Jared Sullinger Suspended For Boston's Season-Opener in Toronto Tomorrow Night
You have to feel for the Celtics, they are going to be truly awful this season (at least we hope so in order to get a lottery pick in a loaded draft next June) and their 2013-14 regular season-opener tomorrow night in Toronto (7, CSN) couldn't possibly come at a worse time for local sports fans: directly against Game 6 of the World Series with the Red Sox having a chance to clinch at Fenway Park plus Bruins-Penguins in Pittsburgh for the first time since the Eastern Conference Finals last season.
Celtics vs. Raptors is a crappy enough game to begin with but if you planned on tuning over during the constant commercials of the baseball game on Fox, you have one less reason to pay attention to the Celts: forward Jared Sullinger was suspended for one game stemming from his domestic violence incident in August with his girlfriend. The good news for him and the team is that the charges were dropped yesterday in court but I think the C's are doing the right thing by taking a somewhat hard line on this. The team is going to be bad enough as it is, no reason for people to hate the players and management before they even get started.
Anyways, Tank for Wiggins!
