After seeing the legendary park, it was time for lunch at Cheers. Instead of a place where everyone knew our names, we got a tourist trap with mediocre food. When we finally arrives at the game, we were fully decked in our Thunder gear.
Of course, Zorgon won this game for a reason -- his enthusiastic cheering. During every Celtics free throw, my friend would yell "BRICK!" which was very audible in the otherwise silent arena. None of the home fans appreciated his cheers.
After the game we were heckled by the fans, ranging from the mild to the vulgar. Others had fun with the out-of-towners. Zorgon got so many photo requests, you might have though he actually played for the team cheered so loud for.

The best part about cheering against the Celtics at the Garden? The heckling. "I never knew Oklahoma City had so many fans!" one guy said upon seeing the two of us. I guess that was supposed to be funny. "Kevin Durant sucks!" shouted another guy. Was that supposed to be offensive? Zorgon's volume even got us on the jumbo screen not just once, but twice. The boos that followed were as loud as any. "Go back to Oklahoma City!" one fan shouted. "I will," Zorgon said, "as soon as the game is over."
