Coaches discuss strategies to contain Tolman, Woonsocket

November 29, 2010

Gearing up for Tuesday’s push to the Super Bowl …

Tweaking is the preferred action of coaches, applying a new wrinkle or two depending on the next opponent. Generally what has worked up until this point is going to continue – unless something unforeseen happens.

EARLY-BIRD SPECIAL - Shoppers get up in wee hours for Black Friday

November 27, 2010

LINCOLN – Don't believe everything you read.
That was no flat-screen TV in the box, like the label said. That was Alex Camperone's trophy.
It was his prize for spending most of a drizzly and raw, post-Thanksgiving night waiting outside the Target store at Lincoln Mall.
Those other folks in a line of customers that snaked halfway around the mall, waiting, along with Camperone, for the store to open – they were Camperone's rivals in a hungry quest for doorbuster bargains.

Thanksgiving Day games offer interesting conundrum

November 27, 2010

At this time of the year, many college and high school football teams compete against traditional Thanksgiving opponents. We call them rivalry games, contests that are played for “bragging rights” and even, in rare cases, for league championships.
The advent of playoffs has diminished these games over the years. In college ball, radical reformers want to take it one step farther, creating a national championship for Division I teams that would completely dilute the meaning of bowl games while also extending the season deep into January or even into the first weekend of February.

November 26, 2010
