I grew up in the 70′s during the era of Larry Bird and Kevin McHale and used to love watching the Celtics games on TV. Somehow though, I never attended a game in person. That changed this last weekend when I went to my first ever Celtics game.
My sister and her family were in town for the weekend and her youngest son is majoring in Sports Management at the University of Florida. He’s a Celts fan and wanted to see them in person, so we ended up going to the Celtics / Pacers game. Not surprisingly the Pacers won, but the game was pretty close throughout and was still a lot of fun. The final score was 102-97.
We sat in the second to last row in the balcony and it was amazing how high up we were. My wife was uneasy going up the stairs and didn’t want to leave her seat till the end because she didn’t want to deal with going down the steep stairs. Unlike the old Boston Garden, where I attended many a concert and couldn’t see the stage, it appears that there is not really a bad seat in the TD Garden.
