Celtics Meet with President Bush

His country deep in an epic economic crisis (though his administration’s plan to stimulate the economy has led to two straight big days on Wall Street), President Bush still found enough time to welcome the NBA Champion Boston Celtics to the White House.

“It’s amazing how sports works, isn’t it?” Bush said. “At the beginning of the season, few would have predicted how it would have ended . . . The two-decade championship drought was pretty likely to continue. At least that’s what the experts said. There’s a lot of experts in life these days. You probably hadn’t noticed.”

According to the Globe’s Frank Del’Appa, Sam Cassell, Eddie House, and James Posey (now with New Orleans) were missing from the event because of “personal reasons,” according to Celtics director of media relations Jeff Twiss.

Bush did see most of the team Friday, and has seen Boston sports teams often during his eight years in office: the 2001, 2003, and 2004 New England Patriots, the 2004 and 2007 Boston Red Sox, and these NBA Champion Celtics.

Could President Bush be good luck to the teams in Boston? If so, their luck is about to run out as Bush has only a few months left in office.

“I wish you well for the very next season,” he said. “Should you win it, you can find me in Texas.”
