THE TRADITION

Fun night at the TD Garden tonight where they honored my good friend Dave Cowens (Celtics) and Martina Navratilova (tennis), Willie McGinest (Patriots), Rick Middleton (Bruins), Jason Varitek (Red Sox) and Chris Berman (media).  Some of those presenting were Jonathan Kraft, Chris Evert and Peter Gammons.  Cowens is still slightly taller than me.
