It’s better, already

A few days ago I wrote that it couldn’t get much better, sports wise, that it is right now here in Boston (at least until June when the weather is warmer and the Celtics might be winning a World Championship).

I was wrong. It is already better.

1st off, is there a better sports weekend anywhere in the world than this one right now, and I’ve got to start with the Bruins putting on the best hockey game in these parts in over 10 years (maybe even 20). Saturday night’s 3rd period was was the most exciting 20 minutesof hockey with the B’s outscoring the Canafiens 4-2 to win 5-4. It just may have been the most exciting moment/game in the young 13 year history of the new Garden (Celts had some pretty exciting games in their run to the Eastern Conference finals 6 years ago, but none that had the garden this loud).

The Celtics win their 1st playoff game-is there any reason to think they won’t win their next 5 games, at least.

The Red Sox have the best record in the American League and are presently running all over (8-0 in the 6th) the woeful Texas Rangers on another beautiful Patriots Day.

And oh yah, the Marathon, the 112th running of 26.2 miles by over 25,000 crazies, I mean athletes. This years race was won by Robert Cheruiyot( of course I had to look up how to spell his name even tho this is his 4th win- Hey I’m paid to pronounce, not is obvious). Dire Tune was the women’s winner in the closest finish in the history of the race beating Russia’s Alevtina Biktimiova by 2 seconds to take $150,000. home to Ethiopia. 1st place finishers aside- this really is a race for the other 25,000 runners and the million people out on the course enjoying a sunny spring day.

What a day for everyone here in New England! …except that is for Rangers left fielder Milton (notoriously short tempered bad boy) Bradley who just lost a David Ortiz ball in the sun and fell down backwards with the ball landing right next to his head on the track for an rbi double. Tough Break.
