Like I always say, “Rondo rules.” Ok, so maybe I’ve been a little rough on Rondo because he seemed to turn into a circus bear 15% of the time, juggling the ball for no apparent reason then mauling anyone near him, (although, I often like whom he chooses to maul). But, last night, like he’s done several times this season, he carried the Celts to victory, first with this play, then an OT where he outscored the Heat himself. I bet we could get a lot for him in trade now…
Fact: The Pats have never won a Superbowl with Wes Welker on their team. While there’s no denying that Welker has been unreal for Brady the reality is David Patton, and Bethel Johnson have been enough in the past. I know, one step at a time.
The playoffs looks good for the Pats. The Ravens always find someone way to lose to us then blame the refs-besides, they’ll always be jealous because Edgar Allan Poe was actually from Boston. Anyone can die in Baltimore- and the Colts have already gone home for the year. All that’s left is the Chargers who are bound to be arrested before we’d have to face them. So, that’s clear sailing to the Superbowl and plenty of time to re-sign Bethel Johnson and David Patton in the meanwhile.
The Pats game is this Sunday at 1 pm. We still do not take reservations. However, 2 floors will be open for the game.
More Thoms Foolery
It is really “THE” Rivalry in all of sports although few people care in the least bit about it. Well, we do. This Friday night BC and BU will meet on the neutral ground that is Fenway Park to play hockey. It’s the ghost of Harry Agannis vs. the ghost of Lou Merloni.
What else is going on in New England? Surprise! More wackiness in New Bedford.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'
