If you didn’t hear, the Colts won the Super Bowl last night. Let the fawning begin. Other than a crazy first quarter, the game wasn’t much to watch, and it even seems to be the consensus out there is that the commercials weren’t up to par this year either. I don’t remember a single one as being great.

I’m not interested in reading any of the stories about the game, even ones on Adam Vinatieri. I’m probably just a bitter Patriots fan because my team wasn’t there, but it was a depressing Super Bowl Sunday all around.

If you missed it, Scott Benson had quite a take yesterday on the whole Ted Johnson story and how it is being covered and the eagerness on the part of some to place the blame all at the feet of one person.


Paul Pierce feels that the Celtics should trade their top pick rather than trying to get lucky in the lottery. He’s not against getting a top notch talent in Oden or Durant, but feels that it is no sure thing. Steve Bulpett has the thoughts from the captain in today’s Herald. Peter May has Pierce bumping up his activity level for a return to action this week, it won’t be tomorrow or Wednesday, but Pierce could return on Friday against the Nets. Bulpett’s notebook has more on the timing of the Captain’s return to action.

Rob Bradford has an interesting article on new Sox outfielder J.D. Drew and how his is looking to the Maker’s Diet to transform his health this season. He also looks at what really held up the Drew deal from getting done. Jeff Horrigan’s Red Sox notebook says that the club and Wily Mo Pena are far apart in their arbitration case and could go to a hearing. He also notes that the equipment truck leaves a week from today…let the countdown begin. Despite my despair over the Patriots season ending, I don’t think I’m quite ready for the Red Sox and Matsuzaka mania to begin just yet…

Stephen Harris thinks that the Bruins efforts in the last two games could indicate a change in fortune for the club, perhaps even a start of a playoff run. Fluto Shinzawa has a different take on the last game, which was marked by more head-scratching penalties. In his weekly Rink Rap, Mick Colageo says rookie GM Peter Chiarelli isn’t immune from mistakes.
