"I am Sille Skrub. And I see a whole army of Celtics fans, here in defiance of David Stern's whims! We came to watch as free men. And free man we are! What will you do without Celtics basketball? Will you watch the Finals?"

"Two thousand fouls against Bron and Wade?" - the messageboarder posted. "No! We will not watch - and we won't miss it!"

"Yes!" I posted back. "Don't watch and you may be fine. Watch something else and you will live - at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here as internet geeks to tell the conspiring commissioner that he may take our away our season...

but he will never take away our love for CELTICS BASKETBALL!"

Let's do this. Win today.

(Hoping for a ref assignment that is favorable for the home team)

Enough about the refs. How about we stop people like Mike Miller, Mario Chalmers, and Udonis Haslem from killing us? I'm so sick of Heat fans here in Miami. Let's hope the 'Canes and Heat lose tonight.

It won't matter what kind of ref assignment we get if we don't see "good" KG tonight. One of the overlooked stories from the last game was how putrid he was on the boards and with his rotations.

95-93 Celtics

now I'm depressed.


Is it bad that I want Hollins to get ejected from the game as a result of levelling wade on a drive to the hoop, ideally on an offensive foul involving Hollins's foot to Wade's smug sneer (and/or groin)?

No. Because I want Hollins to be ejected for "inadvertently" snapping Wade's leg.

I'll consider this series a success if Wade suffers the fate of the Black Knight. Though considering his flopping antics over little to no contact, he'll never claim it to be just a flesh wound.

The mighty Toucher and Rich have created a Donaghy mask for fans attending the game.

someone should make lots of big posters of the shitty fouls from the end of last game, and really berate the refs with them.
Big posters of the Wade kick, and the Wade smack to Rondo's head, and maybe some good egregious flops too.

Seriously now, HOW does this guy have a job?

If the reffing does go the C's way in an egregious fashion, I'm just going to feel insulted. Like Stern and his gang of assholes think we're that damn stupid.


So here's hoping the C's just ignore everything and play well. And that Wade arm flies off into the stands.

What would happen if Rondo and Garnett started flopping and gyrating wildly. As in, to the point of obviously mocking Wade and James (ideally mimicking their flops on recent fouls in the game) but with just enough ambiguity?
Or even, on defense if Hollins or Dooling, as soon as W or LbJ gyrate, they did the same thing?

Would it be good theater? Or am I just an irrationally angry idiot?
