My brother was kind enough to give me and my Cousin Aaron his tickets to the July 4 game as he had plans with his young family. Thanks, Bro, for giving up your seats in the right field bleachers on arguably the hottest day I've ever sat at a ballgame. LOL We had a very good time, gave my new car it's first roadtrip, and watched the Sox win (excuse me, there's a f'ing mosquito in here) and it was a nice excuse for cold beer and hanging with Cuz.

Obviously the Bruins had a headline week last week playing in the Cup Final. Now comes new that they've traded Tyler Seguin to Dallas in a seven-player deal, Nathan Horton is off to Columbus, Andy Ference to Edmonton and now a headline that they've signed Jerome Iginla to a one-year deal. I'm not sure about these deals -- Iginla should be a good fit, as will Lui Eriksson but the Bruins gave up a franchise player and did not get one in return. They've added to their depth, replaced the losses of Peverley, Seguin, Horton and Jagr; added a good? young two-way defenseman and got a couple of prospects but still in my opinion do not have the sniper they sorely need, nor did they get a high draft pick that could result in that franchise player (which incidentally is what I understand Calgary offered them before the draft, although the 6th pick may not have gotten them that player). We shall see, we shall see. Would love your thoughts on this.
Then there's the Celtics. Will they trade Rondo too? But the big recent news is the signing of young phenom head coach from Butler, Brad Stephens. I know it's just TV interviews but from those interviews I really like this guy and
