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

    The C’s can’t live off the 3-point shooting? Don’t forget the Warriors did exactly that 2 years ago!

    Agree with most of your Top 10 cartoons but can’t believe you left off one of the best cartoons ever. Roadrunner!!! Would be in my Top 2. If he catches you, you’re through!
