Things more painful to watch than the Bruins

In a lot of ways this Bruins-Habs series is harder on the Bruins fans soul than the Flyers debacle last year.

Maybe its because its happening against the Canadiens. Maybe its because the Bruins are looking flatter than week old soda. Maybe its cause the Tin Man has shown more heart than this years Bruins squad. Whatever the reason is, watching the Bruins playing like drunken frat boys on the ice is absolutely excruciating to watch.

So it got us thinking whats not good but still less excruciating to watch than the Boston Bruins?

Three Minutes of Fame
In a lot of ways, the Three Minutes of Fame mini-game between periods at the Garden looks a lot like how the Bruins are playing hockey no real strategy, everyone playing tackle the guy with the puck, horrid passing.

Only difference is these kids are like eight and arent getting paid boatloads of cash. Theyre also showing more hustle.

Whatever the hell this is:

Question: Did Roosevelt run this race with a bullet in his chest?

The Boston Red Sox
And thats saying something since the Sox arent exactly lighting it up with highlights this year either. They just put together their first winning streak of back-to-back games. Yknow what? They still have more wins this week than the Bs.

Shaq playing for the Celtics
Statler and Waldorf say it best.

Every Friday parody out there
Seriously. The song sucked. The parodies are even worse. Just let it go people. Let it go.

Giving birth
The video we all saw in eighth grade was awkward and uncomfortable as hell. The real-deal isnt much better.

The Boston Marathon
Nothing says Im a lazy buggar like watching other people run while drinking copious amounts of beer. And watching someone poop themselves while running on live TV? Still less painful than the Bruins powerplay.

Lets hope the Bruins show some pride out there tonight. Ugh.

OFFSEASON

Yabusele expects to be on Celtics summer league roster

Yabusele expects to be on Celtics summer league roster

ROXBURY, Mass. – The Boston Celtics shocked many on draft night last week when they selected French forward Guerschon Yabusele with the 16th overall pick.

Well here’s another unexpected twist involving Yabusele: He said he plans to be on the Celtics’ summer league team which begins play next week in Salt Lake City.

“My agent is working in France to do something for me, to be able to play in summer league,” Yabusele said.

Like most NBA rookies, Yabusele is eager to get on the floor and get his first taste of NBA basketball this summer.

“That’s a dream come true,” Yabusele said. “When I was young thinking about the NBA all the time. I knew it would happen at some point.”

But the 20-year-old forward isn’t focused on testing the NBA waters and returning to overseas play soon.

“Not just stay three years or four, but stay all my life in the NBA,” he said.

Yabusele made the announcement following the Boston Celtics’ rookies (minus Ante Zizic) all participating in a basketball clinic at the Madison Park Community Center as the Boston Celtics celebrated their 50th Renovation project since 2008.

The news isn’t quite as optimistic for fellow international Celtic Ante Zizic who is not likely to have his contract situation overseas worked out in enough time to join Boston for summer league play in Salt Lake City and afterwards in Las Vegas.

Still, Yabusele getting a shot to play now is huge both for his own personal growth and that of the Celtics to get a better feel for how their first-round pick stacks up against fellow rookies and young teammates like Jordan Mickey.

This past season, Yabusele averaged 11.5 points and 6.8 rebounds in 28.7 minutes with Rouen Metropole Basket in the LNB Pro A league in France. He appeared in 34 games and grabbed 10 or more rebounds 11 times while tallying eight double-doubles.
