You'll want to make sure your TV remote has fresh batteries on Wednesday night, because it could get a workout, with three Boston teams overlapping. If you're a big sports fan like me, you may be asking your friends, "which game are you watching most closely tonight!?!?" Obviously with the Sox having the most to gain or lose in ALCS Game 4 against Houston, that should be the primary focus. Fortunately, the Sox-Astros first pitch is at 5:08 today (Wed.), so it will probably be over before 9pm, but will cross over with the Bruins and Celtics which both start at 7:30pm.
The Bruins should be fun to watch, as young stars like David Pastrnak, Jeremy Swayman, Charlie McAvoy and Charlie Coyle become more significant parts of the team's core, along with veterans like Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. The B's looked good in their season opening win against Dallas on Saturday.
The Celtics face the Knicks in the first game of the season on Wednesday night, after just four preseason games. New head coach Ime Udoka and the Celts are still in a semi-rebuild, as the team adds a few new faces to a core that includes budding superstars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, returning veteran Al Horford and team mainstay Marcus Smart, who takes over the point guard spot after the departure of Kemba Walker. Walker signed with the Knicks in the offseason, so it should be an interesting game to watch.
Game on! Enjoy. Go Sox! Go Celts! Go B's!
