Don’t worry; he’ll be back with his exciting posts next week. The Wayland boys’ ice hockey team faced two schools this last week. After a...

First, as the winter season is reaching the home stretch, be on the lookout for a recap being published on WSPN later this week. You’ll be able to read all about how your favo...

[/caption]Apparently Major League Baseball has a steroid problem. You’ll find few people who will deny that statement. But is there really an issue? Let’s take a look. You want to know how many steroid tests came back positive in the MLB this past season? Zero. That’s right, zero. Obviously, there are plenty of results that go unnoticed because there are ways to cheat yours...

Very few of you have probably heard the name Sam Berns. Very few of you could also have made the same difference in this world that Sam did. Sam Berns was diagnosed with progeria when he was only 22 months old. Progeria is described as the “Benjamin Button disease.” It is a very rare disease that makes one age rapidly,...

[/caption]Readers, as we enter 2014, and as I enter my last few months writing this blog, it has become harder and harder for me to think of topics to write about without being boring. One thing I have never written about is why I love sports. I believe that this is a topic that can be studied in depth. Why does anyone like sports? For me, it starts...

[/caption]Hey everybody, sorry for the delay between blogs. Here is a quick update on what happened between posts. -The powderpuff game got pretty nasty (shout-out to my girl Maddie Kiefer).

What a huge accomplishment. Nice job Sarah! Now, we are officially closing in on the final week of fall sports. All that is left are the Thanksgiving day and powderpuff gam...

What do you want first? The good news or bad news? I’ll start with the bad news. Every single team in the playoffs lost this past week. In one big swoop, fall season is now over, except for football with the stupid new playoff format. Football will continue to play consolation games until the Thanksgiving matchup against Weston. Boys soccer had t...

[/caption]Wayland’s teams have had quite a bit of success this fall. Football, girls' volleyball, boys' soccer, and field hockey all made tournament! Girls' volleyball hasn’t been successful over the past few years and was not projected to have such a great season. Nice job girls! You really earned this one. Football is another team that was not expected to play ext...

[/caption]October 13, 2013. Always remember, never forget. What a day this was in Boston sports. I felt like I was nine years old back in 2004. Tom Brady leading the Patriots to an improbable fourth quarter comeback on a last-second drive made me feel like Tom Brady was 25 again; he was Tom Terrific. The under-the-radar Patriots are now 5-1. This is a team with b...

[/caption]This week I want to start with a question for my readers: Should I grow a playoff beard with the Red Sox? Anyway, this was a slow week for Warrior sports. There were lots of tough losses (except for boys' soccer; they have had a fantastic season so far). Since I don’t want to dwell on the past, ...
