This Actually Happened – March 10th, 2012

Lakers Fans Hate The Celtics

The other day, I drove to the gas station and pulled into one of the pumps. There was a problem with the machine so I had to walk to the window in order to pay the attendant. As soon as I approached the window the guy seemed repulsed. “You just ruined my day, bro. That shirt is my kryptonite.” He yelled in disgust. I looked down and saw that I had on a Boston Celtics t-shirt. I laughed at his antics and assumed the transaction would begin shortly thereafter. (I was wrong!) “Hey Jose, get me my Lakers sweatshirt!” The attendant yelled again. (Again, I thought it was a joke!) He continued to carry-on about how much he hates the Celtics. I apologized and said that I was from Boston; he didn’t care. (Honestly, I just wanted some gas!) After a few moments, he disappeared. About a minute later, he returned to the window with his Lakers’ sweatshirt. “Now that I have on the purple and gold I can help you.” (I was pretty sure I didn’t want to purchase gas form this guy, but I decided to get the incident over with!) He completed the transaction and handed me back my card. “Honestly, the Lakers and Celtics have the best rivalry.” He said in a calm voice. I agreed and quickly filled the tank before speeding off. (To any law enforcement officers who may happen to read this entry, I drove at the legal limit!) If that incident wasn’t weird enough, about a month ago, I was driving through South Central LA and the green Mustang in front of me shocked me. There was a huge Lakers sticker covering the back window and the Mustang logo on the bumper was concealed by large mustard yellow lettering which read, “The Celtics Suck.” (I kid you not!) Come to think of it, I got pulled over by the police on the same day of the gas station incident. I hope it wasn’t the Celtics T. These Lakers fans are out of control! BELIEVE IT OR NOT!

I honestly don’t know what the big deal is; the Lakers are great…to piss on!

Sunday will be the day I find out if the Seton Hall Pirates make the tourney. Go Pirates!

I hope everyone is ready to get those brackets filled out!

First and foremost, I enjoy writing stories. I recently completed my first novel, and I successfully co-wrote a short film script, which won the grand prize in the words made easy competition.
