I can't write about deflategate today. I just can't. I'm annoyed with myself for even using that stupid word that isn't even a word. Maybe I'll feel differently in the days ahead, but who knows. Instead, how about this great coincidence involving Boston's two active major pro sports teams:
Sort of cool the Red Sox and Celtics will both be invading Atlanta at the same time.— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) April 25, 2016
The Sox take the field tonight vs. the Braves at Turner Field at 7:10 pm. They'll be back at it tomorrow at the same time. Eighty minutes later, the Celtics will tip off against the Hawks at Philips Arena at 8:30 pm.
In my head, the two teams shared a flight down there today with David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia sitting across from Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder telling them about what it means to represent the city of Boston in the playoffs.
