I felt a lot of emotions after Tuesday night's win, but relief was not one of them. Less than 24 hours after we bulldozed the Cavs, I'm now coming to the realization that game 6 is a must win for C's.
Tomorrow night may be the last home game the Big Three have together. I won't bore frequent readers of Celtics Blog with all of the reasons why this team is monumental in keeping the Celtics legacy alive, because you already know all the reasons.
Instead, I am writing this post to plead with Game 6 ticket holders to make Thursday night's game the loudest in TD Garden (Shawmut Center, Fleet Center, TD Banknorth Garden, whatever) history. Boo Lebron, chant "How's your elbow?", and most importantly, cheer for our boys... even when the Jumbotron isn't telling you to. Let's do everything we can to make sure the Big Three have a slightly extended stay here in Boston.
I'm not talking to Aztec Gino, Balcony Gino, Sweaty Kid or any other variation of a fool dancing to some top 40 song for the camera. Instead, imagine yourself in the smoke-filled, steep-balcony of the Boston Garden (the real Garden) and do something that would make Red proud.
This year is the last to cement the legacy of the Big Three, let's make sure they do it in style.
