Al Horford missed the Celtics’ win last night over the Heat to be in Atlanta for the birth of his daughter. This did not sit well with Mike Felger, a Boston-based radio and TV doofus, who said on CSN New England last night that Horford should have chartered a private jet and made the game because that’s what tough basketball men do. “I like my guys to forsake everything for the team,” Felger said.
This nonsense posturing inevitably happens every year when a player has a child, and Felger is an experienced troll. But this case is noteworthy on its own because of Anna Horford, Al’s sister, who owns.
In case anyone was still unclear, Anna was having too much fun this weekend to have a kid, as made clear in her pinned tweet.
