Finally a win, thanks to the newest Pedro.
Joy of Sox reports on an effort to shame the shameless during the series against the Yankees:
Four games, on four networks. Bring your anti-Boston Sports Media signs to the ballpark! Or make them once you're inside. The media's ego has exploded, and they're making not only themselves but us look like morons. It's time to let them know that they don't represent Red Sox fans, that it's not all about them, and that they need to leave the players alone and let them play ball!
Darnell McDonald tweeted shortly after 2 p.m. today:

The crowd at Fight Night at a June 1 teen event in Marlborough was clearly annoyed at the woman who walked onto the rink, but note the super-laid-back ref watching the whole thing and just giving a desultory whistle blow every so often.

End of game, end of story.
Jay Fitzgerald pays his respects:
I'm trying to remember the last time a losing Boston sports team garnered as much fan respect as this year's Celtics. The only team I can think of is the 1967 Red Sox "Impossible Dream" team.
Rhea Becker reports at least one Jamaica Plain resident has taken up extreme ironing:
About a week ago, early on a Friday morning, she set up her ironing boards and irons at a park on South Street, strung a mega-long extension cord across a busy street, picked up her Niagara spray starch and proceeded to iron the heck out of several shirts.
Ed. note: Extreme irony. Now there's a sport I could get into.
Boston Police report issuing a citation for "improperly made left turn" to a man who caused a minor collision at the intersection of Boylston and Ipswich streets shortly before 3 p.m. yesterday.
Police do not identify the driver who was at fault in a report longer than for most murders, but an educated Boston news consumer should probably be able to figure it out in less than 34 tries.
WBZ tweets that Carl Beane died in a car crash in Sturbridge today.
What was it Valentine said a couple weeks ago about reaching bottom?
