TD Garden- Boston Celtics

Last week, we went to our first Boston Celtics game of the season.

One of the greatest things about Boston is the professional sports scene. With basketball, baseball, football, and hockey- there’s almost always a game of some sort on. Some tickets are harder to get than others, and it depends on who the visitor is, but sometimes you get can tickets for around $30, plus all the fees.

Before going to the game, we stopped at Tavern in the Square in Cambridge (Central Square). For being a sports place and a small chain, the food is quite good.

We split a buffalo chicken chicken. I forgot the before picture, but here’s the “after”:

We took the T: Red Line in town to Park Street, then transferred to the Green Line for North Station. It’s just a 1 minute walk from the station to TD Garden. This is where the Celtics (NBA) and Bruins (NHL = National Hockey League= men on ice that fight a lot) both play, along with concerts too.

It used to be called the Garden, but now it’s TD Garden, sponsored by TD Bank.

Our tickets were in the top level, but the 2nd row- so not too bad.

Here’s a look at the banners:

You can see that from the late 50’s to the late 60’s, they were Champions A LOT!!!

One thing that we notice when we go to sporting events, is that the accents come out! Living in Cambridge, we don’t hear a lot of accents (Boston, New England, etc). But when we go to a big event, you just can’t ignore them. Sometimes on the train, you will hear them but people tend to not talk on the T or even loud enough to hear. But it’s just hilarious hearing the Boston accent- especially when they are yelling about something (like at the reps at game or their favorite player). Certain words just sound so funny!

Here’s the team coming out and a view of the arena:

The team’s Intro:

The Celtics won against the Washington Wizards. We picked that game because we wanted to see John Wall (an ex-UK player) play against Rondo (another ex-UK player). Go C’s!

    That place is huge – just getting to your seats must have burned calories. And that food had to have been pretty good or you were very hungry. Yum.
    Sounds like you are having a great time. hugs
