    Do The Right Thing: Spike Lee Praises Boston Sports

    Maybe the first thing you think of when you think about filmmaker Spike Lee is Malcom X, Do The Right Thing, Get On The Bus or those crap ass commercials with him and Michael Jordan, but for me, it's his ugly mug taunting Reggie Miller on the sidelines of a Knicks v. Pacers game. Sometimes I think of him sitting in seats at the "stadium" taunting the Red Sox. I want to hate on him for that, but I can't, because I know that if I had his money I would be at every Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins game with great seats for every one of them, taunting the Lakers, Colts or Yankees fans.

    So, it was surprising when Spike Lee gave Boston sports teams props during an interview at the Toronto film festival this weekend. He was at the festival promoting his upcoming WWII movie "Miracle at St. Anna." No, it wasn't a glowing endorsement of the greatest city in sports, but it was a nice concession by the loudest loud mouth fan in New York. Take a look...

    I do have one particular beef with Spike Lee and I think Timmy and almost every Boston sports fan will back me up on this, he is a fair weather fan. He was seen at the Staples Center during the NBA finals sporting a Lakers jersey. Maybe he's trying to cast Kobe in his next epic movie, "Where The White Women At?"
