I should probably say something about last night’s Stones-Celtics game, which I attended.
Let me first mention my seats:
We were in the “promenade” section, which is (at the same time) very inconvenient, very comfortable, and very far away from the hoop. It’s the highest point in the arena, and only accesible via the elevators, which is a pain. But once you’re up there, you have tons of space to roam and there’s about ten people for every toilet. Probably the most favorable person to toilet ratio of any arena section in the country. It’d be a perfect place to bring about 50 friends, because there’s only one row of seats and you can get up and talk to anyone else in the section at any time.
Also, if you bring an out-of-state ID, you have to be 25 to buy a beer. Lame action.
Back to the game: I don’t want to talk about the game. The Pistons were off all night, and despite making run after run after run, and continually making the game close, they’d then cool off and stop playing good basketball. They took terrible shots all night. Sheed kept us in the game for three quarters, though KG was even better.
And Rajon Rondo was really the difference, the same way Big Baby Davis was the difference last time. The Celtics just added SamIam and PJ Brown. They can only get better. We’re going to have to play really good basketball to beat them in a series.
