Sorting the drawer into ‘reporting’ and ‘opinion’ piles…

Congratulations to the Toronto Raptors. And a reminder that actual velociraptors were turkey-sized. Well, they were!

A 17 inning game? My word! When did the Red Sox get back to their hotel?

Anthony Davis to be a Laker, and no longer a Pel. What are you gonna do?

2011 aside, the Bruins seem destined to act as a local reminder of how hard it can be to win a championship series.

That ‘necessary reminder’ job used to be the NE Revolution’s fate. Perhaps it shall be again, and more. Here’s to a bit more success to them over their next 25 years.

Boy, that Somerville mayor really wants Kirk Minihane’s podcast to succeed!

That said, there still remains a chance that the Kirk to Barstool Sports thing winds up as a trainwreck.

News Item: Rare Blue Lobster Sent to Cape Cod Restaurant to Be Donated to St. Louis Aquarium. A nice gesture. Hopefully now people will stop calling Boston racist.

As a writer, John Rooke is a good public address announcer.

David Ortiz in ‘good’ condition is great news. Keep upgrading, Big Papi.

I hear tell the worst part about steeping your guinea tea is leaving the plastic bag on.

You can call it the Travelers Championship, but it will always be The Greater Hartford Open to me.

Ahhhh! Carpenter bees!!!

Harrison Burton in the #18 Toyota is a face to watch in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series.

A proposal, the United States switches to metric for real this time, if the rest of the world agrees to use clocks that count down and not up in soccer.

That Carla Gugino can still stretch a dress.

Did the Baha Men ever get to the bottom of that whole thing?
