Connelly 10 – Celtics Spot Wiz / Cartoons / Fred Lynn

1. Celtics Playoffs –

* First – I was wrong that the Celtics were done down 0-2 to Chicago

* Started the game 0-9 shooting / out-rebounded 11-0 / down 16-0

* Won by 12 making it a 28-point turnaround

* 19-39 three point shooting – insane – can’t live off that

* Horford looked like an All Star 21 pts / 9 rebounds / 10 assists (please don’t bring the ball up on the break)

* Can’t let Gortat set moving pics the whole series

* Rozier reminds me of Dee Brown

* How bad is Zeller that he can’t get minutes over Amir Johnson

* Next fan in the front row that looks for a high five from a player – capital punishment

* I’m going to estimate that NBA officials get it right 60% of the time

* I loved the Wizard’s coach in Back to the Future

* I’m gonna be saying Washington Bullets all series (speaking of that – update on Chicago shootings below)

2. Red Sox –

* I noticed this at the end of last year and continued into this year – Jackie Bradley isn’t throwing like he used to – and it looks like its traveled around the league because third base coaches are sending runners

* Red Sox game times: 20 of 24 games over three hours / one under 2:30

* Saw a stat I think in the Globe – Panda has missed more games with the Sox than he has played in

3. Bill does it again

* With this year’s draft, Bill got an all pro caliber receiver / a potential All Star pass rusher / a starting tight end and two steals in their third round

* I love that Bill picked twins up in the free agency – Cody Hollister, WR, Arkansas and Jacob Hollister, TE, Wyoming – the league will be freaking out about this and create a rule for next year banning such witchcraft

4. Around the MLB:

* Cleveland has one of the most exciting teams in baseball – average home attendance 20,244

* Bryce Harper is .386 (he won’t hit .300) I would trade him right now to the Yankees for Judge, Sanchez and Betances

* Ryan Zimmerman on pace for 71 HR / 175 RBI

5. Nationals Anthony Rendon Sunday compared to 6/22/1975 Fred Lynn”

Fred Lynn…………5 for 6 / 10 RBI / 3 HR / 16 Total Bases / Triple / 4 Runs

Anthony Rendon – 6 for 6 / 10 RBI / 3 HR / 16 Total bases / Double / 5 Runs

6. Bruins signed into year 2020 -Marchand / Krejci / Bergeron / Backes / Rask = $27mm

7. Amazing Stat – How did Nomar fall so fast – Look at his numbers from 1999 & 2000:

* Average .365

* 148 extra base hits

* 207 runs / 200 RBI

* 89 K’s / 112 BB

8. Old School – Old School boxing match in London Saturday– reason to talk boxing

* 2000 fight Vince Phillips and Ray Olivera – two combatants threw a combined 463 punches in the twelfth round – 2.57 punches a second

9. Just a Little Bit Outside – My top ten cartoons of all time (not including prime time animation):

1. Bug’s Bunny

2. Flintstones

3. Jetson’s

4. Scooby Doo

5. Fat Albert

6. Rugrats

7. Underdog

8. Hong Kong Phooey

9. Speed Racer

10. Johnny Quest / Popeye

10. Randomocity

* Tragic story written in the Hamilton Spector on Stan Jonathan shooting another hunter by mistake

* End of the month is here – what’s the murder pace for Chicago – 573 / total shot 3,123 or NINE a DAY!

* Doc Rivers – over-rated

* I’m predicting that the Big 3 basketball league featuring retired NBA players will destroy the WNBA in ratings

* Woody Wood Pecker is annoying
