Say what you want about the chap, and I sure have in the past, but Dan Shaughnessy has pretty much hit the nail full on smack on the middle of it's shiny metal head today in the Globe. The whole drama of the last couple of days and it's implications on the Boston sports scene didn't really sink in for me until I perused the list of 'A+ list stars' in Shaughnessy's list.
''We are the town with Manny Ramírez, Tom Brady, Kevin Garnett, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Randy Moss, Ray Allen, Curt Schilling, Bill Belichick, Paul Pierce, David Ortiz, Adalius Thomas, Jonathan Papelbon, Tedy Bruschi, Josh Beckett, Rodney Harrison, Jason Varitek, Richard Seymour, and Eric Gagne. We have reasonable expectations of a World Series, a Super Bowl, and the NBA Finals. There never has been a better time to be a sports fan in Boston.''
Damn straight. Could not have put it any better myself.
