Like I told you on Friday, I had a gig Saturday. My call time was four and with the wedding going till midnight there was a pretty good chance I wouldn’t be home till 1:30am. So watching the Celtics wasn’t going to happen (the way I wanted anyways).
Now in a true reflection of how much technology has advanced we’ll recap. You used to get a text that your team won. Then you could get scoring updates texted to you. With the web on your phone you could check scores when you wanted. They added the ability to watch highlights with your scoring update. But they had one more step…
Watching it live. Streaming it live on your phone. There were two tables of a dozen or so guys huddled around their phones watching the game during a wedding.
We checked our phones when we could. Saw the C’s up a dozen or so but it was just checking. When we were tied heading into the fourth, the iPad that was being used for charts all of a sudden became a TV to watch the game.
And it was all downhill from there. The Celtics, much like they did in game six, went cold. Meanwhile Lebron was driving the lane like it was his job. To the tune of a 20-4 run to close out the game. I even saw Bosh drain a three just to add insult to injury.
And like that, the era of the Big Three finally ended. Two years too late.
I still contest that if Danny never made the Perkins trade, the C’s get more than one title from this group. I’ll believe that my whole life.
Brando (our resident Laker fan) was quick to point out that the rebuild is starting. Yup. All we as Celtics fans can hope is that it will be a quick turnaround.
With only the Sox to occupy the Boston sports scene for the next three months it’s going to suck. Two game under .500 and in last place tends to make for a sucky baseball summer.
Can’t wait for the Pats to start.
