For a lot of fans of the Boston Celtics, common British sports phenomena like having the Prince and Princess of Wales in attendance of your favorite team’s game or the political component of supporting one’s (association) football team will be somewhat mystifying. It was a really British-inflected week for Celtics fans with the royal family in attendance for Boston’s first tilt against the Miami Heat and the continuing World Cup a focal point for Boston fans and players each.
To that end, the hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast thought it our duty to bring on Celtics Lab O.G. and resident British soccer fan and complicated-relationship-with-British-Royals-haver Josh Coyne to make sense of all of it for the primary in a special episode series we’re calling Peer Review.
Host Justin Quinn and Coyne get into a few of their (and the Celtics’) mixed emotions on having the royals in attendance last Wednesday, get up to the mark on the great and the bad of the World Cup, and wrap things with an all-time Boston alumni soccer squad.
