And you thought the frozen Ted Williams got abused?
The bronzed Red Auerbach, the basketball mastermind who coached the Boston Celtics dynasty in the 1960s and puffed cigar smoke in opponents’ faces, can’t get any respect either.
Says Tacky Tourist Photos model Mike Faucher: “Who says you can pick your friends, but you can’t pick your friends’ nose?”
Makes you wonder: How many other tourists dig for bronze mucus — whether from an NBA legend or Revolutionary War hero?
(Mike Faucher is a die-hard Boston Celtics fan who attended the auctioning of the remnants from the Old Boston Garden. He could not afford to bid on Red’s half-smoked, dried saliva-covered cigar).
