Boston: Singin’ dollar dollar bill y’all

Football

The GIST: Things are a bit topsy-turvy here in Beantown. The Red Sox added a *gasps* Yankees fan to their ownership group, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is spending big in free agency and the C’s lost on St. Patrick’s Day. Where was Lucky when we needed him?

🏈Patriots: If you ever feel guilty after an online shopping splurge, just remember the time Bill Belichick spent over $200 million (!!!) in one day. The Pats have made a flurry of free agency moves, including signing star tight ends Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith. Taking Dolla Dolla Bill to a whole new level.

  • And Belichick kept things rolling yesterday, bringing back linebacker Kyle Van Noy. Prior to spending last year with the Miami Dolphins, Van Noy played four seasons with the Pats and won two Super Bowls. HYFR.

🏒College hockey: We might not have any schools in this year’s March Madness, but the Hub sure knows how to hockey. The No. 1 Northeastern Huskies women easily won their quarterfinal matchup on Monday to make their first Frozen Four in school history. They’ll face No. 6 Minnesota Duluth today at 2 p.m. ET. Herstory in the making.

  • And while the No. 1 B.C. men lost yesterday’s Hockey East semis in a double overtime heartbreaker, the Eagles should still hear their name called at Sunday’s national championship selection show. Fly, Eagles, Fly. 

❤️RIP: Boston Marathon icon and Holland, Massachusetts-native Dick Hoyt passed away yesterday at age 80. Hoyt finished 32 Boston Marathons while pushing his son Rick, who has cerebral palsy. A true inspiration.
