Scary Depictions Of Boston Sports History

Posted in Modern Art, Tourism at 2:38 pm by

As seen at Allston, MA’s Sports Depot.  I can get over the omissions of Ted Williams, Bobby Orr, Larry Bird, Jim Plunkett and Carl Yastrzemski, but cannot quite reconcile why there’s a basketball growing out of Tim Wakefield’s shoulder.

    I lived around the corner from Sports Depot until about four months ago. Its equally-puzzling depiction of the 2003-ish Sox is also worth noting.

    OH MY GOD WHY ARE YOU AT THE SPORTS DEPOT DONT GET THE SCALLOPS

    CTC’s comment is my favorite in awhile. Such a specific and caring warning, so urgently delivered.

    Also, and this might seem weird, but Joe: are you the comment artist formerly known as Hot Shit College Student? That guy disappeared, but there’s a chance that his nom de comments just kind of timed-out, accuracy-wise.

    Why hasn’t some Mass Art student been hired to paint over Johnny Damon?

    You’d think they would have removied Damon and Vinatieri from the Mural by now.
