Connelly 10 – Sunday’s Red Sox Game Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Connelly 10 – Sunday’s Red Sox Game Cruel and Unusual Punishment

1. Celtics Playoffs –

* Turnover by Isiah with a chance to clinch the series was 47% of Buckner

* Doesn’t it fall on Brad Stevens to always compel the refs to review the time left on the clock when you are down to a last second shot?

* An overweight Greg Kite? Marcus Smart is shooting 36% – three pointers / 33% – two pointers / 50% from free throw line

* Boston favored by 4 – ugh that’s close – Vegas knows something

* Horford’s bank shot (he was fouled) the other night was looking like Don Nelson’s off the back of the rim in 1969

2. Red Sox

* That was a long way from the Mother’s Day comeback years ago

* Third basemen for Red Sox have 13 errors already this year – on a pace for over fifty

* I know we are overrun by pink hats at the games – but surprises me the crowd isn’t on their feet when Chris Sale gets two strikes

* Since being signed to monster contracts – Sandoval and Hanley have played 426 games out of 972 or 44% – not quite coal miners

* Robbie “Kid Rock” Ross better be lights out if wants to wear that haircut

3. Gray, cold, drawn out, boring, bad baseball:

* MLB wants to know why blacks aren’t playing baseball – they need to ask themselves another question – why doesn’t 90% of kids want to play baseball – MLB got their answer Sunday at Fenway

* $50 parking / $100 tickets / $13 beers / $125 souvenir shirts (too big to fail – that’s what Bank of New England said)

* 16,320 seconds to play (4:32)

* 370 pitches or one every 44 seconds (count 44 seconds and see how long that is)

* 86 batters / 30 strikeouts and walks / Meaning a ball was put into play every 4.9 minutes

* Is it a war crime for press members to have to sit through that game and then a John Farrell press conference

4. Big Shots against Celtics

* John Wall three pointer to force game seven

* Magic’s baby hook in 1987 Game 4 in the Garden

* Kareem’s skyhook in 1974 in the Garden to win Game 6

* Patrick Ewing’s three pointer (only of the year) in Game 5 of the 1990 playoffs – at the Garden

5. Around the MLB

* Matt Harvey the most overrated player in sports – 31-31 record – doesn’t even deserve a nickname – never mind Dark Knight

* From MLB Network – when the Dodgers score 4 runs for Kershaw he is 89-0

* Former Red Sox, and now Brewer Travis Shaw, is on pace for 34 HR / 128 RBI

* Aren’t Giancarlo Stanton and Blake Griffin the same player

6. Value of playing Colorado – the Rockie’s franchise has the highest batting average of any franchise since their origin .275 / Red Sox are 4th at .267

7. Amazing Stat – Tyree, Dent, Klima after breaking our hearts:

* Dent 17 home runs 2098 at bats (one every 123 at bats)

* David Tyree receptions after freak Super Bowl catch – Zero

* Petr Klima had 159 after scoring in triple overtime in the Garden – 1990

8. Old School – Bruins history in the Playoffs:

Series record – 57-64

Record in Game 7’s – 13-12

9. Just a Little Bit Outside – Infamous Mothers for Mothers’ Day:

* Ray Allen’s mother got more face time on the TV than her son

* Irving Fryar and his mother arrested on fraud

* Lebron’s mother with Delonte West

* Lebron’s mother arrested for DUI and kicked the police car window out

* Amare Stoudemire’s mother arrested DUI

* Lance Armstrong’s mother was part of the crime (I presume)

* University of Tennessee football star’s Jalen Hurd’s mother was arrested at his game for disturbance and assaulting a police officer

* Demaryius Thomas mother in prison for drug trafficking – pardoned by President Obama

* In an argument – Dez Bryant allegedly grabbed his mother by shirt and hair and pushing her

10. Randomocity

* Saw a crazy stat the other day – something like – if your child gets five sunburns they have an 80% chance of getting skin cancer

* In fifteen days in May – there has been rain in 10

* What happened to bumper pool?

* Whether you agree or not – to tear down Confederate war monuments is dangerous – like you are trying to rewrite history – the history books are clear on the cause and outcome

* NHL home team record in the history of playoff games that go to overtime 388-379

* Home come I didn’t hear this – The mother of Jae Crowder’s child got arrested at the Celtics -Clippers game this year for spitting on someone?

* If Brady gets hurt this year – the hater’s will have fun with his video tempting fate regards to the Madden cover
