This here's the $55 million thumbs up.
It looks like Rajon Rondo will be sticking around.
Rondo was called to the Celtic practice facilities late last night by Danny Ainge and I’m assuming he left smiling to the tune of life-time financial security. With Allen’s contract coming up at the end of this season, and player options coming up with Pierce and Garnett, Rondo’s new deal extends 2 years past what is slated to be the end of the Big 3, which signifies that Rondo is our man for the future and the present.
With this little contract issue out of the way (the deal takes affect next season after Rondo picks up his remaining 3 million on his current deal), the celtics have only Glen Davis to beat up on as a distraction.
Looks like Monday at my office too.
In an attempt to get as far away from the Red Sox as possible, the Ballpark has been on the road only to return and find the aging and ailing (Editors Note: This originally was spelled as Aleing, which is what we were doing all weekend, hence the monday post which screams hangover) Red Sox a 1/2 a game back behind the freaking Texas Rangers. I mean it’s good to be home but this is ridiculous. It’s hard times when the only redeeming thing about Boston Sports is that the Patriots won a pre season game.
There’s more to come today on both topics, the suckbag senior citizens that have become the Boston Red Sox and a look at last Thursday’s Pats pre season win over Philly. (And isn’t the irony just worth mentioning… Vick signs with a team named after an animal… awesome.)
Happy Effing Monday.

Wait a minute…
Now it all makes sense.
