"A piece of history" for a padded 10-year-old folding chair made me chuckle, @Celtics. https://t.co/mKf1ZM0Udf— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) May 25, 2016
"Made me chuckle" is a nice way to phrase it. Here's what it says on the Celtics website when you click on the link to buy one of the chairs pictured above, for $399:
"Take advantage of this exclusive offer to own a piece of Celtics history by purchasing an authentic courtside seat from TD Garden, the home of the 17-time world champion Boston Celtics.
Each seat was in use at Boston Celtics games at TD Garden from 2005 until October 27, 2015.*
*Courtside seats were added and rotated in between 2005 and 2013. Specific use dates are not available for each individual seat."
Come on Celtics. You're better than this. It'd be one thing if these were seats from the old Boston Garden, but don't try to pass off anything since the Fleet Center days as "a piece of Celtics history" (unless you can guarantee it's from the 2008 Finals, but that'd still be a stretch). This is just degrading to your actual history.
Oh, and in case you're the one crazy person who wants to fill your entire house with $400 folding chairs from which somebody may or may not have once watched Wally Szczerbiak play basketball, you can't--there's a limit of four per person.
