    I really, really hated Ainge as a player, but that's neither here nor there. I hope he has a quick recovery.

    Must have heard that Kevin Garnett's going to miss the playoffs.
  6. The guy is wired so tightly, can't say I'm shocked. I hope he gets through it w/out much trouble.

    Termed a "minor heart attack" by Celtics officials. God bless those assholes for trying to spin a cardiac event. There's no such thing as a minor heart attack.

    Always remember him fondly as a Jay

    If I ever have a heart attack and anyone tries to call it minor or mild, they'll get facial bruising that's a lot more than minor.

    What's the old aphorism? Something like, a "minor" heart attack is one that happens to somebody else.

    Actually, there is such a thing as a minor heart attack. I had one and never knew I'd had it. I had an attack of angina about 18 months ago, went to the ER, they ran some tests, did a heart cath and picked it up then. No telling when I'd had it, but it was probably at least three, maybe four years earlier, and there was no doubt about what it was. My wife is an ICU nurse and she picked it up right away on the cath monitor. Anyway, I ended up having triple bypass surgery, a truly life-changing experience.
