Various sources are reporting that big cry baby disgruntled Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin has fired super-agent Drew Rosenhaus. Rosenhaus released a statement essentially confirming his termination via Twitter, as super-agents are wont to do. Just last month Karlos Dansby also fired his long term agent, Kirk Wood; however, unlike Boldin, Dansby has a very good shot of getting his contract redone. What can we learn recklessly speculate from these seemingly unrelated firings? Rod Graves is a remorseless killer of agents (although in light of John Clayton putting the Cards 16th in ESPN’S May Power Rankings, perhaps killer clown is more like it). (more…)

Celtics 92 Magicians 88: Boston managed to rally from a 14 point 4th quarter deficit to win the crucial Game 5 of this Eastern Conference 2nd Round series. Naturally the catalyst was Ray Allen Paul Pierce Rajon Rondo Big Baby Davis Danny Ainge Red Auerbach Air Bud Stephon freaking Marbury?!? The exhumed corpse of Starbury scored 12 points, all in the 4th quarter to lead the Celtics by the Magic. I’m trying to think of a list of players who were more likely to take over a 2nd Round playoff game than Starbury. I came up with Stacey Augmon and Dolph Schayes. That’s right, I would have been less surprised had 80-year old Dolph Schayes came back and taken over Game 5 than I was when Starbury did. Orlando has now gone from up 2-1 in the series to down 3-2 by choking away a pair of games. I’d imagine that they will be reeling in Game 6 and would be surprised if they can find a way to keep this series alive.
Editors Note: I pulled the following from the January 15, 1985 issue of the Beacon Town Gazette:
BEACON TOWN, NEBRASKA – Prior to this point in the season, senior point guard Scott Howard hasn’t shown a great deal of ability. Coming into tonight’s game against the Meechum Cadets (8-7, 3-2 league), Howard’s Beacon Town Beavers have struggled to an 0-15 record. In fact, in their last outing the Beavers suffered a humiliating 71-12 defeat at the hands of Mick McAlister’s undefeated Dragons, a game in which Howard was held scoreless. The game was so tough that head coach Bobby Finstock was overheard telling his team “Don’t worry boys, only 12 games left.”
However, Friday was a different story for the Beavers. Following Howard splitting a pair of free throws seconds into the game, there was a fight for a loose ball involving most of the players on the floor. In an image that will be burned into this reporter’s brain for the rest of time, Howard emerged from the pile with the ball, covered in hair. It appeared that Howard had transformed into some sort of fur-covered monster, resembling the legendary sasquatch. The whispers from the crowd suggested otherwise: that Howard had been turned not into a sasquatch, but some sort of teenager-wolf hybrid, or Wolf-Teen (trademark pending). Oddly enough, it wasn’t only his external appearance that changed after that pile-on: Howard’s wolfish nature seemed to instantly grant him heretofore unprecedented athletic skills. What followed was the single most impressive performance in a high school basketball game in Nebraska in 50 years.
