Tony's Top 5
Things about April
The NBA playoffs Later than usual this year, but can't help but wonder now if the Celtics actually plan to make a little noise.
The Masters A tradition unlike any other, or so we're told. And it looks like Tiger Woods has his groove back, too.
The NFL Draft The Patriots have two selections in the first round and two more in the second. The wage scale is in place. Might they actually trade up?
Major League Baseball Yes, the season is too long. But the baseball season in Boston, specially, suddenly means something again.
NHL Playoffs Maybe the bruins will make another run. Maybe they won't. But the postseason in hockey does not disappoint. Ever.
