B's get raped...time to jump off the bandwagon

The B's got stomped on tonight at the Garden the Philadelphia Flyers. The 4-0 loss was embarassing as the Bruins showed no killer instinct at all. They got outplayed in every aspect of the game and showed no motivation to win besides scuffles at the end of the game and very good goaltending by Tuukka Rask. The Bruins look to close out this series for the third time Wednesday in game 6 at the Wachovia Center.

In other news, Josh Beckett will miss his next scheduled start Friday due to back spasms. Beckett suffered the spasms while swinging a bat in batting practice with other pitchers in prepartion of interleague play May 21-23. This might be a good thing for Beckett as his mechanics have been off all season resulting in his 7+ ERA. Tito Francona said he did not know if Beckett would miss his next start also but Tim Wakefield was already getting the start on Wednesday to give Beckett an extra day of rest to work on mechanics. Therefore, the rotation will not be messed up at all with the off day on Thursday.

In more important news the Patriots pre-season schedule was announced and is as follows:
Thursday, Aug. 12 -- vs. Saints (7:30 p.m.)
Thursday, Aug. 19 -- at Atlanta (8 p.m.)
Thursday, Aug. 26 -- vs. Rams (7:30 p.m.)
Thursday, Sept. 2 -- at Giants (7 p.m.)

The game against the Falcons will be nationally televised on Fox.

Quest for the SuperBowl begins now...
