Jayson Tatum matches the royal presence at TD Garden

 In last night's 134-121 win over the Miami Heat, royalty was in the stands and on the court. Prince William and the Duchess of Wales were in attendence and they were treated to a regal performance by Jayson Tatum.

Tatum looked like The King of the Court, pouring in a team-high 49 points along with 11 rebounds. He was 15-of-25 from the field, 8-of-12 from deep, and 11-of-12 on freebies. While William and Kate maintained decorum in their seats, Jayson was out there looking damn majestic. He owned the court. Evertything worked.

There was more. Looking dignified and noble, as always, Satch Sanders, was right where he belonged - next to the Prince. Is Satch really 84 years old? He looks great.

On another matter, Coach Joe Mazzulla, other wise known as the "TIMEOUT MISER", actually called one after a 19-5 run by Miami in the first period. Known for hoarding timeouts like Danny Ainge used to clutch his draft picks, his stoppage of the Heat's rampage was timely.

Yet another gem. Malcolm Brogdon uses his smarts on the court as well as anyone. He racked up 21 points and six boards, hitting 7-of-10 from the field and 5-of-7 on treys. Watch his eyes. His intensity is unmatched.

And lastly, seeing the clip of Rob Williams participating in a 5-on-5 scrimmage was uplifting. This was a game not to be missed. 


  1. You beat me to writing about Tatum! Love this dude! Special year brewing!

  2. I initially wondered if the gentleman BEHIND the "royals" was Satch, but wasn't sure until he moved up one row and my aging eyes got a clearer look ... talk about a "Class Act"! (It's so fitting that he coached at Harvard, huh?)

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

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

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
