Joe is the sports & outdoors guy. This dude loves all Boston Sports, snowboarding and all that mess.
Boston sports man. It’s like a roller coaster. The highs and lows of this city are unlike any other.
Red Sox win the World Series, Patriots win the Super Bowl. Kraft gets indicted, Celtics suck, Bruins don’t make enough of a push at the trade deadline.
My point is, a lot of cities are either up or they are down for a consistent amount of time. Boston sports seem to be more like Connor McGregors career lately. Full of cocaine highs and lows.
Celtics are clearly on a skid coming out of the All Star break. Tough loss to the Bucks, followed up by an embarrassing loss to the Bulls, and then getting demolished by the Raptors last night. Celtics seem flat footed and demoralized. I’m still not worried.
2018 NBA Playoffs- Hayward’s out. Kyrie suffers an injury before the playoffs start. All seemed doomed for this Celtics team. Many predicted a first round exit for the Celtics. But they beat the Bucks in 7, beat the 76ers in 5, and then lost to Lebron in game 7 of the Conference Finals. We didn’t win, unfortunately, but they exceeded everyone’s expectations.
2018 Red Sox- best record in team history, best record in the MLB. And we still came into the playoffs as what seemed like underdogs. ALDS against the Yankees, who were coming into their own with a great rotation. And we slaughtered them. Astros, one of the most dangerous lineups in baseball and another great rotation, and the Red Sox rolled through them going onto win the World Series.
2018 Patriots- start of the season 1-2 with a week 3 loss to the damn Lions. The Max Kellerman’s of the world rejoice. “Brady’s Done”, “Dynasty is Over”, “Patriots won’t even make the playoffs”. Listen I even relied on TheHookEric to talk me off a ledge a bit. Fast forward to partying on Boylston Street celebrating ANOTHER Patriots SuperBowl victory.
Keep faith in the Celtics. They are from Boston. TitleTown. They will figure it out. The roster is full of All-Stars that is built for a playoff run. In the words of Kyrie “I still don’t see anybody beating us in seven games.”
