10 arguments for my Top 10 icons

I received a lot of emails, messages and even an angry phone call about my Top 10 Boston sports icons (athletes, coaches and builders).
There were a few themes involved in the messages I received:
1. Ted Williams should have been higher (1st, 2nd or 3rd instead of 4th).
My answer: I could be inclined to move him [...]

Call for Super Bowl fans

The Daily News is looking for fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals. Are you from Pittsburgh? Did you grow up watching Terry Bradshaw? Have you suffered through many mediocre Cardinals’ seasons. We want to hear from you. E-mail sp…

Yes, a gentlemen’s agreement

Stephon Marbury is kinda looney, eh? Click here to find out more.
Irregahdless, it would be interesting to see him in a Celtics uniform.
In theory.
UPDATE: Here’s the Celtics’ rebuttal.

Shiny Happy People

Us reporters are really pleasant folks. After the final buzzer sounded yesterday, one Dallas-based reporter turned to another in the TD Banknorth Garden press room.
“Let’s go autopsy the corpse.”
Anyway, here’s my take from the blowout. It’s about Rajon Rondo.
So here goes:
BOSTON — So what if his jump shot is as soft as a porcupine. Rajon [...]

HIT IT EDDIE!!!

The headline is courtesy of the guy sitting behind me, who apparently is the treasurer of the Eddie House Fan Club.
Mr. Ed has eight points.
Somehow, the Celtics have improved their torrid shooting this quarter. It was 66.7 percent in the first, as of 4:04 in the second, it’s 68.4. They’re 9 of 11 from 3-point [...]

It’s a snoozer so far

With 6:50 remaining in the second quarter, the Celtics are up 56-31. ZZZZZZZZ……….
Their jumpers are falling. And hey, Nomar Garciaparra’s in the house! Stop the presses!
Pathetic showing by the Mavs so far. They look ready for bed.

NBA Jam style

The Celtics are ON FIRE here at the Garden. They shot 66.7 percent in the first quarter and built a 38-23 lead.
Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen each scored 11 points.
Once again, Rajon Rondo is quietly controlling the tempo. Time and again in the first, he hit open shooters, who haven’t missed much. Rondo also has [...]

Bing bang boom

Anyone who says this guy is losing it as a player is crazy.
Kevin Garnett just made a layup, stole an inbound pass from Dirk Nowitski, unsuccessfully tried to dunk, got fouled by Nowitski, made the first free throw, missed the second, Rajon Rondo grabbed the rebound, who dished back to Garnett, who then drained [...]

Even Steven so far

Neither team has been able to separate itself so far.
Paul Pierce has five points (2 for 3) and Boston’s up 13-12 with 5:41 remaining.

Celtics-Mavericks, 1 p.m. tip off

“Man it’s so cold.”
Mavs point guard Jose Barea — who starred at Northeastern — isn’t exactly liking the winter weather.
Or maybe he’s just not that excited for what he’s about to face. The once-struggling C’s are on a seven-game win streak.
“They’re certainly back now,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said.
Not much going on here. [...]
