Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.
Bob Ryan states the obvious for all Celtics fans:
I remember someone telling me near the end of the regular season it would be a good idea to bring Sam Cassell back next year. I'm sure that person has reconsidered.I too hope Cassell gets a ring in Boston but that he's showing it off elsewhere next season... Todd Helton hit another home run today. That's 6 for the season and his 2nd in as many days. For his career he has 309 which is much more than Don Mattingly but still fewer than Mo Vaughn. Todd Helton will be an interesting case for the Hall of Fame (interesting in the sense that it should be interesting to see how the writers react)... Good for you Bob Dole! The former Senator from Kansas goes off on Scott McClellan:
"In my nearly 36 years of public service I've known of a few like you," Dole writes, recounting his years representing Kansas in the House and Senate. "No doubt you will 'clean up' as the liberal anti-Bush press will promote your belated concerns with wild enthusiasm. When the money starts rolling in you should donate it to a worthy cause, something like, 'Biting The Hand That Fed Me.' Another thought is to weasel your way back into the White House if a Democrat is elected. That would provide a good set up for a second book deal in a few years"Dole is spot on. I am amazed though that Democrats are still focused on Bush and not the upcoming election. That's a sure path to defeat in November. Guys like McClellan don't hurt McCain or help Obama but they do energize the Republican base as exhibited by Bob Dole's need to speak out on the subject... The Reds Jay Bruce is giving off a Freddy Lynn as a rookie vibe to me.
