already freaking out because the Bruins won two close games against the
Flyers to start the series, blew out the Flyers in Game 3 and then
couldn't finish them off in overtime in Game 4.
And you want to really drive Boston fans crazy? Remind them that the
Magic survived to win Game 4 in overtime only after Paul
Pierce lost the ball between his legs and couldn't get off a final
shot in regulation.
Hmmm, a booted ball between the wickets?
Sound like anybody you know, Beantown?
Could that have been Paul Pierce's Bill Buckner moment?
You know why panic is not prevalent in New England? Because our sports teams have DOMINATED for the past decade. Six world championships in 10 years. All that winning erased all the paranoia (and those tired Bill Buckner references, except from sports writers who have run out of ideas).
As for the Bruins, they were a soft, mediocre, injured-riddled team that was lucky to be one win away from the Conference Finals. The Celtics are the anti-Bruins.
The media obsession with Boston fans is driving me nuts. While Mike Bianchi is behind this pile of horse shit, our local media personalities are also contributing to the madness (Bob Ryan and Gary Washburn, to name a few).
I guess the only ones who can stop the madness are the Celtics.
