Your daily rundown of what's going on with the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and Revolution, and what's about to happen...
- Celtics rushed out to a big lead against the Heat early, but gave that up. They took a 10-point lead late, but gave that up. Still, they gutted out the when Payton Pritchard tossed in Marcus Smart's shot.
- That's 3 wins on a 4-game road trip, and continues to a surprising start to the season.
- Nick Caserio was announced as the Texans' general manager today. So far, no statement from Bill Belichick. That and other thoughts on Caserio, McDaniels and Belichick.
- Patrice Bergeron got the C today from the Bruins.
- Tuukka Rask explains his bubble exit a little bit more.
- What's up with the Red Sox doing nothing so far?
- Our hoops guy missed it the other day, but I just wanted to make sure Team USA got their due for upsetting Canada at the World Juniors. Like I said, gritty team. And Canada was soft after getting punched in the mouth. Shutout for BC goalie Spencer Knight.
