What stunned me about this column was it's sheer stupidity. A reader will know what lays in store by the third sentence:
"We didn't even have courtside fan Bill Belichick tossing a red beanbag to challenge an official's call."
He misuses the talk radio term "Long time. First Time."
He starts listing things.
And this paragraph is placed awkwardly between one regarding the temperature in the building and one about the game:
The stars came out for Boston's big game. Belichick was seated next to the Pistons' bench and had a chance to visit with Tedy Bruschi and Vince Wilfork along the baseline. You didn't have to look far to see John Havlicek, Penny Marshall, and Ellen Pompeo.
Hey Dan, just because you wrote the paragraph during or before the game, doesn't mean you have to shoehorn it into the final column.
The final few paragraphs are just a mishmash of statistics and restatements of what he wrote earlier.
