What Can We Do Now?

So we’ve lost our two playoff teams in the same week. How are we going to recover? I guess for most of us, the Bruins Game 7 against the ‘Canes will be the last hockey game we will see until next April, just enough time to rebuild our faith in them. It was a painful […]

Dwight Howard Calls Out Stan Van Gundy

Uh oh…trouble in paradise. It looks like Dwight Howard agrees with me here, and rightfully so I say. The play calling for the Orlando Magic in Game 5 was atrocious. You’ve got a foul-prone Perkins (not to say he hasn’t defended Howard well) and a Celtics team that can’t shoot the ball into the ocean […]

Celtics Squeak Out Game 5 Win
