Daniels released from hospital

The Celtics announced via Twitter that Marquis Daniels has been released from New England Baptist Hospital after suffering a bruised spinal cord during their game with the Magic Sunday. Daniels lay motionless on the floor for several hushed minutes before he was loaded on to a stretcher and taken to the hospital for tests and observation.

 

Team physician Dr. Brian McKeon said that Daniels had regained full function of his motor skills Sunday evening. The team expects him to be out at least a month, if not longer.

Celtics recall Bradley from D-League

The Celtics announced Monday that they have recalled rookie guard Avery Bradley from their D-League affiliate in Maine. Bradley is expected to join the team in time for its game at Charlotte on Monday night. With Marquis Daniels out with a serious spinal injury for at least the next month, if not longer, and Delonte West rehabbing from a broken wrist, the C's numbers were getting thin.

 

Bradley averaged 17 points, 4.8 rebounds, five assists and three steals with the Red Claws, and he tied a D-League record with nine steals against Tulsa on Jan. 30.

Esiason on D&C: Don't blame Roethlisberger

Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports made his final weekly appearance of the season on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to wrap up the Super Bowl.

 

Esiason said it would not be fair to pin the Steelers' loss on Ben Roethlisberger. "Ben had really one bad throw the entire game," Esiason said. "And I know after the game he did the whole thing, 'Woe is me. It's my fault. It's all on my shoulders. I let down the city of Pittsburgh.' You talk about overreaction — they actually scored more offensive points than the Green Bay Packers did."

 

Esiason said Rodgers deserves credit more than Roethlisberger deserves blame. "I don't think this game is really about Ben Roethlisberger's lack of ability to get his team in the end zone in the fourth quarter," Esiason said. "I just think it was a stunning performance by Aaron Rodgers, who, quite frankly, if his receivers hold on to the football,...

Mashup: Seating snafu at Super Bowl

The game was a thriller, but behind the scenes there were some issues at Sunday's Super Bowl. The biggest blunder was the failure of workers to complete 1,250 temporary seats at Cowboys Stadium that had been sold for $800 apiece. The NFL re-seated most of the affected individuals (taking seats away from Cowboys staff and families), offered three times the price as a refund, and put the remaining people in standing room areas where they had to watch a video screen.

 

Meanwhile, Christina Aguilera messed up a line in the national anthem, Las Vegas sports were hammered by bettors, and one of the four men featured in a Visa credit card commercial for having attended every Super Bowl had his streak ended when he was hospitalized.

Scott Cordischi and John Rooke take your calls, texts, tweets and emails on the week's hot topics. The boys are back together in studio! It’s a bittersweet reunion due to the end of the NCAABB Tournament run for the PC Friars, so we say “see you next season” to the play by play team of John Rooke and Joe Hassett. We don’t waste time looking ahead with the issues confronting the men’s basketball program at URI and PC. On the table is the argument over the validity of RPI, outgoing coveted players, incoming recruits and whether Coaches Dan Hurley and Ed Cooley will remain after their successful 2014 season. Some time is spent on the NFL owners meetings, with the whiny Baltimore Ravens and a ranting Bill Belichick. We close March in all it’s madness, with “Three Things” where we celebrate the open mic and a young man’s passion .
