Boston Celtics: The Big Green Machine

We'll be back and better than ever!

About :: Rizzo

What’s up guys? Thought I’d give a little bio about myself. My name is Rizzo and I’m from Revere. I’m going into my senior year at UMass Amherst and majoring in Sports Management. Although Sports Management is what I want to do, I have taken a great interest in sports journalism as of late.

My favorite teams are all over the place, but obviously I’ve got to represent the home town teams: Celtics, Patriots and the Red Sox. The rest of my favorite teams are all over the place. For basketball, I’m also a Los Angeles Lakers fan as well as a Charlotte Bobcats fan. For college basketball, I’m a huge Boston College fan as well as my UMass Minutemen, but then I’m one of the many North Carolina fans.

I played four years of high school basketball at Revere High, playing varsity for my junior and senior seasons. Mainly a three-point shooter, I set the school record for most threes in a half (six) against #4 Sommerville in my first varsity start ever. Since then, I’m relegated to intramurals at UMass and the local courts with my friends.

Hope you guys enjoy this blog and hopefully I’ll keep this consistently updated.

    I’m an inter with startup widget 1000 and I created a news widget for Boston Celtics News.
    It’s updated every hours with NBA headlines from several different sports websites like ESPN, FOX Yahoo,etc. (Take a look:

    Can we add Boston Celtics Team blog to the widget,too? That means that every time you post to your blog the headline of the post will show up on the widget and link directly to your post.
    Anyone who puts this widget on their start page or on their website will see your Boston Celtics posts too. It’s a powerful and free way to publicize your site.

    Finally, would you add the Boston Celtics News Widget to your site so that others can see it?
    Everyone who grabs the widget will automatically link to you so it’s great for your search engine rankings. Plus, it shows a lot of stories about NBA and since it’s updated every hour it is fresh and will make your site even more appealing than it already is.

    What do you think?

    Go Boston Celtics

    I visited your sports blog Boston Celtics: The Big Green Machine at You have really great articles and I’m glad I found your site.

    I would like to know if you’re accepting guest blog posts, I’d like to send you an original blog entry on basketball which I think would fit nicely with your site. I’m doing this for free but would only require 1 backlink in the article to my site.

    Please let me know if you’re interested in publishing this basketball blog entry so I can send it to you for publication soon.

    Thank you

  9. Hey Rizzo-

    I thought you might be interested in a sneak preview of the new G2 Everyday Athlete Campaign commercial, premiering this Monday with Kevin Garnett, and continuing with pro athletes like Eli Manning, Candace Parker and Kerri Walsh.

    The goal is to celebrate everyday athletes who have turned to sports in order to overcome tough times by pairing them with pros that share the same first name. For example Kevin Garnett is teaming up with Kevin Crowe of Sherman Oaks, Calif., who overcame being laid off twice in one year by turning to swimming. The “Kevins” are the first of several upcoming pairs and as stated, this commercial will premiere this Monday, the 16th.

    I’ve included the exclusive video (click here to see the spot [hyperlink]) and you can find more information on the campaign here: If you have any questions or would like more information, definitely feel free to send me a note or call.

    Thanks for taking a look and feel free to share this with your community!

    All the best,
