I will try not to make this ALL about the Patriots and Red Sox. I’m not sure why, but I will try.

The Boston Bruins have opened their new hockey rink in the Boston Landing complex along the Massachusetts Turnpike in Brighton. The Bruins will practice at the facility, which is owned and was developed by the real estate branch of sneaker company New Balance.

OK, now back to the Pats and Sox.

It’s so much easier getting out of bed after win(s) like last night than it is after taking a beating, isn’t it?

I can’t stop shaking my head about last night’s dismantling of the Houston Texans. O’Brien, Romeo, Larry Izzo (ST coach) must also be shaking their heads and thinking; “I guess he didn’t teach us everything…”

I know it’s not fair to think ahead but Brady, healthy Gronk (assuming he gets healthy), healthy Hightower, Ninkovich. The future’s so bright, I have to wear shades.

I’ll admit it right here, I’m not (or at least wasn’t) a John Farrell fan. Haters now will argue that the Sox should have about 98 wins instead of their current 89. And of course, if they don’t win it all, he’ll be to blame. Tough crowd. Tough crowd indeed.

Early on the Sox were so fun to watch, but then something happened. It was still fun watching the kids, but the pitching went south and the bats (many of them) went cold. The Sox are again incredibly fun to watch and they are having a blast themselves. Did you see Hanley two nights ago in the dugout during his night of rest? Crackin’ up the entire game. The outfield and the fun they have? Just plain fun… and good.

Happy 50th anniversary to Star Trek – that’s for you, Sean.

So you think Cy Young’s 511 wins is an unbreakable record? He pitched 749 complete games!

Aside from the few others in the mix, how can you argue Ortiz over Mookie for MVP? That is saying that defense doesn’t matter. Remember, Ortiz sits down for ½ of every game. Put him in the Hall, but he’s not the MVP.

Nice job John Tortorella with the US World Cup hockey team. It was your team. You get the blame. 0-3 in the prelims. Let the NHL season begin!

Can I get a quarter-keg with that?? – Starting this month, Google parent Alphabet will be running a weeks-long experiment called Project Wing, in which drones will deliver burritos from Chipotle Mexican Grill to students at Virginia Tech. Part of the aim is to test how well the packaging protects the food. The Federal Aviation Administration–approved experiment could lead to more routine drone deliveries.

Yaaaaa-hooooo! Not!

You know I couldn’t/can’t stand Peyton. And don’t talk about the “respect” bullshit (are you listening Jeter and Mariano?). However, I think the “Peyton on Sunday morning” shtick is hilarious.

R.I.P. Mrs. Accardi – a great lady, a fighter, a beautiful woman.

And finally –

“Oh, it’s a long, long while
From May to December
But the days grow short
When you reach September
When the autumn weather
Turns the leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time
For the waiting game”
