The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat got the Eastern Conference Finals underway Monday night. The Celtics looked old and tired, while the Heat were still red hot. Even though people insist that the 5 technical fouls the Celtics got, lost them that game. I think other wise. The game was tied at halftime, and they scored 35 points in the 2nd quarter. The Heat were just better all around in the 2nd half, as they went on the smash the Celtics 93-79 in game 1. LeBron and D.Wade were still in sync, as they went on the score a combined 54 points. Game 2 is tonight in Miami at 8:30 on ESPN.
Former Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tiger Magglio Ordonez has decided to hang up the spikes.
The6 time All Star played 92 games last season with a surgically repaired right ankle, hitting a career low .255 with five homers and 32 RBIs. I will forever remember Mags for his game winning homerun against the Oakland A's in the ALCS to send the Tigers to the World Series for the first time since '84. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WV5oFj6zfI&feature=related
