Rivers doubleheader

Today is a big day at Verizon Center for the Rivers family. The IPB will be in attendance at both games, along with Jeremiah and Doc. Mabe some other Celtics (like former UConn star Ray Allen) will be on hand to catch the Georgetown-UConn contest.

Check out this blurb from today's Boston Globe:

Rivers said he will have a "nice day" at the Verizon Center in Washington today. He will be on hand when his son, Jeremiah, plays for Georgetown against Connecticut at 2 p.m. And Jeremiah is expected to be in attendance when the Celtics play the Wizards at the same venue at 7:30.

"It's tough to watch any of his games because you're a parent," Rivers said. "You don't have any positive thoughts when you watch your own kids. Everything is, 'Don't screw up. Don't do this. Don't do [that].' You never say, 'Go kick his [butt].' That's what you should think.

"As a parent, you're just nervous. It's just tough."
