    F*** Jordan With Oakley's Walking Stick: The Best Celtics Shooting Guards

    Agree totally. And when you look at his 9-0 Game 7s he is off the charts. High of 47 ('63 vs Cinci) low 18, avg 27. And when he first came up Red thought of him more as a defensive player. When Sam and KC were on the bench Red would put them in as a tandem in the 2nd quarter and they'd stifle...

    Game 6 1963 NBA Finals on now. Celtics-Lakers.

    Cracking a beer to celebrate Ring #6! I remember listening to this game on my transistor late at night. Numerous blocks by Russell. An unusual off game for Sam, but he hit a huge bucket from the key in the last minute. 4 clutch FTs by Tommy all with under a minute. He doesn't wait around at the...

    Best Red Sox Closer: Nominees

    If only Zim had brought him in in the '78 playoff instead of Steamer who promptly gave up a double to Munson and HR to Jackson.

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    And, if it counts, no one leaving has bothered me in a long time more than Orsillo. It definitely counts. I'd say the departure of Ned Martin & Jim Woods in 1978 upset me more than any player leaving. It was so final. In one fell swoop our connection to daily baseball on the radio with these...
