It was so great to watch the Celtics win the Championship last night.
I remember 22 years ago when I watched them with the “Sweet 16”. Back then, there was a rally at City Hall Plaza as opposed to a rolling rally. And so my friend Sharon and I took the first train into Boston, and we were there at 5:30 a.m., front and center for it all. We were interviewed by all the radio stations, television stations, the newspaper – it was awesome. I still have the clippings in one of my scrapbooks. We were officially the first spectators there – and it was such a great time.
There were no riots, no craziness…no flipping of BMWs or breaking glass windows. It wasn’t an unsafe place to be…. I just don’t understand the correlation that people have between winning a sports event and rioting? Because seriously, I don’t see the parallel.
It is DEFINITELY a great time to be in Boston!
(And this is a much better thing to focus on than the Entwistle trial, which seriously, I wish they’d just wrap it up. Why isn’t there the death penalty in Massachusetts?!?! Seriously….there are some people in this world that we are just better off without.)
