  • What’s Your Excuse?

    Good morning Boston fans. Get your excuses lined up early. May the better team, not Boston, win. Cheers.

    I honestly don’t see the Celtics winning this game. I think they will lead big in the beginning but then run out of gas and lose it due to lack of rest for the starters.
    It’s going to be painful watching how the C’s play through these injuries. Can’t wait for Delonte to get back into the lineup.

  • Hahaha! What’s Miami’s excuse?! You’re boy choked. They can’t beat Boston. Cheers.
