Sports Redux: Banner Edition
Yes, the Bruins lost the season opener last night. But, hey, they put the banner up! How cool is that? Still a great night. And, of course, it's always a good night if Bobby Orr shows up. Enjoy the gratuitous banner shots.

The Red Sox brass appeared on WEEI's "Dennis and Callahan Show" today. John Henry wouldn't discuss the speculated on departure of Theo Epstein, calling it "private." Henry did say "Theo is not going to be the general manager forever."
Henry said the team was out of shape and that contributed to the September collapse. He said:
"Our people within the Red Sox have learned a lot and I think that there's much more we can do but to me the most important thing is that this is the third time in six years and certainly the second straight year in which a great team just couldn’t make it though 162 games physically. And it wasn’t just one or two players, we were really banged up. We were really struggling to put healthy players on the field. Every team has to be able to make it through 162 games. Two years in a row we didn’t do it."
