Celtics Report Card: No Need for Negativity

If there were any time for the Boston Celtics to make a statement, this past week was certainly a good one.

What We Learned This Week: The Wrong Carpenter, Jeremynsanity, & Adios Wake

It’s official: Theo Epstein is only worth a mopup reliever who had a terrible, John Lackey-esque ERA in AAA.

And it appears I nearly got […]

Celtics Report Card: A Week to Forget

The NFL season is over. As if that wasn’t miserable enough, the Boston Celtics were unable to vanquish their most hated and bitter rivals (the Los Angeles Lakers), losing when Pau Gasol’s ugly mug and disgusting neckbeard scared the ball away from the basket at the end of overtime. Then they couldn’t even bounce back […]
