On Tom Brady: His Suspension, His Legacy
Sports

Full disclosure: I don’t like football. And I find the NFL’s stances on issues like player safety and domestic violence to be shameful. So I really don’t have any business busting out the hot sports takes on #Deflategate. Which is why I had Kevin Paul Dupont from the Boston Globe on with me today. He offered some interesting perspective on Tom Brady’s recent predicament, his legacy as a hero of Boston sports, and football fandom and fantasy. More

Sports

Steve Silva started us off with news from Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan: Red Sox veterans are growing weary of Hanley Ramriez. But isn’t this the Hanley we all expected? I said that yesterday’s Red Sox performance in Kansas City was what I’ve been expecting all season long, from the offensive fireworks to Wade Miley’s gutsy-yet-average performance. So yes, lot’s to talk about this week. And we wrapped it all up with tip of the hat to Chad Finn for his latest piece, which is a must-read. Especially if you’re a dad. More
