Ron F, or “Red Auerbach” as he’s known on Twitter, is a lifetime Celtics fan from Solana Beach, California. I came into contact with Ron through Red’s Army and the Twittersphere.

Jackie Mac “Rajon Rondo: All grown up”

Jackie Mac “Rajon Rondo: All grown up”

Jackie MacMullan posted a great piece over at ESPN Boston about how Rajon Rondo is starting to “grow up”. If there’s been one complaint about Rondo from C’s fans over the past few years, it’s been his maturity, or lack thereof at times. Jackie talks about how Rajon has “emerged from his own self-imposed exile”. [...]

Missing Larry, and what he represents, 20 years later

Missing Larry, and what he represents, 20 years later

This still bums me out. I’m so happy Larry Bird doesn’t play today.  Somehow, some way, people would over-analyze him, overreact to him, and over-emphasize things that aren’t important about him. The back injury that ultimately shortened his career?  He hurt it putting up a retaining wall at his Indiana home… when he easily could [...]

Larry Bird still dominating like it’s 1986

Larry Bird has been named the NBA’s Executive of the Year. While Larry Legend probably doesn’t give a crap, this honor puts him in a rare club: The Legend’s trophy shelf was already full. Make room for another. The NBA announced on Wednesday that Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird has been named 2011-2012 Executive of the Year. [...]
