The Wrath of Rondo

As that great sage of morrowyear Khan Noonien Singh once said, "Revenge is a dish best served cold." Well, it's freezing in Boston and here come the Lakers. 

Apparently one of the Lakers' players set a scoring record in New York this week, but, I'm having trouble finding any mention of it anywhere. So, let's just assume, to be safe, that it was Sasha Vujacic-he of silken hair. Well, I'm sure Ray Allen has another bowl of cold chowder waiting for him. I think tonight we will ring the bell every time Sasha cries.

All right, maybe I'm obsessing over the Lakers. But, the Celts were playing just fine until they ran into the Lakers on Christmas. After that they lost a pitiful 7 of nine. I don't want to see another winning streak interrupted by another losing streak. And I'm not alone.  Even Coach Rivers is a bit worried, "I could care less about the Lakers," said coach Doc Rivers. "We play them twice a year." Did you notice he didn't say "couldn't care less"? A-ha! So the Celts care and you should to. The game starts at 8 p.m. Come out tonight for a huge game and $4 Thom's and Spaceman Ale.

And speaking of the Spaceman: The deft lefty was spotted at Fantasy Camp in Florida this week by a few Thommies. When this bar was brought up he said, "Those guys email me like everyday." Yes. Yes we do.
Hockey News
Your first place by a mile Boston Bruins take on the Ottawa Senators tonight at 7 p.m..  And, since the word "Senator" has come to symbolize corruption lately you might say that your Bruins are taking on Corruption tonight. Good For You Bruins.  Seriously, if you haven't seen the Bruins play yet this year you have to.  Come see their passing and defense and all around high energy game first hand.  And speaking of hockey...
The Bean Pot
In a  stunning turn of events the Huskies of Northeastern annihilated the BC Eagles in round 1 of the Bean Pot Monday. Next Monday NE faces perennial champions BU who barely squeaked by Harvard in the first round.
