“This story only ever had one ending. It’s a tale of redemption, resilience, and yes, relentlessness. It’s the story of Boston, and it is awesome.” That was my Facebook status message right after the Boston Red Sox won the 2013 World Series last night, and I’m not sure how much I can add to that. The 2004 team will always hold a unique place in my heart because they changed the fundamental definition of what it means to be a Red Sox fan. Namely that we can now handle a loss without knowing in our bones that it’s proof that... Read more →

Hi everyone, Good evening! We're going to shake things up a bit and go with an evening version of the news today. I know, we're crazy, right? BDH and Little Buddha need something to focus on until the start of Game 6 of the World Series, so here we are. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, or Sam Adams if you prefer, and let's clear out some Wednesday night Clutter! Clutterheads, you know my bias, but honestly, Hugh Laurie's concert on Tuesday night at the Wilbur Theater was simply awesome. Laurie and company delivered the musical goods for more...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It's only Tuesday, and I'm already dragging. You know I love the Red Sox, but all of these late games are killing me. It's a combination of not enough hours of sleep, plus the games leave me a big ball of stress, so it's not restful sleep either. I was only slightly worried about driving across Massachusetts for work yesterday morning. Fortunately, my coffee kept me awake enough to get to Berkshire County and back without incident. Speaking of which, help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter.... Read more →

Monday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How was your weekend? Mine felt surprisingly productive. BDH, Little Buddha and I got a number of errands done, including a couple of things we've put off for a while, so that was good. It will be nice if I can keep up that same level of productivity this week. However, first things first. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's kick off the week with some Clutter. This may be a transition year for Tom Brady and company, but the New England Patriots still know how to fight for a full 60 minutes... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Saturday to you all! I guess fall has finally arrived, huh? The Clutter Tree's leaves are both yellow and rapidly disappearing, and I've started pulling down the storm windows. I better find BDH and Little Buddha's thermal pj's soon. However, we've got some catching up to do first, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy says that tonight is the biggest start of his career, and I won't argue with that. With growing concern over the status of Clay... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! What a crazy little stretch it's been since the last time we hung out. I was minding my own business Wednesday morning, when my friend texted me to ask if I wanted to go to Game 1 of the 2013 World Series. I'm pretty sure he already knew the answer to that, but it was nice of him to ask. I had to sell off a share of the massive Clutter stock portfolio in order to pay for the ticket, but Clutterheads, I say this in all seriousness, that was one of the best nights of... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! The World Series is just a few hours away! I don't begin to know how I'm going to stay focused until then, but I'll give it my best shot. I guess the key is to find productive distractions, like say, work! Or...you could make yourself comfortable, help yourself to a nice medium DD, and we could clear out some Clutter for a while. Sound like a plan? Yeah, let's do that. Here we go... The Boston Globe is clearly freaked out by the number of endorsements that State Representative Marty Walsh is getting in his campaign...

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Tuesday to you all. I can't tell a lie, it's hard to focus on "staying in the moment," when I really want it to be Wednesday so the World Series will start. BDH and Little Buddha are trying to help me stay focused, but they're already wearing their Boston Red Sox American League Champions t-shirts (only $35 each), so I'm not sure how well this is going to work. However, there's really only one way to find out, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. In... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! We hope you had a good weekend. I had a nice time with Dad Clutter on Saturday. We ended up not eating at the Hilltop Steakhouse for his belated birthday celebration. Nostalgia only goes so far, and by that I mean, it doesn't go far enough to justify a four hour wait. It's always nice to spend some quality time on Route 1, though. The Red Sox came after that, but now I'm getting ahead of myself. Make yourself comfortable, help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. The 2004... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? It looks like it's going to be a gorgeous day. Dad Clutter is coming down for a belated birthday celebration this afternoon, and we're going to the Hilltop Steakhouse to celebrate. He liked it when he was a kid, and since they're closing for good tomorrow, we figured we'd get in one last meal. BDH and Little Buddha want me to bring them back either one of the big cows or that huge cactus in front of the restaurant. I tried to explain that probably won't happen, but I'm not sure they understand.... Read more →
