Boston Celtics Open Game With A Football Long-Snap (Video)
With most sports fans in Boston probably trying to get football off their minds following the New England Patriots’ heart-breaking loss at Super Bowl XLVI, the Celtics decided to bring the gridiron sport back to the forefront for just a second at the start of last night’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Coincidentally, the outcome of their game would go on to bear a striking resemblance to Sunday’s game between the Pats and the Giants – two teams battling it out in a close contest that once again sees the Boston-area sports team end up on the losing end.
Sure, things may be tough within the Boston sports scene these days, but its not all bad. After all, they could be Cleveland.
Here’s a look at last night’s opening snap.
