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.

Kelly's zeroes

Oregon Football makes the leap and pays the price; plus, taser fun on the Bayou
Like Bob Beamon's long-jump record or Joe DiMaggio's hitting streak, it was once thought that no organized sports team would ever approach the string of arrests racked up by the infamous Portland Jail Blazers club of the early 2000s.

Let’s recap

Balls, Pucks, and Monster Trucks
With the decade drawing to a close, it's fitting to reconsider the moments and developments of the last 10 years that forever changed sports in Portland and New England.

Goal rush!

How long can Boston's frenetic sports-media explosion last?
Get two journalists in a room these days, and before the conversation is five minutes old they'll probably be kvetching about the grim state of the news business. Unless, that is, they happen to be sports journalists, in which case the conversation will likely focus on how absurdly bright the future looks. Especially here in Boston.

A Tale of Two Towns

Renowned for its roguish history, Charlestown is finally getting Hollywood's attention
Charlestown was baptized in bloodshed. Yet this unique, fertile turf has been generally overlooked by Hollywood, which has preferred instead its old rival South Boston, the primary backdrop for Oscar winners Good Will Hunting and The Departed .

See how they ran: No loneliness for these long-distance athletes
There were 7800 official entries and between 2000 and 3000 others along for the ride. By our crude calculations, the leaders were a mile and a half into the course by the time the last runner crossed the starting line.

25. DUSTIN PEDROIA AND KEVIN YOUKILIS

INFIELD NOT-SO-FLY RULE
We love us some Sox — we can see the majestic green of Fenway’s stadium walls from all our Phoenix restrooms, and it just gets our hearts afluttering. That is, until we contemplate the mugs of the one-two combo of Youkilis and Pedroia. Don’t misunderstand us — they’re good guys (though Youk seems to have an eensy-weensy anger-management issue) — but their visages are perhaps better suited to a sport like football, where one’s entire face is sheathed in a helmet.
