More Mindless Stories on ‘sports’
Boston sports teams are on fire! Oh, and after the Celtics won the NBA finals last night I’m sure the Boston fans have set the city on actual fire. After not winning a championship since 1986, the Celtics humiliated the Lakers last night in game 6 of the NBA finals with a 131 – 92 win. Now I’m not great with “the math” but I’m pretty sure that’s like a 72 point difference or something. What was even better about the win was that the Celtics did it back home in front of an insanely loud crowd at the Boston Garden. I may have been watching in my apartment in NYC, but I truly believe that my viewership helped the Celts win it all. You’re welcome, Celtics.
David Ortiz (Big Papi), the Boston Red Sox designated hitter, was sworn in as a United States citizen yesterday at the JFK Library in my hometown of Boston. Congratulations, David. Now get your ass off to war! Oh, and see you at jury duty!
If you’re a regular reader of IBBB you know that while I live in NYC I was born and raised in Boston (hold all comments) and have been kicking myself for not being there during its sports rebirth. Between the Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics nothing makes me more homesick than feeling like the only Boston sports fan in a rival city. Anyway, people here usually hate when I post anything sports related so I figured I would just quickly share that in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Celtics smoked the Lakers 98-88. Like something out of a movie, Paul Pierce jacked up his knee and was basically wheelchair bound on the sides lines, but made it back into the game to score a couple of 3’s and push the Celtics towards the win.
Anyway, I may live in New York now, but I was lucky enough to be able to watch the game in Boston last night. There’s nothing like watching your team make history in your home town. Here’s what went down:
- Pats became the first team to go 16-0 in the regular season (sidenote, Yankees suck)
- Tom Brady broke the record for the most touchdowns in the regular season (last night he passed Payton Manning).
- Randy Moss broke the record for the most touchdown receptions in a season with 23 (Jerry Rice held the record with 22).
- The Pats scored a record setting 589 points this season (they beat out the Vikings who had 556 back in 1998).
The Giants put up a good game, but in the end the Pats won 38-35 and now have 2 weeks off before the real games begin. Bridget Moynahan also has 2 weeks to perfect her next attempt at cursing the Patriots. Nice try Moynahan. Nice try.
