You know… all sorts of stuff comes out when your team wins the title. That cartoon is from the latest Garbage Time All Stars comic up on Ball Don't Lie… which also features a Perkins eating contest and now that KG is number 1, all he's thinking about is number 2.
BostonSportz has dug up an old Globe 2.0 show in which Bob Ryan and Charlie PIerce say a lot of very wrong things about the upcoming season. It just shows no one ever knows anything ahead of time. And to be fair, the C's hadn't signed Posey or House yet… so we had no idea that the roster was filling out with solid shooters… and we had no clue what kind of team defense the KG/Thibodeau combination was capable of.
BrewHoop asks would win if the Celtics played Team USA? The top 4 results right now are Team USA in 4, 5, 6, and 7. I said Celtics in 7… but that was a blatant post-championship 'homer' vote.
By the way, The WhatIfSports computer picked Celtics in 6. Like I said… when you took the emotion out of it and looked at that series objectively, the C's were the obvious choice.
Did I post the newest "You Got Rondo'd" ad? Either way… here it is… L.A. Got Rondo'd:
We love Tommy… and we're pretty happy that he got a chance to celebrate one more title with the Celts. So is reader Jesse Haley… who sends in this very nice photo of Tommy at the parade.
Fitzy sends over his latest Wicked Pissah Webcast…. the Celtics championship edition:
Check out his website, Townienews.com… pretty funny stuff.
Here are a few photos from the Celtics being honored at Fenway:
By the way… Pierce fired an 80 mph "ceremonial" first pitch that got past Jason Varitek.
