This Red Sox update caught my eye for completely non-baseball-related reasons:
With nearly all of his free agent comings and goings completed by Christmas, Epstein actually found time to take a few days off around New Year's, play some guitar with rockers Buffalo Tom and devote his Sundays to following his beloved New England Patriots.
What?! Buffalo Tom is still kicking around?! Cool!
B Tom was one of my favorite Boston bands during my college years. One of my best concert experiences was seeing them at the Paradise — My buddy and I ended up sitting on the stage, Indian-style, for the whole show. Bill Janovitz could have spit on us, but luckily he's too nice a guy to do that. ;)
