Re: Game 18, 2019-20: George Washington (1/18)

Fool me 800 times, shame on me.

First game since the DK era finally ended. Looked like the same old same old. Life is way too short for this crap, OUT. I need a Pioneer Valley fix you’ll find me at the Green River Fest.

Re: 1/29/17 poll - Fire DK?

I just know the idea that a big east guy named Lappas would get us back on track and we should forego the NIT to fire Bruiser was not a good decision in hind sight. Many of us didn't need hind sight to call that one. Villanova was ready to run Lappas out of town on a rail. Flint was actually growin...

Mmmm, that one looks good too. Montague, a dining mecca, who'd have thunk it?

Here's one I just discovered out in Montague:

Re: Matt Kost (Kosty) - Everyone please read

I never met him, but this is terrible news. I had to go check his FB page to put a face to the name and I feel bad for his beautiful family. Only the good die young. RIP Dude.

Re: Let's Eat, Again

I've got a new discovery for you Ed, The Jenkins Inn over in Barre. It's a B&B but they're open to the public for dinner. Only seats 14 and reservations are required. We were told during the warmer weather you better do that 2 weeks out. We also discovered the Eagle Hill School's Cultural Center ove...

Re: Game 18, 2014-15: Rhode Island

There's not alot going on in Amherst as far as I'm concerned. I'd send our URI fan to Northampton, except getting over there is no fun at all. Listen to Swampy, stay on University Drive. I like the ABC the best, but that's because on those rare occasions I make it to a game I'm travelling alone and ...

I was expecting the worst when I hit that Davidson site, but it wasn't bad at all. The inevitable intolerant bigot, a couple of his friends tap dancing around trying to defend the indefensible, and mostly good stuff that one would expect from a quality School, which Davidson certainly is. I'm more d...

Figured I would mention that Putney has been at the rec center at UMass a ton recently and has been playing pickup games. Just wanted to make a point to post how genuine and humble of a person he is. He has been playing on courts not considered the "top court" and has not been overly cocky or anyth...

Symphony Garage on Westland Ave is about as easy as it gets in that area. Also works for Fenway, if you don't mind getting a little exercise.

What kills me about these Xavier guys is that they think they're UNC....and they're not even George Mason, at least in terms of how far they go in tournaments. Please. Xavier has been to the NCAA's 20 times in the past 25 years and have 2 Elite 8's, 3 Sweet 16's, and 7 trips into the second round. ...

BC is a measuring stick game to some degree and I will feel pretty good if we win. The real measuring stick game, though, is FSU, particularly if we beat BC, since it will be interesting seeing how we play after a big win. A win over BC is always welcome, but you know, if they don't beat the Eagles...

Yup Gibbs was mentally a bit fragile. Which is exactly where a good coach can help. The whole situation was partly just bad timing where fragile met inexperience. As for Lowe being the only guard who could do the run-and-gun, I don't think so. One of the few bright spots the past few seasons has bee...
