Celtics Owner In The Boston Marathon!

21 04 2009

The 2nd game between the Chicago Bulls versus the Boston Celtics was really a thriller, and it was Ray Allen’s heroic that tied the game to 1-1. His 3 pointer in the last 2 seconds gave them the win, and the injured Kevin Garnett who only watched at the sideline slapped Allen on his head and chest, Doc Rivers shouting,”yeah…yeah!”

Me, as an avid basketball fan and a formidable player before and during my heyday, I used to be an MVP in our barangay and always in the Mythical Selection, if not chosen as an MVP. When I was injured in a Championship game and my right foot was cemented for one month, I decided not to play basketball again.

But I’ll always be a cager at heart! Now, as a runner and If I have time, I watch NBA games regularly at cable.

Back to that game between Bulls and Celtics…while it’s admirable to see them win as the defending Champion, it’s more commendable to know something about the MAN behind this team…

Did you know that the Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck was at the game after finishing the Boston Marathon earlier Monday in 4:16:49.? What a time for his age!
