One commercial you probably didn’t see at this year’s Superbowl (with the exception of our 13 readers from North Platte, Nebraska- hi guys!) featured Will Ferrell in an ad for Old Milwaukee. The ad was only aired in one TV market, the aforementioned North Platte, home to 15,180 TV homes, but has since gone viral [...]
BOSTON- It started as a night in which Bruins fans held their breath as they waited to hear the status of star player Patrice Bergeron, who was inactive for the second consecutive game to a concussion. And once the puck dropped at the start of the game, it took all of 13 seconds for the [...]

For [...]
David Ortiz is off to another disappointing start this season, hitting 5-29 (.172 AVG) with a whopping 15 strikeouts, the most in baseball to go along with an outrageous 47% strikeout percentage. The average strikeout rate is 17%. Many writers have called for him to take a seat and have peppered him with questions about [...]
When the Bruins traded away team leading scorer and rising star Phil Kessel to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for first and second round picks in the 2010 Entry Draft as well as a first rounder in the 2011 Draft, Boston fans were put in the always enjoyable position of rooting for a hated [...]
