Happy Thursday! Bruins play a warm-up tonight. Celtics play for real tomorrow night. What Red Sox troubles? I mean...what ball?

BROADCAST HIGHLIGHT

Bruins vs Columbus Blue Jackets - 7 p.m., NESN

The warm-up before the playoff restart. Against the team that knocked the Lightning out of last year's playoffs. We want the Cup! LET'S GO!!!

STIDHAM ON THE MOVE

According to a story posted to the IG of his wife, Kennedy, Jarrett Stidham and family are moving from Providence, RI to...Foxborough, MA. Very interesting.

Jarrett Stidham will be moving from his beautiful Providence Rhode Island Loft into a House in Foxboro by the end of August which he will be renting. Looks like the QB1 is looking to get closer to the facility long term --

Could this be because the Stidhams believe Jarrett is a part of the team's long-term plans? Does he just want to shorten his commute this season? Is Kennedy tired of renting and wants a house of their own to decorate and work her IG influencer magic? Time will tell...but usually people don't plunk down good dollars on a home if they think their future in that area is short. Time will tell, but a potentially interesting move indeed. Hey, at least he didn't buy one in Greenwich, CT, right?

BIG FANTASY OPT-OUT

Chiefs running back Damien Williams, arguably an MVP candidate from the Chiefs Super Bowl 54 win, becomes the second member of the World Champs to opt-out, following Guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. The Chiefs remain Super Bowl 55 favorites thanks to Patrick Mahomes, a load of returning starters, offensive talent to spare and depth at the RB position, where they selected RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire out of LSU. A pick that seems all the more important now for a team with repeat title hopes. Williams emerged from the bench to replace Kareem Hunt in 2018, and became the team's best back in 2019. A loss for sure. One thing's for sure...this clarifies from a fantasy perspective who the back to select in KC is. And truth be told you could probably rush for 780 yards and 7 TDs in that offense.

END OF AN ERA IN INDY

Pour a Sun King for Adam Vinatieri, inarguably the only player in NFL history who's the greatest kicker for two franchises, and has had two Hall of Fame worthy careers. He'll always have a special place in our sports hearts, for many obvious, clutch reasons. Might be the end of the line for him, but wow...what a run.

Oh, and because it's a Throwback Thursday and you know you want some of those first Super Bowl Foxboro Feels again...

#THROWBACK THURSDAY

This deserves to be in consideration for most surreal Boston sports photo of all-time. Batman had a brutal time trying to corral all these supervillains in Gotham. But Red had no problem getting them to come together on good behavior.

BECAUSE WE NEED THIS

Your regular reminder that just a little can go a long way. 

BEST OF BOSTON

And finally...we're sharing this because you'll need to know where to go for a bite, or to get the right kind of takeout, beer, ice cream, treats, supplies and more for all the sports you're going to watch over the next three months or more.
