There is no question about it. I have been “running on Dunkin” for a good two weeks now. Since the Red Sox start today at 1 (Masterson vs. Kendrick), I’ll be getting my “sleep on” at about 6:30pm tonight. If I can keep my head off my desk, I’ll be keeping you updated on the game through Twitter today.
It may be the lack of sleep, but I am still baffled on how a team in the NBA Finals gives up 131 pts. Run 4 effin’ corners to save an ounce self respect. Something! You are on national television for all that is holy!
The picture you see on this main post, was an image that was burnt into my memory up until last night. That picture summed up years of Boston Celtics frustrations. You can see the pain in both Rivers and Ainge’s faces. That’s all over after last night!
Since The Cup of Giddiness is overflowing - let’s scoop some of it up and show some love to the Boston Red Sox. What the C’s did this year was nothing short of spectacular, but don’t overlook the Red Sox.
Here is our “Excuses Hank would be Chain Smoking Over” List:
Allow us to add - this is all before the All-Star Game.
That’s a pretty significant list right there! Most teams finding themselves sliding in the standings when they lose one of their top pitchers. The Red Sox have lost, at one time or another, Schilling, Matsuzaka, Beckett, Colon and Buchholz.
They’ve been without the services of the most clutch hitter in modern-day baseball history. The greatest hitter in modern-day baseball history has also been shelved from time-to-time.
Any excuses from that team? NONE. They sit atop the American League East and continue to have players fill roles.
Some teams whine when they aren’t winning, others dig in and find ways to win.
