Slap Shots: Red Sox, Revolution, Breakers

By Zach Baru

International exhibition or not, it's nice to see a Revolution game at Gillette Stadium with over 50,000 fans.

Pack up, Cannons, and move back to Nickerson Field already.

Waiting for the day when arena football is played in the TD Garden.

It's time to have the commuter rail stop at Gillette for Revs games, getting more fans in the seats.

Hopefully the upcoming Deutsche Bank Championship can learn from the failures of last month's Travelers Championship in Connecticut.

NESN's Red Sox coverage has reached the point where on-screen advertisements intrude on the enjoyment of the game.

Ripple effect: Providence Bruins offering a "Champions 3 Pack".

Too bad the Breakers aren't marketing themselves to take advantage of the U.S. Women's World Cup success.

Patriot Place has become the model for making professional sports a "destination", and not an "attraction".

Do the Revolution need a new stadium, or just a new brand identity?

In tribute to Garry Brown.
