Lis & Philip Celebration!

We went to San Francisco to celebrate the marriage of our great friends Philip and Alisa! We had an amazing weekend, saw good friends, did a super fun Anchor Steam brewery tour, and got to spend our last day with Shannu and John! And the wedding itself was gorgeous with a party that was an absolute blast afterward!

NBA Finals, Game 4: Celtics v Lakers

A Win. The Celtics tied the series back up to 2-2. With a 96-89 win.

These were our last tickets of the season.  Maybe our last time seeing Ray Allen in Celtics green.  Maybe the last time seeing Doc coaching the C’s.  Not to mention TA.  For sure Thibs is gone.  All these thoughts were hard to suppress while we were watching them play.  It was a fun game to attend – got to watch the Baby and Nate show, while Pierce had another one of his quiet nights captaining the team without much notice, but without him, no W.

On a fun note:  Jeannette’s Grandmother loves Nate Robinson; she always wants him to play because he brings such “spitfire” to the game.  She gets very annoyed with Doc when he doesn’t bring him in when she thinks he should.  When Nate was playing so long tonight, and so well, and we were all jumping and and waving our towels and yelling and screaming – Jeannette turned to her random neighbor seatmate at the Garden and screamed (to be heard above the din): MY GRANDMA LOVES THAT GUY!!!

Also on a fun note:  Our friends Barb & Jon flew out for the game – and even though their visit was short we had a GREAT time with them.  We even broke the seal on our BeerWorks boycott – it had to be done sometime, and why not with great friends?  Please come back soon Barb & Jon!

Celtics v Cavs & Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  We made that fun French Toast Casserole again.  So good.

We also went to the Celtics Cavaliers game!  Some of the crew who was in town for Philip’s shindig was still in town for the game, and they had tickets across the arena from us.  We had ridiculously good seats again.

It was an awesome game.  Such a good win (113-117).  And as our 12th and last regular season game we are attending, our Win Attendance Percentage is .500 – wow.   Their actual Home Win Percentage was .634… I could do a student’s t-test to figure out if our presence was statistically significant in its detrimental effect on the C’s.  But I will keep that to myself.  Let’s see what else can we figure out here.  We attended about 30% of the home games this season, that felt like a good amount – week night games are rough.  We have tickets to some playoff games we are excited about though!

Celtics v Rockets & A Gathering of Gs

This was our 11th game of the season. And a tough loss (119-114) especially since it was such a huge game for Rondo tonight.  He passed Celtic’s great Cousy for franchise record assists in a season AND he played an awesome game tonight (5 rebounds, 10 assists, 23 points, 5 steals).

So we had bought tickets for this game before the season started.  Then, our friend came out to celebrate his pre-weddedness  by gathering his boys together for a Celtics game and this game ended up being the night.  The boys got a luxury box that ended up being right across from our original seats and Jeannette and her friend took some paparazzi shots across the court of the guys night out.   It was a fun night, despite the loss.

And yay Rondo!
