Bill’s Skype message comes with 3:44 left in the fourth quarter.

Bill_Celticfan: Dude, you there?

Titletown_Dougie: Yeah, what’s up?

Bill_Celticfan: karen just saw shannon’s facebook status…wants me to see if everything’s ok.

Titletown_Dougie: Everything’s fine. I just burned some hot dogs, thats all. good game, huh?

Bill_Celticfan: You’re watching?

Titletown_Dougie: no. listening. online radio.

Bill_Celticfan: well, it’s not 42-inch hi def, but it’s something i guess.

Titletown_Dougie: funny.

Bill_Celticfan: Karen says it’s never just about hot dogs. seriously, help me out. she’s not gonna leave me alone. i want to watch the end of this game in peace.

Titletown_Dougie: aw, poor baby. hey, think video skype would work?

Bill_Celticfan: why would i need to see you?

Titletown_Dougie: I mean for ME. Activate your webcam and turn it toward the tv.

Bill_Celticfan: only if you give me an answer for karen…she won’t lay off.

Titletown_Dougie: fine i burned the hot dogs because I was listening to the game on my computer because the battery was dying and I needed to get to an outlet. I kinda seared them cause it was faster…she wasnt happy…

Bill_Celticfan: gotcha… nice pierce jumper

Titletown_Dougie: yeah, i heard it

Bill_Celticfan: alright, activating web cam. see anything?

Titletown_Dougie: no. hurry up. 1 minute left

Bill_Celticfan: celts up 6. its over

Titletown_Dougie: not against the lakers…never over against the lakers

Bill_Celticfan: karen says make sure you pack up the tent tomorrow without being asked…and she says take a few pictures of nature and stuff and talk about how the fresh air is invigorating…she says to sound like you mean it or it’ll backfire

Titletown_Dougie: dude you’r killing me… skype video please

Bill_Celticfan: karens gone. thanx

Titletown_Dougie: no prob….video or what?

Bill_Celticfan: getting an error message…might be your bandwidth. Get used to it. 500 miles to yellowstone – 3472 square miles of nothin but trees and deers running in front of your car

Titletown_Dougie: the trees run in front of your car?

Bill_Celticfan: ha ha… remember, there’s always a second deer. if you miss the first one, watch for another following right behind…

Titletown_Dougie: you realize i’ll be in a tent for game 5?

Bill_Celticfan: you’ll need to drive to another frickin state to find a tv dude…and wi fi barely exists either…youre doomed…celts up 7 with 3 seconds…

Titletown_Dougie: 2 games apiece. Critical game 5 awaits

Bill_Celticfan:…so critical, and yet so impossible for you to see

Titletown_Dougie: not funny

Bill_Celticfan: here’s how to know if Shannon is mad tomorrow. When you get into the car, don’t put on your seatbelt. See if she tells you to put it on.

Titletown_Dougie: I don’t get it

Bill_Celticfan: it will tell you if she cares whether you go flying through the windshield in a car accident.

Titletown_Dougie: we have air bags

Bill_Celticfan: irrelevant…if she makes you buckle your seatbelt, it means she cares about your well-being

Titletown_Dougie: otherwise she wants me dead, is what youre saying

Bill_Celticfan: no not dead. just maimed enough so that the part of your brain that makes you a jackass gets destroyed

Titletown_Dougie: comforting

Bill_Celticfan: Here…try this for game 5:



Yeah...this should work for game 5.

Titletown_Dougie: hilarious.

Bill_Celticfan: have ya played travel monopoly yet?

Titletown_Dougie: no

Bill_Celticfan: you will

Titletown_Dougie: great

Bill_Celticfan: ok I gotta go sleep in my nice warm bed now. Oh btw, yellowstone is freezing at night, even in june

Titletown_Dougie: i know, thanks. remind me to punch you when i get back

Bill_Celticfan: will do…and hey

Damn, if I knew you were that desperate, I sould have given you a few sites to stream the game (questionable legality of course), but atleast it's better preparation than trying to research through malware-infested Google search results.

Anac - Thanks, but I don't think there was enough bandwidth for much of anything. Frowny Face.

Anon - Good stuff. Peace up to the respect, whatever that means.

The last two lines sounded semi-religious... Instead of amen, we have go celtics :)
Just my observation

@MJfromAUS: Yeah it's either a cult or an underground movement of some sorts.
