DATELINE: Hairless in Boston
We have been scratching our heads over Jared Sullinger and Marcus Smart. We haven’t seen such a hairball since the cat got sick.
They remain #36 and 7 in our programme, but there is a hint of Mini-me and his master in their demeanor.
If you are looking for clones in pint size, Jared Sullinger has met his match.
If you think Sullinger lost weight this summer as he promised, you may have been hoodwinked by the misdirection to the top of his head.
We are not sure if this will fool opposing players into thinking they are looking at #36 when #7 is actually dribbling the ball.
We are not sure if this new hair style is meant to fool Danny Ainge into thinking his large round Sullinger has melted into a lithe and smaller Sullinger.
Birds of a feather often fly together, but we aren’t sure just yet that the hair is flying or just the feathers of a peacock.
Both Celtics players now sport a Mohawk hairdo with a golden comb, like Foghorn Leghorn.
We will miss Jelly O’Sully this season, but right now we seem to have Jarhead Smartullinger, the newest Green to Gold craze.
As we recall, fellow New Englander Robert Frost wrote a poem about green going to gold. We had no idea he was a Celtic fan. We had no idea Sullinger was a Frost fan. Never the Mark Twain shall meet again.
