With college all-star games wrapping up and one game left in the NFL season between the Patriots and the Eagles, here’s a look at how the 1st round of the 2018 NFL Draft is shaping out as the order becomes more and more finalized and all underclassmen have declared or decided to return to school.
We've been here before, and we'll be here again. Down but never out.
Boston and Montreal met for the third time in a week Saturday night as the two historic rivals faced off for their second straight Hockey Night in Canada at the Bell Centre. The Bruins had won the previous two meetings heading into the evening. They looked to extend their point streak to 16 games. Montreal entered the meeting fresh off a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals on the road. Canadiens’ captain Max Pacioretty had two goals in the game and six in six games coming into the night.
Coming off a 4-1 home win over their rivals the Montreal Canadiens the victory was short lived for the Boston Bruins who had to travel to Brooklyn for a date with the Islanders. The Bruins have handled the Isles this season winning 3-1 at TD Garden and most recently 5-1 at Barclays Center. The Barclays Center has been a friendly place for the B's who are 4-0-0 life time in the Islanders new building. On back-to-back nights Anton Khudobin picked up the start oppositeJaroslav Halak who had started the past two games against Boston. This would be the 166th career meeting between these two clubs with the Bruins winning 84 of those contests
Dwight Howard donning a Superman costume, Blake Griffin posterizing a sedan, harlequin mascots being used as hurdles - the NBA Slam Dunk Contest has recently mutated into a bizarre circus. What once used to be an unparalleled exhibition of pure athleticism, featuring some of the greatest competitors to ever play the game, has now become merely a platform for product placement and decaffeinated showmanship. It’s not even called “the NBA Slam Dunk Contest” anymore; it’s officially referred to as the “Verizon Slam Dunk”. So where did we go wrong?
We are through the first two weeks of the playoffs and it has, to say the least, been a blast to watch. We’ve seen upsets, we’ve seen a walk off touchdown, and other amazing feats that have never happened before. This week will determine the Super Bowl match up, which is going to feature at least one backup quarterback, what an odd thought.
Last Week’s Record: 2-2
Regular Season Record: 169-89
Playoff Record: 4-4
Paul Pierce Has the Right to Be Upset That the Celtics Tried to Share His Jersey Retirement Night with Isaiah Thomas’ Tribute
I am going to go on a rant that might rub people the wrong way so I am sorry in advance.
So for those who don’t know, in August, the Celtics announced they would be retiring Paul Pierce’s number on February 11 versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. A night that tons of fans would love to see, especially against their rival Cleveland.

The Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Foxboro for their third conference championship game where the Patriots will play in their seventh (13th total) in as many years.
Throughout this first half of the season, the major rumor circling the Boston Celtics is the possibility of acquiring Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis at the trade deadline. Celtics fans have been extremely excited about the possibility of Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis playing together in Beantown but the reality is we should not give up our future for one player.
