Celtics last night: Resilience, toughness and heart


 What if I told you that Golden State would see Steph score 31 and Klay score 25, not to mention they had their patented third quarter run? You may say they would have control of the series. Well you would be wrong, they took those punches and ended up winning and showing how much tougher they are. Anyone see Draymond Green because Celtics fans were chanting for him but he didn't seem to show up! In the post game mightier than thou Klay Thompson was complaining about the fans, what does that show me the Celtics and their fans have gotten to yet another soft player. Just ask a certain person who wears the same number in Brooklyn.

How about them Celtics! From the jump last night you could tell they were not messing around. Did anyone else notice how the Celtics talent and toughness over powered these Warriors?! The Celtics have taken when they went through vs the Bucks and Heat, and are now applying it against a softer, weaker Warriors team. Let's look at the Jays last night, both did what you would want your studs to do. They both scored, rebounded, made good passes and played hard nosed D! The Wolverine was right there with them showing why he's the heart and soul of this team! 

RWill and GWill kept plenty of possessions alive for the Celtics last night. Along with some pretty stellar D. It seemed like a true TEAM win because each player out there had an impact on winning this game! This is why I love this team, they play hard D and when it's needed very good offense. They did have to many turnovers in the first half for my liking but cleaned it up in the second half! 

Ime Udoka has shown he can hang with and put coach some the NBAs top dogs. I fully expect him to have this group foaming at the mouth to go up 3-1 on Friday night. Celtics fans embrace this team and this run! This team has given me a very special first season on writing. Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

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

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics.
