Wow… can Super Bowl XLIII get any more publicity?

Let me explain: the man whose nickname about 99.9 percent of people age 10-30 know is now speaking out on the Super Bowl.

That’s right, Dwayne Carter, Jr., Birdman’s adopted son, who is more commonly know as Lil’ Wayne wrote an article about the Super Bowl.

Now, however, he has fit himself into the mix, with the first triple- double since Ryan Gomes for the Celtics and rising thoughts that the Celtics might not only have a Boston Three Party but a Boston Three Party plus One.
