The Loss of the Irish
The Boston Celtics of my youth spoiled me into thinking that my team would always win. Bird, McHale, Parish, and Ainge inspired a new generation of Celtic fans. This weekend, we lost an enormous contributor to the magic that is Celtic basketball.
On ESPN's Cold Pizza, sports writer Bob Ryan and Paul Silas shared their memories of Red Auerbach. I will always remember believing that the leprechaun in the Celtic's logo was Red Auerbach.
