Hannah on D&C remembers Tatupu

Hall of Fame lineman John Hannah was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about former Patriots teammate Mosi Tatupu, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 54. "I don't think Mosi was maybe blessed with the speed of Sam Cunningham or [Don] Calhoun, but when it came to that tough one yard or two yards on third down or any of those situations, Mosi was the guy," Hannah said. "Not only that, he was a totally unselfish guy. He was the kind of guy on special teams that caused the fumbles, recovered the fumbles, got you the ball. He was that crucial player that you needed to always count on. He was always going to be there, he was always going to perform, and he was just a leader that way. ... I don't think there was a guy on the team that didn't like Mosi, or that he didn't like. He created a chemistry there that really helped our team."

 

Hannah said Tatupu's death was a surprise to him, as the...

Ainge: Pierce 'a game-time decision'

Celtics president Danny Ainge appeared on The Big Show Wednesday afternoon and said the team is being cautious with Paul Pierce's injured right thumb heading into Thursday's game against the Eastern Conference-leading Cavaliers. "It will be a game-time decision," Ainge said. "You never know with Paul. We want to be cautious with that thumb because those things can get aggravated easily. I don’t think the injury is serious, but they can get aggravated over and over and over."

 

Ainge said he thought newly acquired guard Nate Ropbinson "was playing a little nervous" in his Celtics debut Tuesday night against the Knicks. As for Robinson and Rajon Rondo sharing court time, Ainge wasn't sure that was a good fit. "I don’t think that it’s an ideal tandem," he said. "I look at it more as an option that Doc has occasionally. I don’t think it’s something we should see every night...
