More than a feeling....

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 crazinessno flipping of BMWs or breaking glass windows. It wasnt an unsafe place to be. I just dont understand the correlation that people have between winning a sports event and rioting? Because seriously, I dont 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 theyd just wrap it up. Why isnt there the death penalty in Massachusetts?!?! Seriously.there are some people in this world that we are just better off without.)

That was a serious beat-down last night. You guys can't have all the championships!

I am seriously filled with joy today. My fave team (yes, even above the Sox) finally wins another one. I'm busting.

I didn't watch. Matter-of-fact I didn't even know they won it last night until I just now read your blog.
Good for the Celtics!

It's not a bad time to be in a Detroit either... The Red Wings just brought home the Stanley Cup and the Pistons had a great run this year until Boston beat them in the semi-finals!

I'm not a huge basketball fan, but I *do* know that the Celtics pretty much fell off the face of the earth in the 80s. Then to come back in one season! WOW
