  1. Anyone know why D&C and others are interviewing a Vancouver blogger and some fans who are ripping of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia?

    And since when do they call Nathan Horton, "Horty"? They haven't all year and now that he's hurt, he's "Horty"?


  2. Horribly blatant homerism here, but I think that '86 Celtics team was, for one season, the best the NBA has ever seen. They were an absolute wrecking machine. The only bittersweet part of that season was not getting a chance to crush the Lakers in the Finals (LA lost to Houston in the West Finals, but the C's had creamed them twice during the regular season, once in LA without an injured Kevin McHale). Of course, on June 19, just 11 days after the title was won, the beginning of the end occurred when Len Bias partied himself to death. But man, it was GREAT to be a Celtics fan for most of that month of June 1986.


    1. Totally agree Tony, beating LA is what made both the '84 and '08 championships so much more satisfying. The way I felt the moment after the C's drafted Bias was similar to how I felt just before SB XLII – as a fan, I didn't just want the victories and championships but also the history and dynasties that lied ahead, or so I thought.


      1. Jason, I'll always believe that the Lakers sort of knew they had no shot to beat the C's that year, and as a result didn't bust their butts as hard as they normally would against the Rockets in the West Finals. Of course, Sampson and Akeen simply dominated LA inside in that series, too, and the Lakers looked like "yesterday's" team when the series ended. That Sampson never played another fully healthy season in the NBA after 1986 denied us the chance to see if Houston could have continued to dominate the West, or if LA would have been able to overcome them in the years that followed. That's an underreported fact about LA's back-to-back titles that followed the C's title in 1986: the '86 Rockets were never able to put the same team on the court again and therefore never challenged the Lakers again during that decade.


  3. The radio is polluted today with people wanting to literally maimed and kill Canuck players. And hockey fans wonder why they're sport is considered 4th string.


    1. we get it "Classless" you don't like hockey. What do you want? a medal for it or something? jeeze, talk about beating a dead horse. Go watch the Red Sox, enjoy yourself.


      1. Can we both get medals? I want one that's not too flashy but says to the world "Look! He's wearing a medal"


  4. It was Felger who intimated that Thornton's running of Burrows in Thornton's first shift that led to Rome hitting Horton. That was what Haggerty was referring to in his column.
    Just Felger's way of taking a shot at Julian even though Felger grudingly gave credit to Julian for playing Thornton.


    1. Gary, Felger actually got his information from Don Cherry's, Coaches Corner on the CBC. I watched the segment a couple of nights ago and put it on a post yesterday. Felger also mentioned it on his show as well. It wasn't just the running of Burrows by Thornton, it was also Thornton chirping at Rome at the Vancouver bench just before Rome's shift which he took out Horton.
