Stealing a feature from one of my favorite non-sports blogs…
Here’s a quick recap of the February 2007 issue of Boston Sports Review:
BSMW’s own David Scott has the cover story with his report on Race in Boston Sports 2007
There is a look at the new documentary DVD “Basketball Man” celebrating the creator of the sport, Dr. James Naismith. in “The Ex-Files,” Jon Goode catches up with former Bruin Randy Burridge. Lenny Megliola profiles diehard Celtics fan Mike Rotundi.
There is a Q&A Session with Bill James, and Jim Baker has Jerry Trupiano speaking out about not being brought back by the Red Sox for the 2007 season. John Molori has a “meet the media” session with Donny Marshall.
David Laurila has a feature on Al Rocci, who was an attendant at Braves Field and Fenway Park from 1938 – 1974. Alex Speier looks at how Japan will become the land of the rising Sox. Bob Halloran calls Theo Epstein weird. Sam Bernstein looks back at when Mark Fidrych attempted a comeback with the Red Sox in 1982.
Albert Breer has a feature story on Troy Brown, who is really the Perfect Patriot. Matt Kalman zooms in on Bruins defenseman Andrew Alberts. Megliola also has a feature on dynamic Celtics rookie Rajon Rondo.
There are several other articles and sidebars sprinkled throughout the issue, which is on newstands now with a cover price of $3.99.
BSR is also running their annual Boston Sports Media Poll. (Shameless plug: feel free to vote for BSMW)
