I know, I know…it’s shameless. And, I don’t want to turn this blog into sporn (sport porn, naturally!), but I saw this bit in the Boston Globe and I thought to myself, “Self…is this something that you would want to read about on one of the other blogs of note that you frequent?” and my self answered, “well…I wouldn’t immediately close the box and go to another site, anyway...and plus – you haven’t even thought of what you're going to post today, which I find to be very irresponsible…it’s high time that you start taking things seriously in our life…” so, I interrupted and said to myself, “Self, unless you want to go right, here right now, I suggest you tighten your chops and let me finish writing this post!”
Look, the bottom line is that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the calendars go toward charity, and I’m all about helping others.
Which charity, you ask? Well, only the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, of course. You know…
Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation Mission Statement
The mission of the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation is to extend the reach of the Celtics championship legacy into our community. The Shamrock Foundation benefits our children directly, through programs that provide education & support. The Shamrock Foundation also partners with community based organizations that provide healthcare, shelter & vital services for children in need.
So, hate me if you will…send me letters (actually, send me emails and posts…seriously, you guys who have been visiting the site have been reeeeeallly quiet), but there are children in need and there is charity to be given!
The C's are taking on the Brooklyn Nets tonight at 7:30 in a grudge match so greasy and grimy that it's just dripping with the oil of vengeance! Or, you can look at it another way...game # 14 in an 82-game season.
In their previous meeting down in the House That Jay-Z Built, the C's were without the services of El Maestro Rajon Rondo, who sat with a sore ankle, and the Nets prevailed in a close game: 102-107.
Now, with both teams on a decidedly upward trajectory, it will be interesting to see what a little home cooking and a LOT of Rondo can do.
Oh, and by the way...you MIGHT want to dust off the ol' Tivo so you can have a record of tonight's game -- should the streak continue against the Nets, it will put Rondo alone in second place for most consecutive double-digit assist games, behind only the legendary, incendiary Magic Johnson.
LET'S GO C's!!!
