Look, I hate the way New England sports fans bash the most recent Boston athlete to leave the local area. It’s often brutal. So take this tidbit from a source to Aqib Talib and his “injury” woes that kept him out of the AFC title loss.
Talib, according to the source, had zero structural damage to ligaments or bones. The doctors found no true malady. He simply took himself out of the game, again according to the source.
GOOD LUCK TODAY
Best of luck to all aspiring high school athletes as spring practices and tryouts open all over the region, most likely indoors.
It’s a trying time for folks, with the individuals all on edge because of tryouts and cuts.
I simply can’t imagine how a kid like Central’s Aaron Hall, who played in the state hoop title game on Saturday night, or Pelham’s Jake Vaiknoras, who played in the state semis and scored his 1,000th point on Friday night with the Pythons, can just flip the switch.
But, as they say, you have to.
ONE FOR MY PEOPLE
Here’s one for us 40-something types.
Word is out that RBI Baseball 14 will arrive at video game stores on April 10. The game is supposed to be a throwback, as in a throwback to the classic 1980s Nintendo RBI Baseball. Now, for my generation, there was no better video game than RBI. And I say that with all due respect to Tecmo Bowl football.
Now if somebody will only re-make “Dig Dug.”
