I started The Hook Boston back in 2015, been talking Boston sports since 2012.

Of course, looking at all the matchups for the Patriots, I anticipated all wins. But that’s not how the world works. That’s why you play the game. When in Rome. (I’m done).
Football is a crazy game, especially when you’re playing the Bills and the city is partying like it’s the Super Bowl. I’m not even trolling here, even though it is in my MO to do that to the Bills. They have a really good team. And what I mean by a really good team, I mean a really good defense and an offense that looks like they discovered football yesterday.
