I know last night’s game between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers was a late one, but I hoped you got a chance to stay up and watch most, if not all, of it.   I did – which is why I am so useless so far this morning! – and it was entertaining.  Win or lose this season, all I want is to see the Boston Celtics compete, and continue to honor the history of the franchise so that future teams know why the Boston Celtics are the greatest professional basketball team in the world.

Okay – sorry for the soap box!  On to the links!
