as you may have heard, i am a fan of the nfl. i like the low commitment required of a football fan: one day per week is just perfect for me. and i have a certain penchant for my hometown team, a ragtag group of guys called the new england patriots. i have been known to go on about how this team is not from boston, they represent a region comprised of six states. if you don't like boston or boston fans, fine. but what do you have against maine? or vermont?
this is all to say that i'm not exactly a die-hard fan of boston sports. to tell you the truth, sox fans annoy. and as much as i don't care about baseball, i consider myself more of a fan of oakland and even kansas city than boston. hockey-wise i'm a fan of new jersey, of all places. what can i say, cool uniforms.
but when it comes to basketball, i'm a celtics fan through and through. when i was a kid and the celtics were winning titles, my dad and i would watch those games on the edges of our seats, ordering them to give the ball to bird already. similarly i hate the lakers. i don't care who their coach is or which spaniard is now on their team; i just hate them, they are the enemy.
although i don't follow basketball, i've always said that if the celtics are doing well in the playoffs i'll be watching. and this year we have the treat of the celts and the lakers in the number one positions in the east and the west. i'm ready for an 80s rehash, who's with me?
