The Party’s Over-Cue the Theme from Rocky

Yes, baseball is over again, this time without a World Series Trophy party at Thom’s. There was a celebration, though. Phillies phans philled Prophessor Thom’s last night phor three innings of baseball that phinished with a champagne toast. Congrats Phillies.

Their party later moved up Third Avenue and rested right under my window for the next three hours where one fan refrained, “We are the Champions”, over and over again. His friend’s repeated response was “Yes we are.” The accusation that ice cubes were hurled at them from an 8th story window is thus far unfounded.

Now, to more pressing matters: The real champions, the Boston Celtics that is, came out of the block running on Tuesday night with a 5 point win over the Cavaliers. It took the Green a couple quarters to get it together after a very emotional banner ceremony. But, in the second half they took control. Bob Cousy could not be found for a comment.

The Bruins play tonight.

Sunday night at 8 o’clock the new and improved New England Patriots take on their arch rivals the Indianapolis Colts. Somehow the Matt Cassell led Patsies are tied for first place in the East. This will be a huge test for the banged up defense. I will admit that I thought that the Pats were better off starting Sam Cassell over Matt. In an effort to aid his team Coach Belichek has arranged to have an hour added to Sunday to help his team better prepare.


And finally-not to get all politicky-in a late bid to capture the great state of Massachusettes Mr. Obama has relocated his long lost Aunt to a housing project in Southie. The Obama campaign made the move some 20 years ago in an attempt to plant the seed for his 2008 bid, then someone forgot about her. The response from the McCain campaign was swift. The husband of Sarah Palin said, “Shit, I used to get hammered down Harvard Ave, in the 80’s at Bunratty’s. I might even have a couple kids there. Doesn’t that get us a few electrical votes?”

Trying hard now
it's so hard now
trying hard now

Getting strong now
won't be long now
getting strong now

Gonna fly now
flying high now
gonna fly, fly, fly...
