Bruins could learn from current Stanley Cup contenders
Summer hasn’t even officially started yet but it feels like it has been months since the Bruins last played a game at TD Garden. They just missed out on the playoffs and scattered around the world for the longer than expected offseason, so it has been a quiet couple weeks on Causeway Street. Who knows how much of the postseason that they are watching but for the Bruins (and Boston’s in flux front office) that have tuned in, here are some things they have probably noted: they need a top...
Honest Trailers hits 100
Screen Junkies' video series Honest Trailers, which pokes fun at blockbusters — sometimes lovingly, sometimes not so lovingly — has hit its 100th episode with the Honest Trailer for "Fifty Shades of Grey." To celebrate the occasion, we went behind the scenes with Honest Trailers creator Andy Signore to find out the secret to their online success. Where it all started: "'Phantom Menace' was being released in Imax 3-D, and I remember the disappointment in that movie. Everyone was so hyped, and...
Kenneth Cole aims at cash strapped millennials with smartwatch
With a starting price of $349, cash strapped millennials may have a tough time making room in their budget for an Apple Watch. That’s where Kenneth Cole hopes to swoop in with its entry in the smartwatch market: the Kenneth Cole Connect.

Danny Picard: Celtics should steer clear of Kevin Love in free agency
I’m not going to lie. Last year at this time, I was begging the Boston Celtics to acquire Kevin Love in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves. My, what a difference a year makes. And it has absolutely nothing to do with his on-court talent. Kevin Love can opt-out of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers this summer. His team has advanced to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, but his season is over after having successful surgery to repair a dislocated left shoulder that he suffered in...
Tech training helps young NYers launch lucrative careers
Tech is big business, but many New Yorkers don't have the necessary skills to snag jobs that come with high starting salaries. But, a selective city program trains locals to break into the industry quicker than going to college for a degree. Last Sunday, as the rest of New York City relished in the sunshine and spring heat, Jayana Johnson was inside the Flatiron School’s Brooklyn campus, not far from the Brooklyn Bridge with enticing views of the Manhattan skyline. Slippers were tucked under...

VIRAL VIDEO: Watch these 'old men' bust a groove on 'Britain's Got Talent'
During a recent broadcast of Britain's talent competition show, "Britain's Got Talent," a group of five men who are considered old showcased their dance skills in front of the judges and it was impressive. As soon as the dancing dads start their routine, you can see the look of shock in all of the judge's faces. The men don't appear to be old per se, but to see a person that age bopping around non-stop without resting is impressive to us.

Demario Davis a big fan of Jets fan Louie Gonzalez
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Usually following an NFL game, dozens if not hundreds of fans will line-up outside MetLife Stadium for a chance to meet a player and grab a photo.

A former resident of New York City who now lives in Florida, Gonzalez is a lifelong Jets fan who suffers from a rare brain disorder. Over the...
