June 10, 1984

June 10, 1984 was a Sunday and sunny. I remember because that was the day Carol and I got married in the garden of a friend’s house.

The Lakers and Celtics played that day. I didn’t get to watch because I was getting married. The Lakers won, but then lost the series in seven the following Tuesday, June 12.

June 10, 2110 wasn’t a Sunday, but a Thursday. Still it was a sunny day, and once again on June 10 the Lakers and the Celtics were playing.

This time I got to watch the Lakers go down to defeat putting a ruinous cap on an otherwise very pleasant anniversary day.

Man, June 10, 1984 seems like a long time ago. Magic, not the sullen Kobe, was the center of the Lakers and they all wore short pants.

That was 26 years ago.
