Swore I saw him drinking from a Gatorade bottle.
And what's with the head band?

The next time you're in Toronto ...

Woo Hoo!

The long white socks are what push him into the Fred category!

I had a great time a few years ago watching Vince and Antawn, as Tarheels, "lay the smack down" on G.Tech at the Dean Dome.

No freds there. He's sooooo good....

I wish basketball was watchable in Boston.

It must be tough being a basketball fan in Beantown these days. I never though I'd see the Celtics experience such a prolonged period of mediocrity. They always seemed like an organization like the Yankees and the Lakers that would be competetive almost every year. As a life-long Laker fan, I never thought I'd say this, but I miss quality Celtic teams. IMHO, the Laker (Magic) v. Celtic (Bird) matchups of the 80s were the Golden Era of NBA basketball. Jordan was almost certainly a better all-around player than Magic or Bird but he had no nemesis in the league a la Bird/Magic. One of the happiest sporting days in my life was watching Magic hit his "baby-skyhook" at the end of the game to beat the Celtics at the Gah-den and knock the Leprechaun off the rim. I wish you luck in regaining some of the magic that existed in the days of Larry Bird, Kevin McHail, Robert Parrish, Dennis Johnson, and Danny Ainge. However, I wouldn't wish M.L. Carr and his white towel even on the hated Celtics.

Thanks for the compassion, Mike. I can still remember watching the Celtic's championship series in the '80's... and I always loved those Laker games.

For me, watching sports in Boston is really painful. I don't really like baseball, so I can't enjoy the Sox.
Celtics: sucky (as is the NBA in general, except for a few teams)
Bruins: Sucky (I'm rooting for the Avs & Bourque)
Patriots: SUCKY (and there isn't even any good college football)
Revolution: sucky, sucky, sucky.

The benefit? Much more riding time!!
