Blog #2, NFL is back & Celtics make it to conference finals– Although I’d rather be in the nosebleeds freezing at Gillette stadium welcoming the Patriots back for their season, watching the game on a mac book on the floor of a college dorm will have to do. Oh how we missed you football! Even without Tom this year the Pats managed to pull of an opening game win against the Dolphins, initiating new quarterback Cam Newton to their offense. NFL Sundays won’t be the same this year because of limitations to parties and bars, and no stadium fans, but the fact that some places down south are allowing fans gives us hope!
The Celtics beating the raptors in game 7 on Friday night was a very exciting game to watch. I can’t imagine them winning the championship this year, and how excited everyone is until they remember that it is highly unlikely that Boston will allow a parade. Us New England fans will always manage to find our ways though. I look forward to watching them this next round starting on Tuesday!
Blog #1, Boston Celtics playoffs round 2– With the Celtics going 4-0 against the 76ers in the first round, lots of fans thought that they were going to have it easy in round 2, the conference semifinals against the Toronto raptors. In the first game, they came out flying with an easy win, and it looked like from there they would have that round in the bag. Unfortunately the raptors have won 3 games since then, and the series is now tied 3-3 with a double overtime loss for the Celtics in game 6.
Boston fans have a thing for being too cocky, considering all the big wins we’ve had in recent years. Hopefully the Celtics give us another reason to be!
