RAY Don't Hurt Em'

Ray Allen did it again last night taking down the, pesky potential 8 seed, Charlotte Bobcats in the second OT with a clutch three to win it. Is there any question this guy has been this season's Celtics MVP. His resurgance since last year's playoff run has carried the over this entire season. When the Celtics need a big shot Ray is the man by far I want with the ball other than The Truth.
Ray's play this year has reminded me of Mike Lowell's 2007 performance. The old grizzled vet, who everyone says is too old, gets the job done consistently over the season. Hopefully Ray isn't just looking for a contract and doesn't have hip problems like Lowell. I personally don't think he is by any means done. With a shot like his he could be like a Reggie Miller for the rest of his career. The thing is he hasn't stopped taking it to the rack yet. For a 33 year old he is proving the NBA age theories wrong. His stats are up in almost every category especially minutes. Doc has needed to lean on him over this injury stretch and Ray has carried himself brilliantly. I only worry that he may need some rest in the final few games.

I always liked this guy even when he played for other teams. He is a throw back player fundamentally strong, great work ethic, and classy. This year he is proving to be the Celtic's team MVP. Hopefully he can keep the magic going into the playoffs because the C's will need his minutes and scoring the way the injury bug has been hounding the team. Bring on the playoffs!

Frankly My Dear

What the hell is this??? The Sox are shopping out our beloved Fenway Franks to Kayem. This is the biggest change at Fenway since the Monster seats. Well I have news for the wiener makers over at Kayem. Don't F with my Dogs.

When I go to the game I don't care about the color or taste of the Fenway Frank. To me it is more about the experience that goes along with the dog then the taste or nutritional value. Fenway Franks could have been filled with cow dung and I still would have had my 2 dog quota every visit. No other hot dog ever lived up to the hype like the Fenway Frank. Even when I would cook the packed ones at home they couldn't match the delicious steamed goodness of those that the men and women in yellow shirts dished out at baseball's cathedral. So Kayem don't mess this one up. So far I'm wary since those things look way to long for the bun and are not fat and plump like the old Sara Lee or whatever company used to make em. Kayem you've been warned. Don't blow it! ...Go Sox!

Shut 'em Down

Doc has announced that the Celtics will be shutting down K.G. which is a smart decision since the Celtics are a sure lock for the playoffs and they sure as hell are not catching the Cavs. Let Lebron and his posse keep rolling in meaningless regular season games while the C's rest the troops for another post-season run. Really I'm more concerned about Leon Powe getting healthy then K.G. Right now K.G. is like a starving caged tiger that's trainer has been taunting with fresh meat. That fresh meat is the gold ball and K.G. hasn't fed that hunger fully just yet. Nobody wants to be on the court more than K.G. and you can bet you bottom dollar that knee will be as healthy as Paul Pierces was against the Cavs in last year's Eastern Conference Finals "wheel chair" game.

The Celtics haven't really played that well and have been winning. Even the games they haven't won or played that well in they have fought back like the Magic game two Sunday's ago. The chemistry has been off since Marbury came on board, K.G. went down, and Powe's injury. Hopefully Doc and Danny got together and figured out getting the team healthy will be alot more beneficial then having home court come playoff time. Potential match ups NY, Charlotte, or Indiana are not taking down this Celtics team and that's without a healthy K.G. Chicago might be crafty enough to win a couple against the C's but they are not taking down this Celtics team at

the Garden. No way. No how. Hopefully the rest is a calculated risk, which I believe it is on the part of Doc and Danny. While they're at it I hope they don't forget to give Paul, Rondo, and especially a heavily played Sugar Ray. The only things that can stop the C's in my opinion are injuries or the Cavs. Hopefully neither come in their way to Green 18. How nice does that sound?

Hopefully we'll be seeing the "Big" picture again in 2009...
