Sky Of Blue, Sea of Green

Abdullah (on left, standing)- who, I should add, is a Catholic- never was without a cop less than 50 feet from him.


Chris, Marcus and Angela hamming it up at the Boston Massacre memorial.


The blonde is my nanny, Elle.


I love this shot.



Part of the duties of the NBA Finals MVP is to be the first crush for teenage girls in the team's hometown.


The kind of girl that you bring home to mother... if you, for whatever reason, need mother to have a heart attack.


Maybe the best picture that I took personally.


Most towns have a separate, distinct parade where a guy can celebrate being sodomized by another man, but this guy just couldn't wait.


No town has a parade for people painted pure Silver, however.


Enthusiasm was what we were looking for, although cuteness counted, too.


School, or unsupervised at the parade? These dudes made the right choice.


All the noise didn't bother James Otis at all.


The glasses were left over from First Night, but they fit the bill.

If he wasn't dating the girl above, he should be.


Double S tends to go for the Hannah Montana demographic a lot.

Like I said... pretty much everyone was happy.


Steady mobbin' on the Common.


Hat, banner, leprechaun shirt... ready to roll


Goddamn right, little man.


Look closely, and you'll see that each one of these guys has a 3.5 foot Beat Down Stick.


It's hard goddamned work being Abdullah.


It ain't easy being Rajon Rondo, either....

Boy, she has a lot of pictures, no?

Faces In The Crowd At The Celtics Rally...

Well-dressed gentlemen I encountered on Boston Common...

There probably was a cooler old person than this lady hanging around Boston Common during the parade, but I didn't see her.

I personally held off on giving Gabby and Melissa their first Mob Scene, but this baby seems pretty cool with the whole thing...


Hidden benefit of the steroid era... 230 pound leprechauns


These two were in a previous entry, but aren't they cute?


Consider it done, my man...


Green ruled the day, wardrobe-wise.


There were lots of genuinely happy people walking around. Most of the people pictured here were on the train into town with us, but I have no idea who this girl is. Seems friendly, though...

One if by land, two if by sea....


My main man Mad Marcus...


This was sort of a Saint Patrick's Day parade that Italians could go to, as well.


"... like a full-grown German Shepherd... you better keep steppin'"


Note to self... prepare to flee when Johnny Law starts un-muzzling ol' Rover there.


I was this cute once, but age is a cruel Mistress.


He's cute, in a police horse kind of way.

The cop got mad at me when I tried to give the horse one of my apples.


You'd think that most crime happens on the ground.... but remember, the Celtics are really tall.


I saw someone throw something at this guy, and the only reason that a 70+ Korean War vet didn't kick his ass is that a huge Mick flatfoot saw it happen. You never saw a kid go to the pavement so hard, and the crowd was 100% supportive.

quick everyone... stand in front of the giant BEAT LA shirt!


Just like in your hometown, families like to pose in front of the 18 foot "Beat LA" shirt.


That shirt took up 1/3 of Georgia's 2007 cotton crop.


This guy was gesturing towards....

... this kid, who was a cutie.


Speaking of which....

Nor'Easter blues contributor Double S, who was heavily into the rum with Abdullah..


May as well throw in Angela, too.


I almost hired these girls- sound unheard- as my backup singers, except that I don't actually sing.

Well... I do sing... but it isn't pretty. Hence, the pretty backup singers.

We were rolling in a large crowd, so we need to work in all our co-conspirators.




Below, a distance shot, for scale...

More to come....
