The Boston Celtics must be feeling pretty dejected after losing the NBA Finals in a Game 7 to the LA Lakers. Fortunately for the Celtics, they have celebrities (/cough, cough) to pat them on the back, give them a cookie dough log, and tell them that “everything’s going to be OK”. How did said celebrities console their crestfallen Celtics? By paying the Boston Globe for a full page newspaper ad.
A group of the Celtics’ most famous fans, ranging from actors and comedians to other Boston-area pro athletes, has honored the team with a full-page advertisement in the Globe this morning.
“You are our 2010 World Champions” reads the ad, which was signed by television personality Maria Menounos, comedian Dane Cook, actor Eliza Dushku and musician/actor Donnie Wahlberg. Patriots Wes Welker and Vince Wilfork and Wilfork’s wife, Bianca, also signed the ad, as did several others from the entertainment industry: — Chris Evans, Michael and Michelle Chiklis, Chris Ivery, Ellen Pompeo, Keven Undergaro and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. –Boston.com
I know who Cook, Dushku, Menounos, the Pats players, and Mintz-Plasse are. Outside of that, I have no idea. Does Mark Whalberg have a brother, and is he a musician? Jesus, that sounds terrible. If I was Brian Scalabrine, or any other Celtic for that matter, knowing Dane Cook felt sorry for me would make me more upset than the loss to the Lakers. At least the Lakers didn’t “act” in Good Luck Chuck, My Best Friend’s Girl, or Employee of the Month. I’d be the most upset if I had to actually watch those “movies.” If Eliza Dushku and Maria Menounos wanted to make me feel better, I could think of a couple things they could do. Like my laundry, for instance. The best kind of Celtics fans after the jump.
