Psycho Sports #243 11/21/17 - It's that special time of the year in sports. Thanksgiving is around the corner and if you're in Boston, you are very thankful because a lot of your sports teams are doing well. Tyler and Ryan first break down the number one team of the region, the New England Patriots, and their impressive blowout win over the Oakland Raiders down in Mexico City in Week 11. Was the blowout win due to poor conditioning of the Oakland Raiders (not preparing themselves for the high altitude) or costly mistakes that doomed the Raiders? Or was it because the Patriots were just the superior team, playing at a high level in all aspects of the game (especially defense)? The duo discuss that plus give a small peak about the upcoming game against the Miami Dolphins and doing their 2-Minute Drill.
Joining them are two special guests to continue the Boston sports talk.
First up is Skyler Wack of SB Nation Bruins. Does backup goalie Anton Khudobin deserve to start more games over Tuuka Rask? How have the young Bruins players fared during their playing time? Which struggling Bruins player needs to step up their performance? Skyler and Tyler discuss those questions plus more on the Bs.
Then to talk all things Boston Celtics, is SB Nation Celtics writer Bobby Manning. How impressive have the Celtics been in the early goings of the season? Are they ready to take that next step to become champions or are there still things they need to work out? Can the Celtics still ride on their defense to glory?
