-- Robert Kraft was in attendance at the Celtics Game 1 win over the Pacers on Sunday and received a standing ovation from the TD Garden crowd.

This was Kraft’s first big public appearance since he was charged with solicitation of prostitution after two visits to a Florida day spa in January and the appearance came just two days after a judge in West Palm Beach delayed a ruling on whether video and other evidence from his visit to the spa should be released to the public.

Kraft was sitting with Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck near the sideline at the Garden and pumped his fist as he stood to acknowledge the reception from the crowd.

Oh, and some guy named Larry Bird was also at the game and got a standing ovation. 

-- Tom Brady is still new to Twitter but he tweeted about the Masters like a pro on Sunday.

Brady tweeted about the action on the course in Augusta and congratulated Tiger Woods after his big win.

Woods now has 15 major tournament championships to Brady’s six Super Bowl wins.

Brady’s teammate Julian Edelman was also excited about the Masters and Woods’ win.

Historic. -- #Masters2019

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "It's a tough place to pitch. You've got the Monster right over your shoulder, Pesky Pole, I don't know. I like pitching here. I wouldn't have signed here if I didn't like pitching in this park, that's for sure.” -- David Price, on pitching at Fenway Park
