This year’s field consisted of 18 players and finished with 17 after Justin Rose withdrew following the first round on Thursday.

2016 World Series features Cubs, Indians and…Red Sox Reply

By James Payne and Ryan Fitzgerald – 1851 Staff & Co-Editor-in-Chief

The Chicago Cubs are going to the World Series. First time anyone can say that with truth to it since 1945. The Cleveland Indians will make their first appearance since 1997. The Cubs haven’t won it all in 108 years and the Indians haven’t taken home the trophy in 68 years. History is before us and it feels humbling to witness it. But you know who else is in the World Series this year? A lot of former Boston Red Sox.

Bruins honor two legends before home opener Reply

By James Payne – 1851 Staff

After starting the season on a three game road trip, winning two and losing one, the Bruins returned to Boston for their 2016 home opener. They faced off against the New Jersey Devils at the TD Garden on Thursday, Oct. 20 and skated to a 2-1 win. What caught the eyes of those watching wasn’t what happened during the three periods but rather the ceremonial puck drop before the game.

Previewing the Bruins 2016/17 season Reply

By James Payne – 1851 Staff

The Boston Bruins are coming off a disappointing season after failing to make the playoffs for the second consecutive year. Their big acquisition of the off-season was signing forward David Backes from the St. Louis Blues, and veteran center Dominic Moore, who makes the Bruins his tenth team in a 13-year career thus far. The Bruins lost Loui Eriksson and Chris Kelly to free agency, and bought out Dennis Seidenberg’s contract.

Ortiz’s career ends in sickening fashion 1

By Ryan Fitzgerald – Co-Editor-in-Chief

This moment was always coming, but I’m not sure anyone thought it would come like this. Even if you didn’t think the Sox would win it all, I don’t think you predicted this. A sweep? C’mon. After all he has done for the Sox and entire city of Boston, that’s how Papi’s career is going to end? The Cleveland Indians sweep the Boston Red Sox three games in a row? No. He has to come back right? No. One more year? No. That was a dream, more like a nightmare. The Sox are still playing tonight. Nope. It’s over. And it really hurts.

Sox and Pats look for wins on Sunday Reply

By James Payne – 1851 Staff

The last time the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox played on the same day was nearly three years ago, October 13, 2013. I remember this distinctly because I was at the Patriots game against the New Orleans Saints at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots were losing late in the game. I left early (per my dad’s request) and while we were walking to the car we heard a roar from the stadium as Brady threw a game-winning touchdown pass with five seconds to spare.

Remember, fantasy football isn’t real Reply

Oh Sundays. We love them for football, nachos, and the community feeling we get from spending game day with friends to watch our favorite team compete. But what some of us have come to love even more about Sundays is managing our own football team. Well, fantasy football team.
