Patriots quarterback Tom Brady recently said he wants to play well into his 40s. The 35-year-old expounded on that thought in a USA Today story Thursday.
"I hope to play as long as possible," he said. "I don't know how long that's going to be.
"Honestly, in '08, when I had that knee injury, that really makes you appreciate what you're doing on a daily basis. Because there was a year that I missed, and I was like, 'Damn, I wish I was out there practicing every day.' To not have that opportunity was very frustrating. I love the game."
Brady said ultimately it will be up to coach Bill Belichick (assuming he sticks around) to decide when Brady's days in Foxboro are done.
"I'm still working hard, doing my job, because that's what he's looking for,"...
According to Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe, Red Sox principal owner John Henry is writing a book, in part in order to offer his point of view regarding the state of his baseball franchise. From Shaughnessy's column:
John Henry says he’s writing a book. He has been talking about it around Fenway, and Tuesday night he sent me an e-mail that read, in part, “I’ve been writing a book . . . I’ll finally have my perspective in print . . .”
Henry truly seems to think there is not much of a problem here. I tried to remind him that here in Boston the highs are higher and the lows are lower — that’s why 2004 was so great.
I tried to explain that I am not alone in critiquing what the Sox bosses are doing, and he said,...
As expected, cycling legend Lance Armstrong on Friday was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life from the sport for his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Although he continues to profess his innocence, Armstrong announced Thursday that he would no longer fight the charges. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said in a release Friday that Armstrong's decision to pass on arbitration requires an automatic lifetime ban and forfeiture of all results from Aug. 1, 1998. Armstrong won the Tour de France from 1999 through 2005.
According to Friday's USADA release:
Numerous witnesses provided evidence to USADA based on personal knowledge acquired, either through direct observation of doping activity by Armstrong, or through Armstrong’s admissions of doping to them that Armstrong used EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone and cortisone...
ESPN's Tim Kurkjian joined Dennis & Callahan guest hosts Dale Arnold and Jon Meterparel on Friday morning to talk about the floundering Red Sox.
Manager Bobby Valentine has become a lightning rod for criticism since before the season even started. Kurkjian, who noted that he's biased in Valentine's favor because he worked with him for a number of years at ESPN, acknowledged that Valentine might not be back for a second season.
"I thought it was a really good hire when it happened, but the more I look at it, the more I think I'm not sure he ever had a fighting chance, with all the injuries, the coaching staff, a young general manager working with him for the first time. I always thought Bobby would be back next year, that this just wasn't a fair fight and he deserves another year to take a look at this. And the more I watch this team, the more I wonder if he's even going to get a second year, which I thought was inconceivable a few months...
Roger Clemens is flirting with a comeback to MLB. He wants to postpone his Hall of Fame eligibility in order to create more time for his legacy to settle after the ignominious PED accusations made by his former trainer Brian McNamee. Everyone knows this. And it didn't take a great deal of reading in between the lines to figure it out. So, why is Clemens being so coy?
Via Don Burke of the New York Post:
“I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in,” Clemens said. “I wish I could worry about that and look that far ahead.
“It’s a lot of work to get back to where I was five years ago. ... We have some fun things planned. Maybe another surprise or two. We’ll wait and see what happens after Saturday.’’
The hope, from the perspective of Clemens and his supporters, appears to be that voters might have a different...
