championship baseball team. It doesn't get any better than this.

Red Sox Win the World Series!
Congratulations on the Boston Red Sox on winning another World Series!
What an awesome year it has been for the Boston Red Sox! There was so much exciting drama, from signing Dice-K to staying number one in the east for most of the season. Winning the World Series was an awesome way to end a great season, and a special way to remember the Impossible Dream Team of 1967.
Red Sox Nation is looking forward to hearing all the off-season news over the next few months. We'll soon find out who stays and who goes and all new faces that show up at the City of Palms for Spring Training. Where will Mike Lowell and Curt Schilling end up? Will the head office extend Terry Francona contract before it ends next year?
The win this year certainly shows that a good team is made of many different players and in baseball, having a good farm league can really benefit the teams long term prospect. While some veteran players, such as Mike Lowell and Jason Varitek put in some strong numbers, some young players such as Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia also made significant contributions.
Get ready because the 2008 Red Sox season starts right now...

World Series Game One
Yes a World Series game was played last night, its hard to believe it. Thirteen runs and sixteen hits by the 5th inning? By only one team?
Didn?t the Red Sox almost face elimination three times in the past week by the Cleveland Indians? Didn?t most of the Boston Media write them off?
The Colorado Rockies were supposed to be the best team in the post season. They didn?t loose one game in the post season, and were on a 21 game winning streak. Did the eight day layoff cause them to loose their steam? Perhaps, or it could be working out in the snow in Colorado early this week.
Wait a minute Boston, before you start planning the victory parade, remember this is one game of baseball. There?s plenty of game to play.
The FOX announcers were quick to point out how the Red Sox faced the same type of game in game three of the 2004 ALCS. They managed to regroup and win the next four games and the ALCS title.
As exciting as it was to watch them play, what?s more interesting is too see what the Colorado Rockies do tomorrow night again Kurt Schilling. This will probably be his last game in a Red Sox uniform.
Right now, we celebrate a very nice victory. Congratulations Red Sox on winning Game One of the 2007 World Series.

World Series - Game One
Nothing comes easy in Life. Nobody ever gives you something because you wear a particular shirt.
Tonight the Red Sox will show everyone that they are the best team in baseball. The latest sports book has the Red Sox favored by 2 to 1 to win the World Series.
WTTK, a Boston area talk statioin, has been running segments on people that aren't into baseball and what they have been doing. I think most Bostonians are very excited that the Red Sox are in the World Series. Without question this is very good for the city.
If your heading to see the game take the 'T', avoid the large crowds that is expected to be in the area. After the game, take your time heading back, since there's usually a long wait to catch the 'T' out bound to Riverside.
Tomorrow, I'll make available some Wallpaper of Fenway park of photos that I took this year.

Red Sox win the ALCS!
Red Sox are going to the World Series!
Congratulations on the Boston Red Sox on making it back to the world series. In fact they did it in the exact same way as the last time, by sweeping the ALDS and winning the ALCS when down 3-1.
Boston this morning is very exciting place to be, the radio is all about the Red Sox win and about the exciting game last night. While the score was 11-2, it was close game. In fact, it was still uncertain until the bottom of the 8th inning.
So, once again Boston is the place to be in October. With the Red Sox going to the World Series, Patriots making a run for a 16-0 season, and Boston College ranked #2 in the nation, this is definitely a sports town!
The Boston area is celebrating other exciting news, we are ranked #1 in education and have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
Yes, there's lots to be excited to this morning. So if your in Boston, enjoy your Dunkin Donut coffee this morning, and start making your plans to watch the World Series on Wednesday night.

2007 ALCS is set
Wow the Yankees couldn't make it past the ALDS this year. For most baseball analysts this wasn't a surprise since they didn't have very good pitching. The last few weeks of baseball was a focus on just making the playoffs. While most of the other teams were focus on surviving the playoffs.
I think Joe Torre made a mistake using Chien-Ming Wang as a starter pitcher with only three days of rest. Chien-Ming Wang didn't last 2 innings, he was taken out in the second inning with no outs. I am sure the New York papers and sports talk shows will be talking about this all day today.
So, its Red Sox vs Indians this Friday night. Should be an exciting series. Red Sox have the edge with experience and better pitching. They also beat the Indians five times during the regular season. I think the Red Sox will win the series by 4-2.
In Boston, there's lot of excitement that this might be another repeat of the 2004 Championship. The pitching is much better this year and the team is healther. Local news are reporting that Bleacher seats that sell for about $20 a game are going for $250 from ticket resellers.

Red Sox Win! Red Sox Win! Wahoo!!!
What a great game on Sunday, Manny and Ortiz hit home runs! Everyone played a great series! I love this quote from Larry Lucchino, Red Sox CEO in this mornings Boston Globe:
The Sox await the winner of the Indians-Yankees series.
"That surprises me a little," Lucchino said, "because in the past I've always felt you had to go through Yankee Stadium to validate your quest. I don't feel that way this year.
"Maybe it's a function of us being tested the way we've been the last few years - we've had a lot of intense experiences with them - but the train doesn't have to drive through the Bronx in order for us to get to the promised land."
I am hoping that the Indians-Yankees series goes 5 games, so the winner of the series is pretty tired by the time they come to Fenway Park.

Yesterday Daunte Culpepper was release from the Miami Dolphins, the AP ran the following quote:
As I was going through this process I heard about a quote by Gandhi that best expresses my thoughts about this victory: 'First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win,'" Culpepper, who serves as his own agent, said in an e-mail. "Now that I have won my freedom and I get to choose my next team, I am just like many other people who have to go out and find employment so that I can take care of my family."
I think its a very positive outlook on the whole situation. The NFL is a tough business and the francise owners are under a lot of pressure to have a winning team.

Red Sox Season Over
For the first time in 4 years, the Boston Red Sox will not be playing in the post season. Last night game, the last game of the season, was called off after the 5th inning due to the rain.
I was very lucky to have the opportunity to attend 5 games this year. The best games was on July 30th and August 11, both games the Red Sox came from behind and won! The last two games were a disapointment because it was very obvious that the Red Sox weren't going to the post season. The croud wasn't in it, and quiet frankly the Red Sox just didn't seem to be playing competitively.
Maybe the Red Sox will make the playoffs next year. However I don't expect that the Red Sox be out of the papers. Boston is a Baseball town, and the rumors of the changes that the head office will make will certainly be headlines to no matter what the Celtics and Bruins are doing.

Red Sox win!I know its been a while since I posted anything, but I have been pretty busy with work. I have been working on some pretty busy projects and have done a little bit of travel in the past few months.
The Red Sox are playing in the post season again! Once again the Red Sox nation will be up late every night partying like its 2004!
The Red Sox vs White Sox match up looks to be a good one.
