RIP Red Auerbach (1917-2006)

"Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." -- "Red" Auerbach

Legendary Boston Celtics coach Arnold "Red" Auerbach (link to Wikipedia) has passed away. He was 89 years old. Auerbach coached the Boston Celtics to nine championships, including eight in a row from 1959-1966.

If you'd like to watch an interview with Red by Jim Rome, someone has been nice enough to upload it to YouTube. It's in five parts:

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4 - Part 5

High five, coach. Hat tip to the Celtics fans out there.
