  • Why Bruins fans will never forget the pain of losing to the Philadelphia Flyers :: Brianna works with patients of traumatic brain injuries, and they call it perseverating. You can change the topic a 100 times, but they’ll still focus on their cat Simon, regardless of your assurances that the thing got run over by an 18-wheeler 20 years ago. And Barry was perseverating.

He said it would be a celebration like no other. He isn’t wrong about that.  So now, with the times getting tough, with other cities batting their eyes, he’s just going to walk away?  This decision will say a lot about James. And if he’s off to Chicago or New York it will disappoint many who have known him the longest, in a way that goes beyond the selfishness of fandom. :: ESPN has him leaving for Chicago which makes sense as he has this odd Michael Jordan obsession.
