The abyss opens beneath our feet, the horrors lurk within the gate of our personal hell. I carry seeds of hate within my heart. James brings out the worst in me. I go to dark places when he beats the Celtics. It goes all the way back to his Cleveland days. I would like to hold my head high tonight, and it's hard to do. I feel for Jeff Green who had the best game of his career tonight with 43 points.
When the Celtics had control of this game for at least a good 40 minutes Monday night. I thought I would wake up with the sun dawning with the prettiest yellow, and a breeze that spread perfume of the best flowers. The flutter of birds and bees awakening fragrant blooms all around me. Instead I'm very tempted to get drunk, and perhaps wake up in my next door neighbors yard. Instead of jumping the gun on a destructive path. I want to pull myself outside. I want take every ounce of good from this game. True love is the agony of the mind, and a true love of mine will always be the Celtics.
The Celtics fans were great tonight. They chanted "Jeff Green" at least four times Monday night, and against the Heat it means something. It gave me chills, much like game six last season when Boston fans hung around, and chanted until the buzzer sounded. "Let's Go Celtics" was the battle cry, and tonight it was Jeff Green who stepped in for an ill KG. The Celtics should have won this game, and maybe you want to blame the refs, and maybe your a fan who points to the 20 turnovers. I think the Celtics have the Heat's number when healthy. The defensive anchor was out tonight. I'm not upset with this team for allowing the Heat to win by two points in the final minute of the game.
I feel good about being a Celtics fan, and I feel good about this team. They had the Heat's number all night, and I think the Celtics hurt themselves, and I think the refs were poor all night. That tends to happen when you have James on the other side. I'll try and move on from this heart breaking loss. Two things remain in my heart. My love and pride for the Boston Celtics, and my hate for James. This loss hurts the Celtics seeding, and maybe their chance at the Atlantic title. But I guess we already know that the Celtics don't care where they land in seeding. That comes back to their pride. They have pride, and Celtic fans do as well.
