As Celtics 24/7 notes, the Celtics swept their series, the Bruins went up 3-2 in theirs and the Red Sox dismantled the Angels.
Today on "What Can We Make Heidi Eat?" the NESN stadium reporter was pushed in front of some garlic fries and a chocolate-cherry shake in Anaheim. Unlike in Texas, where she was ordered to eat a four-pound pretzel, Watney took only a nibble of one fry and what looked like maybe a teaspoon of the shake.

Walked into the West Roxbury Panera to discover they have a weekly singalong for the under-3 set every Thursday. For some reason, one of the songs the guitarist chose was "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," whose lyrics he modified slightly:
