Saying Good-bye to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett
Published on July 15, 2013 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I write about the sad departure of Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

Here's an excerpt:

"I didn’t have time to address this last week, but I don’t feel I can let the departure of beloved Boston Celtics Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett pass without comment. Especially Paul Pierce. This guy has played his entire career with the Celtics — he toiled thanklessly through some of the franchise’s more terrible and forgettable seasons, and then, when the team finally got good again, helped deliver a championship. The idea of Pierce playing for the Brooklyn Nets just seems wrong.

It’s easier to imagine Kevin Garnett playing for the Nets, if only because he started his career in Minnesota and came to the Celtics via trade. However, it’s impossible to overestimate what his arrival meant to the Celtics. It instantly transformed them into a championship contender. They went from being a young, somewhat scattershot team to a tough, gritty, defensive-minded squad just like that. And they were fun to watch. After watching one dismal season after the other, the championship team of 2007-2008 was a joy to behold. In addition to Pierce and Garnett, they had Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins. They were a great team, and thinking of their NBA finals victory over the evil Los Angeles Lakers still brings a smile to my face."

Taking Up Running
Published on June 30, 2013 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I write about how I've been running lately.

Here's an excerpt:

"About a month ago, I decided it was finally time to try jogging.

At the time, I hadn’t gone for a run in about 15 years.

During my senior year of college, I vaguely remember walking out to the athletic fields and going for quiet jogs in the afternoon. But I’m not sure I did this very often, because I hate running. I probably did it a few times, remembered how much I hate running, and quit.

I had always assumed I would never run again.

Even now, I’m a little baffled as to what brought about my change of heart and whether it will last. I know a lot of runners. Is it possible that hearing about their triathlons and marathons and 5Ks and Iron Mans was starting to make me feel inadequate? Or that I sensed running would be a good thing to add to my repertoire of physical activities? After all, I go for a lot of long walks. Would I be in better shape if I spent some of that time running?

I didn’t want to be that person who goes running for the first time in more than a decade and immediately gets a cramp and pulls a muscle, and so I decided to start slowly and cautiously.

The first thing I did was stretch.

I’d never really understood the point of stretching when I played sports, but I am no longer as young and limber as I once was, and stretching seemed like an essential step. Then I walked down to Lincoln Park, and willed myself to start running."

Washing My Hands Of Aaron Hernandez
Published on June 27, 2013 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I write about Aaron Hernandez.

Here's an excerpt:

"On Monday the New England Sports Fan Friend and I watched game 6 of the Stanley Cup playoffs together, and our conversation inevitably turned to what we euphemistically referred to as the New England Patriots’ 'tight-end problem.'

'These guys were supposed to be the future of the team,' I said. 'But Gronkowski keeps having surgery, and it looks like Aaron Hernandez is headed to jail.' Hernandez had yet to be arrested, but it was quite clear that an arrest was imminent, and on Thursday he was led away from his North Attleboro mansion in handcuffs. Almost immediately, the Patriots cut Hernandez, and I breathed a sigh of relief.

Innocent until proven guilty and all that, but I’ve read the indictment, and the reports about the February incident in which Hernandez is accused of shooting a man, and today’s shocking new report that police are investigating whether Hernandez is connected to a 2012 double homicide, and I don’t want the team I root for to have anything to do with Hernandez anymore. Because right now he looks like a guy who is on the fast track to life in prison."
