Will the 2014-’15 season be Rajon Rondo’s last year with the Boston Celtics?
The Boston Celtics released their schedule for the 2014-’15 season on Wednesday. The Celtics will play only one nationally televised game on January 14th at home against the Atlanta Hawks. This means the Celtics are not a premier team in the NBA.
Their lone star (Rajon Rondo) is in the final year of his contract. Their roster is filled with either players who have been disappointments (Jeff Green, Evan Turner, and Tyler Zeller) and rookies like Marcus Smart and James Young.
The Celtics schedule in November looks to be daunting. They have to travel to Houston (Rockets), Dallas (Mavericks), and Chicago Bulls. The only game where they could be favored is on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers. Then they have a six-game road trip through the Western Conference from January 19th through January 28th.
Here are some notable games for Celtics fans to look forward to.
-October 29th – The Celtics open the season versus the Brooklyn Nets at the Garden. Kevin Garnett could be back with the Nets. This might be Garnett’s final season in the NBA.
Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens joined in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge this week.
The Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS has created widespread attention, especially among the professional teams in Boston. New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman and Boston Bruins forwards Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand have been shown on the local news completing the Challenge.
On Monday, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens accepted his challenge from WEEI.com’s Ben Rohrbach.
Stevens dedicated his efforts to his friend Matt White and Boston College Sports Information Director Dick Kelley, who died of ALS in 2011. The second-year coach challenged all of the Celtics fans.
Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and newly signed Evan Turner participated in the Challenge.
The Ice Bucket Challenge has gained widespread attention for ALS and the Pete Frates #3 Fund. Frates was a former Boston College baseball player who was diagnosed with ALS in March of 2012. The ALS Association has reportedly raised $1.3 million since the end of July.
The Patriots Accept The Ice Bucket Challenge In Grand Style
Bill Belichick, Bob Kraft & the Patriots accepted the #Icebucketchallenge from NY Giants president, John Mara. As everything else, the team took an ice cold shower as a team.
Owner Bob Kraft challenged his team’s divisional foes the Jets, Dolphins & Bills.
As they have been served for the better part of the millennium, the cannon fodder of the AFC East are getting challenged again.
Will they fail miserably?
Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has had an incredible year highlighted by the birth of his first child and winning the NHL’s Vezina Trophy. Besides winning the Stanley Cup what else could rank up there with such incredible moments?
Perhaps saving a puck fired from a cannon?
There were rumors that Rask may not be of this Earth and this justifies it….
What’s next for Tuukka time?!?
Hopefully, next year using his super human strength to hoist a large silver trophy over his head!

Former Bruin & current Oilers captain Andrew Ference has taken the #icebucketchallenge to fight ALS to a new level. Sorry to the countless others that have filled a beach pail full of “ice water” and posted it on social media.
Go BIG OR GO HOME!
And Ferknuckle did just that (click on the picture to view)
He is no longer wearing the Spoked B, but how can you not love Andrew Ference as person as well as a player?

NESN’s Jamie Erdahl had an uphill battle replacing fan favorite Naoko Funayama on Bruins telecasts. But she grew on you….it helped that she is easy on the eyes and flirted with almost every player during interviews (look at those eyes above).
After seeing even more of Jamie Erdahl during her #icebucketchallenge for ALS awareness, she may have reached a new level of hotness.
Nice touch rockin’ the Black & Gold. I would have liked to see a Spoked B Belly ring.
Is it October yet?
Oh yeah, me and every hot blooded male is chomping at the bit for the Baconator AKA Jenny
Dell Middlebrooks to take a cold ice bath….
