Sure, straight up sports blogs can be great for getting hard stats and locker room chatter, but how much can you really learn from something that doesn't prominently reference Alaa Abdelnaby? Never have to answer that question again, once you start reading Employee #8: I Make Baskets.
Inspired by the late 90s Antoine Walker Adidas commercial and launched just in time for the playoffs, E8IMB's a new blog from a group of local Cs fans covering a mishmash of random Celtics awesomeness including current playoff commentary, old player pics and video, and even fake guest appearances, which also occur every time Scalabrine forgets he wasn't on the playoff roster. Choice posts include "Big Men With a Better Game than Dwight Howard" featuring pics of Eric Montross, Dwayne Schintzius (pre and post mullet), and even an autographed Alaa Abdelnaby 'blazers card, and select photos of Delonte West and Matt Barnes above the caption, "players who in 20 years will be in jail for committing a horrific crime and we will talk about how we all missed the 'warning signs'", which is technically inaccurate, since Delonte's stealing your car... right now! There're also thoughts on Rashard Lewis actually being a white guy trapped in a 6'10" black guy's body, and epic fake guest entries from Tony Allen: "Love the name, but I don't get it. The only thing I understand is me dunking on Antawn Jamison. It has a few thousand views on YouTube already! I clicked on it a thousand times before I went to bed and then when I couldn't sleep, I brought it to the mirror and watched it while staring at myself. You didn't think that was possible? I've got superhuman powers!".
If you'd rather get your C's fix via 140 characters or less, they've also got a Twitter feed with tweets like "News break: Dwight Howard complains about personal foul call...before game starts", and a "Wired with Stan Van Gundy," in which he just implores Gortat to find him a sausage, something Abdelnaby would never do, since you know that dude doesn't touch pig.
