Good morning!

A few random thoughts while we wait for 8:15 p.m. on Saturday to get here already...

  • Seriously, every year Patriots fans have to wait around two weeks (sometimes three if the finale doesn't mean anything) for a playoff game. Do you guys like schedule family vacations on wild-card weekend?  I mean, you should ...
  • The Celtics made another ridiculous comeback against the 76ers, and now the Eagles will go one-and-one this weekend. Poor Philly. We're just kidding.
  • Have the Celtics struck gold with Jayson Tatum or what? There's no way that kid is 19.
  • Liked the little skirmish in the game. Marcus Morris don't play.
  • My Patriots-Titans preview will be up in the morning. Unless the Titans throw curveballs on both sides of the ball, the game will be over by halftime.
  • That Mike Tomlin sure runs a tight ship in Pittsburgh. I'm sure they're totally focused on the playoffs. Oops.

And away we go...
