As I mentioned a couple days ago and have already discussed with a few people one here... I have decided to create a thread where people can share their experiences at the Garden. People can share stories, pictures, etc in this thread. This is not limited to Celtics games. If anybody goes to a Bruins game, a concert, or anything else at the Garden they can share that here as well. Also whoever goes to Fenway or Gillette first this year can create similar threads for those places as well.

Anyway, I won tickets to the Celtics/Kings game on Friday night by doing one of those trivia contests that Jeff sets up on here. As I've discussed with others I took my girlfriend, it was a first for both us to go to a Celtics game, though we had both been to the Garden before for concerts. We had a great time. The $80 tickets were completely unexpected. We were sitting right next to other people who also won their tickets on Celtics blog (Didn't catch their names?)...

I am excited to see pictures of people who gets great seats at games or get good pictures of Celtics players.

Edgar, I am hoping you put your pictures up from when you went... I never got to see those.  :-\

Well... that's all I'm going to say for now because I started "Gone With the Wind" on like Tuesday and I am determined to finish it tonight. Enjoy the thread everybody!

I can post some of my Celtics pics later but one of my ultimate Garden experiences was seeing AC DC in concert back in late 2008.  I had pretty amazing seats in the loge.

Yeah really cool thread... TP!

I'm going to try to upload the pics on my cell phone from going to the pre-season Celtics Vs. Nets game, but I have to find the cord to do it.

That, is, awesome.

It's even got the all-important Boston College Beanpot Champions banner in there.   ;)

Glad the gf was with me because I was too delirious to know cameras even existed.

I gotta say there's some "regulars" at the games that I do love to see do their thing - in no particular order:

Grandpa/Santa - guy with the beige blazer and PP St. Paddy's jersey who gets going by punching his chest

Jack Black/Chicken Pecking guy - loves to dance and get the crowd into it - today he was wearing an Easter Bunny outfit and attempted to get courtside, hilarious watching him get rejected

Soulja Boy - no description needed

Bob Marley Guy - black guy with a jumpsuit that says "play bob Marley" love it

Aztec Gino - a sight to behold, in pea green outfit

Pea Green redhead suit lady - she's there a lot, doesn't do much, but love the suit

Feel free to continue this one..
