Dragging a bit this morning, as I was glued to local and national sports shows until around 1:30am. Passed out smiling, and woke up the same way. Even took the long way to Dunkin’ Donuts so that I could get a few extra minutes of radio gloating before settling in to write today’s PE Week Wire email (which is apparently late to arrive in most inboxes, due to tech difficulties being experienced by our virtual postmaster)
Anyway, a few thoughts. If you don’t care, then just move along. Nothing to see here:
* The “new” Celtics owners did not buy the team in order to make money, even though they almost exclusively consist of buyout pros, hedge fund managers and venture capitalists. It was an ego buy, particularly given how little the group gets for in-house concessions (building is effectively owned by the Bruins). But no matter: This thing is going to become a bonanza. I know more than a few folks who turned down the chance to join the limited partnership, and must be kicking themselves right about now.
* 60 Minutes this week had a report on sleep, and how a lack of it can lead to such things as diabetes. A few more 9:07pm starts, and I might have had to make a doctor’s appointment.
* Thanks Doc.
