In which I take all the credit

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Yes, this is all about me. You're welcome.

So, back on December 31st, I aired some grievances. I felt better and many people felt better. Maybe that was all there was to it, ...or maybe, it was just the swift kick in the blog that this team really needed.

Fact: the Celtics are 5-1 since that article.

Oh, and for anyone that wants to spin some sordid tale about me "giving up" on this team or not being a good enough fan, allow me to quote myself from that same article.

Airing of Grievances - Happy Festivus! - CelticsBlog

I've been doing this blog a long time and I've steered this ship through many a storm. I'm a card carrying optimist and I'm not about to turn in my membership or give up on this team that has bought more equity in my heart than I can calculate. I will not, ...nay, I cannot give up on Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Rajon Rondo, never mind Doc Rivers and even Danny Ainge.

I die hard baby. This isn't a blind faith. I've seen these guys do it and I know they can do it again. But everyone needs a good swift kick every now and then.

You're welcome.

p.s. Ok, so a guy named Avery Bradley might have had a little more to do with it than me. But that's just picking nits.
