I like to think that things have improved a lot over the past 25 years. That said, even if 1 in 200 is a complete knucklehead...that's still a lot of people.
I haven't spent any amount of time there in 12-13 years, and i'd imagine a lot has changed since then, but when I was spending time there, Boston was such a weird dynamic. A tourist area that they did everything to hide the real Boston from, small pockets of uber rich people, and an overwhelming majority of very blue collar people with a very low levels of education or skills who has an extreme dislike for others that weren't part of their social group. Always seemed to be a powder keg to me. Amazing place to visit, but as soon as you left the tourist areas, and quickly became you were not welcome unless you were a longtime local. Maine also gave me a similar vibe.

Went to a couple D-Backs games while in Arizona this week, nice to see them sweep the Mets. Fun team to watch with a great chance to win the NL West if they can stay healthy.

I always liked Thames and rooted for him on the Jays and Ms, but can I ever see where those PED allocations are coming from now. Haven't really followed him in the Brewers this year, but his body got massive. He was always in shape, but his mass is so much bigger now.
