Couple causes disturbance at Herrell’s in Northampton, throws ice cream in direction of staff

Wrong on the facts, Matt. There were about 3000 MORE people at the UMass-UNH game at Gillette several years back, when UMass was still in the FCS. Millions spent to get us to Division I and we can't break the old record, even with full-page ads in the Globe and a local, bigger-name opponent. ...(full comment)

A triple play in New England - Maine, Connecticut and Mass will have governors who are on the people's side in 2015.
