Julian Edelman shows Celtics support with Instagram post


The city of Boston has had great luck in winning championships over the course of the past two decades and recently, the city saw two teams, the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox, win their respective championships just months apart from one another.

And now, one of the key performers on the Patriots' Super Bowl team is wishing the Boston Celtics good luck ahead of the start of their playoff run. Julian Edelman, last season's Super Bowl MVP, posted on Instagram to send a message to the Celtics before they play the Indiana Pacers on Sunday.

It's always nice to see another professional athlete support local teams. It's clear that Edelman is a true fan of the other New England sports teams, too. He has also been to plenty of Celtics games since coming to New England, and he shared a moment with Kyrie Irving before the team took on the Lakers in L.A.

This isn't the first time that Edelman has posted about a Boston sports team this month. After the Red Sox home opener, Edelman threw out one of the first pitches and jokingly offered to help out their bullpen.

The Celtics start their playoff series with the Pacers on Sunday. They are at home for the first two games before hitting the road to travel to Indiana.
