I posted it on Facebook last night but seriously, enough already. Much like Battleship that’s taking a dump in theaters right now, this movie is being crammed down our throats. I didn’t want to see your stupid fucking movie the first time I saw the trailer. Adding Coors Light into your commercials isn’t going to change it. Enough. The people that want to see it will, they decided that as soon as they saw Ridley Scott’s name attached. The rest of us are just annoyed.
Anyways, there was a basketball game in-between all the Promethues commercials.
When I got home the Celtics were up eleven and really looking good. It was somewhere near the beginning of the second quarter and I was happy to see that the team had found offense. Then I heard the announcers saying how Rondo was the big scorer and had 14 points in 12 minutes or something.
Then they went on to say how Rondo had played every minute of the game so far and that Doc’s gamble seemed to be paying off. The Celtics stretched the lead to 15 but that was shrunk to nine at the half.
Halftime had Magic Johnson saying that Dwayne Wade would wake up and when he did, the Celtics would need to watch out since their lead had already shrunk to nine. Ah, Magic the prognosticator.
You guys know me pretty well by now. I’m a fan of the Boston teams. If they’re doing something that’s pissing me off, I’ll call them out. That’s what fans do. Right?
Well, I can tell you that I don’t make dime one writing this thing. I do it for the simple fact of I like getting my opinions out there. So if you ever run into me in a bar and ask something that’s going on, I’ll ask you if you read the blog.
The fact that I don’t get paid to do this means obviously I have a real job. And come playoff time I need to make that decision – as the games start later and later – am I going to stick it out (like the Bruins last season) or am I going to bed? A lot of factors go into that decision like can I make up sleep tomorrow? How much is on my plate at work tomorrow? Stuff like that.
I tell you all this because as I watched the Celtics lead shrink to one and then turn into a two point deficit, I made the call. Fuck you Celtics. You’re going to lose. You abandoned whatever was working in the first half and the other team made adjustments you weren’t ready for. You’re going to lose and I need sleep.
I rolled over, flipped on the sleep timer and was out by 10:30. Only to wake up this morning and find out Rondo had a career game….in a loss. Had I stayed up, this column would have been SO MUCH more angry but because I got my sleep, I’m good. Glad I made my decision to roll over and fall asleep.
Miami is going to win this series. They may sweep, they may win in five. Six and seven seem so very far fetched at this point. Bottom line is that they will be sacrificed to the Spurs in the Finals. Print up your Texas beats Lebron shirts. This is what’s going to happen. This is how the big three is going to end. But if this is the Rondo we can see every night going forward, I feel so much more confident about the C’s future.
