For the mere chance of watching the Red Sox make history at home, just getting in the building on Wednesday night is going to cost someone plenty. After winning the 2004 World Series in St. Louis and the 2007 Fall Classic in Denver, the Sox could celebrate a title in front of a packed Fenway, and that has Boston fans breaking the bank for a chance to see the game in person. As of 2 p.m. on Tuesday, the average price for a Game 6 ticket is $2,186, according to TiqIq.com, making Wednesday night's contest one of the most expensive sporting events in Boston's history. The cheapest seat in the house for Game 6, a right field standing-room ticket, costs $849 on Stubhub.com. The most expensive ticket listed on Stubhub is a field box seat listed at an incredible $42,079. (WEEI.com) Comment
Three years ago, LeBron James and Erik Spoelstra were essentially strangers when they entered into what began as a sometime uneasy partnership. So much of Miami's future is uncertain, but James has to understand the best reason for him to stay the course is the fact that Spoelstra isn't joining him on the market. On the eve of training camp, Spoelstra signed a four-year contract extension. The message was unmistakable: If James wants the stability that comes with continuity and trust, with elite ownership, executives and a coach, there's no reason for him to leave Miami. "They're more intertwined than they've ever been," says a league source closely connected to James and Spoelstra. "LeBron knows he plays for one of the elite coaches in the game, and that maybe wasn't the case when he got there." (Yahoo! Sports) Comment
At various points along the course of his Giants tenure, Tom Coughlin's job status has been dissected and questioned, taken on and off the hot seat, particularly over the past few seasons. [Coughlin] will be back as Giants head coach next season if he so desires, and no one should be surprised if he coaches them until he's 70. How do I know this? I listened to general manager Jerry Reese on Tuesday. Reese gave his State of the Giants bye-week address and made it sound as if the rest of the organization might be 2-6, not Coughlin. And it wouldn't matter if Coughlin is 67 or 37. ... [Reese] said he believes in Coughlin at a time when the Giants have been granted new life by the sorry state of the NFC East, and gave strong indications ownership does as well. As it should.
