Yeah… we all knew that. He could crap in our hats and we’d say thanks. Well… Larry is doing something a lot better than that.
Larry is helping build a learning center in Boston… in honor of Dennis Johnson.
The center is scheduled to open Friday at the YMCA on Huntington Avenue. “Who better than DJ? He was a big part of my life,” Bird said. The learning center will feature 10 state-of-the-art Dell desktop computers, flat-panel monitors, work stations, and portable, vinyl chairs. The center, like many similar ones around the country, is the brainchild of another ex-Celtic who played with Bird and Johnson, the indefatigable M.L. Carr.
Let’s not sell M.L. short on this. M.L. is truly a Celtic. I mean… M.L. willingly drove the team into the ground because he was told it would help the team in the long run. He was ask to take the team he loved and make it lose… and he did it. Right or wrong… that’s loyalty. And M.L. does community stuff like this all the time. He’s the driving force.
Actually… I don’t believe in jinxes… so I’m thrilled to see this. It’s about time.
Also… how about this for a nickname: “The New Look”
We’re always calling them “the new look Celtics.” Why not just call them… “the new look”?
Just a thought.
