When asked, I proudly tell people I'm a Celtics fan. I'm starting to wonder if I am being honest with them or myself.
I certainly was a fan during the JoJo White/Dave Cowens days. No doubt that continued during the Larry Bird era. I've blocked out what Wikipedia refers to as "tragedy and decline '93-'98," and was excited when the "big three" joined the team for the 2007-2008. I watched a few regular season games, followed the season in the newspaper and on the web and then thoroughly enjoyed the playoffs. I watched fewer games last year, only glanced at the standings during the season and didn't cry when we were eliminated from the playoffs.
So, now basketball isn't happening - except our pickup games at the park - and I'm honestly not missing it. Is it the players, the NBA or is it me?
Maybe there's just too much stuff going on - the McRib is back, for example.
