The screen grab from The Boston Globe’s Boston.com shows an image with Kevin Garnett, Tom Brady, Cam Neely and Clay Buchholz. Buchholz? The Garnett, Brady and Neely injuries are monumental moments in Boston sports history. The obvious connotation that can be taken from this image is that Buchholz’s injury is on this same level.
Buchholz’s lingering back injury may do the Red Sox in come September. I can’t deny that. However, Brady’s injury was the brick wall in the way of another Patriots run to the Super Bowl. Garnett’s injury derailed the start of what looked like a potential mini-dynasty for the Celtics. The Neely injury has created one of the most iconic athletes in Boston.
