We Need a Nickname for Dan Shaughnessy

Paul Pierce played with Antoine Walker, who played with Rick Fox, who played with Larry Bird, who played with Dave Cowens, who played with John Havlicek, who played with Bob Cousy. This is one of the things I love about the Celtics. There are only five guys separating Truth from the Cooz.

Mr. Shaughnessy may just have articulated the entire reason this blog even exists. The past is never far removed from the present. Truth be told, if Grampa Celtic (Bob Ryan) is Scribe 1-A for Battleship Shamrock, then Shaughnessy probably deserves 1-B classification.When Curly weighs in, he usually hits the mark on several occasions, with insights not shared elsewhere.

Curly's not a bad nickname.

But I think we can do better.
