Quantcast
Red's Army

A pump up video… and my pre-game speech to the fans

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

We stand here tonight in our green and white gear… perhaps reading on a cell phone at a bar… on a tablet at some Starbucks, or on a computer at home… as a fan-base hoping for history. 

We stand here tonight, as a diverse group of young and old… black and white… men and women… from dozens of countries…  united by a common love for a simple jersey, the franchise it represents, and the history that frames it.  

We stand here tonight, nervous even though we do not play. 

We stand here tonight as not just Celtics fans.  But Celtics ourselves. 

Tonight, we cheer for victory.  We will scream ourselves hoarse.  We will high-five until our palms are numb.  And we will, at approximately 11pm Eastern time, either celebrate a win and a highly improbable Finals berth…. or a loss that ends the season. 

And regardless of the outcome… regardless of what our emotions might try to make us do… we will accept this result with the honor and dignity that we expect of our team on the floor. 

Because that's what Celtics do. 

Celtics don't make excuses.  Celtics don't throw fits.  Celtics set the example.  

Ours is the greatest fan-base in sports because of these things. 

Tonight, we are all Celtics.

    “Celtics don’t make excuses.” – Except every game they lose, wherein they blame refs, every time.
    “Celtics don’t throw fits.” – Two words: Rajon Rondo. Nuff said.
    “Celtics set the example.” – For how to go down in a huffing, puffing pile in Game 7s? Indeed they do. Ask The Lakers, and as I write this, now The Heat.
    Bye Bye “Big 3″, you dirty sons of bitches. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass. “Celtics don’t make excuses.” – Except every game they lose, wherein they blame refs, every time.

    THANK YOU Reds Army for another great season of the best blog in hoops.

    Your boys haven’t won the big game yet, so you might want to hold off on the shit talk. Besides that, they have one more Celtic they have to get past. Kendrick Perkins. OKC is going to have their way with them. Bank on it.

    I couldn’t envy your life less. You actually sit around spending your time thinking about how to be a catty bitch about other teams and their fans. Yikes.
    Great run by the 2012 Celtics. Proud of our guys.

    I’ll be rooting for The Thunder, dumb ass. Nice off the mark assumption. Perk ain’t no Celtic anymore!

  • trytryagain

    It’s called sports, Mr. Golf Hat. Talking smack is part of the game. You may wanna look into some thicker skin.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/kristovar Kristovar

    Yeah, got the thick skin. Just don’t bother to use it on internet thuggery.
    Thanks, it’s a great hat! You should get one, too. Might distract from your personality.
