Celtics, Bruins are perfect examples of sports irony

In high school, my English teachers used to rant that students didn’t understand the element of irony. We were barred from highlighting it in our essays and the adults cringed when they heard us use it incorrectly. After following the 2014-15 Celtics and Bruins seasons, I now clearly understand an ironic turn of events. You almost have to laugh when... Read More
