Hosted by none other than Sean McDonough, the first-ever Globies award show was held at the House of Blues in Boston on Tuesday. Some of the biggest Boston icons made appearances including David Ortiz, Rob Gronkowski, Patrice Bergeron as well as retired legends Doug Flutie, Troy Brown, Ray Bourque and others.
After the professional team MVP awards were given out, many Patriots players prevailed with pretty much any award they could possibly win. Tom Brady alone won six including Patriots MVP. Best moment went to Malcolm Butler for his Super Bowl interception. Julian Edelman won unsung hero, Gronk took home best quote and best social media campaign (with Big Papi), and Belichick won executive of the year and coach of the year. That’s 12 awards total for those of you counting at home. That’s what happens when you win rings.
Toward the end came the awards for inspirational figures who made significant imprints and contributions in the Boston sports culture in one way or another. Tom Menino, Milt Schmidt, little Liam Fitzgerald and Pete Frates were all recognized for their courage, spirit and dedication tied into Boston sports. It was a very special segment of the award ceremony and another reminded reason of what great things propagate through the community and fandom of professional sports.

The award show was fun and entertaining and very well done. Big thank you to the Boston Globe and their sponsors for putting this event together. Here’s to many more!
All proceeds will go to the Cam Neely Foundation for cancer care. Over the last 20 years, this incredible event has raised a mind blowing $8 million dollars! Funds raised at this show will help pay for Tufts Medical Center’s Marlene Neely Endoscopy Suite in memory of Cam’s mother who passed away from colon cancer.

Is it New Year’s Day yet? January 1, 2016 can not get here fast enough for Boston Bruins fans. After an extremely disappointing 2014-5 season, supporters of the Black & Gold are anxious to see the new look B’s.
And they will take center stage at the 2016 Winter Classic versus their hated rivals, the Montreal Canadiens. Both of these storied franchises will take the ice at the home of another storied and much hated (they hate us because they ain’t us) sports franchise, the New England Patriots.
If this video doesn’t get your Bruins hockey lovin’ blood pumping…you better check your pulse!
To be quite honest when the Bruins traded Reilly Smith and Marc Savard’s contract to Florida for Jimmy Hayes, I didn’t know much about the kid from Dorchester. I knew he was wicked tall at 6′ 6″ and a big body.
But after watching his goals from last season, he has a relentless nose for the net.
He scores the dirty goals by parking himself out in front of the cage which former Bruin, Milan Lucic failed to do too many times.
I am excited to see how much energy, grit and determination Jimmy Hayes brings each night for the team he great up rooting for.
He seems like the prototype Boston Bruin…..is it October yet?
