On Tuesday as I was typing up my Boston Sports Tonight post, I thought back to Sunday night. Sox win. Bruins win. Celtics win. So as I'm making ridiculous predictions I said to myself "It can't happen again, can it?" It can. It did. The trifecta. Life was good. So after another clean sweep I just kept telling myself "Enjoy this while it lasts, Smarty."
We were experiencing an extreme rarity in Boston sports. The Bruins taking aim at the conference finals. The Celtics doing the same. The Red Sox are playing some damn good baseball. But you knew it wasn't going to last forever. Despite what we wanted and despite what the Boston Globe
And then the Red Sox lost in a heart-wrenching 12-inning walk-off nightmare. Then the Celtics, who had led the entire game, blew it and handed Game 6 to the Magic. And finally, the biggest blow of all. The Bruins lose Game 7 on home ice in overtime. Curtain.
How can three amazingly exciting games suck so hard? An extra-innings game, an epic basketball struggle between two very evenly matched teams, and a Game 7 overtime? How can you not enjoy that? But somehow, I didn't. We didn't. Maybe we should. While it lasts.
Go Red Sox. Go Celtics. Go Bruins.
