Celtics to Subpoenas

I probably mispelled subpoena but hey who cares.

It is actually fun to watch NBA basketball again and I think alot of it has to do with the return of this man. At first I was worried that we'd go back to the 3 point taking and missing shoot or miss team we were a few years ago but Walker seems to have more energy and that seems to have rubbed off on the team. With Walker, Pierce, and Davis, we have 3 really good players to take alot of our shots. I can't wait to see how this team does in the playoffs. I don't think we'll win the conference but we might be a factor.

Congress subpeonas ballplayers
There are two names that stand out on this list and the lack of one causes notice. Curt Schilling and Frank Thomas do not have much of a history of being accused of steroid use. I think their presence is simply because they've been around and know who might be doing what. Schilling is a very outspoken person and even publicly stated that he beleived Bonds was on HGH. However, Bonds didn't get subpoened by Congress. Neither did Gary Sheffield.

The Red Sox beat the Twins 7-4 and were rained out today. They're 6-2 in Spring Training, 4-2 in the Grapefruit League, and 2-1 in the Mayor's Cup.

West Virginia beat Providence in the 1st round of the Big East Tournament. They'll play the BC Eagles Thursday. BC beat the Mountaineers twice this season. They beat them 73-53 in Morgantown, WV and won 62-50 in Chestnut Hill. There is no reason for BC not to advance.

By the way, it doesn't really matter, but it is bullshit that UConn was presented with a Big East trophy and BC wasn't. BC had a better overrall record and beat UConn in Hartford. The Big East is obviously pissed at Boston College for leaving for the ACC. BC has never been the focus of the Big East behind Syracuse and UConn in basketball and Miami and Virginia Tech in football. Why the hell should it be loyal to a conference that is collapsing and never really featured BC to begin with? This screw job will only make a Big East tourney win even better.

Holy Cross was the first New England team into the NCAA tournament after winning another Patriot League title. Every year it seems as though HC almost has a huge upset but every year they fall short. One of these years, they'll be the first 16 seed to beat a 1 seed.
