Boston Basks In A Much Needed Weekend Of Wins

Boston Basks In A Much Needed Weekend Of Wins
Bruins After a miserable two-and-ten start for the Red Sox and a first round playoff series that saw the Bruins go down two-games-to-none to the hated Montreal Canadiens, Boston sports fans needed a weekend exactly like the one they just got. On Saturday night, a thrilling 2-1 victory in double-overtime gave the Bruins a hard-fought 3-games-to-2 edge in their series against the Canadiens; yesterday the Celtics completed a workmanlike sweep of the Knicks in the first round of the NBA playoffs, setting the stage for a probable second round match-up with the much vaunted Miami Heat; and not to be outdone, the Red Sox completed their own four game sweep of the Angels, winning their fifth straight overall and improving to 10-11 on the season. For the moment all seems right in the Boston sports world. Our ‘Monday morning QB’ Bob Lobel stops by to discuss how likely it is to stay that way.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
