Im just glad I could help point that out.
I dont think you proved anything other than the fact that you are obsessed with Boston.
Seriously, SD's doesnt know what he is talking about. The Celtics did own the town/region in 1986 and the reason everyone was at the Garden that night was because it was a playoff game. Its common sense, attend a playoff game and watch one of the best teams in NBA history or go sit in the stands on a cold night in April and watch the Sox play Seattle. Most Celtics fans were/are probably Sox fans. I think too much is being made of this one night. I dont think you have uncovered anything out of the ordinary. Also, the Pats were not ahead of the Sox during that time. They might not have been ahead of the Bruins.
