A nice feature from WHDH channel 7 is that the Sunday late night sports show “Sports Extra” is archived on its web site, and you can watch it at a later time without having to tape it or stay up until midnight. It seems to be a high quality stream, with good video and clarity. Jackie MacMullan was on last night’s show, talking about Nets/Celtics game one. There were clips from Bill Walton, Bob Cousy, KC Jones, and Chris Ford talking about the resurgence of the Celtics.
On the NBC pregame yesterday, Peter Vecsey dropped a rumor that Larry Bird and M.L. Carr are attempting to bring an expansion franchise to Charlotte to replace the Hornets. Commisioner David Stern confirmed there is interest to do such a thing, but that is not past the expressed interest stage.
WEEI’s Glen Ordway says it’s a good sign the Celtics played so badly yesterday, and “didn’t get smoked”. He says there is a lot of adjustments that can be made against this New Jersey team.
John Molori’s latest “Media Blitz” column is up, and talks more about the racism debate on D&C that was chronicled here as well.
