Happy Thirsty Thursday everyone, hope you all are surviving the week at work, college or jail. The Celtics as mentioned in my Big Baby post, played last night against the pitiful Nets, and barely squeaked out a win 115-111. By far the funniest part of the night was the rain of boos on Stephon Marbury everytime he touched the ball, Marbury must be less popular with NYers than Eliot Spitzer. I cant wait for the first game between the Celtics and the Knicks at MSG, maybe it would be safer for Stephon to not even show up, or if he does, New York needs to set up metal detectors. Hell they should probably set up bomb sniffing dogs, because New Yorkers are bonkers enough light up the entire building if it means getting retribution on Starbury.
Also mentioned before the Bruins made two trades acquiring Mark Recchi, and Steve Montador at the deadline. I honestly watched Bob Beers and Kevin Dupont break down the trade last night and this is what I got out of it. Mark Recchi is a left handed shooter, who gives the Bruins greater depth on the power play (which I guess has sucked lately), and some veteran prescence. Montador sounds like a fighter, a guy who takes no shit, and gives the Bruins defense another guy who will kick the shit out of anyone who gets in his way. But I guess the biggest news was the trade that was not made, according to Dupont the Bruins were considering trading Phil Kessel for Chris Pronger. The only analysis they gave was that the Bruins knew that Pronger is on his last leg, probably his last year, and couldn't stomach giving up 12 years of Kessel for 1 year of Pronger. Because I know there are alot of hockey fans on this site, my question(s) are: Were you happy with the moves the Bruins made at the deadline? Would you have made the Kessel deal? Should I stop talking about hockey and move on to sports I know more about?
And oh yeah BC lost to NC State....fuck.
