Celtics: Irish Coffee

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On October 4, 2010 @ 10:23 am In General | 1 Comment

Wake up with the Celtics and your daily dose of Irish Coffee …

In an appearance at the London School of Basketball over the weekend, Kobe Bryant claimed [1] he could beat LeBron James 1-0n-1 in his sleep.

“I’d win, I’d win” Bryant said. “That’s what I do. One on one is … that’s easy for me, you know. Playing one on one is how I grew up playing, it’s like my thing. LeBron is more like a Magic Johnson, he’s a great passer and plays an all-around game. At the core of me, I’m a one-on-one player. I’d do that in my sleep.”

That’s a bold statement, but I tend to agree. He’s arrogant, but his breakdown is pretty much spot on. So, what do you think? Could any current Celtics beat Kobe 1-on-1? I think Ray Allen could beat him in HORSE.

Why Boston hates L.A.

This is the most ridiculous story I’ve ever heard. So, the L.A. Times is doing a weekly series on its Lakers Blog community. Each writer explains [2] a little about himself, including how he became a Lakers fan. Well, this guy claims he was a longtime Celtics fan who became a loyal Lakers fan. I say that’s impossible.

“I liked winners, and they won every year–like the Yankees,” wrote Paul Hefti. “Following the Celtics, Yankees and Bruins seemed a natural thing to do. … I had moved to L.A. and the Lakers really got a hold of me. They were so clean, pretty, sunshiny–all things L.A.–and I was hooked. Getting beaten by the Celtics really started to kill me–my Boston family never forgave me.”

Is that the most ridiculous paragraph ever written in sports journalism history? No wonder Boston fans hate L.A. No true Celtics fan would ever become a Lakers fan. EVER. Anyone who roots for the Lakers and Yankees is called a fair-weather fan. Not a fan. And that’s the end of that.

Celtics idol?

Interested in singing the national anthem at a Celtics home game this season? Show up at the Hard Rock Café between noon and 5 p.m. today to audition in front of former New Edition member Michael Bivins, one-time American Idol contestant Ayla Brown and JAMN 94.5 personality Melissa. More info here [3]. Try not to pull a Roseanne Barr [4] or a Carl Lewis [5] while attempting “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Celtics SCVNGR hunt

Foursquare competitor SCVNGR teamed with the Celtics to allow users to compete for a pair of season tickets. C’s fans with Android or iPhones can use SCVNGR to hunt around Boston, completing tasks [6] at locations tied to the team. The fan with the most points by Oct. 22 wins a pair of season tix.

I’m not sure they thought of these, but I’d include: rub Bill Russell‘s beard, find the old Scotch ‘n Sirloin [7] and imitate this kid’s dance moves [8] step for step on a stairwell in Boston.
