If The Boston Celtics Come From Down 0-3 And Win The East Finals We’ll Never Hear The End Of It

Good morning, Sports fans and Athletics advocates!   It's your brilliant commentator Davey Mac here...back with another Sports Report for ya!   Bill Belichick is cheating again!   NBA and NHL playoffs!   Pete Alonso!   And more!   But first! Oh my goodness...but our worst fears may be getting realized.   The Boston Celtics trailed the Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals...three games to none.   The series looked over.   The Celtics were supposed to wave the white flag in Game 4.   Instead...they won that matchup...and then they went out and won Game 5 last night.   Uh-oh.
