Havlicek stole the ball! Well, he dribbled it through the automotive department, at any rate.

Bill Russell

Jeannette Andre photographed Bill Russell at the unveiling of his statue outside City Hall today.

This wasn't Russell's first viewing of the statue, though. On Wednesday, he and President Obama took a look:

Incoming Celtics player Kelly Olynyk will help the T inaugurate the first electronic signboard to let you know the next trolley is approaching/arriving, in a ceremony tomorrow at 2 p.m. at Kenmore station.

For the first time on the Green Line, electronic message boards will provide "Next Train" information.

The T says it will explain exactly what that means at the ceremony.

Olynyk, who went to Gonzaga, will then ride the Green Line to North Station with state Transportation Secretary Richard Davey, who went to Gonzaga law school.

Bill Russell at Fenway Park

The Boston Public Library has posted a ton of Leslie Jones basketball photos, including a number of Celtics photos, such as this one of Bill Russell at Fenway in September, 1962 and this one of Bob Cousy with the ball in a 1950s game at the Garden against the Knicks:

Garden officials revealed that fact at a hearing before the Boston Licensing Board today.

"There's significantly more beer drinking at Bruins games than at Celtics games," one Garden official told the board.

Of course, the officials and their high-priced lawyer from Ropes & Gray did not make their way to the eighth floor of City Hall just to discuss relative beer consumption. They were there to answer a citation issued by Boston Police on April 4 of this year for a drunken 16-year-old holding a beer and creating a disturbance during a Celtics/Spurs game.

End of game, end of story.

Jay Fitzgerald pays his respects:

I'm trying to remember the last time a losing Boston sports team garnered as much fan respect as this year's Celtics. The only team I can think of is the 1967 Red Sox "Impossible Dream" team.
