So the Beans (including Kara, not shown … long story) were there at ECS with us to ring out 2010 with 2,010 made foul shots, in style. As the fingers (and Rondo’s number) clearly show, it happened in 1:19 — an hour and 19 minutes — and some change. That’s the fastest yet for 2,000, and we even threw in the bonus 10 in the spirit of the old year. That’s 575,017 down, 424,983 to go to 1 million made foul shots.
Now it’s off to Boston Garden, where Hoops For Heroes will be recognized during today’s Celtics-Hornets game, and I’ll be hoping to ring in the new year with one shot. Here’s the thing: They’ve told me I’ve got one shot. Not one made shot, but one shot … during the second time out of the second quarter, from what I understand — in hopes of 2,011 for 2011.
All of which leads me to the following question as we get ready for our trip south: What’s the best thing to wear when you’re planning to throw up in front of 18,000 people?
