Turkey in the Straw & Celtics Victories

Sophie sings "Turkey in the Straw"...a few parts, at least.

Also, the Boston Celtics, in the midst of an impressive Boston Blizzard, tonight won their 17th consecutive NBA basketball game! It's quite possible that they would enter the anticipated Christmas matchup against the Lakers gunning for their 20th straight victory. This is a fun team to watch, in part because each of the five starters brings a lot to the table: Kevin Garnett has always been one of my all-time faves as the Minnesota Timberwolves best player of all-time, Paul Pierce won me over during last year's NBA Finals, Ray Allen's got serious game, I can't say enough about young, energetic point guard Rajon Rondo, and even their big man in the center, Kendrick Perkins, has shown a steady improvement.

How does this compare to my favorite team of youth, the '86 Celtics? This was a Hall-of-Fame team: Dennis Johnson & Danny Ainge as the back court (neither of whom are in the HOF, but DJ should be), the incomparable Larry Bird at forward, Kevin McHale (the best native Minnesotan NBA player of all time) at the power forward spot, and an impressive Robert Parish anchoring the center spot.

I'd have to give a slight edge to the '86 team, though if this present team keeps up their current pace and wins another title, I might have to re-evaluate...
