Obligatory NBA Post

I'm not really much of an NBA follower (I'm more of a college basketball fanatic), but I was happy to see the Celtics win the NBA Championship last night.
The Big Three are enjoying the celebration

I definitely wasn't heartbroken for Kobe Bryant and the Lakers - they've won way too many times in my basketball-watching life, and I'll admit that I'm not your biggest Kobe supporter. The Celtics, on the other hand, were a team of guys trying to win it all for the first time. I think this is why I was really rooting for them.

After the game, you could see the relief and joy on each of their faces. I was especially happy for Paul Pierce, their captain, who has been a Celtic through some pretty rough stretches.

And how can you not love Doc Rivers? He is the epitome of what I love in a coach - a defensive-minded, team-oriented, class act.

Don't worry, I'll be back in hockey-mode tomorrow. Two days and counting until the Draft!!

And thanks to everyone for spreading the Goose-love. I promise, there will be many more posts like yesterday's in the coming months - there is always time for more Paul Gaustad loving in the blogging world.

In other random news: If anyone's looking for things to watch now that baseball is the only sport on TV, So You Think You Can Dance has started again on Fox (8 p.m. tonight). It's my personal favorite TV show, so expect some commentary when I get bored this summer. If you like Dancing with the Stars, check it out (plus, cute dancer boys are always nice to look at).

I think that is the greatest idea ever! I think our first dance should be the rumba. ;)
