DATELINE: Time and Tide Goes Backwards
With word that former Celtic Ray Allen may return to Boston for the first time in Green since 2012, the seismic register has begun to shake off the chart.
Allen left the Celtics and a two-year contract on the table for less money in Miami. He alienated Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Their big three musketeers turned into three blind mice.
The real reason that Ray Allen had to leave the Celtics was Rajon Rondo. Their on court animosity was more palpable than lumps in your coffee.
Now all the evil that men do lives after them in other places.
Ray Allen is ready, at 41, to play ball with the Celtics as their grand old man.
It has sparked some talk in sports circles about the inevitability of Father Time. No, A-Rod will not show up at Fenway ready to rekindle his once-reversed contract with the Red Sox.
And, now that Tom Brady is suspended for a month of Sundays in September, we hear that Tony Eason, Steve Grogan, and Doug Flutie are warming up in the wings.
Yep, and Ted Danson is considering re-fitting himself into the Boston bar where everyone knew his name as the dumb blond guy. And, Woody Harrelson will demur.
Old age is a number—and when Manny Ramirez says he wants one more chance to drop balls in left field, we are listening.
If Donald Trump can kick babies instead of kiss them, we know our world is upside down.
Come back, Ray Allen. Rondo is dispatched, and Tom Brady is in limbo. We need your superstar status to fill up the empty pages of blogs and the vapid sports reports every evening on TV.
Can Aaron Hernandez be expecting a presidential pardon to return to the Patriots?
