Well That Was Too Close For Comfort

 NBA history has shown games like yesterday usually end up making you sweat at the end. This game was no different but it could have been. In a game where they jumped out to a nice lead in the first, I felt maybe we get a smooth ride to the final. Not true, the Heat clawed their way to being only down 6 at the half. 

The third the Celtics steadied themselves into another nice lead yet the Heat clawed back again. Going into the fourth it was way to close. Yet these Celtics grabbed the game by the horns and it seemed like it should be over. Instead of continuing to run their offense they slowed things down and allowed the Heat to get back into the game. Almost to the point where a Jimmy Butler three had my heart in my throat. 

Thankfully all the Celtics who have made their way to basketball heaven had other thoughts. His shot was short and the Wolverine salted away the game. This game was huge for this core to finally get over the hump of the ECF and make the Finals itself. The media wanted the Jays broke up and Marcus shipped off. Thank goodness Brad said NO! 

Going forward we need to keep running the offense even with a decent lead, especially against the Warriors. Hold your heads up high Celtics fans we have a team that was 11th in the East and are now Eastern Conference Champs! As Ime said we don't hang ECF banners, four more to go. Not gonna lie it was an emotional moment for me as a fan. This team has heart and grit. Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! 

PS Thanks Ma🍀☘️🏀 we need 4 more.

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

The Elm Street Nightmare

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.)  Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.) He  resided on Elm Street  in Townsend, Massachusetts 2.) He  kidnapped a woman  at gunpoint on  Elm Street, Pepperell , Massachusetts 3.) He was arrested and transported to Massachusetts State Police Barracks on Elm Street in Concord . 3.) He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. When evil and cleverness reside in the same mind, the stage is often set for true horror. Such was the case with triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante . As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and his two daughters as an unseen
