A Pre-Game Precursor?

Tonight's much anticipated match-up between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts is not the only sports contest this weekend to feature two teams from Boston and Indy battling each other out.

Last night in the NBA, the Boston Celtics visited Conseco Fieldhouse for their only visit of the regular season and lost to the Indiana Pacers 113-104. The win was the Pacers fourth in a row. Danny Granger dropped in 29 points while off-season free agent acquisition Dahntay Jones continues to show he might be a steal. Jones scored 25 and played some stifling defense.

Was last night's victory over Boston a precursor to what will happen later this evening? We shall see. A weekend sweep of Boston sports teams would indeed be sweet. 

This is your morning open thread to talk about whatever floats your sports boat. Iowa losing in O.T. to Ohio State? Charlie Weis's job in South Bend on life support? NBA? NHL? Early NFL Sunday game thoughts? Chit-chat away folks.
