Is Cordarrelle Patterson Serious? I Can't Believe His Response When Asked About Being a Super Bowl Champ...
Cordarrelle Patterson. Cordarrelle flippin' Patterson... A guy I thought I really liked. Key word now being "thought." I am shocked by Patterson's answer when asked what it feels like to be a Super Bowl champ...
Capping off a 2-game long road trip that saw the Revs weather a literal storm in Colorado last week, the team found themselves at Audi Field up against D.C. United last night. D.C., who had been sitting in second place in the Eastern Conference, looked to close the gap between themselves and the 1st place Union, while the Revolution were aiming to enter the playoff picture for the first time in what felt like a millennium. New acquisition Gustavo Bou sadly could not have his visa approved in time, and was unable to officially make the 18 for the match, however, he was able to travel with the team, and enjoy spending time with his new teammates. With Luciano “Lucho” Acosta serving a one-game suspension for a red card he had earned in a 2-0 loss a week prior, and Antonio Mlinar Delamea serving a suspension for yellow card accumulation, both sides were without crucial facets of their starting XI’s.
This afternoon at 4:30, the top seeded "Summer Celtics" take on the Grizzlies -- who they just beat by 26 points on Thursday night -- in the first round of the Summer League playoffs. If you're going to be watching or following along with any of the rest of the Celtics' Summer League playoff games, there's a few things you should make sure to keep an eye out for.
With Free-Agency essentially wrapped up and most of the player movement done for the summer, it feels like a natural time to take a good look at all of the new rosters and see how they stack up against one another. I'll be saving the best for last, so in this first of three "Power Ranking's" articles, I'll be starting with the teams ranked 30-21.
Boston Sports Stock Exchange: Is Tacko Here to Stay? Bye Bye to Yabu, and Celtics Fans Need to Get in on Carsen Fever (9th Edition)
Alright, I don’t mean to get carried away here. I realize this is a bold statement. Isaiah Thomas was one of the most beloved Celtics players to ever step on the hardwood. He sacrificed everything for that team, including the rest of his career. Yes, I said it, his career. Thomas played on a hip injury that was getting worse, and worse, by the second. Some say he did it for himself, in hopes of getting paid, which is true. However, I still think he put on for his city. He played through it. He also played through off-court distractions, like his sister’s death. Isaiah also had many, MANY historical nights while repping a Celtics jersey. So again, I am not trying to get carried away here.
Bruce Arena’s first big move as Sporting Director of the Revolution has finally been announced, with the signing of Argentine forward Gustavo Bou from Club Tijuana of Liga MX. The move, which had been rumoured for weeks finally came to fruition Wednesday afternoon, a day after the Summer Transfer Window had opened up again. Many believed the delay in announcing the record-breaking signing was in part to Bou’s former club, Tijuana, looking for and acquiring a suitable replacement. Bou will officially become a DP following the approval of his P-1 ITC visa.
After getting embarrassed in front of an international television audience in London, the Red Sox flew back to the USA with their tails between their legs to finish the first "half" of the season with two road series in Toronto and Detroit. The chance to lick their wounds and pick up some wins against two of the worst teams in the league would normally look good on paper, but given how this season's squad tends to play down to the level of their competition and hasn't always faced adversity head-on, I had no assumptions as the games started.
