They talked once, when Bill was maybe 17 and Springsteen in his mid-20s. Kid, the Boss asked him, what do you want to do in life?

- Boston's number one Celtics blog RedsArmy.com, keeps an eye on the Spurs and other contenders.
I hope the Spurs will be 100% healthy when the playoff starts. That was the key to the season and that is still key for playoff success.
