First things first this morning: Anyone who is surprised by Paul Pierce's performance last night simply hasn't been paying attention the last few years. By hitting his first six shots en route to a blowout Game 3 win, he changed the entire tenor of the series. Just more proof that you've gotta respect The Truth.
That digression out of the way, here's your reminder to check out the transcript of our weekly TATB weekly chat, which took place at noon. With the Bruins wiping out the overmatched Habs, the Celtics showing their champion's will, the Yanks in town for their first battles of '09 with the Sox, and the NFL Draft just a day away, there was plenty to talk about, so we stuck around for an extra half-hour to cover it all. Heck of a time to be a Boston sports fan, isn't it? Sure seems like we've said that a lot the last few years.
