Within a crowd, the pushing, and yelling can be a bit much. Pulling together, and finding those who share the same thoughts, and ideals has become a priority. Strength in numbers is a comforting thought. In enemy territories can be intimidating, and fear rolled inside like the jelly in a doughnut. It's easy being a fan at home, and not dealing with the pressure of going behind enemy lines. But Celtic fans aren't worried about other fans in other buildings.
We have 17 banners, and countless legends that have put on the Celtics green, and white uniforms. We take that pride, and we carry it around wherever we go. I live in Laker country, and it's an honor to flash it in their faces. Even when the Lakers beat us. I don't mind the teasing, because at the end of the day we have the best franchise, and we've owned them throughout NBA history. For the past five years the Celtics have been a huge attraction around the NBA. When you watch many away games you couldn't tell by the crowd noise. You could only tell by the logo at center court.
The Celtics even had a huge following in LA at the Clipper game. The Celtic fans show the pride, and passion that is worthy to share. If it's not staying until the final buzzer in game six of last years Eastern Conference to chant "Let's GO Celtics"! When your team is beat to a pulp. You could say it's going into enemy territories cheering for your team.
The last Celtics game I went to was in 2008 when the Celtics played the Warriors only to lose at the buzzer by a Baron Davis jumper. The Celtics lost 119-117. Here are some photos of that night.
My favorite of the Big three together.
