Well, it's that time of year again. The preliminaries are over. Any humor is still funny but seems superficial.

This is the deadly serious time. The time to stand a little more erect, to make your eye contact a little more direct. The time to convey to others the realization that screwing around will henceforth be held to a minimum. The time to remember past championship years in preparing for the rock-in-the-stomach inevitability that will very likely become a frequent companion from here on out. The time for hope to turn to expectation. The time to focus, focus, focus on nothing but overcoming any barrier to victory. The time to recognize no alternative. The time to address every challenge not with the words, "Can we....?" but rather with, "How can we...?"

Based on some pretty convincing experience, this is pretty much how I think the players are feeling. They may indulge in small talk. They may even crack jokes with the media. But all of that is a facade. What they're really feeling is a constant, intensely burning urgency.

I figure that, if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me. I've played my Russell Celtics Championship intro song (you can hear a representative portion by going to http://www.amazon.com/Eileen-Irish-Have-Great-Tonight/dp/B000QVHPLK and listening to the sample for free). I'll be with friends until about 8:00, and then I'll be alone—just concentrating with cold fury and getting ready to do basketball battle (thank you Johnny Most).

I'll warn everyone in advance that, although I usually like to joke around on the Game On Thread, tonight I'm much more likely to be totally focused on how the Celtics can win this game. And then I'll do the same thing during the next game, and the next, and the next, etc. Because this is the deadly serious time.

So you can pretty much say goodbye to happy go lucky Sam, who will be replaced until further notice by Game Face Sam.

Go Celtics!

Celtics and their Fans,

Good luck in your quest for another trip to the NBA Finals. I am, for at least the next 4 games, am in your corner. I admire the Celtic's heart and unselfishness. Two traits lacking that significantly contributed to ending my team's run this year. Give the South Beachers everything you got. Again, good luck tonight and for the series.

Thanks Pete. It has been awhile. At least I'm on mutual ground right now with the Celtic faithful.

Sam, you mention constant, intensely burning urgency and it made me think about a story about Bill Walton facing the Lakers and Kareem in a 1986 regular season game. Larry was amped, couldn't sleep well and got up early in the morning and decided to go to the Forum around 8 am for what I think was a late afternoon game. When he got to the locker room he found Walton already there in his game uniform with a look on his face that could kill pacing back and forth.

Needless to say the Celtics won that game, and Walton had one of his best games ever in a Celtics uniform. I get the chills just typing this thinking about that desire to win, and if the Celtics dig deep in this series, and the next, another glorious chapter in a storied history will be written.

Here is my choice for pre-game music, please note it must be played extremely loud.

We're off to the witch
We may never never never come home
But the magic that we'll feel
Is worth a lifetime

The last in line
see how we shine.........

Cow, speaking of amped. I really do not like either Wade or Lebron and sending them packing will be awesome.

Bob, I agree. Wade and Lebron has suddenly turned me into a huge Celtics Fan.

It is amazing that two of the most talented men in the NBA have so many people disliking them. I know we are Celtic fans, but I read all kinds of stories all over the internet, and they definitely have alot of enemies around the league.

Wade had shown in the last two meetings he couldn't go off on Avery Bradley, if he pulls Rondo down again Rondos got to stick his elbow right in Wades throat, thats the best way to break the fall.

KG 3 for 4, every other starter has missed all their shots. That ain't going to stay that way...
