12 Days Till Christmas In Orlando

The Celtics have already given us a gift in this 10 game winning streak.  Concerns over the team's slow stretch have been put back on the shelf in the back room next to the panic button and umbrellas.  Rumors of our window closing prematurely were greatly exaggerated.

Still, call me greedy, but I want a little more.  I'm looking forward to one game in particular 12 days from now.

Last year this team had some similar themes that were concerning.  The team ran over lesser teams but hit a brick wall against the Lakers and staggered through a rough stretch.  They got their mojo somewhat back down the stretch but we don't know how good the team could have been with a healthy KG in place.

The Magic beat us in November, which appears to have motivated the team to step it up a notch.  They haven't lost since and they get their chance at revenge on Christmas day.  I want that win.  I want it badly.

Still, we've got another 12 days to go, so lets bide our time looking forward at the schedule with a (slightly modified) old favorite tune.

On the 1st day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a game against the Teddy Bears in Memphis.

On the 2nd day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a three day break to rest weary bones.

On the 3rd day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a full practice to work on rebounding.

On the 4th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, another practice to work on the finer points.

On the 5th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a look at the wrong Answer to a question that was never asked.

On the 6th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a day off to do some Christmas shopping.

On the 7th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a chance to catch up with some old friends in from Minnesota.

On the 8th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a chance to be thankful for the special team we've got.

On the 9th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a visit from Grandpa Larry Legend.

On the 10th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, more rest and home cooking.

On the 11th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, a silent night and chance to reflect.

On the 12th day of Christmas, my Celtics gave to me, revenge!

Ok, that last one isn't exactly in the spirit of the season, but hey, I wish the Magic players and organization all the blessings in the world, as long as those blessings don't extend to the basketball court.
