It's Showtime with Magic!
Celtics vs. Lakers. Bird vs. Magic. These were big rivalries in the 80's. As a boy I knew nothing of the Cold War going on at the time, but I surely knew the date of the next showdown between these two teams.
Growing up I was a huge Larry Bird and Boston Celtics fan - some may even say an obsessive. My third grade teacher had to pull me aside to tell me that I could no longer incorporate the Celtics into my creative writing stories, I had to find another muse.
