Right now the big buzz — replacing the downers of Bill Walsh's death and Mike Vick's dogfighting case — is the potentially positive development of Kevin Garnett's impending trade to the Celtics.
The trade as reported: Garnett to the C's for Al Jefferson, Ryan Gomes, Sebastian Telfair, Gerald Green, Theo Ratliff's expiring contract, and future draft picks. Or, more succinctly: KG for Al Jefferson, chump change, and chumps. Predictably, fan boners are rock-hard all over the Internet, from the Sports Guy to MJD (whose headline-photo combo is downright frightening). And I haven't even gone over to CelticsBlog yet. I'm afraid I met get wet.
Are you ready for Rajon Rondo? Does this make the C's a contender? The automatic sacrificial lamb to the Western Conference? The answer, of course, is that I'm not gonna care until next April anyway, so why bother. Can you sense my ironic detachment? Not caring about things is what makes me so cool.
