Want to go to an All Star game? Root for global warming

I think going to an All Star game could be fun.  It would be a great weekend of cool events throughout the city… and the chance to see all of the NBA's stars in one place would be great. 

Unfortunately, if you want to actually GO… you're probably going to have to travel. Boston ain't getting one any time soon… unless global warming stops taking it sweet time and starts doing some serious work.

While Stern said cold weather is "not a deal-breaker," he also acknowledged warm-weather cities are more attractive to fans.

"I think there's a pattern emerging," Stern said during a news conference before Game 2 of the Finals last night.

"I
think that our guests seem to come in greater numbers to warm weather,
and that's something that we're going to have to face up to and deal
with as we seek to attract the largest number.

The Celtics haven't even put a bid together for the next available game, 2012 (LA was just awarded 2011), probably because there's no point in wasting all that time and money on something that won't pay off (note: also the story of Chuck's love life from 1995-2002).   I, for one, am going to do my part by buying a Hummer (I hear they're like five bucks now) and using it to do things like drive to my back yard.  If we can melt those polar ice caps in the next decade or so… we might be able to get a game around here.  We've got to do something… London is going to get a game before we do.

    Hate to break it to you, but Boston is by the Atlantic ocean. With the sea level rising, you’ll be diving to the all star game.

    Let me explain something, since yet again I have been called a ”faker fan” for absolutely no apparent reason…
    I think its a good idea to get rid of the anti-laker, pro-magic propaganda, why? becuause im a superstitous sports fan, and since you started doing it, issels army, and now pats army its nothing but lakers wins and nuggets/magic gag jobs…. it also attracts more lakers trolls, and rightly so, youre pretty much begging for it with a devil horned kobe on your homepage.
    I bleed green in LA has some serious issues by the way…I come here noticably ticked off the magic blew last nights game, and he will still call me a faker (or whatever immature laker slang) because I think this series is ovaaaaaa, and the offseason will offically be here in no time, but in the meantime, can we stop jinxing thew magic?

    I agree.
    And I love the C’s and this blog…

    We’re just having some fun. Just another way to jab the Lakers fans.
    ToTheRuins vs I Bleed Green in LA must fight in the school parking lot at 3pm.

    lol
    well, He cant get over that I am not a lakers fan, and im sorry, but its offensive to be called one…I was actually pretty upset the magic lost last night, and came here and vented about it a little, if anything I should be accused of being a ”tragic] fan….lol…

  • http://profile.typepad.com/redsarmy Red’s Army

    I’m not a superstitious sports fan. If you honestly think that my little photoshop job on our site banner cosmically made the Magic play poorly… then you either need to get your head checked or join scientology… because it doesn’t matter.
    I know a lot of people are superstitious about things… but I’m here to tell you that it’s crap. If we go back to our normal banner, the Magic won’t suddenly come back and win the series. Here’s a newsflash: The Lakers are better than the Magic. Maybe that has something to do with them being up 2-0.
    Come on guys… we’re just having fun here. Relax and enjoy it.

    I enjoyed watching Kobe get blocked,almost blowing the game with his stellar defense and watching Bynum be a force down low. I love this site and trolls don’t bother me, keep up the good work.

  • RedWouldHateThisSite

    You are so correct but don’t get your hopes up for the attacks against you to stop. The people that frequent this site have no respect for other teams or those that are critical against anything this site puts up. Like you said they are asking for trolls to come and disrespect them, but that’s what they want. Every time they get dissed they use it to justify they’re own actions. They need them so they can say our actions are nothing but what everyone else does. They have zero class. It appears the admins here are gods to them. Seriously rooting for Global warming so Boston could get an All Star game. Every year these fools call it a joke or some marketing crap but oh so wish they could get it in Boston. You are lucky they haven’t banned you cause many do get booted for having alternate opinions. They also think that, although superstition is part of all professional sports it’s simply ridiculous especially when they may the reason. Many ridiculed Bynum when he injured his knee and they even put up a post making light of Manu’s injury. It all came back to haunt the Celtics and their fans. They refuse to take any responsibility for the Celtics early departure. Ruins you won’t get any respect from a redsarmy reader cause they don’t have respect for the game our their favorite team apparently. Their idea of basketball is make excuses, blame the refs, and tow the party line. These people are nothing but Republicans. In the end this site will be 0-3 this year. Boston done, Nuggets done, Orlando done and after it’s all said and done they will come up with every reason why the Celtics didn’t repeat when everyone here would hate on any fan for doing the same thing. Ruins there are a few other Celtics blogs where they respect their readers and other teams. You should check them out not cause these fools want you to but because this place is not for serious fans…it’s Chuck E Cheese without the games.

  • RedWouldHateThisSite

    See Ruins…they think you are retarded…they don’t respect anyone and think they know everything and many will get in line right behind their gods

  • http://profile.typepad.com/redsarmy Red’s Army

    See.. that’s what normally happens when people are loyal readers to a site. They keep reading because they generally like what they read.
    No… ToTheRuins isn’t retarded… but I think the notion of superstition is a little silly. I don’t even think he’s a closet Lakers fan.
    And thanks for acknowledging that we are Gods. I’m sure people have figured that out because of our witty writing, amazing insight, and rippling abs… but it’s nice for people to get a reminder.

  • RedWouldHateThisSite

    Oh Ruins then they will deny that saying
    “If you honestly think that my little photoshop job on our site banner cosmically made the Magic play poorly… then you either need to get your head checked or join scientology”
    is disrespecting you and others that are superstitious.
    Deny Deny Deny Deny then say we are just having fun…then they will say you need to lighten up. Watch it’s coming soon.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/redsarmy Red’s Army

    Actually… we’ll pretty much just send you to the spam folder and move on.

  • BigMck

    I nominate this guy for the dumbest red’s army reader of all time.

  • Sal

    Dude. Paragraphs.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/redsarmy Red’s Army

    I will say… it doesn’t help Ruins that all the Celtics haters are rushing to his defense. Not that he can help it. Still… not good for his PR.

    You first-and tie a concrete slab around your neck too. Thanks.

    Wow-you:
    a)take things WAY too seriously
    b)need someone or something to misdirect your anger at and have picked this site/it’s fans
    or
    c)both

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p011570423591970b KobeWearsAPurpleThong

    What’s coming soon? HALEBOP..? lol..dude, you sound like a fanatic-but not the good kind.

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    Exactly

  • Danno

    ruins may be a tard, but he’s OUR tard.
    This Laker guy – wow. He obviously hates the English language. He keeps raping it like Kobe.

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    Fight…Fight…Fight! Oh to be in high school again.
    Just stop giving them so much love, this is NOT the site for that. Yeah, they’re good, we all get that. They were suppose to win it this year (and last), doesn’t mean I’ll support that nonsense. They are the ENEMY! You didn’t have to be alive in the 60′s or 80′s to know this rivalry and feel the hatred for either team. If you can’t grasp that, you just don’t know sports. Go Magic!

  • BigMck

    Post like this make me want to cry. I love our readers (except Tim FD).

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f6a54c2970c ToTheRuins

    I dont support the lakers, Im rooting wholeheartedly for the magic, but after last night, its inevitably there year, I can accept it and move on, at this point the banners, while superstions are superstions…theyre a little bit petty as well, because IN MY OPNION, we should be above that, move on and hope for the best for next season

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f60396b970c ThatGuyOverTheOcean

    Umm… LA would be underwater too I guess…

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f60396b970c ThatGuyOverTheOcean

    Second thinking: I guess David Sterd has never been in London in February, because it’s damn cold and rainy… I just wish they said: we’ll go to LA for $$$, we’ll go to London for $$$, we’d play anywhere for $$$. It would be much more honest.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156faf0b78970c Mauritz

    Hey, chill out guys. I’m not hating on Boston, just saying melting the polar ices wouldn’t help us getting the all-star game. I’m not from LA, I’m from Sweden, and a Celtics fan like everybody else…

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156faf0b78970c Mauritz

    Wasn’t that what Stern said? That they wanted to attract as many as possible (which is basicly the same thing).

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p011570423591970b KobeWearsAPurpleThong

    I hear ya’. Some of your comments were misleading I guess. Glad to see their are Celts fans all over the globe.
