My Sport's Happies

Anybody that truly knows me, knows that I love my New England sports, along with my bit of passion for Nascar, which I picked up living in Daytona Beach all those years ago. Sports make me happy and it creates great conversation where ever I go. Like I said before, I love it! Right now some great things are happening with our New England teams. The Boston Celtics are in the playoffs against the Los Angeles Lakers. BEAT LA!

One of my favorite New England Patriot players, Wes Welker, is back practicing after a serious injury last year, that could have kept him out of this upcoming football season. But, he is tough, and seeing him practice is making many a Pats fan very happy!

What can I say about Tony. He has been my favorite Nascar driver ever since he started and he has come so far over the last 10+ years. Really haven't heard much from him this season. He has been pretty low key. His 3rd place finish at Pocono this past weekend was almost as good as a win. Go Tony Go!

Got to spend time with Steve and some old friends at a local sports comedy show this past Saturday night. It was hosted by my favorite 'New England Sports Nitwit' Fitzy (aka Nick Stevens). He really is the best. A very funny and all around great guy!

Since it was a 'Fenway themed' comedy night, they were playing the Red Sox game before the show started. I loved that one of my favorite players was pitching that night, Grumpy (aka Jon Lester). He is awesome! This is a pic of a print a local artist painted of him (that I saw online). I am trying to get my hands on a copy of it. Ain't it cool?!!

I have to say that I am very lucky to live in a great sports location. Fenway, the Garden and Loudon are all within an hours drive. Sometimes getting tickets is tough, but when I do, it is always a good time. Love My New England sports!
Go Celtics!
Go Sox!
Go Pats!
Go Tony!
Not necessarily in that order...LOL!
