This week, Danny previewed the Stanley Cup Playoffs with WEEI.com’s Ty Anderson

  DANNY PICARD: So the regular season is over, and the Bruins will take on the Ottawa Senators in the first round. What are your thoughts on the first-round matchup being Ottawa and not Washington? I think you’ll agree with me that Ottawa is the more favorable matchup for the Bruins. It’s not an easy […]

This week, Danny talked with Sports Illustrated’s WWE Insider Justin Barraso

DANNY PICARD: How did you get involved in covering professional wrestling? Because it’s pretty cool. I grew up a diehard WWF fan. I went to WrestleMania 14 at the Fleet Center. Now, I look at what you do, and I read your stuff on SI.com, and it’s awesome. How did you get involved in this?   […]

This week, Danny gives his 2017 MLB predictions

  It’s time for another Major League Baseball season. And with Opening Day on Sunday, that means it’s also time for my predictions.   But first, let me just say that I’m glad we no longer have to wonder if this is “the year” for the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs won the World Series last year […]

This week, Danny talked Patriots with Comcast SportsNet’s Mike Giardi

  DANNY PICARD: So, we all still have our eyes on the Malcolm Butler situation. And some people are just waiting for him to get traded. I actually don’t think he is going to get traded. But how do you think this is all going to play out?   MIKE GIARDI: Yeah, I do think […]

This week, Danny talked Patriots offseason with Comcast SportsNet’s Mike Giardi

DANNY PICARD: I did not expect to be talking about the Patriots trying to trade for Brandin Cooks. Have you heard anything on this interest that the Patriots reportedly have interest in trying to acquire New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks? MIKE GIARDI: That’s not something that would surprise me at all. You look […]

This week, Danny talked Celtics with Brandon Wahlberg

DANNY PICARD: I want your thoughts on what the Boston Celtics did — which is nothing — before the NBA Trade Deadline. BRANDON WAHLBERG: I’m pretty disappointed. I mean, I’d rather them do nothing than make a small trade that might kind of screw things up. If they were going to make a deal, it […]

This week, Danny shared his thoughts on some Patriots choosing not to go to the White House

I don’t care. That’s right, I said it. I don’t care. When it comes to professional athletes going to the White House to celebrate their respective championship, I’m not one that gets too worked up about the team’s attendance. At least six New England Patriots have said they will not be making the trip to […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for Super Bowl LI

  I realize the Super Bowl isn’t until Feb. 5. But I couldn’t wait another week. I already know what’s going to happen a week from Sunday in Houston. And I can’t possibly keep it to myself.   Most NFL analysts and “experts” will hold off from revealing their predictions until next week. But what’s […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for Conference Championship weekend

Let’s call it what it is. I didn’t have a good weekend in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. The only game I got correct was the New England Patriots winning and covering the spread as a 16-point favorite. Makes sense though. The Pats were the closest thing to the sure thing all season […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (+4.5) over Atlanta Falcons -It’s been a nice little season for Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. But I’m afraid we’re about to see the real Matty Ice on Saturday afternoon. And that’s the Matty Ice that soils himself in a big spot. The pressure will be on a Falcons team that finished […]
