In a busy sports week, which local team has your eye?
Welcome to one of the busiest weeks in sports. The Bruins are in a tough fight against the Washington Capitals in the first round of the playoffs. They'll be playing a game 7 on Wednesday night. The Celtics are looking to close out the NBA regular season in strong form. They'll be playing the Miami Heat on Tuesday and the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Patriots are preparing for the NFL draft, one of the biggest events on the football calendar. That three-day marathon starts on Thursday night. Oh yeah, and there's a team called the Red Sox playing its regular season. Unfortunately, given our limited number of eyes, humans are only capable of watching so much at once. So, which of Boston's sports teams has your eye this week?

Before a Nation was born, there was 1967.
My wife is a Yankees fan, and says she feels like a stranger here in Red Sox Nation. A month or so ago, we went to Long Island. The weather was nice. The food was great. “You know what I like best?" I figured she was going to say being back to the place where she grew up, among the familiar sights. “Not really,” I answered. “Well, we’re not in Red Sox Nation anymore,” she said. “I’m not seeing the license plates, the shirts, the hats and all the talk about the Red Sox.” I’m a Red Sox fan and have been so since 1965.
