We Beat LA!

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how incredibly awesome last night’s game was.  The Celtics beat the Lakers by THIRTY-NINE points, if you’re not keeping track.

After taking some obligatory photographs near the Garden, we tried to get in to several bars along Canal Street.  When we realized that wouldn’t be happening (Mayor Menino had apparently warned bar owners not to go over capacity, lest they face heavy penalties), we headed toward the North End and ended up watching from the venerable Cafe Paradiso on Hanover Street.

We finished the night by rallying on Canal St. for a bit until bottles began to be broken – that’s when I hit the Green Line and busted out of there.  Tomorrow brings a parade and rally – can’t wait.

  1. Okay I was rooting for Boston solely because they are east coast and no more. I am a NY fan at heart (Super Bowl XLI has been one of the best days of my life).

    And I have to say that I was rooting for LA in game 5 just so Boston could have a chance to win it at home. I don’t care much for basketball haha.

  2. You’re lucky I don’t like football, or I’d sic a bunch of rabid Bostonians on you for that comment!

    I wanted Boston to win at home too – so glad they did. It was an incredible final game! I’m just glad you’re sticking with the East Coast.

  3. Congratulations on several championship wins in Boston. It would be nice to see Toronto finally win something:-)
