Marathon Monday

Another Patriots Day is upon us with the Boston Marathon and traditional 11:00 AM Red Sox game. Your Celtics are champions of the Atlantic Division and have the t-shirts to prove it. We also have the beginnings of a week of NFL draft coverage.

Peter May doesn’t seem all that impressed, but I guess that’s just May being May. Steve Bulpett says this was just one of the Celtics goals for this season, and they have more ahead of them. Tim Weisberg is excited about what he’s seen from the Celtics young big man duo of Al Jefferson and Kendrick Perkins, who were both particularly impressive facing Shaquille O’Neal and Alonzo Mourning in Friday nights win over Miami.
