Pierce has left the building

A crowd of about 40 Celtics fans awaited Paul Pierce as he exited the players’ parking lot outside the TD Banknorth Garden around 3:05 a.m. As Pierce pulled away in his Humvee, fans surrounded the car and chanted “M-V-P, M-V-P.” Two police officers assisted the vehicle in leaving, but it took a little work.

Your humble blogger was able to bypass any potential trouble and walk home safely. Crowds around the Canal Street bars had fizzled to a handful of patrons by that point.

Thanks, all, for following along with us this season. I hope you had half as much fun following the news as I had bringing it to you. Cheers.
