Celtics Crush Lakers
The NBA has gone "Green"!
For the first time in 22 years, the Boston Celtics won the NBA Championship over the Los Angeles Lakers 131-92 in Game 6 of the playoffs.
This was their 17th NBA title - the first since patriarch Ray Auerback won the first 16 for the Boys in Green. In the closing minutes of the game, the crowd chanted "Sev-en-teen" and "Beat LA".
Surely our beloved Auerback was proudly lighting a cigar in heaven.
Sorry, Susan, but the Lakers simply didn't stand a chance. If it helps, I'll lend you the saying every kid who grows up in New England learns from the time s/he is knee high to a grasshopper:
"Wait until next year."
No matter where we are and no matter the sport, there ain't nothing like a Boston fan. We chant that whether we win or we lose.
Love that "Dirty water, um, um, Boston your my home!"
