Lakers Will Roast and Beet the Celtics

What other piece of produce comes naturally in shades of gold and purple? (Alright, red-purplish). And has a homophone defined as "to conquer"? As in, to conquer the Celtics? Laker fans, get yourself both colors of beets and roast them up for this easy, rah-rah dish honoring Game Six of the NBA Finals tonight. Rally together enough beets-eaters, and maybe the Lakers will even see Game Seven, defying the historical streak of basketball teams that were all unable to win after a 3-1 deficit.

None of them were eating enough color-coded veggies!
