Is Fast Track or TPA Constitutional? A federal appeals court held in 2001 that the issue of whether the NAFTA should have been approved as a treaty was a non-justi- ciable political question (Made in the USA Found. v. United States, 242 F.3d 1300 (11 th Cir. 2001)). The U.S. Supreme Court denied re- view in the case. In other words, if you think Congress violates the Constitution by treating FTAs as Congres- sional-Executive Agreements rather than as treaties, the only remedy is to elect a Congress that won't do that. But that won't happen be- cause the people who object to fast track, progressive and TEA Party members will never work together to elect any one. As early as 1890, Congress delegated tariff bargaining authority to the President and authorized him to sus- pend existing duty-free treat- ment on particular items by proclamation. The Supreme Court subsequently held that the authorizing statute, 3 of the Tariff Act of 1890, 26 Stat. 612, did not unconsti- tutionally delegate either legislative or treaty-making authority to the President. 500 Canterbury Street Boston, MA 02131 617.524.1036 ST./0000ICHAEL CEMETERY CREMATORY The Respectful X'y,, Serving the Italian Community [or Over 100 Years! f Boston Harborside Home Joseph A.

Guarino HISTORY OF FOOTBALL IN BOSTON PART V Boston 1940s 1948 Boston Yanks. In 1944, eight years after the Redskins moved out of Boston for our nation's capi- tal, an expansion team was awarded to Ted Collins with the stipulation from the NFL that his team call Boston home. Collins, a show busi- ness manager famous for his relationship with Kate Smith of "God Bless America" fame, initially wanted his team to call New York City home and play at the original Yankee Stadium. Although this dream of play- ing at the stadium would go unfulfilled until 1945 (more on this later), he still named his franchise the Yanks. Calling Fenway Park home and led by Head Coach Herb Kopf, the Boston Yanks mus- tered a pathetic 2-8 record in their inaugural season. Kopf was supposed to act as a bandage while Collins waited on the legendary Jim Crowley, a member of Notre Dame's "Four Horseman" backfield, to complete his tenure at Navy. However, Crowley never came to Bos- ton deciding instead to take the position of commis- sioner of the newly formed All-America Football Confer- ence, which was to rival the NFL. The Yanks team colors were green and gold, a trib- ute to the Notre Dame Fight- ing Irish. But neither the success of the Irish nor their namesakes ever for- mulated here in Boston. In their five seasons in Boston, the Yanks never had a win- ning record, the franchises best season coming in 1947 when it posted a 4-7-1 mark. Due to World War II, a need for troops caused a player shortage throughout the NFL. Some teams were forced to merge squads to be able to maintain a competi- tive roster. In 1943, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles joined forces in the Keystone State to form the Steagles. In 1945, the Yanks and Brook- lyn Tigers merged for a piti- ful 3-6-1 record. That season the team played the major- ity of its' home games at Fenway Park, but Collins would see his dream realized when his Yanks played the New York Giants to a 13-all draw in what was consid- ered a home game at Yan- kee Stadium. During its time in Boston the team featured Italian- American players such as Quarterback Paul Governali, Duke Abbruzzi and Medford, Massachusetts native Gary Famiglietti. Following five below .500 seasons, Collins petitioned the NFL to move the fran- chise to New York City. In- stead of a straight relocation, Collins also wanted to offi- cially fold the Yanks so that he could claim a tax write off. In 1949, the Yanks had become the Bulldogs and by 1950, Collins dream was finally fulfilled when he renamed the franchise the New York Yanks. The Yanks would leave New York for Dallas in 1952, becoming the Texans for one season. From there the franchise was sold to new ownership based out of Baltimore, finally achieving both suc- cess and stability as the Colts. It would not be until 1959, when the American Football League awarded William "Billy" Sullivan a franchise that Boston got another chance at pro football. Team ownership was the primary reason that profes- sional football never caught on in Boston as the Bulldogs, Braves/Redskins or Yanks ever had stability at the own- ership level. In fact, if it hadn't been for Sullivan's determination, the Boston Patriots may have never made it out of its formative years. Sullivan lost money to keep his franchise in Boston, never looking to leave the city he loved. For Sullivan it was Boston or bust. Unfortunately for Sullivan, his on field product has secured him an unde- served contemptuous legacy in Boston sports history. Yanks owner Ted Collins with Kate Smith.
