Credit Where Credit Is Due

The Celtics did what would normally have been enough to win that game last night.  But let's give credit where credit is due: Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom didn't let that happen. "Gasoft" smartly took it right to KG for most of the night… taking advantage of his foul trouble.  And as good as KG... [More]

“…Keep That Mother#*%!@$ Rocking”

The Boston Celtics did not finish off the Los Angeles Lakers in 5 games like I hoped.  Yes, they squandered some opportunities… but they were really trying to win that game… and they didn't.  The Lakers Kobe Bryant came out ridiculously hot… and the C's could never recover.  I'm OK with that.  I would have...

Not Yet

Chalk this loss up to another slow start. After falling behind by 19 points in the 1st quarter, the Celtics rallied but never fully made it out of that hole. The play of the game came with :40 seconds left in the 4th, the Celtics down 2 with the ball – Kobe Bryant managed to... [More]

Mano e Mano

This game has turned into Kobe Bryant vs Paul Pierce. Kobe (15 pts) carried the play in the 1st quarter as the Lakers surged to an 18 point lead. The Truth (21 pts) dominated the 2nd as the C's sliced the lead to just 3 at the half. ... [More]

Perkins Out

The Celtics will not have Kendrick Perkins for tonight's game against the Lakers. Perk told the Globe's Gary Dzen that he's hurting pretty bad. "If somebody bumped me right now, there's a lot of pain in there," said Perkins. "So I knew I couldn't go tonight. I felt that yesterday. But hopefully we can close... [More]

Let’s Get Jemele Hill Fired

For those who don't know, Jemele Hill is a horrible sports journalist. I once watched her host Jim Rome's show and thought to myself, "A high-school kid could do a better job." She's attacking the Celtics in her latest ESPN Page 2 column…but here's a line sure to piss some people off: Rooting for the Celtics is... [More]

Vegas Must Be Crazy… Or Are They?

For the third straight game, the Lakers are favored in Los Angeles.  They didn't cover in game 3.  We know what happened in Game 4.  Now Vegas has the Lakers -7 in game 5.  I don't think the Lakers win by 7.  I don't even think the Lakers are going to win…. which makes this a great line for Vegas.  They'll...

Who is Hotter, Part II

For all the success Red's Army has had over the past year, I'm embarassed to reveal that our most popular post continues to be - Who is Hotter. Yes, I posted pictures of Brandi Garnett, Julie Landrum (Paul Pierce's girl) and Shannon Williams (Ray's chick) and asked you for feedback. Now we're taking this to the next... [More]

It Ends Tonight

This is it.  A win… and one of the most magical season in Celtics history will come to an end.  Paul, Ray and KG will get that ring they've been desperate for their whole careers.  They've all been so unselfish with the ball all year, I wonder if the one time they'll fight over one... [More]

Viewing Party?

I'm heading into the city to watch tomorrow night's game… with obvious hopes of hugging and crying in front of strangers. Anyone else want in?  I'm thinking a place on Canal st.  Maybe Boston Beer Works?  Ideas will be heard in the comments section.... [More]
