Francona Leads Red Sox To Win Two World Series

When it comes down to it, the Big Four of the Boston Celtics, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo, didn’t just help bring the team their 17th title in 2008 (and first since 1986), they also helped bring a franchise that was struggling for relevance back on top. While Celtics reached the Finals once again in 2010, you could argue that the team’s 2012 run to the Conference Finals were among their most impressive. Because of their age, no one thought they would make it that far. With this in mind, it’s weird to see that the “Big Four” is no more as Ray Allen took his talents to South Beach as a member of the Miami Heat. While there are a lot of good memories of Ray Allen in Celtic green, Winston Salem TV offers, there is going to be a good amount of hurt feelings not only that he left, but that he left to go to a rival. In a sense, this is the second time in just over two months that the Heat punched Celtic fans in the gut. While Celtic fans may say goodbye to their beloved Ray Allen, time warner in detroit, there is a good amount of them that don’t wish him well.

Red Sox Manager Terry Francona Leaves The Red Sox After 8 Years

In an eight season stint as club manager, Terry Francona ended Boston’s 86-year-old World Series Championship drought by leading the Red Sox to titles in 2004 and 2007. In 2004, Francona’s first year with the Sox, they became the first MLB team ever to win a playoff series after facing a 3-0 deficit, somehow rallying to win four straight against the powerful New York Yankees for the American League title. This momentum powered the Red Sox to sweep the St. Louis Cardinals Read the rest of this entry…

Fenway Park The Oldest Major League Still In Use

Clad in a red brick faade that resembles a row of shops or factories, Fenway Park opened to the public in 1912 and has been a prominent Boston landmark ever since. The park was built to replace an older wooden park and give the Boston Red Sox a permanent home. Over the years seating has increased from 27,000 seats to 37,000. The park has undergone several renovations, most notably in 1934, 1946-7 and the early 2000s which improved the layout of the field, installed lights for night Read the rest of this entry…

The Boston Red Sox and the Curse

Most people out there, even if they aren’t baseball fans, know about the Red Sox and the Curse of the Bambino. While most people used the expression in a joking manner, many super fans took it seriously which is why, in 2004 when the Red Sox finally won the World Series, it was such a big deal. Even if you don’t follow the team, it was truly something and you can probably find footage of the iconic on the internet or even on any of those www.satellitetv-hq.com sports channels.

For those of you who might still be scratching your heads, I’ll break it down. The Curse of the Bambino was specifically used to explain the Red Sox and their failure to win the World Series in the 86 years from 1918 to 2004.

The “bambino” in the curse refers to Babe Ruth who, after carrying the Red Sox through five World Series victories, was sold off to the Yankees. After this event, for the next 86 years, the Red Sox never won a world series and became the punch line in an almost century-long joke about failure.

All of that changed in 2004, as you now know. Whether or not there was ever any real curse is still unknown.

Fenway Park Celebrates Its 100th Anniversary

When it comes to iconic Major League ballparks, Fenway Park is one of a kind. Along with Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Fenway is one of the last remaining “cathedrals” of sports. While ballparks have gotten “bigger” since, there are few that are as beautiful, and imposing, as Fenway Park. While the Green Monster may look impressive on the television screen, those who come to the park to see the Sox play are amazed at how big, and close, the wall truly is. For 100 years Red Read the rest of this entry…

2012 Marks The End Of “The Big Four”

It was quite a run for the “Big Four”. While they may be known as some of the most dominate players in basketball history, the “Big Four”, Rajon Rando, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, helped bring a relevance to the Boston Celtics that had been lacking since the 1980s. While the Lakers had successfully reinvented themselves into a team by the late 90s, it took the Celtics more than 20 years to find an identity to replace the Read the rest of this entry…

TD Garden Is Home To Celtics And Bruins

TD Garden is a 19,600 seater sports and events center, that is the home to NBA basketball team, the Boston Celtics, and NHL Ice Hockey team, the Boston Bruins. The TD Garden also presents family shows and live music events, with a total of around 200 live events taking place each year.

Celtics Shooting Guard Avery Bradley Needs More Surgery

After undergoing surgery during May to end his playoffs run, Avery Bradley thought he might have fixed the problems with his left shoulder. That wasn’t exactly the case, as it turns out he needed the exact same procedure, arthroscopic stabilizing surgery, to repair problems in his right shoulder. This leaves Bradley’s status for the beginning of the season in question, and the Boston Celtics scrambling to fill the void. The average recovery time for a surgery of this nature is around 6 months, which projects his return for somewhere around the beginning of January. Read the rest of this entry…

Celtics Rebound By Signing On Jason Terry

The Boston Celtics have signed Jason Terry. Terry is not considered to be a real explosive player at the rim. Even so he is somewhat deadly shooting off the dribble. He is not just a shooting guard as he has frequently demonstrated his ability to be the primary ball handler when on the floor. This will give the Celtics a great amount of flexibility in their lineup.

Aside from his playing ability Terry will be able to immediately boost the Celtics bench by making it one Read the rest of this entry…
