Carson Wentz threw three touchdown passes for the Philadelphia Eagles in a 34-13 drubbing of their inter-divisional rivals the NY Giants in front of a disgruntled crowd in East Rutherford, New Jersey last night.

Easiest way to spot a Red Sox fan this morning? They're the ones without any fingernails.

The 272-mile Long Trail follows Green Mountain ridgelines from one end of Vermont to another. So what’s it like to hike the whole thing?

Wanna get away? Backcountry enthusiasts will soon have more trailside accommodations in Vermont to choose from. One new heated cabin just opened for occupancy this week, while another will become available in December and construction of a third is set to begin next spring. 

It wasn't the first time Major League Baseball needed to add an extra contest to its 162-game schedule to decide which team would be a division champ. But yesterday marked the first time two such games were necessary on the same day.

The first game of the Red Sox double header against the Baltimore Orioles yesterday was all about capping off personal achievements for players who, as a team, have made history by producing the most regular season wins in franchise history.

In Major League Baseball the NY Yankees are a step closer to wrapping up home field advantage for the one game wild card playoff game next week, following their 9-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays last night.

It was the year the Titanic made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The year Fenway Park made its debut. And the year the Boston Red Sox won their second World Series.

At Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, Sinatra blared over the loudspeakers and chants of "MVP!" rained down from the stands, but the celebrants on the field were not wearing pinstripes.

The magic number for the Boston Red Sox to clinch their third straight division title is down to two, and now the focus shifts to the health of two of their star players.

The last time the Boston Red Sox won 100 games in a season was 1946, the year Ted Williams played in his only World Series. And since Major League Baseball expanded to playing a 162-game schedule in 1961, no Red Sox team had ever reached that plateau. Until now.

Mitch Moreland came through as a pinch hitter at Fenway Park last night, delivering a walk-off single in the bottom of the 9th for a 6-5 win over the Houston Astros, a win that averts a three-game Houston sweep.

The NFL kicked off its new season last night with the defending superbowl champion Philadelphia Eagles taking on their avian-themed counterparts, the Atlanta Falcons, and if you like sloppy, flag-filled football, this was your kind of game.

The Boston Red Sox completed their biggest comeback of the season yesterday, overcoming a 7-1 deficit to beat the Atlanta Braves on a home run by a former all-star, who until yesterday's game, was content to wait for his Red Sox debut while toiling in the minors.

A comeback for the Boston Red Sox. A collapse for the NY Yankees.

I blame the nickname unis.

There are some fans of the Boston Red Sox who will never fully embrace pitcher David Price unless and until he excels in the playoffs, no matter how well he's pitched for Boston this season, and especially since the all-star break.

The Boston Red Sox have a potential gold glove center fielder in Jackie Bradley Jr., but the Cleveland Indians have a guy named Greg Allen in that same position and he showed last night why that award is still, pardon the pun, up for grabs.

Boston Red Sox fans didn't fret much when the team traded rookie pitcher Jalen Beeks to the Tampa Bay Rays for Nathan Eovaldi.

The Tampa Bay Rays sidearm-delivering lefty Adam Kolarek had never pitched in the big leagues, and wasn't meant to pitch the ninth inning in the Bronx against the NY Yankees yesterday, trying to preserve a 3-1 lead with the bases loaded and nobody out.
