It was a tragic week for the University of Maine community. Darius Minor was a young man with tremendous promise and potential. He was embarking on a new chapter of his life as an incoming freshmen, excited about the opportunities ahead as a Black Bear student athlete. He passed away last week during a workout […]
This winter, for the first time in more than two decades, there will be a new voice calling University of Maine hockey games on the radio. Dan Hannigan is pursuing a new career and the demands of a long hockey season just don’t fit well for him any longer. Dan will be missed. Just like […]
As training camp opens, the NFL’s Top 100 players of 2018 list came out a couple of weeks ago and something has been bothering me ever since. Tom Brady was voted by the players as the #1 player in the NFL for the second straight year. Gronk was ranked 15th. Those were the only two […]
OK. I know you’re busy. So if you have not been paying attention, let me tell you the Red Sox are pretty freakin’ good. No. Really freakin’ good. They are on track for 113 or so wins this year. Yup. That would be the most ever. They have not won more than 100 games in […]

He’s complex, sometimes loving but often grouchy. And theres a complex set of rules that the Red Sox must follow or chaos indeed will ensue.
As I continue to “mature” (a polite way of saying becoming more creaky) I find myself joining certain clubs, often without even realizing I’ve done so. One such club: the B.I.M.D. club. I realized I was a member of this club the other day, when one of our teenaged grandkids asked for a ride to […]
It’s remarkable how NBA free agency can send the national sports media into a frenzy. No, I’m not talking about LeBron James signing with the Los Angeles Lakers. We all expected that.
