The Bruins pushed the Detroit Red Wings to the brink of elimination after a hard-fought 3-2 OT win at Joe Louis Arena last night. Boston now leads the series 3-1 and has a chance to close things out tomorrow at home.
That 3:00pm game will NOT be broadcast on NESN (the channel will still have pre and post game coverage, as will CSNNE) but will instead be on NBC.
Get all the Bruins coverage today and this weekend at BruinsLinks.com.
The Jared Remy situation is not going away quietly. The son of Red Sox NESN color analyst Jerry Remy isn’t doing his father any favors with his reported letters to Boston Herald columnist Margery Eagan and reporter Laurel J. Sweet.
The younger Remy was also in the news recently for his reported attack on another inmate earlier this month.
Meanwhile Jerry Remy continues on the air on NESN. I’ve made my case on this already, and it seems like what I feared is happening – this isn’t going away, and the more incidents that Jared has while in prison, and the more information that comes out – does that have an impact on how people are viewing Jerry Remy on the Red Sox broadcasts?
I think Jerry Remy has actually been very good this season – he seems to have picked things up a notch in terms of his analysis, and while he’s still goofing with Don Orsillo at times, much of the ancillary stuff that was getting annoying in the past has been eliminated or toned down.
It still feels like this is going to come to a head at some point and not end well for Jerry Remy. Does NESN ever say “enough?”
There was quite a bit made out of statements from former Patriots Brandon Spikes and Aqib Talib on the matter of the team and their reporting of injuries. Ben Volin reports that there has been found to be nothing to those allegations.
The allegations were played up quite a bit in the national media:
I’m sure all these will be cleared up now…
It’s cute that Christopher Gasper thinks we should give the Red Sox the benefit of the doubt because they’ve had lots of injuries and have not been able to get their full lineup out on the field.
I haven’t listened to a ton of sports radio as of late, but in the afternoons I’m finding that the renewed Dale and Holley show is much more appealing than Felger and Mazz, who every time I’ve turned in have been ripping the Bruins in Patriots-like fashion. Can’t be all puppies and unicorns.
I’ve checked in on The Big Show Unfiltered from time to time, and it’s nice to have that there as an option as well. After a lot of buzz at launch time, it will be interesting to see how things develop there and if they can keep is going and growing.
I wonder how many more hockey columns Mr Bruin, Dan Shaughnessy will have for us in the coming weeks. Bruins fans would just as well have Shaughnessy continue to ignore their team.
If Roger Goodell hadn’t messed with the schedule, we’d be having the NFL draft this week. Now it is still two weeks away. Now there’s talk of extended the draft to FOUR days in the future. Goodell seems determined to kill the golden goose by trying to mess up as many thing good things as he can. They’re just going to keep pushing and pushing, Thursday night games…when do Tuesday night games start? More playoff teams? Why not have all teams make the playoffs? 18 game schedule? Let’s for an even 20. Team in London? Let’s go to Moscow while we’re at it.
