Extra! Extra! New Rules Biased Against Belligerant Boston Fan!



O’Neal got tagged with the first of three successive technicals against the Celtics for arguing with referee Zach Zarba. Across the court, Garnett was barking at referee Kane Fitzgerald, who hit him with one technical, then followed with the ejection soon after when Garnett continued to complain.

Garnett seemed stunned and smiled as he looked at the Celtics bench, where coach Doc Rivers motioned for him to settle down and leave the floor.

There I am trying to watch my Celtics (Go Green!) playing against the Knicks on MSG. Getting my Mike Breen & Clyde Frazier on. I walk away to grab a tropical fruit pop, and when I come back, Garnett’s gone.

They tossed KG from a preseason game?! Preseason? Not a regular season game. Not regular season. Preseason. We talkin’ ’bout preseason. Not regular season.

Tremble before Perk's mighty brow ridges!

Now you all know that I am honor-bound to support Kevin Garnett, Kendrick Perkins, and Nate Robinson no matter how dramatically they overreact to every single whistle in a game. It’s in every Boston fan’s fanaticism contract (you have to sign it if you want the 33 Larry Bird towel). You know who this new rule emphasis is clearly intended to screw over? The Cetlics? No. Not the Celtics. Me! The devoted Celtics fan who has to put up with this team’s inability to control its collective emotions and then has to argue with his co-blogger in favor of the childish ranting team. Do you know how exhausting that’s going to be? Explaining about Garnett’s passion for the game and the fact that Kendrick Perkins is a Klingon and naturally given to fits of rage. This persecution will not stand!

    Just imagine if Sheed hadn’t retired. Look at it this way, at least your two best scorer only make the sourpuss when they get jacked by the refs. Sourpuss was not on the list of newly T-able offenses.

        Oh and by the way, and I guess this makes things worse, Sheed is still living in Boston and hanging around. His kids are in school. There is a line of thought that he may want to do a come back in Feb/March………….sheeesh. If saying “and one” got him teed up last year………………………………………

        We should just go ahead and hire Barkley out of retirement and see if we could lose a game on nothing but techs called against our front court.
