Inconvenient Truth: We're Not Good; Lose, 8-4

(Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)In frigid 38 degree weather (Earth to Al Gore: It's April 18th!), the Red Sox went through the motions again, losing their tenth game of the year, 8-4 to the Orioles. Bad defense, mediocre pitching, and the return of the LOB Monster—all contributed to a dreary night at Fenway. Boston had plenty of hits—11—but the O's pounded John Lackey...

Who Invented the Internet? It’s Not What You Think.

We live in an age of information. An age of answers at the tip of our fingers that are at our disposal as quick as we can type them, but even with all these archives, the origins of the platform that made it all possible are still a bit fuzzy. The origins of the internet are like a mythological creature living in a lagoon in Scotland or a Sasquatch living the in the forests of Washington...

Sox Lose One Like It's Two Thousand Twelve

Al Gore Night At Cellular One  (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)Bobby Valentine would have loved this one. On Global Warming Deniers Night in frigid Chicago, the Red Sox booted away a game on a routine ground ball to short in the bottom of the ninth. Bring back memories, folks? Xander Bogaerts made the play but bounced it in front of befuddled first-baseman Mike Carp (who was only...

Syracuse database contains every game ever played

The internet and sports history were made for each other. Unfortunately, Al Gore didn't invent the internets until most sports history had already occurred. So a great challenge (calling all interns) is to digitize what happened prior to the 1990s.  I've found several great sources over the past few years. But today I stumbled across the Syracuse version, which is incredible...

General Wesley Clark owns the NASCAR Green Summit

“I said it (Iraq) was a war we didn’t need to have,” Retired Four Star U.S. Army General Wesley Clark said today in Chicago at the 2013 NASCAR Green Summit. Al Gore was the primary keynote speaker today (more on that here), but the man that preceded him, General Clark, was by far the most captivating speaker of the day. “It’s all connected- war, energy, climate change....

Obama’s Debate flop: Al Gore blames Denver altitude (video)

Al Gore is co-founder and chairman of the board at Current TV. He’s not a political strategist, and given this comment it’s easy to see why. The Denver altitude has often been used as a scapegoat for bad performances. Remember when the #8 seeded Denver Nuggets beat the #1 Seattle Supersonics in the first ever 8 over 1 matchup? Again some people blamed the altitude. Here’s...

COMMENTARY: Mountains out of molehills

IT’S THE INFORMATION AGE and ever since Al Gore invented the internet, we’re all required to make mountains of molehills. Breaking News: Two college kids got in trouble for doing what college kids do. And we as fans are all up in arms about it because when we were young, to steal a phrase from Baz Luhrmann, the prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

It’s Not Too Rough To Feed You and The Main Hatchway’s Still Stable

Al Gore won’t let me have the internet tonite so I’m flying blind, unable to deliver my usual stat-heavy, fact-based, unbiased lead in to yet another “most important regular season game of the year.” It’s kind of liberating, really. Anything I’m about to say can be quibbled with and any grand proclamations can be refuted by me after the fact because I have no means...
