I have a confession to make and seeing as how this is a safe space where nobody ever says anything mean, I need to come clean about something. I teared up a little bit when I hit send on that tweet this morning. The excitement I felt when I saw that tweet go through was unlike anything I have felt in the past 136 days. I'm not even joking. Maybe you think that makes me a loser and you're probably right but the Celtics are fucking playing today and there is nothing you could say that could bring me down right now. We've all wait so long for this moment that it doesn't even matter that this game is fake and doesn't count. We did it, we made it through to the other side of this hiatus and I don't know about you but I will be spending the majority of my day staring at my clock wondering why it isn't 5pm EST yet.
Now, in my opinion there's really only one way to get ready for today. I know people have been tweeting me about the hype video blog, but we're saving that bad boy for the real thing. Having said that there's no way I could leave you hanging this morning. I care about you and want you to experience what I have been experiencing all morning. So you know the drill, let's take it from the top and remind ourselves of what is coming later today. It's been a while, so I think you'll enjoy this jog down memory lane. Let's go (also, support the Timi the GOD who carried us all during this hiatus)
I don't know about you, but I'm ready to wildly overreact at anything positive we see today while at the same time ignoring anything bad because these games don't count. Those are the rules and it feels fucking fantastic to be back. We made it.
