Celtics Miss Conference Finals – Blame Will Ferrell

Brian Scalabrine

Can you hear that?

(I’ll give you a moment to soak it in…)

(… Still soaking…)

(Isn’t this great? Just us friends, reveling in the moment. Good times.)

That was the sweet sound of Boston fans around the globe crying out in anguish. There are few things in life as pleasurable as watching a Boston or New York fan whine, squirm and bawl over an anguishing defeat.

If you haven’t yet, give it a roll in the hay. You’ll like it. I promise.

I can’t wait to read all the excuses Boston fans around the country will write. Especially those of a certain blogger in Los Angeles whose affinity for Boston sports jumped over the “borderline creepy” fence wearing nothing but cut-off jean shorts, a pink tank-top and gelled, immaculate hair with frosted tips, miles ago.

If he’s even man enough to write it. My bet’s on a podcast.

Can’t you just feel the, “If KG had been healthy…” columns and blogs being typed as we speak?

Writers can blame Kevin Garnett if they want. Or they can blame Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, or Rajon Rondo.

Or they can blame who I blame – Will Ferrell. It was either Will Ferrell or forward, Brian Scalabrine on the court. To be honest I had trouble determining which pudgy, undermanned white guy with the nappy red afro was out there wearing a Celtics jersey.

    Not only was it the fans, but it took Paul Pierce all of 47 seconds into his post-game press conference to start making excuses about the “It would have been nice to have everyone healthy…” Meanwhile, I never heard anything about Orlando missing an All-Star of their own in Jameer Nelson (not that their are on the same level, but at least they never even thought about making that excuse).

    You forgot to mention the fact that they could blame Doc Rivers and the fact that he was sweatier than Patrick Ewing after 40 minutes in MSG. I can already hear it now, “The sweat got in Doc’s eyes, and he couldn’t see well enough to call the right plays.” “If only Will Ferrell had given Doc his head-band, since he was the one who really needed it, the right plays would have been called and we would won by 20!”

    Glad to have the green gone, and can’t wait to see the upcoming collision of LBJ turning the corner on a pick & roll and elevating against Dwight Howard in the paint. I can already see the next ridiculous Sprite commercial upcoming!!

    Much like the Chargers the last two seasons, the Celtics where not going far with an injured (and out) Kevin Garnett. The Magic will lose in 5 with a game 4 win in Orlando.

    PS – Will Ferrell was amazing on SNL last week. A new Celebrity Jeopardy! made staying up late worth it.

    Brian Scalabrine looks more like portly version of Michael Rappaport a la MTV’s Rock ‘n’ Jock basketball games of yesteryear. Whatever happened to those, anyway? Implementing the 25-point shot and the 50-point rim that was about 30 feet up? That was some really innovative thinking. Dr. Naismith would’ve been proud.
