And we're off. NBA Finals, here we come! Sever weather be damned.

Here's what my view will look like tomorrow night:

Go Celtics!

You already knew that. But here is something you did not know.

So Am I!

Yes sir! A friend and I got to talking on Saturday, and to make a long story short, this long-time Celtics fan decided to spend a chunk of his tax rebate check on a trip to Boston for Game One on Thursday night. I never thought I would get the chance to see an NBA Finals game in person, much less in Boston against the Lakers, so this opportunity was too good to pass up. Can't wait!

Pre- and post-game drinking spots are still being worked out, so if you have suggestions or want to meet up, holler at me.

Go Celts! Beat L.A.!

ESPN: Where bandwagon-jumping happens.

Fine, we'll be the underdogs. Apparently no one remembers 2004.

It feels so good to be able to say that again. It's been 20+ years.

Also, Rip Hamilton can suck it. Punk.

Whew.

  • Also in that article...Are United after Real Salt Lake goalie Chris Seitz? I hope so, Zach Wells has been an embarrassment this season.

United takes on the NE Revolution on ESPN 2 tomorrow night.

And don't forget about the USA v. Engerland friendly today at 3 p.m.

The Future Mrs. Leaf: "What the hell is up with that guy's eyebrows?"

Indeed.

Yes it was. And for all of Paul's incredible pull-up jumpers and breathtaking forays to the rim, perhaps his biggest play was stepping in front of LBJ and grabbing the loose ball on the Posey/Big Z jump ball.

And how about old man PJ Brown?

And Eddie House?

Wow.

This was a game for the ages. I've been known to throw the 1988 Larry v. 'Nique game on the DVD player on occasion. I hope to one day have a DVD of this game too, because I'd love to watch it again. And again. It was that good.

PP: 13-23 from the field, 4-6 from three, 11-12 from the line, 4 boards, 5 assists,
41 points
LBJ: 14-29 from the field, 3-11 from three, 14-19 from the line, 5 boards, 6 assists,
45 points

This is why people love Game 7.

In 2002 I didn't really feel like we had a chance to go to the Finals. That team was a charade that got farther than it should in a down year in the East. This year is different. For us to get #17 we may very well have to go through the Pistons and the Lakers.

I wouldn't have it any other way.
