High School winter sports schedules remain benched

By LORENZO RECUPERO

Winter Sports at Everett Public Schools will remain on freeze until further notice, with no formal decision being made to allow school sports to resume in the city as of Tuesday night.

In December the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and the Everett Public Schools administration, including coaches agreed to allow Winter Sports to commence at Everett High School given a strict schedule and modified rules be implemented but a last-second blocking from the City prevented it from happening due to concerns about rising Covid-19 numbers.

If the City of Everett authorizes HS sports to continue, a 10-game basketball season could start the week of January 18 but it would come at the cost of hyper-modified gameplay and an NBA bubble-like schedule.

Patriot’s glory days were a sight to behold

Remarkable two decade Dynasty ends

By LORENZO RECUPERO

The Patriots lost on Sunday.

In the red zone, in a potential game-winning position with 37 seconds left on the game clock, quarterback Cam Newton fumbled the ball, helping cement yet another New England loss.

Which team (Bills) the Patriots lost to and the final score (27-24) means nothing in this story, though.

The latest loss, the Pats fourth straight, hasn’t been a thing since they dropped four in a row back in 2002.

Incidentally, via that factoid, we are pulled back in time enough to evoke memories of just one year before that, the 2001 season — the year the New England Patriots football dynasty began in earnest with a guy they call Tom Brady.

The Patriots and the Tide

We have had a wide variety of heated discussions with Patriots sports fans about the season to date.

Inarguably, this is the worst season in 20 years – and the season isn’t half over, yet.

The Patriots just don’t have it.

Cam Newton is not Tom Brady.

Brady playing with Gronk adds insult to injury during a season when Julian Edelman can’t get open, when the offensive line can’t move the ball into the red zone, when the defense has all but fallen to pieces.

Frankly, this season is the stuff of disaster. It is terrifying to think the remainder of the season might be worse than its beginning.

Now comes into this mix a season without Crimson Tide championship football.
