Boston Beatdown: This is Boston Not LA

I had originally planned on starting this with the new year, and using Refrigerator Heaven as a tie in with the winter Classic, but I'm about as consistent a blogger as the Bruins are a hockey team or the Celtics a basketball team.

Anyway welcome to the new Weekly Segment where I use a classic Boston Hardcore song to tell the tale of this week in Boston Sports.  A wonderful blog-gag if, unlike the B's and C's, I execute it consistently.

HOLY SHIT!  Two teams from LA come into Boston, make our boys their bitches and plant that giant A-hole LA flag in our Garden claiming it as their own.  Green Card?  no thanks we are in EAST LA!  (Or hollywood east, anyway.)

Apparently LA really has it's own flag.

And that ugly thing sits in our faces as proof how bad this season of promise is going for both our winter Squads.  Well you know what they say,
You dance the same and dress the same
Won't be long (till) you are the same
You look the same you act the same
There's nothing new and you're to blame
And thus sums up the play of the Bruins and the Celtics.  Let me describe this past month.  I put my stepson to bed at 9, and then turn on whichever team is playing only to watch them lose.  The difference is that the B's had the decency to be down when I turned the game on, while the C's seem incapable of holding any lead, even double digits in the fourth quarter!

Of course both teams have trouble with scoring and of course both teams will be in the middle of trade rumors.  The B's have a better chance of adding fire power at a decent price.  The C's however have an issue, no one worth trading.  KG would be worth trading but he's injured.  RayRay is channeling his best John Stark, and that leaves Pierce and Rondo.  Pierce is a nearly washed up swing man that isn't going to draw people to the stadium, help your team win, attract a big free agent, or last a full season before getting traded again as a 6th man to contender next year.  And Rondo is your franchise right now.  Without him this team goes no where near the playoffs.   Red could pull off that magic trick and trade Pierce and a bench guy for someone good enough to get them over the top, then trade back for Pierce in a year or two as a sixth man.  But Drunken Danny Ainge is not Red.  I say sit KG until he's healthy and if that is not until next year, then we'll win or lose without him.  Better to learn how to win without him now than come playoff time like last year.

For the Bruins it really is just a matter of being willing to do nothing at the trade deadline.  Kovalchuk is out there, but the question is price, and Atlanta being dumb and not letting any potential suitor talk contract extension with him!  A sign trade is worth much more to Atlanta than just a trade.  I know the Bruins need scoring, badly, but like the Celtics injuries have murdered them this year.  I'm not saying a healthy B's team is the best option, but it's better than nuking what's been built for a rental.   I want Ilya, as much as any Bruins fan, and have no problems paying him.  I just don't want to trade away the franchise and pay for him.

You look the same you play the same
Won't be long til you are the same
You hurt the same you lose the same
There's nothing new when scorings the game.

Put some points up on the board guys.
