Brosgol’s Bedford TV News Sports Report: Now Available in The Bedford Citizen

By Dan Brosgol

Bedford TV LogoOn most Mondays at 6 pm the Bedford TV News runs on Comcast Channel 8 and Verizon Channel 38. The broadcast features news from The Bedford Citizen, event announcements, guest interviews, weather forecasts, and musical performances. The broadcast also has a weekly sports report about Bedford high school and youth sports and commentary on the broader sports world. The Citizen has asked to publish the script of the Sports Report, so enjoy reading it… but better yet, tune in on Mondays to watch the show live.

Hello, Bedford, and welcome to the Sports Report for Monday, September 21, 2015.

Boys soccer had an undefeated week last week, drawing Lincoln-Sudbury on Wednesday 0:0 at home and winning in Weston 1:0 on Friday. The girls had a little less success, though falling to L-S 5:0 and to Weston 2:1.

The volleyball team won at Cambridge Rindge and Latin 3:1 on Wednesday, but lost 3:1 at Lincoln-Sudbury on Friday. Their overall record now sits at 2-3, with a big match against Weston this week.

Field hockey dominated Newton South last week, 3-0, and took on Concord-Carlisle onMonday looking to stay above .500, and the golf team split their matches last week, beating Rindge 57-43 and losing to Weston 103-61. The golfers face Wayland and Weston (again) this week.

The football team dropped a heartbreaker in Canton, 14-13 in overtime, on Friday night… but in the words of Bill Belichick, “We’re on to Holy Name Central Catholic”, who the Bucs will meet in their home opener this Friday under the lights at Sabourin Field.

Trivia question, part 1: Where is Holy Name Central Catholic? Worcester
Trivia question, part 2: What is their mascot? The Napoleons. Truth. Check out the amazing logo.

Finally on the BHS front, a big shout out to the six team captains who stopped by the Bedford TV booth at Bedford Day to talk about their current or upcoming seasons…we had volleyball, field hockey, and swimming and diving athletes and it was pretty cool. Also props to our three JGMS student-athletes who came to talk about middle school football, soccer, and cross-country, and finally a what’s up and thank you to our U-12 soccer players who also came by for a chat. Overall, I’ll call our initial foray into sports interviews a general success, and thanks to Bedford TV’s own Julie Antriaisian for not only playing the role of royal diva in the red convertible in the parade, but for rounding up some guests for the live show and for bringing CSNNE’s Kyle Draper over to the Bedford TV booth to say hello. That was cool.

And finally, here’s some Monday Evening Quarterbacking as we celebrate yet another productive road trip to Western New York, with the Patriots (as usual) going out to Orchard Park an coming home with 40-32 over the Bills. For those keeping track, that makes Tom Brady 24-3 all time against the Bills, although if you throw out last year’s final game in which he barely played, make that 24-2.

As if the Patriots needed more motivation for the game, last Sunday the Bills crowd spent the end of the game chanting “WE WANT BRADY” and the Bills players spent most of the week taking shots at the Patriots through the media, full of bravado after throttling an overrated Colts team in Week 1. Well, Bills fans, what does 466 yards and 3 touchdowns feel like?

TB12 was dominant, the Bills defense tried the old lets-not-cover-Gronk scheme that was so successful when the Steelers tried it last week, and the Patriots again showed everyone why they should never, ever, ever, be disrespected. And yes, I’m, talking to you NFL network, whose panel of experts ALL PICKED THE BILLS. WILL YOU EVER LEARN?

The Pats host the Jaguars next Sunday at Gillette, and here’s your lock of the week: The Pats will win HUGE. I‘m predicting a final score in the vicinity of 5600-3.

In the Schadenfreude department, I did enjoy the Packers beating the Seahawks last night in a game replete with the Seahawks losing another second half lead and Pete Carroll making many Pete Carroll faces that was incredibly Déjà vu-y and reminded me of a certain Super Bowl that we had in February.

And in a special Schadenfreude Double Feature, I particularly liked the Ravens dropping to 0-2 with a last-minute loss to the vaunted Oakland Raiders. I’m sure we’ll hear about the formations and air pressure gauges this week out of Baltimore.

Oh, wait. Maybe we won’t.

This is Dan Brosgol, that was the sports report, I won’t see you next week as I’ll be a few thousand miles away, but I’ll catch you back on October 6.
