The Celtics play on Christmas day. It’s about time the NBA woke up and got them back on the schedule.

Say what you want about off-the-field Gronk but this past week he was named recipient of the Ron Burton Community Service Award, named after the first player drafted by the Pats and a man revered for his community service. They don’t just give that award to anyone. It’s part of “being Gronk”.

So this stooge on ESPN (I say “stooge” because come on, really, there all stooges) has Yoan Moncada with the following projection – .300/.380/.550, 20-25 HR, 40-45 SB – not too shabby

Oh, you had a good week did you?? Dustin Pedroia’s week – 12 for 17 with 3 homeruns and a double.

DYK – tomorrow, Sept. 3rd is International Bacon Day. If you’re in the area, check out the San Jose Bacon Festival of America. That event starts at noon on Sept. 3 and lasts until 7 PM the following evening. Tickets are $9.99 online or $15 at the door for the fourth annual event.

Tomorrow is also the umpteenth annual Archambault/Conte Golf Extravaganza at Bradford Country Club. For a great cause, drop by for a hotdog, beer and help support a tremendous event! Registration/hotdogs/bar begins at 11am at the Baldi.

I don’t get into politics here but I can’t wait for the first presidential debate. Will easily be the most watched in history.

Teddy Bridgewater – what a shame. Nice guy and was slated to have a great season.

Top football days, ranked:

  1. First Sunday of the season
  2. Super Bowl
  3. Whenever Tom Brady unveils a new haircut

The best one I heard – Brady looks like a middle aged soccer mom after a workout.

Hermine. What the $%^& kind of a name is that?

College football. Enjoy the weekend!

If you didn’t know how to correctly pronounce Deutsche, you never could.

In case you’re not paying attention, after this 6-game trip to the left coast, the Red Sox last 23 games are against AL East opponents. 23

Much of this stuff I just hear/read/observe. Then again I do look at today’s headlines. I just came across this one: Why the type of underwear you wear matters to your vagina. Hmmm.

The following  has been going around social media. I’ve seen a couple of variations but any version is a classic.

A buddy of mine has two tickets for the 2017 Super bowl. Box seats plus airfares, accommodation etc. Unfortunately he didn’t realize when he bought them that the game is the same day as his wedding – so he can’t go.   If you’re interested and want to go instead of him, it’s at St Peter’s Church in New York City at 5 pm. Her name’s Louise.  She will be the one in the white dress.

Have a great holiday weekend everyone!

Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn”
