This is my favorite time of the year. Why? The NFL draft is over and the excitement of the rookies, free agents, new season, and fantasy league is buzzing. (Don’t forget the NFL Police Blotter.) The Celtics would normally still be in the playoffs and the Fenway area smells like baseball again. However, the best part is the NHL playoffs!
It’s great when the Bruins are in the playoffs, but even when they aren’t playing, I find myself glued to a TV. I’m rearranging my social life to fit the B’s schedule. Cheering for Ottawa to crush the professional Montreal Diving Team, and...

This week’s Socialete has one of the cooler jobs and we were lucky enough to take a tour when we did our interview. We won’t name names, but the company makes robots for household and military uses. Having a cool job isn’t enough for this Socialete. He needs to have fun outside of work too which is why, in less than one year, he’s played 5 leagues and gone on two ski trips with us. Talk about packing a lot into a small space (something one of their robots does).
Without further delay, meet Brian! Brian is a native Masshole, born and raised in Litteton. It’s actually a...

Don’t tell Mr. Dillon from Honors American History in High School, but I remember shockingly little of the yearlong course. However, I am fairly certain that Freedom came from the American Revolution and that the American Revolution was about beer. Thus, due to the transitive property of colonial history, Freedom came from Beer. Let me explain…
You see, England was trying to enforce that all her subjects drink tea and only tea, all the time. Ugh. But we said, “NO! No Tea!” And we poured all the Queen’s tea into the Boston Harbor.
It wasn’t over. The Queen then sent some red coats...

Our office is very open with the four of us, Justin, Matt, Mike and Ky, sitting all together with our desks in a big square. No cubes, no walls, just computers and music pumping only to be lowered if someone gets a phone call.
With such an open office we have tons of random ideas and conversation popping up throughout the day. We have tons of crazy ideas. Some of these ideas happened, some will happen, and some just didn’t work out (did you know it would cost 4-7 million for us to throw a party in a blimp and we’d only be able to get 12 people on board?). Well…SBS Gets Jack-Ed was one...

Remember back in 2003 when the Sox/Yankees rivalry boiled over into Pedro vs. Zimmer, then in 2004 we had Tek vs. A-Rod (best quality I could find. I think the Yankees are trying to remove any evidence that this happened), and who could forget A-Rod’s beautiful glove slap (couldn’t find a link. Yankees successfully removed it from existence). Oh, the memories. Now that the rivalry is essentially gone thanks to Damon, Youk, and Wells, Bostonians are looking elsewhere for their rivalry fix. Some find it inside of SBS. Socialete Matt was playing on Got the Runs but after losing to Murder...

When we’re having lunch or our Friday afternoon beers in the office, the conversation usually gravitates toward sports news. Yesterday it was Welker and his move to Denver, Wednesday it was jokes about Fitzpatrick. Today it’s about March Madness. Mike and I have a bit of a rivalry going on with fantasy sports, so quickly the challenge of a March Madness Bracket was brought up. Then Justin jumped in. Then Ky, weighed in. Pretty soon a hot debate about ‘Zaga, Coach K, and Kevin Young’s afro ensued.
A quick call to one of our favorite sponsors helped turn this office debate into a...
