Despite a serious lack of baseball (I'm already having withdrawal symptoms), it's a pretty good sports weekend here in Boston. The Celtics had their long anticipated debut tonight, with the first regular season appearance of the new Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. It's been pretty successful so far, as the Celtics lead Washington by 15 with about 9 minutes left.

It's been a very long time since I was actually excited about the start of a Celtics season. This should be a fun team to watch this year, and the Celtics actually have a legitimate chance to get deep into the playoffs.

The other big sporting event is probably the biggest regular season NFL game of the year, as the 8-0 Patriots take on the 7-0 Colts. It should be a great game. There has been a lot of controversy about the Pats running up the score on their opponents this season (like in last week's 52-7 win over Washington). Y'know, the NFL isn't Pop Warner. These guys are professionals, and if they can't stop their opponent, they should expect to get their butts kicked. We'll see if Indy can stop (or even slow down) the Patriots on Sunday.
