Success good morning
The Celtics beat the Timberwolves on Wednesday night, 115-102. Gordon Hayward led the team with 35 points. Kevin McHale on LeBron James’s ‘greatest of all-time’ comments: Celtics legend Kevin McHale recently spoke about LeBron James calling himself the “greatest player of all-time” during an ESPN special. “We all sit at this table all the time and sing his praises, I think LeBron is a great player. I just think that’s disrespectful honestly to Bill Russell,” McHale explained. He went on to list other past greats. “Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan,” McHale added. “There are just so many. Two of my good…Larry and Magic, just led teams and turned the league around. You don’t need to say that about yourself. Let other people say that for you. I mean I was kind of surprised because I’d read about it, but that’s the first time I’d actually heard him say it, ‘Made me the GOAT.’ … [Read more...] about Morning sports update: What Kevin McHale had to say about LeBron James calling himself the ‘GOAT’
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Dave Barry December 30, 2018 We can summarize 2018 in two words: It boofed. We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper. This is a cable-TV reality show featuring high-definition slo-mo close-up videos of a California dermatologist performing seriously disgusting procedures on individuals with zits the size of mature cantaloupes. You might ask, … [Read more...] about Dave Barry’s year in review: Good riddance to 2018!

Another year, another excuse to haul out the Duck Boats. Another reason for Them out there in the Great Beyond to loathe Us.No sports community has had a more bountiful 21st century experience than the good people of Boston and New England (excluding those Yankee fans in Connecticut). The eminently lovable 2018 Men of Cora have provided us with the 11th championship of the new century in the 21st Boston/New England trip to a league Finals (yes, I’m including the five Revolution losses in the MLS Cup). For this, we are not so much envied as we are despised, mostly because America has become very much sick of the Red Sox, and, most of all, the Patriots. You might be surprised to learn there is some residual resentment of the Celtics, as well.But what are we on the sidelines supposed to do? We can’t help … [Read more...] about Boston sports fans have never had it so good
By Richard Wagoner | [email protected] | PUBLISHED: December 18, 2018 at 10:38 am | UPDATED: December 18, 2018 at 1:13 pm Yes, that was Leo Terrell filling in for Doug McIntyre this week on KABC (790 AM) mornings. Well, filling in is perhaps not quite the right word as McIntyre announced early last week that he was retiring from the station he called home for 22 years. “I’m ready,” he told me. “I’ve actually been thinking about it for a while now,” he explained. “There are so many things I would like to do, including the completion of a novel I’ve been working on for about 20 years. It’s been on hold while I work out details in my mind for the storyline. If I don’t finish it now I may never do it.” McIntyre’s shoes will be hard to fill at the station. While KABC itself long ago gave the ratings crown away to KFI (640 AM), McIntyre has remained not only one of the most popular personalities on the station, … [Read more...] about KABC’s Doug McIntyre talks about leaving his morning radio show
