Our Manifesto

We started this site because the rational, clear-thinking Boston sports fan needed a voice. Far too often, our fair city is represented by irrational, obnoxious and immature buffoons, giving the country no choice but to think that, with good reason, we're all like that. The founders of this site simply love sports, love Boston, and don't always feel the need to act like...well...Massholes.

We're not the boors you see on TV, or read in the Boston papers, or hear on sports radio. We secretly feel guilty rooting for guys like Rodney Harrison and Randy Moss, no matter how many wins they deliver us. We remember that the Red Sox existed before 2004, and while the championships are nice, the fact that our favorite baseball team has turned into a traveling circus isn't. We learned our low-post moves from Kevin McHale, and our stickhandling from Ray Bourque. We're wistful for the days when Steve Grogan threw touchdown passes in a neck brace. We follow hockey and college sports, despite the fact that it's hard to find coverage of either up here. We understand that being a sports fan comes with both highs and lows, and that neither is a reason to fly off the handle and embarrass yourself. We're Boston sports fans, and we always have been.

If you're looking for a site full of snap judgments and worn-out stereotypes, this ain't the place for you. However, if you want to read the musings of a group of true, rational Boston sports fans, (with the more-than-occasional dick joke and Ultimate Warrior reference) feel free to browse the archives and comment to your heart's content. Just don't forget to wear your Steve Grogan neck brace while doing so.

Signed,
Your Mass Hysteria Editors

Really?

Blogs are dedicated to cruelty, they are dedicated to journalistic dishonesty, they're dedicated to speed...

Buzz disapproves of this and all blogs.
