Title: Where are you from?
Post by: ACF on September 05, 2007, 11:38:34 AM
I thought it would be funny to find out how many countries are represented here at CelticsBlog? As you may (or may not) have noticed, I'm from Denmark myself...  :)

Just two days ago I found a "Boston Celtics Opening Night Celebration 2000" T-shirt in a vintage store here in Ilsan, South Korea.  Since then, I've noticed A LOT of Celtics gear.  I hope I'm doing my part in spreading the fan-base to the Far East.

Okay, so that's USA (duh), the UK (I've noticed a few Britons around here), Denmark and South Korea... I really don't want to browse through the 3300+ members section  ;D

I'm also from Brookline.

I moved back to Boston a year ago after living in Rome for two years.  It's difficult being a devoted fan from really far away.  I remember how starved I was for Celtics news while I was over there.  I would search the internet for anything related to the Celtics.  Celticsblog was a savior for me during that time.

While I was in Italy I also signed on for NBA.com streaming audio broadcasts of the Celtics and would stay up until 4 am listening to games, jumping around my home office in my underwear angrily or celebrating, depending on how the Celts were playing.  Good times, good times.  Everyone thought I was crazy...but they all loved soccer in the same way.

Anyway, its awesome that you guys are fans despite your distance.  Respect.

Yo, Allaboutthegreen - are you Brookline born and raised?  Did you go to BHS?

I do a double take every time someone writes that their from Plymouth or Cambridge, until I see the state initials.

The original Boston, in a county called Lincolnshire, is not too far from where I live.  It couldn't be more diffrent from the US Boston, it's a small rural town with a population of about 35,000.  It's known as the 'fattest town' in England.

if my hometown history is correct, I believe the original Plymouth was simply located at the "mouth" of the river Ply - is that right?

Its at the 'mouth' of the rivers Ply and Tamar (I looked it up).

Apparently, its twinned with your Plymouth, which makes sense.

I've never been there myself but I know some people who went to University there and liked it enough to stay after they had graduated.

I used to live in a tiny little town named Edwards, New York (so tiny that K-12 for it and another town all go to the same school, Edwards-Knox).  It was maybe 20 minutes from Govenor (sp?), and a half hour from Canton.  We went to Potsdam and Odgensburg fairly often (and Massena and Watertown, too.)

Roy, I am from the country, but Edwards is so country I feel like they've outlawed cars and made it so only 4-wheelers and snowmobiles are allowed to travel towns.

I cannot talk about Edwards but I've been to Canton as some of my work mates live there.  I mentioned to IP that I am in Carthage now in another thread.  I personally like this area but it is coming to end sooner or later.  Love the summers just cannot get used to winters.

Yeah, Edwards was a pretty dead place when I was there (many, many years ago).  At the time, our school colors were gray (or silver, maybe) and black, and we were the Cougars.  These things could have changed, however.

And yes, we did own a couple of four-wheelers. ;)

I'd love to visit Tokyo some time in the future, seems like an incredible city and an amazing country.  I've heard that Westerners are in a stunned daze for the first few days they are there.

Melbourne is another cool place I'd like to go.  Apparently, it has the highest quality of life of any city in the world.

This is a wonderful thread. As Jeff indicated, we regularly receive visitors from over 100 countries around this old world. I would expand a bit on that. The numbers Jeff provided reflect a very short range sample. I would add that internet visitation numbers are notoriously skewed also and the issue becomes greater the further away from the U.S. the statistics are gathered.

For an example, we know we have some "unique visits" and "unique visitors" that may in fact represent dozens if not hundreds of individuals connecting to CB on multiple occasions. So for instance, when we see visitors from Yemen, we don't know if we are seeing one American abroad just checking in, or a large number of local persons as well who love basketball and are hooking up with us on a regular basis.

Here's another interesting tidbit. Any sampling of CelticsBlog visitation will produce a list of at least fifty language variations. Yep, that's not a typo folks. The top ten include two forms of English, two forms of Spanish, French, Italian, German, Chinese, Portuguese and a large number of computers that are configured to handle many languages. After those ten, the list becomes truly fascinating.

There's an interesting offshoot from this as well. You wouldn't believe how much our auto-translation service is used. Thanks to Google providing developers like myself with access to their technology, we currently offer automatic translation of around 99% of everything in this website into nine different languages.

It is not a perfect system. The translations are not always the best and are for the most part "read only". Still, they have expanded the usability of CelticsBlog in a major way and many people put them to good use. When Google finishes the testing of their new Arabic translation system, I look forward to adding it to our website.

In my years, I've done some touring of the Earth. I won't recount those excursions here other than to say they occupy nearly all of the top rankings of profound experiences I've been granted in this life. Thus when I come to CelticsBlog, there is nothing more special to me than seeing the constituency of this assemblage. Yo Denmark, Yo Yemen, Yo Puerto Rico. Thank you all for the blessing of your presence in this place.

BTW, I'm originally from Kentucky, USA. Naturally, that explains my obsession with basketball.

Thanks Bob.

I actually wondered if some poor guy was translating everything written on CelticsBlog into Chinese, Japanese etc. I feel a bit stupid now.

Thanks for the info.

I noticed that there's a Union Jack in the upper left corner. I'd like to think that my fellow Brits would realise that 'flavor' still means 'flavour' etc and that Americans call trousers 'pants' but I wouldn't be surprised if some didn't.

I still remember hearing an American tourist loudly talking about their 'fanny' in a public place.  It took me a while to realise that they were talking about their backside.  In England a 'fanny' refers to a very diffrent part of the anatomy.

Remember this if you ever visit Britain and decide to bring a 'fannypack' with you. :D

I live in Bermuda now,

I have one question after having been there twice.  How, pride, do you Bermudans not kill 3/4s of us Americans who rent mopeds there and make left and right turns directly into traffic because we can't get used to driving in the left lane?   ::)

Actually, Moped accidents are far too high on the fatality list on the island. It's not just the Americans going the wrong way, it's natives swerving in and out of traffic.

I've lived here just over a year now. One thing that helps is the 35 mph speed limit. The other is that a lot of the roads are so narrow, there's really only one side of the street :)

I recall a time in London when I was with some of my American friends.  We were coming out of the Tube when an older gentleman overheard their accents.  He come over with a big smile and asked them if they had seen the "werewolf".  My friends, being young (High School), were completely clueless as to what he was asking.  He took one look at their faces and burst out laughing.  I had to explain to them that he was referencing the movie An American Werewolf In London.

Upon typing this, the memory is a lot funnier than what I can express in words.  Thought I would   share never the less....

I live in Hamilton Township Roy, were practically neighbors.

Nice.  You're basically right up the street.  Let me know if you want to get tickets when the Celts are in Philly.

http://www.stubhub.com/philadelphia-76ers-tickets/?event_id=441423

Lower Center 101 row 14 sounds good to me. The Celtics bench is in 124. I sat in 124 row 01 before. Too close to the court. You can only see from the players knees and up when they go down the other end. 101 row 01 is right behind Mike and Tommy. That would be fun. Let me know what you think.

My sister lives off of Neck Rd by the CVS. I am down there most weekends watching football this time of the year.

this happened to me in antigua, but i was in a rental car! lol not only do u drive on the opposite side of the road, u sit on the opposite side of the car while doing it! almost hit cars, people, goats, dogs, etc! the force wasnt strong with me that week, lol.

The hardest thing about driving on the other street is actually (at least for me) is not being in the other lane, but the blinkers and windshield wipers are on the opposite side of the steering wheel.  Every time I want to make a turn, my wipers come on.  That's frustrating.  Driving a stick with your left hand was actually not as hard as I thought, and I've only turned into the wrong late twice.  But the [dang] wipers......

Also, I heard when I was in Greece that the number 1 cause of death for American tourists in Greece is moped accidents.

Going 35MPH on a moped felt like going 90 on my motorcycle.  I've never driven a car where the lanes are backward, but the scariest thing is riding in the back of a cab for the first few times when you're not used to the direction of the traffic.   
Title: Re: Where are you from?
Post by: Bob Day on September 09, 2007, 03:46:55 PM
This topic is turning into a public service thread. Allow your crazy Uncle Bob to make a few contributions...

When you are in London, trust your driver. He is an expert in how to scotch up and throw the vehicle you are riding in, into something like either a 480 or 960 degree spin (left or right--sometimes both) in order not to slam into the double-decker tourist bus that has either gotten caught in high power and telephone lines and/or has tipped over and spilled Americans all over the place.

If you are in downtown Paris and need to cross the street, move with the herd. That is the only way to cross a downtown street in Paris and live to see the other side. Try to stay in the middle of the pack. It is the safest place for you. French drivers will never attack the herd as a whole. Even though they have superior advantage, they realize that direct, forceful attack against such a large group might inadvertently result in some personal injury to themselves. So when the herd moves, they stop, lay back, churn out hydrocarbons and wait for the central portion to pass so they can then pick off all the young, old, sick and weak stragglers.

If you are in Athens and decide you would like to take an excursion though the local country side, forget about driving altogether. The Greek people are universally humane and will restrain you with force if necessary rather than see you snuff your own life out prematurely behind the wheel of an automobile in Greece. What they will allow you to do is take a "crash course" in Greek highway navigation. It is a complex thing that involves knowing way more than just how to operate a motor vehicle. They will usually start you out in a position I can only describe to other Americans as "riding shotgun".

Gaining mastery of that position is essential if you wish to become the friends of Greeks in any significant ways. Never fear, they will provide you with an assortment of tools to designed to accelerate your learning experience. That usually involves at least a hair-raising car ride that would make "Mad Max" soil his trousers and a sack full of empty wine bottles, empty food cans, cat litter, cats, rancid meat, rotten tomatoes and eggplant, perhaps a busted mandolin or two and other things that cannot be mentioned here that you, as "shotgun" are expected to hurl at other motorists when needed. Notice I said, "when", not "if".

Trust me, they'll provide you with cues and teach you all you need to know about it. Once you get it under your belt, it's great fun. I realize this may sound a bit far out there, but in my opinion, you really haven't lived until you've seen what a fifteen pound leg of stinking mutton can do to the top of a car or one of its windows at highway speed.

The old saying is true, "Travel broadens one."

What a terrible place!  Hopefully, one day Pawtuxet Village will be demolished and a memorial to the great HMS Gaspee will be erected in it's place.

The first trip I made to Europe was also the first I ever made to New York City. I had one hour to make a plane transfer from JFK airport to La Guardia. In spite of the language barrier (him from New York, me from Kentucky) I managed to convey my need to this man with whom I was placing my destiny (I didn't realize that at the time).

What ensued was a taxi cab ride across New York composed of such nightmarish fabric, it could result in years of waking up in cold sweats from the sounds of one's own screams. The irony of this was that when I came back from Paris, I almost managed to leap out of my jet in order to kiss and caress the runway blacktop of New York in such a way that I imagine most people would consider vulgar.

Beautiful! It is just terrific to hear where all of you are from. It is my hope to work something out with Google whereby I can implement a component here that will all everyone to geo-map themselves. It wouldn't have to be mapping to specific address, but it would allow to create a page on the site where we could see a global representation of where CB members are located.

It will be a nice feature here...if they'll let me do it with a membership as large as ours. The last time I talked to them about it, they wanted to talk money. The membership size was the sticking point because of the drain that mapping thousands of members with who knows how many hits a day would cause. We'll see how it goes. They are rich, we are not. I shall remain hopeful.

Meanwhile I thought of one more driving rule. If you are in the Middle East, and your vehicle is a camel, and you are dismounted from it...never stand directly in front of it with your back turned toward it unless you wish to be bitten on some part of your backside by some of the biggest and strongest teeth you've ever seen. There are a multitude of daring things people in this world like to do over and over. Getting bit just one time by a camel though will be enough of that adventure to last you a lifetime. :)

Yes, there is a way we can depict where everyone is from...even graphically. I'm waiting on some next phase things for CB though before we do that. Part of that will require more money and part of it will require me talking Google into letting me run tens of thousands of SQL queries on their GeoMap servers each day without CB having to pay exorbitant licensing fees. So no sweat. This too will come in time.

Well, sorry about that. Something screwy is going on with that modification. The field in profiles just disappeared. I uninstalled the mod. I think I may shut the site down late tonight and do a bit of maintenance work on the forums. I have a couple of things I want to clean out of it anyway. I may have the flags back by tomorrow morn.

I've got an idea, though:
How about making state flags a possibility for all you Americans? We all know Stars & Stripes but it would be fun to see all those state flags, too. If American CB posters still want their national flag then that's cool. I just think it would be fun seeing all you guys reppin' your state flags  :)

I would like to address both Amager and Stojko here. Amager, I can't do the states flag thing yet, but I will look into getting the forums to display location (city, state) info in topic posts.

Stojko, it is fine that you wish to relate with Armenia. As we are seeing in this thread, we come from many different places. Many of us have lived in or been strongly influenced/molded by a number of different places or people from them. There may be many reasons we associate more with one source of our roots than another. Doing so seems a very natural thing.

The following membership numbers listed to the right of the months listed below date back to when I first started developing CB v.3.0 last October. The numbers are current up to 10:16 AM EST, December 6, 2007. Note that we actually launched CB3 on December 30, 2006. CB3 was a complete re-engineering of CelticsBlog based on entirely new technologies. Those still serve us in CB v.4.0 and should continue to do so for a long time. The new CelticsBlog will celebrate the first anniversary of its public launch on the 30th of this month. We've averaged around ten or eleven new members per day over the 14+ months since the site's development began. Averages since launch date would be a bit higher of course.

Membership total: 3973

Sorry, but we don't have a Mother flag. However, she probably had you somewhere so you can still choose a national flag. I encourage every CB member to add your nation's flag to your member profile. You can do so in the "Forum Profile Information" area of your profile. Dig around, you'll find it. ;) The international diversity here is a beautiful thing.

I just found out the other day that there's
a small Danish tv channel (DK4) that actually
SHOWS NBA BASKETBALL!!!!!!!!!!  :P I was just
laying in my bed, flickin' through the channels
-all 38 of them, which is what you get with cable
here in Copenhagen- and suddenly I see Chris Paul
driving to the hoop against Houston. Needless to say
I was psyched, since the last time I watched a live
game was when Philly played the Lakers in the Finals
waaaaaay back...
Anyway: DK4 will show a game each Sunday and sometimes
also on Fridays and/or Saturdays. Up until now I've had
to settle for highlights, game threads and then of course
YouTube clips. I thought about doing a thread for this but
figured I might as well keep this thread (my baby)
going by sharing this with all of you.
I don't know when they'll broadcast the C's but I'm pretty
sure I'll be watching, even if I have to get up at 3 am  ;D

I recall a time in London when I was with some of my American friends.  We were coming out of the Tube when an older gentleman overheard their accents.  He come over with a big smile and asked them if they had seen the "werewolf".  My friends, being young (High School), were completely clueless as to what he was asking.  He took one look at their faces and burst out laughing.  I had to explain to them that he was referencing the movie An American Werewolf In London.

Upon typing this, the memory is a lot funnier than what I can express in words.  Thought I would   share never the less....             

I loved that movie.  Best wolf's howl ever heard in cinema.....

They aren't that much different (about an hour apart I think).  Basically the difference between Santa Barbara and the other oceanside paradises on the California coast (Santa Monica, Malibu, San Diego, etc...) is that the highs in a Santa Barbara stay around 85-90, as opposed to the 90-95+ in the LA/San Diego areas. 



edit - just looked, the highest normal high in Santa Barbara 78 in August, and the lowest norm low is 40 (meaning no overnight freezes) in January.  Santa Monica gets mid-80s on the beach, but mid to high 90s inland.

I am from Mos Eisley, Tatooine, which is known to many as a pirate city. Overrun by criminal transients on the lam, Mos Eisley has been described as a wretched hive of scum and villainy. Mos Eisley is one of the largest spaceports on Tatooine. Its architecture is typical of the Tatooine style -- blockhouses largely sunken into the sand, providing some respite from the relentless desert suns. The city is arranged in a wheel formation, with the central power and water distribution plants at its hub. Circular docking bays and landing pads dot the city, and the sky is busy with interstellar traffic.

Luckily for him, they have made alot of progress with the biomechanical technology to create a life-like appendage that works just as well as the original.

This is too weird, man! I knew this guy - a transporter, mainly, (yeah, right ... really a pirate, if you ask me)  - who had this bucket-of-bolts ship he called the Phoenix ... no, the Falcon - yeah, that was it - the Millenium Falcon, (where do these guys get these names?!?!)

Anyway, this hunk-of-junk freighter was held together with bantha-glue and minoch saliva, but it was still dressed out with hyper-drive, and as fast as any in the quadrant ... maybe the galaxy.

Well, this old barge had supposedly made the Kessel Run in some un-godly time, so this guy, (the captain/owner), Han I think his name was, (no "s" ... he always made a point of saying that, don't ask me why), would hang around in these back-alley cantinas on Mos Eisley, waiting for some desperate spacer to show up with a sob-story and a pocket-full of Imperial credits, (then do his best to drain 'em of every one, so he could turn around and blow 'em all on the pod races).

So the last time I was in Mos Eisley, (looking for a bio-splice for my lady's jack-unit), I run into ol' Han, and he tells me he's got this "sure thing", and that he just needs a "small bump" of credits to get this giant slug Jabba off his back long enough to get the Falcon to Alderan and back. Well, I dunno where the heck this rancor-bait has been for the last hundred revs, but wherever it is, they obviously don't have enough e-links to know the real deal, or else he's been spiked on jawa juice long enough to melt Hoth!

Anyway, I proceed to inform him that he might as well forget his little romp to Alderan, 'cuz whatever he was after there is now space-dust, (along with Alderan itself). Well, he starts laughing his you-know-what off, saying that's the best one he's heard all week, and that he's got some big hairy friend who'd love to hear it, too.

Only problem is I'm not laughing with him ... in fact I'm not even grinning, and when he starts to realize this, the laughter fades, and his face turns as cold as nitrogen. Next thing I know, he's shaking a blaster in my face, saying how's I'd better not waste any more of his "precious" time, (yeah ... he used air-quotes, but only one hand, 'cuz the other was on the blaster, can you believe that?!?), or else I'll get to know what a particle beam tastes like ... for the first and last time.

Well, as depressed as I am from just being in this hind-end of space, that bit of info doesn't cheer me up too much. And even though I can see the warm glow of neutrons jumping the gap of his trigger mechanism, I've still gotta fill this pirate in, whether my medulla oblongata survives or not.

So, I start tellin this asteroid how the Empire's got this new toy, and that one of the mucky-mucks was tryin' to make a big wave with this Princess What's-her-name, and Alderan was the casualty. Well ... he's still standin' there, with this Tusken Raider look on his face, and the blaster switch is starting to glow red, (and is now close enough to smell - and neutrons ain't roses, baby!), so I figure I've still got AU's to cover and press on.

So then I say I'm not messin' with him, and that the mucky-muck general has got a "size problem", if he knows what I mean, (and I wink here), and that he was trying to make a point and impress this Princess, by blowing Alderan into oblivion with this new toy the Empire gave him to play with.

Well, the Tusken Raider look is still plastered to his cratered mug, and the blaster's now beginning to make that little rumbling sound, (you know, the one it makes right before it "pops"), and I figure I've got nothing to lose at this point, so what the heck. So then I take my thumb, ('cuz the apertures on these new PB's is BIG, man!), and I lick it real casual-like, and just stick it in the end of the blaster ... like so.

Well ... I dunno what reaction I was looking for, but it certainly wasn't the one I got. Slowly the Sand-people vacancy leaves his face, and one corner of his mouth curls, (just the tiniest bit), and he just lets go of the blaster, so I'm left standing there with the glowing, rumbling particle-beam weapon stuck to my thumb. Well, by now the gap on the switch is a steady stream, and my thumb is getting all warm and tingly, and it's spreading to the rest of my hand, and up my arm.

I know what you're thinking, 'cuz I was thinking it, too: Why the heck in all of space is the crazy thing still engaged, if he's not holding the trigger mechanism? So now I'm the one with the Sand-Raider look on my face, and he's standing there with that curled lip, kind of glancing from side-to-side, and muttering the name "Guido" under his breath ... over-and-over, real slow, like. My hand is completely numb now, up to my elbow, and it's right then, when I'm about to reach up with my other hand and pull the thing off, that I see it: The lousy space-pirate's got a beam key, and it's synced with the PB stuck to my thumb.

Well, I figure at this point that I'm pretty much Ton-ton poo-doo, and that for some reason beyond my lacking, this guy has set me up! All manner of bizarre musings are swirling in my skull, like this guy's on dark-matter capsules, or he mistakes me for some henchman that the Hutt slug has after him, or that he plans on stealing my Nubian cruiser, or that maybe ... just maybe, he's a left-over from the Clone Wars who's dealing with some major PTSD.

Anyway, just when the numbness begins to reach my shoulder, and I think he's ready to bolt and detonate the beam-key from a safe distance, in walks this cloaked old guy with a beard as white as Imperial armor, and a light-saber hanging from his belt. That's right, a light-saber! Here, standing in this dump of a dive in the rear-end of space-ports, is a freaking Jedi! Well [dang]ed if I know what he was doing there, but after the last twnety minutes of dealing with Captain Crater-brain, I was just happy for a break in the monotany!

So over saunters this old Jedi, like he owns the place, (you know that swagger they have), and stops about six feet from the two of us, and looks us each up and down, his eyes coming to rest on the glowing blaster, which is now rumbling louder than ever. Well ... I don't know what these two jumpers were up to, but it was clear they knew each other, and it was clear this meeting was not a total surprize. Without saying a word, the Jedi, with his left hand resting on the hilt of the light-saber, just raises his right hand ever so slightly, wiggles the very tip of his index finger, and the blaster just pops from my thumb, (with a sound like popping your cheek), and drops to the floor ... cold as ice!

Now, don't get me wrong, I was extremely pleased to have that stupid thing off my thumb, and have the life slowly returning to my hand and arm. But the attitude of these Jedi ... well, it just gets to me somehow. I mean, here we were, having a perfectly confusing, life-threatening encounter, and in walks this "robed royalty" of the Force, who just wags his little pointer and ruins the whole thing! Who do they think they are? Guardians of the Galaxy or something? (Oh, yeah ... I guess they are). Well, despite that, I didn't like the interference, and by a glance at Han, I knew he wasn't real pleased with how things were turning out, either.

He was now looking like he had just given birth to an Ewok, and though his lip was still curled, a small bit of clear liquid was escaping from the corner, and it wasn't enhancing his appearance, if you know what I mean. Whatever the "robed one" had on him, it was obviously time to pay up, and the coffers were empty. Well, whatever the reason, and whatever the intent, it was very clear that I was now just an observer ... and I didn't like it ... not one bit.

But, even though my mind raced with thoughts of derring-do, (like rolling on the floor, grabbing the PB, jumping up, and wasting the lot ... or doing a flip in mid-air, disarming the Jedi, and landing with a defensive stance), I was forced to resort to collecting my pride and leaving. Now, some say I actually ran from the place, but I don't see how they can know, with it being so dark and everything. And I've heard stories over the years of what took place there after I left - harrowing tales of intense light-saber battles, of limbs being removed, of giant slugs and rancors, of the Almighty Carnac and indigestion ... but I don't take them seriously.

Whatever it was that Han wanted from me, I'll never know, and whatever it was that was going on between the two of them, will remain a mystery. But the thing that really gets to me ... late at night when my mind is restless and I can't sleep, is what it was that was so important to Han on Alderan ... what it was he lost, that made him feel so compelled to risk both our lives to resolve it.

I am from Mos Eisley, Tatooine, which is known to many as a pirate city. Overrun by criminal transients on the lam, Mos Eisley has been described as a wretched hive of scum and villainy. Mos Eisley is one of the largest spaceports on Tatooine. Its architecture is typical of the Tatooine style -- blockhouses largely sunken into the sand, providing some respite from the relentless desert suns. The city is arranged in a wheel formation, with the central power and water distribution plants at its hub. Circular docking bays and landing pads dot the city, and the sky is busy with interstellar traffic.

 ;)
 


I have a buddy that use to hang out at a cantina there. But one night he got a little wasted, bumped into a young farm boy, and then suddenly got his arm cut off by this old wizard. Luckily for him, they have made alot of progress with the biomechanical technology to create a life-like appendage that works just as well as the original.

This is too weird, man! I knew this guy - a transporter, mainly, (yeah, right ... really a pirate, if you ask me)  - who had this bucket-of-bolts ship he called the Phoenix ... no, the Falcon - yeah, that was it - the Millenium Falcon, (where do these guys get these names?!?!)

Anyway, this hunk-of-junk freighter was held together with bantha-glue and minoch saliva, but it was still dressed out with hyper-drive, and as fast as any in the quadrant ... maybe the galaxy.

Well, this old barge had supposedly made the Kessel Run in some un-godly time, so this guy, (the captain/owner), Han I think his name was, (no "s" ... he always made a point of saying that, don't ask me why), would hang around in these back-alley cantinas on Mos Eisley, waiting for some desperate spacer to show up with a sob-story and a pocket-full of Imperial credits, (then do his best to drain 'em of every one, so he could turn around and blow 'em all on the pod races).

So the last time I was in Mos Eisley, (looking for a bio-splice for my lady's jack-unit), I run into ol' Han, and he tells me he's got this "sure thing", and that he just needs a "small bump" of credits to get this giant slug Jabba off his back long enough to get the Falcon to Alderan and back. Well, I dunno where the heck this rancor-bait has been for the last hundred revs, but wherever it is, they obviously don't have enough e-links to know the real deal, or else he's been spiked on jawa juice long enough to melt Hoth!

Anyway, I proceed to inform him that he might as well forget his little romp to Alderan, 'cuz whatever he was after there is now space-dust, (along with Alderan itself). Well, he starts laughing his you-know-what off, saying that's the best one he's heard all week, and that he's got some big hairy friend who'd love to hear it, too.

Only problem is I'm not laughing with him ... in fact I'm not even grinning, and when he starts to realize this, the laughter fades, and his face turns as cold as nitrogen. Next thing I know, he's shaking a blaster in my face, saying how's I'd better not waste any more of his "precious" time, (yeah ... he used air-quotes, but only one hand, 'cuz the other was on the blaster, can you believe that?!?), or else I'll get to know what a particle beam tastes like ... for the first and last time.

Well, as depressed as I am from just being in this hind-end of space, that bit of info doesn't cheer me up too much. And even though I can see the warm glow of neutrons jumping the gap of his trigger mechanism, I've still gotta fill this pirate in, whether my medulla oblongata survives or not.

So, I start tellin this asteroid how the Empire's got this new toy, and that one of the mucky-mucks was tryin' to make a big wave with this Princess What's-her-name, and Alderan was the casualty. Well ... he's still standin' there, with this Tusken Raider look on his face, and the blaster switch is starting to glow red, (and is now close enough to smell - and neutrons ain't roses, baby!), so I figure I've still got AU's to cover and press on.

So then I say I'm not messin' with him, and that the mucky-muck general has got a "size problem", if he knows what I mean, (and I wink here), and that he was trying to make a point and impress this Princess, by blowing Alderan into oblivion with this new toy the Empire gave him to play with.

Well, the Tusken Raider look is still plastered to his cratered mug, and the blaster's now beginning to make that little rumbling sound, (you know, the one it makes right before it "pops"), and I figure I've got nothing to lose at this point, so what the heck. So then I take my thumb, ('cuz the apertures on these new PB's is BIG, man!), and I lick it real casual-like, and just stick it in the end of the blaster ... like so.

Well ... I dunno what reaction I was looking for, but it certainly wasn't the one I got. Slowly the Sand-people vacancy leaves his face, and one corner of his mouth curls, (just the tiniest bit), and he just lets go of the blaster, so I'm left standing there with the glowing, rumbling particle-beam weapon stuck to my thumb. Well, by now the gap on the switch is a steady stream, and my thumb is getting all warm and tingly, and it's spreading to the rest of my hand, and up my arm.

I know what you're thinking, 'cuz I was thinking it, too: Why the heck in all of space is the crazy thing still engaged, if he's not holding the trigger mechanism? So now I'm the one with the Sand-Raider look on my face, and he's standing there with that curled lip, kind of glancing from side-to-side, and muttering the name "Guido" under his breath ... over-and-over, real slow, like. My hand is completely numb now, up to my elbow, and it's right then, when I'm about to reach up with my other hand and pull the thing off, that I see it: The lousy space-pirate's got a beam key, and it's synced with the PB stuck to my thumb.

Well, I figure at this point that I'm pretty much Ton-ton poo-doo, and that for some reason beyond my lacking, this guy has set me up! All manner of bizarre musings are swirling in my skull, like this guy's on dark-matter capsules, or he mistakes me for some henchman that the Hutt slug has after him, or that he plans on stealing my Nubian cruiser, or that maybe ... just maybe, he's a left-over from the Clone Wars who's dealing with some major PTSD.

Anyway, just when the numbness begins to reach my shoulder, and I think he's ready to bolt and detonate the beam-key from a safe distance, in walks this cloaked old guy with a beard as white as Imperial armor, and a light-saber hanging from his belt. That's right, a light-saber! Here, standing in this dump of a dive in the rear-end of space-ports, is a freaking Jedi! Well [dang]ed if I know what he was doing there, but after the last twnety minutes of dealing with Captain Crater-brain, I was just happy for a break in the monotany!

So over saunters this old Jedi, like he owns the place, (you know that swagger they have), and stops about six feet from the two of us, and looks us each up and down, his eyes coming to rest on the glowing blaster, which is now rumbling louder than ever. Well ... I don't know what these two jumpers were up to, but it was clear they knew each other, and it was clear this meeting was not a total surprize. Without saying a word, the Jedi, with his left hand resting on the hilt of the light-saber, just raises his right hand ever so slightly, wiggles the very tip of his index finger, and the blaster just pops from my thumb, (with a sound like popping your cheek), and drops to the floor ... cold as ice!

Now, don't get me wrong, I was extremely pleased to have that stupid thing off my thumb, and have the life slowly returning to my hand and arm. But the attitude of these Jedi ... well, it just gets to me somehow. I mean, here we were, having a perfectly confusing, life-threatening encounter, and in walks this "robed royalty" of the Force, who just wags his little pointer and ruins the whole thing! Who do they think they are? Guardians of the Galaxy or something? (Oh, yeah ... I guess they are). Well, despite that, I didn't like the interference, and by a glance at Han, I knew he wasn't real pleased with how things were turning out, either.

He was now looking like he had just given birth to an Ewok, and though his lip was still curled, a small bit of clear liquid was escaping from the corner, and it wasn't enhancing his appearance, if you know what I mean. Whatever the "robed one" had on him, it was obviously time to pay up, and the coffers were empty. Well, whatever the reason, and whatever the intent, it was very clear that I was now just an observer ... and I didn't like it ... not one bit.

But, even though my mind raced with thoughts of derring-do, (like rolling on the floor, grabbing the PB, jumping up, and wasting the lot ... or doing a flip in mid-air, disarming the Jedi, and landing with a defensive stance), I was forced to resort to collecting my pride and leaving. Now, some say I actually ran from the place, but I don't see how they can know, with it being so dark and everything. And I've heard stories over the years of what took place there after I left - harrowing tales of intense light-saber battles, of limbs being removed, of giant slugs and rancors, of the Almighty Carnac and indigestion ... but I don't take them seriously.

Whatever it was that Han wanted from me, I'll never know, and whatever it was that was going on between the two of them, will remain a mystery. But the thing that really gets to me ... late at night when my mind is restless and I can't sleep, is what it was that was so important to Han on Alderan ... what it was he lost, that made him feel so compelled to risk both our lives to resolve it. I'll never know, I guess, because they say he's still on Tatooine, in Mos Eisley, and that's one place I'm not visiting again ... ever! Hey ... know anyone who'd like a Nubian Cuiser ... real cheap?

(Thanks for indulging my sci-fi musings ... I couldn't help myself!)

Bakhu, I just want you to know, you've easily put away the race for the inaugural award for "Dude Who Routinely Causes Me Greatest Amusement At Ungodliest of Hours."  Well done, sir.  Always a pleasure to read your musings...which always seem to span the widest scope imaginable.

I'm orginally from Austin Texas, then I moved to Dallas Texas. I moved to Vegas when I was seveteen. Then moved to Lincoln Nebraska to go to college. I became a Celtics fan because I loved big twelve basketball and Kansas was so good. I became a Paul Pierce fan watching him against Texas. Ever since the C's drafted him, I have been a fan.

Unfortunately for you, in TPD's mind, this means you are not a real Celtics fan.

Wow, apparently I never posted my whereabouts in this thread.  I just spent 10 minutes looking back and all I found that I'd added was the Massachusetts State flag image back in November ::)

Anyhow, didn't want to be redundant. Since I'm not, I'll report that I grew up in Hingham, MA and have lived on Cape Cod for the last 15 years or so.

The "elbow" marks the spot.

I think there is an ordinance that every Cape Cod town has to have at least 4 sub-towns with in it ;).  Chatham has 4 different zip codes within about an 8 square mile area (maybe less)

Grew up in Acton, Mass.

Took the train from South Acton into North Station and saw a lot of games back in The GAHDEN.

(Never been to the new place located to the North toward the Charles Rivuh).

Lived in Seattle from 1984 to 1995.

Lived in Wichita ever since.

3922 members -700+ since I joined in August.
I don't know the average number of people joining each month.
It would be fun to see, though.

And remember to keep tellin' me where you're from  ;)

PS: Did anyone see those vintage BOSTON jerseys?! S-W-E-E-T!
The following membership numbers listed to the right of the months listed below date back to when I first started developing CB v.3.0 last October. The numbers are current up to 10:16 AM EST, December 6, 2007. Note that we actually launched CB3 on December 30, 2006. CB3 was a complete re-engineering of CelticsBlog based on entirely new technologies. Those still serve us in CB v.4.0 and should continue to do so for a long time. The new CelticsBlog will celebrate the first anniversary of its public launch on the 30th of this month. We've averaged around ten or eleven new members per day over the 14+ months since the site's development began. Averages since launch date would be a bit higher of course.

Membership total: 3973

December 2007 (first six days) - 17
November 2007 - 296
October 2007 - 236
September 2007 - 198
August 2007 - 357
July 2007 - 483
June 2007 - 360
May 2007 - 395
April 2007 - 209
March 2007 - 194
February 2007 - 211
January 2007 - 202
December 2006 - 87
November 2006 - 4
October 2006 - 3
Hey Bob, is there any way you can get another breakdown like this but up through June?  I'd love to see the June numbers.  Even a daily breakdown would be cool.  I'm guessing June 17/18 would break records for new members.  Thanks if you can!

There are an equal mix in St. George of Jazz fans and then everything else, including a lot of Lakers fans... What's surprising is that the Nuggets don't really have a fan base here while the Broncos do, they're the biggest NFL team here by far. We get Jazz, Nuggets, and Suns games on the Fox Sports local package. The NBA pay-per-view is what saves me!

wow, oct/nov 2006 was terrible months haha

i was born in falmouth, lived in texas and georgia, and currently live in new bedford (MA).

celticsblog was around before oct/nov 2006. I remember my rondo/telfair poll after the draft, where I was saying that rondo will be the better player, but 75% or so of celticsbloggers were voting for Sebastion "through the fire" Telfair (pats self on back ;D ) I think my sn on the old celticsblog was "connorhenry" or something. Spelled wrong too. Anyways, i'm originally from Boston, been living in Santa Cruz CA, but might be moving to Southern California.

Just a thought, but i wonder if someone with a LOT of time on their hands wants to go through this thread and make one list of everyone and where they live. So let's say you lived in Santa Cruz for instance ;) , you could quickly see who lives near you. Anyways, I'm sure myself and many others would give many tommy points for such a list. I think it's a grat idea :D  I should maybe even get a TP for the idea.  :P

Springfield Missouri, home of Brad Pitt ( No kidding, I went to high school with him), Payne Stewart, Cashew Chicken (it was invented here) and at least 2 and I can't remember for sure but maybe 3 Masters Champions, Horton Smith, Oscar Bloom, and Payne?

Also, home of the Missouri State Bears, a basketball powerhouse in the 1950's and lately having such notable coaches as Steve Alford and Charlie Spoonhour.

Born in Boston, moved to Watertown, then lived most of my life (5-21) in Belmont. Lived about 5 years in Medford with my wife and kids. Now we live in Southern Utah about 1.5 hrs. from Vegas, sad the C's aren't in the summer league...
Lived in North Andover Mass until I was 4, Moved to Fresno California until I was 23 and having been living in Los Angeles for the past 5 years

Good to have you reppin' Green

We have alot of Celtics fans here in LA.... Clipper games usually have more Celtics fans... And we definitely have a big presence at Laker games.... I went to game 5 of the finals and it was crazy with Celtics fans, I even saw a family of 5 all wearing Rondo jerseys, It was NUTS!

The forum stats begin when I started building CelticsBlog v.3.0 in the last week of October of 2006. The site made its public debut on December 30, 2006. What we call CelticsBlog version 2.0 -- two WordPress blogs and phpBB2 forums -- were where all of the action was taking place. The majority of the membership numbers shown for December 2006 and January 2007 were made up of existing CB2 members who registered anew with CB3.

Post by: TheGreenThumb on July 06, 2008, 01:26:14 PM
Born in Manila, Philippines then immigrated to the U.S. I ended up finding work in So. CA _ Van Nuys then Pasadena (Los Angeles County) then Aliso Viejo (Orange County) _ living right in the heart of L'Soft Angeles Fakers land.   ;D

During the late 60s/early 70s, my Dad used to watch re-runs of old Celtics & 76ers NBA games _ and I fell in love with basketball and the Russell-era Celtics as a young child.  During the early 90s, I even considered a company sponsored relocation from CA to Boston, MA so that I could get to see more of the Celtics!  I chickened out on the move though 'cuz I did not know a single soul in Boston (other than my co-workers).

Born in Redbank, NJ, lived in Brazil (Campos and Rio) for 2 years, grew up in Waveland, MS, spent all of adult life in New Orleans, La until last year when we moved to Morristown, NJ.

I'm amazed at how few C-bloggers come from the Boston area. Up until I came to this blog, I always thought that all Celtics fans were from New England. I guess this shows the power of the Internet (or my ignorance). I'd be curious to see a thread about why people (not from NE) became Celtics fans. I don't believe that it just happens if you live in a place like Nebraska. You need either a Boston connection or a family member who rooted for the team while you were growing up or a dream to be Larry Bird.

I'm from the Southeastern US. I am a Celtic fan because my family got me into it. My parents grew up in Michigan, but my Dad really liked the Russell Celtics and he's been a fan ever since. He raised all of us to be Celtic fans too.

I live in a small mining town in Nevada.  I started pulling for the Celts when I was 8 years old, mostly because my Dad was a fan. That was in 1965.  All through school I was the only one that liked Boston.  I never stopped.

I probably would've never been a Cs fan if there was a pro hoops team within 100 miles of me.  I grew up in Waveland, MS (about 40 mintues east of New Orleans), and the Jazz were gone in '79.  I identified with the Cs because of the shamrock and name (Irish roots), Larry and their general working class demeanor when compared to the flashy Lakers.  Once drawn in, if there are compelling aspects to the team and players, then you're stuck, and the Cs didn't lack for compelling personalities or for drama.

When you capture a kid's imagination, then actual proximity to Boston is the least of your concerns.  The 80s, thankfully, featured a lot of Cs games, so one could keep cultivating one's fanhood.  It was definitely increasingly difficult to maintain close ties when things went lean because TV spots went way down. 

Then comes the explosion of the net and league pass, and you can follow closer than ever.

How about watching that same white guy

For all I knew at the time, basketball
was a "black" sport. I'd only watched the
Globetrotters beat up the Generals
on so many occasions. That was what I knew
about basketball.
That wasn't me being racist or fascist or
whatever. That was just me being a kid who
really didn't know much about anything.

Besides, I totally fell in love with the
Celtics color scheme and their logo.

I had no connection to the Boston area
and I still don't. I'm the only one in my
family who likes b-ball.
I think us fans come in so many shapes and
forms, it's quite interesting.

By the way, the "Where are you from?" thing
works on different levels.

I chimed in about 15 or so pages ago but I thought I'd assure those outside of Boston that Boston based Celtics fans do indeed blog here.

I was born, raised, and still reside in Everett, Mass which, for those not familiar with the area, borders Boston(Charlestown) on the north and our city hall is all of 1.3 miles away from Boston City Hall.

Which makes me wonder, does anyone here live closer to the TD BankNorth Garden than I do? If I hopped in the car I could drive and be in front of the Garden in probably 5 minutes or less.

Well this simple question has always been one very tricky for me to answer:

- I was born in Cabinda, a little triangle of territory that currently belongs to Angola but is separate from the main area of Angola, being stuck between the two Congos.
- At the time I was born, it was still a Portuguese colony. After the independence, my family, as most of the Portuguese residents, left the country. I wasn't yet 2 years old. My family settled in Senegal (west africa) after a short transition in the french Congo. I stayed in Senegal all my childhood, between 1976 and 1989. Then I left to Paris to complete my studies.
- Finally, I return to my family's homeland, Portugal, in 1995. Since then I start working in Porto (north of Portugal and home of my beloved FC Porto - a soccer team) and then moved to Lisbon (south centre of Portugal) in 2001.

I've been following and supporting the Celtics since 1982

Like the little flags shows im from Brazil. I was born and raised in Brasilia, the capital and federal district. Now i`m 31 old. My history with the Celtics started between 86-87 when my father returns after a trip in the US, bringing a jersey of the Celtics # 33. I was just a kid, had very little knowledge of the NBA, but the name in the back of the jersey (some dude named Bird..haha) was the great reason i instantly become a fan. I will explain. My last name is Passarinho, in portuguese means............Bird!!! Yeah!!! man, was fate. Pure and simple.

Sorry, but right now CelticsBlog doesn't provide us with any way to sort or filter members by country. The good news is that I do plan on providing us ways to do that in CB5. In the new site members will have member profiles much different from and much more extensive than what we currently have in CB4. Included in those will be some optional fields where members can provide information about what country, state/province, and probably actual geocode (location code) -- all of which we all can use to search and sort. It should make finding members by country and so on pretty easy.

I talked to Google a little over a year and a half ago about us being able to use Google geomaps to map out where members where located around the world. What I wanted to do was create a live AJAX world map that could be rotated and zoomed that would show this info. The idea was to be able to have popups for each person that would provide just a bit of information about each as well as provide links to each member profile.

At the time they told me that our membership was just too large for us to use their geomapping services for free due to the load it would put on their mapping servers. They also said though that if I would take them up on their offer of becoming a fully-sanctioned Google Developer, they would cut me a deal on the geomapping. All I had to do was send them a check for $12,000 USD once a year for the privilege. Needless to say I told them "thanks but no thanks" and graciously bowed out of the offer. I will check back with them again when I get some geocode tools in CB5 and will look for some geomapping alternatives to Google as well.

I'm probably talking way over my head here, as my education is more business oriented, but i've been developing a website for the company i'm employed with, and in my search for mapping, i came across a free site that uses google maps.  Aardvark is the name of it, and it allows for pinpointing of locations and some brief info. 

Hope the info is helpful, and not just uneducated babble...

G'day guys!

Long time Celtics fan here from Adelaide, South Australia (hence the uncreative username!)

Have been a big Boston fan ever since the early 90s, when the NBA was at it's peak of popularity in AUS.

Have been to Boston once in October 1996, Antoine Walker had just been drafted a few months prior. Still a pipe dream of mine to visit again and see a match.

Back in the days when I first started following the NBA, the only way to stay informed of results was seeing the final scoreline in the newspaper the following day and the AU $2.95 weekly basketball newspaper that came out (it's proper name escapes me for the moment.

So much better now, with live games on TV and of course great sites such as this one!

Look forward to contributing with my view from down under. Even though for the majority of the games I'm just getting the raw stats from the Yahoo NBA site ;)

Hey guys!

I've just signed up on this great blog, though I've been reading it for months now. I'm French and so as you can guess I live in France, and I hope you'll excuse my english which may be poor sometimes! :P

I've discovered the NBA about 3 years ago, my favourite team at the time were the Suns. When I found that the "Big Three" was build last summer, I began watching the Celtics' games, though I hadn't seen Pierce, Garnett and Allen play before that, so I discovered the three of them for the first time as Celtics... I was amazed by the collective game and the quality basket-ball played by the team so I enjoyed it and then I became a fan. Watching C's' games at 3 am (thanks to the time difference) is now something usual for me. ;D

Needless to say that the 2008 championship was really great, and that I hope that the Celtics can repeat this year!

Hey everybody,

I'm from Greece, Athens, and I'm a huge fan of the Celtics' team... I rarely miss a match and that would be because some games against Western teams start at about 10.00pm ET, which is 5.00am in my country(freaky,hah... ;D)! Otherwise, I have watched every single home game and I'm trying to keep up with this blog to stay informed!!

I also want to let you know(I guess most of you don't know...)that my favorite team in Greece is called Panathinaikos and a trefoil is our emblem, too, green-white jerseys, etc! Panathinaikos is the greatest basketball franchise in Greece and one of the greatest in Europe, along with Maccabi Tel Aviv and CSKA Moscow! So, I'm dreaming of a Celtics-Panathinaikos friendly game in the near future, that would be perfect!

I'm so glad to be a member of this blog, great job and great posts by everyone... And I like the quality of this blog's members, which is indubitable for sure!! Keep up with the good stuff guys... ;)

Hi everybody,
I'm from Indonesia. I started loving the Celtics back in my high school days in 1986 when the local TV started showing an NBA game every 2 weeks for 1 hour each. (imagine wathcing this condensed game  :-[ )They showed more of the Celts Lakers game, and I began to love the Green and hate the Lakers (really really hate them!) My all time fav is McHale, love his ballet move which is always different every time.
I went on to study at Texas A&M in 87, enduring the long drought that the Celtics had till last year, following the Bird's era in late 80's, going back to my country in 94,  missing out the 1994-1998 era, and thanks to Internet, started following up on the Celtics again in 2000's.  Thank God, finally I could see the Celts winning it all last year  :)
Really love this blog where I can feel the brotherhood of us who love the Celtics. Yeah! Many NBA followers here in my country are actually Lakers fans.
Anyway, thanks for the blog again. Keep it up folks, hopefully I can contribute too soon.

Hey guys!

I've just signed up on this great blog, though I've been reading it for months now. I'm French and so as you can guess I live in France, and I hope you'll excuse my english which may be poor sometimes! :P

I've discovered the NBA about 3 years ago, my favourite team at the time were the Suns. When I found that the "Big Three" was build last summer, I began watching the Celtics' games, though I hadn't seen Pierce, Garnett and Allen play before that, so I discovered the three of them for the first time as Celtics... I was amazed by the collective game and the quality basket-ball played by the team so I enjoyed it and then I became a fan. Watching C's' games at 3 am (thanks to the time difference) is now something usual for me. ;D

Needless to say that the 2008 championship was really great, and that I hope that the Celtics can repeat this year!

See you on the forum!

I have run into more Celtic fans than you would think.  The Celtic fans repersented well at the game against the Rockets here in Houston.

During the early 80's until 1986, I lived in Acton, Mass with my family.  I became a Celtic fan watching those 80's teams and have followed ever since.

Los Angeles, CA. Lived here for almost two years. Born and raised on the Cape. Went to school in Boston. Grew up watching the Celtics all my life. They are my favorite sports team. Paul Pierce is my favorite player. I don't know if anyone else can relate to this but I recorded game 6 of the finals last year on my DVR. For about a month straight I would watch the game in its entirety at least a few times a week. I would probably still be watching it if I still had my cable. Die hard fan, I try and watch all of the games. Representing the C's in LA is fun. Dangerous but fun.. haha.

Almost no one here cares about the Celtics, and it's really sad. It's all Patriots and Redsox. Way too many bandwagon jumpers in this area too (Kobe and Lebron fans). A few years ago, I was probably 1 of 4 people in this city that watched every celtic game I could.

Agreed, I go to UMass, and a lot of my friends from western mass either don't care about the Celtics or for some reason sweat Kobe.  These are also the same people who told me Tyler Hansbrough wasn't a top 3 player on his own team.

Last year, what got me the most was looking through the windows at McMurphy's and seeing every single TV on the Sox game.  That's fine and all, but this was during the CELTICS PLAYOFFS!!!  I was so mad.  How can you disrespect during a Celtics playoffs game?

The advantage though is that when you are a Celtics fan at UMass, you get to meet fellow Celtics fans who are true fans.  I remember one night I was at the bars and this kid went up to me and told me he had worked with me at Mullins Center for a day and remembered me talking about the Celtics when they were really bad.  So when he saw me (this was last year) he complimented me on fanship.  He was saying something along the lines of me being a true Celtics fan and that I deserve this.  That was pretty cool.

Yup.  Moved down there for a miserable winter a year after I was out of college.  Spent most of the winter either stuck in traffic or serving wealthy private club members food.

I've worked with a guy from Makedonia and he is a big basketball fan.  We watch games sometimes (like last Monday) but unfortunately he is a Lakers fan.  I call him a bandwagon fan, haha!  Anyway, we have been trying to watch the Celtics live and now some World Cup games.  He tells me how he's not a big fan of the Greek.

I'm from Maine, and as a matter of fact, most of my friends here are from other countries, (Denmark, Netherlands, US, El Salvador, Israel, Philippines, Mexico, Japan, China, England, Scotland, and on and on), and we probably have one of the most diverse groups of bloggers in the sports world .... it matters not here, because we're all just sharing in our love of the Celtics.

I was born on Norrebro and had a wonderful childhood in Copenhagen in the '70s.  In the early '80s, at the age of eleven, my American parents moved the family back to the States.  I have stayed connected to Denmark throughout the years, and have gone back many times.  I still have friends and family over in Kobenhavn.  

I haven't been back in, gosh, five years now, but I'm planning a big trip to Copenhagen for this coming "Jul".  I'm taking my family.  It'll be the first time my youngest daughter who is now 6 has been to the country of my birth.  We are all really looking forward to it.  It's been way too long.

Back in '02 my family had come to Boston for medical reasons and we spent a little over a month in the city. My uncle, who went to college in PA, was a long time 76ers fan. The first pro ball game I ever attended was the Eastern Conference first round against the 76ers, who the Celts demolished.

The rest was a gloriously green history. Watching Antoine Walker and PP play was just incomprehensible to my young mind. Been a Celtic guy ever since.

Quito, Ecuador....when I was a child my family moved to Boston. I now live in California for the last 15 yrs.
Welcome and TP! My "Sister" Patti lives in Quito, (originally from Guayaquil).
 
She was an AFS student with my family during her high school years, when I was in Jr. High and my brother and sister in high school, and has been a part of my family ever since.
 
She visits every year and we have all been to Ecuador a number of times. I loved Salinas Beach and the Galapagos, though the difference between the classes is still very stark ... love the people!
 
Her entire family has been part of our family ever since ... they all visit, and she has a sister in Lawrence who comes up to Maine wuite often as well.
 
Patti has been the personal assistant (and lawyer) to the President of Ecuador for some time, (even during changes in administration), and is still unmarried and loviong it, (it makes perfect sense if you knew her ... the biggest control freak I've ever known by far, though I love her dearly).

Here she is with my biological Sis and the Ecuadorian President/Administration:

She had four sisters, (one has since passed), so having a little brother, (which she still calls me), is a big deal to her, and she not only spoils me a bit, but loves to tease the heckouta me, and dig her long fingernails into my arm whenever she's scared or laughing.

I hope to see her again this June, if all goes well.

Welcome to CelticsBlog ... I hope it's a long stay! :)

Any more Ecuadorians out there?

Cruzans?

Filipinas?

Haitians?

We are a diverse group, so please share your stories!

A wannabe city, about 15 mins out of Boston, called Medford.

Or "Meffa," as those who don't live in "Meffa" call it.

Or "Medfid Kid", as those who live in Medford call it.

It's one of those places where you can't walk down the street without getting stared down by every single person you pass. Heck, even old ladies have stared me down here.

I am from Mos Eisley, Tatooine, which is known to many as a pirate city. Overrun by criminal transients on the lam, Mos Eisley has been described as a wretched hive of scum and villainy. Mos Eisley is one of the largest spaceports on Tatooine. Its architecture is typical of the Tatooine style -- blockhouses largely sunken into the sand, providing some respite from the relentless desert suns. The city is arranged in a wheel formation, with the central power and water distribution plants at its hub. Circular docking bays and landing pads dot the city, and the sky is busy with interstellar traffic.

 ;)
 


I have a buddy that use to hang out at a cantina there. But one night he got a little wasted, bumped into a young farm boy, and then suddenly got his arm cut off by this old wizard. Luckily for him, they have made alot of progress with the biomechanical technology to create a life-like appendage that works just as well as the original.

This is too weird, man! I knew this guy - a transporter, mainly, (yeah, right ... really a pirate, if you ask me)  - who had this bucket-of-bolts ship he called the Phoenix ... no, the Falcon - yeah, that was it - the Millenium Falcon, (where do these guys get these names?!?!)

Anyway, this hunk-of-junk freighter was held together with bantha-glue and minoch saliva, but it was still dressed out with hyper-drive, and as fast as any in the quadrant ... maybe the galaxy.

Well, this old barge had supposedly made the Kessel Run in some un-godly time, so this guy, (the captain/owner), Han I think his name was, (no "s" ... he always made a point of saying that, don't ask me why), would hang around in these back-alley cantinas on Mos Eisley, waiting for some desperate spacer to show up with a sob-story and a pocket-full of Imperial credits, (then do his best to drain 'em of every one, so he could turn around and blow 'em all on the pod races).

So the last time I was in Mos Eisley, (looking for a bio-splice for my lady's jack-unit), I run into ol' Han, and he tells me he's got this "sure thing", and that he just needs a "small bump" of credits to get this giant slug Jabba off his back long enough to get the Falcon to Alderan and back. Well, I dunno where the heck this rancor-bait has been for the last hundred revs, but wherever it is, they obviously don't have enough e-links to know the real deal, or else he's been spiked on jawa juice long enough to melt Hoth!

Anyway, I proceed to inform him that he might as well forget his little romp to Alderan, 'cuz whatever he was after there is now space-dust, (along with Alderan itself). Well, he starts laughing his you-know-what off, saying that's the best one he's heard all week, and that he's got some big hairy friend who'd love to hear it, too.

Only problem is I'm not laughing with him ... in fact I'm not even grinning, and when he starts to realize this, the laughter fades, and his face turns as cold as nitrogen. Next thing I know, he's shaking a blaster in my face, saying how's I'd better not waste any more of his "precious" time, (yeah ... he used air-quotes, but only one hand, 'cuz the other was on the blaster, can you believe that?!?), or else I'll get to know what a particle beam tastes like ... for the first and last time.

Well, as depressed as I am from just being in this hind-end of space, that bit of info doesn't cheer me up too much. And even though I can see the warm glow of neutrons jumping the gap of his trigger mechanism, I've still gotta fill this pirate in, whether my medulla oblongata survives or not.

So, I start tellin this asteroid how the Empire's got this new toy, and that one of the mucky-mucks was tryin' to make a big wave with this Princess What's-her-name, and Alderan was the casualty. Well ... he's still standin' there, with this Tusken Raider look on his face, and the blaster switch is starting to glow red, (and is now close enough to smell - and neutrons ain't roses, baby!), so I figure I've still got AU's to cover and press on.

So then I say I'm not messin' with him, and that the mucky-muck general has got a "size problem", if he knows what I mean, (and I wink here), and that he was trying to make a point and impress this Princess, by blowing Alderan into oblivion with this new toy the Empire gave him to play with.

Well, the Tusken Raider look is still plastered to his cratered mug, and the blaster's now beginning to make that little rumbling sound, (you know, the one it makes right before it "pops"), and I figure I've got nothing to lose at this point, so what the heck. So then I take my thumb, ('cuz the apertures on these new PB's is BIG, man!), and I lick it real casual-like, and just stick it in the end of the blaster ... like so.

Well ... I dunno what reaction I was looking for, but it certainly wasn't the one I got. Slowly the Sand-people vacancy leaves his face, and one corner of his mouth curls, (just the tiniest bit), and he just lets go of the blaster, so I'm left standing there with the glowing, rumbling particle-beam weapon stuck to my thumb. Well, by now the gap on the switch is a steady stream, and my thumb is getting all warm and tingly, and it's spreading to the rest of my hand, and up my arm.

I know what you're thinking, 'cuz I was thinking it, too: Why the heck in all of space is the crazy thing still engaged, if he's not holding the trigger mechanism? So now I'm the one with the Sand-Raider look on my face, and he's standing there with that curled lip, kind of glancing from side-to-side, and muttering the name "Guido" under his breath ... over-and-over, real slow, like. My hand is completely numb now, up to my elbow, and it's right then, when I'm about to reach up with my other hand and pull the thing off, that I see it: The lousy space-pirate's got a beam key, and it's synced with the PB stuck to my thumb.

Well, I figure at this point that I'm pretty much Ton-ton poo-doo, and that for some reason beyond my lacking, this guy has set me up! All manner of bizarre musings are swirling in my skull, like this guy's on dark-matter capsules, or he mistakes me for some henchman that the Hutt slug has after him, or that he plans on stealing my Nubian cruiser, or that maybe ... just maybe, he's a left-over from the Clone Wars who's dealing with some major PTSD.

Anyway, just when the numbness begins to reach my shoulder, and I think he's ready to bolt and detonate the beam-key from a safe distance, in walks this cloaked old guy with a beard as white as Imperial armor, and a light-saber hanging from his belt. That's right, a light-saber! Here, standing in this dump of a dive in the rear-end of space-ports, is a freaking Jedi! Well [dang]ed if I know what he was doing there, but after the last twnety minutes of dealing with Captain Crater-brain, I was just happy for a break in the monotany!

So over saunters this old Jedi, like he owns the place, (you know that swagger they have), and stops about six feet from the two of us, and looks us each up and down, his eyes coming to rest on the glowing blaster, which is now rumbling louder than ever. Well ... I don't know what these two jumpers were up to, but it was clear they knew each other, and it was clear this meeting was not a total surprize. Without saying a word, the Jedi, with his left hand resting on the hilt of the light-saber, just raises his right hand ever so slightly, wiggles the very tip of his index finger, and the blaster just pops from my thumb, (with a sound like popping your cheek), and drops to the floor ... cold as ice!

Now, don't get me wrong, I was extremely pleased to have that stupid thing off my thumb, and have the life slowly returning to my hand and arm. But the attitude of these Jedi ... well, it just gets to me somehow. I mean, here we were, having a perfectly confusing, life-threatening encounter, and in walks this "robed royalty" of the Force, who just wags his little pointer and ruins the whole thing! Who do they think they are? Guardians of the Galaxy or something? (Oh, yeah ... I guess they are). Well, despite that, I didn't like the interference, and by a glance at Han, I knew he wasn't real pleased with how things were turning out, either.

He was now looking like he had just given birth to an Ewok, and though his lip was still curled, a small bit of clear liquid was escaping from the corner, and it wasn't enhancing his appearance, if you know what I mean. Whatever the "robed one" had on him, it was obviously time to pay up, and the coffers were empty. Well, whatever the reason, and whatever the intent, it was very clear that I was now just an observer ... and I didn't like it ... not one bit.

But, even though my mind raced with thoughts of derring-do, (like rolling on the floor, grabbing the PB, jumping up, and wasting the lot ... or doing a flip in mid-air, disarming the Jedi, and landing with a defensive stance), I was forced to resort to collecting my pride and leaving. Now, some say I actually ran from the place, but I don't see how they can know, with it being so dark and everything. And I've heard stories over the years of what took place there after I left - harrowing tales of intense light-saber battles, of limbs being removed, of giant slugs and rancors, of the Almighty Carnac and indigestion ... but I don't take them seriously.

Whatever it was that Han wanted from me, I'll never know, and whatever it was that was going on between the two of them, will remain a mystery. But the thing that really gets to me ... late at night when my mind is restless and I can't sleep, is what it was that was so important to Han on Alderan ... what it was he lost, that made him feel so compelled to risk both our lives to resolve it. I'll never know, I guess, because they say he's still on Tatooine, in Mos Eisley, and that's one place I'm not visiting again ... ever! Hey ... know anyone who'd like a Nubian Cuiser ... real cheap?

(Thanks for indulging my sci-fi musings ... I couldn't help myself!)

Bakhu, I just want you to know, you've easily put away the race for the inaugural award for "Dude Who Routinely Causes Me Greatest Amusement At Ungodliest of Hours."  Well done, sir.  Always a pleasure to read your musings...which always seem to span the widest scope imaginable.

-sw
Seeing this thread again reminded me of this little story I had fun with, and I don't think I ever thanked you (SW) for your appreciation of my fits of absurd imagination, (which usually took place late at night, when we seemed to be the only two on the site - and often were) ... I miss those days, your column "The Daily Babble", and your stories of The Guru, (who I pray is doing well). One thing that remains constant is change, and losing those things and the old friend that inspired this little story with his original post, (who often brought a smile to my face), makes me a bit sad ... but it's also treasure that I'll forever keep in my deep (but worn) pockets, and bring out from time-to-time, to sparkle in the sun. Thanks ... officially. :)

Bumping old threads is the best - TP.  I love this forum for that feature, most of the time they get locked.  Western MA by the way, now I live on the other side of the country

Most of the old threads can be brought back to life.  They usually ask if you would rather start a new one...if the old one hasn't been active for a considerable stretch of time, but will reactivate after that prompt...
