The Boston Celtics have two gears: Old and still fucking old but now it’s time to win so we have to do that Old School Chevy thing and find a way.
You can guess which they drove in last night.
For Games 1 and 2, the Celtics didn’t switch into Old School Chevy gear until the fourth quarter. The Sixers were lucky enough to escape Beantown with one victory despite outplaying the Celts for the better part of two games. Yesterday, though, the Celtics kicked it into gear in the second quarter and never looked back. Garnett was in Anything is Possible mode, putting up 27 points and 13 rebounds.
You can watch the full highlights here… if you want to do that to yourself.
Fat Carlos Ruiz – or, as some readers have suggested, Endearingly Pudgy Carlos Ruiz – hit a solo home run to give the Phillies a 3-2 lead in the eighth. They never looked back. Hector Luna tacked on a grand slam in the ninth and the Phillies went on to win 9-2.
The Daily News’ cover is good, though I’m not sure a home run coming around 10:45 p.m. can be considered late night. Maybe for scriptuals and layout folks needing to finalize an issue it is…

It’s an every man’s quality start, not the likes of what we see from Roy, Cliff and Cole, but still impressive from KK.
Did a fielding gaff cost the Phillies a run?

Had dinner in Sampan on 13th and Walnut tonight for my bday. Was sitting at the bar afterwards when Evan walked in with his girl,his two boys and some old bald whote man. Not sure who he is. Nobpics cause its kind off empty and ill feel weird but they seem to be loving life even if beeker played like an asshole and soxers got smoked.
Can’t believe I’m about to do this: Do you remember that scene in Fever Pitch where Jimmy Fallon was crushed to learn that Johnny Damon and Jason Varitek seemingly were enjoying themselves at a nice restaurant after losing Game 3 of the ALCS in horrific fashion to the Yankees? Yeah, that.
A Reminder Why Sixers Super Fan Alan Horowitz Has Such Good Seats
Yankee Candle just released four new scents specifically for men– Man Town— which sounds positively fruity… First Down… Riding Mower— not a sex position… and 2×4— which, you guessed it, smells like saw dust.
I need one of these for the new house.
Awkward Tweet of the Day
Many Eagles were in attendance at last night’s Sixers game. New Eagle Mychal Kendricks seemingly wasn’t invited. Check out this Tweet he sent to Adam Aron… an hour after the game started:
Poor guy. An hour later?
