The Celtics let the Memphis Grizzlies hang around last night, and down the stretch just could not execute on offense, leading to their demise in a 90-87 loss. A Rajon Rondo floater with plenty of time on the clock and a Glen Davis desperation three-point attempt are not the ideal shots the Celtics were looking for. Get all the coverage at CelticsLinks.com.
I’m short on time this morning, but the big story people are going to be talking about is tonight’s Bruins/Canadiens rematch. It’s an even bigger story in Montreal, where Mike Felger is now public enemy number 2. (Behind Zdeno Chara, of course.) From the Montreal Gazette this morning:
The intro to the segment promised “fact not fiction,” which told me that the guys at 98.5 The Sports Hub don’t understand the concept of sports talk radio. It’s all about opinion. If you don’t have people expressing opinions and debating the news of the day, it makes for boring radio.
Of course, all you have to do is listen to Felger, the village idiot of Boston sports radio, to know that he likes to play fast and loose with the facts.
Of course, I’m positive that Felger is thrilled with this increase exposure, further expanding the “brand.”
The price has gone up 82% in the last month.
