Ever since we relocated from the Boston area to San Francisco more than a dozen years ago, I have been dreaming of a Word Series showdown between my old and new hometown baseball teams, the Boston Red Sox and the San Francisco Giants. But that has not come to pass.
It almost happened last year, when both the Red Sox and the Giants made the playoffs. But neither team made it to the World Series.
I also wished that the AFC’s New England Patriots might face-off against the NFC’s San Francisco 49ers is the NFL Super Bowl. But that hasn’t happened either.
And then there is basketball. Wouldn’t it be great if the Boston Celtics could play the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals Championship Series?
Well guess what? For the first time since 2010, the Celtics are in the NBA Finals after winning their series against the Miami Heat. And the Warriors are returning to the Finals for the time since 2019 after beating the Dallas Mavericks. Yay!
So who am I going to be rooting for to win the 2022 NBA Championship? Well, if it were baseball, I’d be pulling for the Red Sox. If it were football, probably the Pats. Or maybe the 49ers. Kind of a toss-up. But between the Celtics and the Warriors, I’ve got to tip my hat to the Warriors.
