Things that suck: the NBA Eastern Conference

W L %
Boston5 8 .385
New Jersey 5 8 .385
Philadelphia 5 8 .385
New York 5 10 .333
Toronto 4 9 .308

Look at these pathetic records. Seriously, if the Celtics send me a newsletter touting their current "forst" (as in, worst + first) place standing in the Eastern Conference, I'm not going to go to a single game this year. Oh wait a second, I wasn't going to, anyway.

Bring back the parquet floor. Bring back seats that gave you lines in your hips from digging into you for 4 quarters. Get rid of those stupid dancers. Why couldn't they have done a Camden Yards-type redesign, keeping the old school style in fashion?

This team is fun to watch - in spurts. They need two more pieces - a dominant center (please trade Paul Pierce for a #1 pick, and land us Greg Oden, Danny), and a coach who knows how to execute a run & fun offense, like the Phoenix teams of the early 90s.

Things that suck: Robert Gariedy of Haverhill

Kerry Healey for the White House!” proclaimed Robert Gariedy of Haverhill as he pumped his fist in the air. “She’ll make a great president one day. Stop Hillary (Clinton) in ’08!”

Congratulations, Deval Patrick! You stomped that loser!
