Hey… remember the classic Celtics road jersey?
I miss those things.
The last time they wore it appears to be at Golden State… on February 20th (which is where that picture came from).
I’m not trying to say that I’m upset that the Celtics are showcasing some different road jerseys. They don’t look too bad. In fact, I kinda like them both… including last night’s retro “Boston” road jersey.
I’m just letting the Boston Celtics know that the fans notice these things. We know you’re trying to sell us stuff. And we know you’re taking advantage of the Celtics being awesome to do it… because who’s going to complain about the laundry being worn by a team that has won 50 games by early March?
And you’re right… for now.
But just know this. We here in Boston don’t like changes so much (Exhibit A: Fenway Park)… and we’re fond of complaining Not only that… it wasn’t too long ago that the Celtics sucked… so those scars are still pretty fresh. God help you if the Celtics blow it in the playoffs… on the road… in that alternate road jersey. You’ll never be able to sell those things around here again.
