It's raining dolla's and attack dogs!

Note to self: Los Angeles of Anaheim of California of the United States of America of the planet known as Earth holds a grudge.

And, boy, do they know how to express it.

Over the weekend Angels fans showed Carl Crawford what they thought of him leaving LA for Boston and a 142 million contract by making it rain with wadded 1 bills.

An amusing gesture throwing dollars at a guy who took a huge paycheck or enjoys gentlemens clubs. One of the two. Were not sure.

Its just like how San Jose Sharks fans have thrown sharks on the ice because its the team mascot, Toronto Maple Leafs fans have thrown waffles on the ice because theyre Canadian and Detroit Red Wings fans throw octopi on the ice because because ummm err theres no one left in the city but octopi? No, that doesnt work. Whatever.

It made us wonder what other things would be thrown on a playing surface for what players andor teams are known for.

Montreal Canadiens
The players are already doing this on their own (and quite well), but Canadiens fans could throw their favorite players on the ice.

Bruins fans call it diving; Habs fans call it being a more talented team. Either way, theres a 100 chance a Habs player will be flat on his face during a game.

Other acceptable items: blow torches, matches, pitchforks, burned car parts, glass shards and anything else that was grabbed while looting stores after another playoff bonfire.

Ray Allen, Boston Celtics
Simple: Threes.

Lindy Ruff, Buffalo Sabres
The Buffalo Sabres head coach is notorious for crying. And hes at it again this postseason after Flyers knucklehead Mike Richards boarded one of Ruffs players.

There are a few things Sabres could throw on the ice tissues and tampons, for one.

Antonio Cromartie, New York Jets
The guy has nine kids. He needed an advance from the Jets so he could pay child support. Were not sure what the guys spending his million-dollar NFL paycheck on that he cant make his child support but its obvious what needs to be thrown his way:

Pocket change to help him make his next child support payment would also be ungraciously appreciated.

Michael Vick, Philadelphia Eagles
Attack dogs. Lots and lots of angry attack dogs.

We might be on to something here. The possibilities are endless!

Report: Celtics plan is 'sequencing' acquisitions of Hayward, George

Report: Celtics plan is 'sequencing' acquisitions of Hayward, George

The Celtics are working to acquire BOTH Paul George and Gordon Hayward this summer, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports' The Vertical reports.

More from Woj's report:

The Boston Celtics are pursuing an aggressive summer plan of sequencing the signing of free agent Gordon Hayward and relinquishing the assets needed to complete a trade for Paul George, league sources told The Vertical.

For salary-cap purposes, Boston wants a Hayward commitment before it can finalize a trade for George and secure the most dynamic free-agent coup in franchise history, league sources said.

For Boston, here’s the hitch: While Indiana believes Boston can offer the best possible package, the Pacers may be unwilling to wait until the start of July free agency on Boston’s timetable and could turn toward making a deal elsewhere for George, league sources told The Vertical. 

This report confirms an earlier one from the weekend that said the C's were looking to acquire both superstars.


 
 

Farrell suspended one game for last week's run-in with umpire

Farrell suspended one game for last week's run-in with umpire

BOSTON -- Red Sox manager John Farrell has been suspended one game because of Saturday night's scream-fest with umpire Bill Miller, when Farrell objected to a balk call made on Fernando Abad that led to an Angels run in the seventh inning.

Farrell is to serve the suspension on Tuesday night. He has also been fined.

Farrell and the umpire couldn't have been much closer to each other's face, and some contact was made.

"There was contact made, yes. I didn't bump him though," Farrell said a day later. "The tip of my finger touched his shirt."

Miller has ejected Farrell three times, more than any other umpire.

"No, honestly I didn't even know that, someone's brought to my attention that it's been the third time," Farrell said Sunday when asked if that history played in. "I don't have a tote board of who's done what and how many times
