Pilot Of Celtics’ Team Flight Delivers Eerie Takeoff Message Amid Storm

Most professional athletes typically like to just kick back, relax and enjoy the flight as best they can when traveling for road games.

The Boston Celtics didn’t fully receive this luxury Friday afternoon.

The Celtics set off for Houston a day ahead of their highly anticipated matchup against the NBA-best Rockets. It was far from an ideal day to travel, though, as Boston fell victim to a nasty storm that featured abnormally high winds and heavy rain.

As the wheels went up for the C’s trip to H-Town, the pilot of the flight informed those on board that the inclement weather would cause an unfavorable takeoff, but their specific choice of words wasn’t very comforting.
