considering my daily commute now consists of a 20 second walk (literally), you are very much right about this. i feel like i'm part of a commune.

Of course USC is not a hated rival of any local team here in Boston. Its not a risk wearing SC gear, but stroll down Landsdowne Street on a Saturday night sporting a Yankee hat, a Canadiens jersey, waving a Lakers pennant and shouting "Jets rule", you might have a rough weekend.

It wasn't a matter of being a wishy-washy fan or not supporting 'my team', because 'my team' was out of the playoffs. It was a case of being a fan of the game. And Boston epitomized everything that is beautiful about the game. The Lakers did not. Not even in the games they won.

I think does a fantastic job of summing up how awesome it's been being a Boston sports fan lately:

I want to take this kid's sign away and burn it right in front of him.

My daughter has that beat...6 years old, 7 championships (her dad's a UConn alum). 9 if you count the Diana Taurasi titles. I think we should all take a moment to thank Eli Manning and the New York Giants because if they lost can you imagine what New England sports fans would be like?

Nobody outside CT does. But in the state there are rabid and I mean RABID UConn women's BB fans. You will find people, lots of people, who insist that the women's teams could beat the men. They hate Pat Summitt the way the rest of the country might hate a Pat Riley or Coach K...it's bizarre really.

The Sox are supposed to be having a pregame ceremony honoring the Celts tonight, apparently wearing the green unis. Should be cool.

Obnoxious?

Present company excluded, and I mean that, even for Hewson.

Oh that's totally what I was getting at. Young kids who didn't live through some of the crappy stuff are going to be entitled little snots sports-wise. The only people in the way of that are Eli and Grady Little.

in a skills competition they may be right... in a game, they'd be friggin crazy to believe that based on physicality alone.

Well, you have to be a little bit crazy to be that rabid about women's hoops in the first place, so they're 1/2 way home already.
