Kissing Up to the Celtics Dynasty – Locking lips with Red Auerbach

Smooching History: What Boston fan wouldn't want to nuzzle up to Red Auerbach's bronzed beard stubble?

Smooching History: What Boston fan wouldn't want to nuzzle up to Red Auerbach's bronzed beard stubble?

SUBMITTED BY: Al Kaufman    LOCATION: Quincy Market, Boston

Some of our Boston readers were horrified when they saw this tourist aggressively pick the nose of bronzed Celtics legend Red Auerbach.

So here’s Celtics fanatic Al Kaufman to balance out the negative karma.

“Just because I’m a heterosexual man doesn’t mean that I can’t show love for the Celtic Patriarch,” he says. “I would have done the same thing if I ever met Red in person. And I’ll do it if I ever meet Bill Russell or Larry Bird, but not Kevin Garnett, because he might hit me.”

(Al Kaufman is a freelance music writer who has never been rejected by The New Yorker magazine.)
