Trivia: Celtics superfan, Donnie Wahlberg was in the movie, The Sixth Sense

A few of the Celtics players are changing their hairstyles this season this season, and that may make them harder to recognize on the court. Rookie Carsen Edwards would be a prime example.


Actors often have to change their appearance for various movie roles, and I broached a question to my followers as to the identity of the actor that portrayed the guy that shot Bruce Willis' character in the movie, The Sixth Sense. It is a bit of trivia, but the actor is none other than Celtics superfan, Donnie Wahlberg.






@Har2D2 got it right via Twitter. It was our very own superfan, Donnie Wahlberg, playing the shooter of Willis' character in the beginning of the movie, The Sixth Sense. Carsen Edwards' appearance changed dramatically with his new haircut, and Donnie definitely looked un-Donnie-like in the film.


Wahlberg is excited about this season's Celtics crew, and here is what he had to say about the players and the season (per CelticsWire's Justin Quinn):

The former New Kid on the Block (Wahlberg) was also pumped to see the team’s new editions (pun intended), gushing over Boston’s seven-player rookie class. “To see Carson [Edwards] out there and Grant [Williams] bang — and I mean, these young guys are making an impact already,” he said, adding:

I think this team’s gonna win everybody in Boston over, and around the league really soon. The young guys are going to surprise a lot of people, and there’s a flow — we’ve got a flow between Jaylen [Brown], Kemba [Walker], [Gordon] Hayward and [Jayson] Tatum.

The Boston native explained how even on nights like that one, when key offensive contributors struggled, the team’s buy-in on defense — including Walker’s — kept the team in the game in ways that reminded him of the 2017 Celtics.

Every team needs a superfan, and Donnie Wahlberg is ours. We love seeing him him on the sidelines, cheering his team on. Donnie is correct - "We've got a great flow" was his analysis, and I think all of us can see that.

The Elm Street Nightmare

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.)  Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.) He  resided on Elm Street  in Townsend, Massachusetts 2.) He  kidnapped a woman  at gunpoint on  Elm Street, Pepperell , Massachusetts 3.) He was arrested and transported to Massachusetts State Police Barracks on Elm Street in Concord . 3.) He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. When evil and cleverness reside in the same mind, the stage is often set for true horror. Such was the case with triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante . As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and his two daughters as an unseen

Anna Horford let's fan know Al's value to the Boston Celtics

 Some fans of pro basketball just take the contrary view just to be...well - contrary , with no solid basis for their stand. Such was the case when when Al Horford's sister, Anna Horford, overheard an argument centered around the value of her brother to the Boston Celtics . No true Boston fan doesn’t love Al!! — Stephanie (@smars319) November 23, 2021 Al's value. Let's take a look at his team stats : Scoring: 4th at 13.1 PPG Rebounds: 2nd at 8.7 RPG Assists: 3rd at 3.5 APG Steals: 4th at 0.9 SPG Blocks: 1st at 1.9 BPG (tied with Giannis for 6th place in the NBA) Minutes: 6th at 29.4 MPG   One more thing about the blocks. That is new for Al . He is the only player over 29 years of age in the top-6 in blocks. Horford is 35. This gem-of-an-individual needs to prove nothing to Celtics fans, but I bet he needs to prove something to himself. Have I ever mentioned I love this guy?

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len
