It’s Thursday, which means we’re one day away from the weekend, so let’s buckle down and get some work done! Also, we’ll jumpstart the day with headlines and news, too!

* The Boston Celtics eared their third consecutive win on Wednesday when they defeated the Utah Jazz, 94-82. Kevin Garnett paced the Green and White with 23 points and 10 rebounds, while Paul Pierce tallied 20 points. Boston’s win set-up a two-way tie atop the Atlantic division with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Green and White will return to the hardwood on Friday when they travel to Minnesota.

* The Boston Bruins will look to earn their 46th win of the season on Thursday when they host the Washington Capitals. The Capitals are currently locked in the ninth spot, and certainly need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. However, Boston remains the second best team in the Eastern Conference, and is on par to wrap up the Northeast division.

* According to sources – Chris Carpenter, who came to Boston via Chicago as compensation for Theo Epstein, is expected to have surgery to remove a bone spur from his throwing elbow.

* Finally, New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis called New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick a “jerk” on Wednesday on SportsCenter.     

Romo, Cowboys Suffer Another Heartbreaking Opening Day Loss

Once again, Romo struggles, and the Cowboys lose!

By Matt Noonan 

Entering Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, quarterback Tony Romo did the unthinkable in the fourth quarter, as he misfired a pass that was intended for Dez Bryant and instead found cornerback Darrelle Revis.


Well, once again, Romo proved that he’s not exactly Mr. Clutch. He’s certainly not Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, but once again, the Cowboys begin another season losing under the “Sunday Night Lights.”

The Boys won the first three quarters, but slipped during the final 15 minutes, which allowed quarterback Mark Sanchez and kicker Nick Folk enough time to muster enough points for an exciting opening day win.

So, while the Jets and head coach Rex Ryan catch their breath, one has to wonder, what do the Cowboys do now?

Well, head coach Jason Garrett needs to do something, especially since his team cannot afford to begin their season [0-2] again, (ahem, last year). So, hopefully this particular game will inspire America’s Team to stop slouching in the final quarter. Perhaps this particular game will force the Boys to learn how to play the final quarter with a passion or swagger, but then again, they’re like the Boston Red Sox, who tug at their fans hearts, (zing).

Don’t get too discouraged Cowboys fans, especially since it’s only one game, yet, it’s OK to wonder if Tony Romo is the right man to lead this team? Seriously, the squad looks pretty banged up and definitely they’re some questions that’ll need to be addressed, but in the end, it’s just a game, so hopefully they can regroup and register their first win against the San Francisco 49ers.

If not, they’ll once again be in Jerry Jones’s “dog house.”
