Dale Arnold on WEEI this afternoon briefly mentioned that some people he knows went and played golf with Larry Bird in Florida last week, and that Larry was most gracious and charming, he bought them rounds of beer on course, and commented that he was really happy to see the Celtics doing well, and had great things to say about the run the Celtics have been on. They speculated that Bird will likely show up at the Fleet should the Celtics make the finals. (A Celtics playoff ticket holder asks: “Will that qualify as Larry Bird walking through that door?”) Neumeier said his NBC sports contact said they would love to see a Lakers/Celtics NBA Final.
