Hour one of Thursday's show features Callahan and Minihane being forced to lead the show without Dino (who called off on short notice). The guys talk Sox and with fill-in Marine corps vet-producer Matt Morel

All this time I’ve been touting Dragan Bender as my choice for the Celtics with the third overall pick, but for all the wrong reasons. I’ve wanted Bender because he learned to speak English from watching Chandler Bing and for dragon-themed blogs that will right themselves.

But that was before science got involved. Now, thanks to John Brinkus and his crack research staff, we know that Bender shoots like Steph Curry only 15 percent faster, can lower his center of gravity like Karl Anthony-Towns and defends like two-time Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard. Now, they didn’t specifically mention that he also can rebound like Bill Russell, jump like Dominique Wilkins, cook like Gordon Ramsey and play trumpet like Miles Davis, but that’s implied if not directly stated.

Bear in mind, this isn’t some video my man Dragan’s agent put out. This is cold, hard, analytical data mining. Bender might be a living stick figure who’s never played ball on North American soil and isn’t old enough to buy a beer. But he’s got my vote. It’s science.

Former Celtics General Manager Jan Volk joins Kirk Minihane for a discussion that any Celtics fan will love. Kirk and Jan talk about the legendary 85/86 Celtics and how the team was constructed and of course the decision to draft Len Bias and his tragic death.

(NSFW, language)

I recognize Chris Price posted this earlier, but I wouldn’t be deserving of the blogging street cred I’ve worked so hard to achieve if I didn’t discuss it here.

We don’t often know these celebrities. Fame does things to people. You could understand if Ben Affleck went from Cambridge Ringe & Latin kid to Hollywood big shot, winning Oscars, jetting around the globe with Tom Brady and his hot nanny and it changed him. It’s hard to ever know that guy sitting in the front row right next to the Red Sox dugout is still the same old guy, or a well-connected poseur.

Well this video tells us all we need to know. Affleck is still the same Masshole he always was.

He has to be. He’s a good actor, but nobody can fake that. That Deflategate anger is real. That spitting hatred for the NFL is genuine. And that profane, vitriolic disgust over the whole circus is pure us. It’s like he took a year’s worth of Thornography posts (particularly the one about Eli Manning doctoring footballs), mixed it with a healthy dose of non-FCC language and came up with a rant for the ages.

Well done, Batfleck. This more than makes up for “Gigli” and “Batman v Superman.” My boy is wicked smart.

I’m about to leave for Buffalo to cover the NHL draft, so my contributions here won’t be plentiful the next couple days. As such, I leave you with a reminder that Dru Hill named three of their four studio albums after Dru puns (all images courtesy of Wikipedia).

Here is their first album, 1996’s self-titled “Dru Hill.” So I guess they had “Dru” in all four of their album names.

Druhill-1996

Then there was 1998’s “Enter the Dru.” If you don’t know what they were getting at there then I hate you.

Enterthedru-1998

2002 brought “Dru World Order.”

Druworld-order-cover-2000

And the most clever (and not at all forced) of them all: “InDRUpendence Day.”

InDRUpendence_Day

 

Such a shame that they didn’t keep recording albums. “J.D. Dru” would have been the most fire album of 2007.
