As Summer Turns into Fall...

Greetings Celtics fans! As we see summer heading towards fall it's a reminder that the Celtics will be back on TV very soon. I think my expectations are tailored right now because last season I was Banner 18 or bust. Unfortunately a 3-0 deficit to Miami and a turned JT ankle made last year a total bust for me. No one remembers the team down 3-0 and loses game seven. Yet I think I will... Derrick White made a play that should have put him in that Gerald Henderson category of I'll never forget that play. 

From my vantage point, I expect career years from JB and JT. I also expect JTs overall game to improve on so many levels. This young man talks about the Mount Rushmore of Celtics players and I fully believe he wants to be one of them. That all starts by winning a ring and then winning a few more. Overall we all know how well JT is on offense yet I feel he can bring it to a whole new level. Defensively I expect the same. The kid is built to be great. Now without Marcus Smart I feel JB and JT will imprint themselves on this group. No more alpha male from a tweener type player. I love Marcus but his personality was a very large and his game was not. 

Side note once again Leflop is building a super team this time for the Olympics... I remember a kid from North Carolina who led his 84 team to Gold. He played with who was on the roster. They DOMINATED! Part of me will want the USA to fail if he's on that Olympic roster. On another NBA front, what we are seeing about what Kevin Porter did to his girlfriend is disgusting... the NBA needs to come down very hard on him for this awful behavior. He as anyone deserves forgiveness, but he must be punished. 

One more thought for now... How blessed and lucky were New England fans to have Tom Brady. That man was the ultra competitor. The ultimate Winner. He gave us 20 years of freaking greatness and then three more in Tampa. Tom is one of the greatest athletes I've ever seen play a sport. Imagine that getting to see Tom Brady Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and countless other greats in my lifetime. What a life! 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
