When I walked in I found a Ticketmaster kiosk and I was able to easily print out my ticket. This was incredibly convenient since I didn't have to wait at will call.
I didn't walk into the souvenir shops. I wasn't going to buy anything, and I didn't want to mess up my Cavs karma. I was at the game to "ensure" a Cavs' victory. I'm lucky like that. I went to the concession stand and ordered my food, and that's when I heard someone call my name out. I looked and sure enough it was my crush of many years. I knew he'd be in Boston. I just didn't know that he'd find me before I told him where I was.
I went to my seat and looked up into the rafters. Here's the obligatory picture of all the banners.
FYI ~ I'm pretty sure that's Kevin Garnett's wife next to Beyonce...
The game was a blowout and the Celtics fans were not happy. Many of the Boston fans left before the game even ended (i.e. with over 9 minutes left in the 4th quarter the Cavs had already scored 100 points). The Bruins were playing the Flyers and that game was in overtime when the basketball game ended. The Red Sox has lost to the Yankees. It wasn't the best of days for Boston sports, but if anyone knows this city ~ you can never count the team "out"... It's not over, until it's OVER.
When the game was over Jay-Z and Beyonce crossed over to the side of the court where the Cavs' tunnel was and here's video (i.e. that I shot) of Beyonce, Jay-Z and LeBron leaving the court.
After the game, my Cavs fans and I went to Canal Street to celebrate. I learned what a LeBron Bomb was. Actually, I still have no idea what it really is, but it's something along the lines of a fruity shooter and throwing sugar up in the air (i.e. to mimic LeBron's pre-game ritual). It took a few stops, but finally we found a spot that would let us do it ~ but we had to substitute salt.
