We signed Jose Mijares to a minor league deal with an invitation to attend Spring Training. We also signed Grady Sizemore to a one-year deal plus a considerable amount of incentives. Things are shaping up.
The B’s lost to the Blackhawks, 2-3, in a shootout, and beat the Kings, 3-2, and Flyers, 6-1. As far as the Pats are concerned, we’re done. The season is officially over. We will not be advancing to the Super Bowl. The Broncos, however, are another matter, since they beat us, 26-16. We couldn’t run the ball, and the defense was porous. It just felt like something was off. I mean, granted, we were just really lucky this year; I guess the whole idea of a team fighting an uphill battle at every turn was a common theme in Boston. Anyway, we were fortunate to have come this far, and it’s a real testament to the team to have accomplished that. We’ve won a lot of critical games this year, many of them close ones. And then it just ended. So we’re out of the Super Bowl. It’s awful, and it hurts. But we can still be proud.
