A Bloomberg calculation—which relies on first-aid data from a couple hundred games, information from a lawsuit against the Red Sox, and a study from a medical journal-projects that foul balls and home runs injure 1,750 fans a year at America's stadiums.
Bob Kraft went on CBS This Morning to talk some Ray Rice, because that's an easy way to score points right now, and talked a very hard line on domestic abuse in the NFL. Here's the last time he was seen with Floyd Mayweather, known serial woman beater.
If you were closely following Boston Magazine's 2014 Best High Schools coverage—and who among us wasn't?—you could see this one coming from a Smoot away: The magazine is copping to major errors in its reporting and data gathering in compiling both the public and private school listings.
It seems like just a few months ago that we watched Meb win the Boston Marathon, mostly because it was only a few months ago. But here we go again with the first day of registration for the 2015 edition of the race, which opened at 10 a.m. EST.
That's assault, brother.
This kid was the smoothest person in Fenway Park Friday night. The 12-year-old got a foul ball in the fourth inning of the Blue Jays-Red Sox game, and handed it back to the young girl behind him without any hesitation. She was pretty happy.
Patriots QB Tom Brady was asked for his thoughts on former teammate Wes Welker, who's about to start serving a four-game suspension for amphetamine use. (One report claimed Welker took adulterated molly at the Kentucky Derby; Welker has denied it.)
Some people are fans of the New England Patriots. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the New England Patriots. This 2014 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group.
The Patriots kept Ryan Mallett along with Tom Brady and second-round pick Jimmy Garoppolo for their final roster cuts, and now it's clear why: They didn't want to release someone that could get a return. New England will reportedly ship Mallett to the Houston Texans.
The Deutsche Bank Championship is underway in Norton, Mass., and Golf Channel's coverage included a fullscreen about which PGA stars are hitting the longest drives. Then they titled those statistics "Boston Bombers."
Everyone's still a little shocked by the Patriots' trade of six-time Pro-Bowl guard Logan Mankins to the Buccaneers in exchange for TE Tim Wright and a fourth-round draft pick. But if you were taken aback, imagine how the guy who's been protected by Mankins for the past nine seasons must feel.
Arthur T. to buy the whole chain.
May God bless and keep you, MIT. Never change.
The Patriots have agreed to a trade. It does not involve Ryan Mallett.
This is it, folks. This just might be it. Your love of bacon will bring you to ruin, our ancestors said, but did we listen? Did we heed? No we did not. And now: Here we are, careening bacon-scented over the precipice of disaster. "My grandfather was alive in 2014," they will say, huddled furtive over a…
This Red Sox fan just straight-up dove across half the people in his row trying to get a foul ball like he was a member of the secret service trying to take a bullet for the President. He landed on his wife (presumably) and another woman and small child in the adjoining seats. Look how pissed she is!
