    I think it was 6 years ago, today, that the gut kick of Brad to Boston was announced. Onward and upward.

    You're right. I had family coming into town, they got to my place and I was like, hey, yeah I got bigger problems to deal with right now.

    That was rough.

    This past Sunday afternoon ESPNU was showing a bunch of old college games in a series called "before they were pros". Each game involved college teams from long ago that had current NBA free agents that we're going sign mega contracts.

    One game was Texas-Texas Tech when Kevin Durant played at UT. Another was BU-Duke from the Fall/Winter 2010 that was in-between the first & second national championship games (Kyrie Irving was a freshman at Duke & the NBA free agent).

    As I watched Nored, Shelvin, Howard, Moose and the guys, I could only think about how hard Brad's teams hustled and worked and busted ass on the court to simply out play the competition. It made me sad thinking about how that seemed to be missing a lot last season.

    I was at that BU-Duke regular season game. Pretty sure that was the game where Kyrie got hurt. Opinions of how his pro career has gone aside, you could tell how special he was even as a freshman.

    I also remember being especially pissed at the refs that game. Recall Shelvin getting manhandled and getting no calls.

    I'm sure I watched it originally but I didn't remember the game. Oh man, Mack was double and triple teamed every time he touched the ball. His outlet was Hahn (who missed a lot of open threes or we probably could have won). BU still led for most of the first half.

    Jay Bilas kept talking on the broadcast about how special freshman Khyle Marshall was going to be for BU and we had never had a player of his athletic ability before.

    The Crow’s Nest, above BU’s first half basket is great. Bird’s eye view and a slightly cheaper option.

    The only ****ty thing is you’re right behind the students that don’t cheer and sit...

    I can only hope my neighbors did not heed the warnings to not attempt to shoot off fireworks from an orifice.

    Not going to lie, the new seats in the 100 level are much easier on the tush than the old school wood benches in the 2nd level & up.

    The "nest" now has pads, plus an arm rest.
