Falcons, Celtics and a good call

November 12, 2010

Good night all around. My second favorite NFL team (I posted that on my Myspace profile a long time ago, so you can’t call me a bandwagoner), the Atlanta Falcons, posted a 26-21 win over the Baltimore Ravens tonight. Roddy White caught 12 balls for 138 yards and two touchdowns, one of which was the game-winner. The Falcons were up 13-0 early in the third quarter but allowed the Ravens to take the lead with 1:05 left in the fourth. Joe Flacco threw three touchdowns, but that wasn’t anything Matt Ryan couldn’t match. Ryan threw three TDs and 315 yards, including the 33-yard game-winner to White with 20 seconds left. The win puts the Falcons alone in first place in the NFC – somewhere they could easily stay for the rest of the season.

While the football game was going on, a few hundred miles south the Boston Celtics were taking their talents to South Beach in their whipping of the Miami Heat. The Celtics only won by five, 112-107, but were up 15 at halftime and maintained a comfortable lead for most of the game. The Heat still can’t get any production from their starting point guard and center spots; Carlos Arroyo and Joel Anthony combined for four points, zero rebounds and zero assists. There was another no-show for the Heat tonight, and I’m not talking about their crowd. Dwyane Wade shot 2-for-12 from the field and finished with only eight points and six turnovers. I can’t wait for all the Heat bandwagon fans to jump off faster than they jumped on.

The Denver Nuggets handed the LA Lakers their first loss of the season in a 118-112 defeat in Denver. I called this outcome earlier tonight. I just thought you’d like to know.
