Stephen Bailey's Profile 

Stephen Bailey is currently a freshman at Syracuse University majoring in Sport Management. He is a diehard Celtics and Red Sox fan, but also actively follows the Bruins and Patriots. He is also the owner and editor in chief at Beantown Banter. Earlier in 2010, Bailey interned in the Sports Department of the New Haven Register, interviewed multiple athletes, including ex-Celtic Ryan Gomes, and worked as part of a team to get the section done every weeknight. He covers both Swimming & Diving and Tennis for The Daily Orange, SU's school paper. In his free time, Bailey enjoys playing pickup basketball, beating his floormates in NBA 2K11, and sporcling for hours on end. Although he is unsure exactly what he wants to do for a career, it has always been his dream to cover the Celts and Sox.


I Miss the Celtics
I miss the Celtics. I miss the battles on the hardwood, pre-games, and post-games. I miss Tommy and Mike Gorman, and yes even Greg Dickerson. I miss the rush of adrenaline that each contest provides. I miss knowing that at the end of a long day of school and work the C's will be there for me to watch at night.

I miss Ray Allen. I miss him pulling up and hitting three-pointers in transition. I miss his silky smooth jumper and hot streaks matched by almost no one in the league.

I miss Paul Pierce. I miss the captain and I miss the Truth. I miss his trademark turn-around elbow jumper. I miss his fist pump after hitting a clutch shot. I miss his aggressive drives to the rim and intensity on defense. I even miss his dice-roll handshake after a big play.

I miss KG. I miss him banging his head against the base of the basket before games. I miss his backdoor oop off of Rondo's alley lob. I miss him crawling on the floor screaming at his teammates in the fourth quarter of a blowout win.

I miss Rondo. I miss his ridiculous ball fakes, awe inspiring passes, and Cousyesque ball-handling ability. I miss him pestering opposing point guards and forcing turnovers.

I miss Perk. I miss his glare. I miss his scrappy play cleaning up boards and setting countless screens. I miss his strong interior defense, limiting superstars like Dwight Howard. I miss hearing his interviews after games, he always tells it how it is.

I miss Doc. I miss his motivational "We've got to do it together" pre-game and timeout speeches. I miss the way he treats refs. I miss the yelling, the cold shoulder, and the Doc sarcastic laugh with arms crossed.

I miss the bench. I miss Big Baby's hustle and effort plays on the offensive end, and I miss Nate's knock down outside shooting. I miss Scal's hair and his energy on the sidelines.

I miss the Celtics.
