Thank You, Big BluePosted: June 18, 2008
Never been a big Celtics fan. Always rooted against them when they faced the Lakers and 76ers in the glory years, always wanted Jerry West and Wilt Chamberlain and later Magic Johnson to beat The Green.
In fact, I root against all the Boston teams. Didn’t always feel that way. Actually rooted for the Red Sox in the 1967 World Series — before I knew better. Kinda liked the Patriots before they got good and too full of themselves.
That’s why we need to thank the New York Giants. Without them, Boston has a clean sweep of the three major sports championships.
Big Blue View makes exactly that point in a blog called ‘Everyone take a second today’…..to thank the G-Men.
For instance, SBaker TheTouchdownMaker says: “If you have a fat friend named Bobby from Worcester that hasn’t yet taken the price tags off his Kevin Garnett jersey, thank the New York Giants today.”
I think I know fat Bobby from Worcester. Yeah, he’s the guy that still insists Frank Malzone had a better glove then Graig Nettles.
