Too much glassware flying around Boston bars; board to look at possible glass crackdown

Feb 21 11:30am Universal Hub - All Boston, all the time
The Boston Licensing Board will consider forcing bars to give up glassware and drinks in glass bottles if their patrons get injured in attacks with them. It's seems like we're seeing a lot of that now, board Chairwoman Christine Pulgini said following two hearings today, one involving a patron at Minibar who appeared to attack another with a glass, another involving a patron at a Langham Hotel bar who now faces criminal charges for allegedly smacking another patron in the back of the head with a beer bottle. Pulgini noted another incident at the Boston Beer Garden in South Boston in December, in which a man suffered possibly permanent brain injuries after being punched in the head by a man clenching a glass salt shaker. In 2010, a man died when somebody threw a glass beer mug in a fight at a Fenway bar, which shattered and sent a large shard into the man's neck. Pulgini said the board...

Boston Celtics Rumors: Assets On Hand That Could Be Traded

Feb 21 8:00am
Boston Celtics Rumors: Assets On Hand That Could Be Traded This NBA Trade Deadline A lot of talk has swirled around the Boston Celtics and potential trades they could potentially pull off ahead of the NBA’s trade deadline. Big names have been thrown around like a Jimmy Butler, issue is many fans are unaware what the Celtics actually have to offer for a player of that caliber. After the Sacramento Kings traded Demarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans on 40 cents on the dollar it could either drive up the value of the Celtics assets or drive it down because the Kings took a deal well below what they should have gotten for a Cousins type of player. With Boogie off the market and the C’s not really looking at him due to his attitude issues it is now time to determine if it is worth making a trade for a game changer like a Butler or target a smaller piece like Phoneix Suns for...

The latest rumor is an old rumor being given a new live though with Marc Stein of ESPN now pumping air into the Jahlil Okafor rumor. “Okafor is kind of still there,” Marc Stein told ESPN Radio. “He’s been so out there that you tend to think Philadelphia will find something in the next three days where they move him. I’ve heard that Boston has still given that some consideration. Chicago’s another team that’s been said to have shown some Okafor interest.” Okafor makes little sense for the Celtics , the Celtics can’t rebound, but neither can Okafor. He’s averaging 4.8 rebounds per game, and his 7.5 rebounds per 36 minutes puts him right in line with Celtics Avery Bradley (7.1)...

One might even call this end-of-life or hospice care. The idea of such a facility takes away a person’s autonomy and essentially forces a social agenda that supports the normalization of IV drug use over active care and treatment.

Boston Bruins Break The Bye Week Curse And Beat The San Jose Sharks In Overtime

Feb 20 10:00am
The Boston Bruins Beat The San Jose Sharks in overtime The Boston Bruins start off their west coast road trip with a big win, and two big points. The Bruins have been seeming to play like a different team under Bruce Cassidy. Most of the game was very boring, there was not much back and forth like there has been the past couple of games. This may be due to the new described Bye week curse, the 7 teams that had their by week have not one their first game back from the bye. The Bruins decided to change that and show that the Bye did not get rid of all of their momentum. The Bye week is still the dumbest thing ever. The Bruins did score first, at 11:05 Ryan Spooner scored on a rebound from Jimmy Hayes, yes Jimmy Hayes got a point. This was Hayes’ 100th point, but it took him 7 seasons. That was all the scoring in the first. Patrick Marleau scored the tying goal at 17:37 of the second.
