Here is a classic quote from Alan’s story:
“I’m sure this will delight Montreal Canadiens fans to know that I was Macduff’s son in my father’s production of Macbeth, and I was murdered eight times,” he said. “I was 10.”
Even though he has not scored a goal in the playoffs, Bruins fans can’t help but love old-time star Jaromir Jagr. Maybe it’s that he is 41-years-old with a crazy Wolverine beard and a mullet.
But this may be the best fact yet that really puts how old Jagr is into perspective.
Jagr won the NHL scoring title in 1995, the first of five times he would accomplish that feat. Who was the Major League Baseball MVP that year? None other than Red Sox star Mo Vaughn, who played his last game 10 years ago.
Beat it Doc
Colleague Michael Muldoon was dead on when he said “Good Riddance” to Celtics coach Doc Rivers. But it’s not just his overly selfish attitude of late.
As painful as it is to accept, the Celtics are heading into a rebuilding stage, and that is NOT Doc’s strength.
In his first three seasons as Boston coach, when the C’s were rebuilding, he was a very underwhelming 102-144 including the horrific 24-58 season the year before the big moves.
