It all depends on compensation.
Patriots finish off the deal, of Matt Cassel (with Mike Vrabel) to the Chiefs, according to NFL reports.

Here is a story that ran in today’s Eagle-Tribune about Stephon Marbury possibly joining the Celtics.
I spoke with ex-Boston College star Billy Curley, now the coach at Thayer Academy, who played with Marbury on the Minnesota T-Wolves.

The only way I would agree with the naysayers would be if they could prove he would ruin what the Celtics have going.
With Marbury expected to join the team tomorrow and probably play on [...]
First this happened.
Then this happened.

The Mikki Moore era is about to begin. Alert your local reptile dealer!
This from John Eligon’s great little New York Times feature from 2006.
Growing up in Gaffney, S.C., Moore, a self-professed country boy, used to find snakes in his grandmother’s backyard. When he returned home for the summer while at the University of Nebraska, his [...]
Saturday I got the chance to go to an opening party for the new House of Blues in Boston, just across the street from Fenway Park.
The Blues Brothers, aka Jim Belushi and John Aykroyd, were there. The performance was amazing, especially their rendition of the Boston classic “Dirty Water.”
They were joined on stage by James [...]

That incredulous looking point guard is headed to the Kings for a second-round pick.

First the above happened. Then Boston College beat Duke. I was lucky enough to be in attendance at Conte Forum Sunday.
While I understand the blather about Boston being a PRO SPORTS TOWN, the place was rocking. Whether that atmosphere can be recreated is unclear, but the Eagles join fellow ACC school Wake Forest as the [...]
