Rick Kelleher is a big, white-haired, crisply presented man who looks very much the way you’d expect a Boston Irish power broker to look. If you found yourself sitting next to him on a plane, you might notice how he kept the conversation flowing naturally and emphasized his points with the physicality of a great salesman, dramatically raising his eyebrows and cocking his head. On this morning, Kelleher is seated at a back table in the lobby restaurant of the elegant Boston Harbor Hotel, where the server knows exactly how he likes his house-smoked salmon. He carries himself as if he owns the place, and, in a way, he does.

Welcome to Season 7, Episode 17 of the Unconventional Preview, a serious-yet-lighthearted, nostalgia-tinted look at the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs . . . For all of the relative ups and downs during this Patriots season, they’re pretty much where we expected them to be back in September — resting up during wild-card weekend, with a first-round bye and at least some hope (mostly based on the defense and Tom Brady’s most recent performance) that perhaps they are about to peak at the right time. Sure, it would be better to own the No. 1 seed since they’re 8-0 at home, but that’s something only a dynasty laments. The journey might have been tougher than expected, but no complaints about the result. It’s probably underestimated how much of an advantage it is to have a first-round bye. The Patriots snagged one, so they are in the good place right now, waiting like the rest of us to discover their opponent for next week. Wild-card weekend is one of … [Read more...] about 3 players to watch, and other thoughts on NFL wild-card weekend
By David Ginsburg Associated Press Published 1:46 AM EST Jan 3, 2019 College Park, Md. — Nebraska’s final attempt to score had gone awry, and as the buzzer sounded, Maryland’s players rushed to the middle of the court to celebrate the team’s most significant victory of the season. “We beat a really good team. We need that for a confidence builder,” coach Mark Turgeon said after the Terrapins used a late push to get past No. 24 Nebraska 74-72 on Wednesday night. Bruno Fernando had 18 points and 17 rebounds, Anthony Cowan Jr. scored 19 points and freshman Jalen Smith accounted for Maryland’s final seven points to finish with 15, including a tiebreaking layup with 3.8 seconds left. The Terrapins (11-3, 2-1 Big Ten) had previously lost to Virginia, at Purdue and at home against Seton Hall. Turgeon rarely misses a chance to point out that this is “fifth-youngest team in the country,” but he also knows that isn’t an excuse … [Read more...] about Maryland defeats No. 24 Nebraska in Big Ten play
Helene St. James Detroit Free Press Published 6:52 PM EST Dec 22, 2018 Thomas Vanek is frustrated, so much so it is affecting his sleep. He has built his NHL career on being a prolific and consistent scorer, but this season his plight mirrors that of the Red Wings: they are not scoring enough to be consistent winners. They head into their last game before the Christmas break, Sunday at Toronto, lamenting their 2-1 loss to the Panthers. The Wings are having trouble masking just how many key players are injured, and have just three victories in their last 11 games. The lower they finish in the standings, the better their draft lottery odds, but that’s not what the players care about. “It’s another frustrating loss,” Vanek said after the matinee at Little Caesars Arena. “We need to score, I need to score more. It takes us 10, 12 scoring chances to get something. We had two power plays in the third and got some good looks, but good looks … [Read more...] about How lack of goals affect Detroit Red Wings’ Thomas Vanek
