THE BOSTON CELTICS WIN BANNER NUMBER SEVENTEEN!!!


I'm exhausted. Drained emotionally and giddy like a six year old who's been up way past his bedtime after watching a fireworks show. I'll be writing more about what this championship means to me soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to post a brief NBA Promo called "I REMEMBER" that chronicles fan reaction from the day last summer when the Celtic signed Kevin Garnett and officially turned their last-place ship around.

It is for me a goosebump-inducing piece, because I remember being absolutely giddy when the trade was announced, and I knew we were getting not only a special athlete, but one of those rare personalities in sports.

Kevin Garnett possesses a unique and unmatched brand of intensity, a personal humility and a great sense of basketball history. He knew what winning a championship in Boston would mean to us fans, and he bravely accepted the challenge with open arms. He also changed the culture on a previously defensively-challenged squad, winning the defensive player of the year award for 2008 and leading the Celtics to the best single-season turnaround in NBA history. The C's went from worst-to-first and showed us all that, in Mr. Garnett's own words, "ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!"

I'll always remember the day we got Garnett. I almost jumped through the roof, because I knew good things were in store. Looks like my enthusiasm was justified...

Well dude, since I exulted at the end of the Super Bowl (not because the Giants won, but because the underdog team won what was arguably the most exciting and hotly contested Super Bowl ever by beating the unbeaten Pats), I have to give props to your Celts on their victory. One of pro sports' most storied teams, the Celts just absolutely obliterated the ever-smug Kobe and company. I can't imagine anyone less than 50 miles east of the San Andreas fault line is anything less than thrilled with the results!

When teamwork, dedication, and grit overcome cockiness, selfishness and the pervasive "I'm entitled" mentality of Kobe and company, you have to celebrate even if you're not wearing a shamrock. Go Celts!
