TD Garden - Celtics & Bruins Tips (11)

MEETING CHARLES BARKLEY

One of my favorite Boston college memories is when my friend Lane, an employee of a popular news channel, called me up and invited me to go see a Boston Celtics game. I agreed in a heart beat to go especially after Lane admitted that he had a friend he wanted to set me up with. Little did I know at the time that he was referring to Charles Barkley. Needless to say, once I found out he was married, the guys was off limits, I did date a team mate of his for a short time.

Anyway, back to the game. We sat in the press box which was awesome. The ball even landed right in front of us at one point. I actually kept my VIP neck pass and the magazine and papers that hand out for keeping stats. One of these days I'll dig them out and put a pic of them up.

The Garden, Fleet Center, TD Banknorth Garden

The name may change by the time you read this. Over the years it has been called the Boston Garden, the Fleet Center, and TD Banknorth Garden. Most of my memories are of the 1980's glory days of the Celtics: Larry Bird, Robert Parish, Kevin McHale, Dennis Johnson, Danny Ainge, at al.
These days I only go to the Garden for concerts.
The Sports Museum of New England is located inside the TD Banknorth Garden, on the 5th and 6th floor.

The Celtics

Celtics games haven't been the same since the Boston Garden was replaced by the Fleet Center which was renamed the TD Bank North Garden. This has something to do with the venue, but it probably has more to do with the memories of years gone by.

Still, watching the Celtics live in action what ever the name of the arena is well worth the effort.

Fleet Centre Tour

Visiting the Fleet Centre is a must for the serious basketball fans.

The Boston Celtics have a steep tradition of winning which everyone appreciates.

The Franchise has brought basketball the nostalgic eras and the great players. Once cannot pass the great games of Celtics vs Lakers throughout the eighties. Bird vs Magic.

Fleet Center

Lacking the intimacy of the gritty old Garden, the thoroughly modern Fleet Center compensates with creature comforts and conveniences galore. Every seat is comfortable and offers a good view; the sound system is terrific; the temperature is always right on.

Seating nearly 20,000 (18,854 basketball, 17,565 hockey), the FleetCenter has over 100 luxury boxes, plenty of restrooms and concession stands, hundreds of TVs and a gigantic electronic wizard of a scoreboard. Those who've bought exclusive premium seats will feel like royalty, with waitstaff delivering food and drinks right to them. There's also dining in the Premium Restaurant.

one of the original 6

Bruins, that is. Original 6 NHL teams that is. Along with the likes of Detroit Redwings, New York Rangers (I know them all, but won't bore you).
We got off the plane from Brussels, dumped our stuff at the airport hotel, and went straight to the Fleet Center for game against Montreal Canadiens.
My first NHL experience. Loved it.
Unfortunately, a combination of a long day travelling, time difference, too much pizza & beer meant my son and I were almost asleep midway thru 3rd period, and had to leave early! Tough when tickets are so expensive! We paid $77 each. Worth it tho'.

Equipment Tickets - available via website.
Cash for pizza & beer.
Credit card for merchandise (my son still treasures his Bruins shirt).

Now Renamed the TD Garden

The Boston TD Garden was also known as the Fleet Center and since in 2005, this was renamed as such, so attention tip editor of boston! please make the necessary changes!

why this is the Home arena of the Boston Celtics if you are a basketball fanatic and also the home of the Boston Bruins, if your a fanatic of Ice Hockey. This is definitely a thing to do as if you are a basketball fan like me (but not the Boston Celtics hehe) then this place is wortj a visit. You can watch a game of Hockey or Basketball when in season or just buy merchandise of the teams in the number of shops inside.

It is just a short walk from Fanueil hall and has connections to the Orange Line and Green Line of the MBTA.

Equipment none, you can buy jerseys, banners, memorabilia and more inside the stores in the TD Garden.

Sports heaven

The Boston Bruins - Hockey
The New England Patriots - Football
The Boston Red Sox - Baseball
The Boston Celtics - Basketball

Boston has a team in five major sports leagues. Fenway Park is the oldest baseball park in the baseball league. The old Boston Garden opened in 1928 but was replaced by the current TD Garden about 10 years ago and is connected to the North train station as well which makes it really convenient for transportation both within the city and if you're staying outside it. The Celtics and the Bruins both play here.

Boston's major sports teams have all won championships in their respective leagues in the last few years, quite a coup for Boston's reputation as a sport city.

Meet Jordan in Fleet Center

I watched two NBA games in Fleet Center this game season, one was Celtics vs. Rockets, the other was Celtics vs. Wizard.

Yao Ming is the star in Rockets. It was a Chinese Night when Yao Ming came to Boston. Lots of Chinese students gathered in Fleet Center that night, and it was so exicting for Chinese to share the wonderful evening.

It was the last night for Jordan to play with Celtics in NBA. Fortunately, I caught that chance to see Jordan's genius show. It is amazing to see the 40 years old guy playing basketball so skillfully and artfully.

Equipment As a student, NBA is luxury. But $30 for Yao and $60 for Jordan were good deal and valuable.

Celtics

In addition to either catching a Celtics or Bruins game, one thing I did not know about the Fleet Center is that there is a museum located there that covers many New England teams. The museum pieces are actually shown along a corridor that goes around the secodn or third floor. It is very well-done with uniforms, photographs, newspapers, etc. There's a ton of memorabilia and much goes way back in time which makes it pretty interesting. This museum would be best suited for the avid sports fan.

Catch a hockey game!

The Fleetcenter is the home of the Boston Bruins these days. When they're playing, you can catch a game there. The views are reasonably good from all but the upper seats.

The photo shows a game from Thanksgiving 1999...the Vancouver Canucks came to town.

Equipment Just bring yourself!
