I’m headed out for a Doctor appointment so I don’t have time for a proper set of links this morning. I suspect a lot of people are getting an early start on the holiday weekend anyway. I’m working on a couple things for next week, as I’d like to try to get more features and do more than just links here. We’ll see how it goes.

Of all the stories in the papers this morning…and there are many of them, probably the one that is going to catch the most attention is the one from Jacke MacMullan, where she reports that Tedy Bruschi plans to play for the Patriots next season. This isn’t a 90% thing coming from a source, it’s directly from Bruschi.

Check out the BSMW Game Day Rear View for a recap of what happened last night on the field.

Christopher Price lists out 10 things we learned last night.

Kirk Minihane and Hector Longo serve up a pair of fantasy football articles.

If you have a chance to pick up a Boston Herald, Joe Fitzgerald (subscription only) has a column on former sports anchor Don Gillis, who really pioneered the role of the sportscaster in the Boston. The relatively brief column isn’t so much about his TV career, which is mentioned, but something that happened 60 years ago today, the Japanese surrender in Tokyo bay, and Gillis was there, stationed aboard the Battleship Missouri.

Bill Griffith looks at Boston College’s debut in the ACC and what the increased exposure will mean for the program. He talks to the new football play-by-play guy, Jon Meterparel about being able to recreate himself. Jim Baker has an extensive media column today, looking at coverage of college football, which begins in earnest this week, as well as high school football, US Open Tennis, and has some information on the Bruins NESN telecasts, where it appears Dave Shea will be dropped from his road play-by-play duties. It mentions a possible increased role for Dale Arnold as well.

Arnold will be doing a little hockey writing this season as well, as announced on the popular Ecklund’s Hockey Rumors website. Dale will be doing a regular column for the site, which plans a re-launch at http://www.hockeybuzz.com in the coming weeks.

David Scott takes a look at the new ESPN radio in Boston and what they might be all about and if they’ll present any sort of challenge to WEEI.
