Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett “Welcome Back To Boston” Tribute Videos

A.B. Ah, the perils of being a Boston homer; even as an admitted Celtics band-wagoner (sorry but I can’t watch the NBA unless the Celts are good), these tribute videos had me choked up, especially the one for Pierce. Maybe it was reliving all the great moments of #34′s Green Team career or maybe I’m just a sucker for A Few Good Men references and Diddy music montages. Plus...

NFL Instragram: Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady Career Weapons

A.B. The NFL is smart to create as much buzz around the Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning AFC Championship rubber game match-up as possible. Manning, especially if he wins the Super Bowl this year, could retire after the season. Brady is 36 years old and although he wants to play into his 50′s, there’s a good chance that’s not happening.
