The Sports Edge – End of an era?

Some of the greatest duos in entertainment history had careers together that were all too brief. Martin & Lewis, Simon & Garfunkel, Calvin & Hobbes, Britney & K-Fed - OK, I might have reached too far for that one, but you get the point.

The Sports Edge - Some big game #Hunters

Not long after becoming the youngest Division I head football coach in America, Joe Harasymiak began using the #Hunters hashtag in social media conversations about his Black Bears team. More than just a slogan, it was a way of doing business for coaches and players alike, with the clear message that they had specific goals in mind and would be determined in that quest.

The Sports Edge - Trading places

By the time you read this, the major league baseball trading deadline will have come and gone, the 'experts' will have weighed in on the winners and losers, and the Red Sox will likely find new ways to disappoint fans down the stretch. New Red Sox boss Dave Dombrowski has been proactive both in the offseason and in advance of the deadline but while he may have made some good deals, Double-D has a way to go to join the ranks of truly memorable trades that I've assembled in my unscientific list of the greatest moves in the history of the game.

A boy of summer

We're still in that part of spring where it's as likely to be a raw, windy 38 degrees as it is to be sunny and 70 but it won't be long until summer is here, offering youngsters of our state the days of leisure they've been dreaming about for months.

May daze

I have so many topics to write about its making my head spin right round baby right round. (Anytime I can get some 80's music lyrics in the first sentence, it's going to be a good column.)

An injury to Derek Rose was just what the doctor, as in Doc Rivers, ordered. Now instead of losing in the second round, the Celtics will most likely beat the 8th-seeded Sixers and play in the Eastern Conference Finals. I know KG and crew had some success against Miami late in the year, which has Green Teamers thinking another trip to the Finals. But as much as I can't stand Lebron and the Heat, me getting my own reality show is more likely than a Celtics series win, which means the 'New Big Three' era in Boston will end. It's been a nice five-year run resulting in one NBA title and another Finals appearance. Let's be happy with that because KG, Ray Allen and maybe even Rondo will be somewhere else next season.

Joe Buck won the sports Emmy for best play by play recently. Yes, he is smooth, knowledgeable and talented on Fox Sports. But do you know anyone who enjoys his play by play? Me either. It's like when they give the Oscar for Best Picture so some artsy flick that five people on the entire planet took the time to see. Buck is good, like caviar. But I don't know many people who really like either one.
