    O Captain! My Captain!

    Paul Peirce sits in an awkward position. He is the captain of our Boston Celtics. Although everyone always refers to them as KG's team. KG is the more vocal of the two and a larger "presence" in the locker room. I put this out to our amazing captain. The time is now to put an indelible mark on this franchise for yourself. Steer this banged up crew through the rest of the season and the imminent post season and you will have arrived. Make the rest of this season and playoff run unforgettable for all the right reasons. Keep team first and never let up. Use your fall away jump shot, your swagger and your energy.

    It is not that I don't feel that you are a great Celtic player. The events of last June put you in a special place in all of our hearts. I look at it this way, you're in the room with Bird, Russell and Cousy. You're about to sit down to dinner with these men. When all of a sudden it dawns on you that they are still a distance away. You, Paul are still at the kiddies table. The food is still great the linen is pressed and your voice is in the room. Now is your chance to solidify your legacy and without question seat yourself in a position to rub elbows with and be remembered as not just a great Celtic. This is you're chance to be remembered as one of the Celtic greats. There is a difference. Put this team on your back and carry them to the promised land again. This is your team, remind the world of that fact.
