The Boston Bruins:
I love the Bruins. Too bad no one else seems to care. Perhaps its because they haven't done anything in the playoffs since 1999? And they haven't gotten within sniffing distance of the Stanley Cup since 1990? Yep, its been a while...
TV: I like Jack Edwards. Except for the fact that he seems to get very very excited when the other team scores. He's no Fred Cusick, but I think he's done a good job replacing Dale Arnold.
Radio: They're decent. It would be a trip to see Bob Ellis of WUML fame take over this job, but I have no complaints about the radio team.
The Boston Celtics:
Having rooted for this team during the M.L. Carr/Rick Pitino years and the train wreck that was last year, I wish I had a pitchfork to push everyone off the bandwagon who showed up when Kevin Garnett was acquired.
TV: Mike Gorman is great. Tommy Heinsohn's schtick is probably getting old, but it still cracks me up. I agree with him on the competence level of NBA officials and I enjoy the "Tommy Point" silliness, but I do miss "I! LOVE! WALTAH!"
Radio: Sean Grande is okay. Cedric Maxwell is unbelievably awesome. He's funny, smart, incisive and I get the impression that he's actually rooting against the C's. Yet I still like him.
The Boston Red Sox:
If I need a pitchfork to get rid of the C's Bandwagoneers, I need a steam shovel to clear out the Pink Hats and their Jason Variteck fetish. And can we please stop with the idiotic "Yankees Suck" garbage now that its actually true?
TV: Very good. I wish Jerry Remy would stop trying to sell me things. Is there anything better than watching the post game show and marveling at the Eck's mullet or Sam Horn's insane wardrobe choices?
Radio: Many people have a problem the fact that Joe Castiglione never gives the score of the game and gets unbelievably depressed when the Red Sox are losing. The score thing bothers me, but I get depressed when the Sox are losing so why shouldn't he?
New England Patriots:
The Super Bowl was depressing. But this is still the best team in the region, if not the country. Don't jump off the Tobin Bridge yet.
TV: I hate national broadcasters. John Madden is a perfect 10 on the unintentional comedy scale.
Radio: While I do appreciate that the broadcast team is ancient and in need of new blood, I really don't see what the hurry is.
