It’s game seven time in Boston and I can’t imagine the atmosphere. I personally stopped watching the Celtics when legends retired (Bird, Parish, McHale, etc.) and the new stars literally died (Reggie Lewis, Len Bias). The team philosophy for a number of years seemed to be to try to stay .500. This year, I’ve started watching a little more basketball – about 10 games compared to the 72 I used to watch. Yes, I’m a fair-weather fan, but I think it’s reasonable considering the circumstances. So let’s dedicate this set of links to the Boston Celtics.
I was included in a couple of carnivals as well. Check them out. I also want to thank MSN for highlighting my article on snowforting – even if everyone missed the satire behind the post.
Ha, personal finance blogging doesn’t seem to do satire/sarcasm tremendously well (unfortunately, in this reader’s opinion), beyond a couple of other snarky east coasters and canucks. Saccharine family anecdotes and earnestness is definitely the lingua franca. But congrats on making MSN :)

Thanks for the link back to the frugal festival.
I hope Guinness416 wasn’t referring to my fine festival with her snide sarcasm comment as it was written with the most noblest of intentions!
Seriously, I have to admit that I wasn’t sure about the whole snowfortin’ issue you brought up. Ok – I missed the sarcasm…
