Tried something a little different for this Morning Cup of Green. Instead of asking (on Twitter) for ideas, topics, or questions, I decided to ask a very specific question and react to your answers. We will get into the guys you want traded and also the guys you want to target.
While watching the Chargers/Ravens game two weeks ago, I began pontificating on how absolutely gorgeous the Los Angeles Chargers’ (ugh...still can’t get used to that) uniforms were. The color scheme, the simplicity, the lightning bolt. It just works on so many aesthetic levels. Then I began thinking fondly about my beloved Patriots’ red, white, and blue kits. So when I start thinking all things football, naturally I hit up Guy Boston Sports’ Patriots blogger Shane Braman for his take on the snappiest uniforms in football. That got us thinking about if you had to pick the best uniforms in the game, whose would come out on top. We decided we’d do a “Uniform Draft” where we alternated picks, to see who could put together the best “roster” of our favorites.
Celtics Fall to Nets and Extend Losing Streak to 3; Locker Room Continues Chaotic Downward Spiral as Jaylen Brown Fires Back at Kyrie Irving for Public Comments From Saturday
The Celtics dropped Monday night's game to Brooklyn 109-102 as one of their worst stretches of the season continues to get worse. The Celtics current 3-game losing streak is tied for their longest losing streak of the season and they could be headed for another loss as they'll face off against the top-seeded Toronto Raptors in Boston on Wednesday.
I've been a Celtics fan my entire life and I've seen the gamut when it comes to this team. I grew up during the salad days of the 1980s, idolizing Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parish as they won three titles in five trips to the Finals. I followed the team as the (original) Big Three era limped its way to its conclusion with the retirements of Bird and McHale. I still remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard about first Len Bias and then Reggie Lewis dying and I survived the awful, awful mid-to-late 1990s Celtics teams of the Rick Pitino era. The 2000s brought a brief blip of excitement when Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker led the C's to an Eastern Conference Finals run in 2002 and then a slow descent into mediocrity. The trades for Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett in 2007 made them instant contenders and their teaming up with Pierce led to banner #17 in 2008 (and should have led to at least one more, especially in 2010).
The Bruins looked to close out a second-straight season series in style as the B's hosted the Montreal Canadiens for the fourth and final meeting of the regular season between the two clubs. Boston, who clinched a 3-1 regular season series victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs with a 3-2 win Saturday night, looked for the same result as they hosted the Habs at TD Garden Monday evening.
DOMINATION (noun): supremacy or preeminence over another, exercise of mastery or ruling power, also known as "The Patriot Way".
Inconsistent play continues to be the name of the game for the Celtics, as they dropped their second straight contest in a confusing 105-103 loss to the Magic on Saturday.
The final play of the game went to the 6’8 Jayson Tatum, as Kyrie Irving could do nothing but watch as the ball fell off the rim and ended the Celtics’ hopes for a comeback.
With just four points separating Toronto and Boston in the Atlantic Division standings, it was a predetermined fact that neither team would simply fold in the finale of the season-series. In the previous three meetings, the victor was dominate, winning by two or more goals each time. But, Saturday's installment was different.
Growing up in the house that I grew up in, three things were certain on Sundays. My dad was behind the bar in our garage, my aunt had to make her nachos, and whenever the Patriots were on we were watching. Now a little background about my family. My father was voted 2000 Patriots Fan of The Year. We used to host insane kickoff parties at the start of every season, some of which involved 75-80 guests and us having to rent several Port-A-Pottys to facilitate all these people.
