Good starting pitching is a wonderful anti-depressant.

This is not the way you defend the Cup, Sidney.

The playoffs can be fun once you realize that the regular season meant less than nothing.

Concussed

Posted by Charles P. Pierce April 26, 2010 02:56 PM
It seems to be better than even money that Mark Savard will play at least some for the Bruins tonight as they try to close out the Buffalo Sabres. I believe this decision to be competitively unnecessary, economically unsound, and morally indefensible.

The Bruins do not need -- or, more to the point, they ought not to need -- Savard to beat Buffalo one more time. They beat the Sabres three times already without him. They should be able to rest him for the balance of this series and still be able to close the deal, especially tonight, at what is undoubtedly going to be a feral evening at the Garden. This, in turn, would protect further a player in whom the Bruins have made a substantial investment, rather than risking him in a game in which they shouldn't need him, and taking the chance that a single concussion becomes a syndrome. (Please see, "Lindros, Eric" for details.) And, having been said that, playing Savard tonight is reckless and unnecessary, and puts the lie to hockey's expressed concern about head injuries.

Good luck to you, Brady Quinn and Kyle Orton, you godless heathens.

OK, somebody has to panic. Might as well be me.

Doesn't "Poulter" sound like some Victorian synonym for a morals offense?

If Tiger's going to have as tough a time as Ali did, he's going to have to work a lot harder than this.

Well played

The Red Sox took a lot of grief -- much of it wholly justified -- for their Opening Night extravaganza that included performances by demon children and the rock 'n roll Undead. But the team did something right last night in the announcement that Tommy Harper would be one of four inductees into the team's Hall of Fame. Harper could qualify on numbers alone. However, and this is the impressive part, the team's press release also mentioned at length the incident in 1984 in which Harper, at considerable personal and professional peril, blew the whistle on the team's inexcusable involvement with a segregated Elks Club at its old Spring Training headquarters in Winter Haven, Florida.

Now the team deserves permanent scorn for still having been involved with the remnants of white supremacist culture 16 years after the death of Dr. King, and the release itself was written in historically neutral language, as though the team's connection to a segregated establishment was something that just sort of happened and nobody noticed until Harper did. Nonetheless, mentioning it at all, much less including it as a key part of Harper's case to be in the Red Sox Hall, bespeaks a certain honesty with the past that is refreshing, given what had gone before.

When my brain begins to reel from my literary labors, I make an occasional cheese dip.

Your talk is surely the handiwork of wisdom because not one word of it do I understand.

I am sorry, said the Pooka,
but I am afraid that it is my duty
to make the matter public.
