Thanksgiving still stands as Latin Day as purple players have only lost three times in the last 47 Thanksgiving Day football match-ups. For decades since I graduated back in 1966, the English Bulldogs haven't looked that well. I heard this year's team started calling themselves the Blue Angels. Perhaps, a name change was all that was needed, huh? We will see for sure next Thanks- giving Day morning over at Harvard Stadium. EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani Twins Sign Up Hughes Good Baseball Country America Right hander Phil Hughes and the Minnesota Twins have agreed to a $24 million, three year deal. Hughes went 4-14 with a 5.19 ERA with the Yankees in 2013. He was 1-10 at home in Yankee Stadium with a 6.32 ERA. Hughes and the Twins are both hoping pitcher friendly Target Field will be on target for the righty. Back in 2010, he was an 18 game winner and All-Star. Maddux, Glavine Top Hall Candidates Four-time Cy Young win- ner Greg Maddux, two-time Cy Young winner Tommy Glavine and two-time AL MVP Frank Thomas are among 19 newcomers on this year's Hall of Fame ballot who will be joining Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa returning for another try. Last year Craig Biggio almost made it along with Jack Morris who will be on the ballot for his final time. I can't believe Jack Morris keeps missing the ballot selection. He was one of the premier pitchers on the mound during his era. A consistent winner, he may end up having to wait until it really doesn't count anymore.

James Skinner, as CEO in 2011 and the first half of 2012, pock- eted $31 million in exercised stock options and other fully deductible "performance pay." Incoming CEO Donald Thompson took in $10 mil- lion in performance pay in his first six months on the job. Skinner and Thompson's combined per- formance pay translates into a $14 million taxpayer sub- sidy for McDonald's. What makes all this even more galling is that these fast food giants are pocketing massive taxpayer subsidies for their CEO pay while fighting to keep their workers' wages at rock bot- tom. All of the big fast food corporations are members of the National Restaurant Association, which is ag- gressively working to block a raise in the federal mini- mum wage to a level that would let millions of fast food workers make ends meet without public support. There's an easy solution to the perverse "perfor- mance pay" loophole.

Corporations could still pay their CEOs whatever they choose, but at least tax- payers wouldn't be subsidiz- ing anything above $1 mil- lion. The Joint Committee on Taxation estimates this legislation would generate more than $50 billion over I0 years. It makes no sense for employees of highly profit- able giant corporations to have to rely on government assistance for basic needs. It makes even less sense for ordinary taxpayers to sub- sidize the CEOs who are benefiting most from the fast food industry's low-road busi- ness model. With Congress again mulling deficit-reduction strategies, it's high time that Washington stopped letting fast food giants gorge on both of these absurd subsidies.

WITNESS, HON. PETER C. DiGANGI, First Justice of this Court. Date: November 21, 2013 Tara E. DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 12/6/13 ATOP THE DIVISION -- What was that sight that the basketball world awoke to on the morning of December St"? Yes, it was true. And it was something to behold. For all throughout Celtics Nation there was joy, however fleet- ing it may be. The Celtics were actually in first place -- -- yes, that's right, first place -- in the rather weak Atlantic Division. The C's got that way by downing the Milwaukee Bucks at the Garden, giving the Green eight wins against 12 losses and lofting the C's to the top at the quarter mark (20 games) of the NBA season. Who would have thought it Was possible, even though the Celtics were only playing .400 ball? No one. All the pun- dits had buried the Celtics in the preseason. But it's the Celtics that continue to con- found the doubters. In truth, no one knew how long this would last. Just a day or two, a few more days, a week or possibly longer. But even if it turns out to be just a fleeting moment in time, it was a genuine positive sign in a rather long season. On the same day that the Celtics led the Atlantic Division, former Celtics Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were with the Brooklyn Nets, a team that was occupying the next to last place in the division. One wonders what they think of their situations now. And remember. The win- ner of the division automati- cally is awarded a berth in the playoffs regardless of won- loss record. That's something to think about as the season continues. It's just one more item to keep in mind as, over time, the number of positives coming out of the Garden continues to grow. Coach Brad Stevens admit- ted he is aware of the stand- ings but that they play no role in how he conducts prac- tices or coaches in games. He simply said that the team is gradually getting better. He cited how he continues to become more familiar with the NBA as he travels around the league in his first NBA coaching season and how the team continues to be- come more knowledgeable about his expectations. He said it was a process con- cerning both how he and the players continue to grow closer together as the season progresses. READY WHEN NEEDED -- They are the ultimate sub- stitutes in the National Hockey League. In a game where all the skaters who suit up on any given night will play, only they may remain inactive, confined to the bench. If they played forward, cen- ter or on the wing, they would have taken several shifts by the end of the first period in a typical game. But they are a different breed. For them, life is in the slow lane until they are called to action. It may be once over the course of several games, as regula as once a week or perhaps only once every couple of weeks. In some instances it is even more infrequent than that. They are the substitute goalies of the NHL. Their main job consists of waiting in case they are needed. In many games they are not, so they keep sharp by facing shots in practice. But when they are called upon they must be ready. Chad Johnson is the man who must be always prepared for the Boston Bruins. Tuukka Rask is the man of the hour for the Boston Bruins -- and he knows exactly how Chad Johnson feels. As recently as two seasons ago Rask was in a similar position -- backing up Tim Thomas as T-T played every single minute of every single Stanley Cup game during the memorable 2010-2011 championship season. But during the regular sea- son NHL teams have devel: oped rational plans for their backup goalies: they simply start them once in a while. It keeps them sharp, it gives the regular netminder a rest and it helps keep the backup sharp in case he needs to enter the game under emer- gency conditions. This helps their confi- dence, their morale and their overall conditioning "Yeah, Chad is gaining con- fidence," noted Bruins head coach Claude Julien follow- ing the victory Johnson posted over Columbus on No- vember 30 th. He's almost play- ing once a week now," said Julien as he recalled the limited action Johnson saw at the start of the season.. "He's starting to play more on a regular basis for a backup and seems to be getting in sync and more comfortable." And maybe it's a two way street between the coach and his second goalie. "That's what you want from your second goaltender: that he can go in there and allow you to win some games," said Julien. So far he's done a pretty good job of that despite the fact that he had some long breaks earlier in the season." For his part Johnson says he just focuses on being ready for action. "When I'm in the game I just focus on being prepared -- especially when the skaters are com- ing down on me. I just like to make sure I'm ready. I try not to let distractions creep into my head." The Bruins have been a strong defensive team of late, allowing fewer than 20 shots on net in consecutive con- tests over a recent two-game span. Let's just say it can get a little inactive at times around the Bruins' crease. But that's a happy case that any coach or goaltender will take, even for a backup like Chad Johnson, as the Bruins proceed through the season en route to a possible long run in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
