Lucky 17.

                                    photo from ESPN.com
The Boston Celtics won the NBA Championship! The Boston Celtics won!  I can't believe it.  I am so happy; partly for the Celtics and partly because now I can return to normal sleep habits and go to bed at a decent hour!

After the game was over mom and dad took Riley and I out for our last walk of the evening. Since we live VERY close to the arena where the game was played we ran into A LOT of happy people.

We first ran into this crowd by the Red Auerbach memorial statue in Faneuil Hall

Then we met up with some nice people eating grilled sausage from a nearby vendor.
We were even offered a bit of their sausage - I wanted a little more than just a bite but mom said that was rude of me.

Lots of drunk people wanted to hug me...umm...ack!...I am having (gulp) some (gulp) trouble breathing...can you lighten your grip a little? Gasp!


Since it was getting late (and the crowds were getting dangerously out of control) we went home
Time for all kitties and doggies and humans to go to bed
Notice that I am still guarding my Sniffany's box
Oh but wait! I can't sleep because the horns are honking! and honking! So I will leave you with this YouTube video of "Gino" the American Bandstand phenom and his booty shakin' video that is a new tradition in that it is played when the Celtics win



Addendum:  On a sad note...our friends Pacco and Groovy just lost their beloved friend Bank; a 3 year old Golden Retriever.  Pacco has written a beautiful poem and Groovy has posted a terrierific tribute to their friend. Please visit them. woof. sniff.
