Celtic Pride

Living in Boston means loving their local sports teams since EVERYONE is passionate about them. The Red Sox, the Patriots, and the Celtics. I sadly never made it to a Patriots game, but I did make it to several Celtics games during my stay.

One was back in March of 2006. I had received 2 free tickets from my adviser Peter and it was right after William and I had been on our first date. I was so nervous to ask him but I did and he sadly had something going on that night. But, he said that he would take me out to dinner another night since he wasn't available that night. That totally made my day because I knew that he might be interested in me since he set up another time to go with me. Instead, I took my friend Linda and we had a fabulous time.
We had a great view of the court
Needless to say, it was an INTENSE game coming down to the wire, but the Celtics pulled it off- winning by 1 point.
Then, in the fall of 2006, I went to another Celtics game, this time versus the Jazz. So many of my friends from my ward including my roomie Amy and good friend Lisa.
The theme was that we were supposed to root for the Jazz with the group but Dave and I were the rebels and rooted for the Celtics.
Sadly, our cheers were not enough as the Celtics lost to the Jazz :-(
Needless to say, I am SUPER excited that the Celtics are currently in the finals. I am even more excited that I can watch them on our own TV. The Celtics were rockin throughout the game leading by 24 points with 7 minutes left in the 4th quarter. I thought the game was in the bag and obviously the Celtics felt the same way because they totally TANKED. The last few minutes I was totally edge that they might lose since the Lakers came within 2 points. But, the Celtics pulled it off and they are now up by 2 games!! Woot woot!
