Thrillist.com coming to Boston

Even in a first-rate burg like Boston, the boldest men can still fall into a rut: drinking in the same Boylston Street bars, drinking in the same Boylston Street bars…

Celts

I’m really pulling for the Celtics to win but they can’t get it done on the road. KG, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen are so unselfish that there’s really no one stepping up when they need it, they’re all just being unselvish…together. We need some leadership right now!

I was listening to my car radio during my lunch break today, and the DJ informed his audience that in some national automobile something-or-other survey, Boston didn’t even rank in the top five for rudest drivers. Atlanta is actually number one. The DJ was quite disappointed - “C’mon, people! This is something that we used to pride ourselves on. We’re called Massholes for a reason. Use your turn signal only to confuse or agitate.”

Boston did score second for worst road rage (behind Miami).
