Keeping up with the 617: The Bo Horvat dilemma

With the “dog days” of the NHL season in full swing, the Boston Bruins are continuing their incredible start. After their win over the New York Islanders on Wednesday, they became the second fastest team in NHL history to reach 35 wins — an absurd statistic. While their great play continues to puzzle hockey pundits, […]

Keeping up with the 617: Spend, spend, spend

In an offseason that began with a frustrated fanbase due to a lack of spending from ownership, Chaim Bloom and the Red Sox have officially begun their addition phase. With the poor performance of the team in the 2022 season, fans are pleading to this ownership to spend the exorbitant amounts of money from John […]

Keeping Up with the 617: Reality Check

In a year where the NFL is as unpredictable as the New England weather forecast, the New England Patriots continue to prove to this fanbase how a mediocre offense can’t win the “big games.” Sure, the Patriots currently occupy the final playoff spot heading into Week 11, which should shock many NFL pundits; they currently […]

Keeping up with the 617: A pleasant surprise

A few weeks ago I wrote about how I believed the Bruins were actively ignoring the inevitable rebuild facing the franchise. They have since proved me wrong. Not only are these Bruins playing playoff-level hockey through six games, they lead the league in points. Sure, some of their wins have been against weaker competition, but […]

Keeping Up With the 617: Champions

We’ve reached the point of the NBA season where overreactions are more common than pessimism amongst fanbases; some are drooling over a newly-drafted rookie, and others are looking ahead towards a Larry O’Brien trophy presentation in June. In the Celtics’ case, the Garden Faithful are anticipating another NBA Finals appearance after a tumultuous offseason. And […]

Keeping up with the 617: Confidence

After a month of middling performances and untimely injuries, the New England Patriots enter Week 6 with a rookie quarterback at the helm and a young defense that is impressing the league. Sound familiar? Although Bailey Zappe is outperforming expectations and limiting his mistakes, let’s pump the brakes on the comparisons to 2001; Tom Brady […]

Keeping up with the 617: High school reunion

As the crisp autumn air begins to appear across New England, Bruins fans begin to possess the most helpless feeling in all of sports: hope. With each coming year, the optimism within the TD Garden shrinks as this aging Bruins core, combined with its depleted prospect pipeline, begins to show signs of wear. To make […]

Keeping up with the 617: A playoff team

As New England Patriots fans, we truly do not recognize the magnitude of greatness that this franchise has sustained over the past two decades. Since 2000, the team has been to nine Super Bowls and has won six Lombardi Trophies; they’ve missed the playoffs only four times in that span and have produced some of […]

Keeping up with the 617: Homecoming

Minutes before the MLB owners and MLPA issued a lockout of the 2021 offseason over the expired Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Red Sox orchestrated a trade that received a questionable response from the fan base. Hunter Renfroe, one of the bigger offensive contributors for the team in 2021, is now a Milwaukee Brewer; in compensation, […]

Keeping up with the 617: Purgatory

At a certain point in a team’s successful run, the discussion of the “championship window closing” becomes a hotbed topic; for the Boston Bruins, it’s all they’ve been hearing since 2019. Although they’ve been to two Stanley Cup finals since their win in 2011, the Bruins continue to fall short of expectations in the most […]
