Some stream of consciousness ramblings

Walking home from work last night (or early this morning by normal person hours) I saw people around Boston Common setting up for the "Walk for Hunger" today.  I'd totally forgotten that that was a thing.  I did it once about 20 years ago, and had a ton of fun.  Maybe next year...

I just wrote a quick injury update for Celts/Hawks Game 4 tonight over at  If you don't feel like clicking the link, Ray Allen's a go, so is Josh Smith for Atlanta, and Avery Bradley is still up in the air.

By no means am I giving up on the Red Sox, but it's definitely not a good sign that both yesterday afternoon and today instead of watching them I've had the TV on random other first round NBA playoff games.

Speaking of that, as I watch Chicago vs Philly right now, I have no idea which team I'd rather see Boston get the chance to play next round.  Even though they gave the Celtics fits this year, I guess I'm slightly leaning towards the Sixers (and home court advantage) over a well coached Bulls squad (minus MVP Derrick Rose and obnoxious starting Center Joakim Noah) that still plays great team defense.

While I'm on the Celtics, here's the latest great feat from Rajon Rondo:

At this rate I may have to add a new post category called "photos of my television displaying ridiculous Rajon Rondo triple double stats on espn."  I'm up to four I think.  Here's one, two, and three.

And finally, when I checked facebook this morning a friend of mine had posted the video Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye.  It is a kind of cool song, but it's a little freaky to me that it has some sort of weird facebook mind control thing going on.  In the last couple months I've probably noticed ten people put it in their status', which is easily more than all other music videos I've seen posted put together.  Creepy.

3:42 PM UPDATE: The Sixers just won to take a 3-1 series lead, and confetti dropped from the rafters in Philadelphia.  Atlanta pulled that same crap when they beat Boston back in game one.  What a joke.  Somebody should tell whoever makes these decisions that holding a celebration for winning one first round playoff game is basically admitting that your team has sucked for a long long time.
