#15: Shoutout to all the Celtics fans Bleeding Green in ISRAEL! 🇮🇱
Earl "The Twirl" Williams
Hey Celtics fans in Israel! celticslife.com has had 101,429 visits from Israel since we originated in September 2009, which puts you at #15 on our list of countries with the most visits. Thanks so much for all the love you've shown for the site these past 10+ years.
Trying to research Celtics with a connection to Israel was a bit of a task. Quickly a former Celtic from the late 1970's Earl Williams popped up and of course TB's blog post on him from 2013. Also in more recent times saw that Tony Gaffney has played four years in Israel of late. Gaffney, who was born in Boston and attended BU and UMASS in college, famously signed with the Celtics as a rookie in April 2010, never played a game, but I'm pretty sure he would have won a championship ring if the C's had held on in those Finals.
Not sure what other connections the Celtics have with Israel. Let me know if I missed someone.
