New Year New Business

My how things have changes over the past year. The Celtics and Bruins are atop their respective leagues. The Sox almost made it to consecutive World Series appearances and the Pats go 11-5 (with out Tom Brady and don't even sniff the wild-card spot. What a time to be a fan. There isn't much to complain about, but I'll try.

The most recent Boston hating came in the C's game against the Trailblazers. Apparently you can beat the Celtics you just need 6 men on the floor.

The Pats got screwed by the Jets, Mangina, and Bret Favre again. This one didn't hurt quite as much as the 97 Super Bowl loss to Favre. In the end the Pats become the second team to finish 11-5 and not make the playoffs. This season will be highlighted by Matt Cassel's emergence. Still, tyring to forget losing the '08 Super Bowl will not be easy. Rumors are that the Pats will franchise Cassel and get at least a 1st and 2nd round pick for him. Not bad for a guy who wasn't supposed to make the team out of camp. Now all we can hope is Tom's knee isn't re-injured during
"The Honeymoon".

The Sox missed out on overpaying for Mark Texiera. The Yanks threw money at anything that had a pulse this off season including Sox back-up catcher Kevin Cash (Money). The Sox settle with Brad Penny, Josh Bard, and a rumored Hanely Ramirez trade. The good news is the Sox are young and will continue to contend with their current core. The great news with they Penny signing Alyssa Milano and Elisha Dushku sightings will be plentiful at Fenway this year.

Who would have thought the Bruins would be this good. I may have to start following these guys and forget the team traded Joe Thronton in his prime. Anyway Happy Fricken New Year!
