I was all ready to complain about Dave Gavitt going unmentioned in this post but the joke is on me. It's interesting to note that although this is a B1G/Big East match up it is not part of the 8 annual contests that make up the "Gavitt Games" series currently going on this week between the two conferences.

How far back do you have to go with the blog to get the reference? I've been reading for 8 years and I still don't get it. I love a good inside/running joke but there's gotta be a more effective phrase to solicit donations. Something like "Support the Blog" would get the point across without alienating new readers and potential donors.

I'm all for the site making as much money as possible from sponsors, merchandise, magazines, and donations. That being said, "Beveled Guilt" should be renamed.

Education and software/tech are probably the biggest industries around here so Boston would be a good choice for employment prospects. The big software/tech areas would be Kendall Square and the Rt. 128 belt. Teaching jobs are everywhere. I wouldn't buy a place until you both have landed jobs and get an idea of what your commutes will be like.
The housing stock is extremely old and expensive for what you get. That's the biggest drawback to living here. I'm a lifelong New Englander and I love my home but find it hard to justify paying these prices. You're coming from NYC though so it will actually be a little cheaper. Boston is not NYC as I'm sure you are aware since you've spent time here and your wife is fromNewton. It's much less cosmopolitan which can be both good and bad.

Poor guy fell asleep behind the wheel and drove into a pond because he's been practicing so hard and giving back to the community. This is a good lesson for athletes everywhere not to let their professional and charitable commitments become so numerous that it drives them to the point of exhaustion. Denard almost killed himself for us.

Awesome! You guys are gonna love the monster seats. I was at the game yesterday too and saw a few Michigan hats. You weren't in the center field bleachers by any chance were you?
|26 weeks 2 days ago||I love drinking and I love||
I love drinking and I love college sports but I don't think putting them together is such a good idea. I always thought one of the only admirable things the NCAA did was to leave that money on the table. It's one of the last remaining differences between college sports and the pros.

You ever notice how they always open the beers before they give them to you at sporting events? It's to make them less effective as projectiles.

I wanted them to make the jump and thought it would be successful but it hasn't worked out. They should drop down. They just don't have the full support of the school, fans, or the state.

Thanks. I alternate between Campbells and Progresso depending on what's on sale. Gotta always have a few cans around.

Hey, does anyone know if the team still eats clam chowder the night before the game?

This is a false flag operation by Adidas.

I think the Pats were 14 point underdogs in that game. Brady and Belichick and the Pats' dynasty maybe never gets started without Ty Law taking that pick to the house.

Would it kill them to plant some grass around that?

I'm really struggling with this one. That's about the worst way to lose a game that I can possibly imagine. Just absolutely brutal. This is gonna stay with me for a long time.

The Boston Globe wrote about Maurice back in 2012. It's a sad situation with his father but he really seems like a great kid who has everything in perspective.

We legalized medical marijuana in Mass like 4 years ago and are still waiting for the first dispensary to open but I bet they'll have Draft Kings closed by Week 3. Typical Puritanical bull crap from this state.

I get a lot of enjoyment from reading your posts on here, listening to you on the MGoPodcast, following you on twitter, and checking in on the JCB. Here's to many more years of the entertaining and unique perspective you bring to this community. Go Jamie! Go Blue!

Those look fine. I'm all for simplifying things and think maybe Harbaugh and the team are rallying behind that. I'm so glad they did away with Brandon's merit badge program.

Vince has only missed 18 games in a 12 year career that has included 21 playoff appearences. Most of them were from 2 years ago when he tore his achilles. He came back last year and played all 16 games plus won the Super Bowl. I get why people are concerned about his age but he's gonna be fine. He's still doing things like this:

It's crazy that Vincent Smith is more inspiring off the field than on. I didn't think that was possible.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||I think BC should be higher||
I think BC should be higher on that list in reality. I've lived around Boston for my entire life and have only known 2 non-alum BC fans. It's the combination of a lack of interest in college sports in the area and the fact that people really find BC to be arrogant and annoying.
Maybe if they were successful it would be different but they're not. They caught lightning in a bottle with Doug Flutie in the 80's and haven't done anything since. They fired their most successful recent football coach for daring to interview with the NFL and fired their most successful basketball coach of all time for no apparant reason. They are just the worst.
EDIT: I should also mention that if you do care about college sports in this area you were likely a Big East hoops fan and hold a grudge against BC for single-handidly starting its demise to go play schools below the Mason Dixon line. Did I mention I don't like BC?
