I grew up as a Celtics fan, back when Tommy Heinsohn, "Jungle Jim" 
Loscutoff, and Bob Cousy were active players, and Johnny Most did the 
play by play.  The team practiced at the Hecht House in Dorchester, 
where I was allegedly attending Sunday School, and I would sneak out 
of class to watch the Celtics.  And I recall watching Red, with his 
ever-present cigar, coaching practices as intensely as if they were 
real games.  To him, every game was a real game.  Red Auerbach has 
passed away at the age of 89.
