The Boston Herald's "Inside Track" reports that "City of Champions", a new DVD celebrating the best and worst moments in Boston Sports will debut next month. The DVD features 100 minutes of Boston's greatest/worst sports moments. Adam Vinatieri's Snow Bowl kick. Red Sox winning their first World Series in 86 years. Doug Flutie's Hail Mary pass. It's all on the new DVD all set to a rocking soundtrack.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe catches up with former Patriots wide receiver David Patten. Patten looks back at his time with the Patriots fondly, but is looking forward to new challenges with the Washington Redskins in which he will be competing to be the number 1 receiver on the team. ''We did so many good things in New England together and now I'm trying to bring those things to Washington. The team concept is so important and winning as a team are basic concepts that we perfected. I'm so excited about Washington and what can happen there. I'm in a new role there as a top receiver in the offense and as a leader. We already have a coach who is a legend and who wants to show everyone that he can be just as effective in this era. My time there so far has been everything I hoped it would be. There's so much potential," said Patten. Cafardo also offers Patriots notes in his article.
