I'd like to take this opportunity to officially welcome everyone to Hollywood, Massachusetts. Formerly known as Boston, this Eastern Coastal oasis has unexpectedly skyrocketed from a cramped village of grumpy townies, to an opulent community of good-hearted, not racist partisans. We've officially made it, baby! We now have other celebrity-athletes in town, giving Tom Brady the buddies that he's been ever-so-longing for.

Last night, the Boston based film, "Stronger," starring Jake Gyllenhaal, premiered at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charleston, MA, which is where many of the victims were treated after the 2013 travesty. The film chronicles the story of Jeff Bauman, a Boston Marathon bombing survivor, who lost both of his legs on that unforgetable Patriot's Day.

In attendace at the premier were two of our newer Boston Celtics professionals, Gordon Hayward and Al Horford, who were specially invited to the showing by the star of the movie, Jake Gyllenhaal. Yes, you heard me correctly: the Academy Award nominee summoned our green-wearing friends himself. Has Danny Ainge done it again or what? In addition to bringing in some top tier athletes, he's also given the entire city of Boston a collagen-filled face-lift. I hope his accomplice, Isaiah Thomas, is proud of the way that he's helped shape his community. (sigh)

Gyllenhaal is a Los Angelos native, but spent his childhood summers on Cape Cod. He's said in the past that he's a Boston Celtics' fan, but when asked for some clarification on the matter, Gyllenhaal evaded the question and gave a flimsy, bandwagon-esque answer.

We Boston fans don't play like that. You feel me? Gator never been about that. But seriously, Jake; if you know anything about Boston sports, then you know that you're either all in, or all out. There's no happy-medium here. And the thing is, this interview happened in 2010, so just two years before, Gyllenhaal's wish of a Celtics/Lakers matchup was granted, and he still hadn't decided where his loyalties lie!? That's bologna. I'm on to you, Gyllenhaal. We want an answer!

Fortunetly, I think that he gave it to us by inviting Big Money Horford and Gordie Haystacks to this event. It's rare to have a Cs' fan who isn't from Boston them self, or who doesn't play for a local team, so I'm welcoming this guy with open arms. Come on by anytime, Jake, and bring your friends!

What I'm wondering now is if last year's #1 Celtics' fan, LaGarrette Blount is still onboard the Cs' train. He was spotted semi-regularly, court-side over the past few seasons while he was a member of the New England Patriots, but he's no longer in town after signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, so his status is unknown. It'd be a heartbreaker to see him begin to Trust the Process, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did, especially after the brutal departure of his buddy IT4. That's the nature of the business, and you've got to ride with the crew that you're rolling with.

Regardless, forget about the Showtime Lakers, it's the Boston Celtics who are now in the spotlight. We're here, and we're here to stay! Bring on the Monstars! We're ready to take on whatever Hollywood can throw at us.
