Apparently, the Boston Celtics are in the process of holding auditions for the first ever Celtics Dancers. I find it depressing that the once great Boston Celtics - the team that held my full and undivided attention for over a decade, the team that once boasted Larry Bird and later had a chance to retain him as GM - are now so off my radar that I didn't even know that they had not yet started up a cheerleading team. I guess somewhere in my subconscious, I assumed they had already done it in a pathetic effort to divert attention from the utter lack of talent on the court...

...but now it's official. Mark this as the moment that the Celtics have
jumped the shark (as if there haven't already been plenty of moments prior to this). By creating a cheerleading team, Resident Genius Danny Ainge and other execs have officially decided that they don't have enough boobs in the organization. If Red Auerbach had any real power left, he would crush those responsible. Nowadays, however, all he can do is wait in earnest for death, so that he might begin rolling over in his grave.

Oh well, at least it gives us an excuse to look at hot babes in skimpy cutoffs dancing in front of decades-old Celtics Championship banners.

Failing to see the problem

[Looks at picture some more]

Still not seeing the problem

At this point, you could tell me what the problem was and I STILL wouldn't see your side of it.

I mean hey, don't get me wrong, if all you want to see are sweaty guys in shorts and tank-tops running around after a ball without any female eye-candy, well then, let your Freak Flag Fly.

Dammit man, how dare you think I would ever bemoan the prancing around of these scantily-clad women. I checked out every picture of the tryouts on the Celtics site, and I recommend that you do as well.

It's just that I grew up watching a basketball team of such magnificent purity, that it is difficult to watch that team mutate into a shadow of their former selves and a carbon copy of every other gimmick in the league.

Besides, I can get just as aroused watching a bunch of "sweaty guys in shorts and tank-tops," as you put it, WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP as I can watching hot, half-naked girls dance.

Crap, did that sound as gay I think it did?

Nice to see the Celts jump head first into the 20th century. If someone could just have this same conversation with the Jazz.

Okay, you just made my NBA favorites folder officially. Bravo. Booyah.
