Well Hello There, Stranger

I just woke from a deep, deep sleep. Months of sleep. That's, um, why I haven't been posting here. Yeah, that's it. And I couldn't have timed it any better since tonight will be the first preseason game. I'm looking forward to seeing how KG moves. A skinny Perk. A bulkier Big Baby. And my new crush - Rasheed. I somehow find myself sighing every time I look at a picture of him.

Our season tickets came on Friday. Rasheed is on them. They are sweet looking tickets. I'd post a picture but, like I said, I just woke up after months of sleep and have a lot to catch up on. Like getting my hair back to green. And wondering if Balcony Baby, who is now three, has outgrown the name and if I should call her something different now.

Speaking of Balcony Baby, she and Balcony Princess are getting to go to the preseason game on Friday. Both girls have been to games, somewhere in this post you'll get a little TMI about me, but this is the first time they'll have gone together. I'm thinking it's going to be a banner night for the Balcony Family. HOLY CRAP! I just now understood why they say "a banner year." Wow, guess that long sleep was good for me.

Ohhhh, it's almost game time. Is anyone else as freaking excited as I am that the season is beginning????

May You Have Peace

It is with a heavy heart and teary eyes that I write about the beloved and fiery Helen Heinsohn's passing. The "red head from Needham" is Tommy's wife and soulmate. It is hard to imagine what that strong man is going through right now. The Balcony Family extends their thoughts and prayers to the Heinsohn family and also to those who have had the pleasure of knowing Helen.

People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. It is as though they were traveling abroad. ~Marcel Proust

Happy Birthday Kendrick Perkins

Today marks Perk's 24th year. In tribute, Balcony Guy is expressing his wishes while wearing one of his favorite t-shirts (PLEASE NOTE: you'll need to click on the photos to get the full view. I'm experimenting with photobucket. So far me no likey):

And I couldn't let the day go without adding my own HAPPY BIRTHDAY greeting. Unfortunately I'm still trying to get out of trouble for this October 31st debacle:

I was merely trying to get down to the court to give Perk an early birthday hug because I knew I wouldn't be in my seat tonight (have a blast, Suldog, and watch that voice!). It's not like I was stalking him or anything.

Well, I hope your day is fabulous and involves lots of cake, Kendrick. As you get older remember that some things never go out of style - Birthdays, Basketball, Banners and BEASTING.

Cheers (and a hug).

Balcony Quote of the Day

On a day when our nation is turning out to vote in record numbers and everything revolves around the election, the Balcony Family did their part, walking the dog to the polls and casting our votes.

Upon waking this morning I told the clan how excited I am about this day and about the changes our nation is about to undertake. Balcony Guy said he, too was very excited about the day.

"The Celtics play the Rockets tonight! Woohoo!" he said.

Balcony Baby looked at him with complete confusion and disbelief, "Noooo wayyyyy. The Celtics can't play basketball in the sky."

Baby, you may be wrong. I think these boys may be able to fly. But you are a dang cute 2 year-old.

Anybody Seen My Muse?

I don't know what's going on but I seem to have misplaced my ability to write blog posts. I'm sitting on some fun facts and pictures from the game on the 31st but I just can't seem to get it together. If you have any advice or something inspirational to share (the funnier the better b/c, let's face it, I'm motivated by humor) then I'd appreciate it.

For now I'll put up my picture of the best costume of the evening. Balcony Guy wanted to go to the game dressed as Brian Scalabrine but the timing was wrong (as in last minute) so I was thrilled to see that this guy did it up right. Here he is doing the Scal Slide and then the best Scal face I've seen outside of Scal himself. I give him the best costume for Halloween 2008 Award. 80 Balcony Points for that one, too.

And here he is with his friends who also did a great job of dressing up.

I hope the these guys come by and see their pictures. I did something I rarely do and introduced myself, "Hi, I'm Balcony Gal. Can I use your pictures on my blog?" They said I could but who knows if they will remember since they were two fisting and having a blast.

OK, off to look for inspiration. Anyone? Anyone?

Getting Creative

For the 2008-2009 Celtics season I'm going to get all of my creative juices for my blog from this company. If you know of a better one then fill me in.
