QB Tony Romo and beauty pageant queen Candice Crawford tied the knot over the long weekend.

Dont worry. We know what youre thinking OMGZ SHAKING & CRYINGWHAT WAZIT LIEK?

Frankly who cares? Were more interested in what people get a million dollar quarterback and a beauty queen.

Answers: Stuff from Macys and Crate&Barrel.

Were assuming Tony and Candice were just trying to be nice and not asking for super expensive stuff. And there have been odder things put on wedding registries. My own cousin put a bicycle on his reg cause my familys classy like that.

But if were looking at the Money Person Earns to Store Value ratio, Tony wanting stuff from C&B would be the equivalent of me asking for stuff from Good Will or having the fam dumpster dive for gifts.

Anything people get them from Macys or C&B is going to be nothing nearly as nice as what is probably already in their mega-mansion.

But seriously, what do you get an NFL start and a beauty queen? They probably own everything and what they dont they can easily buy in a heartbeat.

We have some ideas.

1. A mirror. Because when youre that good looking theres no such thing as too many mirrors.

2. Jessica Simpsons new CD.

Awkward.

3. A GPS system. Because when youre that rich its easy to get lost in your vast estate.

If nothing else we know one thing Romo wouldnt get for his wedding a new NFL CBA.

Boom!

Report: Celtics express deep trade interest in P.J. Tucker

Report: Celtics express deep trade interest in P.J. Tucker

The Boston Celtics are lining up a consolation prize in the event they are unable to land Bulls guard Jimmy Butler

The Celtics are deeply interested in Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker, according to Sporting News' Sean Deveney. In 57 games this season, the 31-year-old has averaged seven points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.3 assists. The 6-foot-6, 245-pounder has played in Pheonix for five seasons. In the year before that, he spent his rookie season with the Toronto Raptors.

Tucker would join a group of shooting forwards in Jae Crowder, Jaylen Brown and Gerald Green.

The addition of Tucker isn't nearly as significant as Butler, but that may be just why the Celtics are interested. Deveney explained Tucker's "amicable" attitude and experience could be a nice fit in the Celtics' already cohesive locker room. Butler is a big splash acquisition that may make a big splash in the locker room, and he would require adjustments from Isaiah Thomas.

Moreland not worried about filling Ortiz's shoes because 'there's no replacing him'

Moreland not worried about filling Ortiz's shoes because 'there's no replacing him'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Mitch Moreland knows he's likely the only new player in Boston's lineup since David Ortiz retired at the end of last season.

He's just not listening to those who say he needs to replace Big Papi's lofty production.

"I try not to hear it because there's no replacing that guy," said the 31-year-old first baseman, who signed a one-year, $5.5-million deal with the Red Sox during the offseason.

"I think it's going to be more of a team effort," he said. "Obviously we picked up two big arms as well, and it's a very balanced club."

After playing his first six-plus seasons in the majors with the Texas Rangers, Moreland is with a new organization for the first time in his career. So far, he said, the move has been smooth.

"They welcomed me from Day One," he said. "Handshakes and hugs right off the bat. It's going to be a lot of fun. You can see why they had so much success last year."

Coming off a subpar 2016 with a .233 batting average, 22 homers and 60 RBI, Moreland tested free agency. He wanted to go to a team that had a good chance at competing for a championship -- like he felt with the Rangers.

"Something that was at the top of my list as a player," he said. "If I was going to be on a team, I wanted a team that had a chance to win. It makes it that much more fun to come to the park every day when something's on the line and you're fighting for a chance to play in the playoffs, fighting to win the division and fighting to win a World Series."

A first-time Gold Glove winner last season, Moreland knows the defending A.L. East champion Red Sox wanted his defensive skills at first to allow Hanley Ramirez to shift to Ortiz's vacated DH spot.

"It gives you a little more confidence," Moreland said. "I take pride in that. That's going to be my main goal, to go out and show what they saw."

A left-handed batter like Ortiz, Moreland knows some people will expect him to fill the void offensively because of which side of the plate he bats from.

"I think it'll be a group effort picking up what will be missing," he said. "There's no replacing that guy."

Manager John Farrell also said the club needs to move on from Ortiz so Moreland and everyone else can relax and focus on their own game.

"David's effect on the lineup was felt by a number of people. We know opponents would game plan for David," Farrell said. "I think it's important for our guys - as we put David out of our mind, in a good way - that it's still a focus on what their strengths are in the strike zone."

The transition may be easy for Moreland so far, but one thing has certainly changed: spending spring training in Florida instead of Arizona.

"Fishing's a lot different than Arizona, so that's nice," he said.

NOTES: "We're getting a firsthand look to why he's been so successful and an elite pitcher," Farrell said after left-hander Chris Sale pitched batting practice. The Red Sox acquired Sale from the Chicago White Sox in an offseason trade for four prospects. They also acquired right-handed, hard-throwing setup man Tyler Thornburg from Milwaukee . . . Farrell said righty Steven Wright, who missed the final two months of the season with a shoulder injury, "was unrestricted in his throwing." . . . The Red Sox will have a shorter workout Tuesday with the players association set to talk to the team and the organization's annual charity golf tournament in the afternoon.
