Aaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!!!!13 June, 2008
Last night, I was watching the Celtics-Lakers game. I’m not big on pro basketball, but I’ve been a Celtics fan all my life. My dad is from the DC area so I cheer for the Bullets (Wizards), the Capitals, the Senators (Nationals (and I wish, if they weren’t going to go with the Senators, that they had gone with the Greys)), and the Redskins. My mom is from Boston, so I cheer for the Patriots, the Bruins, the Red Sox and the Celtics.
I turned the game off midway through the third quarter. The Celtics had been trailing by up to 24 points, and were hanging around at about 15 to 18 points behind. So I turned off the TV.
This morning, (((Wife))) asked if I had watched the whole game. I explained. She said, “Wouldn’t it be ironic if they came back an won?”
Then I looked in the paper. The Celtics were trailing by one with four something to go in the fourth quarter. Damn. They made it a close game. Then I checked on ESPN Radio and discoverred the won. They won. Damnit!
The biggest comeback in NBA finals history and I, lacking faith (well, I AM an atheist), turned it off and went to bed. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!!!!!!
