Tin Knockers Invade Southie…

I think it was about 2 years back while trying to put together a dryer vent that found an appreciation for the folks in the sheet metal trade. After picking my hand up off the floor, I realized fairly quick that it was not something…

We have built skyscrapers, world class educational centers and even managed bury an entire portion of the sh*ttiest traffic jam in American history. We have billionaires that were raised in these streets along with some of the biggest names in the arts. Our streets have…

Vote for Marty Walsh tomorrow!

The plan was to go at length for the many reasons why you should be voting for Marty Walsh tomorrow. Instead, I will defer to the incredible piece written by fellow Dot Rat Joyce Linehan called “Why Marty?” that you can see on her blog…

I gotta admit this flick 363: The Road to the Southie 3-on-3 is pretty bad ass. What a production….Danny Picard and his boys did an incredible job making it. I felt like I was watching an ESPN special or something. It brought back good memories…

The husky section is ova theah!!

My how Southie has changed, some changes for the better, some changes…not so much. I think there’s more people from Connecticut and New Jersey living in Southie these days than Massachusetts people. It’s been a windfall for local businesses for sure. But I have to admit I…
