There’s Life In This Here Blog

After a few hours of work, I imported all my posts from my old blog (it’s still up) on  The posts were moved here more for posterity than anything else.  I have every intention of making this blog a place where I post a few times a week, if not more, about the things that are relevant to me – sports (mostly Boston-based), food/drink, and random events that occur over time.  Hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride.  And, if you do enjoy what I write here – tell your friends!
