7 Down.

I watched my first Celtics game of the year last night. I liked it. The defense was much better than I expected and it seemed like they could score from every position. But, judging from their fast break, it didn't appear the team had completely gelled yet. That's scary. They're 7-0 and have room to improve.

What impressed me most was the the role players. Perkins played the center position well, defending the inside, grabbing boards (8), and disrupting shots (4 blocks). He even kicked a few out for easy baskets. His offense wasn't so pretty, but it didn't have to be; we have plenty of guys that can score. Still, I'd like to see the Chief teach him a few upfakes so he could draw some fouls.

It feels so good to root for this team again. Look for the Celtics' crowds to get big at the bar.

The Undefeated Celtics

With their win last night the Celtics (6-0) are taking a run at the Patriots record (9-0). Paul Pierce led scorers with 31 and reportedly even did push-ups between free throws to taunt the crowd. If anyone has a picture or video of this, please send it to me. As the Celtics roll, so do the Knicks.

After being told that he would not be starting, Marbury left the team on Tuesday then told a source who told the NY Daily News :
"Isiah has to start me. I've got so
much (stuff) on Isiah and he knows it. He thinks he can (get) me. But I'll (get)
him first. You have no idea what I know."
Blackmail! I love it. This is the most ridiculous franchise in sports.

More blackamil: Because of the success of the Big Three Thom's is now offering Thom's Ale during Celtics games for $3.
