I'd like to start off by thanking Brandon and Travis for bringing me in to share my opinion on Gino's Jungle...I have been a diehard Celtics fan my entire life, and Celtics season ticket holder since 2007.  For my first post in "The Jungle"  I would like to tell you how I pulled that off.

Before the 2006-07 season I heard about a special offer from WEEI for $10 tickets for the entire season and despite the team featuring guys like Michael Olowokandi, Sebastian Telfair, Allan Ray and Gerald Green, I could not turn that offer down.  I only missed one home game that season (Dec. 8 vs. Phoenix, one of the better games all year, but still a loss) as I went down to Maryland for a company party.
