I miss Sundays

If I hadn't worked from 10AM to 7PM today with a three-hour round-trip commute, I would have been home to watch the Celtics beat the Heat today by nearly 20 points. The Celtics are clicking right now. Just how much of a threat are they?
I probably would also have been peeking in on the Shell Houston Open, since Lefty was in contention. I see he finished four shots off the lead but in the top 10. Could he be a serious threat for The Masters next weekend, which I do intend to watch some of? (More on that later)
I definitely would have been watching the Nascar race at Martinsville, since I love watching races there and have been there once, and given that Kasey Kahne had a chance to turn his season around since he was the pole sitter. I hear he blew an engine to continue his woeful '12 season but Aric Almirola finished 8th.
I did get to see the end of the Bruins/Rangers tilt, where the Bruins prevailed 2-1 to clinch the division title and the #2 seed for the Eastern Conference playoffs. They are starting to play well again and I like their position matchup-wise for the playoffs, as it looks like they'll play Ottawa in the first round and then would face the winner of Florida/New Jersey in the second round, if they get by a tough Senators squad.
So I've been missing having my favorite sports day off and that will change very soon, just in time for spring and summer.

Glad to hear your schedule is changing. I spent Sunday watching the IndyCar race and then I took a two-hour nap. A few minutes ago I saw the final laps of the Martinsville race. I can't help but think Karma served justice when Bowyer took out JJ and JG in turn one at the end.

You also missed Liverpool lose to Newcastle 2-0 with Pepe Reina getting a straight red card.

Yes, Rick, I missed that completely. I didn't even know until you said so. The Reds can't seem to play well lately unless it's in a Cup match. Thanks for rubbing it in. LOL
