The Pursuit Of Banner 18 Officially Begins Today

Congratulations to you for clicking my favorite blog of the year. I would like to take this time to warn you that if you fancy yourself a fan of this team then what you are about to watch is going to make you feel a certain way. There have been reports of people not being able to contain their excitement and we here at Barstool Sports are not responsible for any walls in your home or office that may be run through. Others found that they had a rather gigantic erection (or lady boner!) that lasted way longer than 4 hours. These are just some things I want to make sure you are aware of before we keep going so you can make an informed decision as to whether or not you click play on these things. I highly recommend it, I've been riding this high for about 48 hours and lemme tell you, it feels fucking GREAT to be back. 

Come join me, won't you? Let's begin

OK I want to check in on everyone quickly. We doing OK? Just remember, don't forget to breathe

Still doing alright? Because we aren't done just yet

(I couldn't not put this in when we're all getting hyped right now)

I don't know about you but my blood is PUMPING. This is where I imagine any Sixers or Bucks fan out there that clicked on this blog for some reason will talk about how the Celts have no chance in the playoffs and blah blah blah. You think I'm scared of you? You think I'm scared of postseason failure and pain? Buddy, my entire Celtics fandom was built on pain. I was born in it, molded by it. This team has hurt me in ways you couldn't even imagine. Game 7 losses with a title on the line, Game 7 losses at home, 2002, Lebron's Game 6, whatever last year was, we know hurt. Here's the difference between us though. I've seen this franchise reach the top of the mountain. We know what it takes. We're entering a situation with a ton of unknowns that is completely unpredictable. But you know what I do know? I do know that the two Jays are one of the baddest duos in the entire goddamn league. I know they have as much talent as any contender. The more I see opposing fans in the comments just solidifies their fear to me. You don't want this team to be good, it kills you that they are good, and you're just going to have to deal with it.
