Play ball; when 'wireless' meant radio; on the green

161 to go
Phillipe was on suicide watch when news broke that the New England Patriots had allowed Wes Welker to sign with the Denver Broncos. And when the Red Sox opened the season April 1 against the damn Yankees in New York, P. had his gun to his head once again.

Hey cranks, peep what the ballists are playing!

Return to Tradition
With the Boston Red Sox sitting in fourth place and virtually all their players struggling or injured, it really couldn't be a finer time for baseball fans to rediscover what we actually love about the sport.

Oh No, Tannenbaum

Ho-ho . . . No; adios, Ken McKay; talking baseball; remembering a guitar giant
P&J used to think that when it came time to cull the herd in America, those folks who waited two days outside Walmart or Best Buy to take advantage of discounted shopping on Thanksgiving night or early Black Friday morning should be at the top of the list.

Talking the art of pitching with Theo, Schill, and Peter Gammons

Payoff pitch
There's a saying in baseball: you can never have too much pitching. If that's the case, you've come to the right place.

Search-term smackdown: Boston rivalries settled with Google Books Ngram Viewer

 Golden Ngrams
Two weeks ago, Google chucked a shiny new Web toy down the chimneys of Internet-research nerds everywhere: the Google Books Ngram Viewer, a search tool/treasure hunt that shows you the frequency of specific words in literature going back to the 1500s.

The worst and best of Boston sports in 2010

Jock strapped
The Patriots are 12-2, the Red Sox won Hot Stove season, the Bruins are skating off skeins of wins thanks in part to the pickup of an 18-year-old Wunderkind who may be the second coming of Jesus on ice skates, and the Celtics have twice dunked the Heat.

Review: Basho Japanese Brasserie

A tasty fusion of new and traditional Japanese fare
Weirdly situated in the Fenway, this large restaurant from the owners of Back Bay's Douzo conveys an immediate sense of space well apportioned, with the minimalist fascination of the best haiku.

Riot squads

While Boston chilled, LA burned. What makes fans in some cities go wild — win or lose?
On the morning that the Celtics and the Lakers readied for Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, framing one of the most storied and intense rivalries in pro sports, the police departments of Boston and Los Angeles geared up for the worst.

Bandwagon fans gear up

Benchwarmers
Only after buying a "Beat L.A." T-shirt, methodically checking ESPN for World Cup updates, and watching every installment of the NBA Finals with a religious fanaticism, has the hard truth settled in: I am a bandwagon fan.

Curse and worse

Johnny Baseball is stuck in the minors
The high point of Johnny Baseball , the new musical receiving its world premiere from the American Repertory Theater (at the Loeb Drama Center through June 27), comes two-thirds of the way through the second act.

A Rhode Island filmmaker’s tribute to the Good War

  Heroes
Amid the moral ambiguity of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — the handwringing over weapons of mass destruction, drone attacks, and the rights of detainees — there is something startling about the raw patriotism of the documentary Navy Heroes of Normandy .

Review: Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill

Another victory, what a surprise
The baseball record books show that Gerald Peter Remy, in 10 major-league seasons, hit a total of seven home runs. On my first visit to his Boylston Street bar and grill, I was ready to declare the restaurant home run number eight.

Balls of fire

Porn stars, witch doctors, elephant farts, and the worst soccer team on the planet take center stage at this summer’s World Cup
For one month every four years, the United States — try as it might — can’t impose its vacuous culture on the rest of the planet. The World Cup arrives and the Americans are, at best, an afterthought.

Pedal promise

The ongoing perils and recent improvements en route to a riding renaissance.
Boston has its fair share of deserving bad reputations: the sports fans whined for some 86 years about a “curse” because the Red Sox couldn’t seal the deal; the drivers are terrible; and, thanks in no small part to those driving skills, the city’s streets were thrice voted by Bicycling Magazine as some of the worst in the country for cyclists.

‘There are no rules’

The 11th-hour change
On April 19, the Globe first reported that arbitrators had awarded the Boston firefighters union a 19-percent raise. By the next morning, both the Globe and the Herald were citing Menino administration figures of a $74 million cost.

Opera singer teaches Sox fans how to scream

You Scream, I Scream Dept.
If Elena Zoubareva had the nerve to admonish boisterous fans outside Fenway Park, she’d offer, calmly, “Don’t scream like that — you’ll strain your vocal cords!”

Molten metal

Expanding definitions at the New England Metal and Hardcore Fest
Let’s cut to the chase — metal is back. And not just as a popular musical style, but as a subculture, freely seeping into the mainstream in a variety of strange ways, from the bullet belts you see on a dance floor to the devil horns being thrown by everybody and your uncle’s band.

Prospect Park

Balls, Pucks & Monster Trucks
Yes! Baseball season is finally here. All is as it should be in the world, if not with the Red Sox, who have had a tough start. But that’s OK.

Friartown, redux

PC players foul out. Plus, helping Johnny Mac, a Supreme shift, and ‘Monbo Time’
Phillipe and Jorge have always had a problem with Providence College basketball’s advertising campaign, which refers to the area as “Friartown” in a delusional suggestion that the squad has support throughout the local community.
