The Death of Boston Sports...

Well, it was a rough weekend for Boston sports fans. The Bruins were knocked out of the playoffs in an overtime game seven. The Red Sox lost two of three to Seattle (really? Seattle?). And the most crushing loss of all... The Celtics got dismantled by the Orlando Magic in game seven at home.

Basically, the Celtics simply ran out of energy. At this point in the playoffs, 5 of the top 6 players in terms of minutes played were the Celtics starting five. Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce have played in excess of forty minutes every single game of the postseason. Pierce has played 201 games since the beginning of last season, Ray Allen has played 190, and Rondo has played 185. The injuries that took the seasons of Kevin Garnett and Leon Powe forced coach Doc Rivers to play Brian Scalabrine, who was the 12th man last year, in key fourth quarter situations.

Now, I'm hoping for a Lebron vs Kobe NBA finals, which should be interesting television anyways...

    I'm not even that big of a sports fan and i'm disappointed. to quote the ginger, that was a rough game last night. oh well. We've been great the last few years, so our luck had to return to normal eventually.

    That is true. Although we don't have any winter teams left... But I think the Celtics went out with a bit of a whimper. I knew they weren't going to win it all this year (there's no way they would have beaten the Cavs without KG) but I wanted to see them go out in a more exciting fashion.

    Are you kidding? this postseason was one of the greatest in history, despite the fact that we didn't win. each series came down to the wire.

    that's exactly what I mean. The Bulls series was one of the best of all time. And the Magic series was also a very good one. The point I was making was that with all the buildup, the run ended in a 20 point loss that the Celtics never really came close to winning.

    I appreciate how great this run has been, but I just wish it ended the way it's been the entire way: a thrilling game with a last second victory.
