Boston Celtics!!

So we watched the game tonight, and holy COW what a win!! At first I thought it was going to be a close game as they stayed within one point of each other for most of the first quarter, but then the Celtics ended up pulling ahead by so much that they won by 39 points. It was fun to watch! Anyway, during all the celebration afterwards, the team sat down for (what I assume was) a group picture. As they got comfortable, Ray Allen reached over to his toddler son behind him and tenderly cupped his chin in his huge hands, gently bringing his little face in for a quick kiss. Out of that entire game, I think that's what I will remember the longest! I have such high respect for great athletes in general, but when they display tenderness and unexpected softness, you can knock me over with a feather, I'm that impressed.

Love it.

I love catching things like that. They're so big and tough looking it just makes it that much sweeter. Like when a biker is holding a baby and cooing to it.
