Surviving Grady says farewell to Mike Napoli.

Yes, 2015 was a tough year for Napster. But it was far outweighed by what he brought to the table in 2013. May he forever run, buzzed and shirtless, down the Boylston Street of our hearts.

Let's remember that night in New York.

The oddest thing in the previously secret Olympics bid chapters was not the huge deficit or the denigration of opponents, but the reference to a state law that prohibits swearing at athletes and coaches and sporting events.

Because, yes, of course, Massachusetts has a law against that: MGL Chap. 272 Sect. 36A, which states, in its entirety: Read more.

So it turns out the fine people of Boston believe they will somehow manage to survive after all without the International Olympic Committee’s five-ring seal of approval.

Local residents have made it clear they are willing try to make do with merely being the home to Faneuil Hall, Boston Common, Harvard, MIT, the John F. Kennedy Library, Fenway Park and Bobby Orr.

The reports our neighbors to the north are not all that enthused about the Pan-Am games.
The Pan-Am games are sort of a tryout in an effort to host the Olympics. The reaction of Torontonians is telling.

Mayor John Tory is so exasperated that he has taken to lecturing them about their attitude.

Vote for Xander

Why, yes, of course there is no finer use for highway signboards than urging Massholes to get Xander Bogaerts to the All-Star Game.

The Boston 2024 Committee expects Nashoba Valley Ski Area to be a venue in its bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics. Just one problem: that fact is news to the operators of Nashoba Valley Ski Area. [..]

According to the documents obtained by Boston Magazine, the cycling event would take place at Nashoba Valley Ski Area’s property within Westford while the canoe event would take place at Nashoba Valley Ski Area’s tubing park in Littleton.

Yesterday, Mayor Walsh announced a clarification of his 'no public money' pledge for Boston 2014 Olympics.

"The first thing we'll do is give Boston 2024 every parcel of land owned by the City of Boston that Boston 2024 needs to do this thing right. Then we'll buy the land they need that we don’t own and give it to them," Walsh said. "While Boston 2024 investors are among the wealthiest and most highly compensated captains of industry in the Commonwealth, they can't bring the Olympics to Boston unless we give them what we have and they want."

F-bombs, shouting: Uncivil discourse on Boston's Olympic bid

Corey Dinopoulos, a co-founder of the Boston 2024 organizing committee who got the bid rolling three years ago, calls the tone "kind of depressing" for a world-class city with a chance to showcase itself.

"The city needs to calm down," he said. "People are expecting a lot from the organization. We're trying to plan for the next 15 years and that doesn't happen overnight. I think everyone needs some manners classes."

Patricia Shong, who died Monday, seems like she was a very nice lady: Devoted wife and mother, loyal worker. And a true Patriots fan:

Patricia enjoyed scrapbooking, cross stitching, pixel art, knitting, and crocheting. She relished weekly card night with the ladies. Patricia was known for being an avid reader which all who knew her can attest to based on her mini home library. She especially loved spending time with her family. She would also like us to set the record straight for her: Brady is innocent!!

The marketplace, however, may have a different verdict: Read more.
