Happy Anniversary

Where were you when the walls of Jericho fell?  5 years ago today your Boston Red Sox won their eighth straight play-off game and took the 2004 World Series in grand fashion.  So, Happy Anniversary!

I remember I was at a bar in the West Village with a few friends finishing up a party that had begun more than a week before.  The streets filled and the cops came and I’ve felt pretty good ever since.

It’s not easy to commemorate a day such as this; almost all efforts would seem insincere.  We’ll try anyhow. The traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is wood. So, I asked the NBA to have the Celtics tip-off their season on the hardwood against the Cavs.  Not bad huh?  Come in  and support the Celts and talk about your 2004 story.

Tonight at 7:30 your Boston Celtics will take on the LeBron Cavaliers in LeBronton, Ohio.  It should be a LeBronian night for all as the LeBron LeBron Lebrons the Lebron.  Got it? The NBA is dying to make this the LeBronba, but a healthy Garnett and a psychotic ‘Sheed should have something to say about that.  And, if Pierce decides he’s going to try and not just walk around and fall like he did against Orlando last year, watch out! Get there early for your seat.

And speaking of getting there early, don’t forget “The Sports Guy” Bill Simmons will be in the house tomorrow signing copied of his new book, “The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to The Sports Guy

Through the years, you've never let me down
You turned my life around, the sweetest days I've found
I've found with you ... Through the years
I've never been afraid, I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed, right here with you
Through the years
