My wife, Debra, and I watched our beloved world champion Los Angeles Lakers banish the bullies from Boston back to Beantown at the Staples Center. Thursday night’s Game 7 of the NBA Finals was a magical experience we’ll never forget — for more reasons than you’d think.
Thursday was “Dump the Pump Day,” which encouraged residents to take public transportation for travel instead of driving. So we decided to leave our car at home and ride the train and bus to The Big Fastener. We had plenty of smart reasons to:
- We’d save at least $50 in gas and parking.
- We’d save the stress and aggravation of rush-hour traffic.
- Our car wouldn’t be at risk in post-game celebrations.
- We’d cut our carbon footprint and help cut greenhouse gas emissions while supporting public transportation.
