TWO AND NINE? Can you believe that? The Sox have gone 2-9 to start the season. This may be the most disappointing season in the history of this glorious franchise. This is a disaster. We need to get rid of Tito immediately. There is no doubt he has lost the players in the clubhouse. How else can you explain this epic failure? Sox Nation will not stand for a loser. We once waited 86 years to win a World Series; we will not wait more than five years to win again. Drastic action is needed immediately. The season can still hopefully be saved. The most storied franchise in the history of baseball will not be denied.
Goodness what is wrong with the Celtics. They have fallen all the way to third in the Eastern Conference. This is completely unacceptable heading into the playoffs. This team has just collapsed since the Kendrick Perkins trade. It ruined everything. We even lost to Miami the other day! This team is critically struggling. It's been a whole three years since this team won a championship, and we can wait no longer. Drastic action is needed immediately. Danny Ainge was responsible for the Perkins deal; clearly, he must be fired. The season can still hopefully be saved. The most storied franchise in the history of basketball will not be denied.
On the plus side, only three months until the Patriots report to training camp! We here at the Globe are extremely optimistic about the coming season. Yes, last year's disappointing loss to the Jets in the playoffs still stings, but unquestionably Jets' coach / foot fetishist Rex Ryan must have cheated. Our coaching staff would never do that; Rex Ryan makes us sick. But it's time to look forward not back, and Tom Brady will undoubtedly once again lead us to the Promised Land. It's been a whole seven years since the Pats found Super Bowl glory; there is no doubt that epic drought will end this year. The most storied franchise in the history of football will not be denied.
The sporting event that we here at the Globe are most looking forward to however is the Boston Marathon this coming Monday. So many interesting story lines this year. Can Cheruiyot win his sixth race in the past nine years? And the emotional return of Marathon legend Joan Benoit Samuelson has touched a resonant chord in all of us. But once again, it will be the stories of the lesser known runners, and the sight of 25,000 marathoners lining up to start that will make the Marathon the wonderful spectacle it's been for over a century. The most storied race in the history of running will not be denied.
Bruins-Canadiens Eastern Conference quarter-final starts tomorrow night at 7 PM at the TD Garden
