We skipped the light fandango. Turned cartwheels ‘cross the floor. I was feeling kind of seasick. The crowd called out for more. -Procol Harum
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Ok, here we go! How ’bout them Celtics? Them playoff clinching Boston Celtics. The Celtics are picking up the pieces and putting together their playoff run. Leading the charge is Rajon Rondo. More gas in his tank than Exxondo. Go to sleep, and he’s gondo. Just like another guy I know. Just like Nate Tiny Archibald. Last night, Rajon Rondo had a triple double. Triple trouble. That triple double included 15 assists. Yowza! For those of you keeping score at home, that was his 6th game this season with 15 or more assists. For those of you keeping score at home, that ties the Celtics record for most 15-assist games in one season, set by Nate Archibald in the 1979-80 season. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s pretty, pretty, pretty good.
During this off-season there was much ballyhoo over whether or not the Celtics’ brass would extend Rondo’s contract. That was answered with a five year deal worth at least $55 million. A five year deal worth every penny. Where once the point guard position was the question mark, it is now the exclamtion point. Exclamation point guard that it. Swimmin’ pools, movie stars. Y’all come back now, y’hear?
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
