As for what is actually on today…Celtics Game 2 against the Pistons. 8:00 on FSNE locally, TNT nationally. Red Sox vs A’s at 10:00 on NESN locally, on ESPN2 Nationally.

In a GREAT Article, Bob Ryan, (I think he’s been fully awakened) all but says that he retracts the infamous “Antoine Walker is a punk” statement. I was stunned to read this article. This harkened me back to the glory days of the Globe’s sports section. The Bird/McHale and Walker/Pierce comparisions are enough to give you a few goosebumps.
