Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

R.I.P., Red Auerbach

RedaI know this is a baseball blog, but Celtics basketball was always as big in my home as Red Sox baseball (a Mr. Rick Pitino changed all that…but I won’t go there tonight).

We always had faith the team would go in the right direction with Red around.  It seems almost fitting that he passed on before the first season of Celtics cheerleaders (something he was vehemently against) began.

It’s a sad day for basketball fans and especially the Auerbach family.  89 years isn’t long enough.  It never is.  God speed, Red, and thanks for all the wonderful memories.
