Worst. Winter. Ever.

Just a few quick links this snowy morning…

The Celtics beat the Bobcats last night, 108-100. Kevin Henkin on the BSMW Full Court Press has a look back at a grinder at the Garden last night, as he compiled his thoughts during the game, stream-of-consciousness style. CelticsLinks.com has the stories from this morning.

Scott on Patriots Daily looks at the early moves of free agency, including a good-bye to Asante Samuel and the uncertain status of Randy Moss. You can also look in at PatriotsLinks.com to see all the current stories on the team.

RedSoxLinks.com and BruinsLinks.com should get you all the rest of your sports stories today.

Chad Finn offers up some thoughts on Sam Cassell, Asante Samuel, Barry Bonds and Rosevelt Colvin among others.

Michael Gee reminds us that Larry Bird skipped the White House ceremony with Ronald Reagan after the 1984 Championship. If WEEI had existed then, would Bird have gotten skewered by the morning show as Manny did this week? Especially since it was Reagan in the White House?

Come to think of it, Bird did a few “odd” things while he was here with the Celtics, bar fights in the playoffs, the “Moses does eat *****!” at the parade ceremony, and quite a bit of other stuff. How would the modern-day sports media have treated Bird?

    Bruce,

    I do remember Eddie Andelman having fun with the Bird comment about Moses. But it wasn’t as intense as WEEI today.

    Bruce,

    I’ve always thought how Ted Williams would have been treated today by the media and fans. I imagine it would be more intense (both ways) than the way Manny is treated, i.e. bashed by the media and generally loved by the fans.

    Think Teddy Ballgame would have played his whole career here?

    Manny has a few incidents every year.
    Bird had a few incidents through his years…it’s not fair to put him in the same category as Manny as far as overall wackiness.

    I sent Tomase an email…This was his reply to me:>>>>>>>

    The comments thing isn’t my call. The paper has rules against readers
    threatening the lives of its writers. Shrug. You’re always welcome to e-mail.

    I don’t *think* I said the Browns signed Stallworth because of that one catch.
    I merely said they saw him at his best. They signed him to pair with Braylon
    Edwards.

    As for laying off the doughnuts, absolutely not. I love them too much, and
    they’re an essential part of my sportswriter diet.
